Laura Leigh & Toby – Wedding Portraits at First United Methodist ChurchFort Worth, Texas

 

First United Methodist Church in downtown Fort Worth has some of the most beautiful architecture for wedding day portraits in Fort Worth.  Every time I photograph here I get excited for the lovely light pouring through the arches.  For Laura Leigh & Toby we did so many beautiful photographs in the courtyard with the two of them, their bridesmaids and groomsmen and even their family.  Thank you to the vendors who made this wedding so perfect:

Christy & Mark – Fort Worth Engagement Session at Trinity Park & The ModernFort Worth, Texas

Christy & Mark are fun, lighthearted but old souls.  This combination makes for a couple that loves fiercely and enjoys one another even in the most simple of things.  Mark is definitely a romantic based on his well thought out proposal.  Here is their engagement story in Christy’s words:

“Mark and I first saw each other in the state Capitol building in Austin, but didn’t really meet until several months later.  So, for our proposal, he asked me to come to the capitol for a business dinner he had. Once I got there, he met me in the large rotunda, and said we were actually going to get a private tour of the capitol building from one of his State Trooper friends.  He then took us up this tiny, windy staircase, and out on to the balcony overlooking downtown Austin at sunset.  That’s when he got down on one knee — and said that he knew when he first saw me 2 year prior, that he couldn’t imagine life without me.  Both my family, and his family, and my two closest friends were all hiding behind a pillar, they jumped out and said congratulations! I was so glad he had these people who mean so much to us, travel to be there for such a special moment!”

For their engagement session we had fun strolling through Trinity Park taking in the fall color and had some fun on the playground and stopped to feed some duckies.  My favorite part of their session was playing amidst The Modern art museum Christmas lights!  I love the effects of the lights in the photos and I think everyone needs to take a break from life to just enjoy the little things sometimes and there is no better time of year to do that than the holidays.  I hope your Holiday is filled with light and cheer as Christy & Mark’s relationship most definitely is!

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!

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.

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 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.

Katie and Allen – Engagement Portraits in Fort WorthTrinity Park & Downtown

Katie & Allen are adorable!  They have made their home in Arlington with their two pups that could not be a better reflection of themselves.  They met through mutual friends – best friends that married each other brought these two into each others lives!  Could not be a better way to meet and be sure you have life in common.  Katie & Allen love to adventure and can be found playing top golf or attending a game – especially the Rangers!  After 4 years these two will say I Do this summer at Piazza in The Village and it is going to be one FUN party with DJ Andy Austin there to bring the party!

See you both in a few months!!!

Leigh & Evan – Wedding Ceremony at First United Methodist DowntownFort Worth, Texas

This day was so beautiful and full of tons of emotional moments.  As we arrived at the club the ladies were playing games and the guys were enjoying the newly renovated bar area at the Fort Worth Club on the 11th floor.  As Leigh was helped into her gown by her Mom and sister and bridesmaids and house party eagerly awaited the reveal of her gown…when she came out everyone squealed and clapped!  Leigh was surely stunning in her gown with an illusion back, lace detailing and plunging illusion neckline.  This dress was made for her!!!  The drama didn’t stop with that reveal – it was the first of THREE!  Next up Dad was just smiling and happy to see his gorgeous daughter.  (to see her First Look with Evan, the groom, check out the blog post dedicated to it.)  Leigh and Evan had prepared the most thoughtful gift for her parents – a weekend getaway after all the stress and planning of a wedding!  Mom was shocked and I was totally crying!

 

At ceremony time as the doors opened and everyone stood for Leigh to enter the church, Evan was flooded with emotion.  First look’s are special but they don’t take away from that special moment.  When he saw his bride arm in arm with her Dad he cried!  It was precious!  Watching these two from the balcony I had the best view in the house as they whispered to each other and smiled during their vows.  Then – they were married!  Congrats Leigh and Evan and I can’t wait to share your killer party pics!
