These high school sweethearts finally became Mr. & Mrs. Graham on Saturday June 8th! Aaron and Ashley said “I do!” at St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Church. They made their getaway in the cutest yellow Plymouth to celebrate at their reception at Benton’s! It was an honor to be able to photograph one of the sweetest couples I’ve met!
Megan and Brandon's wedding was my last one of the summer and I am so thankful I got to be a part of it. I am always honored when someone asks me to document their day, but I felt more so because I've known Megan for years. Seeing her with Brandon and the way she laughs with him puts a huge smile on my face!
Their wedding was on a beautiful, hot evening at The Laurels in Beaumont. Megan kept a journal during their wedding month and gave it to Brandon as a gift. I thought that was such an awesome and thoughtful gift since they'll be able to look back through it years from now. I also love how she wore her white Nikes! She's a nurse and her shoes were perfect! Speaking of perfect... how gorgeous are her bridesmaids in their custom gold sequin gowns made by House of Paige Ashley? Even though it was crazy hot, they rocked it. ;)
During the ceremony, I don't think there was a dry eye. As soon as Brandon saw his bride, his face said it all. They were meant to be. There were also plenty of laughs, but when it came time for the vows... oh man. Cue the waterworks.
Megan said, "As we leave here today and move forward in life together, I vow to love and honor you as my husband and soulmate, I vow to continue my journey as both student and mentor in the prosperity of our marriage and our relationship with God; I vow to not ask so many questions, especially when I already know the answer; I vow to love you faithfully even through the most difficult times; I vow to grow with you, pray with you, and dream with you; I vow to be your protector, your advisor, and your greatest confidant."

Following their ceremony, we headed to the IBEW Hall in Beaumont where there was non-stop dancing! Their DJ, James Martin, know how to keep the crowd out on the dance floor. Another thing I noticed was that Brandon could dance. That boy has got some moves! At one point he got both of their mom's to do a hula hoop contest! Couldn't tell ya who won. ;) I think it's safe to say that everyone had a blast dancing the night away. They ended with a glow stick exit!
Megan and Brandon, thank you for including me on your special day. Best wishes on your new journey as husband and wife! XOXO
