Abby & Casey – Wedding at The Fort Worth Club

Abby and Casey are married!  These two met playing soccer years ago and were married in the beautiful terrace of the Fort Worth Club complete with a fabulous view of Downtown Fort Worth.  Abby was escorted down the aisle by her mom and dad and she couldn’t have looked more stunning!  I love when ceremonies are full of memorable moments and Abby and Casey had several sweet, funny and tender moments.  During their vows Casey sweetly wiped a tear from Abby’s eye and just melted my heart.  After lighting the unity candle they were pronounced husband and wife and it was time to party!!  Everyone enjoyed cocktail hour with a fabulous all female mariachi band and then were all escorted into the ballroom to await the newlyweds.  Abby and Casey shared their first dance under the glowing light of the chandelier and then barely left the dance floor all night!  Nobody wanted to leave the dance floor, but all good things must come to an end.  Everyone gathered in front of the elevator and sent Abby and Casey off to start their new life through a tunnel of bubbles.  I’m so excited to share their day and so glad they chose me to capture it!

RoseAnn & Ross – Wedding Reception at The Renaissance WorthingtonFort Worth, TX

RoseAnn and Ross are now husband and wife and it is time to party!  After the ceremony all of their family and bridal party greeted and congratulated them while guests cleared the chapel.  We had some time for Ross and RoseAnn to be alone for the first time as a married couple and then it was on to the reception!  They had a few more special moments up their sleeves for the reception.  RoseAnn changed into her special red boots and her daddy helped her put them on before going into their father daughter dance.  Ross and his mom then shared a dance together and RoseAnn reserved a special dance with her brother.  I just love how close they all are!  Ross had a cake shaped like the Ole’ Miss football field and it was fun to hear them scream their chant.  Guests enjoyed dancing all night to the musical talents of It’s Your Night Entertainment’s Jeremiah Brinckley.  Not only is he a fabulous DJ, but he sings too!!  It was a fabulous night but all good things must come to an end.  While all of their family and friends gathered in the hall to see them off, Ross and RoseAnn shared one last private dance together.  They then were sent off to their honeymoon through a tunnel of shimmering red pom poms!  Congratulations to RoseAnn and Ross!

RoseAnn & Ross – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelFort Worth, TX

It seems like just yesterday that I was meeting RoseAnn and taking her bridal portraits, and now she is married!  When I first talked with RoseAnn about her wedding day and her plans, she told me about how she is very sentimental and about the meaningful things that would be happening.  I, also being a very sentimental person, got really excited.  RoseAnn is very close with her family and so she had many things at her wedding that had special meaning to her and different family members. Her shoes were her wedding colors and had their names and wedding date printed on the inside. She wore her grandmother’s jewelry.  Her brother gave her a beautiful charm bracelet that he placed on her wrist before they left for the church.  As she walked down the aisle arm in arm with her dad, she held a bouquet of yellow roses because her dad calls her “his yellow rose of Texas”.  How sweet is all of that?    Don’t worry!  She didn’t leave her new hubby out.  She had a brand new perfume specifically for her wedding day and anniversaries that she wore.  They say that you can associate memories with certain smells and what better way to remind you of your wedding day than a new scent?  She also wrote Ross a letter that he read right before the ceremony that he can always have and look back on.  I could go on and on but I think I’ll let the photos finish telling the story from here.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their special day and check back soon for their reception!

Melissa and Cody – Wedding at The OrchardAzle, TX

Melissa and Cody are married!  We started the day thinking the rain was going to keep us from being outside, but it did not!  Melissa and Cody chose to see each other before the ceremony and luckily it quit raining just in time!  They read notes they had written to each other and then Cody turned to see his bride for the first time and I think his breath may have literally been taken away.  They held the ceremony inside surrounded by their closest family and friends and said sweet vows to each other that made me tear up!  After they shared their first kiss, Cody smashed the glass (a Jewish tradition that they incorporated into their wedding) and they were on their way up the aisle as husband and wife!  Then it was time to celebrate and Melissa and Cody spent the rest of the evening enjoying chatting and dancing with all of the important people in their lives.  At the end of the night they spent one last dance together, taking in the day and each other.  They were then sent off to their new life through the glowing lights of sparklers.  Congratulations to Melissa and Cody!

Lauren and Akshay – Wedding at Clark GardensWeatherford, TX

When I checked facebook the morning of Lauren and Akshay’s wedding, the first thing I saw was a status update from Lauren.  I thought it would have said something to do with it being her wedding day, but it actually said “Happy Earth Day”.  That is what I love so much about these two.  They are so free-spirited and easy going and so much fun to be around.  I love that I can joke back and forth with them like I can with any of my old friends.  I remember when I first met Lauren and she told me she was designing her own wedding dress.  It was so exciting to see the finished product.  Lauren wanted to honor her mother’s memory by putting some color into her dress, since her mother wore a similar color on her own wedding day.  I love that she thought to have her mom close to her in this way on her big day.  Once it was time for the ceremony and everybody was seated, Akshay came down the aisle right after his best man and little french bulldog. Everyone stood for the bride and as soon as Lauren rounded the corner I heard him gasp and say “she looks SO beautiful”.  It made me smile instantly.  Isn’t that the reaction every bride wants out of her groom?  That just set the tone for the rest of the ceremony and left me (and everyone else) grinning the whole time.  After the ceremony everyone headed into the tent for the party!  In between dancing Lauren and Akshay greeted their guest along side their very sweet (and cold) puppy!  They also played the newlywed game and were asked some questions about each other.  I think Akshay might have had a little too much fun playing that game, but he was a nice husband and put his own shoe up when it came to those questions that could put you in the doghouse if you answer wrong.  It came to the end of the night pretty quickly and everyone lined up to send the newlyweds off.  Lauren and Akshay ran through a tunnel of rose petals and were on their way to begin their new life together!  Please take a look at their beautiful Earth Day Wedding!

Brooke & Robby – Reception at the Piazza in the VillageColleyville, Texas

On rare occasions does it occur that you get the most perfect sunset light, but let me tell you folks, we got it!  After the ceremony we took some fun wedding party photos outside and just as the sun was setting and creating a wonderful golden glow I was able to snap some photos of Brooke and Robby!  They will make you swoon, and if that isn’t perfect enough the wind caught Brooke’s veil in one of the photos which created a gorgeous moment!  Check out that moment and their reception below!

Cortni and Jason – Wedding Ceremony at Saint Patrick’s CathedralFort Worth, TX

What a beautiful day full of joy and emotions!  Cortni and Jason are absolutely precious and I am so excited to show off their wedding day!  They were married at Saint Patrick’s Cathedral in Downtown Fort Worth, but started the day at their reception venue, BRIK.  Once we got Cortni in her amazing dress, we went outside for some fun bridesmaids photos.  Cortni was then given a little gift and note from Jason and she only got a couple of sentences in before she was so moved to tears that she couldn’t continue to read.  I think Jason and his groomsmen had a little more fun while getting ready then most guys tend to.  It was time for Cortni to walk down the aisle and boy, did she look stunning!  It was so sweet seeing Jason tear up as his bride walked toward him.  They were so cute up at the altar during the service, stealing little glances toward one another.  Everything was absolutely perfect and they became husband and wife!  Check out my favorites from their Catholic ceremony and be sure to check back when their reception photos are posted!

Diana & Kylan – First Look and Wedding at University Christian ChurchFort Worth, Texas

Diana & Kylan got married on a chilly winter day at the beautiful University Christian Church.  These two met while Kylan was finishing up Grad School at TCU so of course we had to take some photos on campus.  I had a great time getting to know this couple before their wedding and was excited that their day had finally come!  Diana looked stunning in her dress surrounded by her girls who wore gorgeous purple dresses.  Check out some of my favorite moments!

Laura Jean and Branden – Wedding Reception at Tower ClubDallas, Texas

After they were pronounced husband and wife no time was wasted and we hopped onto the party bus and headed toward the reception.  I always love riding on the bus with the bridal party, there is never a dull moment!  We arrived at Tower Club Dallas and Laura Jean and Branden were introduced and went into their first dance with Downtown Dallas behind them as a perfect backdrop.  The dance floor was packed all night long as everyone enjoyed the music from the Signed Sealed Delivered Band.  Laura Jean and Branden ended the night with a bang dancing and singing on stage with the band!  As the night ended we sent the newlyweds off on their honeymoon through a tunnel of gold pom poms to the elevators.  It was a fun day and I’m so glad that they chose me to capture their special moments!  Congratulations Laura Jean and Branden!


Thank you to all for the vendors that helped make the day so special!

Lauren and Greg – Wedding at The Renaissance Worthington HotelFort Worth, Texas

It may have been a gloomy January day outside, but inside the ballrooms of the Worthington it was the exact opposite.  Lauren and Greg spent the day surrounded by family and friends as they prepared for their marriage and new life together.  They had a few minutes to themselves during their first look before beginning all of their wedding day events.  Then it was time for the signing of the Ketubah and wedding ceremony.  Lauren looked beautiful as she walked arm in arm with her parents to her future groom.  One thing that I loved about the Jewish ceremony was that the parents stood under the Chuppah with the couple.  What a wonderful way to watch your child be married!  Once they were pronounced husband and wife it was time to celebrate!  Thanks to Jamie and the rest of the team at Tami Winn Events, the ballroom was transformed into the winter wonderland that Lauren had her heart set on and everyone enjoyed the music by one of my favorite bands, Professor D!  It was so much fun to be out on the dance floor with everyone, especially during the Hora!  After all of the fun and dancing it was time to send the couple off to their new life together.  They were sent off through a tunnel of sparklers and taken away in a horse drawn carriage.  Congratulations to Lauren and Greg!
