Jackie and Bret finally had their day! Their wedding plans were derailed and put on hold an entire year like so many others in 2020! These two lovely people are from California and had their dream California meets Texas wedding at The Weinberg at Wixon Valley in College Station. The venue is breathtaking with its majestic barn, vineyards, and clear blue water surrounding the property. There was rain in the forecast and it rolled in and rolled right back out just in time for portraits and their ceremony. And, to make their day feel like home in California we had some late afternoon portrait time in the vineyard. Jackie had a second beautiful bridal look that we took advantage of. We were both obsessed with the back and that big incredible bow!
They met on a modern-day dating app and agreed to a day date in San Francisco. Jackie dropped pins to her cousin in Texas throughout the day to keep track of her just in case! But, they were inseparable from their very first date.
Bret proposed to Jackie at the Taj Mahal. When they had their first date on 6/4/2016, she told him that she would only say yes to a proposal if it were at the Taj Mahal. They laughed, Jackie said it was only half true! Way to go, Bret! They have since celebrated a monthiversary every month on the 4th since that first date. And, Bret proposed at the Taj Mahal on 11/4/19, their monthiversary.
Congratulations, Jackie and Bret! It was a joy to have a small part in your best day ever! Here are just a few of my many favorites from your wedding day!
Thank you, Jackie, for the BEST review!
“I found Amy about four months before our original wedding date by searching Texas wedding photographers on Instagram. The second I found her page, I knew she was the one. I absolutely loved her style and didn’t know what I was looking for in a photographer until I found her. Our wedding was postponed by a year because of COVID, but Amy remained excited and responsive the entire time. On the day of, she was a pro at helping me calm my nerves leading up to the ceremony, making sure I had water and a bite to eat. I’m not sure how she and Dan remained so calm throughout the day, I have always imagined it to be chaos behind the scenes. But, they are so great at what they do, and they produce absolute magic. Highly recommend Amy’s services for any of your photography needs!” – Jackie
