Lacy & Gabe were married last Saturday out in East Texas in Sulphur Springs. I had so much fun at this country wedding and I just adore this couple. This week I am trying something new with my wedding post and splitting it up into two. This post will focus on the moments and the details and part two will be all about the couple. This is how the day is split up to me and so I thought why not post it that way! I love capturing the things that happens, anticipating the moment and getting the reaction. These photos tell the story of the day and speak to the emotion of the special people at the wedding. Details are all about the things that express the couple and the things that they spent so much time thinking about leading up to the wedding.
Lacy and her girls prepped at a amazing home that her friends parents own. It looked like an old barn and was filled to the brim with eclectic antiques and decor that made my head spin, in a good way. I wish we had more time there to take advantage of it but the locations all day were killer and did not disappoint. The wedding was held at the Hopkins County Museum and Heritage Park. The ceremony was in a quaint little chapel and the rest of the park…WOW! So many little vignettes (that is photographer speak for locations) that you will see more of in their romantics post. Then we trekked further east into the country for a honky tonk reception in Mount Vernon at the Trey-Deuce Domino Saloon complete with a good ol country band. Everyone was so relaxed and chill, Gabe even changed into something a tad more comfortable than his tux and donned his jeans and boots. It was such an amazing day and I am so lucky to have been a part of it.
With out further ado here are some of the beautiful moments and things from Lacy & Gabe’s East Texas Wedding! Stay tuned for a blog tomorrow with romantics and their wedding day slide show!

The benefit of two shooters. Right before the photo Sarah took above, I snagged this from another angle and with a differnt type of lens. Two photographers supply our clients with variety.

It may be strange but I just LOVE this detail shot of Gabe's belt buckle and the beer in the old mason jar. So Texas, so right.

I am noticing a theme in my grooms cakes lately, animals. A deer at the last wedding and this time around a road kill armadillo!
