I can’t even begin to say how honored I am to have photographed this wedding. It’s impossible to be around Ashlee and Derek and not like them. They are both so fun to be around, and so in love with each other you can’t help but be happy for them. When I first met with Ashlee she told me how her and Derek met, how he proposed and how she was just excited to finally marry her best friend. Swoon.
Their ceremony took place at one of my favorite locations: Houston Oaks Country Club outside under a gorgeous oak tree.
Ashlee’s Maggie Sottero dress looks phenomenal on her.
As always, the ever fab Lara with LZ Floral did an amazing job with all things floral.
Ashlee and Derrick opted to see each other before the ceremony. I love when my couples decide to do this. It gives them a few moments to each other (probably the only moments they will have all day with just one another) and it allowed us to get some good portrait time in as well.
I love the raw emotion in these next few photos.
Ashlee and Derrick….you two are one gorgeous couple!!
They love to laugh together
and also be romantic with each other
I love the light coming through the trees.
