Courtney and Shane had a fun, personal wedding day that was a joy to capture. We started out at Courtney's vacation ranch house where the ladies got ready, and then we all rode a mile in golf carts to a small lake where the first look took place. The portrait session with these two was a breeze- all we had to do was train our cameras on them while they flirted, laughed, kissed, and dipped, all without our direction. I remember at one point Brent and I were cruising through the colorful woods, with the dappled sun and crisp air on our faces, and I was just so especially in love with my job.
After the formals we headed to the church for the beautiful ceremony (check out that purple uplighting on the altar- love it!) But before the ceremony the bride and groom exchanged letters, which you will hear portions of in their highlights here. The reception followed at Centaur Arabian Farms, where we have wanted to film for a long time now. It did not disappoint- the café lights, s'mores bar, fire pit, and beautiful grounds all made for such a cozy atmosphere (which was only enhanced by the deluge of rain.)
Courtney and Shane have lived in exotic locales (she lived in China for a while, they got engaged in Thailand) and now they are settling in College Station to work in college ministry. Many blessings on their new life together!
