Aerial & Carver | Palestine, TX wedding

When I first spoke with Aerial about her wedding and was told the venue was Elmwood Gardens, I was ecstatic! I've only seen pictures and I knew it was just right up my alley. When I arrived it was everything and MORE! It was the perfect day for a fall wedding in East Texas. There were many sweet moments throughout the day, but my favorite was their First Look. Carver turned around and immediately was brought to tears. I'm pretty sure we all melted. After the first look, we took photos of the bridal party and family. The bridesmaids looked gorgeous in their plum and lavender dresses. The colors really popped! Once the group pictures were done, Aerial asked me if it would be ok if we snuck out of the reception later to take a few photos under the chandeliers... ummm OF COURSE! My kind of bride! ;)

7 years ago they became high school sweethearts. On October 16th, they became husband and wife. From the plum colors to the amazing weather, I'd say Aerial & Carver's day couldn't have gone any better. Thank you for having me photograph your wedding and I'm excited to share some of my favorites. It was a beautiful day! XOXO

Aerial's little sister was the best flower girl!

Such a special moment between the groom and bride during their First Look.

Blooper! haha! The bees were everywhere! Carver stayed calm while we were freaking out!

Can't you just feel the LOVE the groom has for his bride? Great shot of Carver by my assistant, Kayleigh.
