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:

Callie & Ryan – Wedding Reception at The Modern Art MuseumFort Worth, Texas

Callie & Ryan’s wedding reception at The Modern was fun filled and gorgeous!  Hands down though the private last dance took the night for me!  We may have danced all night but when their guests went outside to prepare to send them off to the honeymoon these two took to the dance floor alone.  They just melted into each others arms, kisses, smiles and sweet tears of joy (see above) were the perfect end to a fabulous wedding day.  Congrats Callie & Ryan and thank you for allowing me to be a part of your story.  I wish you the best Happily Ever After!

Christy & Mark – Wedding Reception at Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

Christy & Mark’s cobalt blue and white reception at The Ashton Depot was so fun!  It may have rained during cocktail hour but the sun cam out and gave them beautiful light until sunset in this airy space.  They have moved around so much with school and jobs that these two had a ton of out of town guests for their wedding.  I love how they incorporated little touches of Texas for their guests from welcome boxes to sugar cookies in Texas shapes at the place settings.  At the reception Christy’s dress really shined – her custom designed dress by a local Colleyville designer was unique and had a gorgeous custom cape!
