William & Laura’s wedding previews

The wedding was beautiful and intimate with only a small number of family and friends.

From the bride:

We met through a mutual friend many years ago, later reconnected and had a beautiful baby girl
Olivia. The proposal was during a family trip to San Antonio. We went on a nighttime walk around the
riverwalk, ate dinner, and then he proposed in front of the fountains on our way back to our hotel.

Lauren & Nathan’s wedding previews

From the groom ~

Lauren and I met while we were both attending law school at LSU in Baton Rouge. From the moment I first saw her in those leopard leggings during my Employment Discrimination exam (somehow it ended up being my lowest grade that semester), I knew she was the one. After deploying some super smooth tactics, including pretending like I didn’t know who she was, I somehow convinced her to study with me at the library. Eventually, after buying her countless smoothies during our study breaks, she finally agreed to go on a date with me! We decided that we would go to the movies for our first date and I even let her choose the movie thinking she would choose some boring chick flick, but to my surprise, she chose Mad Max Fury Road. Once we got to the movies, I offered to buy some snacks expecting that she would choose popcorn and candy, but again to my surprise, she chose a pickle…yes, a pickle. It was at that moment that I knew two things: 1) this was not your typical girl; and 2) I had to make her mine. There was really just one more test for Lauren to pass at this point – meeting my now 10 year old golden retriever, Marley. Lauren and Marley became best friends immediately upon meeting each other. In fact, the first time Lauren met Marley, they rolled around on the ground together for at least 15 minutes. After I graduated and moved to Shreveport to start my job at Bradley Murchison Kelly & Shea, our future seemed a little uncertain as Lauren was set to take the Texas bar exam in May of 2016 and planned to move back home to Dallas, where she all but had a job lined up at a prominent oil and gas firm. To my surprise, Lauren told me she was fully committed to me and was going to take the Louisiana bar exam and search for job opportunities in Shreveport. When Lauren told me this, it was one of the happiest days of my life. Shortly thereafter, Lauren accepted a job with the twenty-sixth judicial district court for Bossier and Webster Parishes, where upon graduating and passing the bar she clerked for the Honorable Parker Self and the Honorable Michael Nerren. In December of 2016, Lauren met her new best friend in this world – a tiny miniature longhair cream Dachshund named Nash, who is as ornery as he is cute (Lauren would kill me if I somehow didn’t mention Nash during this whole thing). During the summer of her clerkship, Lauren took and passed the Texas bar exam. After Lauren’s clerkship, she accepted a position as an associate attorney with Langley, Parks, Horton & Maxwell in Shreveport. We closed on our new home in Shreveport on August 4, 2017. On that same day, Lauren made me the happiest man in the world by agreeing to marry me after I got down on one knee in our empty new home filled with candles and rose petals. We then shared a picnic of her favorite food (spaghetti) and celebrated with champagne and chardonnay (her favorite white wine). We have been celebrating ever since and are excited beyond words to become husband and wife. We cannot wait to celebrate with our closest friends and family on October 13, 2018 in Dallas, Texas.

Laura was married today at Piazza in the Village 🙂

I have been holding on to her beautiful bridals for a while, we shot these at Las Calinas Canals on a very windy day. Unfortunately her veil flew right off her head and into the canal that day but thankfully she was able to get a new one in time for the wedding.

Here are some of our favorites.

Jorge & Bianca’s wedding blog

From the bride:
Jorge and I met in college. He had transferred in to play on the men’s basketball team and I was on the women’s basketball team at the time. Specifically, we met in the gym while shooting around. The proposal was nice and simple. I knew it was coming. Jorge is not good at surprising me. It may be that I am just very speculative. We went to dinner and he popped the question 🙂

Britnie & Brian’s wedding blog!

From the bride:
How we got here, in a short version

When I graduated from the academy, I proudly posted a “selfie” in uniform on social media. Well, it didn’t take long for Brian to start poking at my badge number or how “shiny and clean” my badge was.

Being the sarcastic person I am, I couldn’t let it go and some time later I convinced him to help me with a few things at work. Well, he still helps me with stuff at work but not as much anymore.

3 years of trips to Missouri, kayaking, hiking and date nights that somehow always ended up at a hibachi steakhouse… Oh, and can’t forget having three of the most “special” lab mix dogs that obviously rule the house. Here we are, incredibly blessed to have the opportunity to get married in front of all of our closest friends and family.

We shot at my favorite Dallas Arboretum. When she arrived I realized she did not have a bouquet but luckily my bride just before her was still there and had THREE!! That bride’s Aunt had made them and they were beautiful. She so generously offered one to Britnie to use.

These are some of our favorites.
