Rustic Wedding at the Barn at Monterey Valley | Meggan & Brent


POSTED IN: Weddings

Meggan and Brent are two of the kindest, most hard-working people I’ve had the pleasure of meeting. Meggan recently graduated vet school, and she and her now husband breed goats! If you’ve been a follower of mine for a while, you may remember their adorable, goat-filled engagement session from last fall! For the last two years, Meggan has been dreaming up and planning their beautiful, rustic wedding at the Barn at Monterey Valley near their home in Allegan.

Meggan actually first reached out to me about wedding photography before she and Brent were officially engaged. Like me, she is a planner! And I’m sure juggling wedding planning and vet school plus their business was no easy task. But all the hard work totally paid off! You could see all of the personal touches around every corner. The entire day was just so completely… them. My favorite part was meeting their ring bearer, and I’m sure many of their guests felt the same way! Sunny the goat was an absolute perfect addition to their ceremony.

I told Meggan this blog post was probably going to just end up being a bunch of goat photos–they’re just so cute! But I did have lots and lots of favorites, both with and without their cutest wedding guest. Enjoy this recap of their beautiful rustic wedding day!
