The ultimate celebration in the joining of the Hoogeveen and Carruthers families! Their families had been waiting for this day for over 11 years, and what a party it turned out to be.
This wedding was also very special to me as I had also photographed both of Taryn’s sisters weddings. Not to mention some friends of theirs, other family members of Cody’s…there were A LOT of people there I got to see again. Taryn is the youngest daughter of Wendy and Mike. Cody is the oldest child of Kim and Craig Carruthers and the first to get married.
After meeting in high school and dating for 11 1/2 years Taryn and Cody officially tied the knot in a beautiful family-owned field in Winchester. With a forecast of rain all day it was a miracle that the rain held off until after the outdoor ceremony and everyone was inside the tent for the reception! With 300 guests and an enormous tent with a window ceiling, it was simply spectacular.
The speeches were hilarious, sweet and heartfelt and the dancing was intense (open bar!) with a fully packed floor still when we left. When I say fully packed , it was fully packed, solid (shout out to Matt Ferguson who always delivers).
I am going to put this out there -this was THE party of the year. Winchester/Chesterville you know how to celebrate! I love my country weddingssss!!!
This sweet couple deserved nothing but the best on their day and for the rest of their lives together...
