Earlier this year, I scouted a New Braunfels wedding venue, The Gardens of Cranesberry View. I was preparing for a second shooting job with Cristina Young. The scouting was in preparation for Maralee and Raleigh’s March wedding. As a second shooter, I don’t get to know the lead photographer’s clients very well, but this couple was so sweet. Raleigh is a Marine (hoorah!) and the couple’s strong faith was always visible. March 23rd turned out to be a very cold and windy day, but it didn’t rain as the forecast had suggested it would.
As the second shooter for this wedding, my primary assignment was to capture the details of the reception room and the day from the groom’s perspective. I stayed with Raleigh and his groomsmen prior to the ceremony as they dressed, laughed and cut up. The most tender moment of the day that I witnessed, was when Raleigh met Maralee prior to the wedding so they could pray together. They held hands and leaned toward each other, but the solidness of a door kept them from actually seeing each other. Their clergyman stood nearby listening and provided frequent nods to approve the prayer. It was a quaint but gorgeous New Braunfels wedding and reception! I’m thankful to have been able to capture this part of the journey for this loving couple!
Here are a few of my favorite images from Maralee and Raleigh’s gorgeous wedding…
Until next time, be positive, happy, and healthy, and don’t forget to be photographed.
