Eagle Lake Park Engagement Session | Alyssa & Vince

January 2nd, 2018

They say you never know when you’ll meet the person of your dreams.  For Alyssa & Vince, it was at a wedding.  He was the best man, she was a bridesmaid and well, the rest is history.  The one thing that I love with my couples, is reading through their “getting to know you” questionnaire.  […]

 

They say you never know when you’ll meet the person of your dreams.  For Alyssa & Vince, it was at a wedding.  He was the best man, she was a bridesmaid and well, the rest is history.  The one thing that I love with my couples, is reading through their “getting to know you” questionnaire.  The stories you hear from them are usually total opposite and without being cliche’, you really do get to know them.  They have so much in common (go Lightning, which as far as I’m concerned, they are my perfect couple lol), sports and anything outdoorsy.  The other thing they have in common and a love for, Barkley, their dog.  So when Alyssa told me that she wanted to make sure he was involved, I can’t deny that!  The Lightning, dogs…it’s like a marriage made in heaven as far as I’m concerned 😉

With their wedding being close to Thanksgiving this year, they wanted to get their engagement session done as quickly as possible so they could get out their save the dates.  We headed to Eagle Park in Clearwater.  We definitely needed some place dog friendly for Barkley and it was perfect.  Once we got their, Alyssa and I both said that we were a little upset that Mother Nature gave us blue skies all day but once we got out over the lake, the skies opened up again so we could get a great sunset.

Can’t wait for their wedding at Bridgepoint Church in November (formerly Mirror Lake Lyceum).  She’s got so many little details that are just going to pull everything together!  It’s going to be a blast!

Odessa Ladybug Farms Wedding | Katelyn & Colby

December 22nd, 2017

They say when you meet your soulmate, you know.  Well when Katelyn was 5, she started telling everyone that Colby was her boyfriend.  Then a few years later, she told her best friend that she was going to marry him.  They started dating in 2008, thanks to Katelyn lol and fast forward 9 years later […]

Ladybug Farms is a fairly new venue in Odessa.  Katelyn took a little bit to choose her venue and when she saw Ladybug Farms, she knew it was the one.  It’s a small farm off the beaten path but yet still close to everything.  Her family and friends helped with the mostly DIY wedding.  Katelyn made sure that all the details were simple but still perfect.

DJ LMo rocked out the reception and had everyone dancing all night long (as you can see from the reception photos lol)  The day ran so smooth other than Colby forgetting his jacket, that has his vows in it but we switched the time line up a bit and by the time their first look rolled around, no one knew the difference.

Congrats you two!!!

Katelyn was already dressed and make up done when we got to Ladybug Farms.  All that was left to do was put her veil on and she was ready for her first looks

Katelyn & Colby decided they wanted to read their vows to each other right after their first look.  Both of them decided that they would be a crying mess during the ceremony, in front of everyone so this was an intimate moment between the two of them

Even after the first look, spending a good 1/2 hour with each other before the ceremony, Colby still had this reaction when he saw Katelyn!
