Briana & Richard looked like they stepped out of a magazine ad. If you were at this wedding you might be tempted to think it was a proper photoshoot with all of the beautiful people, the amazing sunset and stunning style. The best part is that this couple, their friends and family are as beautiful on the inside as they are on the outside.
Wide open skies, flowing veils, free spirited bride and rolling hills. Perfect combination for gorgeous bridals in West Texas.
Where do I even begin with this lovefest of a wedding? I mean, you should've been there... This bohemian styled wedding was absolutely beautiful and loving. During the ceremony, one of their family members read A Lovely Love Story by Edward Monkton and it's the sweetest way to tell this wedding story (aside from all the fun film photographs!)
A Lovely Love Story
The fierce Dinosaur was trapped inside his cage of ice.
Although it was cold he was happy in there. It was, after all, his cage.
Then along came the Lovely Other Dinosaur.
The Lovely Other Dinosaur melted the Dinosaur's cage with kind words and loving thoughts.
"I like this Dinosaur" thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur.
"Although he is fierce he is also tender and he is funny.
He is also quite clever though I will not tell him this for now."
"I like this Lovely Other Dinosaur", thought the Dinosaur.
"She is beautiful and she is different and she smells so nice.
She is also a free spirit which is a quality I much admire in a dinosaur."
"But he can be so distant and so peculiar at times," thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur.
"He is also overly fond of things.
Are all Dinosaurs so overly fond of things?"
"But her mind skips from here to there so quickly thought the Dinosaur.
She is also uncommonly keen on shopping.
Are all Lovely Other Dinosaurs so uncommonly keen on shopping?"
"I will forgive his peculiarity and his concern for things", thought the Lovely Other Dinosaur.
"For they are part of what makes him a richly charactered individual."
"I will forgive her skipping mind and her fondness for shopping," thought the Dinosaur.
"For she fills our life with beautiful thoughts and wonderful surprises.
Besides, I am not unkeen on shopping either."
Now the Dinosaur and the Lovely Other Dinosaur are old.
Look at them.
Together they stand on the hill telling each other stories and feeling the warmth of the sun on their backs.
And that, my friends, is how it is with love.
Let us all be Dinosaurs and Lovely Other Dinosaurs together.
For the sun is warm.
FDLove has to be one of my favorite local publications. The selection and style of the magazine is slightly more avant garde than the others I've found! So you can imagine how incredibly humbled I was to have Jessica & Nima's beautiful wedding selected for their Fall/Winter 2015 Edition! The spread two page spread was incredible and they also used Jessica & Nima's lovely faces for their Table of Contents. Grab a copy if you get a chance!
