Jennifer + Robbie's Wedding

Jennifer and Robbie chose to celebrate their wedding day at the gorgeous House Plantation, located off 290 just past Cypress. It was a warm and sunny evening filled with pretty pink and white florals, a glowing bride, happy groom... and two beautiful little girls waiting for Jennifer to officially become their stepmom.

The bride and her attendants, friends, and relatives were tucked away in the well-appointed Bride's room upstairs doing hair and makeup as A Day To Remember carefully arranged flowers and got the cake set up downstairs. The ceremony was to take place on House Plantation's storybook-wedding arbor-altar, which was decorated with lots of flowing greenery and a zillion little glass votives strung above from wires for a cozy romantic mood. The backdrop of blooming crepe myrtles was perfect!

It was very touching to hear Jennifer recite vows to Robbie's daughters. Being a stepmom myself, it brought a tear to my eye hearing another woman say those sweet words to the girls, opening her heart and promising to be the best parent she could be in their lives... not trying to replace their mother, but raise them respectfully as a wife to their father. You could tell that the girls were thrilled to be such an important part of the festivities, and Robbie looked on with adoration for his new wife.

After the ceremony the dinner and dancing began! The sun set, and the large trees on the property were lit with white lights-- which made for lots of stunning depth and allowed me to beautifully light the dance floor shots : )

You can tell that this was one great party, a fabulous celebration of love. Congratulations, Jennifer and Robbie!

Heather and the baby on the way...

I joined Heather in her home for some comfy, artsy maternity portraits. It isn't a concept I've tried before, but I'm super-happy with the outcome. The fabric adds a timeless touch to the images, and Heather is just beautiful and naturally glowing... those eyes! I can't wait for the little one to arrive, so we can take tiny-baby-pics : )

Michelle's Bridals!

Michelle and Kyle were married this weekend in Bryan, so I can finally post her bridals for all to see, HOORAY!

We started at the Magnolia Hotel downtown, then pranced around for a few blocks just seeing what we could see. We did a few pics in the courtyard at the Christ Church Cathedral, then kind of got some city-background stuff. Michelle had several displayed at the wedding, it was great to walk in and see them all.

Congratulations, Mr. and Mrs. Lindsey : )
