Reg and I dove a couple of hours north this weekend to his hometown for his father’s wedding reception. The ceremony had been a couple of months before and was a small, personal affair, but the reception was full of friends and family. It was held at the old one-room-school-house turned community center (it’s really is a small town) and was so much fun other than my dog running away. Reg’s dad, Big Reg, and his new wife Rebekah are so sweet and have the biggest hearts, and it’s so wonderful to see them so happy together. (Side note: They met when Big Reg hired Rebekah as his fiddle teacher. How romantic and adorable is that?)
Since the reception was extremely casual as well as hot, I decided it was okay if I rocked a summer dress and my cowgirl boots. I had just found this dress a few days before for half off at Francesca’s and decided it would be perfect for the occasion. Even though I paired it with a thick belt here, it’s synched at the waist and doesn’t require one, which I love for work days when I’m sitting anyways. I found these cowgirl boots at specialized Western/South-West second hand shop in Oakland. They’re gorgeous and comfortable, made with real, thick leather that means they’ll probably last longer than anything else in my closet.
Getting these photos was truly frustrating. Reg was a good sport about taking them even though it was a busy day, but I didn’t realize the camera settings had gotten changed and very few turned out focused. We actually did three or four rounds of photoshoots before I figured out why all the photos were blurry, and I’m still kicking myself over it. Fortunately I was able to scrape together enough for this post, and with any luck, the next shoot will go a little more smoothly!
