pecan springs ranch wedding // bess + michael

So excited to share these photos from Bess and Michael’s big day!!

The makeup artist taught the girls how to properly wipe their tears during
the wedding so that their makeup wouldn’t run. Genius!

The lucky man!

The guys having a jolly good time.

Such a pretty ring!

The beautiful bride reading a note from her soon to be husband!

Dress time! Love this shot of Bess with her mom.

And the verdict is…


The ceremony and reception took place at Pecan Springs Ranch.
Their wedding was beautiful and had so many creative details!

They even had a food trailer!!

For dessert they had the cutest pies!

What is your favorite memory from the wedding day?
M: The first dance 
B: Towards the end of the night we took a moment to stand at the top of the hill and look down at everyone dancing, eating, and having fun at the reception.  We have so many people who love and support us.
Funniest thing that happened?
M: Losing power in the middle of the first dance, then having to go back on the dance floor to finish the dance after the power came back on.
B: When the ceremony ended and we were walking back down the isle, Michael grabbed me, dipped me back, and kissed me.  I was so surprised!!
If you were to go back and do it again, would you change anything?
We wished we had had more time to talk to each person, especially the people who came from far away.  
Advice for future brides/grooms?

M: Do what YOU want on your wedding day.  There’s no reason to follow traditions just for the sake of tradition.  It’s all about the two of you.
B: We took about 10 minutes after the ceremony to slip away, eat dinner, and spend some time alone together.  I think that was the best decision we made during the whole wedding process.  It really gave us time to slow down and enjoy what had just happened before joining the rest of the party.  Also, hire a great photographer :)
