Joshua + Alyssa | Rustic Grace Estate Van Alstyne, TX

Joshua and Alyssa got married at Rustic Grace Estate, which is a charming white chapel in Van Alstyne, TX with a bright red barn. It was such a fun wedding and the sun shone all day long! Skys the Limit Production had the honor of capturing their union with both video and photography.

Bride and Groom Portrait at Rustic Grace Estate

Joshua wore navy suit with a goldish tie. Alyssa wore a long lacy dress that created a train. Every piece of jewelry had a meaning behind the women in Alyssa’s family; besides the rings her groom provided for her of course! They both looked perfect.

Before the ceremony, Joshua’s mother dressed them both in a traditional hanbok. We took photos inside the chapel as well as adding a little bit of their humorous personality. There’s a swing beside the chapel where Alyssa pushed her gleefully groom on the swing.

Getting hitched

The ceremony was an intimate affair in a stunning chapel. During the ceremony They prayed and took communion. It was really beautiful.

They decorated the area with simple floral, which I loved. The reception was in the barn at Rustic Grace Estate – there were so many great opportunities for portraits. Weddings at Rustic Grace Estate are amazing, because the grounds are brilliant.

The party

The couple had a variety of pies in the afternoon, and a DJ playing music in the evening. It was such a sweet moment to witness the parents’ dance. After the mother son dance as well as the daddy daughter dance, the couple had their other parent join them on the dance floor. All three couples danced together. For dinner they had proper wedding grub, and the first dance gave the couple a chance to show off their dance moves. They finished off the evening with a parade of bubble exit.

The bridal suite is located on top of the groom’s suite. Though my couple did not do this, this creates a perfect opportunity to do a “first touch” with the couple at the staircase; bride being at the top and groom being at the bottom.

“Sarah was incredible!!! My husband and I loved having her and her team shooting our wedding. We got married on Thursday and already have wedding teaser photos by Monday! I am in awe at the beauty she was able to capture and cannot wait to see everything else! She was able to move dates for me due to COVID and took every request and met it!”- Alyssa

Blessing and Opekere Omuku| The Aristide in Mckinney, Texas

The Aristide at 6200 TPC Drive had never seen beauty quite like what flooded its frame at 1400 hundred hours on the 16th of August. A moment redefined by the merging of two worlds, as Blessing and Opekere committed themselves to one another before God and family in a ceremony reminiscent of royalty. Skys the Limit Production had the distinct pleasure of capturing their nuptials.

How they met

Blessing’s sister was the first to discover the treasure hidden in the Omuku family, when she found forever with his cousin, Mina. From the first moment she met Ope, she knew that he would be good for her sister and she was correct. It was only fitting that Mina, which means the child that brings two families together, and his wife, Blessings sister provide a means to connected these two lovebirds. Despite any misgivings the two may have had, Blessing and Ope found a rare love in one another; a love that far exceeded their wildest dreams.

There was nothing out of the ordinary about a trip to the aquarium during a visit from Blessing’s family. As they made their way through the aquarium, she couldn’t hide her surprise when she saw her best friend and goddaughter, whom Ope had secretly flown into town, walking towards her. The question in her eyes was quickly answered as Ope took that moment to ask for her hand in front of those dear to her.

Wedding day

Crystal chandeliers glistened as they hung from the vaulted ceilings of the classic wedding chapel, adding a little bit of magic to the space. The wooden pews, which lined the floor, were vacated briefly as Blessing, escorted by her father in, made her way down the aisle to her Ope who awaited her, all the love in his heart spilling from his eyes. The scene was a seamless mesh of traditional ceremonial hues and a rich Nigerian culture.

The future Mrs. Omuku looked royal in her white traditional, strapless, sequined gown, a diamond encrusted headband, and a beautiful diamond necklace. Opekere looked dashing in his classic black tux, with a simple soft pink rose pinned to the front of his jacket.

With a sparkle in his eyes, Blessing’s father passed on the responsibilities of protecting and loving his beautiful gem, his Blessing, onto Ope in a manner that only a loving father could. Tears flowed as Blessing and Ope made clear their promises to one another, opting to speak from a place they’ve learned to trust, their hearts.

The wedding party soon grooved their way into a beautiful ballroom to the melodic tunes of Tiwa Savage’s, All Over, where guests of the ceremony were already seated. Blessing and Ope stole the show as they claimed the dance floor, proving to everyone that they were indeed the “freshest couple; the newest couple; the most beautiful couple.”

Skys the Limit Production would like to offer a very special thank you to the lovely couple.

THE VOWS

The ceremony was an intimate service inside a grand white hall filled with so much light from the windows. During the ceremony the couple had their children join them in for prayer. It was a beautiful way of involving everyone in the ceremony.

They decorated the area with their unity cross and a little touch of plants in vases down the aisle, which I loved. The reception was in the main hall at The SPRINGS Event Venue. I appreciated all the light the venue let in; it was gorgeous for portraits and candids. Weddings at The SPRINGS Event Venue are amazing, because video and photo ops are endless.

This venue is really peaceful and secluded, and one of the loveliest places to get married in Wallisville. The place offers an amazing atmosphere for a wedding – and there is a stunning arbor that’s perfect for photos.

AFTER THE CEREMONY

The couple had an ice cream cart in the afternoon, and cake and champagne in the evening. The party was relaxed and filled with happy children playing throughout the large room. For dinner, they had Texas BBQ with the traditional sides, and the first dance was to Ed Sheeran. They finished off the evening with some couple’s portraits outside the venue.

THE COUPLE

Tori wore a floor-length gown and Jake wore a charcoal suit and tie; they looked really incredible. The flowers from Tori’s bouquet and Jake’s boutonniere added just the right amount of color to make their outfits complete.

These two getting hitched on a Monday, made a great start to my week.

Sara and Bennett Serchen | The Cotton Exchange in Waterford, Wisconsin

It was my very first time visiting Wisconsin and I could not have wished more on my visit; a beautiful wedding, a beautiful day and a beautiful couple! Plus the weather in September actually felt like fall was on its way and I loved it – sorry Texas, but sometimes you’re too hot! Bennett and Sara, thank you for taking me on a journey I didn’t think I needed. I hope nothing, but pure joy, laughter and love with one another throughout the years to come.

Now onto the newly weds big day…

Thirty minutes into the thirteenth hour of the day on September 14, 2019 Sara became Mrs. Bennett Serchen. It was a beautiful space in time anchored by the strength of a love worthy of imitation. Skys the Limit Production had the honor of capturing the start of their journey with video.

High school may have proven to be one of the most important times in the lives of this pair. Sara walked into what seemed to be an ordinary classroom, but quite the opposite was true. This classroom belonged to Bennett and his favorite teacher. On September 25th of 2013, while Bennett sat eating lunch, Sara walked in sparking a friendship that would shape the rest of their lives. The duo began dating just three years later, nearly to the date.

September is an incredibly special month for Bennett and Sara. It marks the start of everything they have been and will be to one another. Every year, to honor their beginning, they venture through Holy Hill. The tradition allowed Bennett to catch Sara by complete surprise with a proposal that involved the entire family for a walk that featured the most sacred moments of their relationship until that point.

With a truly beautiful, elegant, catholic ceremony the two entered into forever as one. The stained-glass windows anchored perfectly into the walls of the massive chapel couldn’t compare to the awesome light illuminating from the crowd gathered to bear witness. Joy floated around the room, coloring each face with a tailored hope for the couple. 

Sara was flawless in her white lace, floral gown; accented with a simple gold sequined belt at her waist. Bennett looked dapper in a classic tux with a bow tie, and a soft yellow and burgundy boutonniere.

The occasion was sprinkled with live music and the timeless utterings, promising spiritual renewal and unconditional love. Not long after the ceremony concluded, the two dashed to their black dodge chariot, playfully running circles around it, Bennett in some vintage black and white converses and Sara in her own classic white high-tops, before heading to the reception. The happy couple snuck in a stop at beautiful park where people fish frequently, and then at Uncle Harry’s Frozen Custard & Ice Cream to share a kiss in front of a large wall-size chalkboard congratulating them on their union. 

Eventually they joined the rest of the party, away from the arches of the church, at a stylish venue crafted with activities for the whole family to enjoy. Live music flooded the stylish room. Not only did guests fill the huge dance floor, but some serenaded the crowd with karaoke, while others opted to exercise their mental aptitude with a giant Jenga game. There is little doubt that a great time was had by all. 

Skys the Limit Productions would like to offer a special thank you to the beautiful couple. Best wishes!
