Hayley & David – Wedding Reception at The White SparrowDallas, Texas

Hayley & David may have had a rainy wedding day but that didn’t stop the party or the gorgeous details and fun to be had!  The White Sparrow barn looked stunning with floral draping the staircase and lush greenery.  These two knew from the beginning that they wanted to emphasize the party – with every person on the dance floor, breaking it down, until last call.  They most certainly accomplished that!  The dance floor was so crowded the wedding planning team had to pull back the head table to make more room for all the fun!  Hayley brought an extra side of excitement to her Father daughter dance – they brought all the moves!  Check out the fun images below!

We believe in making the best in what we are given and this couple and their families embraced the day right along with us.  We did night portraits outside once the rain stopped, family photos on the floral cover stairs and went with the flow for a perfect wedding day.

Thanks Hayley and David for including us!  We had a blast thanks to the two of you and your community of loving people.  Super shout out of praise to all the vendors for their hard work!

Hayley & David – Wedding Ceremony at Prestonwood Baptist Church ChapelPlano, Texas

Planning for a wedding is fun and exciting but sometimes nature changes our plans.  Hayley and David were set to wed on a day that became rather rainy but because they had an expert planner at their side and awesome attitudes they moved their outside wedding indoors to the chapel at their home church – Prestonwood – and make a rainy day beautiful!  We met up with these two at The Statler in downtown Dallas to get ready for the wedding before their vows.

I asked these two what they were looking forward to most a few months ago about their wedding and their answer was perfect!  Why?  Because they knew this day was about more than plans – it was about them, their marriage and those they love.  This attitude is what made this day exceptional!  Here is what Hayley had to say:

“Celebrating more than just the bride and groom. Celebrating the support system we have around us. Really loving on those who have built the strong community around us and celebrating the great love David and I have found.” – Hayley

We truly saw the support system and strong community in Hayley & David’s lives – congrats guys on an amazing marriage!  Shout out to all the vendors for their flexibility and hard work to make this day gorgeous:

Kaycee & Joseph – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, Texas

My time with Kaycee and Joseph has been truly special.  I love that they made their wedding days all about them!  The separated their wedding ceremony and reception onto different dates and the outcome was perfect!  You can see their wedding day at Bella Donna Chapel here but this post is all about the celebration of their marriage!  Kaycee & Joseph invited all their favorite people to The Modern Art Museum for a night of dancing, food and fun.  Kaycee wore her wedding gown for some romantic gallery images and their first dance as husband and wife before changing into a fun pink dress for her party!  They have truly blessed me and I can’t wait to see them in the future as I know their love for each other will only grow.  Love you guys!

Kaycee & Joseph – Wedding Ceremony at Bella Donna ChapelMckinney, Texas

Kaycee & Joseph are married and this one was a tear jerker!  I loved this couple from the moment they walked into my studio.  God has definitely orchestrated their meeting, their marriage and this beautiful day!  Today I am sharing their ceremony at Bella Donna Chapel in McKinney, Texas.   These two picked a special date, their anniversary so it landed on a Wednesday but they will be celebrating their vows with all their friends and family at The Modern Art Museum in September and I can’t wait to share that day with them!

I asked Kaycee what she was most looking forward to about her wedding and I loved the sweet reply she gave:

“The fact that it’s an intimate wedding in a unique venue, and that the reception is separate will make it memorable. We try to be intentional about the things we do, and we believe we have created some potentially amazing scenes to capture our love, the union of our families, and to share that with those we value the most.”

Their ceremony was truly intimate and sweet.  One of my favorite things about Joe & Kaycee is how the love God first, then each other.  Their ceremony was truly an act of worship and I know that their hearts are centered in His will because of what Joe told Kaycee when he proposed:

“Joe’s proposal was to be grand – a trip to Paris or something on that scale. But every time he tried to plan it out, God stopped him. He made it clear that this marriage is not about us – it’s about His will and about giving glory to Christ who has saved both of us, and He told Joe that he was to propose under Christmas lights in a very simple way that offers the marriage back to God. On that magical night under white Christmas lights, Joe put two rings on Kaycee’s finger – his engagement ring, and also an eternity band that is offered to Christ. Joe told Kaycee that she first belongs to Christ, so He gets the first ring. Joe will then put his band on her finger next to it on the day we wed.”

If that doesn’t make you cry…. I’m crying now!

Kaycee & Joe – thanks so much for sharing your love with me and I can’t wait for the party!  Shout out to all the vendors who made the day so special:

Ashley & Josh – Wedding Reception at McDavid Studio in Bass HallFort Worth, Texas

Well, these two started their relationship on the dance floor at a wedding.  Now they have officially danced the night away at their own wedding!  It was a fun filled night at Mc David Studio inside Bass Hall with DJ Nate Nelson from LeForce keeping the party going!  The ballroom was gorgeous with classic white and golds and mercury glass.  There were small touches of Navy that added a darker element and the light and airy feel of the hall was perfect.  Everyone had an amazing time!

Shout out to all the vendors who made this night so awesome:

Ashley & Josh – Wedding Ceremony at Holly Redeemer Catholic ChurchAledo, Texas

Ashley & Josh’s wedding ceremony was precious!  These two were married at their family church in Aledo where they live.  During the ceremony I loved all the stolen little glances, smiles and moments – like when Ashley asked the priest if he was going to have them kiss.  He had almost forgotten!  During the ceremony their flower girl tried to steal the show but she could not outdo how gorgeous Ashley looked!

Thanks again to the vendor team:

Ashley & Josh – Wedding First Look & Prep at Omni HotelFort Worth, Texas

Ashley & Josh are married and it was an amazingly perfect day!  What I love is that these two met at a wedding!  So I guess it was in the cards from day 1!  Here is their beginning story:

“Josh and I met 1 year ago at my cousin’s wedding. Josh met my cousins andmy brother at A&M. As I was sitting in church, I got a text from my brother (an usher) saying, “I want you to date the guy to your left). Obviously, I looked and it made things really awkward because he totally saw me checking him out. At the reception, everyone had caught on to the master plan. I would walk by and someone would yell…”There she is! Go talk to her!” or “Josh, come here, we have someone that wants to meet you!” (Neither of us had agreed to any of this) My brother decided to tell Josh that I wanted to dance and vise versa. So me being shy, I begged for him to say I couldn’t dance. So we danced a few songs and the rest was history!” – Ashley

Isn’t that the best?  My best moment from their day is the one above!  During the first look Ashley brought her had up to Josh’s face and realized he hadn’t shaved!  Their was some definite confusion on his expected grooming but they laughed it off and I think he looked dashing and so like himself!

Thanks to the following vendors who made the day so amazing!

Allison & Michael – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

The Ashton Depot looked STUNNING for Allison & Michael’s wedding reception.  Allison wanted her decor to be romantic and soft and garden like even though indoors and Tami Winn delivered with custom built table halo’s and so much more.  The Ashton Depot is always a favorite place of mine to photograph because I feel like my weddings there always look different! The space allows for so much customization and the building itself is gorgeous!

During cocktail hours and dinner the Dallas String Quartet entertained guests and the bubbly bar made sure no one was lacking a beverage.  After enjoying dinner the couple kicked off their night with toasts, cake and dancing!  Glenn Roush with LeForce Entertainment kept the dance floor fun and full as everyone celebrated Allison & Michael’s wedding.  These two were never far apart and spent the evening visiting with friends between dances.  Before the night ended we snuck out for a few  night time portraits with the downtown lights as a backdrop.  It’s so fun to get some night portraits!  Allison & Michael had a fun vintage car for their exit and we snagged some photos with it as well!

Congrats Allison & Michael!  Thank you for inviting me into your love story.  I sincerely wish we could do it all again – it was just that much fun!  I can’t wait to see the strong marriage you will walk in, the family you will build and the adventures you will go on.  Life is just beginning!

This couple had one amazing team of wedding vendors to make this day happen. Thanks to all of them!

Allison & Michael – Wedding Ceremony at Robert Carr ChapelTCU Campus, Fort Worth

Allison and Michael are married!  After 3 years of dating Michael asked Allison to marry him and now they are husband and wife starting their happily ever after with a fabulous European honeymoon (I was following every step of their trip this month and just so excited for them!). I love that travel is a part of their lives and Michael even proposed on a trip!  Here is their will you marry me story:

“We had been dating for almost 3 years before Michael got down on one knee. Michael proposed to me on 8/10/2016 on a family trip to Aspen. He planned a lovely picnic in evening with my family in music park with wine, crackers, and cheese. I was completely off guard when he surprised me with him down one knee. We will have been engaged for one year and ten months (on our wedding day)” – Allison

Michael has one of my favorite smiles ever.  Yep, ever.  When he sees Allison that smile just takes over and the joy Michael has is contagious!  When she walked down the aisle on her Daddy’s arm he looked so fully happy!  I said in my first post that Allison picked a man of character, like her Daddy.  There is no more proof than if you scroll down and check out the photos of her Daddy right before he gives her away and Michael right after he accepts his bride.  They both are looking at Allison with so much admiration, it’s undeniable that she is loved by both of them.

Thank you to everyone for pouring into this day!  This Fort Worth Wedding was amazing!

Allison & Michael – Wedding PreparationsFort Worth, Texas

This wedding was a long awaited one.  When I met Allison and her parents I knew this day was going to be special and it did not disappoint.  Allison and Michael are adorable together, the way he cares for her, protects her and lights up when he is near her is inspiring.  They are SO good together.  At the end of the night I told Allison’s Mom that her own husband is a good man and that her daughter chose wisely because I see in Michael the same genuine kindness her Dad walks in.

Allison and Michael met on a blind date but I LOVE the way Allison tells of her first meeting with “Matt”. 🙂

“For New Year’s Eve of 2014, we were set up on a blind date by friends. The party took place in Dallas. It was a wonderful evening of enjoying the company of old friends and getting to know new ones. We really seemed to take a liking to each other, and agreed to exchange numbers. I (Allison) really felt confident that Michael’s name was “Matt.” Proudly, I entered the name “Matt” into my phone and handed it to Michael to fill in the rest of the information. I quickly learned Michael’s real name. However, this didn’t discourage Michael from pursuing the relationship, and we continued to celebrate the New Years by laughing it off. After New Years, we decided to keep in touch through texts, phone calls, and Skype. Eventually, our long distance relationship became a love story. The rest of the story is history and we are very excited to begin a new journey through life together. To this day, I still have Michael in my phone as “Matt McCall” in remembrance of the first time we met.” – Allison

For getting ready Allison choose to prep in her childhood home with her closest friends.  It was so sweet to have her dress in her gown in the room that was her sanctuary then descend the winding steps to the cheers of her bridesmaids!  After a teary and joy filled reveal with Dad everyone gathered around and her Mother prayed over Allison and the wedding and marriage that was about to begin.  Chills, smiles and some misty eyes were definitely happening behind my camera!

Thanks to all my wedding vendor friends for making this emotional day even better!
