Busy Bridal Weekend

The weekend started out with a trip to the Astin Mansion located here in Bryan, Texas to meet with one of our brides, Kimbra Lindsey. She and Luke will be married in January with their reception following at the Mansion. The Astin Mansion was built in 1924 by Roger Q. and Nina Heard Astin. A perfect example of the grand 1920's style architecture, this gem has been listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Because of the beautiful architecture and scenery, it seemed like just the right place to shoot her bridal portraits.  Kimbra is in pharmacy school in Austin and Luke is working in Fort Worth but both attended Texas A&M University.

After driving through the hectic traffic of both San Antonio and Austin, she arrived with her mother and father. Dad was sent off so he wouldn't see her in her dress and mom and friends and roomie stayed around to help out.

Her are just a few shots from her session. I love her dress!
