Carla & Ben’s beautiful fall Wedding at The Grand Texana in Hempstead, TX
The first time I met with Carla & Ben I just knew they were an #RDPCouple and that we just HAD to be their Wedding Photographers. I was so excited when they let me know we were the ones they wanted!
They are so fun, love each other well and love those around them fiercely.
You don’t always arrive at a Wedding to find out that not only did one of the brides friends hop on a plane to travel across the world to come to their Wedding, but brought a bottle of Cristal for the Bride and her Maids to share as they get ready!!! **also it’s not every day they give you a bit to drink!! So yea, I’m big time now;) I have officially tasted the sweet nectar that is Cristal.. 😉
The day was perfect. Their ceremony was beautiful. And as the Reception got started and toasts began, I was touched to the point of tears when each person stood up to talk about the love they have for Ben & Carla. There were quotes from Ben’s dad who passed away a few years ago… and Carla’s best friend had to begin her toast facing the other direction because she couldn’t keep the tears of joy away as she talked about how amazing the two of them were separately but how incredible they are together. These are the moments we live for. These are the moments that bring us JOY! Witnessing the way people have an impact on one another…
We had such an amazing time with everyone at this Wedding. These two are truly blessed with amazing people surrounding them.
One of the coolest things Carla had going on this day was her Live Action Artist! She had seen it on Pinterest years ago and had decided then, when she got married she had to have one at her Wedding!! Jennie Lou Art did an incredible job!! The end result is below and we were all captivated by it!!
