Shannon & Jay’s Wedding at The Nest at Ruth Farms

Shannon and Jay were married recently in Ponder at The Nest at Ruth Farms.  The white barn venue is spectacular and fits in with today’s trend of the light and airy wedding style.  Shannon’s dress was so beautiful and Jay wore a rare combination of black on black with his tux.  This is our second wedding for Shannon’s family.  We photographed her older sister’s wedding a few years back at Bass Hall in Fort Worth.  Andrew, our groom for that wedding, and now Shannon’s brother-in-law was now the officiant for Shannon and Jay’s wedding.

Our coverage featured a long list of important family photographs, which made the pre-wedding timeline very important.  We needed to be sure we worked with all of the parties requested by the bride and groom, while still leaving time to capture the pre-wedding moments.  The natural light flooding into the venue made it very easy for us to work quickly while giving us a beautiful quality of light to work in.

The ceremony was lovely and was highlighted by a very emotional reaction from Jay when he saw Shannon for the first time.  I think his reaction is the one every bride

wants from her groom.  We were able to capture photographs from the floor level, as well as the balcony, giving us two very different points of view and allowing us to see every moment clearly.

We took a few minutes with the couple between the ceremony and reception for a few portraits and then got them quickly to the party.  Craig with TriStar DJ was the master of ceremonies and he rocked it.  He also provided the uplights for the venue.  The night moved quickly and after the ceremonial cake cutting, garter and bouquet toss, and a few dances, we were planning for a sparkler exit.

A classic Ford Fairlane made for an awesome getaway car.
