**  Warning | Tons of pictures **

There are benefits to having family/friends that have an amazing property in Odessa that is big enough to hold your wedding.  Samantha and Justin got that lucky.

I had already been through this before with Sam & Justin when they were in their best friends (Sara & Jeff) wedding in Key West over the summer.  Sam knew me, knew how I worked and she knew that no matter what was thrown at us, we’d get through it.  Once thing that was extremely important to Samantha were pictures.  Having a first look and then enough time after ceremony, we were able to shoot so many different options and had plenty of time to do it (my photographer heart pitter pattered on that one)

Little did I know, Mother Nature was really going to throw it at us!  Once they got through their first look and getting ready for the ceremony, here came the rain.  Not just a slight drizzle but I downpour.  Cristina from Swanky Soiree Events was watching the radar on her phone, we were watching it and I think everyone else was too.  We had a break about 20 minutes after the ceremony was supposed to start and we went for it.  As Sam was getting ready to walk down the aisle, there was a rainbow and then in the middle of the ceremony, more rain.  They totally went with it, guests had their umbrellas and the show went on!  I love the fact that Sam didn’t care.  She had a small freak out moment before the ceremony but quickly realized that you just need to go with the flow.

Once the rain parted, we were left with an amazing sunset over the lake.  We jumped in the golf cart, headed up to the corner to grab some more shots in the field…so….many….options <3

Congrats Samantha & Justin!  Thank you to everyone that helped make their day perfect!

I told Samantha & Sara that since it rained on both of their wedding days and we got a rainbow, if they referred anyone to me, I couldn’t guarantee the same results.  But hey, I’m 2 for 2 with these guys 😉

I met Dorothy & Jason at the Kapok Special Events Bridal Show back in January and a few months later they booked.  It was nice because they were getting married at Kapok so they could see exactly what they wanted, how the venue would look and we could talk about the wedding.

When they first met each other, they knew it was meant to be.  They went on vacation, Jason was sick but still insisted on going out.  Dinner and then walking around town, they were walking in front of a line of trees lit up when he got down on one knee.  Dorothy thought he was reading the history of the trees since he’s an arborist but was pleasantly surprised when he asked her to marry him.

A classic themed wedding at the Kapok with red and white roses, the girls in red dresses, everything came together perfectly.  The staff at Kapok always make sure everything runs smoothly and Joe fromExpert Productions rocked the dance floor all night!

Congrats you two!!!
