Beeeeautiful day for a wedding in Texas. Big blue skies, puffy white clouds, with a nice breeze to make you forget it was a little warmer than necessary :) Lauren and Brent got married at the Raisin L Ranch; the perfect setting for their laid back, charming Texas wedding.
I can't believe the places and opportunities this job has brought me (more on that tomorrow ;) ), especially being able to shoot the wedding of an old friend from elementary school! Lauren and I had stayed in touch since then (thank you Facebook!), and when she got engaged, she contacted me about shooting her wedding! Uhmm...heck yes! I can't tell you how thrilled I was to get that first email from her! I'm talking over the moon excited :)
Lauren and Brent, thank you for asking me to be the one to shoot your wedding! I'm beyond honored to have done that for you guys! And it was such a blessing to get to spend time with you and your families while I was there!
Little shout out to those I got to "reunite" with on the wedding day!: The Ruckstuhls (love you guys!), Molly(your son is the CUTEST cowboy!), Lisa, Lacey, Shelly, Neely, Clayton, my favorite Calallen moms! I LOVED seeing all those familiar happy faces at the wedding!
Their first look!
Brent had a camo tie...only in Texas!
Yep! This definitely happened. Groomsmen + shotguns :)
The next shot on the left, FAV! Way to work it, Lauren!
One of the coolest custom cake toppers I've ever seen!
The groom's cake was a dirt cake! Hence the worm! haha, so Lady and the Tramp.
For Lauren and Brent's first dance, they did The Grand March. I had NO IDEA what this was until they explained it to me! Basically, everyone pairs up, and follows the bride and groom in a line around the property, and then eventually they end up on the dance floor surrounding the couple! Something like that :) Take a look! It was pretty exciting to watch!
