Laura & David – Wedding Ceremony at Classic Oaks Ranch

Lightly Photography 2016

I LOVE an emotional couple and Laura & David are like my dream clients – these two love each other and are not afraid to show it.  David is such a cutie – I mean – look at his reaction (above) as he watched his beautiful Laura walk down the aisle to him!  What more can you ask for in a man?  Well, that was just the start.  This loving man had sweet words and nice gestures all day for his beloved – it made me cry SO many times!!!  During the ceremony the vows they had for each other were heartfelt and true and during the ceremony David was SO excited to be marrying his bride he couldn’t stop talking.  He wasn’t afraid to speak up and say how beautiful she was, lucky he was and in love with her he was.  Their ceremony had me crying, smiling and with goose bumps!  Laura was so thoughtful in all she did – from fun custom boots for her groom to perfect gifts for all the parents.  During the ceremony and every time she was near him, she was just glowing.

It was a pretty amazing day!

Megan & Dylan – First Look & PortraitsWedding Day in Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2016

Just look at that!  See!  I am in love with this day and all the feelings that just bubbled over from start to finish.  Megan and Dylan chose to see each other before their TCU Robert Carr Chapel wedding ceremony.  We set up Dylan on the deck at The Omni Hotel Fort Worth as he awaited his bride.  He was so ready to see her and just before he turned around to see Megan I asked him what he thought her dress looked like, he nailed it!  Dylan knows his sweet Megan well, he said her gown was big and sparkly.  🙂 Love that!  When he turned these two both just burst out in tears of joy – their day had finally arrived!!!

After some emotion, hugging it out and catching up on their day we took some romantic portraits before heading over to the Kimbell Art Museum with the bridesmaids and groomsmen for some fun photo ops.  The clean lines and bright light colors of the architecture outside there perfectly balanced the reception space at The Modern Art Museum.  I really could just photograph these two for hours alone – they were so adorable.  But, they kind of needed to get to the chapel and get married so I had to let them go.

Katie & Jason – Wedding Ceremony at St. Patricks Cathedralwith preparations at Omni Fort Worth

Lightly Photography 2016

This wedding had all the feels – laughter, tears and some super funny faces (see above!)  Katie and Jason had a pretty perfect day in my books and I was blessed to document it for them.  We kicked off their Fort Worth wedding at The Omni Hotel for some preparations and a first look (check out their first look blog post here!).  Mom and sister were at her side as she slipped into her gorgeous gown before seeing Daddy for the first time – He wrapped his arms around her in a huge hug and she totally got teary.  🙂

After some fun photos on the rooftop garden we headed over to St Patricks Cathedral so these two could finally get married!  Their ceremony was full of sweet moments and I had the best seat in the house!  Churches all have rules about where we can stand and what we can or can not photograph but at St Patricks I have the best view – I get to see their faces!  While the audience sees their backs I get all the stolen glances, quirky looks and smiles.  Hidden behind the altar I really get to see how much these two love one another.

And just like that they were married!  Check back for  their awesome reception that actually started the moment they walked outside the church!?!  It was legendary!

Shout out to the entire wedding vendor team that pulled off a fantastic day for Jason & Katie:

Katie & Jason – First Look at The Omni HotelFort Worth, Texas

Lightly Photography 2016

Katie & Jason are so freaking adorable!  I mean, seriously!  Look at them!  Their first look brought tears to my eyes.  Standing in the garden at The Omni Fort Worth with Jason just waiting for Katie he was so excited.  When he could finally turn his reaction was priceless and what followed was great hugs and precious, tender moments. I am so glad I got to share in this special reveal with the two of them.  It was the perfect peaceful moment before their ceremony and reception.  Katie is gorgeous (I know Jason agrees!) and did you see her dress?  It is phenomenal, that back just makes my heart skip a beat.  LOVE!  Feast your eyes on all the pretty from their first sight and some romantics on the rooftop at The Omni Hotel!

Thanks so much to the amazing team of wedding vendors who made this day so pretty!

Brandi & TJ {Married – Part 2 Moments} Old Red Courthouse in Dallas

I cry at weddings.  It happens frequently.  Sometimes its the vows, the bride seeing her Dad for the first time, after the ceremony when the couple has a moment alone or the special dances at the reception.  This wedding I cried during it ALL.  It was so much fun and I was so glad I wore waterproof mascara.  Enjoy some of their fabulous moments at Old Red in Dallas!

Brandi and one of her bridesmaids proof reading and perfecting her vows.

TJ was anxiously excited.

TJ’s darling nieces and nephew played their part in the wedding.  I loved the ring bearer “pillow” of vintage books.

You can just tell he is nervous but I love it.

Can’t get much sweeter than this.  Brandi loves her Daddy.

No longer nervous, happy to see his beautiful bride.

OK, this rivals the aisle glance at her Dad on the sweetness level.  Just after Daddy gave her to TJ he stole a kiss.  Adore.

Their vows made everyone laugh and cry.  They were 100% from the heart, truth and filled with wisdom.

Married!!!!

TJ is one good gift giver, he bought his new wife season tickets to the Aggie home games.  Better yet he took off work for them, that made her one happy lady.

A sweet moment during the first dance

Not sure what is up with the fist pump during the first dance but it made Brandi laugh.

Brandi’s Dad is a real Rhine Stone Cowboy!!

Brandi had a pretty cake but Teej had the cool cake, Zombie themed with Till death do us part on the front.  Love.

A private last dance for the Beej and the Teej

Thanks to you both for trusting me and sharing in this special day.  It is one I will not forget.
