Happy wedding season! Are you as excited as I am?? This is my first of two summer weddings. This one was down in Galveston on a crazy rainy Sunday.
So, the day couldn’t make up its mind if it wanted to be sunny or rainy. Fortunately for all of us, the sun made an appearance every now and then just long enough to get a few perfect shots. Stained glass, rainbow sun flare, and heels. Yes to all of those things! These are the kinds of shots I go try to get while the bridal party is getting ready, because you only need so many pictures of you getting your makeup put on, right? I usually have to go hunting around for some color and sun–love how this one turned out. Since I’m a momma and my typical shoot is of kids, of course I snapped lots of the little ones at the wedding. Technically, these are the lovely hands of a flower girl and not the ring bearer, but the flower girls were so stinkin’ cute practicing with the ring box that I had to snap it.
I love the framing of this. Even though beach weddings are my favorite, these are the kinds of details you miss out on when you’re surrounded by sand and sea. This chapel is the lovely Grace Episcopal in Galveston. Fair warning, interested brides and photogs, there is no flash photography allowed during the ceremony. You’d better bring your A game.
This little butterfly is a special family keepsake. Don’t you love little details like that?
And here’s the after! If you’ve read this blog at all, you’ll probably recognize this as my favorite shot: the end of the aisle kiss as man and wife.
Now, on to the dancing, food, celebrating, and fun. How do you have a pretty reception? Flowers and candles, I always say.
Sweet bride and groom, I hope you’re enjoying your honeymoon! I’ll have the rest ready soon.
