Fun shot outside the downtown Dallas high rise where they had the reception at City Club.

After Ashley and Matt tied the knot at Maple Manor in Dallas we switched up locations completely from garden to downtown high rise at City Club Dallas where they had their reception.  I always love working at City Club as their staff, food and service are just phenomenal.  They really saved the day actually as just days before the wedding Ashley realized she had told City Club Sunday’s date for her reception instead of Saturday!  All was taken care of though, the reception  moved to Saturday and it was gorgeous.  The night was jam packed with fun from Matt & one of his groomsmen singing “Gold Digger” by Kanye to the crowd, Oklahoma University Pride, and non stop dancing.  I know that everyone had such a good time and we did too!  Here are some photos from their Dallas Wedding Reception!

HendrixWeddingBlog 0011 Dr. & Mrs. Max Hendrix

On February 13th I had the privilege of spending the day with Jennifer and Max as they said their vows and had a stunning wedding and reception.  The moment I met Jennifer at our studio I knew I wanted to be a part of this special day.  Jennifer’s sweetness and kindness just won me over completely so I can see how Max fell so hard for her.  We have been lucky to be a part of this journey with them from their engagement session, engagement party through the rehearsal dinner and on into their married life.

To describe their wedding in a few words:  Timeless, Elegant, Loving & Sweet.  The best part of those words is Loving and although these two are over the moon for each other the love that I saw from all of their family members was what stuck me.  They were so welcoming to all their guests as well as us.  These families are so amazing that by the end of the weekend I even felt like I was one of them!  Their relatives toasts made me laugh, cry and most of all know both families were excited to be gaining a new relative.  Jennifer and Max are definitely loved.

From decor to attire every aspect of this day had a timeless feel.  I love shooting a wedding and knowing in 5 years or 20 it will look current because Jennifer and her family took such care in planning  along with Tami Winn Events.  Jennifer reminded me of a starlet like Grace Kelly in her amazing gown and veil and her bridesmaids wore classic floor length black dresses.  This wedding was a studio event as we photographed them all day and both of my associates joined me to make sure nothing was missed.  They were married at TCU’s Robert Carr Chapel followed by a reception at The Colonial Country Club.  Floral by Tami Winn’s Le Fleur Couture and scrumptious cake by The Cake Guys.

Here is their slide show and some of my favorite moments from their day.  Tons of them are in Black and White because as I said timeless was definitely a word for this wedding and when editing my favorites I just kept seeing them that way.  Enjoy!
