Alex and Ryan married in late September at Classic Oaks Ranch in Mansfield, TX. It was overcast most of the day, except for a few minutes during their ceremony where the sun peeked out of the clouds and shone down as their officiant spoke over them what the weight of marriage is and the unity they were about to enter into. Isn’t that cool?! I may have teared up a little. These guys have been through a lot together as a couple and their wedding day was solidifying and proclaim
It was Rowdy’s birthday the day we shot this gorgeous wedding at Tuscany Hill, mine being the following day. But, because Andrus had been such a bomb bridesmaid and friend to a previous bride of mine, photographing her wedding was a serious priority. Knowing it was our birthday, Andrus and Alex gifted us a gift card to George Coffee + Provisons ( if you haven’t been to th Coppell coffee shop, GO ASAP ) and wrote us the sweetest card of celebration and thanks.

Upon our arrival on the wedding day I asked Marlena how she was feeling.
The first time I heard of Darian was when Rowdy and I first started dating. He had gone to his cousins high school graduation where a bunch of family members were together. He was listing names of everyone who was there with him when he names Darian, who I though was his uncle or something. WRONGGGG lol. She has been a close family friend for many years, come to find out, but ever since we’ve jokingly referred to her as uncle Darian. Fast forward, Darian meets Justin. Justin
I'm SO PUMPED to finally blog this wedding! It was SO beautiful in so many ways, from the details to the set up, to the weather, oh my gosh. Seriously what dreams are made of. These guys did things their way. And it. Was. Awesome. We were able to sneak away down the street before the ceremony began and hang out with some neighbor's horses for some portraits, which if that wasn't enough to make my wedding day dreams come true, their ceremony and reception was in Nathan's paren
