Brooke and Chase were married this fall at The Springs Event Center in Terrell. Their Poetry Springs wedding was planned for over a year and most of the decor elements were items that Brooke and her mom found at flea markets, etc. Brooke and Chase chose purple, gold, and blush for their wedding colors. The style was a combination of vintage, found in the details like the antique bike they used to direct people to the ceremony location, and glam, with mason jars coated with gold glitter for the candles they used on the reception tables.
Although I’ve shot at several of The Springs wedding venues, this was my first time shooting a Poetry Springs wedding. I have to admit, it’s probably my favorite location of all The Springs venues so far. It’s very remote, and the ceremony site is surrounded with lush greenery. The light right before the ceremony was absolute perfection for their photos!
I first met Brooke a few years ago when I shot her sister’s wedding. When Brooke reached out to me, I was not only thrilled, but honored to be trusted with another family wedding. I even remember Brooke grabbing my arm at her sister’s wedding to tell me that when it was time for her and Chase to get married, that I would hear from her.
Chase and Brooke have been together since high school, and remained together even after Chase went away to college. There is a great rapport between Brooke and Chase. He has a great skill for teasing Brooke and making her laugh over really silly things. I loved seeing the relationship between the two of them, and the way their friends and family support their relationship and their marriage.
I’ve always loved Betsey Johnson’s sense of style, all the way back in the days when her designed were used for for Sex and The City. But these wedding shoes that Brooke wore— they were exquisite! They had just the right balance of delicate glam
