Natalie & Ryan {Married First Look & Portraits} University Christian and City Club Fort Worth

Natalie and Ryan’s wedding was quite a beautiful affair.  The details, location and food were magnificent but more on that tomorrow.  Today it is all about their first look and portraits.  Natalie is an event planner out of Houston so she completely understood the importance of photos and knew that to get the most opportunity for images a first look is the way to go.  A few hours before the ceremony we set up Natalie in the courtyard of University christian in her to die for Vera Wang dress (does it look familiar?  Think Kate Hudson in Bride Wars!) and Ryan walked out to her with the biggest grin on his face.  I adored that he was so cautious as he walked up to her, careful not to step on the gown and leaning in for a kiss.  It was sweet that Natalie looked him over and smoothed his hair.  So truthful and a window into their loving marriage that was about to be.  After we took some romantic images of them both before family photos and a very fun night of celebration.  Check back tomorrow for all the details and tear jerking moments!

Grinning, yep, I think he loves her.

So careful but had to get a kiss.

Natalie had to help make him picture perfect.

They had a BIG and super fun bridal party.

The entire crew, bridesmaids, house party, groomsmen, ushers, flower girls and a ring bearer!!

Love this dramatic photo of Natalie in the church with her veil.

We never miss an opportunity to take advantage of the amazing downtown Fort Worth views from City Club‘s balcony.

It was a TCU kinda crowd, go Horned Frogs!!!
