I cannot imagine having grizzled veteran Gold Rush miner Tony Beets as a father-in-law, but that’s exactly what happened earlier this month for a young man named Taylor Mayes as he married Tony’s daughter Monica Beets in what looks to have been a beautiful and VERY Monica Beets wedding ceremony!
Monica and Taylor tied the knot on August 11 in Dawson City, Yukon. The Canadian locale provided an epic and awe-inspiring backdrop for the ceremony, which was beautifully captured by Jennifer Marie Photography.
Monica wore a full-length armless and backless wedding gown with a long lace train. And just in case you were wondering, yes, dad Tony Beets donned a suit for the occasion — although he didn’t go so far as to get his hair or beard trimmed short. Meanwhile, Monica’s mom Minnie Beets was looking only slightly less like a badass mine boss and a lot more like a proud and radiantly glammed mom in her floral dress:
And Tony wasn’t the only feller that overcame an aversion to formality for the occasion as Monica’s beloved dog Doyle got gussied up with a floral wreath for at least part of the ceremony and the photos:
Joining Doyle and Tony in the Beets men wedding makeover parade was Monica’s brother Kevin Beets, who had quite a bit less hair that his pop:
But enough about the Beets men, this day was ALL ABOUT Monica and her husband! Here are a couple more amazing photos followed by the full gallery shared by the Jennifer Marie Photography Facebook page:
CONGRATULATIONS to Monica and Taylor! The wedding looked absolutely AMAZING, and I hope Gold Rush fans will be able to see it next season! On a side note, I’m assuming these pictures will inspire some folks out there to consider a destination wedding in or around Dawson City, Yukon. If that’s you, then you need to head on over to the Jennifer Marie Photography Facebook page and book her now!
