Upon walking through the front door, I was immediately greeted, hugged, and introduced to those around me. Both Eli and Gracy's families have such a great warmth and love about them, they made me feel like a part of the famly within 2 minutes of being there. Needless to say, it was a fabulous way to start such a magical day. It doesn't happen very often that the first time I meet my brides and grooms happens on their wedding day, but living in Texas from the moment they booked, this is just the way it had to be. As soon as I met Gracy in person, she was everything I imagined and more from what I knew of her through our email and phone coversations; she was warm, full of love, trust, confidence, and joy...and so ready to marry Eli.
It was such an extraordinary thing to witness these families come together to celebrate this union! I don't think I've ever seen people so openly express how much they were on cloud nine!!
Gracy and Eli, thank you so much for trusting in me to capture all the moments of your wedding day bliss! I loved every second of it. I hope you enjoy a few of my favorites!
