Kaitlyn & Kyle hold a special place in my heart, and their Waxahachie wedding was nothing short of spectacular.

Last year, I started a partnership with Shapiro Diamonds where they provide a free proposal or portrait session with the purchase of some of their rings.  Kyle was the first guy that I talked to, and together we came up with a plan for his proposal.  He had been dating Kaitlyn for a year, and she was looking for a photographer to do a couples session for the two of them.  So, he told her that he was referred to me, and we set up a session.  He knew he wanted to propose in the barn at Cedar Hill State Park.  I told him that we would end there, and when I said “The lighting is perfect,” that would be his cue to pop the question.  Check out the prettiness that we got that day.

So, this is where I said, “The lighting is perfect.”  Kaitlyn was so surprised  =)Cedar Hill State Park proposal Cedar Hill State Park proposal 2015-04-01_0048 Cedar Hill State Park proposal Cedar Hill State Park proposal Cedar Hill State Park proposal

 

Then, a few months ago, I was able to do Kaitlyn’s bridal pictures.  All I can say is, “Wow.”  She looked AMAZING.

March 21 was here before we knew it and Kaitlyn and Kyle were finally getting married.  I couldn’t believe how fast the the time went.  They got married at St. Paul Episcopal Church in Waxahachie.  What a pretty church.  I was swooning over all the stained glass.  Their wedding was full of wonderful emotion and sweetness.

As we were about to start the ceremony, I happened to notice a guest writing on a guest heart through the frosted glass window.  I ran down the aisle to grab this shot  =)Waxahachie wedding at St. Paul Episcopal Church and reception at Waxahachie Civic Center Waxahachie wedding at St. Paul Episcopal Church and reception at Waxahachie Civic Center

The priest was asking if anyone objected to this union, and Kyle turns around with this look…  =)Waxahachie wedding at St. Paul Episcopal Church and reception at Waxahachie Civic Center Waxahachie wedding at St. Paul Episcopal Church and reception at Waxahachie Civic Center Waxahachie wedding at St. Paul Episcopal Church and reception at Waxahachie Civic Center Waxahachie wedding at St. Paul Episcopal Church and reception at Waxahachie Civic Center Waxahachie wedding at St. Paul Episcopal Church and reception at Waxahachie Civic Center

When they knelt down, everyone started to laugh and Kaitlyn (and I) had no idea why.  He told her that she hadn’t seen his shoes yet.  I didn’t see it until I stepped in the aisle and saw on his shoes it was written “Save her!”Waxahachie wedding at St. Paul Episcopal Church and reception at Waxahachie Civic Center Waxahachie wedding at St. Paul Episcopal Church and reception at Waxahachie Civic Center Waxahachie wedding at St. Paul Episcopal Church and reception at Waxahachie Civic CenterWaxahachie wedding at St. Paul Episcopal Church and reception at Waxahachie Civic Center Waxahachie wedding at St. Paul Episcopal Church and reception at Waxahachie Civic Center
