We were delighted to capture a truly festive Kyle wedding in a setting that brings past and present together for eternal moments like this – Texas Old Town! As you can see from these shots of the reception bash, it was a party. 380 guests turned to see Teri and Nathan Dawson get hitched in a scenic outdoor ceremony.
The bride, groom and respective families were just as warm and genuine as their surroundings. Teri and Nathan both attended Texas A&M and they continue to live in College Station. Teri, the daughter of a retired USAF Major, has a naturally bubbly, vivacious personality that shines right through a lens -- the camera loves her almost as much as her new hubby does.
As you might assume from the images above, her infectious laugh and high spirits were much in evidence on this happy day.
But we soon saw that Teri has a serious side as well. Her meticulous planning and execution of the wedding made that very clear, as did her deeply-held religious convictions.
We got this fantastic sunlight-splashed photo of the bride and groom praying in the decrepit old barn months before the ceremony)
Everything went beautifully. At the ceremony, house party girls handed out fans and programs to the guests nestled among the trees. We kept things rolling smoothly by electing to do all the formal photos while guests were enjoying cocktails. The band also made an extra effort toward the occasions' success -- this excellent group had only been together for about six months, so they got there at 2pm to make sure their eclectic mix of country and rock was note-perfect for the actual event. (It was, too!)
