Melissa & Doug – Wedding Ceremony at First United Methodist ChurchFort Worth, Texas

Melissa and Doug had a beautiful wedding at First United Methodist Church in Fort Worth a few weeks ago.  The couple selected this church because many of Doug’s family members have married here over the years so it was the perfect nod to tradition.  The couple loves old world architecture and the classic archways were the perfect backdrop for their portraits and first look!  For this spring wedding God totally blessed us and gave us some sunshine and clear skies right up until we were finishing with outdoor portraits!  Then the rain came!  Could not have had better timing.

Ashely & Jim – Wedding Ceremony at Highland Park United MethodistDallas, Texas


An online dating app brought these two together in 2015 and the timing could not have been more perfect for them.  Through their relationship they have travelled the world, overcome life and job changes and stood firm in their faith against illness.  The love they have for each other is truly beautiful and their firm foundation in Christ in undeniable.  To celebrate their love for the Lord and that Ashley has overcome illness during the ceremony Jim played a worship song – Blessings. This song was their rock, her anthem fighting through treatment over the last year but it was also a declaration of God’s love.  It was so beautiful and sweet and I sang along with joy for the truth that is God’s work in Ashley and Jim’s life.

I love what Ashley says about Jim:

“I don’t know that I’ve ever met anyone with a heart as big as Jim, who would 110% rather give than receive. Fortunately for me, I ‘ve managed to be on the receiving end of his generosity and I know that a huge part of Jim said,” I DO,” 20 months ago. For that……Gratitude.”

Jim is a good man and he love’s Ashley for her heart:

“I learned long ago that you can tell a lot about a person by looking at how loyal they are to their friends and how loyal their friends are to them. Ashley has so many loyal and caring people in her life, and after being with her for two years now, I know why. Her caring spirit, her dedication to serving others, and her willingness to always be there for those closest to her are traits that I have come to love and cherish. I will always look up to Ashley for how she treats others and she truly does show her strong Christian faith through her love for others.”

Thank you to all the vendor’s who made this celebration such a special one!

Madeleine & Joe had an amazing winter wedding.  After a sweet and emotion filled ceremony at Holy Family Catholic Church we celebrated at Shady Oaks Country Club.  I loved that Madeleine embraced the season and had winter inspired floral and even had Santa & Mrs. Claus greeting their guests.  It was truly a magical night.

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!

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!
