Courtney & Michael’s wedding June 29, 2019

This wedding was so beautiful from start to finish! The day began extremely hot, the kind of heat that when you step outside you can barely breathe, but as the ceremony began, storm clouds began to roll in and you could hear thunder in the distance, the weather cooled off, then just as we started bridal party photos, the wind picked up, and you could see lightening strikes way off in the background, clouds were getting darker, but I kept shooting and they were all for it! They were so much fun to work with, everyone was.

Due to the weather, there was a bad accident on the highway coming in, so the minister didn’t make it until the middle of the ceremony, so the mother of the groom officiated the first half of the wedding and it was simply beautiful!

A note from the bride ~

Michael and I met our Freshman year of high school at Jenks High School. We met in our biology class and started talking in class and then it went from there!

Michael took me to his families land, we call it the farm, on the opening day of hunting season (October 1st) in 2017. He went out that morning to go hunting and when he came back he asked if I wanted to go for a ride to the waterfall (a place on the land that is very pretty and is a waterfall when there is water running). We went to the waterfall and that is when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!

Andrea & Christopher’s wedding previews

A note from the bride:

Chris and I met in college at UT-Arlington in 2008. We had mutual friends who constantly tried to set us up on a blind date. We dated in 2009 but decided to stay friends. My friends would always tell me “You’re going to end up together, you guys are going to get married.” We were in and out of each other’s lives for 6 maybe 7 years before we decided to go on a date again. It was like best friends meeting up for dinner, after that is history. We dated for 3 years before he finally proposed!
Proposal: I had been dying to take a trip somewhere and decided on Chicago in May of 2018. We had our trip booked and we were ready to go. Within the first few hours there I was already irritated with him. He was being so grumpy and said I was constantly lingering over him. To my defense, the hotel room was small and I had nowhere else to go. (Little did I know he was trying to get the ring out of his bag to put in his pocket.) We walked around the city for a few hours and decided to go see Cloud Gate aka “The Bean” in millennium park. I had him take a picture of me alone and then asked him to jump in with me. He gave a random stranger his phone and I guess secretly told him he was about to propose. As he walked up to me the stranger yelled out “Do you want me to take a photo or a video?” I was thinking in my head, “this guy must be an iPhone user, not a droid user.” The next minute I know Chris is on the ground and I’m thinking what are you doing?! But there it was, a pretty box with a shiny ring! I didn’t even hear him say a word, I just saw the ring and was like, “Are you serious?” He knelt there patiently waiting for me to say something. Before I could say a word, I grabbed the ring out of the box and put it on my finger. The perfect fit! I then hear someone yell in the crowd “What did she say?” That’s when I realized what was really happening.

Katherine & Nate’s rainy day wedding

My sweet couple booked the Dallas Arboretum and Botanical Garden for the beautiful scenery and flowers. They had planned to get married in the Secret Garden with reception to follow in the Camp House.

Unfortunately, that dream was crushed with 100% thunder and lightening storms. But, I was able to still create special memories for them from today. I didn’t want the rain to ruin their big day. The ceremony took place inside the living room of the house, it was packed and tough to move around, but we made it happen. The reception was under a tent, but the rain was so intense it began coming through the top in some areas. She wanted so badly to have her sendoff out front and leave in a golf cart, but instead, due to the rain, I suggested we do it under the covered patio, it couldn’t have been more perfect! Sometimes rain can mean good luck on your wedding day 

A note from the bride:

We met in college in New York and were friends for about a year before we started dating. We had only been together for a month when we graduated but we decided to move to Austin where Nate would be getting his Master’s, and then about a year after that we adopted two cats who are our de facto babies. A traditional proposal wasn’t our style so when we decided we wanted to get married we planned an engagement day where we went out to dinner at a nice place, came home to champagne, and exchanged homemade gifts.

Courtney & Susy’s wedding previews

Please tell us how you and your fiancé met, also give us a paragraph on the proposal:
How We Met: There’s a short story and a long story. The short and easy story that we tell most people is that we met through friends. The long story is that we both joined a Meetup group for LGBT women. If you’ve never heard of Meetup before it’s pretty cool. It’s not a dating app, it’s a people with common interests getting together app. There are all kinds of Meetup groups (ex: book clubs, dancing, foodies, young professionals, etc). Susy and I had never been to a Meetup before, this was our first one. We both were unsure about going but something (I’d like to think it was Fate) compelled us to go. We met a bunch of people at a cool restaurant called The Lot near White Rock Lake for food and beers. We had so much fun we went for a walk along the lake and then with a small group to Dave and Busters. At Dave and Busters, Susy and I played a zombie virtual reality game where we had to team up to defeat zombies. At the end of the game, it scored us as being 87% compatible (a number we still joke about today). From the moment we met, there was an instant connection. They say when you know you know, well I think we both knew this was something special. The rest as they say, is history. (This is taken from our website, feel free to check out more at www.courtneyandsusy.com)
The Proposal: I (Courtney) proposed to Susy on her 30th birthday. Her birthday also happened to fall on the 3rd year, 3rd month, 3rd week, and 3rd day that we had been together. I’m a bit of a numbers nerd, so I woke her up at 3:33am and told her I had an early birthday surprise I had to give her. I made her a love book (https://lovebookonline.com/) about all the things I love about her. On the last page it had a stick figure me asking her to marry me. Of course at 3:33am in the morning she was not about reading the whole book. She was tired and wanted to stop reading the book by like page 15. She had no clue what my plan was, but after some coaxing she read the whole thing. When she got to the last page her mouth dropped open and she looked up and I had the ring. It was a total surprise to her! We got to share the news with the rest of our family as we celebrated her birthday. It made for a very good way to turn 30!
