This sweet and intimate wedding was so worshipful and full of joy, and it was an honor to capture each cherished moment. I loved the intentionality throughout the day to make the focus on their marriage, family, and the Lord.
The wedding took place at Magnolia Grace Ranch in Leonard, Texas and I was so impressed by the gorgeous venue! It was very spacious and The getting-ready suites had the most beautiful natural lighting, and the giant windows in the reception space were so stunning! The room felt so big and open, but the cozy candles made it feel intimate at the same time.
Allyssa chose to not only do the first look with her bridesmaids but with her dad and brothers as well! It was very emotional and such a sweet way to cherish her day with family. Aaron & Allyssa decided to not see each other before the ceremony, and they shared a private prayer together instead. Then, just moments before the ceremony began, the wedding party gathered around the bride and groom separately to commit the day to the Lord in prayer. Times like these are so helpful to intentionally slow things down to take in the moment and focus on what the day is all about!
After that, it was ceremony time! Sheltered from the Texas heat under a canopy of trees, Aaron & Allyssa committed their lives to each other before God and their closest friends and family. It was a beautiful ceremony and towards the end, a colorful monarch butterfly landed delicately on Allyssa's veil. Incredible!
The reception was full of heartfelt toasts, group dances, and a wonderful time had by all. At the end of the evening, the bride and groom shared a private last dance while the guests lined up for the sparkler exit. It was a calm and meaningful way to end a glorious day!
