Where do I even begin with this post?!  So many cool things about this beautiful couple!!  From the first inquiry we got from Jenna to their sparkler grand exit every detail was beautifully thought out and perfectly executed.

Some people might think it’s crazy to start dating someone and be engaged/married in a matter of a few months, but not me, and not the friends and family of Jenna and Travis.  They were meant to be, and although the timing hadn’t be right before, this time it was…so why wait?

I’ve never seen a couple look at each other the way these two do.  Adoration, love, pride…it exudes from their eyes and their smiles when they look at or talk about each other. Apart from one another each one is strong, independent and successful and together they seem pretty much unstoppable.

I decided to split their posts up into 2 separate posts.  I just couldn’t decide where to stop with the editing so I went a little crazy.  This first post is the pre-ceremony, first look, ceremony and some portraits and the next post will be their reception and wedding details. Their wedding could possibly be my favorite one to date.  And we couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful Texas day than what they had.  Everything was perfect…and I have the pictures to prove it!

Jenna looked STUNNING in this gorgeous dress!

That’s the Guadalupe River behind them.  Their venue Marquardt Ranch was the perfect setting for their rustic wedding.

Oh yes! We had celebrities there!  Jenna was the 2004 Miss New Mexico and competed in the Miss USA pageant so it only made sense that one of her bridesmaids is this year’s 2011 Miss New Mexico! Can’t wait to see her compete in the Miss USA pageant! How cool!!  And really? How beautiful are these girls?
