Abbey & Ben – First Look and Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelFort Worth, TX

I have a special place in my heart for Aggies, and let me tell you, there were a lot of Aggies at this wedding!  Abbey’s eyes lit up when she talked about how her and Ben met in College Station and about how much she loves him.  Their first look was filled with smiles and total sweetness!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Melissa and Cody – Wedding at The OrchardAzle, TX

Melissa and Cody are married!  We started the day thinking the rain was going to keep us from being outside, but it did not!  Melissa and Cody chose to see each other before the ceremony and luckily it quit raining just in time!  They read notes they had written to each other and then Cody turned to see his bride for the first time and I think his breath may have literally been taken away.  They held the ceremony inside surrounded by their closest family and friends and said sweet vows to each other that made me tear up!  After they shared their first kiss, Cody smashed the glass (a Jewish tradition that they incorporated into their wedding) and they were on their way up the aisle as husband and wife!  Then it was time to celebrate and Melissa and Cody spent the rest of the evening enjoying chatting and dancing with all of the important people in their lives.  At the end of the night they spent one last dance together, taking in the day and each other.  They were then sent off to their new life through the glowing lights of sparklers.  Congratulations to Melissa and Cody!

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!

Erin and Colby – Wedding at Hollow HillWeatherford, TX

They say it’s good luck for it to rain on your wedding day.  Well, I say it’s even better luck for it to rain and then stop just in time for your outdoor ceremony!  That is exactly what happened for Erin and Colby.  It was raining off and on all morning and they were considering moving the ceremony inside, but it finally stopped and it was absolutely beautiful! The grass wasn’t even wet.  Erin looked stunning as she walked down the aisle arm in arm with her dad.  Her dress perfectly complimented her outdoor space and her boots were just the icing on the cake.  Colby teared up as he saw his bride walking toward him and when she arrived next to him, gave him the cutest smile.  With a backdrop of green trees behind them, they said their vows and became husband and wife!  It was the perfect setting.  Then it was time to party!  After dinner, the guests made their way into the barn for dancing and cake!  Erin and Colby spent the evening enjoying time with their friends and family just dancing until it was time for them to head out to begin their new life together!  Congratulations to Erin and Colby!

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 – 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!

Lisa and Chandler – Wedding Ceremony and Reception at BRIKFort Worth, TX

Lisa and Chandler were married surrounded by close family and friends and after their vows, they joined all of their guests for dinner and dancing in the glow of romantic candlelight that filled the venue.  They spent the evening catching up with all of their friends and family while taking turns heading out to the dance floor and showing off their dancing skills!   It was a beautiful night celebrating their love with the ones they love most and it went by so quick!  Before we knew it, it was time for the night to end to say goodbye to the newlyweds.  Lisa and Chandler spent a few minutes alone in a private last dance, wrapped up in each other’s arms.  This is always one of my favorite moments of the night, just the bride and groom dancing with no one else around.  The song ended and it was time to send them on their way through a tunnel of sparklers where they drove away to begin their new life together!  Congratulations Lisa and Chandler!

Lauren and Akshay – Wedding at Clark GardensWeatherford, TX

When I checked facebook the morning of Lauren and Akshay’s wedding, the first thing I saw was a status update from Lauren.  I thought it would have said something to do with it being her wedding day, but it actually said “Happy Earth Day”.  That is what I love so much about these two.  They are so free-spirited and easy going and so much fun to be around.  I love that I can joke back and forth with them like I can with any of my old friends.  I remember when I first met Lauren and she told me she was designing her own wedding dress.  It was so exciting to see the finished product.  Lauren wanted to honor her mother’s memory by putting some color into her dress, since her mother wore a similar color on her own wedding day.  I love that she thought to have her mom close to her in this way on her big day.  Once it was time for the ceremony and everybody was seated, Akshay came down the aisle right after his best man and little french bulldog. Everyone stood for the bride and as soon as Lauren rounded the corner I heard him gasp and say “she looks SO beautiful”.  It made me smile instantly.  Isn’t that the reaction every bride wants out of her groom?  That just set the tone for the rest of the ceremony and left me (and everyone else) grinning the whole time.  After the ceremony everyone headed into the tent for the party!  In between dancing Lauren and Akshay greeted their guest along side their very sweet (and cold) puppy!  They also played the newlywed game and were asked some questions about each other.  I think Akshay might have had a little too much fun playing that game, but he was a nice husband and put his own shoe up when it came to those questions that could put you in the doghouse if you answer wrong.  It came to the end of the night pretty quickly and everyone lined up to send the newlyweds off.  Lauren and Akshay ran through a tunnel of rose petals and were on their way to begin their new life together!  Please take a look at their beautiful Earth Day Wedding!

Eve & Derek – Ceremony and Reception at Stonegate MansionFort Worth, Texas

This couple is dear to my heart!  Eve and Derek got married on a beautiful (if a little windy) day under a gorgeous chuppah.  I have know Eve for several years now because I used to watch her sweet son.  I just love that she has found Derek and tied the knot!  These two had a beautiful Christian and Jewish ceremony at the Stonegate Mansion in Fort Worth surrounded by friends and family.  Check out some of my favorite moments from their day.
