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 – 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!

Courtney and Tyler – Engagement Session at Globe Life Park and Grapevine Botanic Gardens

Oh my goodness!  I cannot get over how sweet Courtney and Tyler are!  I am a big sports fan, so I love it when my couple are too and incorporate it into their engagement sessions.  Courtney and Tyler are big Texas Rangers fans and so Globe Life Park was the perfect setting for their first location.  Courtney even had the cutest Rangers shoes to go with it!  They will also be having their rehearsal dinner at the park.  How fun is that?  Courtney and Tyler met at Texas A&M through Tyler’s roommates.  So girls, if you’re still in school go get involved in some study groups!  Maybe you’ll meet your future husband like Courtney did! 😉  Courtney and Tyler are getting married in January and I seriously can’t wait.  I already know their wedding day is going to be so much fun!

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!

Special thanks to all the great vendors!

Leah and Grant met while at Texas A&M (gig’em!) and are now living in the DFW for work.  These two were simply sweet together on our shoot.  We explored some of the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens before heading downtown for the second part of their session.  Can’t wait for their wedding next year!

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.

Lindsay and Keith – Engagement Portraits at Japanese Gardens and Kimbell Art MuseumFort Worth, TX

I love it when couples are not shy or afraid to be themselves in front of the camera!  It’s a hard thing to do but Lindsay and Keith nailed it!  They currently live in New York City but are getting married here in Fort Worth so we had a chance to do their engagement photos while they were in town.  I love that Keith wore the same suit that he wore on their first date.  I think it makes the photos that much more meaningful.  Lindsay and Keith cracked me up.  It is always a blast when we can all just joke around and laugh together, like when I caught Keith smelling Lindsay’s hair which is apparently an inside joke that has to do with one of their first dates.  I don’t know that I’m going to be able to let go of that one and will probably mention it and use it on their wedding day haha!  I am so excited for their big day in December.  It is going to be so much fun! Please enjoy some of my favorites from their Fort Worth engagement session.

Hillery and Juan – Wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel and City ClubFort Worth, TX

It may have been a tad windy but it was a beautiful day for Hillery and Juan’s wedding!  We started out at City Club for their first look where apparently the only thing making Juan nervous was me!  I may have made him wait a little longer than he probably wanted to to turn around and see his beautiful bride for the first time.  Hillery was absolutely stunning in her Neiman Marcus gown and if there were any nerves before, they were one once they laid eyes on each other.  We then headed over to Marty Leonard for their ceremony.  They were too cute sitting up there stealing quick looks at one another.  There was so much love and happiness in that chapel, I’m surprised it didn’t burst.  One thing I loved so much about these two is their love for their family.  They were all so close and Juan’s family even made the drive from Washington D.C. to Texas in 24 hours because their flight was cancelled!  But they made it and were able to watch Hillery and Juan become husband and wife.  Back over at City Club, Hillery and Juan were announced and I love how you can see the joy written all over their faces.  They enjoyed catching up with some of their closest friends and family and making sure that everyone knew how appreciated they were.  The night was filled with joy, laughter, love, friendship and dancing.  As the night came to an end, Hillery and Juan were surrounded on the dance floor by all of their guests popping streamers.  It truly was a beautiful day and I am so grateful they chose me to capture it!  Congratulations to Hillery and Juan!
