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!

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!

Brynn & Michael – Getting Ready and First Look at Private ResidenceFort Worth, TX

I LOVE first looks!  They are one of my favorite parts of the day and Brynn and Michael’s first look was absolutely precious.  I asked Michael what he thought Brynn’s dress looked like and he was very close with his description!  He knows his bride very well.  As soon as he turned around to see Brynn for the first time, the biggest smile appeared on his face and Brynn was overcome with emotion.  You could feel the love they have for each other just as they stood there talking to each other.  I know they couldn’t wait much longer for the ceremony to begin so that they could become husband and wife!  Enjoy some of my favorites from their very sweet first look and check back for their backyard wedding and reception!

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 Ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel at TCUFort Worth, TX

What a beautiful day for Magenta and Caleb’s wedding!  There are always so many factors and moving parts to a wedding day but what I love most is that at the end of the day, all that matters is the love that you have for each other.  I know Magenta and Caleb could not wait to become husband and wife and you can tell from their story just how patient they have been throughout their entire relationship.

“We first met while working together the fall of 2013. We worked on the same team and became good friends while working on various projects together. Our friendship continued after Magenta was transferred to Minneapolis for work and we soon began a long distance relationship from across the country. Via FaceTime and many weekend trips to see one another, we soon fell in love and hoped that we would soon live in the same state again sometime soon. In June of 2015, to everyone’s surprise, Magenta was transferred back to the DFW area allowing our relationship to enter a new phase now that we lived close to one another. After a few months of continuing our now close distance relationship, Caleb proposed to Magenta at the Gaylord Texan on Christmas Eve of 2016 in front of both of our families.”

I am so excited for these two and I can’t wait to see what the future brings them!

Hollis & Joey – First Look and Wedding Ceremony at All Saints Episcopal ChurchFort Worth, TX

Hollis and Joey’s big day was absolutely beautiful!  It was full of so much joy, emotion, laughter and fun. Hollis and Joey chose to do a first look, where they saw each other for the first time before the ceremony.  Their friends were so cute as they spied through the window to watch.  Hollis showed off her dress to her almost hubby and he gave a huge thumbs up.  I love first looks because they always seem to calm the nerves but at the same time bring out the excitement!  You know it’s getting real at that point and that you are about to marry the person of your dreams.  It was then time for the ceremony and everyone was in their place.  As it came time for Hollis to walk down the aisle I caught a glimpse of her in the stairwell, she was overcome with emotions, I could tell that she couldn’t wait to get down that aisle. It was one of my favorite moments of the night.  After a few moments of waiting with her sweet dad, the doors opened and she made her way to Joey.  It was a beautiful ceremony and now they are husband and wife!!  Check back for their fun Modern reception.

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!

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!
