Ryan Ray has a way with the camera. He honestly takes the kind of pictures that melt a viewers heart and pull them head over heels into each and every photograph and for reasons like that I am deeming myself President of the Ryan Ray Fan Club. One glance at this Texas beauty that’s equal parts classic and ga ga gorgeous and you’ll want to hop on his bandwagon too. Lucky you, I think we still need a Vice President.

From the Bride… Caleb and Ashley’s big day was June 25, 2011 in Dallas, TX. We had our ceremony and reception at Marie Gabrielle because we loved the simple elegance of the gardens and restaurant. Ashley loves flowers and bright colors, so the wedding colors we chose were honeysuckle, lemonade, and tangerine. Ashley’s sister Sara was the maid of honor and she helped with the special touches that made the ceremony unique. She made a banner out of roses with Caleb and Ashley’s intitials, which the ring bearers were supposed to walk down the isle during the ceremony. At the last minute that did not work out, but we were still able to use it at the reception. The florist had the idea to hang wicker balls with flowers cascading out to frame the “altar.” His floral pieces were fluffy, danty, and full of color – nothing short of excellent.

The day of the wedding seemed to fly by, but we tried to take it all in, not wanting to forget the special moments from the day we committed ourselves to each other until death do us part! The vows, worship, and communion gave the ceremony the sacred touch we wanted. We realized pretty quickly that we would not be the people we are today without the friendships of our bridesmaids and groomsmen. By the end of the day, we were able to look at one another and smile with contentment as we both noted, ‘It was all worth it’.
