Celine & Wesley Engagement – Dallas Arboretum & White Rock LakeDallas, TX

These two made the drive from west Texas to do this morning session!  We went to the Dallas Arboretum and White Rock Lake for some nature which is perfect since they will be saying “I Do” at the Texas Discovery Garden.   These two met at Texas Tech and wore their jersey’s for the second part of their session.  How fun!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their session!

Abbey & Ben – Reception at the Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

After their beautiful ceremony, they headed to the Ashton Depot for their reception.  As the guests arrived to the reception they enjoyed signature cocktails, a mariachi band, hand-rolled cigars, and a picture booth with a beer burro! Inside, the space was transformed with beautiful pink uplighting and lush florals.  Don’t even get me started on the groom’s cake!  Chocolate covered cake balls lined a replica Texas A& M Kyle Field Football Stadium while the brides cake was decorated in pretty pink flowers.  I mean, does it get any better?  The bride and groom entered and went into a fun and sassy dance before a starting a slow dance as their first dance as husband and wife.  As a gift to the father of the bride, the couple brought out a birthday cake and sang to him since his birthday fell on that special day! Then, the dance party got started with a surprise drumline and didn’t stop until the couple left in style in a vintage car.  Check out some of my favorite moments!

Nicole & Jacob – Wedding Ceremony and Reception at the BRIKFort Worth, TX

Nicole & Jacob got married on a beautiful, if not slightly warm (Hello Texas!), day in Fort Worth.  I have had the privilege of shooting at BRIK before and I just love it.  With all the natural light and fun textures this is definitely a great space to get married.  She chose some great vendors to make this Texas themed wedding come alive.  The bridesmaids wore beautiful navy dresses that complimented the white, ivory, and light blue florals.  As the bride and groom kissed for the first time, family and friends rang cow bows!  How fun!  These two also had a very fun band play during their reception.  The Dick Beldings are a 90s cover band that one of the groomsman is a member of.  Not your average wedding band!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their wedding!

Sarah & Matthew – Reception at the Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

If you haven’t heard of Molly from Pop Parties, you are missing out!  She helped coordinate Sarah & Matthew’s day so that it would run smoothly.  Not only does a coordinator help a couple’s dream come to reality, but they allow the other vendors, including myself, to work efficiently and help everyone follow the schedule!  It is always a pleasure working with great vendors!

These two had a very sweet first dance followed by open dancing where everyone was showing off their dance moves.  Check out some of my favorite moments from Sarah & Matthew’s reception!

Sarah & Matthew – First Look & Ceremony at the Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

I had the opportunity to get to know these two during their engagement session a few months back in Dallas.  Engagement sessions are a great time for me to get to know my couples, how they met, and what they do for fun but during their session they kept asking questions about ME!  This blew me away and was just the start of getting to know their sweet and generous characters.  I knew their wedding day would be one full of laughter and joy!  These two chose to do a first look in one of the gardens at the Arboretum, and it was nothing short of great!  We had a lot of fun snapping some pictures before the wedding around some of the pretty places in the Arboretum.  They said “I Do” under a beautiful arbor decorated with flowers that one of their dad’s made.  The sun setting, the arbor, and the lush garden set the scene for their happy ceremony.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Remy & Max – Reception at the Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, Texas

Let me tell you this ballroom was magical!  Justine’s Flowers did a wonderful job in creating this wonderful backdrop for this reception.  With a live band and colorful uplighting, you know it’s going to be a great party.  To make it even better, the brother of the groom decided to surprise the couple by having one of their favorite local artists and talented singer/musician, Grady Spencer, play the song during their first dance as husband and wife!  Take a look at their surprise as they walked in!  The maid of honor also broke out into a rap during toasts, which had everyone laughing.  Their wasn’t a dull moment during this reception!

Here are some of my favorite moments from their fun-filled reception!

Remy & Max – Getting Ready and Ceremony at St. Patrick’s CathedralFort Worth, Texas

Remy and Max got ready for their big day at the Fort Worth Club before heading to St. Patrick’s Cathedral to say “I Do.”  Before the ceremony, Remy decided to have a first look with her dad which had every one in tears, including me!  There is nothing quite like the father/daughter bond!  Both Remy and Max’s parents seemed to play an important role in their relationship, and the couple chose to incorporate them in very special ways throughout the day.

St. Patrick’s is a gorgeous place to get married, and with the full choir, it truly was an amazing ceremony.  These two were all smiles!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!
