The first time I met with Holly, I was 9 months pregnant. I wobbled into the starbucks, about to pop & I was actually having contractions the morning of our consultation. Lol! It’s a memory I will never forget!! I enjoyed our consultation so much, but I especially loved hearing how Holly & Darren met. It was the last question I had asked before we went on our way. Holly’s eyes filled with tears as she explained how they had met & how they fell in love. A California girl, moving to Texas to be with the love of her life! Of course, I couldn’t help but tear up as she told me their love story.
We started the week off with a 100% chance of rain. Texas weather changes quickly, us Texans know this! Thankfully- the rain held out until after their wedding day.
We LOVED working with Holly & Darren. Their wedding day was so sweet, filled with the cutest details. Holly decided to do a first look with her mama & daddy and OH MY, it was SO SWEET! I love how close Holly is to her parents. Really warmed my heart to see their relationship captured on camera.
Also, how adorable is Holly’s wedding dress?? She’s my first bride to wear a short dress & I’m obsessed with it! 😀 Take a look at their beautiful country chic wedding, I think you’ll love it as much as I do!
Those boots tho …
Holly wanted to do a first look with her bridesmaids. Holly’s MOH refused to allow Holly to get dressed alone though. I’m happy she did 😉
Ready for her bridesmaids to see her …
Tears! So many happy tears!
I love how their look just came together. Loved their dresses & their boots 😉
Now it was time for Holly’s parents to see their daughter in her wedding dress. Mom was so excited, she couldn’t help but cry!
Their reaction … priceless!
Photos with mom & dad before the ceremony…
Once, Holly went back inside, I brought Darren’s parents outside for family photos too. This is wonderful for my Winter couples. Lots of photos taken before the ceremony.
Loved this moment! Darren brought a step stool out for Holly! Haha!!
Then he stole a kiss!! So adorable. They couldn’t help themselves!
I’m so excited to share their bride & groom portraits! I find this overcast light, so romantic.
Mr. & Mrs. Gaydos!!!
First dance moments
So much dancing y’all 😉
I love when couples incorporate new traditions to a wedding day. The anniversary dance is such a nice way to get everyone on the dance floor & celebrate marriage!
Holly’s parents were the last couple to be on the dance floor. Such a sweet moment.
Decided to bring Holly & Darren outside for night time portraits. I’m so happy I did, because I love these so much!
Good night y’all!
Holly & Darren, we loved working with the two of you. We had such a great time at your wedding day. We wish you a lifetime of happiness, laughter & LOVE!
