Ann & John – Fort Worth Wedding at Marty Leonard Chapel with preperation at The Omni Hotel

Ann & John’s wedding was a perfect party which is exactly what this couple wanted, a fun day with dancing, family and lots of laughs.  It went by SO fast that when the band played the last song no one could believe it was time to leave.  I met up with the couple at The Omni Hotel in Fort Worth for preparations.  Halo Salon joined us for hair and makeup and they created Ann’s mermaid like waves.  After Ann slipped into her dress and John passed out the cowboy hats (his groomsmen gift) she awaited him on the balcony where they had their first look.  The above photo is one of my favorite from our short time on the windy terrace before we sought the calm and cool of indoors.  Read on for more about their day and check back tomorrow for their beyond amazing reception at The Modern with Emerald City.

Their day was made ever so beautiful with the help of the following vendors:

Tami Winn Events – Jaime, Coordinator

Bliss Bridal – Brides Gown

Halo Salon – Hair and Makeup

Turquoise Video – Wedding Cinema

Emerald City Band

Cafe Modern at The Modern Art Museum

Wynn Transportation

Legacy Cakes – cupcakes & cake pops

I LOVE, love, LOVED Ann’s bridesmaid attire (and her gown from Bliss Bridal).  She was so savvy and had all of her girls find a dress of their liking in the same color palette.  It looked so smart.

swoon…..shoes that sparkle steal my heart.

Ann’s Mom laughing and enjoying the girls during the preparations.

Showing of the bling!

Love Ann’s sisters face as she overhears Ann’s future plans for her.  They have to have babies together (and she needs to move back to Texas!)

John getting a little help from his little brother with his tie.  Their suits were so clean and modern.

Time for the dress!

Daddy of the bride was HILARIOUS!  This was his reaction to his daughter in her gown.  🙂

Stunning and awaiting her groom.

See any similarities in reaction?  Adore that John thought his wife to be so beautiful that his jaw dropped.

Pure sweetness.

Playing with props – Love that all these boys are going home to their non-cowboy states with hats that say TEXAS!

Feeling a little John Wayne.

Ann beamed as she approached the altar for her wedding ceremony.

A big embrace as Dad trusts his little girl to John.

Boys will be boys and these one played tricks.  The last groomsmen held the ring and as each man looked back to the next then passed it forward to the best man the crowd chuckled.

They had such a smashing first part of their wedding day but the romantic portraits to come at The Modern and the dance party provided by Emerald City was KILLER!!!!
