Gouge Wedding -- Diamond H3 Ranch

Stefani and Slade got married last September and, yes, it has taken me that long to blog about their wedding day.  Adulting is rough, you guys.  However, the show must go on!  I can't wait to share this beautiful wedding with you all!  Stefani planned her wedding to be country chic.  Everything was classic and clean.  White tablecloths with sunflower centerpieces made the reception hall bright and cheerful.  Mason jars with baby's breath flowers lined the aisle to the outdoor alter that overlooked one of the most breathtaking views of the Texas countryside.  Stefani's bridesmaids wore a bird's egg blue dresses in a high-low style to showcase their cowboy boots.  One of my very favorite details of their wedding was Slade's groom's cake.  The baker did an incredible rendition of a fish jumping out of the water.  It was jaw dropping!  

Stefani and Slade's wedding day went by smoothly and by the end of the evening they were ready for their get away so their guests lit sparklers and lined a path to their car.  They stopped once, right in the middle of their exit, for a dramatic kiss that made everyone swoon!  Then they were off!  Man and wife!  Congratulations, you two!

Stefani's Bridals -- Diamond H3 Ranch

What happens when you have bridals and a wedding in the fall and then get REALLY busy?  Well, you blog the sessions in January.  Yea, it is three months later but the photos are just as beautiful and must be shared!

Stefani and Slade were set to marry at the gorgeous Diamond H3 Ranch in Weatherford, TX so I reached out to the owner about taking her bridals there as well.  The owner, who is so kind and accommodating, immediately responded and we set a date for Stefani's bridal session which was no additional cost to be at the venue.  I was so impressed with Diamond H3 Ranch already but when I arrived at the location my mind was blown!!!  The building itself is incredible.  Rustic meets elegant.  Just as I thought the venue couldn't get any better, I stepped out back and took in the view.  WOW!  I was giddy!!

Stefani's dress was purchased for Ava's Bridal and was almost as stunning as Stefani.  The beading and lace were phenomenal.  We took her train down and let it spill down the gorgeous staircase for a few shots and I knew magic was happening inside my camera.  Her bouquet was simple and elegant.  The big sunflowers provided the perfect color pop.  I love Stefani and her very laid back personality.  We had so much fun exploring the venue for all the best spots for her photos.  Thank goodness her incredible mom was with us as she helped make sure Stefani's dress fell perfectly for each photo.  She found a few great spots for photos, too!

It was an incredible session.  One of my all time favorites and I think it shows.  Enjoy!
