Mr & Mrs Ryan Batla – First United & City Club Fort Worth

        Bride and Groom Portrait in courtyard of First United Methodist Church Fort Worth

        Lauren and Ryan were married on May 8th at First United Methodist of Fort Worth where Lauren’s Mom, Sandy, works.  It made it so special that it has been her family church and it is also one of the most gorgeous churches in down town.  I just love my Fort Worth weddings and this was no exception as we had perfect weather and had a fun filled day.  From the special moments with Lauren and her sister Mellisa to the revealing of the outrageous life sized deer cake for Ryan we had a great time.  The reception at City Club of Fort Worth was full of dancing, great times and amazing comfort food from macaroni and cheese to sliders.  I know these two had a fabulous time on their honeymoon in St. Lucia and I bet they are dying to see some photos so with out further ado here are some favorite images from their wedding.
