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!

Lindsey & Kurt – Getting Ready & Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelFort Worth, Texas

Lindsey & Kurt are both graduates from TCU and when I first met them, I knew they would have a great wedding.  They day started off with Lindsey getting ready at the new venue, the 4 Eleven, which is amazing!  Lindsey and her dad shared a sweet first look in the courtyard where she received a beautiful pearl bracelet from her dad.  The couple got married at Robert Carr chapel surrounded by friends and family and even had a saber exit after the ceremony!  After they said farewell to guests they hopped into a vintage car that drove us to the stadium to get a few pictures before the reception.  Check out a few of my favorite pictures from the first part of their day!

Leah & Grant – Ceremony at St. Patrick CathedralFort Worth, Texas

Leah and Grant got married on a very chilly winter day!  I had a chance to get to know this couple before the wedding during their engagement session, and was anticipating this wedding!  Leah and Grant are incredibly sweet together and even better… they are Aggies! Whoop!  They tied the knot at the beautiful St. Patrick Cathedral in downtown Fort Worth surrounded by friends and family and then headed to the City Club for their reception!  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

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!

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!

Celine & Wesley – Ceremony at Texas Discovery GardenDallas, Texas

I had the pleasure of getting to know Celine and Wesley at their engagement session and was super excited for their big day!  They got married in front of the fountain at the Texas Discovery Gardens with gorgeous evening light streaming through the trees.  Celine is from Hawaii so there were fun little hints of Hawaii throughout their day.  Their wedding party was definitely a fun group and I had a feeling it would be a dancing crowd.  They didn’t disappoint!  Stay tuned for their reception!

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!

Shelby & Clifton – Ceremony at St. Patrick’s CathedralFort Worth Wedding

From the first time I met Shelby I knew I would enjoy photographing this wedding.  Shelby and Clifton grew up around Fort Worth and have known each other for quite a while.  They both attended A&M (Whoop!) and had many aggies in attendance.   The ladies got ready at the wonderful Brik Venue (speaking of Brik, check out some of her gorgeous bridal portraits here!) and then we headed to St. Patrick’s Cathedral for the ceremony.  Shelby chose some gorgeous colors for the wedding and the bridesmaids wore long beaded gowns that complimented Shelby in her dress.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!
