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!

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

Wow.  What an incredible couple Ali and Caleb are!    I love how Caleb describes the way they first met and their courtship after that led to marriage!  Here is their story in his own words.

“It was the summer of 2015, and I was complaining to one of my best friends of how tired I was of being single and hated the entire process of first dates. My friend Amy listened patiently and began to plant inconspicuous seeds of getting to know Alexandra, the soon to be love of my life. I was taken aback because Ali not only lived 3.5 hrs away, but was also a devout Fighting Texas Aggie and in my opinion not my type. My how I was so wrong!!!!!! It was not until the Winter of 2016, that I finally took Amy up on her suggestion and boldly asked Ali out on a blind date to the Twisted Root burger and beer joint in a suburb of Dallas. I instantaneously felt a connection and could not help but see the beauty and kindness she had within. We spoke a few hours of family and friends and things seemed to flow so organically. A few days after our first encounter, I asked if I could call her and a few phone calls turned into another in person date.

Here is where the story goes south for about two weeks……… I got scared and nervous and did not follow up after our last date.

It finally was about a week before our awesome friend Amy’s wedding, when I asked to see her again. I knew it was a long shot, because I was kind of a jerk but she kindly accepted my offer and went as my date.

We nervously met up the night before our mutual friend’s wedding in San Marcos, where I introduced her to my stomping grounds, which included a sub-par burger joint and fantastic wine bar experience.

The organic conversations that fueled our first encounter was back, as we didn’t skip a beat. I remember loving how natural I felt with Ali and hoped this would be my forever partner in crime.

The following day, Ali and I met up to attend the nuptials of Henry and Amy. I was insanely nervous and knew that I was about to embark on the most incredible journey and adventure of a lifetime………. I just didn’t know how amazing it was going to be.

After the wedding, I asked if we could sit and chat a while. I nervously told her I liked her in the most awkward way possible and didn’t know how it would work, but wanted it to work. She replied by inviting me to meet [her family] and I excitedly accepted her offer. I had no clue the amazing journey to marriage I was about to experience.

It has been a year since Ali and I first met. My heart still skips a beat when I gaze into her eyes. She makes me a better man and I cannot wait to make her my wife.”

With only having 2 weddings left in 2017, I couldn’t be more excited they they were one of them. These two are quite possibly the sweetest and most genuine people you’ll ever meet and their excitement for life is so infectious.  Usually it’s my couples’ faces that hurt after smiling so much for photos, but this time I found my own face hurting from all of the smiling from just being around them and their families.  Enjoy some of my favorite moments from their ceremony and check back for their amazing 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!

Nicole and Eric – Wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel and Fort Worth ClubFort Worth, Tx

What a beautiful day for a wedding!  Nicole and Eric were married at Marty Leonard Chapel in Fort Worth and it couldn’t have been more perfect.  They had a few sweet traditions like the lassoing of the rosary and the coin tradition.  Right before they were pronounced husband and wife, Eric’s kids were invited up to the altar for a special blessing on their new family.  It always warms my heart to see such a blessing and promise take place.  Nicole and Eric had a vintage car right outside of the chapel waiting to take them to their reception, so we got some dreamy photos with it!  Nicole and Eric had a few surprises up their sleeves at the reception.  First the guests were entertained with a mariachi band during dinner, then surprised Eric’s mom with her very own birthday cake!  During the father daughter dance, Nicole and her dad started off with a traditional dance and then busted out into a rap dance! It was so much fun and I loved how joyful Nicole and her dad looked sharing that moment together.  Nicole, Eric and their guests danced the night away until it was time to send them on their way!  We had so much fun celebrating with these two and wish them the best of luck!

Lauren and Greg – Wedding at The Renaissance Worthington HotelFort Worth, Texas

It may have been a gloomy January day outside, but inside the ballrooms of the Worthington it was the exact opposite.  Lauren and Greg spent the day surrounded by family and friends as they prepared for their marriage and new life together.  They had a few minutes to themselves during their first look before beginning all of their wedding day events.  Then it was time for the signing of the Ketubah and wedding ceremony.  Lauren looked beautiful as she walked arm in arm with her parents to her future groom.  One thing that I loved about the Jewish ceremony was that the parents stood under the Chuppah with the couple.  What a wonderful way to watch your child be married!  Once they were pronounced husband and wife it was time to celebrate!  Thanks to Jamie and the rest of the team at Tami Winn Events, the ballroom was transformed into the winter wonderland that Lauren had her heart set on and everyone enjoyed the music by one of my favorite bands, Professor D!  It was so much fun to be out on the dance floor with everyone, especially during the Hora!  After all of the fun and dancing it was time to send the couple off to their new life together.  They were sent off through a tunnel of sparklers and taken away in a horse drawn carriage.  Congratulations to Lauren and Greg!

Hailey and Ted – First Look and Wedding CeremonyWarwick Melrose & Holy Trinity Catholic Church - Dallas, TX

Wedding Holy Trinity Catholic Church Melrose Warwick Hotel Dallas Texas Classic Wedding Amanda McCollu Lightly Photography-078

I cannot even describe how excited I am about this wedding!  I have been ooooing and awwing over it ever since I got to the hotel that day.  I loved working with Hailey and Ted after their engagement session and I knew their wedding was one to look forward to!  Hailey was absolutely stunning in  her dress and Ted couldn’t have looked more dapper.  They just look like they stepped right out of old hollywood or something.  They are such a glamorous couple and just as sweet as they can be.  They had their first look out on the balcony at the Warwick Melrose Hotel in Dallas, where their reception was to be held later that evening.  We then headed down the street to Holy Trinity Catholic Church and they were married!  I can’t say enough how much I love this sweet couple and their families.  It is always a wonderful thing for me to experience when I can just feel the love that my couples have for each other throughout every moment of the day and I, without a doubt, got to experience that with Hailey, Ted and their family.  Please check back for their fun reception photos!

Joy & John – Wedding at The Omni MandalayLas Colinas, Tx

Lightly Photography 2016 https://lightlyphoto.com

I am excited to share the images from Joy and John’s wedding day!  These guys are dear friends of my aunt and uncle and I feel so privileged that they chose me as their photographer! Joy spent the morning getting ready with some of her college friends and her two children.  It was so sweet when her daughter helped her get into her wedding dress.  The ceremony was officiated by Joy’s brother and he had some beautiful things to say about Joy, John and their new family.  Afterward, they entered their reception and were ready to party!  The Inversion band had everyone up on the dance floor all night long.  Nobody wanted to leave!!  It was a beautiful and happy day surrounded by close family and friends.  Congratulations Joy and John!

Gentry and Andrew – Wedding CeremonyGrace Bible Church - College Station, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 https://lightlyphoto.com

Gentry and Andrew are married!  They were married at Grace Bible Church in College Station where both Gentry and Andrew went to school at Texas A&M. It also just so happened to be the weekend of the NCAA Baseball Super Regional, where my TCU Horned Frogs were playing the Aggies.  So needless to say I was a little bit outnumbered when it came to talking about the game but we had so much fun with Gentry, Andrew and all of their family and friends.  The ceremony was so beautiful and I loved capturing all of the sweet little looks and glances between Andrew and Gentry as they stood waiting to recite their vows.  You could really feel the love and happiness just radiating off of them.  I don’t think either one of them ever really stopped smiling!  Afterward we hung around the church to get some photos of just the two of them and they were just too cute.   They were still smiling just as big as they were during the ceremony and couldn’t take their eyes off of each other!  Enjoy some of my favorites from their ceremony and check back for their Downtown Bryan Reception!

Autumn and Joe – First Look, Wedding Ceremony and ReceptionArborlawn Methodist & Stonegate Mansion - Fort Worth, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 https://lightlyphoto.comAutumn & Joe were married just a couple of weeks ago at Arborlawn Methodist Church in Fort Worth.  Although both Autumn and Joe are very go with the flow, laid back kind of people, you could tell that the nerves were flowing that morning.  All was pretty quite and calm while hair and makeup was going on, so I think that gives you a little more time to let everything sink in and hit you.  Autumn was so sweet as she sat preparing to get into her gown, finally seeing everything start to come together and all of a sudden it all became very real.  The day is here and they would be getting married in just few hours!  I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, this is why I love first looks!  Once Autumn and Joe saw each other for the first time, you could just sense a calming feeling come over them.  There is something incredibly romantic about another person being able to completely wipe away your nerves just by seeing them.  I love getting to witness that connection between two people.  Once the ceremony ended, they were announced husband and wife and it was on to Stonegate Mansion for the party!  You could tell how loved and admired Autumn and Joe are as individuals and as a couple not just by the beautiful toasts given, but also by the way they mingled with their guests.  It was an honor to work with such a sweet couple and their families.  Please enjoy a few of my favorite images from their big day!

Caitlin and Tom – First Look and Wedding CeremonyLone Star Mansion - Burleson, TX

Lightly Photography 2016 https://lightlyphoto.com

They say it’s good luck for it to rain on your wedding day.  Well, Caitlin and Tom are pretty darn lucky, because not only did it rain on their wedding day, it also stopped just in time for their ceremony!  The whole morning it looked as though the rain might hold off but of course as soon as we are preparing to do their first look, it starts to pour.  No worries though!  We were still able to have their first look out on the big front porch of the mansion.  Man, was Tom’s face worth it when he saw Cait!  I mean his jaw literally dropped!  And why shouldn’t it have?  She looked absolutely stunning!  Once it was time for guests to begin arriving, the rain let up and the sun started to pop out from behind the clouds.  The ceremony was beautiful with a background of bright windows opening up to a view of green trees.  Once they were pronounced as husband and wife, all of the family and friends placed their hands out in a special prayer on the newlyweds.  It was so sweet and such a great way to begin their first steps as husband and wife.  Please enjoy some of my favorites from their first look and ceremony!  Be sure to check back soon for their reception that was one heck of a party!!
