People often ask me if I grow tired of weddings. I am quick to answer, never. And all I have to do to make them see why weddings will always have my heart is show them a wedding like this one. A wedding focused on family and the belief in marriage. A wedding that is gorgeous, yes, but one that is layered with love. It’s enough to make anyone fall in love with weddings, and with images from Everest Road Photography you can do just that right here.
From Everest Road Photography… One of the things great things about this bride is that she doesn’t meet a stranger. Ali let’s brand new friends know her in a way that makes them feel like they are her people. It’s so unique…and because of that, their wedding had no shortage of guests!Every one of Ali and JR’s wedding guests knew that this couple was HAPPY to be married. I’ve not seen a bride walk down the aisle with such a wide open-mouth smile before Ali’s. They are CRAZY about each other. Surrounded by gorgeous floral design, a fabulous church steeple all on the greens of the Traditions Club, I could almost see actual light coming from her glowing smile that day.
From the Bride… When picturing my wedding, only a few things mattered to me, marrying JR, honoring God, and being with lots of friends and family. We picked the Traditions Club in Bryan because of the rental properties on site. All of our extended family and wedding party stayed on site all weekend. My mom then went above and beyond to make everything special. We wanted people to walk away from the ceremony and reflect the beauty, of our love, of the ceremony and of the decor. Keisha’s Kreations put together a beautiful wooden backdrop with floral accents and mason jars full of flowers on shepherd hooks. I was inspired by the simplicity of other weddings I’d seen on Pinterest and blogs. My mom made reserved signs on pieces of chalkboard slate with chalkboard paint. Instead of printed programs, we opted for framed printed signs that looked like chalk board detailing the members of the wedding ceremony. Many children have played an important role in our lives so we choose to have 7 members of our flower brigade. The girls carried metal tins with petals to drop and the boys carried burlap signs.
For the reception, we wanted people to walk away thinking about what a great time they had. Center pieces were simple, repurposed flowers from the ceremony and bouquets placed on beautiful wooden slabs cut and stained by my wonderful in-laws. Our wedding coordination and all of our printing was handled by Cheryl Bell of Little Root Creative. She made everything wonderful. The cake was incredibly delicious and made by Piece of Cake in Brenham. Our groom’s cake was made by the Traditions Club and was a hot molten cake with hot fudge and bluebell ice cream. This dessert was highly praised.
