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 Reception at Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

Jacqueline & Matt’s wedding was AMAZING!  I love photographing at the Ashton Depot but Tami Winn transformed the space, accentuated the gorgeous architectual details then brought in unique touches like the custom laser cut columns and draped greenery.  It was just beautiful!  This wedding reception was only pretty but it was FUN!  Jacqueline and Matt hopped from dancing to visiting and made some stops to their MirMir photo booth!  The band, brought from Memphis, pulled Jacqueline up on stage with her bridesmaids for some fun dancing!  As the guests prepped outside for a sparkler exit Jacqueline and Matt shared a few special moments alone on the dance floor.

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!!

Jacqueline & Matt – Wedding Preparations & First Look at Omni HotelFort Worth, Texas

 

Jacqueline and Matt met while in college in Tulsa, Oklahoma and now they are married!

 

Jacqueline and her bridesmaids prepped for the big day in a suite at the Omni Hotel in Fort Worth.  The girls had a blast listening to tunes, chatting and taking photos as they waited anxiously for the ceremony.  Jacqueline’s dress was amazing with layered bold lace and an elegant silhouette.  There was so much joy as she dressed and slipped into her special blue heels for her something blue!  Matt met us on the rooftop for his first look at his bride.  When he turned his jaw dropped – she was truly gorgeous!  I loved that they both were so happy, embracing and relieved to finally be together.

 

After a few romantic photos we headed over to TCU for their wedding!

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.

Sarah & Derek – Engagement Portraits in Lake TahoeSpooner Lake & Kings Beach


Sarah & Derek love the outdoors.  While dating they took a trip to Tahoe and so as it came time to select a location for their wedding they  knew immediately they wanted to go to Tahoe.  With this space having such a value to them we also waited to photograph their engagement session until the eve of their wedding.  They love to hike so we set out to one of the trails they enjoyed on their first trip to the Lake Tahoe area – Spooner Lake.  We had a great 2 mile hike and took SOO many photos, chatted, laughed and talked about life.  It was truly so special to spend time with them!  All that hiking worked up an appetite so we ended our session in Kings Beach for a few lake photos and some ice cream!  Yum!  This woodsy fall photo shoot was absolute perfection.  I love when I get the opportunity to travel with my clients and adventure along side them. Thanks Derek & Sarah for inviting me into your lives and trusting me with your special moments!

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!
