I don’t even know where to start with Jordan and Mark! They’re sweet, they’re fun, and they look so good in love! Seriously, I have never teared up so much while editing wedding photos as I did for this one. It was such a beautiful day at Eagle Dancer Ranch and so full of love and joy.
If you live in Central Texas you know what spastic weather we have been having! Just a few days before this, a hurricane hit Texas and then dissipated. And a few days after their wedding a cold front blew in and brought rain with it. They got SO lucky with the absolutely perfect weather for their day. It was sunny and 75 degrees!
My top three moments from their wedding:
1. Jordan’s first look with her dad. He had her mom’s diamond from her engagement ring turned into a necklace, and we all cried.
2. Jordan and Mark’s reaction as she came down the aisle. It was SO sweet, and we cried. Again!
3. Lauren, Jordan’s bridesmaid, giving her husband’s speech. He is Mark’s best friend, but he’s deployed and couldn’t make it to the wedding. And you guessed it; so many tears in that barn.
They also had an epic dance party! Jordan called it “Club Lewis” and my face hurt from laughing all night (if you saw my instagram stories, you know exactly what I’m talking about!) and since they had shuttle buses, two grand exits were in order–bubbles and sparklers (this was a first for me).
All-in-all, this day couldn’t have been more perfect, and I am SO honored they chose me to photograph their #bestdayEVER
The bridal suite at Eagle Dancer Ranch is, literally, EVERYTHING! I absolutely loved her first look with her girls! Mark’s parents are two of the sweetest people I think I’ve ever met. They are SO cute together, too. Eagle Dancer Ranch has gone through some changes in the past year! It used to be a smaller open-air barn, but now it’s bigger and better than ever(it still can be open-air–which was perfect for this day!). Just wait until you see the grand chandelier. Get your heart eyes ready! Jordan’s bridesmaids wore dresses in different shades of burgundy/pink which had an ombre affect! I’ve never seen a more beautiful crier. This was also a first for me! After the processional I had the wedding party, family, and couple stand in the aisle for this epic group portrait while I was standing on a ladder! Stay tuned for their night portraits in this spot 😍 Mark and Jordan’s wedding party made their entrance with awesome dance moves. These are some of my favorite first dance photos! The chandelier + the lights behind them are perfect. I believe he called this this “inchworm”
exit #1 When the bride requests a photo with ME! 😩 Exit #2! I’m so in love with these!! Which do you like better? #1 or #2??
