barn reception

russell + jaclyn • wedding • cotton creek barn


I can't wait to tell you about how excited I was to shoot at Cotton Creek Barn for the first time. It's a new-ish venue to the Lubbock area, located in New Home, TX. 

I also can't wait to show you all the beautiful things I got to photograph while I was there- gorgeous dresses, florals, and special details...

But first, I have to tell you about what I will remember most about this wedding. A number of times- all separately- friends and family members mentioned to me how excited they were that Jaclyn would have Russell and that Russell would have Jaclyn. They told me how deserving they were of each others' love and faithfulness with an attitude of pure excitement and joy for these two. It was amazing- and a total consensus- that this wedding was meant to be. That, my friends, is what a wedding really is.

In West Texas fashion, the wind blew hard that day- but subsided as the sun went down. I was thankful to have clients who truly knew the importance of what we were capturing that day- not a perfect hairstyle, but a perfect celebration!

I am sure I narrowed my images down more than once- but had so many favorites to share with you! Enjoy!
