Beaumont Weddings | Krystal and Ross – Part Un

Earlier in April I had the privilege of photographing Krystal and Ross’ wedding day – everything about the day, from the weather to the reception details to the events leading up to the ceremony were perfect. πŸ™‚

Here is their story:

The day began with getting ready in the bridal suites of the MCM Elegante` here in Beaumont:

Krystal’s ring and pearls lay waiting their duties, I love pearls πŸ™‚

We begin the official ‘getting ready’ with Krystal in the salon chair, having her curls and flower coifed together:

Shoes! Red shoes!

Here Ross is opening one of his presents Krystal gifted him for the day – personalized Converses! πŸ˜€

Krystal’s ladies in waiting assist her with getting her netted veil just right:

It always amazes me in the difference in preparation that goes into the day for the groom and the bride. Here Ross slipped his tux and shirt on and is now checking out his accoutrements in the mirror:

Meanwhile, Krystal has been getting ready all morning and into the afternoon – finally comes the time where she can step into her dress:

… and at the same time, Ross is now ready and filling his extra time with video games:

A little more finishing touches:

Ross is ready to go, one last touchup himself:

Both are just about ready to go, the difference this time is that they’re not automatically heading to the ceremony site.

This time Ross and Krystal have decided to see each other before the ceremony – a “first look”. A “First Look” is a chance for you and your fiance to see each other in a beautiful, private setting before the ceremony. This not only gives you the opportunity to “reveal” yourselves without the stress of a thousand eyes watching you and a hundred camera flashes, but it also gives us more time to create romantic portraits (as well as the fun, artistic wedding party photos) before the ceremony so that you can get to the reception more quickly afterwards. It helps the day go much more smoothly as far as nerves go. πŸ™‚

Our next installment will have the two lovers meeting each other, beautiful romantic portraits afterwards and the party that followed. See you then! πŸ™‚
