On a gorgeous March day at a very special venue, Christina and Travis were married! Briscoe Manor is a lovely private estate located located just outside the Houston hustle-and-bustle, in Katy. It’s a very special place to us because that’s where WE got married! When we first met Christina and Travis and heard about their wedding day plans, we were so so excited to get back to Briscoe and photograph there!A fun fact: The Briscoe Manor crew owns their own herd of Texas Longhorns. As you drive down the driveway to Briscoe, these majestic symbols of our proud state roam on both sides of the road.
One of our favorite things that we liked about Briscoe Manor when we chose to get married there was the fun grooms room. So often people focus on the bridal suite (which is important,too) but the grooms room should be fun too! The guys were having a blast hanging out before they had to walk down the aisle.Travis was all smiles for this big day!Christina and Travis chose to do a ‘first sight’ for their wedding day, meaning they saw one another before the wedding. We love this because it allows us to get sooo many great photos of them before the ceremony, and not be rushed for time to get to the reception! The first sight was their idea and we are so thankful they valued photography so much to plan their timeline around when they could get the most pictures! How excited does Travis look to see his bride?!Happy men!What a gorgeous and fun bridal party they had! Everyone had such a great sense of humor! They all spent all their time before the wedding cutting up and laughing.As the sun started to descend, the guests gathered outside at Balke’s Lakeside, Briscoe’s outdoor ceremony location. It was decorated beautifully for the event!While the guests gathered, there were some last minute preparations going on with the bridesmaids….….and some sentimental moments with the bride and her mother. Ah….. tear.“It’s time to go!”The sunset was perfectly timed for the ceremony!They had a great service, filled with laughs! Love their preacher’s face!
After the ceremony, the guests spent some time in the courtyard for cocktail hour and hand-passed appetizers.
During that time, it gave us even MORE opportunities for bride-and-groom photos as the sun went down!
This is the mother and father of the bride, giving a beautiful toast with pointers for a long and happy life together. It was such a touching moment!The father daughter dance was awesome! It started out just like any other father daughter dance… but then…These guys started to bust a move! And then the rest of the guests followed their lead and danced the night away, too!
Christina and Travis, you had such an awesome wedding! We’re so glad that you invited us to be there for your big day! You were a joy to work with throughout this process and we know you’ll have a long and happy life together!
