Courtney & Tyler – Wedding Reception at Van Cliburn Recital HallFort Worth, TX

After the ceremony we took a little pit stop at Bass Hall for a few more fun photos!  Courtney and Tyler then made their big entrance and it was time for the party to begin and boy, was it a party!  It’s always fun to see new and different traditions at weddings.  Courtney and Tyler are Aggies and so were a lot of their guests, so they asked all of their Aggie guests to bring their class rings to Tyler’s grooms cake for a photo.  It was neat to see so many rings together, not to mention a little nerve wracking having so much gold in one spot!  Courtney, Tyler and all of their friends and family sure know how to have a good time.  I don’t think that they dance floor was ever empty!  However, all good things must come to an end and we sent the newlyweds off to their Jamaica honeymoon through a tangled web of streamers.  It was a pretty perfect day and I’m so grateful that Courtney and Tyler trusted me to capture it for them.  Congratulations to Courtney and Tyler!

Courtney & Tyler – Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelFort Worth, TX

Oh my goodness!  I cannot stop gushing over Courtney and Tyler’s wedding day!  It was pretty much as perfect as a wedding day can be.  We started the day out getting ready at Courtney’s childhood home where everyone was excited for the day to start.  All of the girls were absolutely stunning with their floor length champagne colored gowns as they watched Courtney put on her wedding dress.  That’s the moment when everything starts feeling real.  Soon after Courtney was dressed, the power in the whole neighborhood went off!  Luckily everyone was done and ready to go.  Once we got to the church it was time for Courtney and Tyler to see each other for the first time.  I do believe Tyler had his breath taken away by seeing his beautiful bride to be in her wedding dress, especially after seeing that amazing illusion back.  We had so much fun with Courtney, Tyler and their wedding party!  Guests started arriving and it was time to get Courtney’s veil on and get her down the aisle!  The ceremony was beautiful with Marty Leonard a lit up at night.  It was an incredibly breathtaking view.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from Courtney and Tyler’s ceremony and be sure to check back for their reception!

Lindsay & Keith – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, TX

Lindsay and Keith had their reception at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth.  The Modern is absolutely one of my favorite places and their reception was made even more special with some personal touches like Lindsay’s sister and brother-in-law singing their first dance song.

“My sister and brother-in-law (Liz and Parker or “The Double Whiskey Straits”) played our first dance song (Queen’s You’re my best friend) and did a mini-set later on in the night. It was really awesome to continue the sister tradition of choosing a Queen song for a first dance (Liz & Parker had Queen’s Fat Bottomed Girls as their first dance) and special because they are so musically talented and it was fun to show em off.”

One thing I always love about the Modern is getting to spend some alone time with my couples in the gallery.  It makes for some amazing photos and some well deserved alone time for Lindsay and Keith.  They were also such troopers by letting me take them outside in the freezing cold to get some photos with the twinkles lights in the trees. The rest of the night was spent catching up with friends and dancing like crazy people on the dance floor.

We had so much fun celebrating with Lindsay, Keith and their families.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their Modern reception.  Congratulations Lindsay and Keith!

Lindsay & Keith – Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelFort Worth, TX

I absolutely love this couple.  Lindsay and Keith are so much fun and know how to make you laugh.  A few minutes with them will brighten your day significantly.  Back when I photographed their engagement session they told me the story of how they met and it is one of the best I’ve heard in a long time! Since I would not be able to do their story justice, Lindsay describes it in her own words:

“Keith and I met at orientation for new jobs at RSM in November of 2014 (Keith in cyber security consulting and me in international tax). Keith introduced himself to me by saying “Hi, I’m Keith Swiat. Not to be confused with Keith Sweat, the R&B singer.” It was 8 in the morning and I had no idea who Keith Sweat was. I sat as far away from him as possible at orientation.  Finally, his resilience and my piqued interest led to a friendly lunch outing where all of our interactions culminated in him: 1) forgetting his umbrella and accepting my offer to share 2) him not realizing he should carry it until I pointed out my arm going numb and my calves cramping from standing on my tiptoes to hold it over his head and 3) Keith informing me he felt like an encased meat as he took the first bite of his meatball sub at my favorite lunch spot (Park Italian). I wasn’t quite sure I liked him until I caught him sniffing me in the coffee shop a week later. His boldness and put himself out there attitude is what I really love about him. Our relationship is built on questionable social behavior and both of us having a great sense of humor.”

Let’s be honest, you know you have met the woman you’re going to marry when she catches you sniffing her and finds it charming.  It was love at first sniff.  Anyway, I was so happy that they chose me to photograph their big day and that I had the chance to get to know this amazing couple!

Tori & Jake – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

What a beautiful night!  Tori and Jake held their reception at the amazing Ashton Depot.  It was lit all warm and glowy, which was the perfect backdrop as they shared their first dance under the chandeliers.  Tori’s dad gave a sweet toast and welcomed Jake into their family, then the party was on!  We had so much fun on the dance floor with this group!  Unfortunately all good things must come to an end and everyone lined up outside as Tori and Jake shared their private last dance.  They then were sent off to start their new lives together!  Thanks so much for letting me capture your big day! Congratulations!

Tori & Jake – Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel at TCUFort Worth, TX

These two Horned Frog alumni are married!  Tori and Jake were married at TCU’s Robert Carr Chapel on a perfect October evening.  We started the day getting ready over at the Worthington in Downtown Fort Worth.  With the TCU game on in the background, it was a pretty chill morning with Tori and her girls.  Things started to get real when it was time to put on the dress.  The tears started to shed once the gown, shoes and veil were all in place.  Tori was absolutely stunning!  Once we got to the church we had a fun time taking photos with the wedding party.  The girls were super cute and sassy, and the boys just plain goofy.  They were all so much fun, I knew that the reception was going to be a good party.  It was then time for the ceremony!  Tori and Jake wrote their own vows which were so sweet, and Tori even threw something in there that made Jake crack up.  They exchanged rings and then were pronounced husband and wife!  It was such a beautiful day and there is still so much more! Check back for their awesome reception!

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!

Hillery and Juan – Wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel and City ClubFort Worth, TX

It may have been a tad windy but it was a beautiful day for Hillery and Juan’s wedding!  We started out at City Club for their first look where apparently the only thing making Juan nervous was me!  I may have made him wait a little longer than he probably wanted to to turn around and see his beautiful bride for the first time.  Hillery was absolutely stunning in her Neiman Marcus gown and if there were any nerves before, they were one once they laid eyes on each other.  We then headed over to Marty Leonard for their ceremony.  They were too cute sitting up there stealing quick looks at one another.  There was so much love and happiness in that chapel, I’m surprised it didn’t burst.  One thing I loved so much about these two is their love for their family.  They were all so close and Juan’s family even made the drive from Washington D.C. to Texas in 24 hours because their flight was cancelled!  But they made it and were able to watch Hillery and Juan become husband and wife.  Back over at City Club, Hillery and Juan were announced and I love how you can see the joy written all over their faces.  They enjoyed catching up with some of their closest friends and family and making sure that everyone knew how appreciated they were.  The night was filled with joy, laughter, love, friendship and dancing.  As the night came to an end, Hillery and Juan were surrounded on the dance floor by all of their guests popping streamers.  It truly was a beautiful day and I am so grateful they chose me to capture it!  Congratulations to Hillery and Juan!

Molly and Sha – Wedding ReceptionWildcatter Ranch - Graham, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 https://lightlyphoto.comI’ve said it multiple times already but let me say it just one more time.  I absolutely adore Molly and Sha!  It always makes me so happy when I can consider my couples, my friends and I truly consider these two my friends.  They have a beautiful love and aren’t afraid to show it off in front of the camera.  It makes me one happy photographer when I can just capture moments and boy did they give me a ton of moments!  Before they began their first dance we were able to sneak away and get a few amazing photos that show off the gorgeous nature surrounding us.  Megan and I were squealing with joy at the beauty we were able to capture.  That’s how you know we love our job so much!  Molly and Sha began their first dance as husband and wife and it was as if they were the only two people out there.  They just soak each other up and forget about the world around them and that is one of the things I love so much about them.  I am so excited that I had the privilege of photographing their big day!  Congratulations Molly and Sha!
