Lauren & Justin’s Wedding Reception at OW Ranch in Granbury

Rain is never planned because, well, it’s weather.  It does what it wants and no bride wants it BUT when it happens we make the best of it.  In fact I kinda love this above photo because I think it perfectly captures the day that Lauren and Justin tied the knot.  We rocked it out at the reception, had a blast and then they headed out to their honeymoon.  It was perfect in every way thanks to the following vendors:

Loved all the yellow and gray detailing and of course their rangers baseball touches!

SO sweet!  Love Vince hugging on Lauren.

Photo booth time!  Thanks to Randal Stout Entertainment for the awesome photo booth, it was a surprise to Lauren and she loved it!

SILLY FACES!!!

There was some definite concentration going on for the bouquet toss!

These two are Baseball NUTS!  (yeah, they are a step above fans.)  For the end of the night they got a little more comfortable and donned these custom jersey’s.

 

Lauren & Justin’s Wedding at OW Ranch in Granbury

Lauren and Justin have stolen my heart.  They are a couple that is FUN and truly they are best friends.  Seldom have I been so inspired by a couples friendship then seen them follow it up with romance and I love it!  As they were joined in marriage a few weeks ago at OW Ranch on a very rainy day they were also building a new family.  Justin is blessing his new wife with his very cute, funny and ridiculously silly son Vince.  He is a ham and had us chasing him all night long to catch photos of his escapades from throwing flowers into a ceiling fan and using the garter as a sling shot.   Their day was full of perfect moments, with the above being one of them.  Lauren and Justin choose to have a private moment before the ceremony with out seeing each other by blindfolding him.  They spoke a few words, exchanged notes and stole a kiss.  It was perfect.  More coming tomorrow!

Lauren’s Daddy came in to see her for the first time in her gown, he gave her some sweet words of wisdom and there was not a dry eye in the room.

Lauren and Justin had a very stylish bridal party with some super fun shoes.  Love the flower girls Chuck Taylors!

Vince getting a little help from his Dad.

Love this big HUG Vince gave Justin.  They are so sweet and Justin is such a good Dad.

Before the ceremony the minister explaining to Vince his part of the wedding and what he needed him to do.

With out breaking tradition, blindfolded the couple spent a few minutes together.

Justin included the gorgeous key inside his not to his wife to be.

Lauren & Justin’s chic yellow and gray vintage theme was so pretty and you can see from their invitation set that from the first point of contact their guests knew exactly what to expect.

 

To show the family they were becoming they included Vince in a tradition of tying strands of string together.

Love little laughs before kisses.

Oh yeah!  Married!

Mallory & Ryan {Married} Part 1 Preperations, Bridal Portraits & Ceremony

This wedding was near and dear to my heart as it was my second wedding with the Bride’s family. A little over a year ago I photographed Mallory’s sisters wedding so I felt right at home with her parents, brother and grandma.  Although I may have been meeting Ryan’s family for the first time they were SO sweet and made me feel like I’ve known them for ever.  My strong attachment to them meant narrowing down photos for them has been HARD!!!  So in conclusion I will be sharing 2 blogs of this awesome Robert Carr wedding and Stonegate Mansion Reception.

I met up with Mallory and her gang of girls for preparations at Stonegate Mansion where we were joined by the hair and make up team of Halo Salon.  After Mallory slipped into her gown we headed to the chapel for her wedding.  After the Mom’s were seated they joined hands and walked to the altar to light the unity candles.  I knew it would be emotional and from the first moment those doors opened to reveal Mallory and her Dad, Ken, my heart beat faster.  Behind me I know Ryan’s must have been booming in his chest too as he grinned as she walked down the aisle towards him.  I loved that through out the day Mallory was always hugging on her Dad, from giving her away to right after the ceremony as she cried as he held her.

Today I also wanted to share a few of Mallory’s bridal portraits that we took a few months ago at the Gaylord and Lake Grapevine.  Bridals are one of my favorite things and it was so great to spend the afternoon with her and her Mom, Stacey.  Keep a look out for Part 2 with their romantic portraits, more details and a reception that rocked thanks to Randall Stout Entertainment!
