I know what you’re thinking–“This is a styled shoot!” And while it’s beautiful and inspirational, it is 100% a real wedding and I can’t believe I took so long to blog it! I’m VERY behind on the blogging game as most of y’all are aware, but I’m easing back into it and thought Kristina and Sean’s gorgeous fun wedding would be a great place to start. They’re also an incredibly sweet couple with an incredibly sweet family, so it was really nice taking a trip down memory lane from this past Spring.
I know you probably think I live at The Chandelier of Gruene by now, and honestly they should probably get me a room there with the amount of weddings we photograph at that venue (haha!), but I’ve never seen the chapel quite like this before. It was truly magical with splashes of bright bright fuchsia and pink tones. Kristina said she planned the whole color scheme around her fuchsia shoes. BTW if you missed her stunning bridal session be sure to check it out here.
Keep scrolling to see my favorite highlights from their day!
Fun fact: it was REALLY windy when I was taking detail photos on the porch and everything kept flying away. It took three of us to hold things down and then count down 1,2,3 so I could take a quick photo. I wish we had a photo of that HAHA! Kristina and Sean decided to do a first look and share private vows before the wedding.
The Alpacas were the true stars of the show, and Kristina was fine with it. LOL.
They also added a white dance floor and it brought the whole design together beautifully. Highly recommend!
Late night snack from P. Terry’s as well as an ice cream bar!
And, of course, we did night portraits! This swing at The Chandelier of Gruene was MADE for them.
