Isabella & Nic – Wedding Reception

These two know how to dance!  Their first dance with full of swinging and laughter and had everyone smiling.  They had a knife dance, which is a Persian tradition where they couple has to pay for the cake knife that is stolen by the guests.  They had a great mix of Colombian and Persian music which had the dance floor packed all night.  Here are some of my favorite moments!

Eve & Derek – Ceremony and Reception at Stonegate MansionFort Worth, Texas

This couple is dear to my heart!  Eve and Derek got married on a beautiful (if a little windy) day under a gorgeous chuppah.  I have know Eve for several years now because I used to watch her sweet son.  I just love that she has found Derek and tied the knot!  These two had a beautiful Christian and Jewish ceremony at the Stonegate Mansion in Fort Worth surrounded by friends and family.  Check out some of my favorite moments from their day.

Hillery and Juan – Wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel and City ClubFort Worth, TX

It may have been a tad windy but it was a beautiful day for Hillery and Juan’s wedding!  We started out at City Club for their first look where apparently the only thing making Juan nervous was me!  I may have made him wait a little longer than he probably wanted to to turn around and see his beautiful bride for the first time.  Hillery was absolutely stunning in her Neiman Marcus gown and if there were any nerves before, they were one once they laid eyes on each other.  We then headed over to Marty Leonard for their ceremony.  They were too cute sitting up there stealing quick looks at one another.  There was so much love and happiness in that chapel, I’m surprised it didn’t burst.  One thing I loved so much about these two is their love for their family.  They were all so close and Juan’s family even made the drive from Washington D.C. to Texas in 24 hours because their flight was cancelled!  But they made it and were able to watch Hillery and Juan become husband and wife.  Back over at City Club, Hillery and Juan were announced and I love how you can see the joy written all over their faces.  They enjoyed catching up with some of their closest friends and family and making sure that everyone knew how appreciated they were.  The night was filled with joy, laughter, love, friendship and dancing.  As the night came to an end, Hillery and Juan were surrounded on the dance floor by all of their guests popping streamers.  It truly was a beautiful day and I am so grateful they chose me to capture it!  Congratulations to Hillery and Juan!

Cati & Jeff – Ceremony & Reception at MopacFort Worth, Texas

From the beginning it was made known to me that Cati shared a special bond with her sisters (known as the Hall Girls).   Their parents are no longer with them, but let me tell you, that did not put a damper on this day.  These girls share a huge bond, and it was such a sweet moment when her sisters walked Cati down the aisle.  Cati & Jeff said “I Do” at Mopac Event Center which is a venue that opened last year.  Here are some of my favorite moments from their day!

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 – Ceremony at the Omni HotelFort Worth, TX

I can’t tell you how excited I was to photograph this wedding.  I met Alexis and Joshua many months back when I did their engagement session in Fort Worth.  They were naturals in front of the camera and and had a natural joy about them.  These two decided to tie the knot at the Omni Hotel in Dallas on a windy Texas day.  Before the ceremony Alexis had a first look with her dad that was a super sweet moment.   Her dad wore some awesome cuff links with pictures of him and Alexis from when she was a toddler.  Love it!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

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!
