Jim and Marie Married at Tenroc Ranch in Salado, TX

Jim and Marie both serve in the military, and something about their wedding really touched my heart… I think it was because they were so obviously in love. In the hours leading up to the ceremony, the mood was peaceful and relaxed as Marie and her matron of honor got ready. Following the ceremony, we went right outside to get the pictures of Jim and Marie together– they were all smiles, and simply radiant! The wedding took place at a fantastic venue, Tenroc Ranch. TR has a few different facilities available for weddings and then of course there are beautiful outdoor options as well. For the mid-December wedding Jim and Marie opted for an indoor ceremony, which turned over seamlessly for the reception in the same room. No matter how many times I see the “anniversary dance” at wedding receptions, it usually brings a few tears to my eyes; it’s just such a sweet thing to see couples who have lasted so many years. Jim’s parents had just celebrated their 44th the day before Jim and Marie’s wedding.  As you can see, Jim attended Texas A&M, and of course the rich traditions made their way to the reception celebration!  The wedding was simple and sweet and I’ll always remember this couple! Congratulations!!!

Jim proposed to Marie under a large oak tree, so this shot was extra special.
