Tori & Jake – Wedding Ceremony at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

What a beautiful night!  Tori and Jake held their reception at the amazing Ashton Depot.  It was lit all warm and glowy, which was the perfect backdrop as they shared their first dance under the chandeliers.  Tori’s dad gave a sweet toast and welcomed Jake into their family, then the party was on!  We had so much fun on the dance floor with this group!  Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and everyone lined up outside as Tori and Jake shared their private last dance.  They then were sent off to start their new lives together!  Thanks so much for letting me capture your big day! Congratulations!

Jeanette & JB – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

With all of the beautiful architecture and chandeliers, it’s hard not to love weddings at The Ashton Depot!  Jeanette and JB took full advantage of the outdoor space and had beautiful lounge furniture for guests to use during cocktail hour.  The purple color scheme continued on inside with the rich colors decorating each table.  With the big chandeliers hanging overhead and the beautiful doors as the perfect backdrop, guests had quite the view.  After cocktail hour, guests made their way to their seats and cheered as the newlyweds were introduced into the reception and their first dance.  After dinner it was time to get the party started, and with DJ Andy Austin at the controls it’s always a good party!  With the dance floor rocking so hard we only got a minute or two to step outside to get a few fun night shots of the outside of the building and downtown Fort Worth and then back to the party we went!  At the end of the night Jeanette and JB shared a private last dance before being sent off to start their new life!  Congratulations Jeanette and JB!

Jenn & Mitch – Wedding Reception at The Warwick Melrose HotelDallas, TX

Man oh man Jenn and Mitch know how to have a good time!  They, along with all of their guests, barely left the dance floor.  The moment (or moments I should say) of the night was when Mitch’s favorite song was being played.  I would have never guessed that “Like a Prayer” by Madonna, would have been it but man was it a hit!  Everyone got into it, so much so that for the encore/last song of the night it was played again!  I’ve never seen so many people get so excited to hear a song.  Everyone, including me, was singing and dancing to it!  It was just a fun day all around!  I am so honored to have been able to capture it. Congratulations to Jenn and Mitch!

Maddy & Luke – Ceremony & Reception at Shady Oaks Country ClubFort Worth, Texas

I had the chance to get to know this sweet couple at their engagement session in Fort Worth before their big day and let me tell you, these two are some of the sweetest people.   They got married on a beautiful, warm, spring day on the golf course at the Shady Oaks Country Club surrounded by friends and family.  Before they entered their reception we were able to take some fun photos on the golf course right before sunset.  Check out some of my favorite moments from their reception!

Time for the reception!!  Stephanie and PJ kicked off their reception with a receiving line so that they could personally thank each guest for coming.  They then moved into their first dance where they stayed as close as possible while swaying to the music.  It was so sweet!  The rest of the evening they were able to catch up with all of their friends and family from all over in between gettin down on the dance floor!  I know they loved being able to share their day with so many of the people that the love.  When the night was over we said goodbye to the newlyweds as they made their way toward the elevators.  It was such a great day and I am so glad that Stephanie and PJ chose met to capture it!

At their reception they had a special family Kimono displayed as well as 1,000 paper cranes that Celine’s mother made for the wedding.  Like I said, the dancing did not disappoint!  As soon as the music was turned up people started dancing!  I enjoyed being able to capture this special day for Celine & Wesley!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their reception.

Janey & Collin – Wedding Reception at The Carlisle RoomDallas, TX

After the ceremony everyone headed down to the Carlisle Room for the reception.  Janey and Collin shared their first dance and then Janey and her dad shared a sweet father daughter dance together.  Then it was time for the party to start!  Janey and Collin were able to spend the evening dancing and chatting with the people who mean the most to them.  They even had a big group of friends gathered on the dance floor watching the last bit of the UT game on an iphone!  There were some happy Longhorns on that dance floor and I think the fight song was played about 3 or 4 times.  At the end of the night Janey and Collin shared a private last dance and enjoyed a little time alone in their reception room just soaking up the day.  We then sent them on their way through a tunnel of sparklers!  It was a beautiful and perfect day and I am so grateful that they chose me to capture it and spend the day with them.  Congrats Janey and Collin!

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!
