Guys. I don’t mean to come across as dramatic (I don’t mean to, it just comes naturally), but there was a literal monsoon the day of Ashley and Ian’s wedding! I’m talking flash flood type of rain, flooding the streets and causing waterfalls from the sides of awnings and gutters. It was the type of rain that makes being outside, even under a cover/umbrella/awning/ANY type of protection… you’re still going to get soaked!

I work with Andrea a lot at the McKinney Flour Mill (she’s just the bestest coordinator around!) and she and I were both looking at each other like, “Oh god no… not a wedding day MONSOON!” and yet, all the while, you know how Ashley and Ian were reacting? “Meh, it’ll be okay.” WHAT?! That’s amazing!! I mean, I think *I* might have been more stressed out about the rain than either of them! THAT right there is a quality I would like to possess: calm, cool, and collected… while being rained on. Haha!

And that patience and unshakable composure totally paid off for them: Near the middle of the reception, the clouds gave way for just enough of that golden sunset light to come through, and with the wet concrete (and Ian’s bad a** car), it made for some serious magic portraits! I found the best spot to use that would take advantage of our skies, but was so forlorn that the entire parking lot was basically a small pond. Did that stop Ashley from getting out there? No! THIS GIRL IS MY DREAM. I even included a behind-the-scenes shot below of Ian wringing out her dress, haha!

Thank you, Ian and Ashley, for choosing me to be a part of your big day! I’m so, so honored that you trusted me and my ideas and were totally on board the whole time! I wish the best for you guys for years to come!

So it’s not often that I have a couple do something I’ve never seen at a wedding before, but Josie and Robert did just that not once, but TWICE. Both of these things are something that I think should totally become a trend at ALL weddings, but I’ll delve into that soon. First, let’s talk about Josie and Robert.

Both of these awesome people are on the road to medical awesomeness and have spent the last few years doing more studying than many of us will ever do our entire lives! They truly have a passion for what they do, and I’m in awe of some of the things that Josie has described to me that has been the long road that is medical school. Not only are these two intelligent beyond words, but they are so FUNNY and QUIRKY and unashamed to be themselves and be authentic. To me, above all things, authenticity is the greatest personal trait any one person can have.

They were not afraid to be themselves and insert their personalities throughout the entire day. Of course their day was destined for success because it was at Ashton Gardens north of Dallas, but besides the awesomeness of being surround with a rich array of friends and family, they also had a humanist officiant wed them, did their grand introduction to the “Futurama” theme and took a photo with literally every person there in attendance directly after the ceremony! But that’s not even the part that I mentioned above!

One of the most special, special things I can say I’ve ever seen at a ceremony was a moment that these two planned in which they whispered something special to one another. Something that no one else will really understand (and maybe never even know!). Just something shared between only them, known by only them. The second thing they did was at the very end of their reception: Yes, they did a private dance (y’all know how obsessed I am with those), but they actually gathered up everyone on the dance floor and said goodbye INDIVIDUALLY to every single person in attendance, along with a hug! I mean, that’s some serious magic right there.

Thank you, Josie and Robert, for allowing me to document such an important day in your life! I wish you many, many years of love and happiness!
