Bita and Jack are the kind of people who leave you with a full heart. So much tenderness and care between these two.

I am beyond honored that they trusted us to document their McKinney Cotton Mill wedding this summer, and equally as honored to have been able to know them in such a precious season of life. Enjoy a few (/awholebigbunch) of my favorites, beginning at Bita’s parents’ gorgeous home where the ladies got ready.

Winning bridesmaid trait #764: she holds up a magazine while you’re getting into your wedding dress and says, “You look better than Kim Kardashian on her wedding day.”

The stunning showpiece for Bita and Jack’s ceremony was the sofreh, a nod to Bita’s Iranian heritage. The spread was laid out so meticulously by a dear relative of Bita’s.

 My heart is going to explode now from how much I adore these two and their wedding day, so I better go take care of that. Bye.

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.

Daniella and Deke, I wish y’all many years of happy marriage full of contentment in the sunshine and smiles in the rain.

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.

When darling Holly pulled out her ballet pointe shoes towards the end of her bridal session I just about started jumping up and down from excitement.

What an absolute doll, this one.

Enjoy a look into a few of my favorites from her bridal session!
