I had been looking forward to Claire and Jake’s big day for a long time. Ever since their super fun engagement session in Waco with their Goldendoodle Newton I was a fan of this pair! They’re both engineers and now live happily in their new home in Boulder, Colorado.
Claire and Jake said “I do” at Claire’s parents’ historic home in downtown Bastrop, Texas. It’s a gorgeous property with white columns, expansive gardens and wonderful light since it’s a corner lot. We made sure to get so many photos of the couple and their guests in front of and around the beautiful home, it was a dream for sure! What’s more, since their engagement session Claire and Jake added another Goldendoodle to their family, Ada was also a part of their big day along with big brother Newton.
Something that struck me throughout the day was the mention of how Claire and Jake met each other early on in college at SMU and were wonderful friends even before they started dating. They were a shining example of a healthy and thriving relationship among their friend group. After a lovely ceremony, cocktail hour and meal everyone partied hard atop the swimming pool dance floor with a silent disco. It was the first one I’ve ever been a part of it and it was epic.
Congratulations to Claire and Jake…and Newton and Ada 🙂
