Kristen and Jimmy // Willow Creek Ranch in Arp, TX

It was a beautiful sunny May day for the Newland wedding. The love between these two radiated with every fiber of their being. They had so much delight about finally being married.

Kristen & Jimmy opted to not see each other before their wedding, so instead Kristen did a first look with her step dad. It was a sweet moment together. Jimmy’s mama beamed with pride as she stood by her son and grinned. The flower girl and ring bearer, cousins of the bride, were such an adorable addition to their wedding party. The couple was married outside as benches lined the aisle. Twinkle lights glowed and a fountain could be heard in the background. After pronounced husband & wife, we snuck away for some couple portraits while guests enjoyed Chuy’s. Kristen and Jimmy entered their reception with big smiles. They had custom cups made that shared their love of fishing together.  They incorporated fishing into their engagement session as well and I loved it. 

After their special dances, guests filled the dance floor and danced the night away. Everyone was truly having the best time together. The couple opted for a last dance which was really special. I loved the moments we captured for them before they left their wedding. 

A word of thanks: 

Kristen + Jimmy, Thank you for the immense honor of documenting your big day! I smiled right along with you both. It was a joy to see how in love y’all are. Hang on to that love always. Cheering you both on and wishing you all the happiness in the world, Emilee
