Colston and Bailey shared the most beautiful wedding day at the French Farmhouse in Collinsville, Texas on July 8, 2022!

Classic, elegant mixed with modern bride was the perfect vision for this stunning white chapel/white barn venue. Upon walking through the front doors of the reception hall, you were met with grand floral arrangements of white roses and lush greenery adorning each table. The fireplace was embellished with the same greenery and arrangements along with gold candelabras to create the perfect place for the newlyweds to share a dinner with all of their family and friends. Bailey’s bouquet was filled with white roses and greenery which was the perfect addition in her detail flat lay images. I could NOT get over her beautiful lace heels from…Amazon! Every detail held immense thought and care and executed to perfection for their wedding day!

Bailey knew she wanted to get dressed in the new bridal suite within the chapel and it made for the perfect space for her to step into her wedding dress. She also chose for this to be a special moment with her mom and bonus mom which made it such a sweet treasure to capture.

The altar of the chapel was the perfect space for a first look with her bridesmaids on this hot summer day. Away from the main venue where the groom was getting ready, Bailey astonished her bride tribe with her strapless, classic lace wedding dress. Their faces truly say it all; we love a bride tribe that just can’t hold back the tears when they see their best friend all gussied up in her dress for the first time, ready to walk down the aisle.

Colston’s getting ready shots were in the sun room attached to the main venue with the white brick fireplace, brilliant lighting from the large windows, and clean, white walls. He chose to do a first look with his mom which was a first for me to get to capture. Seeing his mom’s sweet face as she saw her son all sharp and spiffy on his wedding day was truly priceless. Her expression spoke volumes and made it hard to hold back tears behind the lens.

Bailey and Colston’s ceremony was emotional for everyone. This sweet couple had been together for so long prior to getting engaged and grown up with one another. Seeing them finally tying the knot and stepping foot into their next chapter was so impactful, not only for them but, for their loving family and friends as well. There was not a dry eye in the chapel when the doors opened and Bailey walked down the aisle to meet Colston.

Before heading off to enjoy reception, family and wedding party stayed behind to get a photo with the sweet couple. Everyone was so thrilled to snag a hug with them and share a moment of excitement before the party began!

Bailey and Colston’s couples portraits were a DREAM! The sunset was gorgeous behind the venue and these two were happy to frolick around taking advantage of every moment together before returning to their guests.

There was not shortage of fun, excitement, or celebration at the Harris’ reception! Between the sweet toasts, delicious dinner of tacos, and tons of dancing, it was easily a reception to remember. Bailey and Colston also had the opportunity to sneak away for some after-dark portraits. The piecĂ© de rèsistance was their heartfelt private last dance followed by walking through sparklers as their friends and loved ones waved goodbye and wished the newlyweds their best wishes!
