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.
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!
Randa and Dustin Medows were wed inside the Book Nook Inn; a modest and charming bed and breakfast in Lumberton, Texas. The couple chose Skys the Limit Production to video their special day on December 29, 2018.
Randa wore red high heels and a long white dress that brushed the ground. Her outfit was personalized with a black leather jacket as well as a red glittered “Medows” placed on the back. Dustin wore a simple white shirt with the sleeves rolled up. This was accompanied by black suspenders and a red plaid tie. The couple decided to throw out tradition and have a first look before the wedding outside by the lake. Dustin’s face said it all when he turned and saw Randa; he couldn’t wait to make her his wife.
The ceremony was special in every way especially since Randa’s grandfather married the two. Everyone smiled when Randa’s grandfather shared his favorite story of the bride and her BB gun. In the couple’s own words, they shared their vows to one another. The ceremony ended with a simple first kiss with an approved grandpa saying “there ya go!”
The ceremony room was transformed into the reception room. It was a festive wedding filled with holiday plaid decorations and desserts (of course!) All watched and applauded the newlyweds as they made their grand entrance; Randa lifted her bouquet of ornaments as the cheers continued! Because of the colder December weather, the couple made sure guests were kept warm with smores and blankets. Later in the evening, after the groom tossed the bride’s garter, the single men were puzzled. The winner of the garter toss seemed to convince all the second-placers the garter disappeared before revealing the champion. The men laughed and everyone joined the floor to dance.
In 2014, Dustin and Randa met at a Fuzzy’s Taco Shop. Later, again in Fuzzy’s, Dustin asked Randa to marry him. Can you guess what caterer the lovely couple chose for their wedding day?
Another successful year at the Bozeman’s Christmas Tree Farm! The air was cool and crisp. The Lumberton skies overcast like a smooth grey sheet stretching over the earth; making the vibrant green of the trees stand out. There’s nothing like a photo shoot on a Winter’s day to get you into the Christmas spirit. It’s the perfect gift for family and friends. Everyone enjoyed the sweet treats from Kittie’s Kookies. Personalized ornaments are on the way from Down Our Crafting Hole! Skys the Limit Production would like to thank you all for letting us be a part of your holidays.
