Abby & Ethan
Dusty Blue Southern Charm – College Station, Texas
Waiting for these two to get engaged was the understatement of the years, I mean year… These two sweethearts have been together for as long as I can remember. Ethan asked Abby to be his wife at Purgatory Ski Resort in Colorado last year. I knew when I saw the engagement pictures on facebook I wanted to shoot their wedding. I still feel so honored they asked me out of all the photographers in Texas.
Abby and Ethan enjoy being outside together, so when they mentioned an outdoor ceremony I wasn’t surprised. Peach Creek Ranch is important to them because they had a part in its construction and know the owners personally. Ethan is my cousin so I knew about this venue before it was even built. I got to watch it’s progress on social media and I was so excited. I’ve always said that College Station needed more Wedding Venues. Not only did they get one, they got the best one. I love Peach Creek Ranch so much and I look forward to coming back.
When I got to the venue it felt so good outside. It was supposed to rain the day of the wedding and but we got lucky because it was sunny and seventy-five. Also this was the week before all COVID-19 heck broke loose in Texas and large groups of people were not allowed.
When I met with Abby to get her details she looked so pretty and I noticed how relaxed she was, which is all I ever want for my brides. She mentioned Ethan picked out her jewelry. I thought that was so sweet and different. Ethan did a great job, I was honestly surprised. He has good taste!
Abby and Ethan are a private couple, so when they show affection it’s really special. When they had their first look, it was precious and sentimental the way a first look should be. The entire day was filled with moments like this and I’m so glad I get to share it with y’all. Enjoy!

If there is one thing you must know about Abby and Ethan it’s that they LOVE their dog Beau!
Ethan got his groomsmen Jack Daniel’s Whisky from the distillery in Lynchburg, Tennessee.

Abby’s mom helped her get ready and after that she had THREE first looks!
Meet Hallie! Abby’s Best Friend and Maid of Honor. Unfortunately Hallie had to miss a few dress appointments, so she got too see it the day of and it was so special.
Hallie put part of her dress on Abby’s Bouquet AND a charm Abby gifted her on her 16th birthday that she kept for 10 years. Try holding in tears after hearing that!
