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.
