The Villas in Tyler, Texas are a piece of Europe placed right here in the USA. Concrete buildings and features surrounded by clean cut gardens and greens lined with columnar trees create an elegant wedding estate that fit Reagan + Coltons vibe to a “T”. Her bridesmaids wore black, her accents were diamonds and pearls, and their love for each other was apparent. This elegant day had me dreaming of what would be my own wedding one day — one of those weddings you go to Pinterest to learn everything about so you can pull ideas and visions from it.
I was honored I was the one capturing it.
The ceremony took place at Reagan’s church she grew up in — tall ceilings, stained glass, and floors that creaked when you shifted your weight. (Hence why all the photos during this portion seem to be from the same two places.. one where I was positioned and the other where my second shooter was positioned.)
The party came after. They say live bands can change a reception and take it to a new level… and let me just tell you, Royal Dukes Band did not disappoint. This dance floor was packed.
This day was a dream, and I am so proud of these images. I hope you like them too.
