Kelsey & Kal – Getting Ready and Ceremony at the Hilton and Piazza in the VillageMcKinney, Texas

I loved getting to know Kelsey and Kal during their engagement session and was super pumped for their big day! Here is how they met:

“Kal and I met at a recruiting company here in the Dallas, TX area. We sat in a cubicle next to each other for about a year and were strictly friends. One of our mutual friends invited us to the Eli Young Band concert and we haven’t been apart ever since. We have been dating a little over 3 1/2 years.”

Take a look at some of my favorite moments during the first part of their day!

Kendall & Collin – Ceremony and First Look at Mary Leonard ChapelFort Worth, Texas

Kendall and Collin are both aggies (whoop!) and got married on a sunny, spring day!  The entire week before, and even the hour before I arrived, there had been constant rain and clouds but as soon as I arrived the sun began to shine!  You can imagine everyone’s excitement!  One of my favorite moments is when the bridesmaids see the bride in her dress for the first time, and these bridesmaids didn’t disappoint! There was so much energy in the room and everyone began to sing “Going to the Chapel” which was so fun.  The sunshine and Marty Leonard provided the perfect backdrop for Kendall and Collin to see each other before the wedding.  I just love his reaction!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Courtney & Tyler – Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelFort Worth, TX

Oh my goodness!  I cannot stop gushing over Courtney and Tyler’s wedding day!  It was pretty much as perfect as a wedding day can be.  We started the day out getting ready at Courtney’s childhood home where everyone was excited for the day to start.  All of the girls were absolutely stunning with their floor length champagne colored gowns as they watched Courtney put on her wedding dress.  That’s the moment when everything starts feeling real.  Soon after Courtney was dressed, the power in the whole neighborhood went off!  Luckily everyone was done and ready to go.  Once we got to the church it was time for Courtney and Tyler to see each other for the first time.  I do believe Tyler had his breath taken away by seeing his beautiful bride to be in her wedding dress, especially after seeing that amazing illusion back.  We had so much fun with Courtney, Tyler and their wedding party!  Guests started arriving and it was time to get Courtney’s veil on and get her down the aisle!  The ceremony was beautiful with Marty Leonard a lit up at night.  It was an incredibly breathtaking view.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from Courtney and Tyler’s ceremony and be sure to check back for their reception!

Marisa & Lance – First Look & Ceremony at the Marquis on MagnoliaFort Worth, Texas

This wedding was unique in that it completely took place in the Fairmount neighborhood which happens to be where our office is located as well as where I live!  This couple wanted to use local vendors and even had guests stay in local airbnb homes to get the full experience. Preparations for the day started at their adorable historic home surrounded by friends and their cute cats.  Before the ceremony they did a first look on the front porch and then we hung around for more pictures.  One of my favorite images from the day is when one of their cats photo bombed them!  He wanted to be a part of the day too!

Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

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!
