I was so excited to have the opportunity to shoot a wedding at the Willowood Ranch Chapel in Bells, Texas. It is such a beautiful venue in a hilly section of North Texas surrounded by trees. Unfortunately it was freezing cold and windy! But Izzy and Eli and their wedding party were wonderful and braved the cold for photos outside. Originally the plan was to not do a first look, but the ceremony time meant they would have no daylight photos featuring the chapel and her parent's Ford Model A. So her dad drove her to the chapel to meet Eli where he walked from the front doors on this long trek to see his bride! I love love love how this worked out, because she was all smiles when he opened the door for her!
Another detail is that Izzy had two wedding dresses! Her dress was a classic gown by Rosa Clara that had a detachable train with simple bows on the back. Her ceremony dress was her mothers that was made by her grandmother and fit her perfectly! It also had a detachable train and bows on the back!
I hope you enjoy seeing the rest of their wedding, there were so many special moments, like when Izzy kissed Eli, surprising him, because they were going to wait for their ceremony to kiss that day! Thanks so much for having Seth and I photograph your wedding! We had a blast!
