This Wedding was incredibly sweet in a different way than most Weddings we shoot.
This Wedding was held at Faith Bible Church, which is our home church. And the Bride has been a part of our lives for a few years now. Rylan has poured into my girls, and loved on them so well over the years and we just adore her.
And because we adore Rylan so much, we know that Patrick has to be someone very special. And witnessing the events of the night, the way they were both spoken about by those there, it was evident that that is truly the case.
Our little church is precious to us. And this Wedding was a BLAST to be a part of! The church was filled with people we know and love, and to watch us all get to celebrate these two as they begin an incredible journey together, was just simply the best!
Their story began as they lead a group of youth at our church. Then blossomed as they ran into each other on the Texas A&M Campus, where Patrick eventually “accidently” told Rylan how he felt about her.
Their first date started with a trip to HEB, a picnic in a park, climbing trees and talking…ending at Barnes and Nobles where they sat enjoying each others company and talking…and talking…and talking…
In a little over a year, they are certain their lives were destined to be intertwined.
The Youth Director at our church, Andy (who also happens to be one of our really good friends) officiated.
This is the second Wedding I have watched him officiate, and I gotta tell you guys, I just LOVE the way he does it.
He talked about how they met, stories of them together, and what they love about each other.
Rylan & Patrick shared personal vows they had written to one another, and exchanged rings.
The Ceremony ended with a kiss and a roar of excitement! They then headed to the back and upstairs to the area we call “The Attic” where the College group meets on Sundays to hide them a way for a minute. We snuck them out the back at that point and were graced by an incredible sunset for their first portraits as husband and wife!!
These two are just so fun, and easy! When you love each other so much that you don’t have a care in the world (y’all it was HOT) holding each other, twirling and laughing…it makes for the most perfect portraits!
We headed inside for the Grand Entrance and Y’ALL! This Wedding Party did NOT disappoint!
After the entrances Rylan and Patrick headed right into their First Dance together. And then the party started!! Our little church building was full of fun and dancing!
And just like that, it was time to send them off!
Rylan & Patrick we were so honored to capture your incredible day! We wish you nothing but blessings for your marriage.
