Kyndall & Cole – Wedding Reception at TCU Champions ClubFort Worth, Texas

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!

Kyndall & Cole – Wedding Portraits at Texas Christian UniversityFort Worth, Texas

They say rain is good luck on a wedding day and if that is true Kyndall and Cole will walk through their marriage with luck at their side!  We all expect July weddings to be hot but on this day a surprise summer storm popped up just as these two were about to say I do!  The rain was outside so we played inside!  The new renovations at Robert Carr Chapel look awesome and you can see how crisp and beautiful this classic chapel is in these photos.  The rain just wouldn’t let up but we didn’t let that stop us from getting some photos in the Horned Frog Football Stadium!  At the Amon Carter Stadium it was drizzly and humid but we embraced the day and the humidity for some super cute photos for these TCU alumni.

 

Thank you to the vendors who made Kyndall & Cole’s day so beautiful!

Kyndall & Cole – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelTCU in Fort Worth, Texas

This TCU wedding was perfect in every way!  This couple met at TCU and it is now the place they said I do!  When they met Cole immediately knew that Kyndall was special and he pursued her as a friend and eventually a girlfriend.  I think his hard work paid off as Kyndall could not be more in love with Cole.  The excitement leading up to the ceremony was at a 10!  Both, ready to see each other and SO ready to be married!  We met up with these guys at the Fort Worth Omni Hotel for the preparations for the wedding at Texas Christian University.  As Kyndall dressed her Mom looked on with pride and love for her little girl.  When Daddy came into the room to see his daughter, a bride, it was perfect – the hugs, the laughter and a little bit of tears.   So sweet as they exchanged gifts and words before heading off to walk his daughter down the aisle.  Cole and his guys had a good time pre-ceremony with toasts of Whiskey, laughter and fun to ease his nerves and get him ready for the biggest “game day” of his life.  I was truly blessed to watch these two vow to one another love, devotion and respect and I know that God will carry them and their marriage through the life ahead.  Congrats you two!

 

Kyndall & Cole’s wedding vendor team was perfection!  Huge thanks to:

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

This wedding reception is one I will likely never forget.  At the end of the night I told Tyler that he is one of the coolest and most fun groom’s I have ever worked with.  Tyler and Bethany both are a joy to be around and they made the best of their 4 hour reception.  I am pretty sure they danced, hugged, talked and laughed with at least every guest they had.  From the moment they walked in the tone was set for a killer night – as the doors opened and the band announced the Mr & Mrs and played “All I do is Win”  these two entered the reception arms in the air and tore up the dance floor before their first dance had even begun.  Their entrance was epic and it didn’t stop there.  Reception’s are about more than the couple – they are about all the invited guest and loved ones.  During this party I loved watching the parents interact with one another and their children.  We caught Tyler hugging Bethany’s parents, chatting up his Dad and brother and being a little crazy on the stage with the band.  Bethany sang with the band from the dance floor, had fun dancing beside her husband and stole lots of kisses from him all night.

To top all of that – Bethany and Tyler are my 4th couple in a group of friends I have been so lucky to photograph.  Having 3 of my past couples dancing along side me as I captured this night was priceless.  Building relationships with my couples and seeing them time and again at other friends weddings is such a huge reward.  I’m looking forward to sharing the dance floor with all 8 of them next year at another one!

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelTCU Fort Worth, Texas

Hey!  Look at this beautifully remodeled and fresh new look at Robert Carr Chapel!  The iconic church on the campus of Texas Christian University just finished a long renovation earlier this month and I was SO excited to see it finished.  I love the updated color palette, new floors, expanded altar and all the amazing amenities they have added.  Can’t wait for all  my upcoming weddings here!

Okay, enough about the new look at Robert Carr – back to Bethany & Tyler!  Before walking down the aisle Bethany’s friends laid hands on her and prayed over her, the wedding and her life ahead as a Mrs.  It was so sweet!  During the ceremony these two were all smiles and I can’t blame them – I was too!  Their pastor was hilarious – he gave a challenging word of inspiration.  Pushing them to seek after a marriage that was full, overflowing and rich in all things – like a big gulp!  Yes, a big gulp, and he had the cup to drive the point home as a prop!  After saying I do, embracing the idea of a marriage that is MORE they kissed and it was done!  They were married!

Robert Carr isn’t just gorgeous inside, it is outside as well and we took some beautiful photos of these two on the steps and around the chapel.

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding First Look and Wedding Party PortraitsTrinity Park, Fort Worth

Look at how cute and excited these two were to finally see each other!  Bethany knew she wanted a location that was green and lush for her first sight with Tyler.  We selected Trinity Park for just that reason and it was gorgeous!  Right before he turned I asked him what he thought her dress might look like and he may have been a little off on his expectations but he was not disappointed when he turned to see Bethany.  After some photos of the two of them alone they were joined by their bridesmaids and groomsmen for wedding party photos.

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding Preperations at Renaissance Worthington HotelFort Worth, Texas

Bethany & Tyler are married and this day was so full of emotion, happy moments and lots of partying that I had to split all the awesomeness up into 4 blogs!  Today we are taking a look at Bethany and Tyler preparing for their wedding at the Renaissance Worthington Hotel in downtown Fort Worth.

 

Bethany dressed in her suite surrounded by her friends and Mom.  Her gorgeous  lace gown by Pronovias with a plunging neckline was elegant and sensual and she looked stunning!  Her updo emphasized the dress’ lines and her back.  Bethany wore earrings from the Kendra Scott bridal collection and an heirloom bracelet – we all got a little emotional as Mom placed it on her wrist.  My favorite thing was her reveal with Dad – he entered the room with eyes closed and when told to open them the photo above was the result.  I loved how Mom was looking at her hubby to see the reaction he would have to their gorgeous daughter.  It was super sweet and hugs were quick to follow!

Tyler and his boys had FUN while the got ready (that is kind of his thing!)  He is really a sweet and loving guy who embraces laughter, silliness and allot of dancing.  So his preparation time was full of silly selfies, shots and a side of dancing.

Jennifer & Stephen – Wedding Reception at La Cantera ResortSan Antonio, Texas

Jennifer & Stephen had such a fun party with their friends!  The reception was the end of a great week pool side, partying and loving life with their most loved.  Having a wedding that is destination – no matter how far – always makes for a special event.  At the reception everyone danced the night away – had too much fun in the mirror me photo booth and ate yummy cake, ice cream and treats!  It was perfect!  Not sure if these guys were serious about dancing?  Check out Jennifer’s kicks!  She had some awesome gold sparkly kate spade shoes to rock at the reception while all the other ladies threw on some fun gold polka dot chuck taylors.

 

This weekend was truly phenomenal.  We so enjoyed being there with you both and I can’t wait to see all that the future holds for you two!  Shout out to the amazing vendor team Jennifer lined up for their big day!

Jennifer & Stephen – Wedding Ceremony at La Cantera ResortSan Antonio, Texas

For this amazing Texas Destination wedding we traveled to La Cantera Resort outside of San Antonio.  This couple found a happy medium between being away and doing something accessible to their family and friends.  They spent several days pool side with their favorite people and had a beautiful wedding celebration on property at the resort.  Jennifer & Stephen have known each other since high school but have just been dating the last few years as life brought them back together.

 

Prior to the ceremony Jennifer and Stephen wanted to stay traditional but still share a special moment together.  Around the corner – without seeing one another – they exchanged gifts, had a few sweet moments and some laughter together.  I loved this surprised look as Jennifer saw her gift – she really wanted two bands to compliment her engagement ring but Stephen said that would have to wait – but he was tricky!  She was so excited!

 

During the ceremony overlooking the Texas Hill Country these two said I do!

Annie & Josh – Wedding Reception at MOPACFort Worth, Texas

Annie & Josh’s wedding reception at MOPAC was filled with lush greenery and moody tones.  Long sage runners and colored taper candles brought vibrancy and layers to the table decor.  MOPAC is a beautiful space that is accentuated perfectly with uplighting and pin spotting to make the decor really stand out in the space.  Not only was the reception beautiful – it was FUN!  Annie and Josh love to be silly together and you can see it in every photo as they danced and laughed together.  It makes my heart happy to see a marriage begin with such a light hearted spirit – you need laughter in a marriage!

 

Thanks Annie & Josh for letting me be a part of your story, I can not wait to see all that the future holds!  You are both part of my Lightly Photography family and I adore you.  😉

 

Giant thank you to every vendor that made this day so beautiful for Annie & Josh – you all excelled beyond expectations!
