Abigail & Jake | A Rainy but Beautiful Day at Lake Tyler Petroleum Club
Abigail and Jake celebrated their gorgeous wedding at the Lake Tyler Petroleum Club, Texas. It was an honor to capture this magical day and hang out with this super cool couple. It was a truly magical day and although it was raining, nothing could stop the sheer joy and happiness of the day.
Abigail was a gorgeous bride. She wore a stunning, mermaid style and off-the-shoulder dress, complete with a beautiful heart-shaped necklace that her Mother helped to fasten. Abigail and her bridesmaids had a lot of fun whilst preparing for the big day ahead. The bridesmaids wore white dresses which matched wonderfully with the bride. Each dress was floor-length and had a similar off-the-shoulder style to Abigail's wedding gown. The ladies had a lot of fun getting ready in their matching robes.
We then caught up with Jake and his groomsmen, who wore stunning, dark gray suits finished with black bow ties. We captured some fantastic shots of the guys by the docks of the venue, some of which were fun and silly, showing the playful friendships between them all. This even included a shot of the guys with a 'freshly' caught fish from the lake!
The whole wedding took place at the Lake Tyler Petroleum Club. It was a wonderful venue for a perfect day. Before the ceremony, we caught a first look moment between Abigail and her Father. He shed a few tears at the sight of his beautiful daughter.
The dock was the perfect location to capture the most amazing photographs. Abigail looked radiant as she posed in front of the still, calm water. We captured a wonderful selection of family portraits too. Abigail and her family shared a moment of prayer before heading into the ceremony. It was a heartwarming moment.
Jake looked emotional and elated to see his stunning bride walking down the altar towards him. Abigail's Father gave her away, before the wonderful vows and 'I do's' were lovingly exchanged. They stood in front of a stunning wooden arch, that was decorated with red and white flowers and long, flowing fabric which blew beautifully in the wind. The happy couple made their way back down the aisle as husband and wife, to celebrate their marriage with friends and family at the reception and start their lives as a married couple. Not before capturing more stunning shots by the lake, of course! It was a truly magical setting. As the night drew in, Abigail and Jake stood by the water and allowed us to capture the most gorgeous portraits. They were real troupers getting the shots in the bad weather, which turned out beautifully.
The happy couple headed inside and were warmly welcomed by friends and family, ready to celebrate into the night. The venue was decorated beautifully, and everyone had a cute pine cone place setting. Each and every one of the guests were overjoyed and had a blast throughout the whole reception. The speeches were hilarious, and the dancing didn't stop until the very end of the night. Before the night ended, the guests were treated to an amazing fireworks display, to round of what was a perfect day. The fireworks went off over the lake, revealing amazing colors and bursts of light.
Abigail and Jake shared a private last dance after fireworks. Friends and family sent them on their way through a sea of sparklers, and the happy couple shared a kiss in the middle of it all. As they were heading off, they realised they had forgotten to sign the marriage licence! This was all sorted quickly and just showed what a fun, magical day they had. They signed the licenses to finish off what had a been a perfect day and headed off as husband and wife.
Congratulations to Abigail and Jake. You had an incredibly beautiful wedding I was so pleased to be a part of it. I couldn't have asked for a lovelier couple, and I wish you all the best for the future.
