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!

Daniella & Stephen – Reception at the Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

Daniella & Stephen’s reception was dreamy! As they entered the reception they surprised their guests with a choreographed dance that included their wedding party and then went into their first dance.  I had a feeling this group would dance all night, and I was not disappointed!  Check out some of my favorite pictures from their reception!

Stephanie & PJ – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at Renaissance Dallas at Plano Legacy West HotelPlano, TX

I am so excited to share Stephanie and PJ’s big day!!  They were married at a brand new hotel in Plano, Renaissance West Legacy, and were the first wedding there!  For their first look it was so much fun to have such cool backgrounds to use with all of the different artwork and architecture.  Stephanie looked absolutely amazing her in her wedding dress and it had a very faint blush skirt, which I loved!!  I think PJ fell speechless when he turned around and saw her for the first time, his jaw nearly dropped to the floor.  They held their ceremony up on the pool deck overlooking the city below and it was a beautiful view.  It was the perfect place for Stephanie and PJ to have their wedding especially since PJ’s family is from New York.  They were able to spend time with the people they love most and give them an cool and funky Texan place to stay.  Check back soon for photos from the reception!!

Janey & Collin – Wedding Reception at The Carlisle RoomDallas, TX

After the ceremony everyone headed down to the Carlisle Room for the reception.  Janey and Collin shared their first dance and then Janey and her dad shared a sweet father daughter dance together.  Then it was time for the party to start!  Janey and Collin were able to spend the evening dancing and chatting with the people who mean the most to them.  They even had a big group of friends gathered on the dance floor watching the last bit of the UT game on an iphone!  There were some happy Longhorns on that dance floor and I think the fight song was played about 3 or 4 times.  At the end of the night Janey and Collin shared a private last dance and enjoyed a little time alone in their reception room just soaking up the day.  We then sent them on their way through a tunnel of sparklers!  It was a beautiful and perfect day and I am so grateful that they chose me to capture it and spend the day with them.  Congrats Janey and Collin!

Janey & Collin – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at Holy Trinity Catholic ChurchDallas, TX

Janey and Collin are married!  We began the day at The Carlisle Room where the reception would later be.  You could feel the excitement in the air as we drew closer to first look and ceremony time.  I think I made Collin anxious when I made him wait a little longer to turn around and see his bride for the first time.  When he did finally get to turn around, his jaw dropped seeing Janey in her dress.  She looked absolutely perfect and I think it was well worth the wait I put him through.  These two are the absolute cutest and I had been looking forward to their day for a long time!  We were able to get some beautiful romantic photos of them and some fun wedding party before heading to the church.   I loved how much of a fun and sweet group of friends they had in their bridal party.  It really made my job even easier!  We got to the church and it was time for the ceremony.  As Janey walked down the aisle on her dad’s arm, Collin looked like he had just seen her for the first time all over again.  I love how you can see his face light up every time he sees her.  The ceremony began and it was so beautiful, complete with a few giggles and sweet stolen glances at one another.  Before we knew it, they were pronounced husband and wife and making their way back up the aisle!  I can’t imagine it being any more perfect! Please check out some of my favorites from their first look and ceremony and check back soon for their fun reception at The Carlisle Room!

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!

Nicki & Kenny – Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelFort Worth, TX

I am so excited to share Nicki and Kenny’s special day!  We started the day at The Fort Worth Club and I don’t think Nicki stopped smiling all morning.  Even when the tears started, she was still wearing a smile!  I absolutely loved the energy and happiness that I felt just during getting ready! Kenny loves Superman, so Nicki got him some fun Superman socks to surprise him with and to go with his Superman cuff links!  Once I saw Nicki’s dress, it was exactly what I pictured her wearing and she looked absolutely stunning.  Kenny even started coming up with all the different words he could think of to describe his new wife’s beauty.  It was so cute.  During the ceremony you could really feel the love between these two as Nicki so elegantly wiped tears from her eyes and Kenny could not keep his eyes off of her.  I am so happy to share some of my favorites from their big day and be sure to check back for more from their reception!

Jessica & Sidney – Reception at McDavid StudioFort Worth, Texas

These two had a great reception full of dancing and laughter.  Dancing is by far one of my favorite times during a wedding because there is so much energy and people can just let loose!  Jessica and Sidney shared a sweet last dance before leaving with a streamer exit!  It was such a joy photographing this great couple!  Take a look at some of my favorite moments.
