Rachel & Jonathan – Wedding at Chandor GardensWeatherford, TX

Rachel and Jonathan had a beautiful, sunny day perfect for their Alice in Wonderland themed wedding!  They had a small and intimate wedding and reception at Chandor Gardens out in Weatherford and it was the perfect setting for what they were wanting.  Not only was the weather, day and location perfect but this sweet new family had so much beautiful emotion, I couldn’t help but tear up myself!  During the ceremony, Rachel and Jonathan both said vows to each other’s children and it was just the sweetest thing.  I loved witnessing this new family being formed.  After the ceremony we had the chance to go around the gardens for some fun photos where we got to get a little bit wet under the waterfall! I think some of my favorite moments (besides the vows) happened during the daddy daughter dances.  Rachel and her dad & Jonathan and his daughter.  Together with all of their closest friends and family, Rachel and Jonathan celebrated their marriage and their new family and when the night came to an end, the exited through a tunnel of sparklers underneath hanging teacups that decorated the pathway.  Congratulations Rachel and Jonathan!!

Magenta & Caleb – Wedding Portraits at The Kimbell Art Museum & Reception at The Petroleum ClubFort Worth, TX

Fort Worth holds a special place in Caleb and Magenta’s hearts.  They said,

“We looked for unique ways to make the wedding more “us.” We both have a deep admiration for the city of Fort Worth so we selected venues that really showcased everything we love about the city.”

What is more Fort Worth that Robert Carr Chapel on TCU’s campus and the Petroleum Club that has an amazing view of downtown?  In order to keep with their Fort Worth theme, we stopped over at the Kimbell Art Museum for some more fun wedding party photos!  I love it when I get a little extra time with my couples!  These guys were so much fun and too funny on the party bus.  They probably could have kept that party going on that bus if they wanted to.  After their first dance, Magenta and Caleb said hello to all of their guests who traveled from all over to be there to celebrate with them and then the party really got started!  As promised in the toasts, we got to see some of Magetna’s sweet sweet dance moves and she did not disappoint!  I was so sad to leave the party, but I made sure to get in a photo, myself, with Caleb and Magenta.  I am so grateful that they chose me to capture their special day.  Congratulations Magenta and Caleb!

Hollis & Joey – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, TX

Hollis and Joey and all of their friends really know how to party.  Once the dancing began, it didn’t stop!  I think one of my favorite dancing moments was when Joey and all of his groomsmen did a little performance to a Back Street Boys song and then Hollis joined in right at the end.  There is also a tradition in Hollis’ family of playing the ZZ Top song, “La Grange”.  They had an inflatable alligator and all ended up dancing and rolling on the dance floor.  I’m not quite sure of the story behind this tradition but it was so much fun to watch!  Hollis and Joey danced up a storm with their friends and family and at the end of the night were sent off with streamers and a ride in a friend’s classic Mercedes.  I am so excited to share this fun wedding.  Congratulations to Hollis and Joey!

Lizzie & Caleb – Reception at the Modern Art Museum of Fort WorthFort Worth, Texas

I love that their proposal started at the Modern Art Museum and that is where their wedding day ended!  Lizzie’s parents surprised the couple with an Elvis singer during the reception who came and sang with the band for a few songs!  Everyone jammed out to some old jams wearing Elvis shades as well which was such a fun detail!  This was such a fun night!  Congrats Lizzie & Caleb!

Tory & Harrison – Reception at the Piazza on the GreenMcKinney, Texas

After the ceremony we took some wedding party photos before they entered their reception.  Tory and Harrison both did voice overs (where they say a sweet message) to their parents before the parent dances which had everyone tearing up!  Even me!  You can see more of the travel theme (I mean look at that cake!) in some of their detail photos.  I am so thankful I had the opportunity to photograph their big day.  Hope you enjoy some of my favorite moments from their reception!

This reception was FUN!  DJ Rod Baker kept the dance floor packed the whole night.  Towards the end of the night all the Aggies circled up to do the War Hymn, one of my favorite traditions!  Leah and Grant said farewell to all their guests after a very sweet and emotional private last dance. Check out my favorite moments from their day!
