Carolyn and Ryan’s wedding day FINALLY came! YAY! They booked us about a year ago and we have been SO excited for their wedding day!

Carolyn and Ryan’s wedding day was so perfect! We had a little bit of a thunderstorm blow through, but it was a quick 15 minutes of rain, and then the sun came out to shine for the ceremony and reception!

We are so thankful they chose us to photograph their wedding day!

COEUR D’ALENE IDAHO | SUMMER WEDDING IN IDAHO | NAVY+BABY BLUE | HAYDEN LAKE COUNTRY CLUB WEDDING

WHERE even do I start with this blog?! When Corey hired us to photograph his proposal to Haleigh, we were SO thrilled! She said YES (of course!) and they started planning their future wedding. They reached out to us and asked us to photograph it…IN IDAHO! We were so excited! We had the pleasure of traveling to Estes Park in 2018 for a beautiful wedding, so we were thrilled at the thought of traveling to Idaho!

Their engagements were SO much fun (See those HERE!), so we knew they would be total naturals in front of the camera.

The wedding day was absolutely PERFECT! Hayden Lake Country Club is absolutely stunning! The weather was perfect, and the day went off without a hitch! Corey ended the night by surprising Haleigh with a boat ride to watch the fireworks show they had planned. It was SO sweet watching her face light up as she realized what was happening. We are SO incredibly honored they chose us to photograph their gorgeous wedding!

BRENHAM TEXAS WEDDING | SPRING WEDDING | PINK+MUAVE+GOLD WEDDING COLORS | UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS WEDDING | DALLAS TEXAS PHOTOGRAPHERS

Kendall and Travis’ wedding day in Brenham, Texas was absolutely perfect! We woke up to all kinds of weather alerts saying rain, storms, even tornados possible! But y’all. It rained for about 5 minutes THE WHOLE DAY! Praise the Lord! We got to the church and Kendall’s amazing coordinator had ALL of her details ready and waiting for us (you rock Angela!!). We got started right away. Her pink and floral details just made us SO happy!

Kendall and Travis met through mutual friends in college. They both attended A&M University where Travis was in the corps of cadets and is now a commissioned officer of the United States Marines. (Thank you for your service Travis!) Their first date was to the Texas A&M Boot Dance with the Corps of Cadets, and the friends who introduced them were both in the wedding party! How fun!

After the ceremony we headed over to the reception area in downtown Brenham at the Barnhill Center. It was in the perfect location to steal the bride and groom away for a few more portraits! Everything was absolutely stunning. They danced the night away and are now enjoying the sweetest honeymoon in Colorado!

Kendall & Travis- We wish you love and happiness! We pray for your marriage daily, and can’t wait to see where life takes you two! Thank you for choosing us to be a part of your special day! Congratulations!

Nick + Tulip | Spring Texas Wedding | Aristide Flower Mound Texas

ARISTIDE WEDDING | FLOWER MOUND TEXAS | BLUSH + BURGUNDY WEDDING | DFW WEDDING | DALLAS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

Nick and Tulip got married on a beautiful overcast Saturday afternoon in Flower Mound Texas. Their venue, Aristide Flower Mound was absolutely STUNNING! We had no idea the venue was there. -In fact, Amanda has driven past it at least a dozen times and didn’t even know it was there! When we walked into the bridal suite, we all just gasped. There was pink everywhere (OUR COLOR!), the decor was beautiful, and the room was massive! Honestly this was probably our favorite bridal suite we have ever photographed in!

We were able to do all of Tulip’s details in the bridal suite, which is a HUGE plus because if we have to spend time looking for a place and hauling the dress/details somewhere else, that takes time from the day. We whipped through the details and then we were on to getting Tulip in her gown! Let me just tell yall…this dress from Baley’s Bridal was MADE for Tulip! Like woah. SO stunning! She got all buttoned up and stood in front of the grand mirror and we all just wanted to melt.

Tulip and Nick chose to do a first look, so we headed out to the back of the property at Aristide. Tulip headed outside with excitement in her eyes as she saw her groom waiting for her. He instantly scooped her up in a hug the second he saw her and they just had the sweetest moment! First looks are great for giving the bride and groom a moment alone. (kindof…we are there!) Sometimes it’s the only alone moment they get together of the entire day!

After their first look, we took some time to do portraits, and then it was time for the ceremony! Tulip is from Thailand and wanted to honor her family and heritage by doing a Rod Nam Sang, otherwise known as a Shell Ceremony. (More info on that HERE)

With the bride and groom seated next to each other (bride on the left,) and joined by the Sai Monkhon thread, the guest will begin to line up to have a turn with the couple. The two hold the their hands close together as their most honoured guests use a special shell, to pour water over the uniting pair.

It is customary for the person, while pouring the water, to wish the couple well and give advice on having a good life together.

This was such an amazing this to watch! It was incredibly inspiring to see all of the chosen guests come up and wish them well.

They sealed their marriage with a kiss and were on their way to the reception! We knew this reception would be fun based on Nick and Tulip’s personalities, so we were excited! They danced the night away with light up sunglasses and glow sticks on every person. Even grandma! At the very end, just when we thought they were partied out, they showed up in their pineapple costumes!! If you missed their engagement session where they surprised us with a “third outfit” go check that out HERE!

Nick and Tulp- We wish you all the happiness in the world! You two have a love that shines so bright and we are so thankful you chose us to capture your most special day! Congratulations!

TEXAS SPRING WEDDING | THE FARMSTEAD IN TRENTON TEXAS | PINK + NEUTRAL COLORS | DALLAS TEXAS PHOTOGRAPHERS

Clint and Alyssa got married on the most beautiful, sunny (but not too sunny) May evening at The Farmstead in Trenton Texas! We LOVE this venue and were so thrilled that they chose it!
When we arrived at the venue, Alyssa and her bridesmaids were in their adorable robes (we LOVE when bridal parties match each other!). We started on details in the most perfect bridal suite known to man -white shiplap and windows? Yes please! Alyssa watched out #weddingtipwednesday posts over on our instagram and knew to get wooden hangers for all the dresses. WOO!

We finished up her details and it was time to get Alyssa in her dress. Talk about a stunning gown from Bridal Boutique in Mckinney. After she got zipped in, it was Alyssa and Clint’s daughter’s turn!

-See adorable photo of Alyssa and her mom zipping Olivia’s dress.

Once they were all ready, it was time to get them married. The ceremony was short and sweet, and portraits that followed went perfectly! Only one minor mishap with a spider that likes Alyssa’s dress a bit too much…but we made it out alive!

Guests danced the night away after eating some of the best tacos we’ve ever had. It was a perfect evening for a perfect couple!

Alyssa and Clint (and Olivia!)- Thank you so much for allowing us to be a part of your big day! We wish you a lifetime of love and happiness!

LAKE TEXOMA WEDDING | WEDDING AT THE PROTHRO CENTER | SPRING WEDDING | POTTSBORO TEXAS | DALLAS TEXAS PHOTOGRAPHERS

Lauren and Matt had their wedding day on one of the prettiest days April has seen, with the most beautiful venue overlooking Lake Texoma. The Prothro Center in Pottsboro Texas was absolutely STUNNING! Lauren and Matt got ready in the cabins down by the lake. They decided to have a first look, so we took them up to a little trail which was perfect! They were SO sweet, hugging and kissing and loving on each other through all the photos!

Their ceremony was beautiful, and was made even more special with the officiant as one of the bridesmaids! We grabbed them for a few photos on the rocks, and then they danced the night away at their reception! We are SO thankful we were a part of this beautiful day!

WEDDING AT RUSTIC GRACE ESTATES | VAN ALSTYNE TEXAS | DALLAS TEXAS PHOTOGRAPHERS

When Kegan reached out to us to photograph him and Mackenzie’s wedding, I (Amanda) was SO excited! I grew up with Kegan! Him, my brothers, and I spent our summers riding bikes around our neighborhood, playing “sardines” in our house, and just goofing off! I have watched Kegan and Mackenzie’s relationship grow via facebook and was SO incredibly excited they chose us to photograph their wedding day!

Despite the weather being CRAZY, it was such a wonderful wedding day! The forecast called for 70 degrees and sunny, but it was more like 40 degrees and crazy windy. But Mackenzie didn’t miss a beat! She was happy and excited all day! The ceremony was SO very sweet, and the rest of the evening was full of dancing and laughter!
