A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Emily and Caleb's gorgeous wedding at Saint Andrews United Methodist Church in Plano. The church coordinator Nancy Drew was so easy to work with and they have a gorgeous sanctuary. The reception was at Bent Tree Country Club with a ton of amazing vendors. The Cake Guys did the cakes and Cindy Davis Design Group did the amazing flowers.
I'll start with the bling. Emily and Caleb met and got engaged at Texas A&M and since they just graduated, I included their college rings too.
Emily's dress, shoes and garter.
His and hers :)
A few of them getting ready in the mirrors.
I love this shot when she's putting on her pearls. She's so happy and is shows.
Getting into her dress.
I was a little worried about keeping myself out of the photos since the room was basically all mirrors but oh how I love the infinity look. I remember as a kid when I would look in the mirror in the restroom at church how I could see myself over and over and over...pretty amazing.
Dad sees his daughter all dressed up.
What a beautiful mother and daughter.
A few photos of Emily alone.
and some of Caleb.
The church outside and inside. That stained glass is spectacular.
Ceremony time! Kent walked his granddaughter down the aisle, she wasn't exactly sure about it at the beginning but by the end of the walk she was all good, dropping blue petals all the way.
Caleb sees his bride for the first time as she enters the sanctuary.
The sanctuary has a lot of light on the altar and the rest of the room is about four stops darker so the lighting is quite dramatic and shows off that stained glass window.
The wedding party in the little outdoor area at the church. It was super hot but they were all troopers and had fun with the photos.
The handsome guys.
The lovely ladies.
Some alone time.
Emily and Caleb had a private dinner before the reception while everyone else was at the cocktail hour.
Then they made their grand entrance.
Had a gorgeous first dance with their wedding party standing behind them.
I love the way Emily's dad just cherishes his daughter, you can see it in the way he looks at her.
Cale was nice and just put a dot of icing on Emily's nose...Emily really let Caleb have it :)
Then we went outside just before sunset for a few romantic photos.
I love this series!
Finally the sun was low enough to get that orange glow.
and a silhouette.
Back to the party...parents dancing.
Friends having a great time.
The best bouquet and garter toss I've seen in a while. I really hope all these girls are single and that they all want me as their wedding photographer later...they were awesome going for the bouquet!
The guys too...usually I see the guys standing with their hands in their pockets and letting the garter fall on the floor. Not this fun group. I want to see them all again and again!
Emily and Caleb had a private last dance...well except for me and the DJ and it was really perfect. The candles were still glowing on all the tables and the subtle blue uplighting was really the only light in the room. It was super romantic.
and a twirl to end their night...love it.
Finally they left to a shower of confetti. Look at that little man in front of them :) He's so excited it makes me smile.
When they got to their car...surprise! their groomsmen had hidden inside and threw more confetti at them as they opened the door. So much fun!
Alone in the car and happy.
Congratulations Emily and Caleb. Your wedding was amazing and I wish you a lifetime of happiness.
