Celine & Wesley – Ceremony at Texas Discovery GardenDallas, Texas

I had the pleasure of getting to know Celine and Wesley at their engagement session and was super excited for their big day!  They got married in front of the fountain at the Texas Discovery Gardens with gorgeous evening light streaming through the trees.  Celine is from Hawaii so there were fun little hints of Hawaii throughout their day.  Their wedding party was definitely a fun group and I had a feeling it would be a dancing crowd.  They didn’t disappoint!  Stay tuned for their reception!

Janey & Collin – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at Holy Trinity Catholic ChurchDallas, TX

Janey and Collin are married!  We began the day at The Carlisle Room where the reception would later be.  You could feel the excitement in the air as we drew closer to first look and ceremony time.  I think I made Collin anxious when I made him wait a little longer to turn around and see his bride for the first time.  When he did finally get to turn around, his jaw dropped seeing Janey in her dress.  She looked absolutely perfect and I think it was well worth the wait I put him through.  These two are the absolute cutest and I had been looking forward to their day for a long time!  We were able to get some beautiful romantic photos of them and some fun wedding party before heading to the church.   I loved how much of a fun and sweet group of friends they had in their bridal party.  It really made my job even easier!  We got to the church and it was time for the ceremony.  As Janey walked down the aisle on her dad’s arm, Collin looked like he had just seen her for the first time all over again.  I love how you can see his face light up every time he sees her.  The ceremony began and it was so beautiful, complete with a few giggles and sweet stolen glances at one another.  Before we knew it, they were pronounced husband and wife and making their way back up the aisle!  I can’t imagine it being any more perfect! Please check out some of my favorites from their first look and ceremony and check back soon for their fun reception at The Carlisle Room!

Abby & Casey – Wedding at The Fort Worth Club

Abby and Casey are married!  These two met playing soccer years ago and were married in the beautiful terrace of the Fort Worth Club complete with a fabulous view of Downtown Fort Worth.  Abby was escorted down the aisle by her mom and dad and she couldn’t have looked more stunning!  I love when ceremonies are full of memorable moments and Abby and Casey had several sweet, funny and tender moments.  During their vows Casey sweetly wiped a tear from Abby’s eye and just melted my heart.  After lighting the unity candle they were pronounced husband and wife and it was time to party!!  Everyone enjoyed cocktail hour with a fabulous all female mariachi band and then were all escorted into the ballroom to await the newlyweds.  Abby and Casey shared their first dance under the glowing light of the chandelier and then barely left the dance floor all night!  Nobody wanted to leave the dance floor, but all good things must come to an end.  Everyone gathered in front of the elevator and sent Abby and Casey off to start their new life through a tunnel of bubbles.  I’m so excited to share their day and so glad they chose me to capture it!

Nicki & Kenny – Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelFort Worth, TX

I am so excited to share Nicki and Kenny’s special day!  We started the day at The Fort Worth Club and I don’t think Nicki stopped smiling all morning.  Even when the tears started, she was still wearing a smile!  I absolutely loved the energy and happiness that I felt just during getting ready! Kenny loves Superman, so Nicki got him some fun Superman socks to surprise him with and to go with his Superman cuff links!  Once I saw Nicki’s dress, it was exactly what I pictured her wearing and she looked absolutely stunning.  Kenny even started coming up with all the different words he could think of to describe his new wife’s beauty.  It was so cute.  During the ceremony you could really feel the love between these two as Nicki so elegantly wiped tears from her eyes and Kenny could not keep his eyes off of her.  I am so happy to share some of my favorites from their big day and be sure to check back for more from their reception!

RoseAnn & Ross – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelFort Worth, TX

It seems like just yesterday that I was meeting RoseAnn and taking her bridal portraits, and now she is married!  When I first talked with RoseAnn about her wedding day and her plans, she told me about how she is very sentimental and about the meaningful things that would be happening.  I, also being a very sentimental person, got really excited.  RoseAnn is very close with her family and so she had many things at her wedding that had special meaning to her and different family members. Her shoes were her wedding colors and had their names and wedding date printed on the inside. She wore her grandmother’s jewelry.  Her brother gave her a beautiful charm bracelet that he placed on her wrist before they left for the church.  As she walked down the aisle arm in arm with her dad, she held a bouquet of yellow roses because her dad calls her “his yellow rose of Texas”.  How sweet is all of that?    Don’t worry!  She didn’t leave her new hubby out.  She had a brand new perfume specifically for her wedding day and anniversaries that she wore.  They say that you can associate memories with certain smells and what better way to remind you of your wedding day than a new scent?  She also wrote Ross a letter that he read right before the ceremony that he can always have and look back on.  I could go on and on but I think I’ll let the photos finish telling the story from here.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their special day and check back soon for their reception!

Erika & Joel – Wedding Ceremony at The OrchardAzle, TX

After 8 years together these high school sweethearts are finally married!!  Erika and Joel were married out at The Orchard in Azle.  It was a beautiful day and Erika looked stunning as she walked down the aisle on her dad’s arm, wearing a veil made from her mother’s dress.  Joel and Erika were so cute during their sand ceremony as they giggled and smiled at one another in pure happiness.  I think everyone was anxious for these two to tie the knot, but I think Franklin, their ring bearer Pug, might have been the most excited.  Your wedding day just isn’t complete without your best friend and Franklin was there to support his humans the whole way through!  Congrats to Erika and Joel!  To see more photos of Franklin and their reception check back soon!

Caitlin & Eric – Getting Ready and Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelFort Worth, Texas

I had the chance to get to know Caitlin during her bridals (stay tuned for those!) and knew that whoever she was marrying had to be as sweet as she was.  Caitlin & Eric met at work, and they really are such a great couple together.  They chose to do a first look outside at BRIK and Eric’s reaction is priceless!  We took some fun wedding party photos at BRIK before heading over to Robert Carr Chapel for the couple to say “I Do.”  Check out some of my favorite moments from the beginning of their day!

Kelly & Chris – Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel Reception at Historic 512Fort Worth, Texas

Kelly and Chris are as sweet as they come.  This day was filled with so many special moments with friends and family.  Kelly’s father walked her down the aisle at the beautiful Robert Carr Chapel and you can just see the look of love on Chris’ face!  Their reception was held at the Historic 512 and featured a fun swing band.  There was not a single dry eye in the venue after Kelly’s father gave a toast welcoming Chris into the family!  Thanks for letting me capture your sweet day!

Jessica & Sidney – Getting Ready and Ceremony at St. Patrick CathedralFort Worth, Texas

Jessica and Sidney met in highschool but never dated.  It wasn’t until senior year of college that these two reconnected and started dating!  These two chose to get ready in downtown Fort Worth surrounded by friends and family.  Sidney waited on the rooftop for his bride for their first look and then we stuck around to take some fun wedding party photos.  They had a beautiful Catholic ceremony at St. Patrick Cathedral and if you haven’t been there, you should go check it out!  It is quite stunning!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Jess and Bobby – Wedding at Piazza in the VillageColleyville, TX

Jess and Bobby are basically like my spirit animals.  Their love of sports and Harry Potter are enough to make me jump up and down with excitement.  Bobby proposed to Jess at the Rangers Ballpark and that’s where we took their engagement photos.  Jess surprised Bobby by taking her bridal portraits at Cowboys Stadium (AT&T Stadium) and their ring box looked like the 7th Harry Potter book.  I mean I geeked out a little getting to know these two!  Jess and Bobby were married at Piazza in the Village in Colleyville and they made sure to incorporate all of these things into their wedding.  They had “Always” written across the floor at the beginning of the aisle, and the ring bearers carried the Harry Potter ring box to surprise Bobby.  There was a lot of surprising Bobby throughout the day.  After the ceremony Jess gave Bobby his next surprise, which was a small canvas of one of her Dallas Cowboys bridal portraits.  It was so much fun to watch him open it.  Their reception was held in the ballroom and was lit with blue uplighting and red table linens (Rangers colors) and the grooms cake had the logos from the Stars, Rangers and Cowboys.  Their guests signed a baseball bat as they entered that would later hang in their house.  Once it was time for the toast, it was also time for another surprise.  Bobby knew his step-dad was prepared to give a toast, what he didn’t know was that he was going to make Bobby sing!  Apparently in his school days, Bobby played Danny in Grease.  Naturally, we all needed to see his performance and he absolutely killed it!  After that it was all about the dancing.  All of their guests loved to dance, but nobody as much as Jess and Bobby.  Those two had several dance-offs and threw out moves that I’d never before witnessed.  They definitely accomplished their goal of throwing a fun party!  But all good things must come to an end and while their guests lined up outside, Jess and Bobby had one last dance alone as newlyweds.  They then were sent off through a tunnel of pom poms and left for their honeymoon in Bora Bora.  I am so excited for them and am so glad that they chose me to capture their special day.  Congrats to Jess and Bobby!
