Meredith and Richard Married

Brownstone Reserve
A Rainy Wedding Day

Bryan, Texas

With all the rain we’ve had lately (and the rain that’s to come thanks to Hurricane Harvey), I’m taken back to Meredith and Richard’s wedding day! When I arrived at Brownstone, it was bright and sunny outdoors and the bridal suite was flooded with natural light. What a deception because just moments after I made a comment of what a beautiful day it was, the sky grew dark and all of a sudden there was a huge downpour of windy rain that didn’t let up until the reception! Throughout the major weather shift, Meredith remained calm and excited – she didn’t let it ruin the joy of her wedding day one bit. Meredith and Richard had planned for their ceremony to take place at Christ United Methodist Church in College Station, so we moved all the portraits to take place indoors as well. Thankfully, the rain let up a tad during their reception so we were able to sneak Meredith and Richard outside for a few more portraits of the two of them later that evening.

During their reception, Meredith and Richard shared a romantic first dance as Mr. and Mrs. to the song “The Way You Look Tonight.” You may remember from their engagement session, but this was also the song they danced to on their first date and the song that Richard played during their proposal! From surprise speeches to fun dancing, their reception was a blast! You know you’ve got great friends when their willing to get out on the dance floor to perform a singing duet of customized Disney tunes just for you! Meredith and Richard are truly loved and that was very apparent on their day by the energy and excitement of their friends. Congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Cochrane and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your beautiful day!

The sweetest daddy-daughter first look!

There was a short stop in the rain during the reception so we were able to sneek Meredith and Richard out for a few portraits before the sun went down!

Back inside to cut the cake!

You know you’re loved when your friends break out into song and dance in front of hundreds of people just for you!
