In July of 2009, we had the pleasure of photographing the wedding of Gail and Richard. We arrived at the church early to capture the wedding party getting ready and to take some of the more traditional posed pictures of the guys and then the girls prior to the ceremony itself. Following an old tradition, this couple did not want to see each other until the ceremony. I always love to see the groom’s expression when he sees his bride for the first time; it’s such an emotional moment. They proclaimed their love for one another by exchanging vows at the United Methodist Church of Garland. It was a beautiful ceremony, and afterwards everyone headed to the reception, which was held at the Eastern Hills Country Club of Garland.

They were introduced, upon their arrival and they quickly moved through the typical wedding reception events. The opening of the buffet, cake cutting, toasting to the newlyweds, their first dance, and then the party started! Many guests hit the dance floor, and thoroughly enjoyed the celebration of the two people uniting as one. We did manage to steal the bride, groom, best man and maid of honor away from the party to hit the golf greens to capture some fun group photos and of course a few romantic images as well. The amazing sunset was a wonderful backdrop for a lovely couple! Best wishes to you both.
