Kellie and Jacob are two sweet, adventurous souls! They met at Texas A&M, and these Aggies have since traveled the world together. When they’re together, they’re up for anything. We first met them during their engagement session, and they were such a delight together and so playful. The wide open field with the rustic barn, the charming wooden swing, and beautiful glow of sunlight was just a preview for the warm southern personality of their wedding day! A few months later, we were so excited for their Vista West Ranch wedding!
Kellie and Jacob’s Big Day
Kellie and her family and friends were able to spend the morning together. They got ready in the bridal suite of the Vista West Ranch in the scenic Texas Hill Country. She looked like she could have been featured in a magazine as her off-the-shoulder mermaid style gown with sparkling silver applique accents. The friendship of her bridal party, their sheer expression of love, and their prayer over her blessing her wedding day was a true testament to Kellie’s own warmth. And I was thrilled to be there to capture such emotion, and even a tear from the bride as she read a heartfelt note from Jacob as she prepared to meet him at the ceremony.
The juxtaposition of the elegance of the wedding party in the soft, light colors and the delicate flowers by Petal Pushers against weathered wood and rusted tin of the venue was absolutely perfect! And just look at the smiles as the couple exchanged their vows! So happy!
The reception was gorgeous with family style seating at long barnwood tables allowed for plenty of time for mingling. And ladder-ball! And as the sun continued to set, the willow sphere lighting stole the show looking like little sparklers indoors! The fun of the evening did not stop as they danced, posed with photo props, laughed, and served donuts!!
We adore Kellie’s love of all things Disney and both of their great big hearts!
What a gorgeous day spent with an even more gorgeous couple. We are so blessed to have played a role in Kellie and Jacob’s Vista West Ranch Wedding! Make sure to check out more sweet vows from The Bird and the Bear Photography.
