Couple Took to their Wedding Venue for a Dreamy Engagement Session

There is something so romantic about this dreamy engagement captured by Erika Geier Photography in magical, light-filled scenes around the couple’s future wedding venue! We’re loving this growing trend that is a fun way to feel out all the best photo ops around your venue’s property before the day of, while also setting a precedence to your guests from the very beginning regarding what they can expect your big day to be like! This adorable couple even included a furry friend in the whole affair. Tayler and Brandon’s story began when they first met in 2018 on New Year’s Eve at a gathering with mutual friends. So romantic, and totally living out our High School Musical fantasy! When the right time came, Brandon popped the question with a picnic at Buffalo Bayou Park right at sunset. Tayler said yes, and now Hopeful Events & Design is helping the pair plan the Houston wedding of their dreams! They’re planning to keep things romantic and intimate with their November nuptials, and will be decorating with a nod to their proposal using sunset shades of peach, as well as pale green and white. Soon-to-be bride Tayler says she is most excited for their first looks and, of course, the ceremony! If the photos are even half as sweet as the ones in this dreamy engagement session, pack extra tissues and prepare for waterworks! Read on for a note from their talented photographer about capturing these sweet shots below. Cheers to the future Augustines!

From the photographer, Erika Geier Photography: “Rebekah with Hopeful Events & Design introduced Tayler and Brandon to me. I couldn’t be more thankful for the vendors that tell clients about me. Tayler and Brandon decided to have their engagement pictures done at their wedding venue. I loved this idea, we went all around the venue and I had so much fun getting to photograph my couple. They included their puppy Leo in some of the pictures as well. He is a cutie! They will be saying ‘I do’ in November 2021 at The Balmorhea Weddings and Events Venue.”
