Mandy and Adam Rinald (at K-Oaks Clubhouse)

Early this month, just two days before my family and I officially put ourselves on lockdown, I was lucky enough to capture a spring wedding full of beautiful florals and wonderful people. And now I'm lucky enough to share the photos as well!

What made this wedding even sweeter was that it was at a venue that's about a ten minute drive from my house. Living out in Lago Vista, that's something that is quite rare! It was a great day, a little humid, but no rain. Much like the weather we're having now.

K-Oaks Clubhouse here in Lago Vista is a great place to get married. There are options for both indoor and outdoor ceremonies, and there's a stage AND dance floor already there. Not to mention that there's almost always greenery out in the back that makes for some stunning photos.

One of my favorite parts of this wedding was during the speeches, Mandy and Adams young son was sitting at a table with some family and friends singing Old McDonald Had A Farm. It was the cutest darn thing. Really, both of their kids were an absolute dream! You couldn't help but just smile around their family.

My other favorite part was the couples photos. We wound up doing them right before their exit. The love and connection that Mandy and Adam have was so beautiful to watch.

This is why weddings are one of my absolute favorite things to photograph. I'm a broken record, ya'll, I know, but it's SUCH an emotional day for not only the people getting married but for family and friends as well. It's a privilege to be able to capture that raw emotion and connection between people. It's just my favorite thing.

Especially in times like these where it feels like Groundhogs Day, looking back at the photos from this last beautiful spring wedding gives me so much hope. It was before things really hit the fan, and I'm so grateful for this experience.

Watching Mandy get ready with her mom and mother in law, watching Adams face as she walked down the aisle, and watching everyone just bask in their joy for them during the speeches. Those human moments of connectivity and pure joy are what I'm looking forward to most when we're all back in the world.

Just, still, with more hand washing.
