Diana & Kylan – Reception at the Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, Texas

It was easy to see where Diana got her dance moves from!  Diana and her father were busting moves the whole night and kept the party going!  The room was decorated beautifully which set the scene for this reception.  Check out some more of my favorite moments from Diana & Kylan’s big day!

Chandler & Nic – Reception at The OrchardAzle, Texas

After the first dance, Chandler danced with her father and let me tell you, there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.  As a photographer I love being able to capture these special moments like a father dancing with his daughter.  Chandler and Nic were on the dance floor the whole night but wanted to sneak outside to get some fun night portraiture photos.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the reception!

Laura Jean and Branden – Wedding Reception at Tower ClubDallas, Texas

After they were pronounced husband and wife no time was wasted and we hopped onto the party bus and headed toward the reception.  I always love riding on the bus with the bridal party, there is never a dull moment!  We arrived at Tower Club Dallas and Laura Jean and Branden were introduced and went into their first dance with Downtown Dallas behind them as a perfect backdrop.  The dance floor was packed all night long as everyone enjoyed the music from the Signed Sealed Delivered Band.  Laura Jean and Branden ended the night with a bang dancing and singing on stage with the band!  As the night ended we sent the newlyweds off on their honeymoon through a tunnel of gold pom poms to the elevators.  It was a fun day and I’m so glad that they chose me to capture their special moments!  Congratulations Laura Jean and Branden!

Lauren and Greg – Wedding at The Renaissance Worthington HotelFort Worth, Texas

It may have been a gloomy January day outside, but inside the ballrooms of the Worthington it was the exact opposite.  Lauren and Greg spent the day surrounded by family and friends as they prepared for their marriage and new life together.  They had a few minutes to themselves during their first look before beginning all of their wedding day events.  Then it was time for the signing of the Ketubah and wedding ceremony.  Lauren looked beautiful as she walked arm in arm with her parents to her future groom.  One thing that I loved about the Jewish ceremony was that the parents stood under the Chuppah with the couple.  What a wonderful way to watch your child be married!  Once they were pronounced husband and wife it was time to celebrate!  Thanks to Jamie and the rest of the team at Tami Winn Events, the ballroom was transformed into the winter wonderland that Lauren had her heart set on and everyone enjoyed the music by one of my favorite bands, Professor D!  It was so much fun to be out on the dance floor with everyone, especially during the Hora!  After all of the fun and dancing it was time to send the couple off to their new life together.  They were sent off through a tunnel of sparklers and taken away in a horse drawn carriage.  Congratulations to Lauren and Greg!

Kathleen & Dalton – Ceremony & Reception at Walnut Creek Country ClubMansfield, Texas

Kathleen and Dalton got married on a VERY chilly Sunday in January.   This sweet couple had their ceremony and reception at the Walnut Creek Country Club surrounded by their closest friends and family.  It was evident how much these two loved each other and their joy was contagious!  Here are a few of my favorites moments from their intimate wedding!

Shelby & Clifton – Reception at BrikFort Worth, TX

When you get a bunch of Aggies together, you know if will be a GREAT party!  To make a great dance party even better, throw in a fog machine and dancing becomes epic!  The dance floor was packed all night. Shelby’s family has a special tradition at weddings which includes the men huddling around her to sing her a song and then lift her up on a chair.  It was great!  Shelby and Clifton had a great sparkler farewell at the end of the night. Check out some of my favorite moments from this reception.

Sara and Matt – Wedding Reception at The Petroleum ClubFort Worth, TX

After the ceremony we headed downtown to the Petroleum Club where everyone was anxiously waiting the newlyweds.  The room was washed a beautiful purple with white and purple floral pieces by The Perfect Plan Events.  The bride and groom had their first dance as husband and wife and Sara had a special daddy daughter dance that was sung by her uncles.  Sara and Matt then joined all of their friends and family out on the dance floor and man do they have some mad dance skills!  You could tell everyone was having a blast and was sad to see the night end.  But it did have to end and we sent the Sara and Matt off to their honeymoon with a streamer farewell!  It has been such an honor getting to work with Sara, Matt and their friends and family.  I absolutely have loved getting to know them and I can’t wait to watch as they continue to grow their love and family!  Congratulations to Sara and Matt!

Carolyn & Kendall – Wedding and Reception at Grace Bible ChurchIntimate New Years Eve Wedding

Carolyn and Kendall got married on a crisp winter day at Grace Bible Church in Dallas.  I was so glad I was able to spend New Years Eve with this great couple and get to know them on their special day.  These two had a very sweet first look in the church courtyard where we were able to get some great photos of the two of them.  Check out some of my favorite moments from their day!

Tayler and Austin – Wedding ReceptionThe Springs - Anna, TX

After the ceremony it was time to party! Tayler and Austin were introduced and entered their reception down the grand staircase through a tunnel of their bridal party.  Everyone enjoyed catering by Babe’s Chicken and some Gelato from Paciugo and then got out on the dance floor.  Ya know, for some reason my grooms usually surprise me with their dance skills, but not Austin.  I was definitely expecting him to get into it and I was not disappointed!  I think they also did the most animated version of the Aggie War Hymn that I’ve witnessed in a while.  They and all of their guests did not want the night to end and I don’t blame them!  They were having too much fun out there on that dance floor.  But all good things must come to an end and Tayler and Austin said farewell to their guests through a shower of lavender and left to begin their new life together.  I have loved getting to know these two and photograph them on their special day.  Congratulations Austin and Tayler!

Molly and Sha – Wedding ReceptionWildcatter Ranch - Graham, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.comI’ve said it multiple times already but let me say it just one more time.  I absolutely adore Molly and Sha!  It always makes me so happy when I can consider my couples, my friends and I truly consider these two my friends.  They have a beautiful love and aren’t afraid to show it off in front of the camera.  It makes me one happy photographer when I can just capture moments and boy did they give me a ton of moments!  Before they began their first dance we were able to sneak away and get a few amazing photos that show off the gorgeous nature surrounding us.  Megan and I were squealing with joy at the beauty we were able to capture.  That’s how you know we love our job so much!  Molly and Sha began their first dance as husband and wife and it was as if they were the only two people out there.  They just soak each other up and forget about the world around them and that is one of the things I love so much about them.  I am so excited that I had the privilege of photographing their big day!  Congratulations Molly and Sha!
