Jessica & Jake – Getting Ready and Ceremony at the MilestoneDenton, Texas

Jessica and Jake have to be one of my sweetest couples!  I got to know these two during their engagement session in Fort Worth and have been super excited for their big day to get here!  Excitement was high prior to the ceremony and there was not a dry eye when she walked down the aisle to Jake.  Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day.

Katie & Keegan – Getting Ready and Ceremony at the BRIKFort Worth

Temperatures reached over one hundred degrees the day these two tied the knot but that didn’t phase this couple!  Surrounded by their friends and family Katie and Keegan said “I do” at the Brik Venue in Fort Worth.   They shared a first look outside and Keegan’s reaction is the best!  I just love when a groom sees his bride for the first time!

Check out some of my favorite moments from the first part of their day!

Brynn & Michael – Backyard WeddingFort Worth, TX

Brynn and Michael were married at her parent’s home, under the big tree in their backyard.  The tree was a beautiful backdrop, flowing with floral decor by Flower Vibes.  Brynn and Michael chose some beautiful readings that were read by their sisters and exchanged vows that they had written themselves.  Their vows were by far my favorite part of their ceremony.  I especially loved when Michael recalled the first time he had ever seen/met Brynn.  The whole ceremony was full of smiles and laughter and was just perfect.  Afterward everyone moved to the back patio for the party!  Brynn and Michael are dancing machines and did not waste any time getting out on the dance floor!  Surrounded by all of their loved ones, they continued their party into the night.  It was such a great day and I am so glad they chose me to be there and document their big day!  Congratulations to Brynn and Michael!

Rebecca & Matt – Wedding Ceremony at UCCFort Worth, TX - Lindsey Morgan

Becca & Matt were married at University Christian Church, on TCU campus, and so many of their loved ones came to support them. They are a very sweet couple and once you meet them you can tell how much they value family, friendship and each other. While preparations for the ceremony involved a few surprises and lots of laughter, there were also some sweet moments shared. From the “first look” between Becca and her dad to Matt and his groomsmen praying before the ceremony, you can find plenty of emotion and love shared throughout this part of the day.

Becca & Chip – Wedding Ceremony at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

Becca & Chip are married!! After about 2.5 years of dating and wedding planning, these two had a beautiful ceremony and reception at The Ashton Depot in Downtown Fort Worth.

“Chip proposed on December 29th, which just so happens to be his birthday as well. I was completely surprised! He invited our closest friends to dinner, we went to an escape room after dinner where we beat the test with 20 seconds left to spare! When we were taking pictures afterwards, I turned around and he was on one knee.”

Becca spent the morning preparing with her girls and her sweet beagle and puggle babies!  I loved how the dogs wanted to get in the photo with all of the bridesmaids, but they got their own special photo with mom later.  The ceremony was held out in the courtyard at the Ashton Depot covered by a tent for shade.  It was a beautiful and sunny summer day surrounded by all of their loved ones!  I am so excited to share some of my favorite moments from their ceremony and be sure to check back for their fun reception!

Patricia & Jacob – Wedding Ceremony at First United Methodist ChurchFort Worth, TX

Patricia and Jacob are married and what an amazing day it was!  Everyone was so calm and just enjoying the day before the ceremony.  Patricia was absolutely breathtaking in her lace wedding gown and just looked so happy.  Her grandmother was there to help her put her sorority pin in her dress as she got ready and she had a very special veil that has been worn by the women in her family for about 100 years!  Such a cool family heirloom to pass on.  Everyone participated in a group prayer over Patricia and Jacob’s marriage and then it was time to walk down the aisle!  From that moment on, I don’t think that the smiles left their faces! Please enjoy some of my favorites from their ceremony and check back for their awesome reception!

Claire & Adan – Wedding Ceremony at TCU’s Robert Carr ChapelFort Worth, TX

Claire & Adan are married!  It was such a beautiful day with so many special moments!  Claire describes a few of them that she was so excited about…

“I am wearing my mom’s veil. I have always loved it and it is gorgeous. Adan is wearing spiderman cufflinks I bought him for his birthday and his best man is wearing captain america cufflinks that Adan gave him. They are both superhero buffs! One of our reading is from the Velveteen Rabbit. It is a beautiful passage I can’t wait to hear. I will be walking down the aisle to “Dawn” from the Pride and Prejudice soundtrack.”

In addition to all of these beautiful things, Claire and Adan gave their moms special rosaries during the ceremony and after they became husband and wife they stood on the balcony of the church and waved to their guests as they left the chapel.  It felt very appropriate being so close to the royal wedding!  Enjoy some of my favorite moments from their Fort Worth wedding!

Kelsey & Kal – Getting Ready and Ceremony at the Hilton and Piazza in the VillageMcKinney, Texas

I loved getting to know Kelsey and Kal during their engagement session and was super pumped for their big day! Here is how they met:

“Kal and I met at a recruiting company here in the Dallas, TX area. We sat in a cubicle next to each other for about a year and were strictly friends. One of our mutual friends invited us to the Eli Young Band concert and we haven’t been apart ever since. We have been dating a little over 3 1/2 years.”

Take a look at some of my favorite moments during the first part of their day!

Rachel & Jonathan – Wedding at Chandor GardensWeatherford, TX

Rachel and Jonathan had a beautiful, sunny day perfect for their Alice in Wonderland themed wedding!  They had a small and intimate wedding and reception at Chandor Gardens out in Weatherford and it was the perfect setting for what they were wanting.  Not only was the weather, day and location perfect but this sweet new family had so much beautiful emotion, I couldn’t help but tear up myself!  During the ceremony, Rachel and Jonathan both said vows to each other’s children and it was just the sweetest thing.  I loved witnessing this new family being formed.  After the ceremony we had the chance to go around the gardens for some fun photos where we got to get a little bit wet under the waterfall! I think some of my favorite moments (besides the vows) happened during the daddy daughter dances.  Rachel and her dad & Jonathan and his daughter.  Together with all of their closest friends and family, Rachel and Jonathan celebrated their marriage and their new family and when the night came to an end, the exited through a tunnel of sparklers underneath hanging teacups that decorated the pathway.  Congratulations Rachel and Jonathan!!

Magenta & Caleb – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel at TCUFort Worth, TX

What a beautiful day for Magenta and Caleb’s wedding!  There are always so many factors and moving parts to a wedding day but what I love most is that at the end of the day, all that matters is the love that you have for each other.  I know Magenta and Caleb could not wait to become husband and wife and you can tell from their story just how patient they have been throughout their entire relationship.

“We first met while working together the fall of 2013. We worked on the same team and became good friends while working on various projects together. Our friendship continued after Magenta was transferred to Minneapolis for work and we soon began a long distance relationship from across the country. Via FaceTime and many weekend trips to see one another, we soon fell in love and hoped that we would soon live in the same state again sometime soon. In June of 2015, to everyone’s surprise, Magenta was transferred back to the DFW area allowing our relationship to enter a new phase now that we lived close to one another. After a few months of continuing our now close distance relationship, Caleb proposed to Magenta at the Gaylord Texan on Christmas Eve of 2016 in front of both of our families.”

I am so excited for these two and I can’t wait to see what the future brings them!
