Magan & Landon | SURPRISE! Southern Jeweled Warehouse Wedding | Wichita Falls, Texas


Magan & Landon | SURPRISE! Southern Jeweled Warehouse Wedding | Wichita Falls, Texas

Magan contacted me just 6 weeks before their engagement party turned surprise wedding. I was in love with the idea before even meeting them! I was blown away with how well they planned it and how much they accomplished in such a short time all while keeping such a huge secret from everyone they knew except for her best friend Whitney and her husband and the vendors. Magan found the most amazing dress that was perfect for her, and that she could get in less than a month and Lori at Southern Jeweled did the decor and had Paula Hill with Designing Spaces put together the florals based off the photos Magan sent her with her vision.

I loved getting to see all the surprised reactions and love for them as they were married. I'm not sure if the shock has worn off yet, or if their family has forgiven them for the secrets they kept but I sure hope so! I will say it was the most relaxed pre-wedding time I've ever had, just getting to let Landon and Magan spend an hour together before they got in their places for the guests arrival was refreshing.  Congrats Magan & Landon! We wish you the best and thank you so much for asking us to be a part of your day!

Lindsey & Jordan - Muenster, Texas Engagement Session

I'm so excited to share Lindsey & Jordan's photos! Seth and I had so much fun getting to know them. We stopped in Muenster on the way home from seeing family for their session and it turned out to be the perfect evening for them with perfect weather and the most beautiful weather. Huge thanks to Jordan for missing most of the Cowboys game for Lindsey. 

Lindsey suggested we do their session at 4R Ranch Vineyards and Winery in Muenster, Texas. I had never been there but she could not have picked a better place. It was gorgeous as you can see in the photos. Lindsey looked amazing with her ponytail, and she has the most amazing smile and laugh. I love that during their session she wanted to do some in more comfortable clothes and a hat with her soon to be new initial on it. We also started their session off by including her daughter Lainey in some family photos. Lainey has her mom's beautiful smile and she was so sweet. I cannot wait for their wedding next year! 


Kenda and Brandt | Vernon, TX. Wedding


Kenda and Brandt | Vernon, TX. Wedding

Kenda and Brandt officially became a “Mr. and Mrs.” on October 21st. This was a one-of-a-kind wedding day which happens to be one of our most memorable and sweetest wedding days to date. This is such a great and relaxed couple that are so in love and don’t let anything get them down. Believe me, they had opportunities to be upset given their uncontrolled circumstances but these just aren’t the kind of people! I’m going to have to bring you along with us throughout their day and the story Kenda and Brandt will be sharing for a lifetime.

To start, the weather and its overcast skies weren’t quite cooperating for the big day but it turned out to be as bright as can be when Kenda and Brandt first saw each other on their wedding day. These two are so in love and it showed when they shared their first wedding day moment together, the first touch, on either side of the door outside the chapel of First Assembly of God in Vernon, Texas. They were later wed in a beautiful ceremony in front of many friends and family members that finished with style as they were led away in a Model T, with bling. Yes, I said bling! What else would you call a glossy turquoise Model T with polished brass and wood accents?

We followed Kenda and Brandt as they raced to the reception trying to beat the incoming storms. (Did I mention the Model T was a convertible?) They made it to the reception venue just in time for the driver to escape just before the storms hit the area on the outskirts of town. Success! Everyone’s here, planners already have everything going, DJ’s playing music and Branding Iron has set up their famous barbecue. The wedding party starts the grand entrance and pair by pair they all come in leading to the bride and groom. Everything is going off without a hitch and the tough part is over, they’ve escaped the storms and made it safely inside. As dinner is served rain started beating the metal roof and didn’t seem to be showing any sign of letting up anytime soon.

Wedding guests cleared the floor as an acoustic guitar started playing and Kenda and Brandt began their first dance as husband and wife. This was one of those beautiful moments as they danced beneath the sounds of the guitar and soft voice of the live performers. Then the lights cut out and the speakers ceased making sounds… We saw an iPhone LED flashlight kick on across the dance floor and then a couple more, and one by one guests started raising their phones and turning on their smartphone LED’s. The trend kept going as lights started to encircle us surrounding the bride and groom with light. The newly married couple continued the dance in the unconventional light not letting anyone know if they had even really noticed the lights going out. It was a setting right out of a cheesy romantic comedy
