This Texas southern wedding was so sweet. Their Denton University of North Texas Engagement session was so sweet! Her Texas Wildflower Bridal Portraits were breathtakingly beautiful and this couple is crazy in love and I was able to tell their story through wedding photography.
On a wedding day, its usually customary for the bride and groom to exchange gifts. Joshâ€™s giftâ€¦.an original song, he wrote and then sang to Kati. I held back tears and tried to keep it together as I photographed this magic moment. It was amazing. Scroll down and I dare you not to get a little misty eyed. Katiâ€™s gift to Josh was a ukulele. They exchanged them during their private first look. Both gifts were minimum 50 cool points in my book! Their wedding ceremony and reception was at the Milestone (this link has music) near Denton, Texas and this venue is great. Lots of windows (yay! natural light!), lots of white walls (yay! bounced light!), pretty decor and great staff. We managed to sneak out for a few pictures during the wedding near the golden hourâ€¦.ahhhh â€“ the light is so pretty then. It was on a Thursday in August and if you have been in Texas in August, you know its not the coolest time of year. Some of the other awesome details were pictures of the couple scattered throughout the venue, giraffe wedding cake topper, a thumbprint sign in for guests on a painted canvas, and a candy bar with all their favorites. Joshâ€™s dad officiated the wedding and I saw him using his iPad during the ceremony â€“ way to go technology DAD! They did a sand ceremony and sealed the wedding with a kiss. After they turned to back to their guests, Josh smiled and pointed towards Kati with the biggest grin as if he was thinking â€œthis is REALLY HAPPENING!!â€. It was a very sweet day and I am so grateful to have been welcomed and greeted so warmly with this couple and their families.

This last shot was by Ken. He was out to help me for the day. He showed me that my camera can actually make pictures like this. Super fun, right?
