Wow, what can I say? Nothing is better than getting to see a college friend get married and helping create her perfect day!
I met Hannah 3 years ago when attending Texas A&M University and working at Traditions Golf Course. I was the hostess and Hannah was one of the servers, I immediately noticed her kindness and social personality and we became friends just then. Fast forward several years and I have the pleasure of working with her on one of the most important days of her life - her wedding day!
Hannah and Nash have been together for several years and I am so excited to have been a part of their magical wedding day! They tied the knot in a traditional Catholic ceremony at Saint Marys Catholic Church, followed by a reception and dance party at Enoc's Stomp Winery and Vineyard. Surrounded by friends and family Hannah and Nash were truly celebrated!
What does running into your perfect wedding day look like? This is such a fun and sweet moment between Hannah and Nash - despite the grey skies, stormy clouds and rainy day, Hannah and Nash shined so bright and were the life of the party throughout their romantic vineyard wedding.

Like any and all weddings should end - the Fightin' Texas Aggie War Hymn payed, we joined arms, we screamed and swayed together in complete chaos, but total joy and love. It was one hell of a redass way to end the perfect night.
My Recommendation From This Wedding:
Take a HUGE family & guest photo - we did this right after the fake exit when all the family, friends and guests were already gathered together and it was super easy and is something that truly shows all of your guest celebrating you all at once!
All in all this wedding was an absolute blast - not only was the dance floor bumping, but so many happy tears shed for the newlyweds. We even had guest appearance from one of Hannahs best friends who graduated college the morning of May 22nd forcing her to miss the ceremony. Check out more of the pictures below to see just how in love Hannah and Nash are and how happy their family, friends and guests are for them!
Congrats again to Hannah and Nash Hankins - I wish you nothing but love and joy in the years to come, May 22nd will forever hold a special place in my heart. Thank you for trusting me with the power of your happiest day, letting me see you twirl around like Cinderella, get you down the aisle, and giving me the opportunity to just celebrate you, cheers to you both today, tomorrow and forever!
