Located in East Texas, The Folmar wedding venue is the Southern chic dream. It’s a wonderful fit for couple’s wanting to tie the knot outside the city with an intimate group of friends/family. This antique pale blue French doors are iconic and immediately recognizable in photos. The sides of the chapel are solid windows, so even this overcast February day had gorgeous light all day. The Folmar Wedding chapel can be decorated, but it’s crisp bright interior is gorgeous all by itself.
There are two separate houses for the bride & groom to get ready in on the property. It’s nice to have both sides of the bridal party close for photos, without worrying about the groom sneaking an accidental peek at the bride. The bridal house is equipped with a well lit dressing room with plenty of room and seating for your bridal party. Definitely an East Texas must see for brides to be!
Micaela & Dalton were such an easygoing couple to work with. She never complained once about the on and off rain during the day. The weather didn’t matter one bit, she looked beyond fabulous. I might have been a tad obnoxious in hyping her up during her bridal portraits. It’s not my fault when my brides look that good!
Dalton was happy to take all the photos Micaela wanted, and made sure their The Folmar Wedding experience was captured perfectly. He was especially sweet during their first look during the chapel. He could barely contain his excitement at the first glimpse of his stunning bride.
This first look was one of my favorite reactions ever! The joy and love is so easy to see between these two! It was so fun to get to take some chapel portraits before their ceremony. It was pouring during this time so the well lit indoor space was such a life saver!
Micaela had fabulous taste in details and the blue and white color palette complimented The Folmar Wedding so well! I had never thought of using your colors to tie into the venue so literally before, but really loved the result. Instead of having a classic bridal party, Micaela had ‘ladies in blue’ to include more close friends and family into her group photos. It made for lots of fun images getting ready and in their various shades of blue once everyone was dressed.
The chapel was packed all the way to the back for the ceremony with friends and family. It was deafening with cheers and clapping for their first kiss as Mr. & Mrs. Dakil. The tent reception that followed was full of silly dance moves and the Texas Tech fight song sang by the Red Raiders in attendance.
Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Dakil!
