It’s difficult to pick all of my favorite moments from Lexi and Douglas’ wedding at Memory Lane Event Center.
First of all, there was no shortage of tears. Lexi and her mom’s heartfelt exchange while Lexi put on the finishing touches in the gorgeous dressing room. Lexi’s emotional first look with all of her bridesmaids and her stepdad — there was not a dry eye in the room! Lexi and Douglas’ tearful exchange of vows and unity sand ceremony.
I particularly felt emotional during the traditional first dances. Douglas’ family resides in Virginia and could not attend their wedding. Because his mom couldn’t attend, he danced with Lexi’s mom. It was a beautiful symbol of the way Lexi’s family has become his own since he moved to Texas. Family is so clearly very important to the two of them — when Douglas proposed it was actually in front of all of Lexi’s family.
The Leonard’s reception is hands-down one of the most fun receptions I’ve photographed. They had so much out on the dance floor, whether it be doing line dances or participating in a soul train. There was so much fun and joy in the room — such a perfect way to end an emotional wedding day. We finished off the wedding day with a breathtaking sparkler exit.
