Jennifer + Riley!!!!! From start to finish, I have had the BEST time with you two! Jen, your heart glows from the inside out, and I love your laugh, your fun and your joy in life! It’s a bright spot to be when one is around your glowing presence, and I’m so blessed to have gotten to know you! Riley, it’s so clear that you adore your wife. Your every glance, every smile and every moment is so obvious with a love so true and so devoted that it’s inspiring to witness. From engagement session to bridals to this joyous wedding occasion, there has not been a dull moment! 100% beaming, elated emotions are a constant with you two! I’m so glad Rackspace brought y’all together!!!! For those of you reading, just know that the Jennifer + Riley Lavender and Pastels Wedding at The Club at Garden Ridge is one you will WANT to scroll through and see every single image!
Doing a first look before the time change and when the sun still sets a little early is always a recommendation. It gets you to enjoy some of cocktail hour, knocks out ALL images before your ceremony, and allots for those golden hour private, husband and wife portraits that you KNOW are going up on those walls of your new home together as newlyweds! Jennifer + Riley agreed, so we definitely took advantage. I must say, their color palette had me drooling!!!! I loved seeing all those light, spring colors from The Flower Guy who absolutely KILLED IT on florals! They even rented a lounge setup from CRU Rentals and we were able to take advantage of the photographic, elegant setup with the bride + groom! Every aspect of this day from the weather to the details and on to the company we got to hang with was a joy, and I hope to get to continue photographing this happy couple for the years to come! Congrats again, Jen + Riley! YOU DID IT!
