Abbey & Andrew – Wedding Ceremony at University BaptistFort Worth, Texas

I just LOVE Abbey and Andrew – from a chance meeting in Texas to moving across country and finding love these two were drawn to one another.  Their lives were orchestrated so that they just had to be together and when you are with them you know it is GOOD.

We met up at the Renaissance Worthington to capture these two get ready for their big day along side there friends and family.  It was rainy outside but inside everyone was having fun, laughing and making toasts to all the goodness that was this wedding day.  Abbey had her Mom help her into her gown upstairs while her bridesmaids dressed and anxiously awaited the BIG reveal.  But, before she went downstairs Daddy came up to see his daughter all dressed in white.  He brought her a bracelet and they hugged it out and made this photographer totally get teary!  (I love Daddy Daughter moments!!!)  Then as she walked downstairs those bridesmaids squealed and smiled to see their friend looking SO beautiful!  The guys toasted some whiskey and Andrew chatted with his Grandpa as he prepped to see his bride.

At the church it was go time and you could see how anxious Andrew was for those doors to open, when it did he was all smiles and tight lipped holding back those tears – Abbey was breathtaking!  Through out the ceremony we had laughter, smiles and sweet glances.  It was perfection.  Their minister, a family member, was awesome and made everything about the ceremony so personal and deep.

After these two were officially wed, God gave us a beautiful gift and stopped the  misty rain just long enough for us to steal 3 minutes outside before family portraits began.  This California couple hoped for sunshine days but at least we got a moment without the rainy skies.

Thank you to all the vendors who made this day so perfect:

Kristy & Jared – Texas Discovery Garden Wedding Ceremony

Kristy and Jared were married on Oct 26th on a day with an extreme forecast.  Leading up to their day I think the bride, me and everyone involved may have been compulsively checking the weather.  We saw the chance of rain change back and forth and as we all prayed super hard we were blessed with no rain!  Well, that is until later that night, but we made the best of that!  The sky’s rainy forecast though made for fabulous ceremony pictures like the one above as the clouds picked up all the sunset colors.  Before the ceremony I met up with Kristy at The Magnolia Hotel before heading over to the Texas Discovery Gardens.  Her girls were all so sweet and I loved the exchanges between her and Mom and Dad, the emotion just filled the room.  It was pretty darn cool.  Jared and his guys were goofy guys but when Kristy took that aisle his face was filled with tears.  She was truly breathtaking and so was his little girl who walked the aisle before her announcing to Dad the Kristy was on the way.  Stay tuned tomorrow for more photos from their reception.
