I’m a photographer based in Houston, TX that specializes in sophisticated wedding and high school senior photography.
Nestled in The Woodlands, Texas sits an enchanting wedding and events venue, The Peach Orchard. Formerly a historic peach orchard, this Northern European inspired venue is breathtaking. Together The Grove at Rudy’s Promise, Phoebe’s Garden and The Beloved Ballroom (currently under construction) are the most romantic setting for any bride and groom to exchange vows and say, “I do!”.
As a Houston wedding photographer, when I first learned of The Peach Orchard, I immediately knew it was a venue I wanted to host an intimate styled shoot. Everything about it screamed light and airy, just my style. Not to mention, the kindest owners and staff who welcomed us into their space with open arms. I knew I wanted a dream team of vendors to work with. Vendors who would create romance and elegance that any bride would love. This team did not disappoint!! From the floral inspired invitation suite with the delicate monogram tag designed by McKenzie at Paper Tie Affair to the most stunning of flowers and gowns, this editorial styled shoot was magical!
Danielle, with Elegantly Etched, is one amazing planner. Her inspiration was exactly what I had envisioned for the dreamy tablescape: elegance partnered with light and color. Heading into summer, bringing in light, but thoughtful design felt like the perfect thing to do! Working with Your Butler’s Pantry, the place setting design was perfection.
Rachel with Rose and Rae Design has unbelievable vision and creativity. She combined romantic garden roses and delicate ranunculus, accented by textural flowers in tones of cream, blush, and peach combined to create the arrangements. Low and lush centerpieces in gold compotes centered the table design, while draping floral installations accented the antique mantle and cake table for a unique set up. The cake was beautifully etched by Dolly’s Sweet Sensations. A grounded floral installation encircled the ceremony location, framing the gorgeous windows with dancing flowers and vines of climbing greenery.
Brides, look no further than Evangeline Bridal for your wedding gowns. Candice will treat you like a princess! She completely spoiled me by bringing four dresses! She knew I was dying to shoot the pink wedding gown with a bow! Our models looked liked they stepped off the runway with hair and makeup by Samantha at Polished Makeup and Hair.
This day would not have been possible without an amazing team of vendors who I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with! Thank you for trusting me to create some magic with you!
