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!

Nicole and Eric – Wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel and Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, Tx

What a beautiful day for a wedding!  Nicole and Eric were married at Marty Leonard Chapel in Fort Worth and it couldn’t have been more perfect.  They had a few sweet traditions like the lassoing of the rosary and the coin tradition.  Right before they were pronounced husband and wife, Eric’s kids were invited up to the altar for a special blessing on their new family.  It always warms my heart to see such a blessing and promise take place.  Nicole and Eric had a vintage car right outside of the chapel waiting to take them to their reception, so we got some dreamy photos with it!  Nicole and Eric had a few surprises up their sleeves at the reception.  First the guests were entertained with a mariachi band during dinner, then surprised Eric’s mom with her very own birthday cake!  During the father daughter dance, Nicole and her dad started off with a traditional dance and then busted out into a rap dance! It was so much fun and I loved how joyful Nicole and her dad looked sharing that moment together.  Nicole, Eric and their guests danced the night away until it was time to send them on their way!  We had so much fun celebrating with these two and wish them the best of luck!

Alexis & Joshua – Reception at the Omni HotelFort Worth, TX

This reception was a blast! With a great band AND a DJ, you know you are in for a good time!  After a sweet first dance, Alexis stepped on the dance floor with her dad for the father-daughter dance.  After the music started these two busted out into a fun choreographed dance that had everyone smiling!  I am so thankful that I was able to be a part of these two’s day.  They were such a fun and sweet couple to work with!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their beautiful reception at the Omni Hotel in Fort Worth.

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!

Allison and Logan – Wedding Reception at Piazza on the GreenMcKinney, TX

And the magic continues!!  Allison and Logan were introduced into their reception and went straight into their first dance as husband and wife.  Sticking with this Disney theme that we’ve started, it was like the ballroom scene right out of Beauty & The Beast with all of the warm lighting and chandeliers.  A true fairy tale moment!  They danced all night long and at one point Logan and his groomsmen did a surprise dance to the YMCA.  It was truly an enchanting night and I couldn’t have asked for a sweeter couple.  Thanks Allison and Logan for choosing me to capture your special day!

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!

Kailie & Brian – Wedding at Noah’s Event VenueRichardson, TX

Kailie and Brian are so much fun! They were married at Noah’s Event Venue in Richardson.  Kailie was absolutely stunning in her blush wedding gown and looked just radiant as she walked down the aisle arm and arm with her daddy.  The ceremony took place outside and was full of joy and laughter.  After vows were spoken, Kailie and Brian were pronounced husband and wife and high-fived this accomplishment once the reached the end of the aisle.  After the ceremony it was on to the party where the new couple showed everyone their compatibility with the newlywed game!  They went on to the bouquet toss and Kailie apparently was a basketball player in another life because she tossed her bouquet right into the chandelier for 2 points!  Impressive for not looking where she was throwing!  Kailie and Brian made their grand exit through a tunnel of sparklers and then headed back inside to party until 1:00 in the morning!  Like I said, they are such a fun couple and I am excited to share their big day!  Congratulations to Kailie and Brian!

Cortni & Jason – Wedding Reception at BRIK VenueFort Worth, TX

Now that they were officially husband and wife, it was time to celebrate!  We headed over to The BRIK Venue where the upstairs portion was decorated in beautiful greenery on long farm tables and hanging from the chandeliers.  Cortni’s dad, the maid of honor and best man all gave such moving and lovely toasts that I wouldn’t be surprised if everyone in that room teared up a little bit because I know I did!  After dinner and toasts it was time for cake cutting and dancing!  Everyone was having a blast from the past to the 80’s music played by The Spazmatics.  Cortni and Jason were right at home out on the dance floor and absolutely killed it when asked to do an interpretive dance of their love story!  Not everyone could pull that off but they sure did!  Naturally, nobody wanted the night to end but grabbed their sparklers and headed outside while Cortni and Jason had their private last dance.  They were so cute in those few minutes they had to themselves and just held on to each other as if they didn’t want the night to end.  They then made their way through the tunnel of sparklers to begin their honeymoon and their new life as husband and wife.  I am so incredibly blessed to have had the opportunity to work with Cortni, Jason and their sweet families.  Congratulations you two!

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!
