The past few months have brought some crazy changes to my life. I’m so grateful I still have the chance and honor to capture these precious days with photos! This venue holds a special place in my heart from my long time love of horses. I was so excited when I pulled up to see the rustic chapel, vintage farm items and especially the horse barn!
It was a great day! Everyone seemed at ease and the love everyone has for this couple was clear!
Enjoy a little glimpse at their story from the groom’s point of view:
Kat and I met when she came down to Texas for a week to attend a mutual friend’s wedding. She had met a bunch of Aggies at Colorado LT and came down to attend the wedding and visit the friends she had made. It turned out we had a lot of the same friends, so we got to know each other a little bit. She was living in Ohio and I was in Texas, but I found out that spring that she had decided to move to Texas for reasons entirely unrelated to me (we hadn’t talked at all since she’d visited). After she arrived in Texas in August, we soon became good friends. We ended up being in the same homegroup and partners in an English Conversation Class group. We pretty quickly realized we both had hearts for international students, and our friendship began to deepen.
I was romantically interested in Kat almost the moment she arrived in Texas. She was not interested in me. Thankfully, she was oblivious to my interest in her, which made hanging out with her a lot easier. It took a little bit of “chasing”, but eventually she caught on. We started dating on February 21, 2015. For our first date, we got pizza at Mr. G’s and went to an acapella concert (which was pretty cool).
That next June, we made the leap of driving two days to visit her family in Ohio. It was my first time meeting any of them, and the experience of spending four days in the car together brought us a lot closer. Kat’s family instantly loved me. Things continued to progress. That fall we started to seriously discuss the possibility of marriage, and over Christmas I started shopping for a ring. We were engaged on February 6. Engagement was a blur, and before we knew it it was July 23 and time to get married!
We’re not really sure what the future holds, but we’re excited to see what God has in store for us!
Thank you for letting me capture your special day, I know the future holds GREAT things for you all!
