Howdy! How was everyone’s Pioneer Holiday? If you took anytime this weekend to explore Utah’s farmlands and pastures, then you’ll appreciate today’s bridal session featuring a bride, her veil, and the cow who ate it (actually, *her delicious-looking veil* and *the hungry cow who ate it* would be more accurate descriptions).
When Andi Saxton of Andi Saxton Event Planning & Floral Design emailed me about Logan bride-to-be Lacy and her bridal portraits, she mentioned the best part of the bridal photo shoot was when “the cow ate Lacy’s veil”–I was immediately intrigued.
Lacy, today’s beautiful featured bride, wanted city and country settings for her bridal shoot, so she and photographer Camille Stewart of T & C Photography headed to the Utah State University campus in Logan (where Lacy attened college) to capture the bride’s grand Maggie Sottero ballgown in front of the school’s bold, modern structures.
Following the photo shoot at USU, the duo headed to a pristine field in Paradise, Utah (the name says it all, doesn’t it?) to take some additional photos.
Paradise is where the real bridal portrait fun began! Lacy shares the details below:
While Camille and I were shooting photos in Paradise, we noticed these adorable cows nearby–we decided at the end of the shoot we needed some pictures with them. We tried and tried to get some good photos with the cows but decided to give up because they weren’t cooperating. When we picked up my dress to leave, somehow the veil was dropped on the ground. When we were getting in the car, I looked back at the cows and noticed one had my veil sticking half way out of his mouth! So my mother-in-law hopped the fence and ran after him screaming–she thought he was going to swallow it and die!
Luckily, Lacy’s mother-in-law was able to rescue the veil–although it never quite looked the same after its brief encounter with the cow’s mouth…
Thank you Lacy, Camille Stewart, and Andi Saxton for sharing this fun bridal session! And brides, let this be a lesson: When posing for photos on or near farmland, pastures, and fields, keep your eyes on your veil at all times–and beware of hungry, sneaky cows!
