Caroline and Terry {September Wedding at Rosemary Ridge}

It was meant to be. Caroline and Terry finding one another, and then them find me 🙂 I like to think so anyway! Before I knew Caroline and Terry I knew Terry’s mom and loved browsing her art and even bought a beautiful horse picture she made a few years ago. Working with Caroline and Terry for their engagement session, bridal portraits and wedding was comfortable and easy and we just clicked, made it all so fun. I love getting to spend the months of planning with couples as they go through this season. Sometimes the months of planning can have stressful moments, but C & T set out to enjoy every moment and plan a day their family and friends would also love and remember. Any reception that involves 95% Texas country music is fine by me! At the beginning of the ceremony we had a little surprise rain, but the wedding party had not yet walked down, so we had a little 3 min pause and then resumed 🙂 The reception was awesome! The first half was filled with the dinner, hugs and congratulations, the traditions of cake, toasting and dancing, even a special guest appearance by Pistol Pete! The last couple hours guests were entertained by the talented Cody Sparks Band. I loved seeing the closeness of the bride and groom with their families, the caring interactions between bride and groom, and the fact that everything came together the way they envisioned: Good friends and family with good music and good food 🙂 This was a wedding day I’d love to do again! Thank you to Brittany Smith for second shooting with me and always being an awesome assistant. Full list of wedding professionals who contributed at the end of the pictures. Enjoy the highlights from the day!!  P.S. – one of the best guest favors was the bagged coffee – smelled amazing as you walked into the reception barn and still at my office right now 🙂

Picture below was after our 3 min pause the let the rain finish 🙂
