Jessica & Seth – Wedding Ceremony & Reception at the Piazza in the VillageColleyville, Texas

Jessica and Seth are married! From the moment I met Jessica and her mom at her bridal, I knew this would be a good wedding! Jessica’s sweet and joyful demeanor could only mean that her fiance was just as nice! Jessica and Seth got married on a beautiful, Texas Fall day surrounded by close friends and family at the Piazza in Colleyville.  After dinner, the dance floor stayed packed!  Jessica was a Rangerette in College and several other girls there were Rangerettes too.  You know there were some good dance moves!  Several times throughout the night I noticed Seth giving Jessica a sweet kiss on the forehead when people weren’t looking which I was able to catch.  These two were sweet together and I am thankful I had the chance to capture their special day!

Daniella & Stephen – Getting Ready and First Look at the Worthington HotelFort Worth, Texas

Get ready folks for the cutest couple!  Daniella and Stephen are not only adorable together, but they are some of the sweetest people.  These two currently live in New York (yes please!) but chose to get married at St. Patrick Cathedral with a reception at the Ashton Depot!  These two got ready at the Worthington Hotel and chose to have their first look on the rooftop before the ceremony.  Let me tell you, I don’t think any of us had dry eyes!  We also had the opportunity to take a pit stop at the Kimbell Art Museum for some fun wedding party photos!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

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!

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!

Melissa and Cody – Wedding at The OrchardAzle, TX

Melissa and Cody are married!  We started the day thinking the rain was going to keep us from being outside, but it did not!  Melissa and Cody chose to see each other before the ceremony and luckily it quit raining just in time!  They read notes they had written to each other and then Cody turned to see his bride for the first time and I think his breath may have literally been taken away.  They held the ceremony inside surrounded by their closest family and friends and said sweet vows to each other that made me tear up!  After they shared their first kiss, Cody smashed the glass (a Jewish tradition that they incorporated into their wedding) and they were on their way up the aisle as husband and wife!  Then it was time to celebrate and Melissa and Cody spent the rest of the evening enjoying chatting and dancing with all of the important people in their lives.  At the end of the night they spent one last dance together, taking in the day and each other.  They were then sent off to their new life through the glowing lights of sparklers.  Congratulations to Melissa and Cody!

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!

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!
