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!

Kelly & Chris – Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel Reception at Historic 512Fort Worth, Texas

Kelly and Chris are as sweet as they come.  This day was filled with so many special moments with friends and family.  Kelly’s father walked her down the aisle at the beautiful Robert Carr Chapel and you can just see the look of love on Chris’ face!  Their reception was held at the Historic 512 and featured a fun swing band.  There was not a single dry eye in the venue after Kelly’s father gave a toast welcoming Chris into the family!  Thanks for letting me capture your sweet day!

Jess and Bobby – Wedding at Piazza in the VillageColleyville, TX

Jess and Bobby are basically like my spirit animals.  Their love of sports and Harry Potter are enough to make me jump up and down with excitement.  Bobby proposed to Jess at the Rangers Ballpark and that’s where we took their engagement photos.  Jess surprised Bobby by taking her bridal portraits at Cowboys Stadium (AT&T Stadium) and their ring box looked like the 7th Harry Potter book.  I mean I geeked out a little getting to know these two!  Jess and Bobby were married at Piazza in the Village in Colleyville and they made sure to incorporate all of these things into their wedding.  They had “Always” written across the floor at the beginning of the aisle, and the ring bearers carried the Harry Potter ring box to surprise Bobby.  There was a lot of surprising Bobby throughout the day.  After the ceremony Jess gave Bobby his next surprise, which was a small canvas of one of her Dallas Cowboys bridal portraits.  It was so much fun to watch him open it.  Their reception was held in the ballroom and was lit with blue uplighting and red table linens (Rangers colors) and the grooms cake had the logos from the Stars, Rangers and Cowboys.  Their guests signed a baseball bat as they entered that would later hang in their house.  Once it was time for the toast, it was also time for another surprise.  Bobby knew his step-dad was prepared to give a toast, what he didn’t know was that he was going to make Bobby sing!  Apparently in his school days, Bobby played Danny in Grease.  Naturally, we all needed to see his performance and he absolutely killed it!  After that it was all about the dancing.  All of their guests loved to dance, but nobody as much as Jess and Bobby.  Those two had several dance-offs and threw out moves that I’d never before witnessed.  They definitely accomplished their goal of throwing a fun party!  But all good things must come to an end and while their guests lined up outside, Jess and Bobby had one last dance alone as newlyweds.  They then were sent off through a tunnel of pom poms and left for their honeymoon in Bora Bora.  I am so excited for them and am so glad that they chose me to capture their special day.  Congrats to Jess and Bobby!

Hannah and Kevin – Wedding Ceremony at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

When you live in Texas, you expect the weather to be pretty unpredictable.  Hannah and Kevin started off their wedding day with a beautiful, bright and sunny morning.  It seemed as though everything was going perfectly according to plan.  We were even running early!  It was about 5 minute before the ceremony was supposed to start when the sideways, monsoon rain started.  Not to worry though!  The amazing staff at Ashton Depot plus the always brilliant Justine of Justine’s Flowers were quick on their feet and came to the rescue.  They transformed the dance floor into the ceremony space within just a few minutes and we were back on track.  Even though the ceremony didn’t happen outside the way it was originally planned, everything was still incredibly beautiful.  At the end of the day Hannah and Kevin were husband and wife, rain or shine.  It was a great day!  Check out some of my favorites from their ceremony and check back soon for their reception!

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

June in Texas is known for being pretty warm and the day before Lauren and Russell’s wedding was definitely a scorcher.  Luckily, their big day was cooled off by a little big of morning rain and some cloud coverage.  I loved getting to hang out with Lauren and her girls while they were getting ready.  Everyone was so chill and relaxed and just excited to be there!  Everything was just about as perfect as it could be (a big part of that is thanks to the amazing event coordinators, Maxwell + Grey!).  The bridesmaids wore beautiful gray dresses that brought out the nice green and blush colors of their flowers.  Lauren was absolutely stunning in her wedding dress that had a gorgeous illusion neckline.  I’m pretty sure she knocked Russell’s socks off when he saw her walking down the aisle toward him.  Lauren and Russell were married at Hickory Street Annex surrounded by many large windows, letting in rays of light and showing off the luscious greenery in the background, setting up the perfect scene.  As soon as they were pronounced husband and wife, Lauren threw her bouquet in the air in a fist pump of victory.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their beautiful ceremony and check back for more from their rockin’ reception!

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!

Nicole & Jacob – Wedding Ceremony and Reception at the BRIKFort Worth, TX

Nicole & Jacob got married on a beautiful, if not slightly warm (Hello Texas!), day in Fort Worth.  I have had the privilege of shooting at BRIK before and I just love it.  With all the natural light and fun textures this is definitely a great space to get married.  She chose some great vendors to make this Texas themed wedding come alive.  The bridesmaids wore beautiful navy dresses that complimented the white, ivory, and light blue florals.  As the bride and groom kissed for the first time, family and friends rang cow bows!  How fun!  These two also had a very fun band play during their reception.  The Dick Beldings are a 90s cover band that one of the groomsman is a member of.  Not your average wedding band!  Check out some of my favorite moments from their wedding!

Sarah & Matthew – Reception at the Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

If you haven’t heard of Molly from Pop Parties, you are missing out!  She helped coordinate Sarah & Matthew’s day so that it would run smoothly.  Not only does a coordinator help a couple’s dream come to reality, but they allow the other vendors, including myself, to work efficiently and help everyone follow the schedule!  It is always a pleasure working with great vendors!

These two had a very sweet first dance followed by open dancing where everyone was showing off their dance moves.  Check out some of my favorite moments from Sarah & Matthew’s reception!
