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!

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding First Look and Wedding Party PortraitsTrinity Park, Fort Worth

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!

The Ashton Depot is one of my fave places to photograph – beautiful architecture, a rich history and one of the best teams around!  Their food is out of this world amazing!  Shelby’s color pallete of soft whites and creams with touches of blue and soft peach and pinks was beautiful.  Shelby and Whilden had a fun filled reception.  Thanks to the following team who made the party such a success:

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.

Thank you to the vendor team who made this day so beautiful and flawless:

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

THIS!  This is why you get married in the Texas Hill country!  So pretty!  La Cantera Resort had some great spots for romantic portraits of Stephen & Jennifer. They were such good sports in going to my out of the way spots and I am pretty sure it was worth it.  Their bridesmaids, groomsmen and attendants were so much fun and I loved all the silly props and cute things they brought to make the photos special to them.

Thank you to the vendors who made it all so pretty!

Annie & Josh – Couples Portraits & Wedding PartyMOPAC & Trinity Trail

My girl Annie loves nature, greenery and all things outside.  You can see it in Annie & Josh’s choices for their entire wedding.  MOPAC is a super cool building to have your ceremony and reception at with historic features, rustic brick and fun decor.  Such a fun spot for bridesmaids and groomsmen photos!  I loved the vibe in the ceremony space with draped fabric and asymmetric floral.  We wanted to bring a nature spin to their day though so I scouted out the perfect spot on the Trinity Trails for us to escape to for a few romantic portraits during cocktail hour.  With warm golden light and big trees we had so much fun for some sweet photos.  We also were able to snag a portrait in their reception space!  One of my fave things to do.

Thanks to the vendors that made Annie & Josh look SO good!

Allison & Allen – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, Texas

Allison & Allen had a fabulous party to celebrate their marriage at The Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth.  This NYC couple was surrounded by friends and family as they danced and partied the night away.  Having a fab time was super important to them – they actually flew in a DJ from Israel that they had seen at a friends wedding. His European style of mixing kept the dance floor packed all night long!  The Modern was beautiful in elegant tulips in purples and whites with clean lined acrylic accents on the head table.  Gro Designs always surprises me with their decor and ideas from flowers to linens.

My favorite moment of the reception is above.  They spent the night dancing with friends but this quiet moment on the dance floor was perfection.  Amidst the crowd they just melt into each other – So much love and respect for one another.

Huge shout out to all the vendors who made this Fort Worth wedding reception a hit!

Allison & Allen – First Look and Romantic PortraitsOmni Hotel & Marty Leonard Chapel

Allison and Allen chose to see each other before their ceremony at Marty Leonard Chapel.  Allen awaited to turn and see his bride at The Omni Hotel in Fort Worth.  As he finally turned and saw Allison in her classically tailored and sleek gown you could see they were both so happy to be together.  They decided to read the letters they had written one another for the wedding day together before taking some romantic portraits on site and at the chapel.
