It’s so wonderful spending the evening before with the happy couple! A few days before the wedding, I remembered that I would know most of the bridesmaids & I couldn’t wait to get to the Ridgewood Country Club. Everyone was so happy & fun to be with that the whole weekend was great! Did I mention that Chelsey & Chris both have amazing parents? They do.
Chelsey & Chris were married at the Truett Theological Seminary Chapel on Baylor’s campus which was beautiful. Besides challenging me with my first ever two weddings in one weekend, they also gave me the privilege of capturing their First Look. After the wedding, I was sitting in one of the back rooms downloading photos onto my computer before I called it a day. Chris’s mom came in to start cleaning up & before I knew it, twenty people were crowding around my computer to look at these photos. I really don’t think there was a dry eye in the room. If you’re struggling with the decision to see each other before the ceremony or not, just look at these photos. I’m sure they’ll change your mind!
Is it just me, or does Chris look like Prince William in this photo?
Such a stunning couple!
The best bridal party photos always come right after the ceremony. It never fails!!

I am so excited to share these photos with you! In my opinion (& I’m not bias or anything…), these photos turned out amazing! That is entirely due to the fact that the wedding was beautiful & the people at it were so fun. And everyone was so in love! It was wonderful.
They met at church growing up, but it wasn’t until Thanksgiving a few years ago that Michael really noticed Julie. He told his friends that by Christmas he was going to be dating her. And he was. Their first date was on Christmas Day, & on their two year anniversary, Michael proposed at church where they had first met. He prepared her favorite dessert which they ate on the porch, & even though Julie was freezing, he wouldn’t let her wear his jacket because the ring was in the pocket.
Julie & Michael have been super fun to work with & I am still upset with them for not introducing themselves to me at Britney & Jon’s wedding in January.
Can you see the resemblance??
I absolutely LOVE all of their dresses. Seriously great styles & color.
The guys being the studs that they are.
Julie & Michael decided to pass notes to each other before the ceremony. Such a precious moment & everybody was so giggly! At least on the girls’ side of the door.
Look at this little man! He was a rather serious baby & I have several photos where he’s furrowing his brow. But it’s so cute! And his little suit!
Their ceremony photos are some of my favorites I’ve ever done. I loved that they weren’t afraid to show how happy they were!
One of Julie’s nieces couldn’t quite make it to the end of the reception!
