Ragan & Alex – Fort Worth Zoo Wedding Reception at The ReserveFort Worth, Texas

This reception may be why I was so excited to photograph Ragan & Alex’s wedding.  I knew I liked them the moment Ragan started talking about why they selected the Fort Worth Zoo for their reception location.  They took a gamble and booked a yet to be built pavilion in the new African Savanah exhibit that features giraffes, hippos and more!  The most special part?  In addition to a breathtaking view, unique animal experiences and delicious food you get to feed the giraffes!  The smiles on Ragan & Alex’s faces as they fed those giraffes was worth the wait!

 

After feeding giraffes these two hit the dance floor and kicked off a night of dancing, photo booth fun and beautiful details.  Ragan pulled together some very special details to complement her zoo wedding from a champagne bar with flamingo table numbers to the cutest little signs and animal crackers at the send off.  On the dance floor Ragan and Alex had a blast together, jumped on stage and enjoyed a private last dance before ridding off together amidst a flurry of bubbles.

 

This night was amazing, Thank you to every vendor who took such care to serve Ragan & Alex:

Ragan & Alex – Wedding Ceremony at Saint Stephen Presbyterian ChurchFort Worth, Texas

Ragan & Alex are married!  Their ceremony at St Stephen’s was beautiful and I had the best seat in the house!  From my little hidden spot I got to see all the smiles, shared glances and their faces as they said their vows.  I always think I am the luckiest guest!  After saying I do we enjoyed the courtyard and architecture of the church before boarding Molly the Trolly to head to the Fort Worth Zoo for the reception!

 

Thank you to my vendor friends who took such great care of this couple on their day:

Ragan & Alex – Wedding Preparations and Wedding Party PortraitsFort Worth, Texas

Ragan and Alex had an emotion filled day that was truly a pleasure to be a part of.  I have been counting down the days to this wedding since meeting them last year and it was truly a super special day.

 

Ragan and her ladies prepped at an Air B&B in Fort Worth before heading to St Stephen Presbyterian for the wedding ceremony.  After dressing her Daddy came to see her in her lovely pale pink Haley Page gown and it was just about the sweetest moment ever.  Big smiles, a few tears and the photo above as she wiped a tear of Daddy’s face.  The best!  Once the guys joined us at the church Ragan & Alex shared a private moment around a door to exchange gifts and a little chat without spoiling the surprise of the ceremony.

 

Thank you to all the vendors who made this day perfect and fun filled!

Caitlin & Jordan – Wedding Reception at the Dallas Petroleum ClubDallas, Texas

Caitlin & Jordan’s Dallas Petroleum Club wedding reception was fun filled and beautiful!  Caitlin knows what she likes and I could feel her aesthetic throughout her ballroom decor.  Her florist, Bryan Long, brought her vision to life with dripping flowers from the chandeliers and large scale topiaries mixed with lower lush pieces.  Along with candlelight, seating vignettes and lighting the space was warm, inviting and elegant.  From the first dance to the last dance these two were so fun to capture smile, laugh and dance with their family and friends.  Above for their private last dance I pulled them off the dance floor and into the  middle of their ballroom so we could not only capture their extreme cuteness but the feeling of the space they created.

Caitlin & Jordan – I love you guys.  Thanks for being so gracious, kind and friendly to me and my team.  You made us feel important and that connection led to lots of happy tears and smiles behind my camera.  Thanks for being the last of 2016 and setting the tone so well going into next year.  I know God has great things for you both!

Caitlin & Jordan – Wedding Ceremony at the Sky LobbyDallas, Texas

The Sky Lobby at Chase Tower in Dallas, Texas was the most perfect backdrop for this modern couple’s wedding ceremony.  Before heading upstairs to say I do we captured some romantic images in front of the venue.  Caitlin & Jordan’s day had so many beautiful locations that I have had to separate their wedding blogs into 4 posts so I could give each spot their own spotlight!  The Sky lobby has stunning views of Dallas and even after the sunset the room was big and spacious and elegant with the glimmer of downtown lights in the distance.  During their ceremony I loved watching their smiles, their parents and of course all the perfect little moments that made everyone laugh.  Such a special time!
