Jeni ~ bridals, Hidden River Ranch Wedding

Every bridal session that I am blessed to capture takes my breath away.  There is just something about the mix of nervous excitement, beauty and lace, baubles and glitter, the simple and the decadent!

Jeni was the absolute essence of bridal beauty!  Not only did I get the joy of photographing this stunning young lady but we got to shoot at a brand new venue called Hidden River Ranch!  Her wedding is tonight (the second wedding EVER here) and this will be posted as soon as I get a chance (after ceremony of course, lol!).

Is she GORGEOUS or what?!?!  I'm so glad I got to spend this much time capturing her bridal beauty before her special day.  She got to have a fab run through with hair and makeup by Rouchelle at Beautiful Reflections, which makes for much less stress the day of and we got to do all kinds of super fun things all over the ranch.

I can't wait to share wedding photos with you!!!!!

Amazing new Hill Country Wedding Venue ~ Hidden River Ranch, Lampasas, Texas

I don't know how many of you are aware of an amazing new venue that has just opened a few miles north of Burnet called Hidden River Ranch, but it did, and I'm thrilled!  I was super blessed to capture the most beautiful bride here just a few weeks ago for her bridal portraits.  I can't wait to share those with you this Saturday night!  We will be shooting the venue's second wedding and we are so excited!   I can't wait to capture my bride in the bridal room, on the stairs, she and her groom on the dance floor, in the Juliette tower, by the pond......  OMGoodess!

The sweet hubs and I attended the GRAND opening/open house today and it's even more stunning than when I visited a few weeks ago.  Taylor and Lauren have worked so hard to make this dream a reality!  So many fabulous vendors.  Lots of yummy taste testing and beautiful decor.  If you'd like a full list of vendors, you can contact Hidden River Ranch, but some of my favs that I've had the blessing of working with are...

Beautiful Reflections (hair and makeup)
Sister Events (event coordinators)
Picture Perfect Events (event coordinators and florist)
and EY Events will be handling the wedding on Saturday!

Check them out when you get a chance and keep your eyes peeled for the Hammonds/Savage wedding coming soon!!!

His Promise: for a Hill Country Photographer

Sometimes I find myself slipping into that "wondering" phase of life.  Not so much in the joyful, awe-inspiring part but more like the continual concerning part.  The part that nags you and worries you and makes you wonder what it's all for anyway.  I know, I'm not the only one, I hope not at least!

I was shopping around at our local Ross the other day (my new FAV store... it's a small town, give me a break, haha!) and started peeking at the journals and planners.  I have a LOVE/HATE relationship with journals and planners.  I LOVE how adorable they are (I purchase way too many) and I HATE the fact that I am so bad about journaling and that planners make me always see how tight (or empty) my schedule is.  And if I'm being totally truthful, the really awesome planners, the ones that have daily goals and lists and devotions and all that cool stuff.... those just remind me how miserably unorganized I am.

Well, while at Ross, I realized it's that time of year where I need to get a new planner so I can start logging weddings, etc. for 2018.  While I was poking through them, I found this one and fell in LOVE with it (the price of only $3 was a bonus too)!  Now my planner isn't just a reminder of a busy (or sometimes not so busy) schedule but it's a daily reminder that HE has a bigger plan for me than I can write for myself.  My job, is to love Him with all my heart, love others more than I love myself and follow His lead.  Letting the rest fall into place.

Here's to starting a new planner (and year) with Jesus taking the lead, and to Jeremiah's reminder.... 

Hmmm, even a planner can be a simple blessing of peace and joy.
