When I met Catherine and Collin a few months ago I instantly knew they were an Allison Jeffers couple. They finished each other’s sentences and trusted me completely! And when they told me their wedding vision I am pretty sure I had to pick my jaw up off the floor. They were doing something that has never been done at The Lodge at Country Inn Cottages, and I couldn’t wait to see it come to life!
When their wedding day finally came, I walked into The Lodge and couldn’t believe my eyes. They transformed the reception space into a chapel! Sheer curtains were hung to create faux walls and church pews were rented to create a beautiful church feel. Ashley & Co. did a PHENOMENAL job of designing this space, and when the ceremony was over they worked like clockwork to flip it into a reception space.
My absolute favorite moments of this day(it’s really hard to choose, but I will!):
Another thing that stood out to me about Catherine and Collin’s day was the AMAZING WEATHER! I’m not sure how they managed to get so lucky, but the high was only 90 degrees! At the end of a triple-digit week, that’s saying something! Honestly, it didn’t even feel 90 degrees. I’m not sure if we are just used to being really hot or what, but we all noticed how “cool” it felt. Haha! #Texasproblems
Catherine and Collin, I am so honored you chose me to photograph your best day ever! I have loved getting to know you guys and your fun friends, and I hope you keep admiring each other for the rest of your days <3 Love you guys!
When you’re an Aggie couple, this ring shot is a MUST. These lavender shoes were so beautiful! The pearl necklace belonged to Catherine’s grandmother. She, Catherine’s mother, and Catherine all wore the same pearls for their wedding. So special! Fun fact: This was a destination Hill Country wedding! Catherine and Collin (along with most of their friends) live in College Station! Catherine’s reception shoes were SO CUTE! I love the little cactus print and their date embroidered on the heel. Catherine’s first look with her dad was so sweet! Catherine didn’t have the opportunity to have a bridal session before the wedding, so we worked a mini bridal session into the timeline! These girls cracked me up! So cute!
My absolute FAVORITE part of the day!! Look at those smiles! These socks! I would personally be wearing the tacos. HAHA! Can you believe these first few photos were taken in the middle of a parking lot?! I couldn’t let the golden glow from the sun get away, so I used my 85mm lens to blur everything out! And it worked like a charm! I’m a little bit obsessed with these florals by Whim! *insert all the heart eyes here* Check out this ombre cake! One of my favorite shots from the whole night! They’re just the SWEETEST!
