After Mallory & Ryan’s wedding at Robert Carr Chapel on the campus of TCU we took advantage of the beautiful light outside for portraits then headed on to their reception at Stonegate Mansion. Randall Stout provided our entertainment for the evening and as he introduced the bridal party they danced out to special introductions and Mallory and Ryan bumped booty’s and were silly as they took the floor for their first dance. They danced cheek to cheek and he twirled her and I loved the movement in her gown. As they cut the cake Mallory had a little too much fun and smashed just a bit of it on Ryan’s face. He was a good sport and gave her a icing covered kiss. During toasts Ken, Mallory’s Dad, shed a few tears. I love this man and he is truly a great Father. The couple had unique parent dances as Mallory and Ken broke into a little old school hip hop number and Ryan and his Mom did a sweet choreographed routine. The danced, mingled and enjoyed their guests before a stalled take off in a classic Rolls Royce. I love that their wedding like so many had bumps but it is all the things, planned and unplanned, that make up the memories of our weddings. Mallory and Ryan have the best hearts and I know their future holds many wonderful things.
Mallory pulled together a pefectly planned country chic reception and wedding day with the help of a fabulous team of vendors and her dear Dad. Ken spent lots of time chopping wood at their ranch and doing creative things like wood burning their table numbers, initials and date onto tree stumps. Most amazingly he made a ring box for the couple. Tami Winn of Le Fleur Couture brought the flower vision together. We were joined by Turquoise Video Productions for wedding cinema and food by The Reata. To see more of their gorgeous day see the slide show below!
