Kelly & Brendan : Chandelier of Gruene, New Braunfels, TX

It was a wonderful fall day to have a wedding and it was so much fun capturing these beautiful moments as Brendan and Kelly recited their vows to one another.  The wedding was in a beautifully secluded venue in New Braunfels, TX:  The Chandelier at Gruene.  This was a special event because Brendan, who is an officer in the Army, was deployed no long after they were married and they waited more than a year to enjoy a traditional ceremony.   The weather was kind as there wasn’t much direct sunlight bearing down on us and there was plenty of even lighting, giving me the freedom to shoot anywhere within the ceremony without worrying about the sun casting any wicked shadows. 

The Reception was filled with laughter as both families came together to celebrate the Nolan’s vows and my camera and I had a front row seat to all of the emotion and intimacy.  There is nothing quite like fall weddings!
