Preston & Erin - Wedding - Denton, TX

I had the honor of photographing my cousin-in-law's wedding last month. Kelley and I went down a few days early to spend some time with family in Dallas and we had a good time exploring Denton. 

The wedding was such a fun time! It had, by far, the most Star Wars references I've experienced at a wedding (and it was awesome).  The ceremony was at Denton Bible Church's beautiful chapel. After the ceremony we headed over to Texas Women's University for the reception. I loved the hall thanks to the abundance of windows and natural light. A rare find in reception halls! 

One of the most touching moments of the day was right before the cake cutting when Preston and Erin brought out a special cake for Preston's father, Kyle. Kyle had what they call the "widow-maker's heart attack" not long before the wedding. Not many survive. Thankfully Kyle was not only in front of a hospital when it occurred, but in front of a hospital that could handle this type of heart attack. It was a miracle he could make it to his son's wedding (and it was on his birthday, no less!).

It was such a joy to see Preston and Erin join together as became husband and wife. They are so fun to be around and they are perfect for each other. Here's a snapshot of the day:

John & Emily - Wedding - Athens, OH

In the middle of December, John and Emily got married. Their wedding was full of Athens charm; they said their marriage vows in Galbreath Chapel right on College Green and encouraged their guests to take a short walk down Court Street (complete with holiday lights and evergreen wreaths) before arriving at Central Venue, their reception location.

Despite the picturesque setting of this wedding, the bride and groom’s genuine joy was the best (and most effortless!) aspect to capture. John and Emily’s happiness was so evident, I could hardly put my camera down! It was clear they were truly celebrating being able to become husband and wife.

Here's only a few of the many pictures from the day:
