These two are the cutest and we seriously had so much fun out at the Chateau Des Fleurs and in Hidden Springs.
This beautiful girl had the surprise of her life February 18 at The Vintage Wedding Show hosted at the Chateau des Fleurs! It was the day after her 18th birthday. Maddie was part of the fashion show and Carrigan was most definitely her Prince. She had NO clue he would propose right there on the runway for all to see. Maddie’s favorite part of the evening was definitely at the end of the fashion show when Carrigan walked down the runway while their song was playing. Maddie was videoing him walking down the runway and suddenly he stopped in front of her chair. I would imagine this princess had the sweetest of dreams that night, that is, if she slept at all.
I absolutely adore this family! Ohh how the odds were against us this day, freezing weather, children not happy and a total of 15 minutes to work with:) But hey we can do that right:) No problem! Well not really, LOL. We worked a little magic in the middle of some snow and brought some fun into what may have been a tad bit of a dreary day! No worries, we got this! Hot chocolate and a nice hot Fire here we come!
Ivan and Amber met in high school. Amber was the new girl and Ivan had been there all his life. He said Amber was different from other girls and he wanted to get to know her. Ivan was just a tad too shy to ask for her number so his friend had to do it for him. Soon after that we started talking, and then than became like the best of friends and went everywhere together. Since that day, Ivan and Amber have been inseparable. They are still best friends and have always have fun everywhere they go. This last summer they decided to do a California road trip. One of their stops was Huntington beach. The sun was setting and Ivan took Amber for a walk on the beach. It was there that he got on one knee and asked her to marry him.
Cathy Jo & Tim are some of the most giving people you will ever have the pleasure of knowing. It was truly my honor to be able to be apart of this beautiful elopement with just a few family members present. Don’t worry Y’all the big Christmas wedding and party she has always dreamed of for 2017 is just around the corner.
Rachel and Marshal started this journey a little different, or is it really? Since Marshal owns and runs Jack City Fitness and and of course our lovely Miss Rachel may have wondered in looking for a job. It didn’t take long before she was hired, working and connecting with the man that wan soon to be her world, her love and the journey of a lifetime.
I first met Riley at Lauren’s wedding, it was pretty clear even that day that Shelly had found a keeper. I first met Shelly on Lauren’s 9th birthday. I knew she was a pretty special young lady when a former Miss Rodeo America managed to clear time out of her day to meet a little girl whom she does not even know for lunch. We have been connected every since that beautiful day and she has been part of our family every since. Shelly has managed to do everything from riding lessons, to rodeo queen lessons, which include (modeling, speech, interviews,horsemanship,photogentics and more) as well as just be an amazing friend and mentor in our lives. and Yes, she was in Lauren’s wedding, but enough about that lets move onto the magical love of two amazing people. I have always prayed for the man to come into her life that would cherish her the way she deserves, to love, honor, cherish and adore her the way she deserves. I even remember those days when she broke up with those young men who did not cherish her and their values didn’t stand the test of time. Then came Riley. The first thing I noticed about him was his gentle hart and the way he adored her, on the first day I met him, it didn’t take long before I knew she better not let this young man go. He really was her Prince. I mean let’s be honest he even does Yoga with her, now it doesn’t get much better than that. I hope you enjoy these images as much as I absolutely loved that i had the honor of telling the magical story and I do mean magical story of there day. It it is one to go down in history, every image tells a story of love, honor and dedication to those that love and adore them both.
