The Gardens

I am sure you have heard me say this a time or two about a bride, but to know Emma is to love Emma. She is hilarious, beautiful, and the sweetest ray of sunshine on the planet. My favorite thing about Emma is how animated she is. I just love her to pieces.
Emma brought her sister and maid-of-honor Ruth, along with her mom to her bridal session at the River Oaks Garden Club. I think we all gasped once she stepped out in her beautiful wedding gown. The dress was perfect for Emma. I love how simple the front is and then a gorgeous accent bow in the back. It was stunning. 

The Azalea Trail

We started the session under the beautiful green arches at the River Oaks Garden Club. The arches create such a classic garden feel and right in the center of Houston. If you visit during March, the Gardens are apart of the Azalea Trail, which is always a lovely event. Emma is so elegant, so I knew this would be the perfect space for her. We moved the side of the building where there is a wall of white paned windows. Emma’s mom made the comment that the windows reminded her of their patio. I love that while we were not at their family home, a piece of her bridal session will provoke a thought of home. 
Which brings me to my final thought, if you’re on the fence about bridals, just go for it. I say this because Emma and Michael’s wedding day was filled with good luck aka rain. Had we not done bridals in advance, we would have been in a bit of a pickle to find the time to do outdoor portraits! Plus, you get an extra day to wear the most beautiful gown and play with the prettiest flowers!
