Despite Adrienne & Drew hosting their wedding at their family’s private ranch, I have still had the opportunity to photograph here before! Last year I took wedding photos for Adrienne’s cousin and was grateful to be able to catch up with Megan & Ryan at this wedding. (read more about that fun experience here!) There is something so humbling about being able to recognize family members and remember who had the best dance moves;)There is no shortage of them in this family! The ceremony was the kind of ceremony every photographer dreams of photographing, love, tears, smiles, beautiful people,  & of course beautiful light. The dance floor was always full but Eric made sure to snag the bride & groom to take advantage of being in the middle of nowhere by capturing a long exposure with the stars. My biggest take back from this wedding though will have to the sweet song that Drew sang to Adrienne  during the reception, the kind of music that warms your heart and reminds you what love is all about.

When Cindy first e-mailed us she ensured us that they were uber-dorks which immediately got our attention. They did not disappoint from the very beginning. From their stormtrooper figurine website to crochet superheroes, I knew that we were going to get along just fine on the wedding day. They held their wedding at the Sam Houston hotel which offered an outdoor feel inside a hotel ‘ballroom’. On the wedding day they incorporated an Iron Man comic book, books for centerpieces, & of course the crochet superheroes (instead of bouquet & garter toss). We were also lucky enough to grab a photo with their blow-up Nicolas Cage who also made a special appearance at Cindy’s bachelorette party. They had a super fun reception complete with a set of giant jenga that always seemed constantly on the verge of knocking over. Props to Cindy’s mom on all of the beautiful florals and Honeydew events for her help on the day of!

We first met Jenna & Chris on Halloween night at Mel & Dave’s wedding in Puerto Rico. Jenna was dressed as a 1920’s flapper and Chris pulled off a very convincing  Will Ferrell in the move Elf! It was such fun wedding and led Ben & Eric all the way to San Clemente, California for Jenna & Chris’s wedding at Casa Romantica. Such a beautiful backdrop for the wedding ceremony set looking over the Pacific Ocean. Such a magical night, the sunset was perfectly timed for portraits and the first dances were just in time to catch the evening twilight. As the light faded everyone enjoyed a wonderful dinner set under the stars. They danced the night away in the breezeway looking over the ocean and stars.

It’s hard to sum up Carrie and Kaye’s wedding in a few short sentences. It still stands in my mind as one of the best weddings I’ve documented, and for a variety of reasons. Fischer Hall, as always, brought a rustic peace and serenity to the day through it’s bucolic setting in the rolling Hill Country and the massive ancient oaks and pecan trees that oversaw the affairs of the day from above. Coupled with the great talents of Emily and company at Bird Dog Wedding and the whole place danced with tasteful crafty color and beautiful displays of rustic style. The people were top notch, really and truly; a boisterous bunch hailing from near and far but all set on the task of merrily celebrating the marriage of two of the absolute happiest people I’ve ever come across. The moments of joy were numerous. Their love, and everyone else’s for that matter, washed over the place time and again that day. Carrie and Kaye left their mark.
