Wedding in Far West Texas, Part 1

I love love love weddings in West Texas.  Particularly at The Gage in Marathon.  This hotel is set up to handle all of your wedding needs and it is beautiful!  If you’re thinking of having a destination wedding, consider Far West Texas, you and your guests will not be disappointed!  It’s the home of Marathon, Alpine, and the increasingly popular Marfa, Texas.   It’s also home to Big Bend National Park and the Davis Mountains.  As well as the McDonald Observatory.  OH!  And don’t forget about the mysterious Marfa Lights.   As the name indicates, it’s FAR.  Far from anything.  Midland, Texas is 3 hours away, as is El Paso.  The ultimate Texas road trip, if you will.
Growing up, I spent a lot of time in West Texas – my family is from there.  So at an early age I was spellbound by that area of Texas’ insanely beautiful and dramatic sunsets.  So any chance I get to shoot out there, I take it.  Shelby and Brooks were married in Marathon at the groom’s family ranch.  It was stunning and I would go on and on.  But I’ll just let the pictures speak for themselves!  Happily, I was able to shoot some with my Holga camera.  Which, I also love love love.

A west Texas wedding ceremony wouldn’t be complete without something creepy-crawly in attendance.  For the record, there were two tarantulas!

Far West Texas, Part 2 coming soon!
