The process almost seemed too simple. I always heard of people being stressed out during wedding planning but I can 100% say I was not stressed at all thanks to the staff at Galway Downs by Wedgewood Weddings. Shout out to Diana who truly kept me sane and was the best coordinator we could ever ask for.”

Jensen and Reid chose the amazing and talented, Leah Marie, to photograph their very special wedding day. Leah is a joy to work with, and she did such a beautiful job of capturing the raw emotion and stunning decor of this timeless wedding celebration.
“Such a beautiful day all around! Jensen did a first look with her bridesmaids, which was perfect!! It was so great seeing the girls genuinely excited and happy for their friend! Next we did a first look with her dad, which may have been my favorite part of that day! Her dad's reaction was priceless! He was sincerely blown away, so sweet! Jensen and Reid did not see each other before the ceremony, so it was so fun to capture Reid as he saw his bride for the first time walking down the aisle! These two were a breeze to photograph, as they gushed and stole sweet glances at each other the whole time! Their giant smiles were definitely contagious, and we found ourselves smiling right along with them!”

Reid's tailored wedding style was the perfect match to his beautiful bride. He sported a deep navy tuxedo accented with a velvet paisley tie and brown leather accessories. The groomsmen sported near-identical navy suits with brown leather accents. The monochromatic look is both modern and traditional and paired perfectly with the wedding day decor.

the wedding ceremony
The lovely couple chose one of our favorite wedding ceremony sites at Galway Downs to exchange their heartfelt vows. Classic wood folding chairs were placed on both sides of a rose petal lined wedding aisle, perfectly situated to watch the couple say 'I do'. The rustic wood arbor was adorned with a beautiful flowing silk fabric in cream, and accented with a lavish arrangement of greenery with pink and white roses. The glimmering lake of Galway Downs and the age-old oak tree made for a stunning backdrop for the event. It was truly beautiful!

“Jensen and Reid were so cute and looked in LOVE. They we very open and we got along very well. I loved Jensen's wedding dress - it was totally different than I've seen in a long time. I even Facetimed the bride on the morning of her wedding to make sure she liked everything and to let her know to have a great day. I especially loved that they decorated the wood wall at Galway Downs! I wish more people did this because there are so many ways to use it: either desert wall or photo booth and accent decor for the couch and seating area.”

“Jensen and Reid were such a fun couple to work with and were very complimentary. Just a couple weeks ago, I received a text form Jensen with nine gorgeous pictures of her cake and dessert bar saying ‘we still can’t get over how amazing our cake and dessert table was - so incredible!’ Not many brides take the time to write me after the wedding. This shows how nice and thoughtful they are.”
