Tori & Jake – Wedding Ceremony at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

What a beautiful night!  Tori and Jake held their reception at the amazing Ashton Depot.  It was lit all warm and glowy, which was the perfect backdrop as they shared their first dance under the chandeliers.  Tori’s dad gave a sweet toast and welcomed Jake into their family, then the party was on!  We had so much fun on the dance floor with this group!  Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and everyone lined up outside as Tori and Jake shared their private last dance.  They then were sent off to start their new lives together!  Thanks so much for letting me capture your big day! Congratulations!

Jeanette & JB – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

With all of the beautiful architecture and chandeliers, it’s hard not to love weddings at The Ashton Depot!  Jeanette and JB took full advantage of the outdoor space and had beautiful lounge furniture for guests to use during cocktail hour.  The purple color scheme continued on inside with the rich colors decorating each table.  With the big chandeliers hanging overhead and the beautiful doors as the perfect backdrop, guests had quite the view.  After cocktail hour, guests made their way to their seats and cheered as the newlyweds were introduced into the reception and their first dance.  After dinner it was time to get the party started, and with DJ Andy Austin at the controls it’s always a good party!  With the dance floor rocking so hard we only got a minute or two to step outside to get a few fun night shots of the outside of the building and downtown Fort Worth and then back to the party we went!  At the end of the night Jeanette and JB shared a private last dance before being sent off to start their new life!  Congratulations Jeanette and JB!

Jeanette & JB – Wedding Ceremony at First Christian ChurchFort Worth, TX

They are married!  Jeanette and JB were married at The First Christian Church in Downtown Fort Worth.  They chose a color palette of purples that contrasted nicely against the light gray of the guys’ suits.  I loved seeing the close relationship between these two and their families.  It was apparent throughout the whole day how important family is from getting ready all the way to the end of the reception.  Check out the images below and see just how sweet this day truly was!

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!

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!

Hannah and Kevin – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

Even though the rain may have prevented the ceremony from being held outdoors, it let up just enough for us to finish up photos outside!  Then Hannah and Kevin partied the night away with Trey and the Tritones.  They were having a blast catching up with friends and family and rockin’ it out on the dance floor.  While all of the guests lined up to see them off, they stayed behind for their private last dance.  I always love private dances but the Ashton Depot is always such a beautiful backdrop for it.  Once they made their getaway, I met up with them in downtown to get a few more fun night photos!  Thank goodness the rain stayed away for the rest of the evening.  Congratulations to Hannah and Kevin!

Hannah and Kevin – Wedding Ceremony at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

When you live in Texas, you expect the weather to be pretty unpredictable.  Hannah and Kevin started off their wedding day with a beautiful, bright and sunny morning.  It seemed as though everything was going perfectly according to plan.  We were even running early!  It was about 5 minute before the ceremony was supposed to start when the sideways, monsoon rain started.  Not to worry though!  The amazing staff at Ashton Depot plus the always brilliant Justine of Justine’s Flowers were quick on their feet and came to the rescue.  They transformed the dance floor into the ceremony space within just a few minutes and we were back on track.  Even though the ceremony didn’t happen outside the way it was originally planned, everything was still incredibly beautiful.  At the end of the day Hannah and Kevin were husband and wife, rain or shine.  It was a great day!  Check out some of my favorites from their ceremony and check back soon for their reception!

Kelly & Chris – Engagement Session at the Botanic Garden and Downtown Fort WorthFort Worth, TX

I loved getting to know Kelly and Chris during their engagement session.  These two met at church here in Fort Worth and love biking and being out in nature.  We chose the Botanic Garden to take some photos and then headed over to the water gardens.  They tie the knot this summer at the Historic 512 (also known as the YWCA).  Can’t wait!  Here are a few of my favorites from their session.

Magenta and Caleb – Engagement Session at Trinity Park and Downtown Fort WorthFort Worth, TX

I know I say  it a lot but it’s always true, I had so much fun hanging out with Magenta and Caleb!  They love coffee so we stopped in Avoca Coffee shop just down the street for a quick cup and a few fun photos.  We then headed over to Trinity park where Caleb brought out one of the many signs he used to propose to Magenta back at Christmas.  They were just too cute and giggly that I couldn’t help but smile while I was around them.  We ended our session in Downtown Fort Worth.  Magenta and Caleb really love the look and the architecture so it was the perfect place especially since their reception will be held down there next year!  Check out their fun engagement session!
