Both rain and shine, this wedding was a-mazing! The combination of how precious and warm Kevin and Mattie are with the beautiful sky and surroundings made this day one to remember. [I’m going to go crazy with descriptive words here, warning! BUT I’m just so excited to share the details of what this day was like]. It started out as a cloudy, sort of rainy day, but just enough bright cloudiness for us to think “this is still going to be a really beautiful day”. It did rain (and it poured - hard!), but call me crazy, the rain sounds against the clear reception tent with stunningly fresh florals all around (thank you Remi + Gold) just made the “getting ready” moments really beautiful and real. Not to mention, filming alongside the sweetest and most affirming photographer team made the day feel so smooth and fun (Sophie Epton Photography). The bright peach sun came out just in time for the ceremony and a perfect night sky to follow with an overwhelmingly amount of crazy dancing and laughter. I kept noticing Kevin’s gaze into Mattie and at one point him crying into her shoulder. I can’t handle it, you guys. These two are the kind of people you just want to hug and know.
I love first looks. During the first look, I tend to just stare and smile (and often cry) as I film the two smiling back and forth at each other face-to-face just taking it all in. It’s just the two of them excitedly and readily entering into their beginning as husband and wife, a piece of God’s loving on us through a selfless, forever friend.
Jonathan and Laura’s day was bright, colorful, and full of family. It felt like everything around me was perfectly detailed and arranged in the best way. Not to mention, the florals were literally from another magical world - I’m always amazed by how delicate florals can be so bold and warm up everything. These two love birds were seriously so sweet and gracious. It’s such an honor to share this one.

Austin & Ashton are the kind of people who listen with their eyes, smile with their whole faces, and talk to you warmly like an old friend. They are my kind of people - the people who love and cherish family (Ashton's sweet Nana made her wedding cake - amazing), have no hesitation on the dance floor, and hug you with a big squeeze. This wedding was so close to home for me in many ways. I'm so thankful I get to document the most precious humans. Xo.
There are many words to describe this wedding day - family, warm, serene, emotional, & elegant - but I'd say a great emphasis is placed on "emotional" as Charles just could not contain the tears not just when Jackie glided down the aisle with her dad but also throughout the rest of the evening. He would just be visiting with his bride and so sweetly admiring her, and then suddenly overcome by tears of pure joy! During their portraits after the ceremony, the photographer and I kept joking with them saying "Charles try to hold it together!" He ADORES his bride and she is completely head over heels for her groom. Also at one point during portraits, they quoted Pride & Prejudice in sync, "You have bewitched me body and soul. I love, I love, I love you." I cannot handle these two. They are so beautiful. I'm so happy to share just a snippet of their amazing wedding which took place on a stunning private property in Blanco, Texas.
Shawn & Em's wedding was a total dream. I cannot believe I got to document such a swoony story. Go ahead and take a look at their gazing and giggling and loving. These two are movie stars.
