Cortni and Jason – Wedding Ceremony at Saint Patrick’s CathedralFort Worth, TX

What a beautiful day full of joy and emotions!  Cortni and Jason are absolutely precious and I am so excited to show off their wedding day!  They were married at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in Downtown Fort Worth, but started the day at their reception venue, BRIK.  Once we got Cortni in her amazing dress, we went outside for some fun bridesmaids photos.  Cortni was then given a little gift and note from Jason and she only got a couple of sentences in before she was so moved to tears that she couldn’t continue to read.  I think Jason and his groomsmen had a little more fun while getting ready then most guys tend to.  It was time for Cortni to walk down the aisle and boy, did she look stunning!  It was so sweet seeing Jason tear up as his bride walked toward him.  They were so cute up at the altar during the service, stealing little glances toward one another.  Everything was absolutely perfect and they became husband and wife!  Check out my favorites from their Catholic ceremony and be sure to check back when their reception photos are posted!

Chandler & Nic – First Look and Ceremony at the OrchardAzle, Texas

What a wedding!  Chandler and Nic are such a fun couple and I had such a great time photographing their special day.  These two met a few years ago and decided to tie the knot at the Orchard Venue.  Just as the sun was setting these two said “I do” under a chandelier lit pergola which was just perfect.  Check out some of my favorite moments from their beautiful winter wedding!

Laura Jean and Branden – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at St. Thomas AquinasDallas, Texas

How sweet are Laura Jean & Branden??  I always get so excited when I have the privilege to photograph such amazing couples!  So basically I’m excited all the time.  We began the day at Laura Jean’s parent’s home where her and her girls spent the morning hanging out and getting ready.  They were all so cute hanging out in Laura Jean’s childhood bedroom getting ready together.  We got to the church and got Laura Jean in her dress and she was absolutely stunning.  She had beautiful lace sleeves that made her gown even more elegant than it already was.  It was then time for their first look!  All of the family and bridal party stayed inside peeking through the window waiting to see Branden’s face when he saw Laura Jean for the first time.  It makes me so happy to be able to just feel the love between two people and with these two that was definitely the case.  Not only could you feel their love for each other but for all of their friends and family and even their vendors.  I can’t tell you how much I enjoy becoming friends with my couples and how much it means to me when they treat me like I’m part of their family.  That’s just how Laura Jean and Branden are.  Please enjoy some of my favorite moments from their first look and ceremony and be sure to check back for their reception!

Lauren and Greg – Wedding at The Renaissance Worthington HotelFort Worth, Texas

It may have been a gloomy January day outside, but inside the ballrooms of the Worthington it was the exact opposite.  Lauren and Greg spent the day surrounded by family and friends as they prepared for their marriage and new life together.  They had a few minutes to themselves during their first look before beginning all of their wedding day events.  Then it was time for the signing of the Ketubah and wedding ceremony.  Lauren looked beautiful as she walked arm in arm with her parents to her future groom.  One thing that I loved about the Jewish ceremony was that the parents stood under the Chuppah with the couple.  What a wonderful way to watch your child be married!  Once they were pronounced husband and wife it was time to celebrate!  Thanks to Jamie and the rest of the team at Tami Winn Events, the ballroom was transformed into the winter wonderland that Lauren had her heart set on and everyone enjoyed the music by one of my favorite bands, Professor D!  It was so much fun to be out on the dance floor with everyone, especially during the Hora!  After all of the fun and dancing it was time to send the couple off to their new life together.  They were sent off through a tunnel of sparklers and taken away in a horse drawn carriage.  Congratulations to Lauren and Greg!

Shelby & Clifton – Ceremony at St. Patrick’s CathedralFort Worth Wedding

From the first time I met Shelby I knew I would enjoy photographing this wedding.  Shelby and Clifton grew up around Fort Worth and have known each other for quite a while.  They both attended A&M (Whoop!) and had many aggies in attendance.   The ladies got ready at the wonderful Brik Venue (speaking of Brik, check out some of her gorgeous bridal portraits here!) and then we headed to St. Patrick’s Cathedral for the ceremony.  Shelby chose some gorgeous colors for the wedding and the bridesmaids wore long beaded gowns that complimented Shelby in her dress.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Sara and Matt – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at First United Methodist ChurchFort Worth, TX

What a perfect beginning to 2017!  I absolutely adore Sara and Matt and I am so glad that they were my first wedding of the year!  These two Horned Frogs were married at First United Methodist Church in Fort Worth.  Sara and her girls were a hoot during getting ready and it took almost all of them to hold up the front of her dress while putting on her garter.  Once they got Sara in her dress and all ready to go, it was time for her to see her future husband for the first time.  While Matt and I were waiting for Sara to join us in the courtyard, I asked what he thought her dress looked like.  He guessed that it would be big and poofy. He was right!  Sara made an absolutely stunning bride and I think Matt had a little trouble holding back the tears.  When taking in the vision that was his bride, he noticed that a strand of her hair was blue!  Sara says that when she was younger she used to dye her hair blue and so this was a fun way for her to bring that part of her to her wedding day and it was also her something blue!  It may have been a little chilly outside but boy did we have a fun time with all of Sara & Matt’s family and bridal party.  They were having fun making their “fake candid” photos as they liked to call them which made me laugh.  At last it was time to walk down the aisle.  Sara was escorted down the aisle by her sweet daddy and he gave her away to Matt.  They exchanged beautiful vows and officially became husband and wife!  It brings me so much joy to be able to share these images with everyone and show the love and happiness that this couple and their families possess.  Please check back soon for the rockin’ reception!

Molly and Sha – Wedding CeremonyWildcatter Ranch - Graham, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

I am so excited to share this wedding with y’all!  The whole day was absolutely perfect!  The only thing I would have changed was probably the amount of wind.  When we first arrived, it was a little bit like a tornado with how hard the wind was blowing but other than that, perfect. Molly and Sha are truly an amazing couple and a ton of fun to be around.  They were married at Wildcatter Ranch with beautiful views and close friends and family surrounding them. The ceremony was full of love and laughter followed by a chest bump by the bride and groom after they made their way back up the aisle.   They had a superstar team of vendors that brought their vision to life and made the whole day run smoothly.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their ranch wedding and be sure to check back for more from their reception!

Thank you to all of the wonderful vendors!

Katie and Cantey – First Look and Wedding CeremonyPrivate Property - Fort Worth, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

What a beautiful day!  Katie and Cantey are married and I cannot get enough!  They were married on private property, owned by family, complete with their very own little white chapel.  Katie and her girls got ready out in the pool house and naturally had the TCU game playing in the background – Go Frogs!  The bridesmaids looked stunning in their floor length, purple gowns and the house party was so elegant in their black gowns.  I think everyone’s jaw hit the floor once Katie got her dress on.  She definitely had that Old Hollywood glamour thing going on and man was she gorgeous!  Katie and Cantey shared a first look and we were able to use some beautiful spots around the property to get some pre-ceremony photos!  It was finally that time for Katie to put on her veil and walk down the aisle.  The chapel was very small, so only family and wedding party were able to attend which made it all the more special.  After all of the wedding party had made their way down the aisle, it was Katie’s turn.  She made her way to Cantey arm in arm with her mom and together they walked up the walkway to the music of a string quartet.  It was like something out of a movie.  Once she made it to the front of the church, Cantey couldn’t quite contain his excitement and jumped the gun a few times when declaring his intent.  Who could blame him though?  Cantey’s dad performed the ceremony and pronounced them husband and wife!  They couldn’t have looked any happier walking back up the aisle together.  Please enjoy some of my very favorites from Katie and Cantey’s first look and ceremony.  Be sure to check back soon for more from their reception!
