Here is part 2 of Chris & Jessica’s beautiful castle wedding! Enjoy!
DKP Insider moment: I (Ashley) want to share just a little bit about why Micah & I work so well together. Well, one of the reason’s anyway. It’s like, we’re on the same wave link… yet, have two different perspectives. This is is PRIME example of what I’m talking about. We both had the exact same idea at the exact same time, but we approached the idea SO completely differently. I’m typically more simplistic, let it happen, get it about how I want it. Micah is more detailed, make it happen, and get exactly what she’s envisioning. Our two perspectives work so well together, but in this case – it definitely shows that her approach was the winner. Look for yourselves. It makes me laugh every time. Can you guess who’s is who’s?

Chris & Jessica technically met on the internet, which automatically makes them cool. Jessica’s & Chris’ mutual friend Staley had visited Chris for the weekend and Chris was Instant Messaging Staley to tell her thanks for coming down. Unfortunately (actually… very fortunately), Staley was not at her computer – instead Jessica was. Then began the friendship between Chris & Jessica. After months of a friendship came years of a dating relationship, and finally an engagement, then at last a wedding! The two of them are so comfortable together, so loving, and SO fun. I believe with all my heart that laughter is one of the BEST tools/remedies/aids in marriage! If you can laugh at the little (and BIG) things, you will enjoy life so much more and you won’t sweat the small things that don’t really matter! Chris & Jessica definitely know how to laugh together and just enjoy each other’s company! So sweet!
We had SUCH a great time capturing their love in a place that was incredibly magical anyway! The Greystone Castle in Mingus is so incredibly beautiful. It’s right on I20, which makes it easy for guests to find and a GREAT middle ground for someone who wants to get married between West Texas and North/Central Texas! There were SO many incredible places to shoot around the castle! We had a hay-day!
Chris & Jessica, it was an honor being able to spend the day with the two of you. Ya’ll are such a special couple and we pray a huge blessing on your marriage! Enjoy your sneak peek!
Chris & Jess decided on a First Look. They told me that they were SO glad they did it because they released on the nerves they were feeling and could truly enjoy their day! They also got to have time for lots of purdy pictures!
I love how Jessica left her shoes at the bottom of the stairs! She was so afraid that she would trip on the way down, so she left them at the bottom! Great idea!
This is such a sweet moment between Jessica & her dad right before he walks her down the aisle. Kind of like a last minute daddy/daughter moment. LOVE it.
Toast to the bride and groom!
Stay tuned for Part 2 with more incredibly beautiful stuff!!

Brooke has a knack for style and all things fabulous. It was so apparent in her choice of dresses, accessories, and location. She’s a stylin’ bride, but still timeless. All those things together make a SUPER fun bridal session! After Brooke & Hunter’s wedding a few weekends ago, we’ve been itching to put these incredible pictures from Brooke’s bridal up. Her beauty is so evident on the outside, but it’s so awesome to know how sweet and kind she is as well! We had a blast taking pictures at her friend’s land in Lipan. So many options… flowers… trees…. fields… fences! OH… and of course, the first thing we saw when we pulled up was the iron gate that was going to be used for the wedding. It was so fun just to put it out in a field and see what all we came up with.
Brooke, you are an amazing girl and we are so happy for you and Hunter! So glad we can finally post these now! Hope ya’ll had fun on your honeymoon!

Although we had talked through email, we officially met Jackie & Joseph for the first time at the Harbor on Lake Rockwall. There were tons of people out enjoying the beautiful weather and all of the neat restaurants and shops at the place, and it was so fun to shoot somewhere new! We spent lots of time walking around and talking just getting to know the two of them and of course photographing their cuteness – love it! Jackie & Joseph, thank you for letting us spend the evening with you guys! Ya’ll are a ton of fun! We hope you love your images! Can’t wait until your wedding on New Year’s Eve! Yay!

I (Micah) will never forget the day I met Arlie — she was so quiet and reserved, yet wasn’t afraid to speak her mind! I was so excited to have her in my small group at Sam Houston State. I felt like I had nothing to offer her since she was an upper classman but I immediately fell in love with her heart. Over the course of my sophomore year, Arlie and I developed a very special bond that has continued over the years. I am so protective over Arlie and knew it would take one special guy to capture her heart… VERY special.
Arlie was driving through Abilene one afternoon and stopped by to visit me in my new hometown – Abilene. She began to tell me how she was hanging out with this guy… but just as friends. I knew in my heart this guy was THE ONE she was waiting for (but I didn’t tell her). It wasn’t long after we met up in Abilene that she called me to tell me they were dating, and not much time later when I received THE phone call that she was engaged!!
Keith, you are one blessed guy. You are marrying a princess. Arlie, isn’t God SO FAITHFUL?!? . I love you both!! Can’t wait ’til the wedding!
