Vanessa and Taylor’s Wedding at the White Sparrow

The White Sparrow
Quinlan, Texas

Vanessa and Taylor were one of my first weddings of 2019 and I can’t think of a better way to start the year than celebrating two good friends! It’s always a joy photographing marriages, but it’s even more rewarding when they’re two of your best friends! It’s been a privilege getting to know these two the past few years which made their wedding day all the more special. I’ve learned when photographing friends that I have a much harder time narrowing down the photos and I apologize in advance for the extra-long blog post!

Vanessa and Taylor are two of the most genuine, dedicated friends and it was obvious by all the people that were there to support them on their day! They were surrounded by so many loved ones and I know everyone was thrilled for these two to finally be tying the knot! Even the weather was in their favor because we had wonderful sunshine and warmth all throughout their January wedding day.

Vanessa worked as a wedding coordinator this past summer so I wasn’t surprised that she had so many beautiful details to photograph! The black bridesmaid dresses were so unique and classy and paired perfectly with their beautiful pink and red flowers. In the spirit of Valentine’s week, this wedding is a perfect fit for the blog today!

Enjoy some of my favorites from Vanessa and Taylor’s day and a huge congratulations to the new Mr. and Mrs. Birkner!!
