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!

Lindsey & Matt – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel at TCUFort Worth, TX

They are married!!  Lindsey and Matt met at TCU, so what better place to start their new life than getting married at Robert Carr Chapel?

 “We have been together for such a long time, and share many of the same friends. We are so excited to share our day with them and our family, and to celebrate the evolution and stages of our relationship and beginning our next chapter. We are especially excited to get married at the TCU Chapel, since surprisingly, none of our other TCU friends have gotten married there yet (and we have been to a bunch of weddings over the past few years!)”

They began the day getting ready at the Fort Worth Club, where their reception would be held later that evening.  After they were dressed and ready, Lindsey and Matt read notes that they had written to one another.  This is something I really love.  It’s the next best thing to a first look (in my opinion) while still holding true to tradition.  It’s always such a sweet moment, that I love being able to capture, for you to read the words your love has written to you just moments before you see each other walking down the aisle.

It was then time for the ceremony!  The cute little ring bearer practically sprinted down the aisle while the flower girl very carefully placed the flower petals down the aisle.  The doors opened, and Lindsey made her entrance on her father’s arm.  She looked absolutely stunning in her Hayley Paige gown with the illusion neckline and detailed bodice.  It was a beautiful ceremony full of love and laughter!  I hope you enjoy some of my favorite images from their ceremony and check back for their reception!

Lindsey & Kurt – Reception at the 4 ElevenFort Worth, Texas

Lindsey wore her mother’s wedding dress, but had some alterations to it to make it more modern.  I love it when couples incorporate their pairent’s weddings into their day!  After they entered the reception, Lindsey and Kurt started their first dance as husband and wife.  As the song ended Kurt picked her up and spun her around! Such a sweet gesture!  The party got started, and let me tell you, that dance floor was packed the entire night! Even Super Frog was on the dance floor!  Take a look at some of my favorite moments from their reception.

Lindsey & Kurt – Getting Ready & Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelFort Worth, Texas

Lindsey & Kurt are both graduates from TCU and when I first met them, I knew they would have a great wedding.  They day started off with Lindsey getting ready at the new venue, the 4 Eleven, which is amazing!  Lindsey and her dad shared a sweet first look in the courtyard where she received a beautiful pearl bracelet from her dad.  The couple got married at Robert Carr chapel surrounded by friends and family and even had a saber exit after the ceremony!  After they said farewell to guests they hopped into a vintage car that drove us to the stadium to get a few pictures before the reception.  Check out a few of my favorite pictures from the first part of their day!

Lindsey & Matt – Engagement Session at The Dallas Arboretum and Winspear Opera HouseDallas, TX

 

Lindsey and Matt are so cute together!  I had so much fun hanging out with them and their sweet dog, Bear, at their engagement session.  Lindsey and Matt met at TCU and are big Horned Frog fans.  I love how Matt incorporated all of that into his proposal.  Here is their story in Lindsey’s own words:

“Matt did a wonderful job of surprising me! Since TCU is so close to our hearts, Matt planned the perfect proposal at Frog Fountain. Two of our friends from law school, Sanju and Olivia, came in to visit us to go to a baseball game on the weekend of Cinco de Mayo, 2017. On May 6th, we drove out to Fort Worth and had breakfast at Fuzzy’s before the game. We took them on “a tour” around campus on our walk over to the baseball stadium, right by Frog Fountain. All of a sudden Matt was down on one knee and asked me to marry him. It was magical… and I was completely surprised!!! We then went to the baseball game, where I was again surprised that we were going to participate in the first pitch, and that Matt had gotten all of our friends and family to come meet us and join in the celebration and cheer on the frogs at the game! We continued our celebration at dinner with family and close friends (many of which had come from out of town) and after dinner drinks at Nylo. It was truly the perfect day”

I am so excited for their big day which will also be at Robert Carr at TCU!  Go Frogs!

Sarah & Nick – Engagement Session in Downtown Fort Worth and Magnolia AveFort Worth, TX

Sarah and Nick met while in the marching band at TCU.  Since TCU is such a special part of their relationship, Nick chose to incorporate it into his proposal!  Here is how he did it in Sarah’s own words.

“I knew it was coming, but Nick surprised me with making it happen earlier than I thought it would be. He told me that we were going out for a surprise dinner downtown but wouldn’t say anything else. When I asked what I should wear, I started getting suspicious because he responded, “Your green shirt, blue flower pants, orange shoes, Kendra Scott earrings, and pearls!” We got in the car, and he blindfolded me, and we started driving to the TCU stadium. Much to his amusement, I was still able to tell all the roads we were turning onto, so he had to take a more convoluted route. We got out of the car, and still blindfolded, I was led into the stadium. I only figured out where we were when I heard a golf cart go by. He took me to the band section, as that was where we spend a good portion of our time together, and he had the whole area decorated. He un-blindfolded me and handed me a book that he had written and had illustrated and printed. It was a poem of our story with the last page being the proposal!! I said, “Yes!”

Not only did they meet and get engaged at TCU but they will also be getting married there next year!  I cannot wait for their big day!

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!

Lauren & CJ – Engagement Session at Japanese Gardens and TCUFort Worth, TX

I cannot get over how adorable Lauren and CJ are!!  From the moment I met with them I knew they were going to be a blast to photograph.  Lauren and CJ are both TCU alum and Lauren was a Showgirl at TCU, so of course we had to hit up campus for one of their locations! Being a TCU grad myself, I always love having a chance to go back to campus and talk about “the good ole days” with my couples.  These two are so precious and have such amazing chemistry, I couldn’t decide on which images to show!   Lauren and CJ  will be getting married next year at Classic Oaks and I cannot wait!

Brianna & Ross – Portraits at TCU Campus and Reception at the Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, Texas

Brianna & Ross got married in Hawaii (yes please!) and chose to have a reception here in Fort Worth for friends and family who couldn’t make it.  These two cuties met at TCU, so of course we had to go there to get some photos before the reception.  Let me tell you, these two are troopers!  It was a hot day, and by hot I mean Texas hot but they still walked around campus to get some photos!  We were able to explore the galleries at the Modern Art Museum, which is one of my favorite places here in Fort Worth.  They had a beautiful, candlelight dinner with some toasts and cake cutting to finish up the night.  I am so thankful these two allowed me to be a part of their day!
