This lush woodland wedding comes to us from Tamytha Cameron Photography, based in Plano, Texas! Here’s Tamytha to tell us more:

Chelsea and Brandon are one of those couples that love each other with such effortlessness that they inspire everyone around them to want to find their own perfect match. Our goal was to capture that romance and that effortlessness in these images so that we could do them justice. The blue skies over Texas last October and the peaceful wooded setting made it so easy and everyone present was drawn in to the love between them. I think one of my favorite things about this wedding was the gorgeous lush florals is hues of deep red with the lovely red velvet ribbons by The Stalk Market.
