Abbey & Ben – First Look and Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelFort Worth, TX

I have a special place in my heart for Aggies, and let me tell you, there were a lot of Aggies at this wedding!  Abbey’s eyes lit up when she talked about how her and Ben met in College Station and about how much she loves him.  Their first look was filled with smiles and total sweetness!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Sarah & Matthew – First Look & Ceremony at the Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

I had the opportunity to get to know these two during their engagement session a few months back in Dallas.  Engagement sessions are a great time for me to get to know my couples, how they met, and what they do for fun but during their session they kept asking questions about ME!  This blew me away and was just the start of getting to know their sweet and generous characters.  I knew their wedding day would be one full of laughter and joy!  These two chose to do a first look in one of the gardens at the Arboretum, and it was nothing short of great!  We had a lot of fun snapping some pictures before the wedding around some of the pretty places in the Arboretum.  They said “I Do” under a beautiful arbor decorated with flowers that one of their dad’s made.  The sun setting, the arbor, and the lush garden set the scene for their happy ceremony.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Isabella & Nic – Wedding CeremonyMcKinney, Texas


When I first talked to Isabella I new this was going to be a great wedding. They met in high school, and have been together ever since. Her family is Colombian and his is Persian, so I knew their ceremony and reception would be a lot of fun. These two couldn’t stop smiling at each other.  Check out some of my favorite moments from their ceremony!

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.

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!

Amanda and John – Wedding Ceremony at University Park United Methodist ChurchDallas, TX

I am so excited to share Amanda and John’s fabulous Dallas wedding!  They were married at University Park United Methodist Church and the day was absolute perfection.  I think nerves were running a little high while they were waiting to begin and poor John had a couple of moments during the ceremony where he forgot to repeat after the officiant. It made Amanda laugh and it’s those cute and silly moments that really make the memories last. After they were pronounced man and wife they went into the back room with their bridal party and it just made my heart melt to see the adoring way John was looking at his new wife.  He was absolutely beaming as she showed her wedding band to her bridesmaids.  It’s these kinds of behind the scenes moments that make me fall in love with my job over and over again.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their ceremony and check back soon for photos from their amazing reception!

Tayler and Austin – Wedding CeremonyFirst Baptist Celina - Celina, TX

I am so excited to share Tayler and Austin’s wedding!  Before the ceremony, Tayler had the opportunity to do a first look with both her dad and her step-dad.  Both men were so sweet and so excited to see Tayler in her dress for the first time.  It always touches my heart to see special daddy-daughter relationships and Tayler has two! Once we got to the church Tayler and Austin exchanged notes around a corner and I love the look on Tayler’s face when she gives Austin his present.  You can just see the excitement on her face and that she knows he is going to love it.  After they got to read each other’s words, it was time for the ceremony! One thing I really loved during their ceremony is that both families formed a circle around the couple in prayer. I thought that was so special and not something that I see very often.  In the ceremony and throughout the day I noticed how much importance is placed on family and I really love that.  Everyone on both Tayler and Austin’s sides were so thoughtful and loving and that is always such a wonderful thing to see!  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their ceremony and check back for more from the reception!

Lisa and John – First Look and Wedding CeremonyRobert Carr Chapel at TCU - Fort Worth, TX

I am so excited to share Lisa and John’s wedding photos!  I’ve been looking forward to their day all year and I can’t believe it’s come and gone so fast.  It’s been such a fun journey photographing them from their engagements, to Lisa’s bridals and now their big day!  We began the day with the girls over at the Worthington while they got their hair and makeup done.  Lisa has so many wonderfully sweet girls in her life and I loved getting to be up in the room and hang out with them.  Once we got Lisa dressed, it was time to head over to Robert Carr and let her and John see each other for the first time.  One thing I really love about Lisa and John is their smiles.  They smile all the time and it’s contagious!  I’m sure their faces hurt at the end of the day because I sure know that mine did.  Please take a look at some of my very favorite images from their first look and ceremony and be sure to check back for photos of their reception!

Rachel and Livingston – Wedding Ceremony & ReceptionThe Orchard - Azle, TX

wedding-the-orchard-azle-texas-ranch-wedding-amanda-mccollum-lightly-photography-040

Rachel and Livingston are married!  We had so much fun with these two out at The Orchard!  Rachel and her girls were a hoot and so much fun to hang out with during getting ready.  A lot of twerking and striking poses went on and it was fantastic.  The ceremony began right around sunset and was absolutely beautiful.  They braided the 3 chords to represent their relationship with each other and God, which I always love to see.  Then at the end of the ceremony they jumped the broom before sharing their first kiss as husband and wife!  After the ceremony it was most definitely a party.  The dance floor was full all the way up until it was time to exit.  Rachel is a dancing machine and so were so many of her guests! I love being in the middle of a full dance floor, it is always a ton of fun.  At the end of the night their guests sent Rachel and Livingston off to begin their new life through a tunnel of sparklers.  I am so glad that I had the opportunity to be part of their special day!  Congratulations to Rachel and Livingston!
