Imagine, if you will, a lush, green, canopy of mature trees.  Underneath is a quaint ceremony location with handmade decor.  In the background, you see what looks like an ivy-grown wall of stone, soaring high, like a castle tower.  This summer, I had the opportunity to photograph the very beautiful wedding of Holly & Jason at the Golf Club at Fossil Creek in Fort Worth.  I can’t even begin to tell you how beautiful this location was… my description doesn’t do it justice.  You just have to see for yourself.  Luckily, I happen to be a photographer, so I have plenty of pictures =)

Now, Holly was the perfect bride.  Yes, she has beautiful, red hair that is stunning, to say the least — but what made her a perfect bride was the way in which she handled everything on her wedding day.  We had several setbacks, including impending rain on her outdoor ceremony, but she handled it with ease and grace.  See, she knew something that wouldn’t allow her to feel defeated — she was going to marry her best friend, no matter what!

Not only was she marrying the love of her life, Jason, they were blending their beautiful family into one large, happy one.  Holly had a daughter, and Jason had twins.  Now, they are a very happy family of five!

Holly gave all three girls necklaces.  The girls loved them, and proudly wore them all day!

I am IN LOVE with this shade of pink!  Talk about an awesome job picking out bridesmaids dresses!!

Holly and Jason decided to do a first look.  This is where the groom sees the bride before the wedding ceremony.  It is actually quite beautiful, as they get a few quiet moments together… and there isn’t that pressure on him with everyone staring him down to see his first reaction to his lovely bride.  Jason was a little nervous… it was just so sweet!

All of Holly and Jason’s decor was handmade!

Because it wasn’t just Holly and Jason getting married, but they were joining their families together, they opted to do a sand ceremony.  This is one of my favorite ceremonies.  The idea behind it is that each person gets a color of sand.  They pour their sand in at the same time, mixing the colors.  Just as no one can separate the individual pieces of sand, no one will ever be able to separate this family.  Isn’t that just beautiful??

Jason surprised Holly when he dipped her for their first kiss!

Again, most of the decor was handmade, either by the bride herself, or her bridal party.

Holly did a mother-daughter dance!  That really made her daughter feel special!
