Allison and Logan – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at Piazza on the GreenMcKinney, TX

When I think of Allison & Logan I think of the perfect couple comparable to a Disney prince and princess, so it was incredibly fitting that when I showed up to the venue that Allison was wearing her Mini Mouse house shoes.  I almost expected little woodland creatures to come and help her put on her wedding dress!   She was so incredibly excited and just full of joy and absolutely radiant!  When I asked what Disney couple they would most relate to, she said Anna and Krsitoff from Frozen and I can totally see it!  Their first look may have been a little windy but they were just too precious and so happy to see each other that a little wind was nothing.  They are just the kind of people that you can’t help but smile when you’re around them!  Their happiness is definitely contagious and you could tell during the ceremony how true that really is.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their first look and ceremony – you won’t be able to keep yourself from grinning!

Brigit & Lucas – Wedding and Reception at The ReataDowntown Fort Worth

Brigit & Lucas chose to have their intimate wedding and reception at The Reata in downtown Fort Worth.  With only their closest family and friends there, they said “I do” in the rooftop dome and immediately followed with a great dinner and mingling.  Instead of dancing this couple chose to have a variety of games for their guests to play!  Take a look at a view of my favorite moments from the day!

Chandler & Nic – First Look and Ceremony at the OrchardAzle, Texas

What a wedding!  Chandler and Nic are such a fun couple and I had such a great time photographing their special day.  These two met a few years ago and decided to tie the knot at the Orchard Venue.  Just as the sun was setting these two said “I do” under a chandelier lit pergola which was just perfect.  Check out some of my favorite moments from their beautiful winter wedding!

Adam & Josh-Wedding DayWedding Preparation, First Look & Portraits

dallas-wedding-city-place-towers-lizzie-bees-flowers-lightly-photography-0038

I met Adam and Josh a little over a year ago. Form the minute they started telling me about how they met and got engaged I knew I wanted to photograph their wedding day and I am so honored they chose me to capture their day. I love that they chose to do a first look so we could do some pre-ceremony portraits at a small park in downtown Dallas. I always tell my clients right before the first look to not worry about where the cameras are and just focus on seeing each other, take in that moment and just enjoy being in each other’s presence before saying your vows in front of your friends and family. I loved how Adam and Josh did just that. Here are some of my favorites from the first part of their day.

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

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

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!

Hailey and Ted – First Look and Wedding CeremonyWarwick Melrose & Holy Trinity Catholic Church - Dallas, TX

Wedding Holy Trinity Catholic Church Melrose Warwick Hotel Dallas Texas Classic Wedding Amanda McCollu Lightly Photography-078

I cannot even describe how excited I am about this wedding!  I have been ooooing and awwing over it ever since I got to the hotel that day.  I loved working with Hailey and Ted after their engagement session and I knew their wedding was one to look forward to!  Hailey was absolutely stunning in  her dress and Ted couldn’t have looked more dapper.  They just look like they stepped right out of old hollywood or something.  They are such a glamorous couple and just as sweet as they can be.  They had their first look out on the balcony at the Warwick Melrose Hotel in Dallas, where their reception was to be held later that evening.  We then headed down the street to Holy Trinity Catholic Church and they were married!  I can’t say enough how much I love this sweet couple and their families.  It is always a wonderful thing for me to experience when I can just feel the love that my couples have for each other throughout every moment of the day and I, without a doubt, got to experience that with Hailey, Ted and their family.  Please check back for their fun reception photos!

Madeline and Brandon – First Look and Wedding CeremonyStonebridge Wedding Venue - Blum, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

I am so excited to be sharing Madeline and Brandon’s photos from their wedding day!  I have known Madeline and Brandon for a few years and go to church with them.  They have always been the cutest little couple and I was thrilled that they asked me to photograph their big day.  They were actually married the day before in the LDS Dallas Temple but had a ring ceremony and reception to celebrate with their family and friends.  Even though they were already married the day before, Brandon had still not seen Madeline’s dress so they chose to do a first look.  I have never seen such a big smile on Brandon’s face as I did on this day.  Their ceremony was beautiful and they spoke sweet words of love and commitment to each other and I am so honored to have been able to witness and capture these priceless moments for them!  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their first look and ceremony and check back for more from their reception.

Autumn and Joe – First Look, Wedding Ceremony and ReceptionArborlawn Methodist & Stonegate Mansion - Fort Worth, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.comAutumn & Joe were married just a couple of weeks ago at Arborlawn Methodist Church in Fort Worth.  Although both Autumn and Joe are very go with the flow, laid back kind of people, you could tell that the nerves were flowing that morning.  All was pretty quite and calm while hair and makeup was going on, so I think that gives you a little more time to let everything sink in and hit you.  Autumn was so sweet as she sat preparing to get into her gown, finally seeing everything start to come together and all of a sudden it all became very real.  The day is here and they would be getting married in just few hours!  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this is why I love first looks!  Once Autumn and Joe saw each other for the first time, you could just sense a calming feeling come over them.  There is something incredibly romantic about another person being able to completely wipe away your nerves just by seeing them.  I love getting to witness that connection between two people.  Once the ceremony ended, they were announced husband and wife and it was on to Stonegate Mansion for the party!  You could tell how loved and admired Autumn and Joe are as individuals and as a couple not just by the beautiful toasts given, but also by the way they mingled with their guests.  It was an honor to work with such a sweet couple and their families.  Please enjoy a few of my favorite images from their big day!

April showers bring May flowers.  That’s what I feel like all of April has been this year, is just straight rain day after day.  And of course it threatened to rain, once again, on Jennifer and Alex’s wedding day, but we got very lucky and it held off!  It was a great day for a beautiful garden wedding with a beautiful couple.  Both Jenn and Alex seemed to be a little anxious while they were getting ready, which is why I am so glad they decided to do a first look.  I had spent the morning with Jenn and her girls but I didn’t get to see Alex until we were getting him ready to see his bride.  I was telling him how amazing she looked and when I saw her coming toward him in the distance, I said “oh here she comes” and he was overcome with emotion.  I know he was so ready to see his gorgeous future wife.  After they saw each other for the first time, nerves started to calm and we had some fun just being in the garden and taking some photos.  They had their intimate ceremony in front of the gazebo in the Fuller Gardens and it was the perfect setting.  They were so sweet as they read their vows to each other and Alex was making Jenn have a little giggle fit.  It was just the sweetest!  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their first look and ceremony and be sure to check back soon for more from their Colonial Country Club reception!

Caitlin and Tom – First Look and Wedding CeremonyLone Star Mansion - Burleson, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

They say it’s good luck for it to rain on your wedding day.  Well, Caitlin and Tom are pretty darn lucky, because not only did it rain on their wedding day, it also stopped just in time for their ceremony!  The whole morning it looked as though the rain might hold off but of course as soon as we are preparing to do their first look, it starts to pour.  No worries though!  We were still able to have their first look out on the big front porch of the mansion.  Man, was Tom’s face worth it when he saw Cait!  I mean his jaw literally dropped!  And why shouldn’t it have?  She looked absolutely stunning!  Once it was time for guests to begin arriving, the rain let up and the sun started to pop out from behind the clouds.  The ceremony was beautiful with a background of bright windows opening up to a view of green trees.  Once they were pronounced as husband and wife, all of the family and friends placed their hands out in a special prayer on the newlyweds.  It was so sweet and such a great way to begin their first steps as husband and wife.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their first look and ceremony!  Be sure to check back soon for their reception that was one heck of a party!!
