She was there. He walked in. They met. They fell in love. He asked. She said YES. And now the big day was here!
Das Feld House ‘The Field House’ in German, is the perfect name for their home. After many months of clearing, cutting, trimming and manicuring…their yard, which is definitely more of a field was ready. Ready for Morgan & Aarons wedding as they decided a while back to host it on their own property. And with a property like this WHY NOT!?
Walking in I was greeted with many smiles and a room filled with warmth. The ladies enjoying the pampering of the hair and makeup artists, and Emery buzzing around playing with her dolls and enjoying all the little things she stashed in her purse. She had to have her purse with her at all times and I mean, why wouldn’t she, it holds a woman’s important items like her phone, lipstick and pretzels!
Morgan, moving here from the mid west doesn’t see her family all that often. Seeing the bond between her and her dad was absolutely inspirational. Loving, caring, and with the ultimate being tenderness.
The mom’s joined the bridesmaids in helping Morgan button her dress, as well as dealing with a few mishaps along the way… like maybe a missing button, and maybe their sweet dog Cali running through the mud prior to skimming over the bottom skirt of her dress. All in all I think the thing that kept everyone laughing was seeing the special undergarments Morgan selected to wear under her dress. I can’t say much more but they were colorful and super unique and made for some awesome inappropriate conversation.
Prior to the first look Morgan decided to have a special time with her dad. It was emotional and you can tell he is so very proud of her. She has accomplished a lot and he has been her #1 fan. She admires him and they have such a love and respect for each other.
After wiping the tears Morgan was ready to shed a few more when seeing Aaron for the first time. But not before doing a photo outside the wood workshop. We beckoned Aaron to come out onto the upper deck while Morgan waited below. It was after that Aaron headed downstairs and waited for his future bride.
They walked...they smiled…he was in awe…she was relieved. Finally in each others arms ready to start the rest of the day together. These two are vulnerable and have the ability to share their emotion so freely. They stopped and prayed and I have to say I have never had a couple pray at a first look. Inspiring and reminds me…there is always time to stop and pray!
With such a vast property we tried to take in a few different areas for their photos and later had the bridal party and family join as well. With walking paths here and there and props like a couch and a chaise lounge it was fun to incorporate a few different things!
Guests started to arrive and once settled Morgan was driven to the aisle by her dad in an old Bronco. With her dad walking her down the aisle and Aaron anxiously waiting, Aaron then firmly shook Doug’s hand to have his bride join him at the alter.
They said their ‘I Do’s’ and pledged to a God centered forever love. Before sealing it with a kiss they lit a unity candle (or tried to…I think the symbolism counts when the wind doesn’t allow for the candles to stay lit)...and then were pronounced husband and wife.
After their kiss the two of them looked so ecstatic. They are incredibly gentle and sweet with each other and equally can’t keep their hands off each other.
They were able to take a moment to enjoy some appetizers and sit quietly. We took that time to take a photo of them by their piano. It super special to them and I can see why. After hearing Aaron serenade us …WOW...he is super talented. I can only imagine how peaceful it must be for him to play for Morgan at any given time when they are home.
Evening was approaching and they joined the rest of the guests in time for dinner and toasts. These two are loved. That may not even be enough to say…admired, adored, cherished and people want to honor them.
Morgans little sister and maid of honor, Courtney, looks up to her dearly. She told stories of how she wanted to do everything Morgan did and be everything Morgan wanted to be. If that isn’t enough of a testimony of how wonderful Morgan is than I don’t know what is.
Aaron’s parents were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary. Another huge encouragement to Morgan and Aaron that couples can make it! There were 2 other couples in the crowd that were celebrating 51 years. What an example, it was awesome that each couple had some words of wisdom they shared with the couple.
Some of Morgan’s cousins did a group toast/ song in German. With everyone cheers’ing’ and laughing it was time to dance.
Not only are these two gorgeous to look at but their tenderness shines through. They love Jesus and people…and people love them.
I feel so honored to have been part of their day. I could feel such a sincere joy from the moment I walked in that day. They are now honeymooning and relaxing in Hawaii and rightfully deserved as they worked so hard to prep for their special day.
Morgan & Aaron you are loved!
