Our last wedding of the year was seriously gorgeous. The Brooks at Weatherford is a wedding we’ve been wanting to photograph since it opened, and we were not let down! Kristyn’s vendor team did a really amazing job bringing Christmas touches into the wedding decor without being over-the-top… but we weren’t surprised by that. Lucy & Darla are always incredible to work with!
Kristyn & Ryan were both so kind and generous and genuinely HAPPY throughout all the time we spent with them. Weddings can be so stressful, but if there was any of that going on, I didn’t see it. I saw a man & woman sincerely thrilled to be officially starting their Happily Ever After, and thrilled to pieces to see the friends & family surrounding them. All in all, it was a perfect way to end our 2015!
**Edited to add… This blog was supposed to go live at 6 a.m., but technology isn’t always as helpful as it should be. Luckily, we’re confident that Kristyn & Ryan and everyone else that checks this out will think the gorgeousness was totally worth the wait. 🙂
Here’s a not-so-small collection of our favorite images!
Isn’t this chapel delicious? With REALLY well done clear plastic covers for the open sides, it’s pretty perfect to be able to have an “outside” ceremony no matter the weather!
Mr. & Mrs. Starnes!!!
It’s a heartbreaking reality at just about every wedding we photograph… there’s always someone, or multiple someones, that you wish with all your heart could be there celebration with you. For the Starnes family, that meant missing Ryan’s mother, but also knowing that she had the best seat in the house to watch the whole day unfold.
The reception space at the Brooks is stunning… and stockings on the mantle? Squeal-worthy adorable.
I just have to say it… Kristyn, you brought the gun show to your wedding. #MichelleObamaArms
DJ Jason Esquire Barnes kept the place hopping all night. His beat-mixing and uplighting, along with the fact that he’s an absolute blast, makes him one of our favorite DJs to work with. When we see his name on a vendor list, we always breathe a sigh of relief and know our dance party is going to be a fun one!
Kristyn & Ryan, congratulations. Thank you for letting us be a part of your family during this process, and for trusting us to preserve this day for you. You are sincerely wonderful people, and we know the Forever you have in front of you is going to be a beautiful one!
