This wedding reception at The Champion Club overlooking Amon Carter Stadium at TCU was purple and full of sparkle! Kyndall and Cole let the purple stand out in linen’s, up-lighting and floral touches. Oh but the sparkle – they had the coolest dance floor I have ever seen – a silver glitter dance floor! I loved the way the light reflected off it through out the night! And once glitter dance floor isn’t enough so their cake had its own glitter floor drop too! With yummy food by Bonnell’s and sweet treat’s from J Rae’s this wedding had every fine Fort Worth detail!
We had a blast on the dance floor with Kyndall & Cole and special guest super frog! TCU will always be a part of their love story and their reception was truly a love filled evening. Congrats to you both! Thank you for inviting us to share this day with you, to capture all the laughter and joy. It was perfect in every way!
Thank you to every vendor that made this day so special!
Can’t think of a better end to a day then this. A final goodbye amidst sparklers and fireworks!
The reception space at Bree’s family ranch was housed in a tent filled with rustic meets chic decor. The beautiful barn tables were dressed up in whites, silver and touches of gray, greens and lavenders. The family style atmosphere set the tone for a fun filled night. As limelight took the stage and Bree & Craig were announced the party was on! This couple never strayed far from the dance floor or each other. After dinner it was time for cake and there was a little special detail on the back of the cake just for Craig – his Jersey number on a tiny little football! Super cute and very thoughtful of Bree. As the night progressed it was time for wedding dress #2! I am not always a fan of second dresses but this one – let me say was pretty awesome. The slinky beaded gown was easy to dance in and had perfect little princess cap sleeves. As the night came to close the couple took the stage for their last dance along side the band before being led off to their honeymoon by the horn section.
It was a fabulous night and we had the best time celebrating with them. Bree made us feel like family and I am just thrilled for these two and the life they have ahead of them. Congratulations you two!

Want more? Of course you do! Check out their photo highlight reel to see more moments from Bree & Craig’s Dallas private residence wedding:
Ashlyn and Ben were so much fun to photograph and they had a truly spectacular day. We joined up with them pre-ceremony at The Fort Worth Club for getting ready before heading to First United Methodist in downtown. I loved SO many parts of their day, Ashlyn’s laughter as she was dressed in her gown, Ben’s expression as he opened his gift, the hammer that wasn’t quite cut out to nail and all the fun dance moves and silliness at the reception. Read on for more details about their day and a HUGE thank you to the team that made it so flawless.
And my favorite part, here is their wedding highlights reel:
What girl doesn’t love a beautiful nude shoe….especially with that red sole.
Ashlyn was laughing as they dressed her and that made me happy inside, I love brides filled with so much joy!
Ben looking so handsome.
These sweet girls were silly all day and beyond cute.
Ben’s reaction to his special groom’s present was priceless.
Ashlyn reading Ben’s LOOOONG note.
A little giggle during the ceremony.
With some Louisiana flair they couple was led out in style!
The Fort Worth Club looked amazing and the decor Ashlyn & Ben choose went perfectly with the ballroom.
My favorite part of their decor was this little sofa. It belongs to the Fort Worth Club and the moved it to use it as their seats of honor at their massive head table. The floral on it just made it perfect and what a beautiful statement!
As guests entered the ballroom the were greeted with champagne and a song by the Limelight Band, this girl can sing!
Toasts from friends made everyone laugh.
They opted for a sweet bar with 2 small cakes and I adored these monogrammed cookies, perfect prop for the rings!
Ashlyn was read to throw the bouquet and those girls were READY to catch it. I love when people get in to the traditions.
Perfectly sweet moment caught between Ashlyn and her Grandpa.
Ben has some righteous dance moves.
No wedding would be complete with out a sing along to Don’t Stop Believe’n and Ben was quick to jump on the stage and take that microphone.
A little more New Orleans flair as they departed their reception.
After Ashley and Chance’s beautiful wedding outside at the Aristide Event Center we headed inside for a fabulous dinner catered by Oliver’s Fine Foods. Then we headed outside underneath the stars and the “super moon” for an all night dance party with Limelight Band. They are truly amazing so if you are looking for a band for your party or wedding I highly recommend them.
Ashley & Chance were married on May 5th at the Aristide Event Center in Mansfield, Texas. It was a perfect day and we were so lucky to get to share it with them. Ashley and her ladies had fun, sipped on mimosas and laughed allot as they prepared for the wedding. Chance’s daughter joined them in the getting ready room as her Daddy prepped on the other side of the building. The light was perfect during their outside ceremony and it was completely sweet even if we were all a tad sweaty. 🙂 Check back next week for their romantics & reception which was one high energy dance party thanks to the band Limelight.
All of the beautiful details at their wedding were pulled together by my friend Lucia Bitnar with Foster Blue. She is a fabulous wedding coordinator and designer. Other vendors that helped make it picture perfect are:
One of my favorite ring shots ever, I loved that Lucia played on Chance’s name with these Monopoly themed cards that were on cocktail tables.
I loved all the details from the mis-matched vintage vessels that held the flowers, touches of lace, the cake table and the subtle nod to Cinco de Mayo with the sodas and candy from Mexico. It was perfect.
Ashley preparing as her soon to be daughter looks on.
No little girl like having their hair done (I know I didn’t) so I just adore this photo. It captures that spirit that kids have.
Little girls and wedding dress are what dreams are made of.
Ashley opening her gift from Chance.
Becoming a bride, one of my favorite parts!
Chance helping is Father in Law with his tux.
One good looking groom.
A kiss before he walks his daughter down the aisle.
After the minister signaled for the crowd to stand Chance and his daughter look to see Ashley.
I love this image as it is truly Ashley’s first moments seeing her groom. With windy paths so often the center aisle isn’t where the true action is. This shot through the crowd proves it.
High fives are amazing!
Including Chance’s daughter in their ceremony was important. Before they said their vows to one another Chance said a few words to his little girl and Ashley presented her with a bracelet. So sweet.
