A Stunning Woodland Wedding, Magnolia TX
The first time I met Vi was during a Facetime meeting. At that time we were still livin’ it up in the 5th Wheel, and I distinctly remember having to tell our children to be quiet so I wouldn’t get interrupted (no worries they did! Haha!). Despite all of that, we hit it off and I was so excited to be her Wedding Photographer!
We began making plans, including their Engagement Session. Vi & Jason live in Dallas, but were planning their Wedding in Houston for the convenience of their family who lives there.
For their Engagement Session however, we decided to plan it close to them!
They really wanted to do their session at the Japanese Botanical Gardens and we couldn’t wait!
This is where we met Jason for the first time. And y’all, it was clear from moment one that this boy was SMITTEN by his sweet Bride to be! The nuzzle was strong with this one!
After their Engagement Session we all went to dinner, and we had so much fun getting to know them even more and just knew we were going to have a blast at their Wedding.
Their Wedding Day finally arrived and when we got to The Springs South Hall we were in awe of their gorgeous grounds!
Vi was a perfect RDP Bride and had her bag of details all ready for me…y’all from her amazing Invitation Suite (from Shutterfly!) that included Wax Seals/Stamp, to her stunning Jewelry and Florals I was in Photographer heaven!
Getting to photograph the details of the day is always a favorite. It sets the tone for the the color story of your day, and allows me to really get a feel for what you hoped to portray.
When it came time for the Ceremony, the look on Vi’s dad’s face as he walked his baby girl down the aisle…you could see how proud he was of her. How much he adored her and how happy he was to be giving her away to such an incredibly loving man like Jason.
Jason & Vi shared personal vows and as is typical, we shed a tear or two. Sometimes the Ceremony is just beautiful and we love Weddings so it makes us tear up. But most of the time…it’s not just that it’s beautiful, but we feel like we’ve begun to get to know the couple. WE feel invested in their Marriage as well, and we feel the weight and beauty of the journey they are about to encounter. The words they shared were so honoring of each other.
Vi & Jason, I hope you continuously remember your vows throughout your life together. When times get hard (because they will! Marriage is tough!), think over those words. When times are easy, still, remember those words. Let them wash over you, to put aside all other distractions so that you can always be reminded of the Great Love Story that you are living.
We were honored to witness these moments, and wish you many more epic moments in life!
