Ali & Caleb – Wedding Reception at The Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, TX

What a fun day!  Ali & Caleb’s ceremony was fantastic and now it’s time to party and celebrate all of the little moments that led to this moment!  Ali tells us about the best moment (the proposal!)  in her own words.

“It was a cold and rainy weekend in February and I was down in Austin visiting Caleb. He had planned for us to go to a winery with two of our friends Amy and Henry that evening. We were to pick Amy and Henry up from Camp Lucy to head to the winery and get our tasting on. When we arrived Amy immediately sent Caleb away to do “work” while we could chat. While I was chowing down on a cookie, Amy asked if I would be interested in seeing new developments on the property at Camp Lucy. We were touring the bridal suite and she was asking me if I had any idea of where I would want my wedding to be one day. I pointed to my left hand and said “I have no ring, so not yet” (little did I know) Amy asked if I wanted to go see the new benches in Ian’s Chapel- I thought it odd but I obliged. As she led me up the stairs to the chapel I started to hear music, when we approached the chapel doors she swung them open and there Caleb stood at the end of the aisle of the church surrounded by candles and rose petals. Caleb got down on one knee and the rest is a blur. (I obviously said YES!) I somewhat caught my breath and walked outside to a photographer who was there to take pictures of our special day, she snapped away as I was still blown away that such an amazing man just asked me to be his wife.

Caleb took me to another venue on Camp Lucy’s property where there were flowers, pictures a fire and every romantic thing I could dream up. As we were chatting (really, I was crying like a baby) my Mom and Dad walked through the door followed by my sweet brother Ben, Lauren, and some of my best friends. I was so excited the tears started to flow even more. It was so perfect. Later that evening after the champagne was popping, Caleb ushered us all to his parents’ home where they threw us the most incredible engagement party. However, sweet Caleb was not done yet. He told me that night there would be another engagement party waiting for me when I returned home to Dallas. When I arrived back in Dallas on Sunday all my best friends were waiting to celebrate with us. It was an absolute dream; I cannot wait to Marry Caleb. I am still blown away at how sweet the Lord has been to me-I am lucky to be gaining a man who seeks The Lord fervently and loves me with all that he has. I can’t wait to spend the rest of my life with him!”

I absolutely adore Ali and Caleb and had so much fun celebrating their love with all of their family and friends.  They had one heck of a reception and danced all night long!  Congratulations to Ali and Caleb!

Ali & Caleb – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel at TCUFort Worth, TX

Wow.  What an incredible couple Ali and Caleb are!    I love how Caleb describes the way they first met and their courtship after that led to marriage!  Here is their story in his own words.

“It was the summer of 2015, and I was complaining to one of my best friends of how tired I was of being single and hated the entire process of first dates. My friend Amy listened patiently and began to plant inconspicuous seeds of getting to know Alexandra, the soon to be love of my life. I was taken aback because Ali not only lived 3.5 hrs away, but was also a devout Fighting Texas Aggie and in my opinion not my type. My how I was so wrong!!!!!! It was not until the Winter of 2016, that I finally took Amy up on her suggestion and boldly asked Ali out on a blind date to the Twisted Root burger and beer joint in a suburb of Dallas. I instantaneously felt a connection and could not help but see the beauty and kindness she had within. We spoke a few hours of family and friends and things seemed to flow so organically. A few days after our first encounter, I asked if I could call her and a few phone calls turned into another in person date.

Here is where the story goes south for about two weeks……… I got scared and nervous and did not follow up after our last date.

It finally was about a week before our awesome friend Amy’s wedding, when I asked to see her again. I knew it was a long shot, because I was kind of a jerk but she kindly accepted my offer and went as my date.

We nervously met up the night before our mutual friend’s wedding in San Marcos, where I introduced her to my stomping grounds, which included a sub-par burger joint and fantastic wine bar experience.

The organic conversations that fueled our first encounter was back, as we didn’t skip a beat. I remember loving how natural I felt with Ali and hoped this would be my forever partner in crime.

The following day, Ali and I met up to attend the nuptials of Henry and Amy. I was insanely nervous and knew that I was about to embark on the most incredible journey and adventure of a lifetime………. I just didn’t know how amazing it was going to be.

After the wedding, I asked if we could sit and chat a while. I nervously told her I liked her in the most awkward way possible and didn’t know how it would work, but wanted it to work. She replied by inviting me to meet [her family] and I excitedly accepted her offer. I had no clue the amazing journey to marriage I was about to experience.

It has been a year since Ali and I first met. My heart still skips a beat when I gaze into her eyes. She makes me a better man and I cannot wait to make her my wife.”

With only having 2 weddings left in 2017, I couldn’t be more excited they they were one of them. These two are quite possibly the sweetest and most genuine people you’ll ever meet and their excitement for life is so infectious.  Usually it’s my couples’ faces that hurt after smiling so much for photos, but this time I found my own face hurting from all of the smiling from just being around them and their families.  Enjoy some of my favorite moments from their ceremony and check back for their amazing reception!

Nicki & Kenny – Wedding Reception at The Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, TX

Nicki and Kenny’s day went by way too fast, but was oh so much fun!  After the ceremony we finished up with their wedding party and had some fun with their photos.  Then we headed back to Fort Worth Club for the party!  After the dances and toasts, Nicki and Kenny had a fun way to include all of their guests in photos.  They did a selfie dash!  They went around to each table and each table thought of a fun pose to do with the couple.  It was such a great way for them to have a photo with everyone!  After that they, along with their friends and family, danced up a storm! We couldn’t believe it when it was already time to send them off on their honeymoon!  Before rushing off, they had one last private dance and then made their way to the elevators.  Everyone was sad to see it end but so excited to send the newlyweds off to begin their new lives!  Congratulations Nicki and Kenny!

Natalie and Robert – Wedding Reception at Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, TX

After the ceremony everyone headed over to Fort Worth Club for the reception.  Robert’s brother and Natalie’s sister gave some very sweet toasts about the kind of amazing people that Natalie and Robert are and you could definitely feel how much love they all have for one another.  After toasts it was time to party,  and what a party it was!  Thanks to the musical talents of the Limelight band,  the dance floor was constantly full.  And who knew that Robert could dance like that?  I sure didn’t!  These two, along with all of the friends and family, danced up a storm and had an absolute blast.  I am so sad that their day has come and gone, but I am so excited to be able to share their day with everyone.  I cannot wait to see what the future holds for these two.  Thanks for letting me part of your special day! Congratulations to Natalie & Robert!

Natalie and Robert – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel at TCUFort Worth, TX

I don’t think that I can truly describe the amount of emotion that Natalie and Robert’s big day actually had.  Not only for them and their families but for me as well!  I’ll just give you a hint by saying how excited I have been all year to photograph their engagements, then Natalie’s bridal and finally their wedding!  I was tearing up and full of emotion all day and then incredibly sad when it was over.  Now I am getting excited all over again because I get to share their amazing photos with the world!  Natalie and Robert are the kind of people that when you meet them, you are automatically friends.  I can’t tell you how happy it made me to talk to Natalie on the phone or through e-mail throughout the process of planning her wedding.  They both have this way of making everyone feel so special and loved, which made my job incredibly easy and more fun than it already is.  Natalie had the biggest smile on her face from the moment I arrived (and I’m sure before) to the moment they rode away in the carriage at the end of the night.  I know it was so hard for both of them to have to wait all day for the ceremony.  They both were so overcome with emotion, just waiting to finally get to see each other and become husband and wife.  Before the ceremony, the exchanged letters around a door.  As I placed Robert behind the door and told him I was going to get Natalie, he began to tear up knowing it was just minutes before he’d get to see her walk down the aisle.  As they finished reading each other’s notes, Natalie just started jumping up and down grinning ear to ear, so excited that the moment had finally arrived.  I don’t think I’ll ever forget the pure joy that was felt during their entire ceremony.  Afterward as they walked back up the aisle and out the chapel doors they just beamed at each other, jumping up and down, kissing, hugging and showing off their rings.  I cannot fully express how excited I am for these two.  Please enjoy my favorites from their Robert Carr ceremony and check back soon for their fun reception at The Fort Worth Club!

Remy & Max – Getting Ready and Ceremony at St. Patrick’s CathedralFort Worth, Texas

Remy and Max got ready for their big day at the Fort Worth Club before heading to St. Patrick’s Cathedral to say “I Do.”  Before the ceremony, Remy decided to have a first look with her dad which had every one in tears, including me!  There is nothing quite like the father/daughter bond!  Both Remy and Max’s parents seemed to play an important role in their relationship, and the couple chose to incorporate them in very special ways throughout the day.

St. Patrick’s is a gorgeous place to get married, and with the full choir, it truly was an amazing ceremony.  These two were all smiles!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Special thanks to all the great vendors!

Diana & Kylan got married on a chilly winter day at the beautiful University Christian Church.  These two met while Kylan was finishing up Grad School at TCU so of course we had to take some photos on campus.  I had a great time getting to know this couple before their wedding and was excited that their day had finally come!  Diana looked stunning in her dress surrounded by her girls who wore gorgeous purple dresses.  Check out some of my favorite moments!

Erica & Andrew – Wedding CeremonyFort Worth Club

Lightly Photography 2016

I have been looking forward to this wedding since I did Erica and Andrew’s engagement session back in May!  This couple is just so sweet and fun together.   They had their ceremony and reception at the Fort Worth club downtown.  As soon as I got there I could tell there was so much excitement in the air.   The couple chose to do a first look which allowed us to get some fun shots of them together as well as their wedding party before the ceremony.  As Erica’s father escorted her down the aisle, Andrew anxiously waited for her with a huge grin.  These two tied the knot under a gorgeous flower arch in front of family and fiends!  Stay tuned for more from the reception!
