My First Texan Wedding: Kathy & Cary


Cowboy boots.

Cotton-Eyed Joe.

Warm apple pie.

This was my first official Texas wedding, where I truly got the “Texan” vibe, including cowboy boots and country music. It was the first time I heard Cotton-Eyed Joe played at a wedding and the first time I got to witness the line dancing to go along with it. It was so fun! And so different from any wedding I’ve ever been to.

The ceremony was at the Frisco Heritage Center with the cutest chapel! There was also a train depot with fantastic spots for wedding photography. The reception followed at The Ranch House at Austin Ranch, and since the weather was being quite cooperative, it was a beautiful venue, with a gorgeous sunset. The Event Studio did a fabulous job of coordinating the details, including a popcorn station and a pie station. Not to mention that the cake was gorgeous, and delicious! I had the pleasure of shooting alongside Allison Davis, who invited me to join her for Kathy and Cary’s wedding.

Does this not speak Texas, or what? I know, I’m such a California girl and I’m wowed by everything.

A moment of prayer before the big moment.

Right before the ceremony started, to keep the mood light before the serious moments started, Cary and his nephews asked for this shot, so I obliged. So funny.

Florals were arranged by the Urban Blossom.

They had fresh, warm apple pie! How awesome is that? This Texan wedding rocked!

The Cake Guys did an awesome job of assembling this beautifully rustic cake.

The wedding cake had beautiful details.

So this isn’t something I see at every wedding! Again, my introduction to the Texan wedding was awesome. So maybe now, it may be something I see more often. My first exposure to line dancing! Only in the south.

Right behind Kathy and Cary is Allison Davis, lovely wedding photographer in action. Thanks for having me!

Happy Wednesday!
