Elena and I are so happy that we got to be a part of the Schmoody wedding!!! Ashley and John are such great people with such great friends and family. John told some of his family that as soon as I opened the door at our home for the wedding consultation, he knew that Smith Photography was the right choice to take their wedding pictures. Well, Elena and I can say the same thing. From the first hello, we saw how friendly and sweet Ashley and John are and we knew that we wanted to be their wedding photographers.
Ashley and the girls got ready at a local hotel and then headed over to Texas Old Town. We hadn't been in Tejas Hall in a long time. This is Texas Old Town's largest hall. It has tons of room and the guests don't feel crowded at all. Also, the ceremony site behind the hall is beautiful. It is surrounded by trees and made the perfect setting for Ashley and John's wedding.
Ashley's hair looked fantastic! Elena immediately said that she wanted to have as many pictures of Ashley's hair as possible. And, when we saw Ashley's dress, we were in love!!! It was beautiful and original and looked so great on Ashley. John looked very sharp in his suit, too. Once everyone was dressed, we headed outside with John and Ashley for their first look. Elena and I LOVE a great first look! It is always fun to watch the bride and groom see each other for the first time on their wedding day and see the joy and excitement on their faces. After their first look, we had plenty of time for family pictures and wedding party pictures.
The ceremony was beautiful and then the party started! Friends and family danced with John and Ashley all night. It was a wonderful celebration. Ashley and John, thank you for being so kind to Elena and I. Thank you for letting us share in your day! Congratulations again!
