Renee & Jeff's wedding was definitely one of the most joyful, happy weddings I have had the honor of photographing. The weather was absolutely perfect for their March 3rd wedding! Family and friends all helped out to set table and decorations, and made everything look so lovely. The decor, the barn, everything was so beautiful...but my favorite part was how these two Aggies both had smiles on their faces from beginning to end, and their love for each other just radiated through all the laughter they shared together! From getting ready, to the first look, to the exchange of rings, to their last dance at the end of the night, these two were always having fun and enjoying every moment to the fullest. I can't say enough sweet things about this couple, and how kind and fun they were! <3
I am SO excited to share with you the new Mr. & Mrs. Jeff Bookhout's absolutely gorgeous wedding day at The Waterstone in Celina, TX!
Huge shoutout to my amazing second shooter, Cortney Dani Photography! You are my favorite wedding photography teammate!
I can not even begin to describe my excitement to finally share this blog for Alec & Megan's gorgeous Arizona wedding. Their day was absolutely perfect from start to finish. Set in a family friend's exquisite home in Scottsdale, Arizona, this wedding was all about the details and the color! Megan is a long-time friend of my cousin (who was her maid of honor), so I have grown up knowing her forever! Megan modeled for me a few years ago, and we captured some amazing portraits that she loved! Because of that, Megan and Alec gave me full creative freedom...which was so fun! I tried some new things and had such a wonderful time capturing their beautiful, unique style in these timeless memories. And y'all: I had THE hardest time narrowing these down, so this may be a longer blog post than usual. Sorry, not sorry.
I really hope you enjoy just a little peek at how incredible this day was. Congratulations to Mr. & Mrs. Alec Nichols! Y'all had such a beautiful, Christ-honoring day and it was truly a joy to be a part of.
After the beautiful moments getting ready with her girls, Megan made her way to the first look! We decided that the desert setting would be spectacular for this event. These two were so excited to see one another! Alec even gave Megan a very special gift- a notebook he has been writing to his future wife for years! Bring on the tears!
PS: Isn't Megan's flower crown EVERYTHING!!!??
After pictures, it was now time for the ceremony. It was such a beautiful, Christ-centered, special ceremony. Alec and Megan's friends lead worship to start it off, and it was such a powerful moment. Side note- the aisle...was over a POOL! How amazing is that?!
They are married! Now introducing Mr. & Mrs. Alec Nichols!!
Before the grand entrance to their big party, we were able to get a few AMAZING sunset portraits of the bride and groom. These may be some of my favorite wedding portraits yet...these two were SO in love and the light, the setting, the timing (right after they were official!) was just magical. I mean c'mon y'all. <3
Food trucks at a wedding? Heck yes! "Short Leash Hot Dogs" and "Rollover Doughnuts" food trucks have arrived! These gourmet hot dogs and doughnuts were out of this world! Such a fun idea...the guests loved it!
After some touching speeches from the best man and maid of honor, it was time to get the party started! Alec and Megan had their first dance to start off the dancing, followed by the father/daughter and mother/son dances. Alec and his mom had the coolest choreographed dance and totally surprised the guests! After that, Megan and her mom shared a dance too!
Quite possibly the most accurate wedding cake topper ever. That is marriage right there!
The reception was such a fun party! As you can tell from these photos, no one had a good time at all ;) I had to hop on a plane and fly back to Texas and the party was still going strong! Everyone danced the night away celebrating the new Mr. & Mrs! Congratulations you lovebirds!
