Alicia was the most bubbly and vivacious bride of the season and her wedding was all about the special people in her and Todd’s life coming together. Here a a few of the highlights from their big day at Reunion Ranch.
Love these red bridesmaids shoes
What an incredible day it was and my most favorite part was that she walk down the aisle to her groom singing her a song and playing the guitar. It was one of the most genuine and sweet take on a traditional ceremony. I have no idea how Todd made it through the entire song and there wasn’t a dry eye in the place.
A favorite moment of mine during the ceremony. One of Alicia’s best friend’s and bridesmaid was singing a song to the both of them. I knew the words spoke to Alicia’s heart at this very second.
And…now for some of my favorite portraits ever! I just love them. The sun light was just gorgeous. Thanks to the couple for trusting me with this extra time…its so very very important to carve out some dedicated along time with the photographer. All of my couples say its SO worth it.
So, for those that have never been to a Polish-Texan wedding (lots of them out in Washington and Brazos Country) this is called the Grand March. Its a traditional dance that started with everyone ushering through the village or town to let the folks know that a wedding was about to start and EVERYONE is invited.
It gets a little complicated and the crowds of people are interwoven amongst themselves.
Okay, instead of ‘where’s waldo’ try and find ‘where’s Jenny’
It ends with everyone in a large circle and the bride and groom in the middle for their first dance.
A big congratulations to Alicia and Todd. And thanks to my awesome second shooter Matt Johnson for getting those killer shots of the Grand March from above.
