Growing up, Emily was a bit of a tomboy. She spent lots of time at her grandpas farm in Dalhart, Texas. It is a special place to her, and she wanted to have her bridals taken there. One summer she was there, she gained a friend, a horse named Buddy (chestnut color below) She was there when he was born, and he would lay his head on her lap.She also shared a story of skinning a snake at the farm with her Papa and brother and sister. "Pretty big change from back then to wearing a fancy white lace dress out there...but might explain a little more why the 'tomboy' came out so much that day", says Emily. You would almost think she wasn't wearing a wedding dress, but instead jeans and a t-shirt the way she went around the farm. Her second nature of just being there kicked in and it was like she was 12 years old again.
