Lakeside Chic Wedding From Ryan Ray Photography

A simple and elegant Lakeside wedding from one of our favorite The Hand-Picked Vendors wedding vendors Ryan Ray. He is the most charming Texas photographer and we just adore him. Enough gushing, let’s get back to the wedding, it has all the glamour & style of a big city wedding with the quaintness & comfort of the the piney woods of East Texas.

A few snippets that we would like to share are that the bridal party was encouraged to wear their own choice of shoes and statement jewelry so that they could feel unique and comfortable, and the typical bouquets were swapped for custom over-sized clutches, each adorned with a feather brooch. Be sure to see the entire gallery by clicking here.

    Pronovias, Dreams Collection “Formentera” dress. The designer’s website photo is shown with a trumpet petticoat- but this particular version was worn without a petticoat, a sweeheart neckline was created, and an embellished belt was added. It’s also incredibly detailed with embroidery and crystals which is stunning! :)
