Things To Do Before Hiring Your Wedding Photographer!

Dori & Preston | Briscoe Manor Wedding

Dori & Preston are so incredibly sweet and were such a joy to photograph!  Our best friend, Michael, went to law school with Preston so I’ve known these two lovebirds for a few years.  He proposed to Dori at The Texas Renaissance Festival, one of their favorite spots, a few years back and they finally tied the knot February 27th at Briscoe Manor!  The weather was completely gorgeous!   All of the details were perfect thanks to Dori’s amazing planning and great execution by the wonderful girls at Briscoe Manor!  The stunning flowers had KALE in them! Kale, yall!!  I could barely stand it!  And, to top it off, Dori rocked her dress better than any BHLDN models!  It was glorious and such a privilege to be there to photograph every little detail!  Dori & Preston got ready in their suite at Sugarland’s The Marriott in Town Square… wedding dress detailwedding dress detail mirrorjimmy choo lorelai wedding shoestiffany boxes jewelry earringswedding jewelryjimmy choo lorelai wedding shoesjoe malone cologne weddinggroom fixing tie in mirrorgroomsmen getting readymother putting on bride's dressbride putting on jewelryDori made a STUNNING bride …beautiful bride black and whitebride putting on jimmy choo lorelai wedding shoes… and her groom was pretty dapper as well!  : ) groom portait simple boutonniere first look briscoe manorbride walking first lookfirst look briscoe manor wedidngfirst look briscoe manor wedidngfirst look briscoe manor wedidngfirst look briscoe manor wedidngbride groom portraits briscoe manorbride groom portraits briscoe manorbride groom portraits briscoe manorbridal portrait briscoe manorbridal hair sideswept braidThese flowers, y’all!! : D  Senterpiece did such a great job! gorgeous white and green bouquet with kalebride groom sitting cutebride sitting on groom's lapbride swinging on swingsoft portrait of bridebride on tree swingbride kissing groom on cheekbride and groom walking in fieldgorgeous bridal bouquet detailcustom date sign wedding daybriscoe manor outdoor ceremonybriscoe manor outdoor ceremonywooden guest book signbriscoe manor wedding unplugged ceremony signcute ring beareradorable flower girl with flower crownbride walking with dadLook how happy Preston is!  I just love it!
