Claudia & Patrick – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, TX

Even though we, as vendors, may work at some of the same venues frequently, it does not mean that every wedding is the same.  I enjoy getting to see each event come together with special touches from the couple.  Different things about the day are special to different people and it’s fun for me to get to photograph what is special to each couple.  For Claudia and Patrick it was definitely about the people.  Their guests came from all over and I know they were excited to have everyone in one room!  Claudia says this about her wedding day:

” Our wedding will be a giant melting pot from all over, and that is going to be such an awesome thing! The bride’s side will have a strong Texas, and particularly UT Longhorn showing, as I grew up in Colleyville, TX and then went to school at the The University of Texas in Austin. In addition, both of my parents are from La Paz, Bolivia and actually a good number of my family members still live in South America and will hopefully be able to come up for the wedding. So that will add some good Latin flavor to the Texas melting pot! So now, moving on to the groom’s side… Patrick is my southern gentleman, born and raised in Mobile, AL. After high school, he went to college at the Citadel in Charleston, SC, and then spent some time working in Atlanta, GA, before going back to school in Birmingham, AL. So he has essentially been all around the Southeast and we will have guests from pretty much all of those cities! So to summarize our melting pot; we will have some Texan, some Latin, and some Southern. It is going to be awesome!! And on a more serious tone, we both acknowledge and greatly appreciate the fact that our wedding day is going to be one of the few times in our life together that we will be able to get all of our family and loved ones together in one place. Having everyone in one room to celebrate together with us will most definitely be one of the top highlights of our big day.  We have asked a Patrick’s hometown priest, and long-time friend of his family, Father Dan Good, to marry us in a full mass wedding. With both of us growing up Catholic, this is an important one for us, and I think an awesome way to bring some of Mobile to the wedding. I also plan to walk down the aisle with my grandma’s rosary around my bouquet. I don’t know what my bouquet will look like yet, but my Abu Chachi has always been one my favorite people and having her rosary with me will be very special.”

Sabrina & Bryan – Ceremony at Christ ChapelFort Worth, Texas

Sabrina and Bryan have the sweetest proposal story!  Here is how Sabrina says it happened:

“Bryan took me to St. Louis for a weekend to watch the total eclipse. After a few days in the city of sightseeing and being wined and dined, we went to a park in the city where we watched the eclipse. During the “diamond ring effect” stage of the eclipse, he got down on one knee and proposed!”

These two got married on a beautiful summer day here in Fort Worth!  Check out some of my favorite photos from their ceremony!

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!

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!

Allison & Amir – Engagement Session at the Dallas Arboretum and White Rock LakeDallas, Texas


Allison and Amir traveled from Midland, where they both live and work, for their engagement session.  These two Tech graduates have a sweet story of how they met:

“Amir and I met six years ago at Texas Tech University. I joined Alpha Chi Omega Sorority my first year at TTU. I kept running into Amir at Sigma Nu Fraternity parties through mutual friends. When we had our first conversation it felt like we were the only ones in the room, even though it was filled with at least one hundred people. We had such a memorable two years at TTU together; from attending each others date parties, to cheering on our Red Raiders on the football field.”

I’m excited to share some of my favorite images from their session and can’t wait for their 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!

Hallie & Nathan – Ceremony at First United Methodist Church in Fort WorthFort Worth, Texas

Hallie and Nathan got married on a surprisingly chilly Spring day!   These two love to travel together and started their biggest adventure yet! Here is their fun proposal story :

” We both love golfing, hiking and going on adventures, so we went to Hot Springs, AK for a little summer getaway. On the third day of our vacation, as we were walking on a cool path that overlooked the main drag downtown and decided that would be a good spot to pop down on one knee. He said really sweet things and of course, I said “yes””

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

Lauren & CJ – Wedding Ceremony at Classic Oaks RanchMansfield, TX

You could not ask for a more perfect day for Lauren and CJ!  With a 90% chance of rain all day, it ended up not raining at all and was absolutely beautiful.  Before the ceremony Lauren and CJ exchanged gifts.  It was so sweet when Lauren opened the first part of her gift and it was a Pokemon ball with a little Pikachu in it.  Lauren said that CJ often tells her “I choose you, Pikachu”, which is incredibly adorable.  Then she opened a second gift which contained a diamond necklace that has been in CJ’s family for generations.  After exchanging gifts and getting Lauren’s veil in place, it was time to walk down the aisle.  I always love turning my attention for a quick second to the groom as he anxiously waits to see his bride walking toward him.  CJ definitely wiped a few tears from his eyes as Lauren drew closer to him. During their ceremony, Lauren & CJ sealed a bottle of wine and a couple of letters to each other to be opened on their first anniversary.  It was a beautiful ceremony full of sweet laughter and tears of joy.  Check back for their awesome reception!
