RoseAnn & Ross – Wedding Reception at The Renaissance WorthingtonFort Worth, TX

RoseAnn and Ross are now husband and wife and it is time to party!  After the ceremony all of their family and bridal party greeted and congratulated them while guests cleared the chapel.  We had some time for Ross and RoseAnn to be alone for the first time as a married couple and then it was on to the reception!  They had a few more special moments up their sleeves for the reception.  RoseAnn changed into her special red boots and her daddy helped her put them on before going into their father daughter dance.  Ross and his mom then shared a dance together and RoseAnn reserved a special dance with her brother.  I just love how close they all are!  Ross had a cake shaped like the Ole’ Miss football field and it was fun to hear them scream their chant.  Guests enjoyed dancing all night to the musical talents of It’s Your Night Entertainment’s Jeremiah Brinckley.  Not only is he a fabulous DJ, but he sings too!!  It was a fabulous night but all good things must come to an end.  While all of their family and friends gathered in the hall to see them off, Ross and RoseAnn shared one last private dance together.  They then were sent off to their honeymoon through a tunnel of shimmering red pom poms!  Congratulations to RoseAnn and Ross!

RoseAnn & Ross – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelFort Worth, TX

It seems like just yesterday that I was meeting RoseAnn and taking her bridal portraits, and now she is married!  When I first talked with RoseAnn about her wedding day and her plans, she told me about how she is very sentimental and about the meaningful things that would be happening.  I, also being a very sentimental person, got really excited.  RoseAnn is very close with her family and so she had many things at her wedding that had special meaning to her and different family members. Her shoes were her wedding colors and had their names and wedding date printed on the inside. She wore her grandmother’s jewelry.  Her brother gave her a beautiful charm bracelet that he placed on her wrist before they left for the church.  As she walked down the aisle arm in arm with her dad, she held a bouquet of yellow roses because her dad calls her “his yellow rose of Texas”.  How sweet is all of that?    Don’t worry!  She didn’t leave her new hubby out.  She had a brand new perfume specifically for her wedding day and anniversaries that she wore.  They say that you can associate memories with certain smells and what better way to remind you of your wedding day than a new scent?  She also wrote Ross a letter that he read right before the ceremony that he can always have and look back on.  I could go on and on but I think I’ll let the photos finish telling the story from here.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their special day and check back soon for their reception!

Erika & Joel – Wedding Reception at The OrchardAzle, TX

After the ceremony it was time to party!  I loved that Erika and Joel incorporated their favorite fandoms into their decor as cake toppers!  Everything from Justice League, to Harry Potter were present and it was awesome.  After cake cutting, toasts and a little bit of dancing it was time for the bouquet and garter.  Now, I have to say I don’t know that I’ve ever seen a dad monitor his new son-in-law during the removal of the garter, but Erika’s dad made sure that he had Joel in check.  Not to worry, Joel didn’t break a sweat and removed the garter with ease.  The rest of the evening flew by in a flash and before we knew it, it was time to say goodbye.  After a sweet private dance, Erika and Joel made their way to their getaway car surrounded by family, friends and sparklers.  I’m so happy for these two and can’t wait to see what the future brings them (and Franklin)!

Erika & Joel – Wedding Ceremony at The OrchardAzle, TX

After 8 years together these high school sweethearts are finally married!!  Erika and Joel were married out at The Orchard in Azle.  It was a beautiful day and Erika looked stunning as she walked down the aisle on her dad’s arm, wearing a veil made from her mother’s dress.  Joel and Erika were so cute during their sand ceremony as they giggled and smiled at one another in pure happiness.  I think everyone was anxious for these two to tie the knot, but I think Franklin, their ring bearer Pug, might have been the most excited.  Your wedding day just isn’t complete without your best friend and Franklin was there to support his humans the whole way through!  Congrats to Erika and Joel!  To see more photos of Franklin and their reception check back soon!

Caitlin & Eric – Reception at BRIKFort Worth, Texas

We were able to slip outside during dinner for a few minutes to capture some fun photos of just Caitlin and Eric just before sunset. They are seriously so cute!  Instead of a cake, these two chose to serve custard which is a fun twist to the normal tradition.  After their sweet first dance and dinner, the open dancing started and the dance floor stayed packed the whole night.  Here are some of my favorite moments from their reception!

Caitlin & Eric – Getting Ready and Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelFort Worth, Texas

I had the chance to get to know Caitlin during her bridals (stay tuned for those!) and knew that whoever she was marrying had to be as sweet as she was.  Caitlin & Eric met at work, and they really are such a great couple together.  They chose to do a first look outside at BRIK and Eric’s reaction is priceless!  We took some fun wedding party photos at BRIK before heading over to Robert Carr Chapel for the couple to say “I Do.”  Check out some of my favorite moments from the beginning of their day!

Kelly & Chris – Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel Reception at Historic 512Fort Worth, Texas

Kelly and Chris are as sweet as they come.  This day was filled with so many special moments with friends and family.  Kelly’s father walked her down the aisle at the beautiful Robert Carr Chapel and you can just see the look of love on Chris’ face!  Their reception was held at the Historic 512 and featured a fun swing band.  There was not a single dry eye in the venue after Kelly’s father gave a toast welcoming Chris into the family!  Thanks for letting me capture your sweet day!

Jessica & Sidney – Reception at McDavid StudioFort Worth, Texas

These two had a great reception full of dancing and laughter.  Dancing is by far one of my favorite times during a wedding because there is so much energy and people can just let loose!  Jessica and Sidney shared a sweet last dance before leaving with a streamer exit!  It was such a joy photographing this great couple!  Take a look at some of my favorite moments.

Jessica & Sidney – Getting Ready and Ceremony at St. Patrick CathedralFort Worth, Texas

Jessica and Sidney met in highschool but never dated.  It wasn’t until senior year of college that these two reconnected and started dating!  These two chose to get ready in downtown Fort Worth surrounded by friends and family.  Sidney waited on the rooftop for his bride for their first look and then we stuck around to take some fun wedding party photos.  They had a beautiful Catholic ceremony at St. Patrick Cathedral and if you haven’t been there, you should go check it out!  It is quite stunning!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Jess and Bobby – Wedding at Piazza in the VillageColleyville, TX

Jess and Bobby are basically like my spirit animals.  Their love of sports and Harry Potter are enough to make me jump up and down with excitement.  Bobby proposed to Jess at the Rangers Ballpark and that’s where we took their engagement photos.  Jess surprised Bobby by taking her bridal portraits at Cowboys Stadium (AT&T Stadium) and their ring box looked like the 7th Harry Potter book.  I mean I geeked out a little getting to know these two!  Jess and Bobby were married at Piazza in the Village in Colleyville and they made sure to incorporate all of these things into their wedding.  They had “Always” written across the floor at the beginning of the aisle, and the ring bearers carried the Harry Potter ring box to surprise Bobby.  There was a lot of surprising Bobby throughout the day.  After the ceremony Jess gave Bobby his next surprise, which was a small canvas of one of her Dallas Cowboys bridal portraits.  It was so much fun to watch him open it.  Their reception was held in the ballroom and was lit with blue uplighting and red table linens (Rangers colors) and the grooms cake had the logos from the Stars, Rangers and Cowboys.  Their guests signed a baseball bat as they entered that would later hang in their house.  Once it was time for the toast, it was also time for another surprise.  Bobby knew his step-dad was prepared to give a toast, what he didn’t know was that he was going to make Bobby sing!  Apparently in his school days, Bobby played Danny in Grease.  Naturally, we all needed to see his performance and he absolutely killed it!  After that it was all about the dancing.  All of their guests loved to dance, but nobody as much as Jess and Bobby.  Those two had several dance-offs and threw out moves that I’d never before witnessed.  They definitely accomplished their goal of throwing a fun party!  But all good things must come to an end and while their guests lined up outside, Jess and Bobby had one last dance alone as newlyweds.  They then were sent off through a tunnel of pom poms and left for their honeymoon in Bora Bora.  I am so excited for them and am so glad that they chose me to capture their special day.  Congrats to Jess and Bobby!
