I am excited to share the beautiful wedding ceremony of Jill and Patrick with you. Being asked to photograph a wedding in a small town in East Texas where I grew up, is exciting. Being asked to photograph an intimate wedding in a client’s home where they grew up with only close friends and family present is an absolute HONOR! I left Dallas that Saturday and arrived at Jill’s family home and was greeted by the warmth of her family and all that surrounded them. I was given a tour of the family home and was told stories of the fun had in their home. A wedding was a perfect event to add to the living room they used to gather in while her father tickled the ivories playing the “Boogie Woogie”. I was holding back tears listening to the touching stories they had under that roof. Patrick and Jill exchanged vows during their intimate wedding in the family room while guests witnessed the touching wedding ceremony. The family room was adorned with beautiful accents. I loved photographing all of it! Jill looked stunning her gown and Patrick was very handsome in his custom suit complete with pin stripes. Their family dogs were even dressed for success. They had the cutest ties! Jill’s wedding decor was complete with some sassy sparkly Toms!
The pine trees that line the driveway were a very significant to Jill and Patrick. We wanted to capture some gorgeous portraits with the two of them among these East Texas giants. Patrick was the one that suggested we sneak out in the August heat for a few outdoor wedding portraits. I am so glad we did….these images show the two of them in love on a very special day! The drought in Texas has left a lot of the greenery less green than usual. The pine needles that had fallen added a lot of warmth to the photos with the couple. Enjoy!
