Kyndall & Cole are getting married next summer at TCU! Yep, ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel and the reception overlooking the stadium at the TCU Champion’s club! Texas Christian University is a huge part of this couples story, it is where it began so it makes so much sense that they will be saying I do there too! They met as freshman and were friends thorough out college. Cole knows he was firmly place in the friend zone and he worked hard to get out of it and eventually Kyndall came around and fell hard for this sweet and loving man. He is a little soft spoken but I think Kyndall’s bubbly and outgoing personality make them a perfect pairing. So complimentary! This past summer both of their families vacationed together in Hawaii where Cole proposed 0 so special! I had so much fun hanging out with them and loved Kyndall’s deep purple lace dress and her adorable “game day” outfit for the football stadium. So much fun! Can’t wait for the wedding! Rah Rah TCU!
After the ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel Yasmin & Scott headed to their second wedding! At Fort Worth Club guests enjoyed cocktail hour before moving into one of the ballroom’s for the Persian Ceremony. Yasmin & Scott were both escorted down the aisle by their parents before they sat for the remainder of the service by an ornate and beautifully decorated table. As the ceremony progressed it was beautiful to see the family and guest participation and the couple were just beaming at one another. The music, the energy – it was so unique and fabulous for myself and many of the guests to get to learn about another cultures customs and traditions. This first photo above is a traditional request in Persian – Iranian culture from the wedding ceremony and I loved it!
Once they were married again it was finally time celebrate! On to the dance floor for a first dance before dinner and a night full of excitement! This couple and all their friends enjoyed music from Yasi’s culture as well as contemporary and American tunes. These two horned frogs (TCU alumni) did have hands down the absolute cutest saying I have ever seen on their cocktail napkins and Koozee’s – Together till we croak with little horned frogs. LOVE IT!
This beautiful day was pulled together by the following vendors:
Neiman Marcus – Brides Gown

We were so excited to photograph Kelly & Gerry’s wedding reception at the Amon G. Carter Football Stadium at TCU. The Champions Club in the stadium is a unique place to hold a wedding reception, overlooking the field, it is the most perfect spot for a super frog super fan wedding! Tami Winn transformed the space into an elegant atmosphere for this purple wedding. From the moment the bride and groom descended the stair case the party was on! Gerry’s playful spirit was showcased on the dance floor as he got silly as he danced with his bride but he also showed off his soft side as he held his new wife tight. Kelly is really a stunning woman and I loved watching her sweet smiles in her husbands arms. After some formal dances, welcomes and some delicious dinner by Bonnell’s it was time to PARTY! This couple rarely left the dance floor and was up on the stage singing and dancing almost as much as the band! It was truly a night to remember.
Adding an element that is totally unique to this venue we had the opportunity to head out into the stands to get some photos with the stadium in the background. Completely priceless! As the night came to a close after celebrating with Super Frog, some yummy cake and a whole lot of dancing this couple was sent off with sparklers to their honeymoon. Congrats Kelly & Gerry! I loved getting to know you and your families, I know you have great things ahead of you!

Amy & Tom visited me a few weeks ago for anniversary portraits! 5 years ago I photographed their super sweet nuptials at Robert Carr Chapel and Ashton Depot. Since then these two have just grown in their love and it was so cool to get to catch up with them! I love when couples do something special for themselves like photos for such a big milestone. They chose TCU since it has so much importance to their present and past. They love to attend games during football season so we had to grab some pics in the stands of the stadium. Thanks you two for continuing to trust me in capturing your most important moments! Congrats on 5 years and the next 50 to come!
Sarah and Samuel are living their honeymoon life right now! These two were married last weekend and right about now they should be packing up the last of their belongings to MOVE to the Bahamas! Most couples go for a week to celebrate their nuptials but these two are starting their married lives with an adventure of living in a place most people dream to visit. It won’t be all play as they will be attending school while there but it is definitely a once in a life time way to start their days together as husband and wife. These two met at TCU and have been inseparable for over 7 years and now they are FINALLY husband and wife. It was truly a magical day and we are so happy we could be a part of it. We started, and ended, the day at The Colonial Country Club. Surrounded by laughter and friends Sarah slipped into her gown before sharing a first sight with Samuel out on the golf course. A hop, skip and jump down the road to Robert Carr Chapel at Texas Christian University Campus for their ceremony before heading back to party. Their night was filled with fun and entertainment and a surprise fireworks display for their guests as well as Super Frog! It is a wedding no one will soon be forgetting! We wish you two the best and I pray that your years to come outshine the awesome wedding day you had!
Their day was magnificent thanks to the following vendor team:
Davids Bridal – Wedding Gown and Bridesmaids Attire
Leah’s Sweet Treats – Brides Cake

Sarah and Samuel are getting married next July at Robert Carr Chapel at TCU with their reception at The Colonial Country Club. These two met at college in Tyler then moved to TCU together to pursue their degree’s to prepare to be doctor’s. I love that they are so perfectly matched and I can completely see them working together in a hospital or office taking care of patients together all of there days. I admire couples that have the same passions in their professions and can work so well together. Can’t wait for their wedding next year!
Lyndsay and Brandon were married a few weeks ago at Robert Carr Chapel on Texas Christian University’s campus with a reception to follow at the Historic T&P Station. Today I am thrilled to share my favorites from their preparations and ceremony. Above I stole these two away right after the ceremony and gave them a few moments alone and I just love this image. The shadows, them sharing a few words, absolute LOVE. These two were SO expressionistic so I had way too many special photos to choose from but I had to narrow it down (so tough!) Read on for more about their day and check back tomorrow for part 2.
Big shout out to Brittney Ann who stepped in to help us a bit for this wedding and took a few of the lovely details above. Your the best!
Only dislike about Robert Carr is their getting ready “classrooms” BUT I do love it in this instance because of the sweet heart drawn on the chalkboard behind my bride as she prepares to get married.
Becoming a bride.
Mom helping with the beautiful pearl necklace Lyndsay received from her groom.
Nervous hands with a killer engagement ring and a family heirloom ring on her right hand. I just fell in love with this at her bridal session. It is so special when brides can incorporate an heirloom into their ensemble.

After the minister came into sign the marriage license pre-ceremony the guys clapped and laughed.
Best thing about having a third shooter – a photographer stationed with the bride and her Dad to get photos like this!
Her Daddy definitely loves her, look at how he looks at her as she looks on to Brandon.
And as he looks at her, he cries. SWOON..
Lyndsay couldn’t keep herself from crying either.
A sweet impromptu embrace after walking out of the chapel. Tomorrow Romantic portraits, bridal party and reception photos!

We are always so excited to read the stories of our couples in print along with the photos from their wedding. If you are interested in having your wedding in the next issue see how on the Brides of North Texas Website.
I adored this couple from the moment we met and Kimberly said that after meeting me no one else compared and she had to make it happen. I am so glad she did and a big thanks to her Grandma for encouraging her to work with me because I just love this couple! Kimberly and Mark are currently doing the long distance thing as she is in medical school in Houston and he is working up here but hopefully she will be up here for residency very soon. I have a ton of couples that met through their time in school and this couple is no different, meeting at the TCU library. When they told me that I knew it was the perfect place for some photos as well as around campus. Kimberly brought along their two doggies as well dressed as a bride and groom! Kim actually made the veil herself and the dogs were more obedient than my dog would ever be (thanks to our dog wrangling team! Amanda on my staff and Kim’s Mom, Grandma and little bro). We finished up down town by the awesome flat iron building and a few spots by sun dance square that I love.
Can’t wait to see you guys again!
Often times couples ask me what makes for a great wedding and reception. My answer varries as couples are looking for their parties to feel specific ways but Natalie knew exactly what she wanted and she knew how to get it. A killer line up of vendors plus 400 guests made for an unforgettable night. Entertainment has such an impact on the feeling of your reception and Professor D is one of my favorite bands that always brings the excitement from a wide range of songs to fun performances by the horn players. Tami Winn provided the centerpieces and the bride’s bouquet. Due to the large number of guests Natalie and Ryan reserved almost every square inch of City Club and Tami decked out the ballroom in magnificent pinks and the Oak Room in TCU purples. Her towering pink and white bride’s cake and sweet horned frog clad grooms cake were by Creme de la Creme.
I am a bit obsessed with gowns and was SO happy to be photographing a Vera. 🙂
Those are some great look lashes!
Love how Natalie’s Mom looked at her and Natalie’s reaction to see Mom in her gown.
Everyone admiring Natalie in her gown.
Even though she saw Ryan before she didn’t put her veil on until right before the ceremony so he had not seen the complete look yet.
I love the moments before the door opens like this one. That is one proud Dad.
That was one great kiss, I totally wasn’t expecting such a dramatic moment but I loved it.
Their first dance was magical and I loved how her dress moved.
At the end of the Father Daughter Dance the band kicked it up a notch.
There were some eager ladies waiting for the bouquet toss.
A stolen kiss on the dance floor.
And off on their Honeymoon!
