le san michele wedding_001

As lovely a notion it is that every wedding be dripping in sunshine and go off without a hitch, the fact of the matter is that sometimes in this life it rains, even on wedding days.

But when it does, I like to think of it as a unique opportunity for brides and grooms.

An opportunity to smile despite a setback.

An opportunity to get a picture of just how deeply they are cared for when friends and family immediately start reminiscing over funny memories to dry up your tears. Or flock to wipe down wet ceremony chairs — two different times.

An opportunity to let go of perfection and embrace the surprises in life, together.

Take a look at some of my favorites from Daniella and Deke’s rainy wedding day at the beyond gorgeous Le San Michele in Buda, Texas.

couples who laugh together

Sunny days that aren’t too hot

empty downtown streets

Jen Rios Weddings for trusting me with this sweet couple of hers

Beauty and the Blush for highlighting Kimberly’s naturally gorgeous hair and face like POP BAM WOW

a pretty horse named, Dakota

Kimberly has long been involved in the world of equestrian competition and so it was an absolute must to include pretty little Dakota in some of their portraits as well!

Happy Thursday, little darlins! Today’s blogpost is a double feature of sorts because I’ll be sharing a few of my favorites from my cousin Nathan and his stunning wife Sarah’s maternity session but you also get the instant gratification of also viewing some of the newborn portraits we made after baby Kate arrived right at the tail end of June – huzzah!! I for real cried while editing these photos out of happiness for this most precious little family unit that I hold so dear. Enjoy!

I don’t typically do newborn photos, but when I do they are inside client’s own home, because I don’t think there’s anything sweeter. For this simple set-up all we needed was Nathan’s prized succulent, a piece of furniture that had been passed down in Sarah’s family for generations and a little touch of window light.

Cathyrn and Brian’s beautiful backyard wedding took place at the lovely Elm Street Studio in Keller. And outside this pretty yellow home in May a wedding so full of personality, family and sweet, sweet love took place. Just as a wedding should.

The altar they wed in front of was made from pieces from both of their families homes– the mantle was Brian’s great great grandparent’s and the posts are from Cathyrn’s parent’s home.

The bridesmaid’s hairpins were handmade by Cathyrn from small pieces of lace from her own wedding dress, and Cathyrn’s hairpiece was designed using pieces of lace from both her own and her mother’s wedding dress.

The light fixture over the dance floor in their clear-top reception tent was from the bride’s grandfather’s train depot.

Together Cathyrn and Brian made the life-sized yard games that made their outdoor reception all the more festive.

There was so much love in this wedding, y’all. I can’t even handle it. Enjoy a small peek into their day.

This wedding day was a bit different for me because James wasn’t shooting with me for the first time in YEARS! He found out months before that he was accepted into a prestigious painting competition that was in Houston the evening of Cathyrn and Brian’s wedding day, so I brought in my super-talented photographer friend Chris to help me out on this Saturday. I could not have asked for a better fill-in while James was away and I’m so thankful for all the beautiful images he produced, including this one below.
