This intimate and romantic Texas ranch wedding shared by photographer, Callie Manion has got to be one of my favorites. I say that all the time, but really it’s love stories like this that inspires me in my personal life to love my husband more. Erin and Josh’s love story started a long time ago but culminated into a wedding celebration filled with meaningful moments. From the brooch on the bouquet passed down to Erin from her grandmother to the moment walked down the aisle with their beautiful daughter, Scarlett. Not only were everything was so well thought out but there was so much meaning behind the details that were intertwined throughout the day.


Their photographer’s last favorite moment of the day was their First Look. “I have always loved First Looks because it lets a couple have a private moment alone to see each other without a whole crowd of eyes on them. This usually results in a more genuine reaction from both the bride and groom, and this was exactly the case for Erin and Josh. They both had butterflies before seeing each other and the moment Erin came and hugged Josh from behind, he let his emotions flow. It was such a tender moment to witness!”


I also loved that Josh and Erin chose to keep the bridal party small and only include family and Erin’s very best friend. It kept the wedding day feeling more intimate and relaxed and then allowed the couple to visit with all their extended family and friends at the reception.


One of my favorite details had to be the floral arch for the ceremony by Jacqueline Padilla where the couple stood overlooking the most gorgeous view! The flowers gave that extra little touch to make the ceremony site truly amazing.

Not only was their ceremony beautiful, but it was also so full of meaning. I loved that Josh chose to walk down the aisle with their daughter Scarlett to make sure she was included and to signify that Josh and Erin exchanging vows meant more than two people committing to each other—they were uniting their family.


Erin and Josh had a beautiful wedding and everyone present could feel their love. The love each of the guests had for this sweet couple and the genuine excitement for these two finally saying “I Do” was just palpable.
