Nayane & Vitor – Ceremony and Reception at Hidden Pines ChapelFlower Mound, Texas

This wedding was such a beautiful day full of love, excitement, and fun Brazilian tradition!  These two tied the knot at Hidden Pines Chapel and had a beautiful ceremony in Portuguese.  After the ceremony they had a relaxed reception that included a fun Brazilian tradition of auctioning off a tie to raise money for the couple.  I enjoyed being able to photograph this sweet couple and I hope you enjoy some of my favorite moments!

Lindsey & Matt – Wedding Reception at The Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, TX

After the ceremony, Lindsey and Matt headed back to the Fort Worth Club to celebrate with all of their friends and family.  The dance floor was packed as everyone enjoyed the music from The Royal Dukes Band and if Lindsey and Matt weren’t out on the dance floor they were catching up with old friends.  They also spent some time on stage with the band showing off their dance moves!  At the end of the night, Lindsey and Matt shared a private last dance and then were sent off through a cloud of flutterfetti to start their new life together!  It was a great day and I am so glad they chose me to be there and capture it for them!  Congratulations to Lindsey and Matt!

Katie & Keegan – Reception at the BRIK VenueFort Worth, Texas

One of my favorite moments from the reception is when one of Keegan’s high school teacher gave a toast!  Apparently, Keegan was a very entertaining and precocious student and his teacher shared a paper he had written which had everyone in tears from laughter!  After toasts the band had everyone on the dance floor for the rest of the night!  Check out some of my favorite images at their reception.

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!

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

I always love learning about the small details that go into planning each couple’s wedding day.  Becca and Chip had a few special things planned for their big day.

“We are trying to bring in several little touches to make our wedding unique and as much like us as possible. Some of these things include surprising my parents with the string quartet playing their song “Amarillo by Morning” for the recessional at the ceremony. We also have one of Chip’s good friends, Wes Nickson, who is a Texas county singer, perform during the cocktail hour. We will also have pictures of all of our grandparents and parents wedding day portraits on display during the reception.”

After being introduced as husband and wife, the party began and everyone was on the dance floor with the Icehouse band!  We managed to sneak away for a few nighttime photos and then right back to the party!  It was an incredibly fun night, but all good things must come to an end, so we sent the newlyweds off to start their new life with all of their family and friends gathered around them.  Congratulations to Becca and Chip!

Patricia & Jacob – Wedding Reception at The Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, TX

Patricia, Jacob and all of their friends really know how to have fun!  I mean just look at that wedding party!  You know that with a wedding party of that size, it’s going to be a fun night.  After the ceremony, Patricia and Jacob wasted no time in getting out onto the checkered dance floor for their first dance.  They looked so happy to just be together and to finally be husband and wife.  They cut the cake and then it was a party the rest of the night.  The Project Band never disappoints and they rocked that dance floor all night long!  It was such a fun day and I am so glad to have been a part of it.  Congratulations to Patricia and Jacob!

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 Portraits at The Kimbell Art Museum & Reception at The Petroleum ClubFort Worth, TX

Fort Worth holds a special place in Caleb and Magenta’s hearts.  They said,

“We looked for unique ways to make the wedding more “us.” We both have a deep admiration for the city of Fort Worth so we selected venues that really showcased everything we love about the city.”

What is more Fort Worth that Robert Carr Chapel on TCU’s campus and the Petroleum Club that has an amazing view of downtown?  In order to keep with their Fort Worth theme, we stopped over at the Kimbell Art Museum for some more fun wedding party photos!  I love it when I get a little extra time with my couples!  These guys were so much fun and too funny on the party bus.  They probably could have kept that party going on that bus if they wanted to.  After their first dance, Magenta and Caleb said hello to all of their guests who traveled from all over to be there to celebrate with them and then the party really got started!  As promised in the toasts, we got to see some of Magetna’s sweet sweet dance moves and she did not disappoint!  I was so sad to leave the party, but I made sure to get in a photo, myself, with Caleb and Magenta.  I am so grateful that they chose me to capture their special day.  Congratulations Magenta and Caleb!
