milky way wedding photo

      Sometimes you have an adventurous couple, who decide to get married a little bit off the path of civilization, who love star-gazing as much as you love taking photos of the night sky, and who aren’t afraid to try a different kind of wedding. Samantha and Bryan were so intrigued by my suggestion of a “reverse timeline” that they scheduled their wedding backwards: guests arrived, the bride and groom saw each other, everyone had a delicious vegan meal (by Vegeria) together, they were married at sunset, and then cupcake toasts and dances took place after dark. The best part was stealing off near midnight to a completely dark area on the ranch grounds and taking photos with the Milky Way in the background.

      Here are a few of my favorite photos from Sam and Bryan’s wonderful, casual, homegrown, vegan, ranch wedding in Mason, TX.

      Absolutely gorgeous!! I love that first look moment! <3

      Love those nighttime portraits! And the groom’s face when she is walking down the aisle is priceless.

      I love the archway with the the purple flowers, so sweet and subtle. Perfect for a wedding.

      Gorgeous from start to finish!
