Hannah and Kevin – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

Even though the rain may have prevented the ceremony from being held outdoors, it let up just enough for us to finish up photos outside!  Then Hannah and Kevin partied the night away with Trey and the Tritones.  They were having a blast catching up with friends and family and rockin’ it out on the dance floor.  While all of the guests lined up to see them off, they stayed behind for their private last dance.  I always love private dances but the Ashton Depot is always such a beautiful backdrop for it.  Once they made their getaway, I met up with them in downtown to get a few more fun night photos!  Thank goodness the rain stayed away for the rest of the evening.  Congratulations to Hannah and Kevin!

Hannah and Kevin – Wedding Ceremony at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

When you live in Texas, you expect the weather to be pretty unpredictable.  Hannah and Kevin started off their wedding day with a beautiful, bright and sunny morning.  It seemed as though everything was going perfectly according to plan.  We were even running early!  It was about 5 minute before the ceremony was supposed to start when the sideways, monsoon rain started.  Not to worry though!  The amazing staff at Ashton Depot plus the always brilliant Justine of Justine’s Flowers were quick on their feet and came to the rescue.  They transformed the dance floor into the ceremony space within just a few minutes and we were back on track.  Even though the ceremony didn’t happen outside the way it was originally planned, everything was still incredibly beautiful.  At the end of the day Hannah and Kevin were husband and wife, rain or shine.  It was a great day!  Check out some of my favorites from their ceremony and check back soon for their reception!

Lauren and Russell – Wedding Reception at Hickory Street AnnexDallas, TX

I can’t tell you how much I love photographing a good party, and that’s exactly what Lauren and Russell had was a GOOD party.  The Memphis Soul band kept everyone out on the dance floor all night long, especially Lauren and Russell.  It is always so fun to see brides and grooms let loose and have fun with each other and their guests.  I have to be honest, I did not think I’d ever see the crazy side of Russell.  That guy knows how to have a good time, from dancing with his new bride, to singing karaoke on stage with his brother!  I already knew that Lauren and Russell were pretty much perfect for each other, but watching them in this setting just solidified it for me.  If you can’t be your goofy self with the ones you love then life can get pretty boring!  Everyone was having such a good time that they just didn’t want the night to end.  They begged the band to play one more song, but unfortunately all good things must come to an end.  All the guests lined up down the steps and sent Lauren and Russell off to begin their new life together.  It was such a fun night and I am so glad that I was able to be a part of it!  Congratulations to Lauren and Russell!

Lauren and Russell – Wedding Ceremony at Hickory Street AnnexDallas, TX

June in Texas is known for being pretty warm and the day before Lauren and Russell’s wedding was definitely a scorcher.  Luckily, their big day was cooled off by a little big of morning rain and some cloud coverage.  I loved getting to hang out with Lauren and her girls while they were getting ready.  Everyone was so chill and relaxed and just excited to be there!  Everything was just about as perfect as it could be (a big part of that is thanks to the amazing event coordinators, Maxwell + Grey!).  The bridesmaids wore beautiful gray dresses that brought out the nice green and blush colors of their flowers.  Lauren was absolutely stunning in her wedding dress that had a gorgeous illusion neckline.  I’m pretty sure she knocked Russell’s socks off when he saw her walking down the aisle toward him.  Lauren and Russell were married at Hickory Street Annex surrounded by many large windows, letting in rays of light and showing off the luscious greenery in the background, setting up the perfect scene.  As soon as they were pronounced husband and wife, Lauren threw her bouquet in the air in a fist pump of victory.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their beautiful ceremony and check back for more from their rockin’ reception!

Brooke & Justin – Wedding Ceremony at the Lonestar MansionBurleson, Texas

When I met Brooke last year, I knew that her and Justin had something special.  These two drove into town for a engagement session where I was able to meet Justin and hang out with these two to get to know them better.  Let me tell you, there smiles were infectious and you could see their love for each other.  Walking in on their wedding day I was prepared for all the happy tears that I knew would happen!  These two chose to have an intimate, elegant ceremony and reception at the Lonestar Mansion surrounded by close friends and family.  The morning was filled with sweet moments between Brooke and her mom while Justin and his guys hung out.  As Brooke walked down the aisle, Justin had tears rolling down his face!  After their emotional ceremony we took some photos in front of the mansion with their fun bridal party before heading to the reception.  Check out some of my favorite moments!

Natalie and Robert – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, TX

After the ceremony everyone headed over to Fort Worth Club for the reception.  Robert’s brother and Natalie’s sister gave some very sweet toasts about the kind of amazing people that Natalie and Robert are and you could definitely feel how much love they all have for one another.  After toasts it was time to party,  and what a party it was!  Thanks to the musical talents of the Limelight band,  the dance floor was constantly full.  And who knew that Robert could dance like that?  I sure didn’t!  These two, along with all of the friends and family, danced up a storm and had an absolute blast.  I am so sad that their day has come and gone, but I am so excited to be able to share their day with everyone.  I cannot wait to see what the future holds for these two.  Thanks for letting me part of your special day! Congratulations to Natalie & Robert!

Natalie and Robert – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel at TCUFort Worth, TX

I don’t think that I can truly describe the amount of emotion that Natalie and Robert’s big day actually had.  Not only for them and their families but for me as well!  I’ll just give you a hint by saying how excited I have been all year to photograph their engagements, then Natalie’s bridal and finally their wedding!  I was tearing up and full of emotion all day and then incredibly sad when it was over.  Now I am getting excited all over again because I get to share their amazing photos with the world!  Natalie and Robert are the kind of people that when you meet them, you are automatically friends.  I can’t tell you how happy it made me to talk to Natalie on the phone or through e-mail throughout the process of planning her wedding.  They both have this way of making everyone feel so special and loved, which made my job incredibly easy and more fun than it already is.  Natalie had the biggest smile on her face from the moment I arrived (and I’m sure before) to the moment they rode away in the carriage at the end of the night.  I know it was so hard for both of them to have to wait all day for the ceremony.  They both were so overcome with emotion, just waiting to finally get to see each other and become husband and wife.  Before the ceremony, the exchanged letters around a door.  As I placed Robert behind the door and told him I was going to get Natalie, he began to tear up knowing it was just minutes before he’d get to see her walk down the aisle.  As they finished reading each other’s notes, Natalie just started jumping up and down grinning ear to ear, so excited that the moment had finally arrived.  I don’t think I’ll ever forget the pure joy that was felt during their entire ceremony.  Afterward as they walked back up the aisle and out the chapel doors they just beamed at each other, jumping up and down, kissing, hugging and showing off their rings.  I cannot fully express how excited I am for these two.  Please enjoy my favorites from their Robert Carr ceremony and check back soon for their fun reception at The Fort Worth Club!

Melissa and Cody – Wedding at The OrchardAzle, TX

Melissa and Cody are married!  We started the day thinking the rain was going to keep us from being outside, but it did not!  Melissa and Cody chose to see each other before the ceremony and luckily it quit raining just in time!  They read notes they had written to each other and then Cody turned to see his bride for the first time and I think his breath may have literally been taken away.  They held the ceremony inside surrounded by their closest family and friends and said sweet vows to each other that made me tear up!  After they shared their first kiss, Cody smashed the glass (a Jewish tradition that they incorporated into their wedding) and they were on their way up the aisle as husband and wife!  Then it was time to celebrate and Melissa and Cody spent the rest of the evening enjoying chatting and dancing with all of the important people in their lives.  At the end of the night they spent one last dance together, taking in the day and each other.  They were then sent off to their new life through the glowing lights of sparklers.  Congratulations to Melissa and Cody!

Nicole & Jacob – Wedding Ceremony and Reception at the BRIKFort Worth, TX

Nicole & Jacob got married on a beautiful, if not slightly warm (Hello Texas!), day in Fort Worth.  I have had the privilege of shooting at BRIK before and I just love it.  With all the natural light and fun textures this is definitely a great space to get married.  She chose some great vendors to make this Texas themed wedding come alive.  The bridesmaids wore beautiful navy dresses that complimented the white, ivory, and light blue florals.  As the bride and groom kissed for the first time, family and friends rang cow bows!  How fun!  These two also had a very fun band play during their reception.  The Dick Beldings are a 90s cover band that one of the groomsman is a member of.  Not your average wedding band!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their wedding!

Erin and Colby – Wedding at Hollow HillWeatherford, TX

They say it’s good luck for it to rain on your wedding day.  Well, I say it’s even better luck for it to rain and then stop just in time for your outdoor ceremony!  That is exactly what happened for Erin and Colby.  It was raining off and on all morning and they were considering moving the ceremony inside, but it finally stopped and it was absolutely beautiful! The grass wasn’t even wet.  Erin looked stunning as she walked down the aisle arm in arm with her dad.  Her dress perfectly complimented her outdoor space and her boots were just the icing on the cake.  Colby teared up as he saw his bride walking toward him and when she arrived next to him, gave him the cutest smile.  With a backdrop of green trees behind them, they said their vows and became husband and wife!  It was the perfect setting.  Then it was time to party!  After dinner, the guests made their way into the barn for dancing and cake!  Erin and Colby spent the evening enjoying time with their friends and family just dancing until it was time for them to head out to begin their new life together!  Congratulations to Erin and Colby!
