Emily & Tyler – Getting Ready and Ceremony at the Grand IvoryLeonard, Texas

Emily and Tyler are genuinely some of the nicest people I have met.  Their story is sweet, special, and uniquely theirs.  One of my favorite parts of my job is getting to know my couples stories and sharing in their excitement about their big day.  The day was filled with love as they surrounded themselves with friends and family from near and far.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

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!

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!
