Emily & Van – 8-17-19

A note from the bride:

We met at a food and wine festival on May 2, 2014. We went on our first date one week later and have been together ever since. Van proposed on a family vacation in traverse City Michigan. He took me to the top of a lighthouse for the proposal. We had lunch at a super cute, small cottage restaurant just the two of us following the engagement. He had the engagement planned for months prior and I thought he was never going to propose! It was a HUGE surprise!

This wedding was so beautiful with lots of fun! These are only SOME of the shots from the big day!!

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!

Jordyn & Michael’s wedding blog – 6-8-19

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!!

Carla & Robert’s wedding preview blog

Carla & Robert have been together for 10 years. The day of the wedding, it was raining so hard with strong winds, we thought it would never stop. They really wanted their ceremony overlooking the water at Lake Ray Hubbard. They are always on the lake so what better setting than The Landing at Chandlers.

Just before the ceremony, the rain and wind stopped and the sun began peaking through the clouds. It was beautiful. There were so many funny moments during this wedding, some of the most fun and crazy people to be around. I have known them and their family for a while now. It took me a while to pick and choose the ones I wanted to edit for this preview blog, so many special moments to tell their day.

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.
