Nutcracker Wedding | My Heart is Yours | Ross + Melissa

Ross + Melissa’s wedding at the Nutcracker Country Estate was filled with everything lovely; delicate flower arrangements, soft lace, sentimental family heirlooms, baby laughs, tiny pink cheeks filled with big bites of apple, happy tears and happy moments. We spent a perfect day with the two families and enjoyed taking in every little detail.

We took the long dusty road up to the venue that morning, not knowing what the weather will do and not knowing how the day will treat us, but full of hope and excitement as we started on our way. It was our first time shooting video next to our photography and while this add-on was simple, the experience was new to us. The breeze was cooling and the new leafs on the pecan nut trees were just starting to show. A new day, a new chapter, for us and for Ross and Melissa.

Ross and Melissa, thank you for making us a part of your day and for allowing us to help shape your memories of special time like this. We are so blessed and we know that your walk from here on will be just as fruitful. Listening to the troubles you’ve faced and the ways that you have overcome them have inspired us and we wish you every bit of joy and love in the future!

Lots of love, Ilse and Sean | GingerAle
