Devin and Jessica’s wedding was our first trip out to Lubbock, TX and the campus of Texas Tech. We passed at least one million wind turbines on the way there, but it was well worth the drive. The campus of Texas Tech is quite beautiful. There was so much more filming and exploring we wanted to do around campus in the early mornings – we wish we would have had a few more days. And that stadium – dang! Devin and Jessica have some super-cute engagement pictures they had taken inside the stadium and next time we’re in Lubbock we want in too!
Devin and Jessica are also among the first couples to get married at the campus’s new Kent R. Hance Chapel, and they accessorized in true Red Raider style – red florals, with small hints of black. The inside of the chapel is pretty much a blank canvas – so whether you want to go fancy, or keep things simple and casual – you can pretty much make it what you want. And just in case you had any doubt about where Devin and Jessica’s colligate loyalties lie, you need only look at their groom’s cake – which was a giant replica of the stadium, complete with their picture on the jumbo-tron.
Not only did Jessica and Devin do a first look, they did ALL their portraits (including family) before the ceremony. I know this is a sticky point for some couples but it really just adds so much more variety to the pictures and footage. We have oodles of other cute moments we couldn’t fit into the sneak peek, and the best part is as soon as Devin and Jessica walked down the aisle they we able to head right over to their reception to celebrate . . .although they kindly allowed us to grab them a little later for a few sunset shots in front of the stadium.
For Jessica and Devin’s wedding we worked along side Ginger Ivey. She was super-fun – love shooting with photographers you can just easily work together with, enjoy the wedding and share some laughs. I am also semi-obsessed with her children’s hair (Her two boys have bright red curly mops – they are adorable!).
We head back to Lubbock in a few months for another wedding and we can’t wait to revisit parts of the campus we weren’t able to film the first time.
