Leanne and Aaron are real life ranchers.
They work together on a buffalo ranch in South Dakota, and met four years ago while working on a ranch in Colorado.
How amazing of a story is that?!
Leanne grew up in suburban California and Aaron is from rural central Minnesota, raised on a dairy farm. Their upbringings are very different, but their interests and work ethic aligned and brought them together on the ranch in Colorado. From there, life has taken them on tons of adventures and travels and they are loving every minute of it.
On the last Saturday of June, in Henning and Verndale, two small towns in central Minnesota, Leanne and Aaron became husband and wife. They were married in a beautiful and sentimental Catholic mass, followed by a lively country barn reception and dance at the Moenkedick family farm where the sound of cowboy boots on wood floors could be heard far and wide.
As the sun began to set, Leanne and Aaron danced as husband and wife, and basked in the glow of their new marriage as they prepare for a lifetime of new adventures together.
Leanne and Aaron – thank you from the bottom of my heart for inviting me into your wedding day as your wedding photographer. You both made me feel so welcome and were so much fun to work with. I love that photography is so important to you, and I think you will love the images we created. Especially the sunset images! 🙂 I hope your honeymoon was yet another incredible adventure and I know you will have many more together in the years ahead. Enjoy! xo, Laura
