Lauren & Dustin's Rainy Fall Wedding

We've had so many fabulous couples we've worked with this year. People ask me all the time, do you have any of those "Bridezillas" you have to do weddings for? And I can honestly say that we're pretty lucky here at Harbuck & Co. Not only have I had some of the most lovely brides and handsome grooms, but they've been good at heart, sweet and friendly, delightful people that I'm sure I'd be friends with had we met under different circumstances. 

Lauren & Dustin are part of that group. We had so much fun shooting their engagement photos with their little pup Mae and then a few weeks later shooting Lauren's bridal photos. She is stunning and it was like working with a model for a magazine! We were excitedly anticipating their wedding day and the chance to work with them again. As usual here in east Texas, the weather can be unpredictable and we experienced quite a bit of rain from the outer bands of Hurricane Patricia. And while their wedding day was a soggy one, there was a lot of bright & happy spirit among the wedding party, family & guests. 

They were married in a traditional old fashioned white chapel at Bella Sera Ranch and held their reception in the Grand Hall next door, where floor to ceiling windows let in lots of natural light and the expansive space allowed for a fun party to ensue. We even got into the spirit of the weather & went outside later that evening for some fun shots in the rain with the couple. It was a bittersweet time, we hated for our journey with Lauren & Dustin to end, but we are very happy to see them married and to see what the future has in store for them. We wish them a long and happy life together!
