Laura & Dave – Wedding Reception at the George W. Bush Presidential CenterDallas, Texas

After the wedding Laura sent me a little info about a few of her favorite parts of her day:

“Not exactly unique, but obviously the one thing I was most excited for was just getting to marry Dave”

I mean isn’t that the cutest?  I loved that when I asked her what she was looking forward to about the wedding this was first on her mind, not things but Dave!  It says so much about her heart for him and the amazing marriage they are going to have.  She also liked some of the fun stuff!  Here is what she had to say about that:

“I absolutely loved being able to have both the A&M and UT aspects come together for our wedding. Being able to have the half maroon and half burn orange koozies, as well as playing the Aggie War Hymn and the Eyes of Texas to represent both my and Dave’s alma maters was great (and it was a plus that we didn’t have any “school fights” break out or anything like that!).

Another thing I also loved about out wedding was that we were able to have a photobooth. Dave and I have always loved taking photobooth pictures together; it doesn’t matter where we are, anytime we find a photobooth, we have to take a picture together! We were able to take copies of some of the pictures we have taken together over the years in photobooths and blow them up for a poster to put next to our photobooth!

Another thing we both feel so blessed to have had on our wedding day was that we were able to have so many of our family members and friends some celebrate us from so many difference parts of the country (and world). We had family come in from East Texas, Dallas, Pennsylvania, Boston, but also had friends who came in from Florida, NYC, California, and even Australia! We felt so much love being able to celebrate with everyone!”

 

It was an awesome celebration!  We had a fabulous time and I want to thank every vendor that worked so hard to make this night such a success:

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.

Allison & Allen – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, Texas

Allison & Allen had a fabulous party to celebrate their marriage at The Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth.  This NYC couple was surrounded by friends and family as they danced and partied the night away.  Having a fab time was super important to them – they actually flew in a DJ from Israel that they had seen at a friends wedding. His European style of mixing kept the dance floor packed all night long!  The Modern was beautiful in elegant tulips in purples and whites with clean lined acrylic accents on the head table.  Gro Designs always surprises me with their decor and ideas from flowers to linens.

My favorite moment of the reception is above.  They spent the night dancing with friends but this quiet moment on the dance floor was perfection.  Amidst the crowd they just melt into each other – So much love and respect for one another.

Huge shout out to all the vendors who made this Fort Worth wedding reception a hit!

Allison & Allen – Wedding Ceremony & PreparationsMarty Leonard Chapel, Fort Worth

Allison & Allen were married at the Marty Leonard Community Chapel in Fort Worth.  I loved their modern traditional wedding!  Although they had bridesmaids and groomsmen they elected to stand unattended at the altar which really brought the focus onto the two of them and the commitment they were making.  Their close friend – and bridesmaid – married them, making the ceremony very unique and tailored to the two of them.  My favorite part of the ceremony was during the special  music – as Allison’s parents sang a duet her eyes welled up with tears and Allen gently wiped away her tears.  It was so beautiful and a perfect representation of his caring heart for his bride.

Thanks to the amazing vendors who made their ceremony so perfect!

Leigh – Bridal Portrait at The Dallas ArboretumDallas, Texas

Leigh is a gorgeous bride!  Her lace gown with a plunging back and neckline was amazing!  I am loving these new illusion styles that expose yet cover and make dresses so sensual yet sophisticated.  Leigh is a sweet girl and I loved hanging out with her and her Mom at the bridal session at The Dallas Arboretum.  Her veil added some drama and when paired with the light wind we had some perfect moments.  Her bouquet was loose and lush in whites and greens and the simplicity of the color palette complemented her overall look.

Megan & Dylan – Getting Ready & Wedding CeremonyOmni Hotel & Robert Carr Chapel at TCU

Lightly Photography 2016

This day was full of all the feels – I mean look at this image that started our day!  As we arrived Megan was getting ready to read her note from Dylan and open her gift.  As she sat down and started to read the tears poured and it was precious in every way.  You all know how I feel about the feels – I am one happy photographer.  🙂

As the ladies dressed and the guys toasted and finished their final details we captured the fun, the emotions and the nerves leading up to the first look (see the post dedicated to that!  yes, it was so good it needed it’s own.)  Megan’s attire pretty much is one of my favorite looks ever – from her louboutin’s to her sparkly backless dress with it’s fun fluffy skirt.  Megan lovingly refers to her dress as Fluffy – every gown needs a special name!  Ready to go the couple and their bridesmaids and groomsmen set off on a bus to the Robert Carr Chapel at TCU Campus to get married!

Thank you to the vendors that made this day so beautiful:
