Ashelynn Manor Wedding Photos | Kat & Kyle

Jun 21, 2012 No Comments


Another beautiful wedding at Ashelynn Manor in Magnolia, Texas.  Kat & Kyle have been such an adoring couple to work with.  Their optimism, playfulness and sense of humor showed through every photo I took of their engagement session, Kat’s bridal session, and even her boudoir session…oo la la! (ha, sorry guys – no link to that one!)

The first time I met Kat was at her home for her photography consultation.  Super cute, upbeat and definitely a girl who knows what she wants!  I was so stoked to welcome to them to the Motley wedding family and spend this amazing journey with them.

2011 was a terrible year for weather in Houston.  Documented as the 3 worst drought in recorded Texas history, 100% of Texas was in drought status.  So what are the odds that it would rain on the day of their engagement session?  Understatement.  It POURED the day of their session….like, hurricane forced winds-evacuate the island kind of rain! Okay, maybe not evacuation style, but it was pretty hard!!  Despite the terrible weather forecast, Kat and Kyle were not to be discouraged and we prepared for the worst and hoped for the best as we headed to Galveston last fall.  A great sign that I was going to get to work with an amazing couple!

It was there that I realized why these two are so great together!  We had an amazing time getting to know each other, laughing and being silly.  They got a peek at what a “creative mind” looks like when it’s completely stimulated…an all over the place, non-sentence finishing artist!  And their pictures are some of my favorite to date!

So here’s a plug for all you bride-to-be’s: check out Brickhouse Bridal in The Woodlands!  This is where you’ll find Kat (and some of the other ladies from her wedding) when she’s not spending her time with her new hubby.  We also have Brickhouse Bridal to thank for Kat’s amazing wedding & bridesmaid dresses (and a few token shots from her boudoir session!)

With all three of these sessions, I had more and more time to get to know Kat & Kyle, the life they lead, and see all the yummy food they cook together!  The day of their wedding was a much anticipated day that was well worth the wait.  I sincerely enjoyed meeting all of their friends and family and getting to know them even better than I already did!  I’ll stop chatting now so you can enjoy some of their photos…

I love it when the bridal party helps prep each other for the day! It really shows their close knit group and bond they have…

Even a veil can use a little hairspray every now and then…all hands on deck! Kat, do you feel like a princess yet?

So this group of guys had me in tears from laughing so hard!

“I like the attitude I’m getting from you over there!”

Holla!  Here’s their First No-Look! They rocked my socks!

And here comes the bride…

“oooo, hot DAYUM, look at my woman!”…. In my head, that’s what Kyle’s saying here…

So I’m lovin’ this next picture.  It totally captures Kat’s sassy and sarcastic attitude when Kyle makes a joke…or in this case, fumbles with the ring…

So powerful! <3

This reception dress is SO CUTE! Loved the getaway dress!

Kat, tryouts for the girls softball team is next week. I think you’re a shoe in!

Okay, let me preface this next photo with how much their last dance ROCKED!  Garth Brooks’ Shameless was blaring through the speakers and it was like he had been rehearsing this moment for weeks!  Kyle spins out of their close and sweet dance and shows the crowd just how much he loves his new bride!  I just got goosebumps thinking about it again!


To Kat & Kyle:  From the bottom of my heart, Thank You, for including me in such an amazing day in your lives.  The journey was so much fun for me and I’m thrilled to say I have many more new friends from our journey together this last year.   I’m saving a date for your first maternity pictures! (Family & Friends: if you’re reading this, no no, I don’t have an inside scoop on anything; I mean in the future…) 😉
