Amy & Bryce – Wedding Portraits at Holy Trinity Catholic & Union StationDallas, Texas

Amy & Bryce gave me SO much time for portraits of the two of them and I had a blast with them!  We spent time photographing the couple and their bridesmaids and groomsmen outside of the church and these beautiful wooden arched doorways.  It was gorgeous and their friends were a blast as you can see below.  Amy’s bridesmaids were stunning in vibrant blue gowns and pale pink and white bouquets!  Their bright was the perfect compliment to Amy’s soft and airy wedding gown.  Bryce and his men looked dapper in their grey suits with gray ties from Al’s Formal Wear.

After a special reveal at Union Station – Amy was so happy to get a sneak peek at her reception before the guests arrived – we headed outside and strolled around the nearby downtown area for some photos of just the two of them.  We played near the fountain, found some art, strolled the city streets and enjoyed a park bench break before it was time to party with their closest friends!

Thank you to all the vendors that made every detail so pretty:

Taylor & Tyler – Wedding Reception at City Club Fort WorthTexas

Taylor & Tyler’s wedding reception was beautiful in pinks and naturals at The City Club of Fort Worth!  The ballroom there always sparkles and there is something else I love about this venue – it is always a GREAT PARTY!  The atmosphere is just perfect for dancing all night, an amazing band and lots of fun!  Before we got to into the evening we snuck away for some night time photos not he balcony overlooking downtown Fort Worth.  I loved the TCU Purple lights on the buildings.  As the night went on these two danced, found themselves on the stage a few times and had a great time celebrating with their friends.  We had so much fun celebrating with you two – I can’t wait to see all the future holds!

 

Thank you to the wedding vendors who executed Taylor’s vision and made her day so fun!

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 Portraits at Texas Christian UniversityFort Worth, Texas

They say rain is good luck on a wedding day and if that is true Kyndall and Cole will walk through their marriage with luck at their side!  We all expect July weddings to be hot but on this day a surprise summer storm popped up just as these two were about to say I do!  The rain was outside so we played inside!  The new renovations at Robert Carr Chapel look awesome and you can see how crisp and beautiful this classic chapel is in these photos.  The rain just wouldn’t let up but we didn’t let that stop us from getting some photos in the Horned Frog Football Stadium!  At the Amon Carter Stadium it was drizzly and humid but we embraced the day and the humidity for some super cute photos for these TCU alumni.

 

Thank you to the vendors who made Kyndall & Cole’s day so beautiful!

Kristin & Michael – Portraits at Dove Ridge VineyardFort Worth, Texas

Check out those sunset hues!  This is why Kristin & Michael selected Dove Ridge Vineyard for their wedding – the stunning hilltop views at this ranch like location are stunning.  These two are so sweet together and were ultra lovey and cute on this rather blustery day.  As the sun set we stole away a few moments for sunset photos twice!  The sky slowly changed and as it did we had to get a photo with these golden and blue hues.

I can’t wait to photograph out here again as the vines in the vineyard below begin to mature and grow!  This place is perfect already and it is only going to get better!

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

This wedding reception is one I will likely never forget.  At the end of the night I told Tyler that he is one of the coolest and most fun groom’s I have ever worked with.  Tyler and Bethany both are a joy to be around and they made the best of their 4 hour reception.  I am pretty sure they danced, hugged, talked and laughed with at least every guest they had.  From the moment they walked in the tone was set for a killer night – as the doors opened and the band announced the Mr & Mrs and played “All I do is Win”  these two entered the reception arms in the air and tore up the dance floor before their first dance had even begun.  Their entrance was epic and it didn’t stop there.  Reception’s are about more than the couple – they are about all the invited guest and loved ones.  During this party I loved watching the parents interact with one another and their children.  We caught Tyler hugging Bethany’s parents, chatting up his Dad and brother and being a little crazy on the stage with the band.  Bethany sang with the band from the dance floor, had fun dancing beside her husband and stole lots of kisses from him all night.

To top all of that – Bethany and Tyler are my 4th couple in a group of friends I have been so lucky to photograph.  Having 3 of my past couples dancing along side me as I captured this night was priceless.  Building relationships with my couples and seeing them time and again at other friends weddings is such a huge reward.  I’m looking forward to sharing the dance floor with all 8 of them next year at another one!

Look at how cute and excited these two were to finally see each other!  Bethany knew she wanted a location that was green and lush for her first sight with Tyler.  We selected Trinity Park for just that reason and it was gorgeous!  Right before he turned I asked him what he thought her dress might look like and he may have been a little off on his expectations but he was not disappointed when he turned to see Bethany.  After some photos of the two of them alone they were joined by their bridesmaids and groomsmen for wedding party photos.

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.
