July 4th Wedding at The Allen Farmhaus | New Braunfels, TX | Ashley & Clay


Ashley and Clay

When I spoke with Ashley over the phone this girl stole my heart! I know for sure we got off topic about photography and talked about her wedding and life than anything else. This pretty lady is beautiful inside and out, on the day of her wedding there was so much peace and kindness in the room when I walked in, just so much goodness surrounding her!

Ashley also just glowed and showed so much excitement to marry Clay. She was more than ready to see her man down the aisle and was ready to be united as one. There is nothing more beautiful than seeing my couples just so excited! And to top it off to how cool is it to have your anniversary on July 4th? When you look up at the sky and fireworks are off in the distance it’ll always serve as a reminder about those sparks felt on your wedding day!

It was a beautiful day at The Allen Farmhaus in New Braunfels, TX not only was it clear skies and sunny for a day of marriage but also there was an air show. Yes! Wonderful vintage-like prop planes came in and flew throughout the area after the wedding ceremony was an amazing site!

I was pretty obsessed with Ashely’s ring from Nicole Mera, a yellow diamond you guys… how cool is that?!

The sweetest little engraving inside of Clayton’s ring.

Isn’t Ashley just stunning?!

It wouldn’t be a Kraft Sister event without a Charcuterie board. Which reminds me the cutie to Ashley’s right one of the Farmhaus Duo, Maitlyn!

There was a lot of fun energy in the room just see for yourself!

One of my favorite moments, the part where everything starts to feel real.

Deep breaths before seeing Dad.

The sweetest ring, this ring belonged to Ashley’s Grandmother and was worn on her wedding day as well as her mothers. How sweet is that?

I’m not crying, you’re crying. Mr. Patterson was a complete hoot to be around all day!

Melting my heart here.

Ashley’s gown fit her like a glove! Such a beautiful gown from Celebrations bridal & prom! Not to mention the beautiful cascading florals by Urban Stems.

Clayton opening his wedding day present from Ashley. A bible filled with post its of their favorite scriptures to one another. How thoughtful is that? So sweet!!

Groomsmen: “Can we……?”

Me: “Okay!” Ha!

This wall had so much meaning on Ashley & Clay’s wedding day. Brandon, Ashley’s brother recently passed away and his photograph was placed there along with other beautiful family members.

Such a beautiful space! Edison bulbs, farmhaus tables, smilax, and little hints of red, white, and blue? LOVE IT!

Also it’s not 4th of July without good ol’ fashion American eats! The Gruene Avocado had several displays throughout the venue for guests to choose from. There was burgers, these delicious pork sliders, corn dogs, and even an ice cream dessert bar filled with toppings! Good food and good people!

The newest farmhaus member, Sandy the Shasta Photobooth! Isn’t she just precious?

I love chapels like this, where you can feel nature and the presence of God all in one.

The hog here, is an insider joke between Ashley & her late brother, Brandon and was at the ceremony site.

That little wave!!

Joy all around.

And of course, it wouldn’t be July 4th without a little visit from Ol’ Uncle Sam! Their officiant was too cute!

Right after the ceremony the planes came out and so glad we snapped this shot!

Show me your moves honey!

One of my favorite features about the farmhaus? The bistro lit patio area for guests to take in the beautiful Texas Night Sky.

They cute.

It isn’t an Aggie wedding without a little Warhem action? Am I right?

The sweetest last dance of the night.

Wishing you both Clayton and Ashley all the happiness in the world!
