Wedding reception

I had the honor of assisting with a wedding reception this last month.  It was at Pecan Grove Plantation Country Club in Richmond, Texas.  Here are a small handful of the many great shots of the day.

They did Nothing Bundt Cakes for their wedding cake.  This was a great idea and all their guests enjoyed them.  Not only were they individually wrapped & delicious, but left over cakes (perfectly boxed) made their way home with guests too.  It was a brilliant idea!

We decided on a rural type landscape down in Pearland on their family’s property.  We also tried to recreate the park setting that Juan used to pop the question.  Good job Juan!

Time for an outfit change and lets bring in the horse!  🙂  You can’t tell, but the horse was being a little rambunctious… i had to Photoshop Lupe closer… She was a few more feet to the left in the next photo.

Drizanne and Jimmy engagement photos

Drizanne and Jimmy met at the University of Houston.  Drizanne loves animals and Jimmy loves bicycling & cars.  He especially loves his awesome red Mini Cooper S.

The morning we decided to take photos, it was very very cold.  Not Chicago cold, but Chilly November Houston cold.  Drizanne gets points for faking being warm with her non-winter dress.

The chapel looks quaint from the outside, but the inside is pretty amazing…

There is also a lot of natural light in the reception hall…

The wedding itself, was beautiful!  The bride and groom seemed to glide through the day without even noticing the camera. And the family and friends where so wonderful it was often hard to tell who was who.
