Last Sunday was bridal portrait day. The weather cooperated by raining and getting very chilly. We had grand illusions of heading north to the hill country to take advantage of the bluebonnets for the photo shoot. Drizzle and temps in the 50's do not say "outdoor photo shoot"! The bride scrambled around and made plan B which turned out better than plan A! Things work out that way sometimes.

We, well the bride and the photographer, found a lovely old inn in Brenham, Texas that would let us use the property for the photos for a nominal fee. The Ant Street Inn provided us with a room for the bride to change into the special white dress and places to take indoor and covered outdoor photos in case of rain. It was just charming! Brenham was very quiet on that dreary Sunday afternoon. There was one bright spot in a white dress being followed by a photographer, her mom and her sister-in-law (aka hairdresser extraordinaire). We got plenty of honks, thumbs up and congratulations as we paraded through the town.
|One of the bedrooms had an old elevator right in the middle of the room.|
We thought it looked a bit like an ancient S&M apparatus....but I digress....
Mother Nature smiled on us and the rain stopped a couple of hours before we got to Brenham. The gray skies provided lovely light for the photos and the town was the perfect backdrop with its old brick walls, wrought iron fences, secluded courtyards and quaint downtown streets.

You didn't think I was going to satisfy your curiosity and give you a sneak peak did you?
Even though it is killing me to do just that!
