We met Ann and Trent several years ago at a wedding we were shooting.  They were the best man and maid of honor and maid of honor at their friends', Esme and Cole, wedding.  They danced and acted silly the whole evening.  We told them when they were ready to get married that they should call us because we would love to be their photographers.  Well...lucky us...they called!  And, we were so glad they did because we had a wonderful time with them.

Ann and Trent are both so laid back.  Going to their wedding was like going to spend the afternoon with old friends.  Their venue, Gruene Estate, was such a cool little place for a wedding.....Click Here See The Gallery
