Taylor & Kirby : Wedding Pt. 2

If yesterday’s post wasn’t enough for you, we’ll take care of that right now. 🙂

Today, we’re sharing the second half of Taylor & Kirby’s wedding day… their amazingly fun reception at The N at Hard Way Ranch in Bluff Dale. As I said yesterday, this venue has vaulted high on my list of favorites… we’re just itching to work here again!

megBdesigns did a fantastic job planning and designing this event from the ground up, with Woodshed Works Floral and The Wedding Connection in Granbury helping bring her vision to life. Add to that some great tunes from Melody, with Melodies & Memories, and you’ve got a gorgeous party on your hands!

Special thanks once again to our friends Kevin & Nicole at Berg Photography, for covering the cocktail hour while we were shooting portraits, and also grabbing some beautiful detail images for us. You guys are such studs. 🙂

While the wedding party was lining up to be announced, I couldn’t resist grabbing a few more portraits with this awesome truck outside the reception hall. LOVE!

If you’re going to have a barn reception… this is the way to do it. Hammered tin, lots of polished wood, gorgeous florals, chandeliers. YUM.

I just loved that you can see the bride’s adoring parents watching in this next shot…

Checking out the new bling…

I cry at lots of weddings, all the time. Parent dances “get me” pretty frequently. But this mother/son dance just RUINED me. Laura just clearly loves her oldest son so much, and the Dixie Chicks’ “Godspeed” was a perfect dedication to this moment in her little boy’s life.

After the party, but before the honeymoon, we’ve gotta make the marriage official…

GORGEOUS private last dance!

Underwood & Stubbs families, THANK YOU! Thank you for trusting us to help create this gorgeous celebration. Thank you for being friends, and loyal clients. I don’t know what we’d do if there came a year we didn’t have Underwoods to photograph! 🙂

Taylor & Kirby, congratulations. You have chosen the very best way to close out 2012, and oh my goodness, such amazing adventures await you in 2013! We’re so blessed to have been a part of your lives through this exciting time, and we look forward to capturing your other special moments as a growing family. We love you ALL!
