Photobucket
Honestly...I don't know where to start! I had an amazing, fun, awesome, crazy, cool, super, grand 10 hours full of shooting at this wedding! Colette has been a looonnngg time friend!!! Great memories *wink*...when I got to meet Jesse at their engagement shoot we had a blast! I knew right off the bat these two were crazy in love:) I love shooting with people I know and that know how to have fun!

When I drove up to the Woodlands Plantation Home where they got married I was excited! My mind started going wild with ideas and fun places to shoot. The details...the scenery...the wedding party...the atmosphere was soooo relaxed...the grounds were beautiful...the sunshine...the blue sky...the green grass...the happy groom met with a huge smile!...the happy bride was glowing:) So sweet...Anyway I got to work right away...here ya go! Enjoy:)

I don't think there was one single girl, that saw Colette's awesome shoes, that didn't comment...I think they top it all off if you want to know my opinion...

Colette & Jesse chose to not see each other before the wedding...It was tricky...he was either on the front porch hanging with the guys and she was on the back porch with the girls...or you'd hear "BRIDE INSIDE"!!! This was to let everybody know to hide Jesse! It was so cute! So I had them do the famous "stand behind the door and hold hands"...well these two just glowed...honestly she didn't want to let go of his hand...

and this one...wow It is the BEST! So Colette wanted to get a picture of everybody jumping off of this awesome log right in front of the swamp...so I would count to 3 right?...well before I got to 3 the log rolled forward and everybody went flying...then that must have enticed the alligator to come up out of the water after them!!! Which there was one that had been visiting earlier...so thats how Colette got this AMAZING shot:)

Hey Erin!!! I love, love, LOVE what you got! It was truly beautiful. I just wanted to elaborate on the alligator picture...The log rolled forward from all of us standing on it and we all went flying. The movement must have enticed the 'gator, b/c he then lunged out of the water after us! Fun stuff.
