Beauty and The Bulls
Jared and Kassie’s love story started at their local county fair. We love Kassie’s description of the fateful night they met:
My friend and I were county fair hopping and decided to attend the neighboring counties fair that night! Per usual we were posted up in the beer garden, sipping a few too many Busch Lights when Jared and his friends were spotted. It appeared they were doing the same thing as us! One of his friends came over to us and asked us who we were, where we're from, because that’s what nosy Nebraskans do! One thing led the next and our group was intertwined with theirs, and that's when I spotted Jared. I could tell he was shy and by that time the liquid courage kicked in and he didn't stand a chance! Honestly, the rest is history, I went home the next morning and told my mom I met the man I was going to marry, when you know, you know! Jared raises bucking bulls and works on his family farm, which automatically attracted me to him, growing up on a farm myself.
For their wedding, Jared and Kassie created new memories in places closest to their hearts. Their church ceremony took place down the dirt road where Jared was raised, and their reception was held at the fairgrounds where Kassie grew up showing cattle.
Andrea of Andrea Zahourek Events used the couple’s cattle brand and cowhides in the décor for a bohemian/western vibe. They also incorporated their parents and grandparents wedding photos to honor them and to show the appreciation they have for their marriages.
