Caitlin – Bridal Portraits at The Crescent HotelDallas, Texas

Hardest part of my job hands down is sitting on images that I can’t share.  Now that wedding season is coming to a close be prepared for an influx of beautiful bridal portraits!  Caitlin’s bridal session was at The Crescent Hotel, a Rosewood Property, in Dallas.  Her sleek and stunning gown with lace detailing, illusion mid-drift and neckline are the perfect mixture of alluring and elegant.  The clean lines and greenery of the Crescen’ts outdoor spaces played well with the subtle organic nature of her gown and the indoor spaces added some drama.  Caitlin’s look was pulled together with some help of some amazing vendors:

Caitlin & Jordan – Wedding Reception at the Dallas Petroleum ClubDallas, Texas

Caitlin & Jordan’s Dallas Petroleum Club wedding reception was fun filled and beautiful!  Caitlin knows what she likes and I could feel her aesthetic throughout her ballroom decor.  Her florist, Bryan Long, brought her vision to life with dripping flowers from the chandeliers and large scale topiaries mixed with lower lush pieces.  Along with candlelight, seating vignettes and lighting the space was warm, inviting and elegant.  From the first dance to the last dance these two were so fun to capture smile, laugh and dance with their family and friends.  Above for their private last dance I pulled them off the dance floor and into the  middle of their ballroom so we could not only capture their extreme cuteness but the feeling of the space they created.

Caitlin & Jordan – I love you guys.  Thanks for being so gracious, kind and friendly to me and my team.  You made us feel important and that connection led to lots of happy tears and smiles behind my camera.  Thanks for being the last of 2016 and setting the tone so well going into next year.  I know God has great things for you both!

Caitlin & Jordan – Wedding Ceremony at the Sky LobbyDallas, Texas

The Sky Lobby at Chase Tower in Dallas, Texas was the most perfect backdrop for this modern couple’s wedding ceremony.  Before heading upstairs to say I do we captured some romantic images in front of the venue.  Caitlin & Jordan’s day had so many beautiful locations that I have had to separate their wedding blogs into 4 posts so I could give each spot their own spotlight!  The Sky lobby has stunning views of Dallas and even after the sunset the room was big and spacious and elegant with the glimmer of downtown lights in the distance.  During their ceremony I loved watching their smiles, their parents and of course all the perfect little moments that made everyone laugh.  Such a special time!

Shout out to the vendor team who made this ceremony look so stunning:
