Maddy & Luke – Ceremony & Reception at Shady Oaks Country ClubFort Worth, Texas

I had the chance to get to know this sweet couple at their engagement session in Fort Worth before their big day and let me tell you, these two are some of the sweetest people.   They got married on a beautiful, warm, spring day on the golf course at the Shady Oaks Country Club surrounded by friends and family.  Before they entered their reception we were able to take some fun photos on the golf course right before sunset.  Check out some of my favorite moments from their reception!

Stephanie & PJ – Wedding Reception at Renaissance Dallas at Plano Legacy West HotelPlano, TX

Time for the reception!!  Stephanie and PJ kicked off their reception with a receiving line so that they could personally thank each guest for coming.  They then moved into their first dance where they stayed as close as possible while swaying to the music.  It was so sweet!  The rest of the evening they were able to catch up with all of their friends and family from all over in between gettin down on the dance floor!  I know they loved being able to share their day with so many of the people that the love.  When the night was over we said goodbye to the newlyweds as they made their way toward the elevators.  It was such a great day and I am so glad that Stephanie and PJ chose met to capture it!

Stephanie & PJ – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at Renaissance Dallas at Plano Legacy West HotelPlano, TX

I am so excited to share Stephanie and PJ’s big day!!  They were married at a brand new hotel in Plano, Renaissance West Legacy, and were the first wedding there!  For their first look it was so much fun to have such cool backgrounds to use with all of the different artwork and architecture.  Stephanie looked absolutely amazing her in her wedding dress and it had a very faint blush skirt, which I loved!!  I think PJ fell speechless when he turned around and saw her for the first time, his jaw nearly dropped to the floor.  They held their ceremony up on the pool deck overlooking the city below and it was a beautiful view.  It was the perfect place for Stephanie and PJ to have their wedding especially since PJ’s family is from New York.  They were able to spend time with the people they love most and give them an cool and funky Texan place to stay.  Check back soon for photos from the reception!!

At their reception they had a special family Kimono displayed as well as 1,000 paper cranes that Celine’s mother made for the wedding.  Like I said, the dancing did not disappoint!  As soon as the music was turned up people started dancing!  I enjoyed being able to capture this special day for Celine & Wesley!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their reception.

Celine & Wesley – Ceremony at Texas Discovery GardenDallas, Texas

I had the pleasure of getting to know Celine and Wesley at their engagement session and was super excited for their big day!  They got married in front of the fountain at the Texas Discovery Gardens with gorgeous evening light streaming through the trees.  Celine is from Hawaii so there were fun little hints of Hawaii throughout their day.  Their wedding party was definitely a fun group and I had a feeling it would be a dancing crowd.  They didn’t disappoint!  Stay tuned for their reception!

Janey & Collin – Wedding Reception at The Carlisle RoomDallas, TX

After the ceremony everyone headed down to the Carlisle Room for the reception.  Janey and Collin shared their first dance and then Janey and her dad shared a sweet father daughter dance together.  Then it was time for the party to start!  Janey and Collin were able to spend the evening dancing and chatting with the people who mean the most to them.  They even had a big group of friends gathered on the dance floor watching the last bit of the UT game on an iphone!  There were some happy Longhorns on that dance floor and I think the fight song was played about 3 or 4 times.  At the end of the night Janey and Collin shared a private last dance and enjoyed a little time alone in their reception room just soaking up the day.  We then sent them on their way through a tunnel of sparklers!  It was a beautiful and perfect day and I am so grateful that they chose me to capture it and spend the day with them.  Congrats Janey and Collin!

Janey & Collin – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at Holy Trinity Catholic ChurchDallas, TX

Janey and Collin are married!  We began the day at The Carlisle Room where the reception would later be.  You could feel the excitement in the air as we drew closer to first look and ceremony time.  I think I made Collin anxious when I made him wait a little longer to turn around and see his bride for the first time.  When he did finally get to turn around, his jaw dropped seeing Janey in her dress.  She looked absolutely perfect and I think it was well worth the wait I put him through.  These two are the absolute cutest and I had been looking forward to their day for a long time!  We were able to get some beautiful romantic photos of them and some fun wedding party before heading to the church.   I loved how much of a fun and sweet group of friends they had in their bridal party.  It really made my job even easier!  We got to the church and it was time for the ceremony.  As Janey walked down the aisle on her dad’s arm, Collin looked like he had just seen her for the first time all over again.  I love how you can see his face light up every time he sees her.  The ceremony began and it was so beautiful, complete with a few giggles and sweet stolen glances at one another.  Before we knew it, they were pronounced husband and wife and making their way back up the aisle!  I can’t imagine it being any more perfect! Please check out some of my favorites from their first look and ceremony and check back soon for their fun reception at The Carlisle Room!

Abby & Casey – Wedding at The Fort Worth Club

Abby and Casey are married!  These two met playing soccer years ago and were married in the beautiful terrace of the Fort Worth Club complete with a fabulous view of Downtown Fort Worth.  Abby was escorted down the aisle by her mom and dad and she couldn’t have looked more stunning!  I love when ceremonies are full of memorable moments and Abby and Casey had several sweet, funny and tender moments.  During their vows Casey sweetly wiped a tear from Abby’s eye and just melted my heart.  After lighting the unity candle they were pronounced husband and wife and it was time to party!!  Everyone enjoyed cocktail hour with a fabulous all female mariachi band and then were all escorted into the ballroom to await the newlyweds.  Abby and Casey shared their first dance under the glowing light of the chandelier and then barely left the dance floor all night!  Nobody wanted to leave the dance floor, but all good things must come to an end.  Everyone gathered in front of the elevator and sent Abby and Casey off to start their new life through a tunnel of bubbles.  I’m so excited to share their day and so glad they chose me to capture it!

Nicki & Kenny – Wedding Reception at The Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, TX

Nicki and Kenny’s day went by way too fast, but was oh so much fun!  After the ceremony we finished up with their wedding party and had some fun with their photos.  Then we headed back to Fort Worth Club for the party!  After the dances and toasts, Nicki and Kenny had a fun way to include all of their guests in photos.  They did a selfie dash!  They went around to each table and each table thought of a fun pose to do with the couple.  It was such a great way for them to have a photo with everyone!  After that they, along with their friends and family, danced up a storm! We couldn’t believe it when it was already time to send them off on their honeymoon!  Before rushing off, they had one last private dance and then made their way to the elevators.  Everyone was sad to see it end but so excited to send the newlyweds off to begin their new lives!  Congratulations Nicki and Kenny!

Nicki & Kenny – Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelFort Worth, TX

I am so excited to share Nicki and Kenny’s special day!  We started the day at The Fort Worth Club and I don’t think Nicki stopped smiling all morning.  Even when the tears started, she was still wearing a smile!  I absolutely loved the energy and happiness that I felt just during getting ready! Kenny loves Superman, so Nicki got him some fun Superman socks to surprise him with and to go with his Superman cuff links!  Once I saw Nicki’s dress, it was exactly what I pictured her wearing and she looked absolutely stunning.  Kenny even started coming up with all the different words he could think of to describe his new wife’s beauty.  It was so cute.  During the ceremony you could really feel the love between these two as Nicki so elegantly wiped tears from her eyes and Kenny could not keep his eyes off of her.  I am so happy to share some of my favorites from their big day and be sure to check back for more from their reception!
