Kelsey & Kal – Getting Ready and Ceremony at the Hilton and Piazza in the VillageMcKinney, Texas

I loved getting to know Kelsey and Kal during their engagement session and was super pumped for their big day! Here is how they met:

“Kal and I met at a recruiting company here in the Dallas, TX area. We sat in a cubicle next to each other for about a year and were strictly friends. One of our mutual friends invited us to the Eli Young Band concert and we haven’t been apart ever since. We have been dating a little over 3 1/2 years.”

Take a look at some of my favorite moments during the first part of their day!

Rachel & Jonathan – Wedding at Chandor GardensWeatherford, TX

Rachel and Jonathan had a beautiful, sunny day perfect for their Alice in Wonderland themed wedding!  They had a small and intimate wedding and reception at Chandor Gardens out in Weatherford and it was the perfect setting for what they were wanting.  Not only was the weather, day and location perfect but this sweet new family had so much beautiful emotion, I couldn’t help but tear up myself!  During the ceremony, Rachel and Jonathan both said vows to each other’s children and it was just the sweetest thing.  I loved witnessing this new family being formed.  After the ceremony we had the chance to go around the gardens for some fun photos where we got to get a little bit wet under the waterfall! I think some of my favorite moments (besides the vows) happened during the daddy daughter dances.  Rachel and her dad & Jonathan and his daughter.  Together with all of their closest friends and family, Rachel and Jonathan celebrated their marriage and their new family and when the night came to an end, the exited through a tunnel of sparklers underneath hanging teacups that decorated the pathway.  Congratulations Rachel and Jonathan!!

Magenta & Caleb – Wedding Portraits at The Kimbell Art Museum & Reception at The Petroleum ClubFort Worth, TX

Fort Worth holds a special place in Caleb and Magenta’s hearts.  They said,

“We looked for unique ways to make the wedding more “us.” We both have a deep admiration for the city of Fort Worth so we selected venues that really showcased everything we love about the city.”

What is more Fort Worth that Robert Carr Chapel on TCU’s campus and the Petroleum Club that has an amazing view of downtown?  In order to keep with their Fort Worth theme, we stopped over at the Kimbell Art Museum for some more fun wedding party photos!  I love it when I get a little extra time with my couples!  These guys were so much fun and too funny on the party bus.  They probably could have kept that party going on that bus if they wanted to.  After their first dance, Magenta and Caleb said hello to all of their guests who traveled from all over to be there to celebrate with them and then the party really got started!  As promised in the toasts, we got to see some of Magetna’s sweet sweet dance moves and she did not disappoint!  I was so sad to leave the party, but I made sure to get in a photo, myself, with Caleb and Magenta.  I am so grateful that they chose me to capture their special day.  Congratulations Magenta and Caleb!

Magenta & Caleb – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel at TCUFort Worth, TX

What a beautiful day for Magenta and Caleb’s wedding!  There are always so many factors and moving parts to a wedding day but what I love most is that at the end of the day, all that matters is the love that you have for each other.  I know Magenta and Caleb could not wait to become husband and wife and you can tell from their story just how patient they have been throughout their entire relationship.

“We first met while working together the fall of 2013. We worked on the same team and became good friends while working on various projects together. Our friendship continued after Magenta was transferred to Minneapolis for work and we soon began a long distance relationship from across the country. Via FaceTime and many weekend trips to see one another, we soon fell in love and hoped that we would soon live in the same state again sometime soon. In June of 2015, to everyone’s surprise, Magenta was transferred back to the DFW area allowing our relationship to enter a new phase now that we lived close to one another. After a few months of continuing our now close distance relationship, Caleb proposed to Magenta at the Gaylord Texan on Christmas Eve of 2016 in front of both of our families.”

I am so excited for these two and I can’t wait to see what the future brings them!

Hollis & Joey – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, TX

Hollis and Joey and all of their friends really know how to party.  Once the dancing began, it didn’t stop!  I think one of my favorite dancing moments was when Joey and all of his groomsmen did a little performance to a Back Street Boys song and then Hollis joined in right at the end.  There is also a tradition in Hollis’ family of playing the ZZ Top song, “La Grange”.  They had an inflatable alligator and all ended up dancing and rolling on the dance floor.  I’m not quite sure of the story behind this tradition but it was so much fun to watch!  Hollis and Joey danced up a storm with their friends and family and at the end of the night were sent off with streamers and a ride in a friend’s classic Mercedes.  I am so excited to share this fun wedding.  Congratulations to Hollis and Joey!

Hollis & Joey – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at All Saints Episcopal ChurchFort Worth, TX

Hollis and Joey’s big day was absolutely beautiful!  It was full of so much joy, emotion, laughter and fun. Hollis and Joey chose to do a first look, where they saw each other for the first time before the ceremony.  Their friends were so cute as they spied through the window to watch.  Hollis showed off her dress to her almost hubby and he gave a huge thumbs up.  I love first looks because they always seem to calm the nerves but at the same time bring out the excitement!  You know it’s getting real at that point and that you are about to marry the person of your dreams.  It was then time for the ceremony and everyone was in their place.  As it came time for Hollis to walk down the aisle I caught a glimpse of her in the stairwell, she was overcome with emotions, I could tell that she couldn’t wait to get down that aisle. It was one of my favorite moments of the night.  After a few moments of waiting with her sweet dad, the doors opened and she made her way to Joey.  It was a beautiful ceremony and now they are husband and wife!!  Check back for their fun Modern reception.

Lindsey & Kurt – Reception at the 4 ElevenFort Worth, Texas

Lindsey wore her mother’s wedding dress, but had some alterations to it to make it more modern.  I love it when couples incorporate their pairent’s weddings into their day!  After they entered the reception, Lindsey and Kurt started their first dance as husband and wife.  As the song ended Kurt picked her up and spun her around! Such a sweet gesture!  The party got started, and let me tell you, that dance floor was packed the entire night! Even Super Frog was on the dance floor!  Take a look at some of my favorite moments from their reception.

Lindsey & Kurt – Getting Ready & Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelFort Worth, Texas

Lindsey & Kurt are both graduates from TCU and when I first met them, I knew they would have a great wedding.  They day started off with Lindsey getting ready at the new venue, the 4 Eleven, which is amazing!  Lindsey and her dad shared a sweet first look in the courtyard where she received a beautiful pearl bracelet from her dad.  The couple got married at Robert Carr chapel surrounded by friends and family and even had a saber exit after the ceremony!  After they said farewell to guests they hopped into a vintage car that drove us to the stadium to get a few pictures before the reception.  Check out a few of my favorite pictures from the first part of their day!
