What a wonderful family. We were pleased to pack up and head to Texarkana for Morgan & Ben's celebration at the Ledwell family home. It is a stately Victorian home on their ranch land, with stained glass windows and wallpaper so lovely it would have Anthropologie designers drooling.

Morgan sent us a few descriptions of what her wedding day would be like, and her descriptions filled us with anticipation about how beautiful the day would be:
"This is a Victorian home with a cupola that you can climb up into if you want a high shot of the surroundings. We have a cigar roller who will be working throughout the reception. My bouquet will have my maternal grandmother's handkerchief that she held at her wedding as my something borrowed. As well as my late paternal grandmother's pin. My something blue is the garter. I'd love a lot of shots of the gardens around the home and the house itself."
We were excited to see even more when we arrived--they had a photobooth for reception entertainment, a s'mores bar, a cigar/dessert lounge, live music from dallas, and plenty of late night snacks to go around. Morgan had also told us about her grandfather's famous rose garden, which certainly lived up to its reputation!
Morgan & Ben hired us to film both their wedding and their rehearsal dinner, and the speech you see in the preview was given by the Best Man, Reid, who is the groom's life-long best friend. Reid has us crying with laughter, and you'll have to tune in later to see his wonderful toasts in the full film.
Morgan chose to have all of her bridesmaids wear white & cream cocktail dresses in whatever cut and design they chose. They looked lovely!
The groomsmen looked dapper in their classy black satin bow ties and vividly colored floral boutonnieres.
The bride's bouquet was made up of a variety of roses & peonies in subtle shades of pink and yellow.
