I'll never forget the first time I met THE Trevor Barner and Kaylee, (used to be Reed, but actually I still call her Kaylee Reed haha).
We had just moved to Wyoming from Kansas. My husband worked for one of their neighbors, and if you aren't familiar with the ranching community, branding season is one of the biggest deals EVERRRR. Like, I think it's one of the main reasons people even raise BEEF. Haha.
Anyways, back to Trevor and Kaylee. The first time I met them... It was our very first branding in Wyoming. I took our then, 3 kids, out to their place and met up with the crew my husband worked for. I met Kaylee's mom, first I think, and she said, "Ohhhhh, Kaylee is having a day."
What looked like to me to be a very organized, drama free gather, was in fact not. Unbeknownst to me until a couple years later. Calves kept crossing the creek, mamas were being silly in the chute, and I think a couple were escapees. She wasn't in the happiest of moods, and to be honest at the time, I was like, "Who is this chick?! And just who does she think she is??"
Then there was ole Trev. He's got to be one of the most carefree, whatever-happens-happens people I've ever met, and he seriously has 9 lives...
Fast forward a few months, that same year, we hung at our local Ranch Rodeo. We became fast friends. I can talk to Kaylee like no time has passed between the months that sometimes go by when seeing her, (because their place is in BFE lol). She tries to be a hard butt, but she's got one of the softest hearts I've met, and she truly loves her husband, friends and family.
And that is why Trev and Kay's relationship works. They have a love like no other. I was so honored when they asked me to take their wedding photos. I knew it would be a heck of a celebration, and that it was!!
Plus, they got married at like the COOLEST location ever. The Cheyenne-Deadwood Stage Trail and Hat Creek Stage Station (http://www.wyomingtalesandtrails.com/deadwood.html) is totally worth driving off the beaten highway to go see!!
