The weather could not have been any more perfect for Christine and Jeff’s gorgeous outdoor wedding at A&M Gardens in Azle Texas. When I started the drive from Dallas to Azle and read the thermostat in the car and the outside temperature was 86 degrees, I almost did a doughnut in the nearest parking lot. After weeks of 3 digits temps, it was a fresh break in the heat! I made it to Azle to photograph the wedding (no doughnuts!) and was met by two people in love and ready to spend the rest of their lives together. They chose to do a first look. Couples choosing to see each other before the ceremony make my eyes fill with happy tears! Its such an intimate moment and other than us, its just the two of them spending such a beautiful moment together. Christine was surrounded by some of her best gals and they were a great group. I could hear boisterous laughs from outside before even opening the door. Jeff wore a great summer suit and Christine’s dress was flawless and perfect for her! Shannon, with Something-you worked her magic. Christine wore a beautiful comb in her hair that was given to her by her host family when living with them.
During the wedding ceremony, the light peeking through the tree foliage was almost magical….love that time of day! The wedding continued on to the reception where the couple danced the night away to a live band with all of their closest family and friends.
