These two met when Jacob asked Honorée out over the phone without ever having met her in person! She was helping him with an insurance claim after a car accident and he thought she was awesome and sounded beautiful (and she is!). She agreed to meet up with him at a coffee shop, and they’ve been together ever since. When they learned that their first child was on the way, they got married, but now it was time to make it official with their friends and family at the beautiful Driskill Hotel! Their daughter Harper was born last year and she looked absolutely scrumptious in her little pink dress and shoes at the wedding. In lieu of an engagement session, we did a family session at the Arboretum! Everyone loves Harper. She is a doll!
The ceremony was my favorite kind – personalized, heartfelt, mentions of soul mates, laughter and tears. They both beautifully wrote their own vows and it made my eyes sweaty too! I loved the moment where Honorée and Jacob couldn’t help but kiss even though it wasn’t “time”. Harper also added some input to the ceremony with her adorable vocalizations, which caused a lot of smiles and laughs. Both their families were such good, lovely people (and absolutely stinking hilarious) and I enjoyed seeing the family dynamics unfold as the night wore on. The toasts were legendary, the food was phenomenal, and their wedding band knew how to keep the party going.
Honorée and Jacob have huge hearts and smiles and could play with and joke with me, which is kind of a must for ixi clients 🙂 I hope I will see these three fantastic people in front of my lens again year after year!

Honorée’s dress is one of the most unique dresses I’ve photographed. The gray! Oh it looked SO beautiful on her and the silhouette of the dress could not have been more perfect for her beautiful figure. You’re not going to find a dress like this at a chain, but luckily Second Summer Bride had it! Harper’s outfit was found on Etsy! I loooove her smile!
Jacob’s dad told HIS version of how Honorée and Jacob met – it was just *slightly* exaggerated 🙂Jacob’s brother was a total character. Absolutely hilarious.
