Chelsea and Brady were married this past Friday at The Orchard wedding venue in Azle. This was my first wedding to photograph here and I loved it! This venue has so much to offer including an indoor ceremony space, a large covered patio with a fireplace, a beautiful outdoor space next to a pond, and cabins you can rent for the weekend of your wedding.
Chelsea and Brady have been together since they were very young. Childhood sweethearts and still so in love! I met Chelsea at a bridal show in Fort Worth at the beginning of the year and we just hit it off. I was able to meet Brady at their engagement session and I quickly fell in love with these two as a couple. Brady looks at Chelsea they way every woman wants to be adored by their man.
On the wedding day, we had such gorgeous weather that was so perfect for their outdoor ceremony. Chelsea and Brady chose to not do a first look but Chelsea had one with her dad. Talk about making me tear up! It was such a heartfelt moment and Chelsea surpassed him with a portrait of her in her wedding gown holding a picture of her great-grandpa. Her dad loved the gift. When it was time for the ceremony, Chelsea and her dad got ready to walk down the aisle and she then gave him a handkerchief that was his grandpa’s as well.
As Chelsea was escorted down the aisle, Brady was in awe seeing his bride to be and how gorgeous she looked. The ceremony was so pretty and then when he was finally allowed to kiss her, he lost his balance and almost fell over kissing his bride. After formal photos, it was onto the reception for the big party.
The reception was filled with dancing and some fun and crazy guests. They really all had such a fun time dancing and laughing as everyone showed off their dance moves. The night ended with sparklers and a horse drawn carriage ride to their cabin for the night.
This family has been just so amazing to work with and makes me so blessed to have this as my career. I love capturing these moments and it never gets old!
