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!

When a couple walks out of their ceremony just smiling and looking at each other it is the best thing ever!  I love how much Kristin and Michael are into each other!  During this ceremony there were so many smiles, stollen glances and sweet moments.  Dove Ridge is situated on top of a hill with amazing views and this outdoor covered space is the perfect place to have your ceremony out of the bright summer sun!

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

Hey!  Look at this beautifully remodeled and fresh new look at Robert Carr Chapel!  The iconic church on the campus of Texas Christian University just finished a long renovation earlier this month and I was SO excited to see it finished.  I love the updated color palette, new floors, expanded altar and all the amazing amenities they have added.  Can’t wait for all  my upcoming weddings here!

Okay, enough about the new look at Robert Carr – back to Bethany & Tyler!  Before walking down the aisle Bethany’s friends laid hands on her and prayed over her, the wedding and her life ahead as a Mrs.  It was so sweet!  During the ceremony these two were all smiles and I can’t blame them – I was too!  Their pastor was hilarious – he gave a challenging word of inspiration.  Pushing them to seek after a marriage that was full, overflowing and rich in all things – like a big gulp!  Yes, a big gulp, and he had the cup to drive the point home as a prop!  After saying I do, embracing the idea of a marriage that is MORE they kissed and it was done!  They were married!

Robert Carr isn’t just gorgeous inside, it is outside as well and we took some beautiful photos of these two on the steps and around the chapel.

Liz & Thomas – Wedding Ceremony & Reception at Omni HotelFort Worth, Texas

Liz & Thomas have a love story that is full of hope!  I love these two and getting to know them, their children and friends made my heart so full!  God most definitely brought these two together, living in the same neighborhood and attending the same parish for years these two had never met.  Until one morning Liz was having a house emergency with a major water leak – and Thomas who just happens to own a plumbing company strolled by.  An offer of help, an exchange of a card, an invitation for a glass of wine and now they have fulfilled each others hopes for a soulmate and life partner!  They know how to live life to the fullest and love fiercely – not just each other but every person in their lives.  Hearing the sweet words of their children as they toasted their parents at the reception brought tears to my eyes.  I was an emotion filled day – as you can see from the photo above when Thomas first saw Liz during their first look – but it was overflowing with FUN too!

 

Thank you both for trusting me to be with you, for sharing your family with me and most of all for being such a great fulfillment of the promise of God’s timing and plan.  I know He has great things in store for you and your families!

Shelby & Whilden – First United Methodist ChurchCeremony and First Look

Shelby and Whilden are the cutest!  These two were so excited to get married and they could not wait to see each other.  Whilden was anxious but when he walked out of the door of the First United Methodist Church you could see it all melt away.  Shelby was all smiles to finally be beside her groom!  After some beautiful photos outside of the church with family and friends these two said I do in the main sanctuary.

Jennifer & Stephen – Wedding Ceremony at La Cantera ResortSan Antonio, Texas

For this amazing Texas Destination wedding we traveled to La Cantera Resort outside of San Antonio.  This couple found a happy medium between being away and doing something accessible to their family and friends.  They spent several days pool side with their favorite people and had a beautiful wedding celebration on property at the resort.  Jennifer & Stephen have known each other since high school but have just been dating the last few years as life brought them back together.

 

Prior to the ceremony Jennifer and Stephen wanted to stay traditional but still share a special moment together.  Around the corner – without seeing one another – they exchanged gifts, had a few sweet moments and some laughter together.  I loved this surprised look as Jennifer saw her gift – she really wanted two bands to compliment her engagement ring but Stephen said that would have to wait – but he was tricky!  She was so excited!

 

During the ceremony overlooking the Texas Hill Country these two said I do!

Annie & Josh – Wedding Ceremony at MOPACFort Worth, Texas

Annie & Josh are married!  On a super windy day these two said I Do at MOPAC in Fort Worth.  Annie is on my Lightly Photography team so this wedding was like photographing family.  I love this girl!  Josh is so the perfect husband for her as I know they have pushed one another to grow and that they live well together with lots of laughter.

 

We kicked off their day at MOPAC where the ladies were beautified by the Love & Pout team.  Before the ceremony Annie & Josh shared a prayer around a door and a few moments of silliness.  I love when my couples choose to come together in prayer before their weddings – you don’t have to see each other to have a special moment!  During the ceremony the wind was fierce – but God was present as these two vowed to love each other and to follow Christ and lead each other.  I may have cried a few times. 🙂

Thank you to everyone who made this day special – you know I appreciate you for making my friend’s day so perfect:

Leigh Anne & Andrew – Wedding at Bella Sera RanchPalestine, Texas

Leigh Anne & Andrew’s wedding day was FULL of emotion.  I can not even count the amount of times we cried happy tears behind our cameras!  Not only were we a tad emotional everyone else was too – this may be my most joyful tearful wedding ever!  When Leigh Anne and Andrew met he KNEW she was the one.  Not a doubt in his mind – he found a journal and wrote her a note – that if she was reading this then today was their wedding day.  In that journal he filled it with their story from dating to proposal and leading up to the wedding day.  On the wedding day she opened the journal as his gift to her.  It was so super sweet!!  This kind of thoughtfulness was woven through out the entire wedding day.
