Dripping Springs Backyard Wedding: Zena & Janek are married!

Wedding

Janek buttoned his suit in his childhood bedroom, while his bride laughed and cried with her bridesmaids and mom in the room next door, changing from the robes that Zena’s mom had handmade into their beautiful long dresses.  While everyone finished getting ready, I borrowed the rings to take photos of them on quartz that Janek’s family found on their land.  Hiding behind a tree during their first look, I got chills when I saw the pure joy beaming from their faces.  -HOLD ON- Sorry this is so sappy, y’all, I keep trying to be cool about how much I loved photographing this wedding, but it isn’t working.  So just to give you the fast version of why I loved it:  Zena tearfully Skyping with sister and family in Ukraine, special bracelet from said sister, also sweet letter from sister, LIGHT FOR DAYZZZZ, pre-ceremony piano playing and laid-back toasting, amazing family who made everything happen, laughter-filled ceremony, Russian quote about love, surprise accordion recessional, MORE PERFECT LIGHT!, portraits that make me weak at the knees, twinkly light reception under the full moon, live band, sneaking a dancing with my brother (cute guy in the yellow rose shirt), night portrait experiment success, and unquantifiable amounts of love.  See, I just saved you about 20 minutes by just making a list.  Now stop reading and look at the photos!
