Annoucing Mr. & Mrs. Joshua Ward

Josh and Kristen were married on June 15, 2012 at the Orchard in Azle, TX.  The ceremony was outside in a beautiful pecan orchard under a pergola with a pond in the background.  Kristen's brother officiated and Justin was the best man.  It was a lovely ceremony and Kristen looked stunning! 

The reception was inside with dinner from Spring Creek and dancing.  We had a great time spending the evening with family and friends!  Josh and Kristen had an old school photo booth at the reception complete with tons of props.  You put on silly props and took photos in the booth.  After four photos, there was a prompt to record a short video message to the bride and groom.  Upon exiting, you got a copy of the photos to keep and they put a second copy in a book for Kristen and Josh and allowed you to write a message next to your photos.  It was a great idea and so fun!  

They did not smear cake on each other :)

Kristen and Josh exited the evening with all the guests lining the sidewalk and waving sparklers.  After they pulled away in their fancy retro car, Josh's groomsman and family friend, Justin Hudson, stripped down to his boxers and socks, ran across the lawn, and jumped into the pond!  My instigating husband politely warned all the guests by yelling, "hey guys, you might want to see this".  It was a perfect ending to such a fun day!

I just have to comment on your parent's photos. At first, I thought they had chosen some of the props for their photos, but then I recognized your dad's bowtie and knew he had brought his own clothes (including his lovely glasses). Actually, they are fun photos, so thanks for sharing them. I must have somehow overlooked yours and Justin's set.
