We are so thrilled to feature this lovely blush and black wedding by Ashley Esfandiari Photography today! Jeremy and Sarah married at Pine Hall at Amber Springs in Montgomery with tons of fun moments and lots of love. Don't miss the gorgeous pink flowers by The Blooming Idea and all of those fun dance scenes with a party atmosphere created by DJ Dave Productions.
Jennifer and Cody of Wedding Fanatics always do an amazing job at capturing the personalities of a bride and groom and the heart of their wedding . Lauryn & Kris were married at The Woodlands Church Chapel in The Woods but got ready and had their first look & picture taking at Crystal Springs, where their reception was later held.
Here is a fun little piece of insider info for all of you Say Yes to the Dress fans: Lauryn’s family surprised her and flew her to NYC to go dress shopping. She ultimately chose this Pnina Tornai dress from Kleinfeld Bridal and actually got to meet Pnina that day.
Press play and I promise you will smile all the way through!
The wedding video is such a special way to capture those unique moments of a wedding and this one by Wedding Fanatics! does not disappoint. From a fun acapella session in the bridal suite to the sweet toast by the bride's dad, this wedding video will definitely make your Wednesday extra sweet!
We are so excited to share Jessica and Bart's beautiful rustic wedding by Photography By Niki with you today. Jessica described herself as a simple and easy bride. She admits that she doesn't remember one thing the preacher said but will always treasure their first dance because it truly was their first dance! Jessica fell in love with Pine Lake Ranch the moment she and her maid of honor went to see it. Don't miss her lovely cake by Dream Cakes! One of our favorite things about this wedding - the old barn look mixed with vintage lace.
How did you meet?
We met at my best friend's wedding. She married someone in the Air Force and his best friend is also in the Air Force. When I went to the wedding, they introduced us.
How did Bart propose?
Bart rented a helicopter and we flew to Galveston and he proposed in the helicopter!
When I came to visit Pine Lake Ranch, I immediately fell in love with this beautiful, old tree and knew this is it. And Beau and Audrey were the sweetest things through everything. They would take care of anything we needed.

Prepare your heart for Jessica and Chet's rustic and elegant wedding day. Their photos melted mine. Lush gorgeous florals, appointed with elegant vintage pieces by Rent Some Vintage, and a bride and her maids stunning in their Princess Bridal gowns. Jessica and Chet met at a party in College Station in 2008. Jessica shared about the night they met and all the fun wedding details.
WB: How did you meet Chet?
I attended a party with my usual group of ladies, which included Jaune, my Matron of Honor. We arrived at the party disappointed to see very few of our friends. What immediately drew our attention was a rowdy group of El Campo natives rolling around on the floor dancing to the song, “Shout!” I was not impressed.
WB: What are three moments that stand out to you from your wedding day?
They would definitely be walking down the aisle, my father-daughter dance, and when the DJ let me do the turn-table.
WB: Your dress is gorgeous! What made you choose it?
I always thought I wanted a big, fluffy ball gown, but when I was trying on dresses at Princess Bridal and tried it on, I just loved it.
WB: Do you have a funny memory from your wedding, one that just makes you laugh when you think about it.
Yes! During the reception, one of the guests took off his tie and started a limbo game!
WB: What was your wedding day splurge item?
Originally, we weren't going to hire a videographer, but in end we did and I am so glad that we did.
WB: What advice do you have for bride's planning their weddings right now?
Try to get as much done ahead of time as you possibly can. I procrastinated on something and it made the last couple of weeks leading up to the wedding stressful. So, get everything done and spend the last few weeks, relaxing so you can really enjoy your big day.
