Lauren and Russell – Wedding Reception at Hickory Street AnnexDallas, TX

I can’t tell you how much I love photographing a good party, and that’s exactly what Lauren and Russell had was a GOOD party.  The Memphis Soul band kept everyone out on the dance floor all night long, especially Lauren and Russell.  It is always so fun to see brides and grooms let loose and have fun with each other and their guests.  I have to be honest, I did not think I’d ever see the crazy side of Russell.  That guy knows how to have a good time, from dancing with his new bride, to singing karaoke on stage with his brother!  I already knew that Lauren and Russell were pretty much perfect for each other, but watching them in this setting just solidified it for me.  If you can’t be your goofy self with the ones you love then life can get pretty boring!  Everyone was having such a good time that they just didn’t want the night to end.  They begged the band to play one more song, but unfortunately all good things must come to an end.  All the guests lined up down the steps and sent Lauren and Russell off to begin their new life together.  It was such a fun night and I am so glad that I was able to be a part of it!  Congratulations to Lauren and Russell!

Natalie and Clayton – Wedding Ceremony at UCC and Reception at Stonegate Mansion

Wedding Ceremony UCC Reception Stonegate Mansion Amanda McCollum Lightly Photography-0044Only in Texas will it be 60 degrees the week before your wedding and then suddenly drop to freezing, snowing and sleeting just for your special day.  Natalie and Clayton were married during that crazy weekend of weird weather, but the snow and ice slowed nobody down and the show went on as planned.  When Natalie and her bridesmaids arrived at the church I think Natalie was just so nervous with excitement and ready to see her future husband, she could not stop smiling!  Clayton had Natalie’s grandmother’s ring re-sized for her and it was such a sweet surprise for her to open before they walked down the aisle.  She was just in awe that he had done that for her.  You could just feel the love between these two the whole night, because they did not quit smiling the whole time!  Even through the whole ceremony they were so cute giggling and not taking their eyes off of one another.  After they were finally married it was time to get the party started.  We headed over to Stonegate Mansion, but before they went in of course we had to take some photos in the snow! Because, really, how often do we get this opportunity in Texas?  Once they hit that dance floor, they danced and had the time of their lives with their family and friends.  They ended the night with a private dance where they were able to be alone and enjoy their reception space for the first time all day.  They then made their exit through a tunnel of glowing sparklers and drove away in a vintage car.  I hope everyone enjoys some of my favorite moments from Natalie and Clayton’s winter wedding.  Congratulations you two!
