A huge mansion with classical architecture and so much history. We toured the venue of where their March reception will be prior to their engagement session. This helped us all imagine what the day will be like. I highly encourage tours with your photographer before the big day! As we walked, Jessica explained all of the images she was picturing herself in. Wearing her elegant gown with beautiful detail. Jess and I dreamed up all of the beauty we could capture on their day. Sean followed along saying “Yes, Honey” to all of her requests. He even threw in his own ideas (bonus points!). Sean grew up swimming at the club. His picture hangs on the wall of the room he will be getting ready in. Upon talking about the reception and seating situations, Jessica and Sean were brainstorming on how they could intertwine their families and make them feel connected. Which shows the true desires of their hearts. Their day in March will be a celebration of them finding each other and all of the things they love. Including bourbon and drinks from the Chocolate Holler. They may or may not also include Narnia memorabilia 😉
We walked through all of the sophisticated rooms at The Club at UKs Spindletop Hall.
Watching these two interact with one another, bounce ideas off each other, and share their hearts just solidified my confidence in their love.
They both love God and strive to have a relationship with Him. They both have waited to find the one whom their soul loves. Even though Jessica will be the one who (most of the time) in a restaurant says “what do you have that is healthy” and Sean will be the one asking for Foie Gras, they are choosing to chose each other. Forever. And that is why I love this job. I get to be a part of a couple’s forever. A family’s forever.
Jessica and Sean,
I am so happy for you two. I know that you will be perfectly imperfect together, and complement each other so well in your marriage. I am so glad that I have clients who care about photography. Who value creating memories as well. I could sit and chat with you guys at the Chocolate Holler all day, especially if I had unlimited White Blossoms! Love you guys and I can’t wait until March!
Ecclesiastes 3: 1-11a
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under Heaven: a time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance; a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together; a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; a time to seek, and a time to lose; a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; a time to love, and a time to hate; a time for war, and a time for peace. What gain has the worker from his toil? I have seen the business that God has given to the children of man to be busy with. He has made everything beautiful in its time.”
