Irene and Ricky Are Married!

After meeting months ago on what felt like a freezing cold day, we finally got to photograph Irene and Ricky as they got ready and got married!  The day was really filled with emotions, but more than anything we could feel their excitement and happiness…..

I loved the look of awe on Irene’s Dad and Grandma’s faces as Irene came out of the bedroom….

Seeing such a loving father and sweet daughter had us tearing up!

After getting ready near The Woodlands Waterway, it was off to get married!  Irene’s Dad did a great job of sneaking her in undetected! ( ;

When it came time for Ricky’s bride to walk down the isle and become his bride, well, his reaction was beyond genuine….

Life goes by so fast and relationships are often taken for granted.  Ricky, thank you for reminding us how special love truly is!

Even though some of Irene’s family could not make it from Ecuador, they were able to witness the entire ceremony and the celebrations that followed thanks to modern technology!..

While family and friends mingled, snacked, and listened to music, we snuck the wedding party outside during the perfect time of evening for some dreamy sunset photos!  Totally worth braving the summer heat for!

Everyone in Ricky’s family was sssoooo thoughtful!  One of Ricky’s brother’s even requested a photo of the four Barth boys lined-up, just like their Grandmother use to take of them!

After some fun with the group we stole the newlyweds away for a few extra minutes of photos alone.  I’ll say it again, dreamy!!!

After drooling over the dessert table and meeting some wonderful people, the sunny dinner room was opened – talk about a wonderful surprise!
