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!

Magenta and Caleb – Engagement Session at Trinity Park and Downtown Fort WorthFort Worth, TX

I know I say  it a lot but it’s always true, I had so much fun hanging out with Magenta and Caleb!  They love coffee so we stopped in Avoca Coffee shop just down the street for a quick cup and a few fun photos.  We then headed over to Trinity park where Caleb brought out one of the many signs he used to propose to Magenta back at Christmas.  They were just too cute and giggly that I couldn’t help but smile while I was around them.  We ended our session in Downtown Fort Worth.  Magenta and Caleb really love the look and the architecture so it was the perfect place especially since their reception will be held down there next year!  Check out their fun engagement session!

Cati & Jeff – Ceremony & Reception at MopacFort Worth, Texas

From the beginning it was made known to me that Cati shared a special bond with her sisters (known as the Hall Girls).   Their parents are no longer with them, but let me tell you, that did not put a damper on this day.  These girls share a huge bond, and it was such a sweet moment when her sisters walked Cati down the aisle.  Cati & Jeff said “I Do” at Mopac Event Center which is a venue that opened last year.  Here are some of my favorite moments from their day!

Jenn and Mitch – Engagement Session at Klyde Warren Park and White Rock LakeDallas, TX

I am beyond excited to share this cute couple’s engagement session!  I had so much fun hanging with Jenn, Mitch and their dogs Sasha and Zoe!  I have so many wonderful couples and Jenn and Mitch are definitely no exception.  They are some of the sweetest people and their two dogs were absolutely precious. We had a blast getting Sasha and Zoe in some of the photos.  They were so good at posing for the camera but also so playful at the same time.  They all completely melted my heart.  Jenn and Mitch will be getting married in October and I cannot wait for their big day!

Brooke & Robby – Reception at the Piazza in the VillageColleyville, Texas

On rare occasions does it occur that you get the most perfect sunset light, but let me tell you folks, we got it!  After the ceremony we took some fun wedding party photos outside and just as the sun was setting and creating a wonderful golden glow I was able to snap some photos of Brooke and Robby!  They will make you swoon, and if that isn’t perfect enough the wind caught Brooke’s veil in one of the photos which created a gorgeous moment!  Check out that moment and their reception below!

Sarah and Tyler – Wedding Reception at The Carlisle RoomDallas, TX

We had so much fun celebrating with Sarah and Tyler!  They held their reception at The Carlisle Room in Dallas and it was so beautiful!  There were many Razorback fans in the crowd so after cake cutting they had to do the hog call!  I always love seeing the different school traditions of my couples.  It’s so much fun!  The dance floor stayed pretty packed all night long and the crowd was loving the Inversion Band.  Sarah had the chance to try her skills out on one of the band member’s trumpets and one of the bridesmaids did a saxophone duet with her plastic blow up sax.  It truly was a fun party!  But, all good things must come to an end, sadly.  As all of their guests gathered outside, Sarah and Tyler enjoyed one last private dance before heading off on their honeymoon.  They were sent off through a cloud of flutterfetti and left to begin their new life together!  Congratulations Sarah and Tyler!

Sarah and Tyler – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at St. Thomas AquinasDallas, TX

The good weather luck continues! It rained most of our drive to Dallas and just as it was looking like it would still be raining for Sarah and Tyler’s first look, the skies cleared up. The rain lightened up and stopped long enough for us to get all of the photos we wanted outside. All of the family and bridal party were such troopers as we stood out in the crazy wind taking photos!  Sarah and her girls really knew how to make that wind work in their favor!  It was time for the ceremony and Sarah looked so beautiful as she walked to the aisle on her dad’s arm with her mom’s veil in her hair.  She was absolutely beaming!  Sarah and Tyler exchanged their vows and were pronounced husband and wife and I know that at that moment all of the nerves were lifted from their shoulders.  It was time to celebrate! Enjoy some of my favorites from their first look and ceremony and check back for their reception at The Carlisle Room!

Janey and Collin – Engagement Session at Dallas Arboretum and White Rock LakeDallas, TX

With all of the threat of rain and having to reschedule once before, I was a little worried we would have to postpone again!  Luckily everything cleared and up and I met up with Janey and Collin at the Arboretum and it was a beautiful day!  I loved getting to hang out with these two.  They are the cutest and so incredibly happy.  It is a difficult thing not to smile when you are around them! Their love and happiness is definitely infections, my face hurt after their session from all of the smiling!  After the Arboretum, we headed over to White Rock Lake which is where Collin proposed to Janey when he told her that he wanted to take her to look at a sailboat.  Janey and Collin are a genuinely sweet couple and I am beyond excited to photograph their wedding this September!

Amanda and John – Wedding Reception at Union Station DallasDallas, TX

After the ceremony everyone headed over to Union Station for the party.  And what a party it was!  The ballroom was like something out of a fairy tale decorated with amazing floral by Bella Flora and the styling skills of Jenna with Pop Parties.  Amanda and John entered and had their first dance as husband and wife then the party really got started.  With Emerald City on the stage there is no keeping people off of the dance floor and as always they were absolutely killing it and the dancing lasted all night!  Amanda and John were invited up onto the stage and sang a few songs with the band and all of their guests.  Everyone was having the time of their lives!  Of course, all good things must come to an end and the horn section led the guests down the elevator so Amanda and John could have a private moment before leaving.  During their private time, they asked their grandparents to join them in a dance.  It was the sweetest thing!  Amanda and John then made their way down the escalators and out into the cloud of flutterfetti and were off to start their new life together!  Congratulations Amanda and John!
