nick and jess

I have been to Carlos Creek Winery twice for weddings, and both times, it has been sooooo hot and humid and the weather was changing faster than a flip of a switch!  Nick and Jess were troopers and just rolled with the day, and we did as well!  Even when it started pouring, but we still wanted to be outside…. No problem!  The wedding party was protect by the awning and part of the stable, and I stood out in the rain.  Whatever it takes to get the shot, am I right?  You can see in some of the wedding party images, rain drops falling :).  I am pretty sure that I resembled a drown rat by the time the ceremony started!  But it was so much fun, and the wedding party was a blast to work with!

As if you couldn’t tell from the images, Jess had the most awesome style when it came to her wedding.  She lined the ceremony aisle with some of her cowboy boots {the one that she really doesn’t wear anymore}, and filled them with the best smelling babies breath.  It was so beautiful!  All of her girls were in tan lace gowns, and everyone wore cowboy boots!  Of course, the guys looked awesome in their classic black tuxes, and kept cool by enjoying some beer before the ceremony, while the ladies sipped on mimosas.

All of the fun details aside, my favorite part of the day was the smiles on Nick and Jess’s face when they looked at each other!
