Frances & Ryan’s Wedding Day | The Woodlands Resort & Conference Center | Houston, TX Wedding Photographer

Soooooo, I was going to try to explain how amazing these two really are together and how special their love is for each other but instead of doing it absolutely no justice I have decided to let the bride herself explain their love story…

“Ryan and I have had a long history. We grew up in the same neighborhood and went to the same elementary school. We cannot remember when we actually met, but our first class together was in junior high. We became best friends in high school, but fell in love in college at the University of Texas. We had been dating for a couple of years by the time senior year had come around. We were both great students interviewing for graduate schools and jobs in the fall of our senior year. Our hard work proved to be worthwhile because we were both able to pursue our dreams, but it was bittersweet since we committed to cities across the country from each other. Ryan was to be a process engineer nearby his dream city, San Francisco, and I was going to be a student in a doctoral pharmacy program. Being in a long distance relationship, which lasted four years, was one of the best and challenging experiences for the both of us. We learned how to be independent and how to communicate better.” – Frances

Who says long distance relationships don’t work??…No one who knows these two!!

It was very evident on the wedding day how much love Frances and Ryan have for each other and how much their friends and family love them together!!

Frances & Ryan ~ thank you for letting me witness your amazing bond in person and capture your wonderful wedding day! Best wishes on your life together in California!! I know you two must be over the moon about finally being “together”!!

Can I just say…Frances is not even in her gown yet and look how gorgeous she looks in just her white robe and veil….

Frances looked absolutely stunning in her San Patrick “Clamor” gown!!

The cake topper is the same cake topper used for Ryan’s Great-Grandparent’s wedding day…

I have never seen a “Cake Pull” at a wedding…each bridesmaid pulled a charm, each with a different symbolic meaning.

I stepped outside to shoot an evening shot of The Woodlands Resort (above) and took a quick peek in at the wedding and captured this moment of sisterly love (below)…touching up the lip gloss…

Mid-way through the wedding reception, the Bride, Groom and their families took part in a traditional Vietnamese Tea Ceremony…

Back to some dancin’…

Wow…wonder what they are all taking pictures of??!!………

Ryan….RAPPING!!! It was AWESOME!!

Congratulations to Ryan & Frances!!!!
