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!

Courtney & Tyler – Wedding Reception at Van Cliburn Recital HallFort Worth, TX

After the ceremony we took a little pit stop at Bass Hall for a few more fun photos!  Courtney and Tyler then made their big entrance and it was time for the party to begin and boy, was it a party!  It’s always fun to see new and different traditions at weddings.  Courtney and Tyler are Aggies and so were a lot of their guests, so they asked all of their Aggie guests to bring their class rings to Tyler’s grooms cake for a photo.  It was neat to see so many rings together, not to mention a little nerve wracking having so much gold in one spot!  Courtney, Tyler and all of their friends and family sure know how to have a good time.  I don’t think that they dance floor was ever empty!  However, all good things must come to an end and we sent the newlyweds off to their Jamaica honeymoon through a tangled web of streamers.  It was a pretty perfect day and I’m so grateful that Courtney and Tyler trusted me to capture it for them.  Congratulations to Courtney and Tyler!

Alicia & Kyle – Wedding Ceremony & ReceptionMansfield, TX

Alicia and Kyle got married! I knew these two were a compassionate and loving couple from the first time I met them. They are genuinely interested in building each other (and everyone else) up and supporting one another.  It was adorable to see them almost always holding hands in between the excitement and business of the day. Anyone in attendance can tell you it was a sweet and  emotional day for everyone, but especially Alicia and Kyle. It was great to see them tie the knot among family and so many friends and I am grateful to have been a part of it. Check out some of their special moments from the wedding day below.

Lindsay & Keith – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, TX

Lindsay and Keith had their reception at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.  The Modern is absolutely one of my favorite places and their reception was made even more special with some personal touches like Lindsay’s sister and brother-in-law singing their first dance song.

“My sister and brother-in-law (Liz and Parker or “The Double Whiskey Straits”) played our first dance song (Queen’s You’re my best friend) and did a mini-set later on in the night. It was really awesome to continue the sister tradition of choosing a Queen song for a first dance (Liz & Parker had Queen’s Fat Bottomed Girls as their first dance) and special because they are so musically talented and it was fun to show em off.”

One thing I always love about the Modern is getting to spend some alone time with my couples in the gallery.  It makes for some amazing photos and some well deserved alone time for Lindsay and Keith.  They were also such troopers by letting me take them outside in the freezing cold to get some photos with the twinkles lights in the trees. The rest of the night was spent catching up with friends and dancing like crazy people on the dance floor.

We had so much fun celebrating with Lindsay, Keith and their families.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their Modern reception.  Congratulations Lindsay and Keith!

Ali & Caleb – Wedding Reception at The Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, TX

What a fun day!  Ali & Caleb’s ceremony was fantastic and now it’s time to party and celebrate all of the little moments that led to this moment!  Ali tells us about the best moment (the proposal!)  in her own words.

“It was a cold and rainy weekend in February and I was down in Austin visiting Caleb. He had planned for us to go to a winery with two of our friends Amy and Henry that evening. We were to pick Amy and Henry up from Camp Lucy to head to the winery and get our tasting on. When we arrived Amy immediately sent Caleb away to do “work” while we could chat. While I was chowing down on a cookie, Amy asked if I would be interested in seeing new developments on the property at Camp Lucy. We were touring the bridal suite and she was asking me if I had any idea of where I would want my wedding to be one day. I pointed to my left hand and said “I have no ring, so not yet” (little did I know) Amy asked if I wanted to go see the new benches in Ian’s Chapel- I thought it odd but I obliged. As she led me up the stairs to the chapel I started to hear music, when we approached the chapel doors she swung them open and there Caleb stood at the end of the aisle of the church surrounded by candles and rose petals. Caleb got down on one knee and the rest is a blur. (I obviously said YES!) I somewhat caught my breath and walked outside to a photographer who was there to take pictures of our special day, she snapped away as I was still blown away that such an amazing man just asked me to be his wife.

Caleb took me to another venue on Camp Lucy’s property where there were flowers, pictures a fire and every romantic thing I could dream up. As we were chatting (really, I was crying like a baby) my Mom and Dad walked through the door followed by my sweet brother Ben, Lauren, and some of my best friends. I was so excited the tears started to flow even more. It was so perfect. Later that evening after the champagne was popping, Caleb ushered us all to his parents’ home where they threw us the most incredible engagement party. However, sweet Caleb was not done yet. He told me that night there would be another engagement party waiting for me when I returned home to Dallas. When I arrived back in Dallas on Sunday all my best friends were waiting to celebrate with us. It was an absolute dream; I cannot wait to Marry Caleb. I am still blown away at how sweet the Lord has been to me-I am lucky to be gaining a man who seeks The Lord fervently and loves me with all that he has. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him!”

I absolutely adore Ali and Caleb and had so much fun celebrating their love with all of their family and friends.  They had one heck of a reception and danced all night long!  Congratulations to Ali and Caleb!

Emily & Tyler – Reception at The Grand IvoryLeonard, Texas

These two said their vows at sunset (dreamy, I know!) and then entered their beautifully decorated reception!  After Emily and Tyler’s first dance, Emily surprised everyone with a very fun Father-Daughter choreographed dance!  A live band kept the party going all night until the couple exited with a sparkler exit!  Here are some of my favorite moments from their reception!
