Now that this lovely lady is enjoying life as a newlywed and has officially changed her last name, I can finally share her bridal portraits!

Jessica and Grant got married at Lost Oak Winery in Burleson, Texas and I took these photos there too. The winery is absolutely gorgeous and just completed a major renovation. If you’re in the area, I highly recommend stopping for a visit, tour of the vineyards, and wine tasting in the gift shop.

I met Jessica a couple years ago when I joined the fitness center. She was a personal trainer and group class instructor and now she’s the general manager! I couldn’t be more proud of this girl from North Dakooooooota and I’m blessed to call her friend. She’s as sweet as they come and beautiful – inside and out.

Jess’s mother wore this hat at her wedding and Jess wanted to incorporate the precious piece into her bridal session. Even though she did not wear this piece at the wedding, I’m so glad we got shots like this one. I absolutely love family heirlooms!

Grant’s mother collects squirrel figurines and sent the engaged couple these kissing squirrels. Confession: it took me FOREVER to balance them on the support wire of a grapevine to get this shot … but totally worth it.

Not only did I get to take Jess’s bridal portraits, but I was also a guest at their wedding and it was simplistic, charming, fun, and beautiful – everything a wedding should be! Every detail was perfect and reflected the couple’s personality. They also have jokesters in their family. Grant’s brother gave the most HILARIOUS Best Man Speech I’ve ever heard.

Grant and Jess, congratulations you two love squirrels and thank you for letting me a part of your special day. Big hugs and blessings!
