Victoria and Samuel Blaze | Book Nook Inn Bed and Breakfast in Lumberton, TX

On May 25th Victoria and Samuel exchanged their promise of love to one another at the Book Nook Inn in Lumberton, Texas. I was thrilled when they chose Skys the Limit Production to photograph their wedding day.

Wedding ceremony at the Book Nook Inn Bed and Breakfast in Lumberton, TX

Before we get into the classy wine-colored wedding, let’s rewind just for a moment to the day Sam proposed. He had the whole night planned; both his and Victoria’s family were at one of their favorite steakhouses, and of course the families knew why they were there. After everyone sat down for dinner in the “party room” together, Sam told a little white lie to Victoria and said he had to go “grab his camera” out of the car. In that time, Rachel, the maid of honor was hiding out in the car with one of Sam’s friends. He brought the pair with him inside the restaurant with the ring safely in his pocket. Sam prepared some music and a Skype call, so Victoria’s other maid of honor could be there for the moment as well. After doing all of this planning and even writing a whole note of everything he wanted to say, he became nervous with the amount of people in the room. He started speaking a few things from his heart then popped the famous question. In Sam’s own words he said “She said YES right away, because she has been waiting for a while for this to happen lol”.

Taking photos of everyone getting ready for the big day was a breeze since the venue had the bride and groom’s room on top of one another. We even took the time to snap a photo of the couple together while still holding onto the tradition of the groom waiting to see his bride! Sam wore a dark suit with a wine colored tie and white shirt. Victoria’s dress had laced see-through sleeves and her modest train brushed the ground while she walked.

Before the ceremony, my team, the bridesmaids, and Victoria cried out in laughter while trying to position Victoria in a sexy head-turning pose for “Sam’s” photos. All jokes aside, the images turned out pretty good!

The ceremony was held outside of the Book Nook Inn next to the venue’s pond. Everything was beautiful; the bridesmaids wore wine colored dresses while the groomsmen wore matching tie and vests, and the unity candles were set up on the small dock on the water. During lighting of the candle, Victoria surprised Sam with a special pocket watch. After exchanging rings and vows, let’s just say the smitten couple gave me more than enough time to photograph their first kiss.

Everyone gathered inside for the reception and cheered as the wedding party danced through the building. The couple showed off their love of the DC Universe by adding a golden Wonder Woman and Superman symbol hidden on the back of the bridal cake.

The sweetest speeches were given; even I couldn’t help but get a little choked up when one of the maid of honors mentioned passing her title as the “best” friend of the bride to the groom. My favorite part of the reception was the big group photo of all the guests; it’s always such a unique wedding photo because you can reflect and be reminded who all attended.

The night ended with a precious private dance for the couple and romantic flying paper lanterns into the sky. If you are looking for a photographer yourself, get in touch!

Sandra and Jim Sackett | La Cour Venue in McKinney, TX

It was Friday, May 10th was full of drizzle across North Texas, Jim and Sandra had planned on an outside ceremony, so they decided to be wed inside the La Cour, which is an elegant and cozy brick venue in McKinney. Photo by photo, Skys the Limit Production documented the newlywed’s big day.

The ceremony was filled with smiles and beautiful moments; it was a charming burgundy and ivory wedding. The reception was held in the same room and there was an abundance of the couple’s favorite sweets for all to enjoy! As the night went on, the live band took guests back to the 1960s with songs like ……. Guests enjoyed tortillas with smokey fajita meat, and the bartender kept drinks flowing through the night. I could see why Mr. & Mrs. Sackett invited each of their wedding guests as I got to meet each person while taking their photos; they were a kind, light-hearted, and humorous group.

I loved this relaxing, beautiful wedding! If you’re getting married and looking for a McKinney wedding photographer, get in touch! Here are some of the photos from Sandra and Jim’s wedding day.

Nicole and Nate Wood| Private Residence in Double Oak, TX

Nicole and Nate were wed outside in the back of a private residence in Double Oak, Texas May 4, 2019. It was an intimate and glamorous wedding full of good food, friends and fancy dance moves. I had the privilege of taking photos of the special occasion.

Nicole and her girls got ready at a different location, a friend’s house, and there was such an exciting vibe. All the girls in the wedding party wore matching robes with their names across their backs. Later Nicole wore her blush colored wedding dress, and looked so incredible. After her mother helped her button up her dress, Nicole’s mother presented her with a special gift; her grandmother’s ring.

Nate got ready at the ceremony location in Flower Mound with his boys. He wore a grey suit with a dark navy blue tie, and looked really dapper.

The ceremony was held in the backyard of the beautiful home next to a gorgeous swimming pool and garden. The ceremony area was simple, natural, and beautiful underneath the bright sunny skies. The ceremony was full of smiles, giggles and excited hand squeezes.

After the ceremony, we stayed at the ceremony area for portrait photos, which is such a great time for the newly married couple to have some time to let it sink in. Then the couple mingled with their guests, which was the perfect time for me to get candid photos. I got some really fun guest photos as everyone was so much fun and loved having their photo taken – especially after a few gins! The weather was all sunshine and blue skies, it was a beautiful day.

Nicole and Nate chose to have their wedding reception underneath a rental tent outside to fit all their guests and keep the atmosphere fun and relaxed. The couple had music and cocktails for their guests, and everyone had so much fun taking turns with the photo camper!

The newly weds had heartfelt and occasionally hilarious speeches after dinner made by the best man and maid of honor; the father of the bride shared a word or two as well. The cake was so good the couple decided to let each other try the cake with their nose, chin and forehead as well!

Guests young and mature danced and sang all night long – it was a night to remember for sure! One of the guests even insisted on taking a photo of me – that was definitely a first for me! I would say Nicole and Nate’s glamorous backyard wedding was a success and I’m so honored to have captured their special day.
