Melissa and Cody – Wedding at The OrchardAzle, TX

Melissa and Cody are married!  We started the day thinking the rain was going to keep us from being outside, but it did not!  Melissa and Cody chose to see each other before the ceremony and luckily it quit raining just in time!  They read notes they had written to each other and then Cody turned to see his bride for the first time and I think his breath may have literally been taken away.  They held the ceremony inside surrounded by their closest family and friends and said sweet vows to each other that made me tear up!  After they shared their first kiss, Cody smashed the glass (a Jewish tradition that they incorporated into their wedding) and they were on their way up the aisle as husband and wife!  Then it was time to celebrate and Melissa and Cody spent the rest of the evening enjoying chatting and dancing with all of the important people in their lives.  At the end of the night they spent one last dance together, taking in the day and each other.  They were then sent off to their new life through the glowing lights of sparklers.  Congratulations to Melissa and Cody!


Thanks to all of the wonderful vendors!

Mr. & Mrs. Garrett Smith-Wildcatter Ranch Graham, TX

Last weekend I drove out to Graham, TX to photograph Katie & Garrett at the Wildcatter Ranch. What a beautiful location! The ceremony sat upon a hill looking over a beautiful piece of land. It was definitely a picture perfect day-all except for the wind! Katie & Garrett decided to see each other for the first time before the ceremony in what we call a first look. We especially had fun as we drove around on a little golf cart up and down some really steep hills. We found a pasture of longhorns, and as we began to shoot as they all started to come up to the fence! It was such a great moment.
