Laura Burlton with D. Jones Photography in Houston sent us two really fabulous weddings that she shot, and it was such a toss-up which one to start with! Their styles are so different. Their locations are so different. But they both stand testament to the fact that with love ~ laughter ~ friends & family ~ and a great photographer, your wedding day will be nothing short of fantastic!

Katie & Blake’s wedding was held at the Safari Texas Ranch in Sugar Land, Texas. The facility has many different venues to choose from and they chose the rustic simplicity of the lodge there. It had a great big veranda out back that they held the ceremony on and then the reception was inside the lodge afterwards. The grounds of the Safari Ranch have some livestock and exotic animals on site. There were goats and deer and I have heard there is a giraffe, although we did not see it. The most visible were the peacocks running free along the grounds. They provided much comic relief during the ceremony with their mating calls!

Katie’s invitations and wedding paper pieces were designed by her very talented sister, Courtney Albright.

{ps… if you look on the map, the actual venue looks like it’s in Sugar Land, but the physical address is Richmond. Sorry about that!}
