Christine & Andrew – Wedding Ceremony & Portraits at Nasher Sculpture CenterDallas, Texas


I just love Christine and Andrew and I LOVE the Nasher!  It was the perfect place for this fashionable and sweet couple to say I do!  Christine was stunning in her bridal gown with an overlay and intricate belt and Andrew was so dapper in his cream tux with fabulous shoes.  Every corner of the Nasher Sculpture Center garden offers unique and polished architectural lines and greenery like this weeping willow above.  Their ceremony took place indoors before their night time reception under the stars and lights of the big city!


Shout out to everyone who made Christine’s wedding day perfect!

Morgan & Todd – Wedding Ceremony at Marty Leonard ChapelPreparation at Fort Worth Club

This wedding day was so beautiful!  My favorite part of the day was right before the ceremony.  Morgan & Todd wanted to pray together without seeing each other.  So we set them up outside around a column and they had the most beautiful moment where Todd prayed for their day, their marriage and thanked God for their many blessings.  I totally teared up – it was perfect!  To make it even more spiritual and sweet Todd’s groomsmen prayed for him and Morgan’s bridesmaids prayed for her.  I loved it!

This day was gorgeous in every way!  Thanks to the awesome vendor team who made it all happen:

Jacqueline & Matt – Wedding Ceremony and Portraits at Robert Carr ChapelTexas Christian University

Jacqueline LOVES pictures – so we made sure we had extra time for photos outside and inside of Robert Carr Chapel on the TCU campus.  This couple values friends and family so we made time for photos with all their most important people.  The light was gorgeous as we walked around campus and captured the beauty of TCU and of course my couple!  Paper Planet created a unique laser cut invitation that I just adore for this wedding.  The wedding ceremony was so sweet and my favorite part was as Matt leaned in and whispered to Jacqueline during the unity candle lighting – so super cute!!

Sarah & Derek – Destination Wedding at Lake TahoeTahoe, Nevada

Sarah & Derek were married at a private residence on Lake Tahoe.  This spectacular location had amazing views, lake front access and the perfect little green to say I do!  This rustic elegant wedding was so beautiful!  Sarah and her Mom, Ima Jean, did an amazing job pulling together every single details for this intimate affair.  This couple knew they wanted to keep it small and it was so sweet because just their closest family was in attendance.  Sarah prepared upstairs while Derek got ready downstairs – with just a staircase between them I had to make sure they stayed in their places!  Sarah’s airy skirt and gorgeous detailed bodice was beautiful on here and her cascading curls and unique headpiece made the look!  Derek was dapper in winter suiting with textured layers and colors.  During the ceremony, officiated by Sarah’s sister in law, everyone was smiling – including me!  Tears were totally shed by this lady behind the camera as they vowed to love one another – and all of Sarah’s animals and even Derek’s ducks!  These two are so perfectly suited for each other – it just warms my heart they found one another.  Over an intimate dinner they danced with each other and their parents as the sun set.

Katherine & Mason – Wedding Ceremony & PreperationsAshton Depot & Private Residence

Katherine & Mason’s day was fun and so full of emotion.  We had a blast with them from getting ready at an Air B&B to walking down the aisle.  The girls all stayed the night – had a big slumber party complete with pineapple PJ’s the night before the wedding at the Air B&B where they prepared for the wedding.  The ladies had so much fun laughing, dancing and being silly together.  Mom wasn’t left out either on the fun!  An the Depot these two were married in the courtyard outside in front of the fountain under string lights at sunset.  It was perfect in every way!

Katie & Allen – Wedding Ceremony & First Look at Piazza in the VillageColleyville, Texas

Katie and Allen had a Colleyville wedding at Piazza in the Village.  Katie and her flower girl both matched in fun pink shoes for the wedding and I caught her trying on Katie’s big girl shoes!  From sweet moments with Grandma and Mom it was such  nice time together at the hotel as we prepared to head to the Piazza.  During the first look Katie & Allen were so happy to finally be together – her smile above says it all!

I am excited to share the images from their getting ready, first look and wedding ceremony.  Enjoy!

Amy & Bryce – Wedding Ceremony at Holy Trinity Catholic ChurchDallas, Texas

Amy & Bryce’s wedding day was full of sweet moments like the one above of her and her Daddy’s first look.  I am always smitten with emotion – give me all the feels please!

As we met up at the hotel for preparation Amy and her girl squad looked amazing and her sweet little flower girl just couldn’t get enough camera time – love girls with sass!  Amy dressed in her beautiful gown at Holy Trinity Catholic Church surrounded by her bridesmaids before the big reveal with her Daddy.  Mom helped Dad get a little closer to his daughter before uncovering his eyes for the big reveal – it was such a sweet and emotion filled moment!  During the ceremony Bryce and Amy laughed, smiled and kept stealing glances at one another.  As they exited the church as husband & wife and celebrated with their families you could see how happy these two were to be married!  Congrats Amy & Bryce!!

Taylor & Tyler – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelTCU Fort Worth, Texas

I am so full of happiness for Taylor & Tyler.  They are super cute together and I can tell that they really and completely “get” each other.  From the moment I met them I knew – they are kind, genuine, loving to all and really have compassion for those around them.  They are good people and together they are great!


As they prepared for their wedding I loved the excitement in the room.  Although nothing matched Taylor’s excitement as she opened her pre-wedding gift.  A stuffed puppy!  This little lovey isn’t just to hold but as a sign to come – the golden doodle Tyler found her as a wedding present. Her favorite dog – her obsession.  Tyler knows her well!  I also loved our first look with Dad – Dad’s always make me cry when they see their little girls all dressed in white!


At the chapel as these two said their vows and exchanged rings there were lots of smiles and sweet moments.  These two wrote their own vows filled with funny quips that got a laugh from everyone!


Shoutout to the vendor team that made Taylor & Tyler’s wedding day so beautiful!

Kyndall & Cole – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelTCU in Fort Worth, Texas

This TCU wedding was perfect in every way!  This couple met at TCU and it is now the place they said I do!  When they met Cole immediately knew that Kyndall was special and he pursued her as a friend and eventually a girlfriend.  I think his hard work paid off as Kyndall could not be more in love with Cole.  The excitement leading up to the ceremony was at a 10!  Both, ready to see each other and SO ready to be married!  We met up with these guys at the Fort Worth Omni Hotel for the preparations for the wedding at Texas Christian University.  As Kyndall dressed her Mom looked on with pride and love for her little girl.  When Daddy came into the room to see his daughter, a bride, it was perfect – the hugs, the laughter and a little bit of tears.   So sweet as they exchanged gifts and words before heading off to walk his daughter down the aisle.  Cole and his guys had a good time pre-ceremony with toasts of Whiskey, laughter and fun to ease his nerves and get him ready for the biggest “game day” of his life.  I was truly blessed to watch these two vow to one another love, devotion and respect and I know that God will carry them and their marriage through the life ahead.  Congrats you two!


Kyndall & Cole’s wedding vendor team was perfection!  Huge thanks to:
