This Texas girl and Canadian guy went all the way to NY to meet on a film set.  So sweet!  I met these two a few months back for the first time when they came into town for their engagement session.  When they pulled up and got out of the car I had no idea they were professional models.  Needless to say I have had so much fun photographing them, not just because they are hot, but because their love

How did you choose your venue?

Vista West Ranch was a beautiful, romantic and intimate setting for our special day. The staff were incredible and truly helped make it a day to remember. The decor and theme was vintage & romantic and it was truly beautiful. We loved every minute of the experience. “

From the bride:  “The day of the ceremony, the Groom’s Canadian groomsmen got Texaned up in cowboy gear, one friend even went so far as to convincingly dress himself as a ranch hand. They found the classic outfits at a local thrift store. Mustaches soon followed and the laughter was endless. Canadians substituted there “EH’s” for ” Y’ALLS” and the Texans didn’t know what hit’em. “

I love me some home ranch weddings.  Nisa and her two siblings grew up in this house.  I can’t even begin to imagine growing up with so much land all around you to explore.

From the couple…..

How did you meet?

“We met in a construction trailer while working on a building project at the University of Texas at Austin. We both work at UT; Grant manages facilities for Liberal Arts and I work for Landmarks, the public art program on campus. Both of our jobs required attendance at a weekly construction meeting and I guess I quickly caught Grant’s attention amidst a sea of hard hats and construction dudes. Over the next several months he took any opportunity he could to talk to me and eventually it dawned on me that he was more than just an extra friendly guy. I asked him out on our first real date (with our dogs, at the dog park), and the rest is history!”

How did you choose your venue?

“We didn’t seriously consider any wedding venue other than my parents’ ranch. Grant proposed while we were hiking on the ranch and it just seemed like the ideal place for a wedding like the one we wanted: personal, casual, beautiful, and fun. My parents spent the short 5 months of our engagement sprucing the place up and making it even more wonderful than it’s always been. Pretty much everything about the wedding–from the welcome area to the hayride to the lights and dance floor was imagined and executed by my sweet parents. We had a very loose ‘Texas’ or ‘ranch’ theme with a classic Texas country-tonk band, bbq, and country/playbill fonts on our paper goods, which just seemed right, given the venue.”
