Lone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer: Shane & Kourtney

May 28, 2014

There is something about Shane and Kourtney that I absolutely adore – I feel like we were friends in a past life.  They have such beautiful hearts and made Dylan and I feel welcomed throughout their wedding planning process and on their big day.  Kourtney and I share a love for the movie “Pride and Prejudice,” which (I think) is evident in her vintage and romantic wedding style.Round Rock Wedding PhotographyRound Rock Wedding Photography

It may be hard to believe, but Kourtney made all of her invitations and programs!  I cannot image how much time they took to make, but I love that she made everything about her wedding so personal.Lone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer-45Lone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer-49Bridesmaids gifts in boxes shaped like books

Kourtney even made all the hangers for her dress and her bridesmaids!

Just after the ceremony, Kourtney and Shane loaded up in the Jeep with Dylan and me (this is only the second couple to ever ride with us), as everyone else had left for the reception and there weren’t any other cars for them to ride in.  HA!  We help out our couples however we can – even playing chauffeur.  :D  The four of us headed out to where we shot their engagement photos, but as soon as we were set to start shooting (and I do mean literally just as we started), Shane and Kourtney were engulfed in mosquitos.  I have a total of two shots of them there on their wedding day: one with Kourtney swatting a mosquito off Shane’s face and another with them reacting to the CRAZY amount of blood-suckers surrounding them.  We ran back to the Jeep where we had to kill about 50 mosquitos collectively.  It was a swarm of mosquitos.  The swarm was a mini-blessing, though, because as we were leaving a torrential down-pour of rain started battering the Jeep.  Kourtney’s dress nor our camera gear could have survived it, so I’m glad we were not out in the rain.  As much as Kourtney wanted to take pictures out at the family ranch for her wedding day, she was THANKFUL for the rain, as the crops need it so severely.  She has a heart of GOLD – truly!  Lone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer-123

Driving to the reception, the rain let up just enough for us to pull over to take these shots.  I’m super excited about this location, as I’ve been wanting to shoot here for quite some time.  This back alley is actually where I walk my dog!  :D  This made me love them even more: the fact that Shane and Kourtney were trusting enough to let me pick a totally random location to make up for not being able to shoot out at the ranch.Lone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer-124 Lone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer-130 Lone Oak Barn SwingLone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer-4 Pride and Prejudice themed wedding details book lovers themed wedding decor Lone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer-17 Pride and Prejudice themed wedding decor Lone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer-27 Lone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer-30Lone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer-25 Round Rock Wedding PhotographyVintage Wedding detailsSnack bar wedding ideas Dessert table at Lone Oak Barn Wedding Baseball groom's cake Lone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer-153 Pride and Prejudice themed cake table at wedding Lace and Gold wedding cake

The time and thought they put into their wedding is evident in every detail.  Even their exit confetti was punched by hand into the shape of hearts.  Lone Oak Barn Wedding Photographer-237

    I love how you always manage to find the beauty in what otherwise might be an unfortunate circumstance on such a memorable day. I’m sensing a theme here with the inclement weather. ; ) wink, wink

    As always…….love your work!!
