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!

I just love this photo above!  I think it perfectly captures the joy and ease of this perfect wedding day!  After getting ready at a nearby hotel Christine & Andrew selected the arts district for their first look.  When he turned to see his bride they were full of smiles, a few tears and big hugs!  As we walked to the reflection pool outside of the Winspear these two were just laughing, talking and enjoying each other.  It is exactly what a wedding day should be like!  Thank you to all the other vendors who made this day stress free for Christine and Andrew so they could laugh and enjoy their wedding:

Morgan & Todd had a lovely Fall nighttime wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel – afterwards we played in the dark and utilized the soft lighting of the church at night.  Then – we partied!  The Fort Worth Club looked stunning in pale pinks and neutrals and gold.  Everyone had an amazing time on the dance floor – So many good moments!

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.

Brooklyn & Eric – Wedding Reception at Bass Hall – Van CliburnFort Worth, Texas

I am SOOOO in love with the photos from Brooklyn & Eric’s wedding – these two just LOVE each other fiercely and when they are together you can see it clearly.  As I hadn’t met Eric before the wedding this was my first chance to see these two together.  All night long he kept her in his arms, smiles on their faces and LOTS of kisses.  For romantic portraits of the two of them we headed to a nearby outdoor spot where we had great architectural lines and some greenery.  As the party got under way Brooklyn and her Daddy’s special dance stole the show – their choreographed fun routine showed off not only their mad dance moves but how much he cherishes his little girl.  During the reception everyone danced and had a festive time.

Thank you to all the vendors who made Brooklyn & Eric’s day beautiful:
