Courtney and John are officially married!!! I couldn’t have been more excited to be a part of their incredible Rustic Grace Estate wedding. It was beautiful and so full of love. Courtney and John met while they were attending Texas A&M! After inviting John to church, the two began dating.. and before long, John was ready to propose. After a sweet Estes Park engagement, I got to meet them for their Kimball Art Museum engagement session, where we talked all things wedding planning. It’s so crazy to think that now, all of that is behind them and they’re husband and wife!!!!
Courtney and John’s Rustic Grace Estate wedding was beautiful. Courtney chose a truly classic bridal look with a bright pop of blue in her earrings and a gorgeous shade of red on her lips. With matching red flowers in her bouquet, she looked just perfect alongside her bridesmaids in their light blue gowns. And when she and John met each other at the altar… cue all the emotions!! It was SUCH a beautiful moment!
The newlyweds opted not to do a first look, which made their meeting so much sweeter. Instead, Courtney did a first look with her bridesmaids and her dad. Both were just wonderful…. have I mentioned how much I LOVE first looks like that?! After their ceremony, we had the most beautiful sunset for Courtney and John’s portraits. I adore fall sunsets!! They’re SO warm and glowing. Courtney let me play with her veil a ton, and we got some truly romantic portraits of the two of them. They were just loving the time together and the fact that they are officially married.
Before long, it was time to take them back in for their reception. Everyone had a great time celebrating the newlyweds and even got to use their little custom towels as part of the farewell for Courtney and John. They decided to end the night with a private dance before heading out. I LOVE this trend. It’s such a nice way for the bride and groom to have a few extra moments together to soak in the whole day.
Congratulations, John and Courtney! Your day was just beautiful and I loved being a part of it with you both!!
