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!

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!

Christy & Mark – Wedding Portraits at St Patricks, Art Museum & StockyardsFort Worth, Texas

 

Christy and Mark were so excited to get married at St Patrick’s Cathedral, its a lovely historic church that resembles the church that Mark’s parents were married.  These two love family, friends and value relationship and I can totally see how they honored those feelings through out their wedding day.  After the ceremony we took advantage of the break between ceremony and reception and traveled Fort Worth by bus for some fun photos at the art museums and the Stockyards.  The couple both wore cowboy boots so the stockyards were the perfect place for some fun pics with the bridesmaids and groomsmen.  Christy’s boots are super fun, the white Luchesse boots like the Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders wear!

Thanks to all the vendors for making their portraits so beautiful!

Jackie & Matt – Wedding Reception at Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

Jackie & Matt’s wedding was AMAZING!  I love photographing at the Ashton Depot but Tami Winn transformed the space, accentuated the gorgeous architectual details then brought in unique touches like the custom laser cut columns and draped greenery.  It was just beautiful!  This wedding reception was only pretty but it was FUN! Jackie and Matt hopped from dancing to visiting and made some stops to their MirMir photo booth!  The band, brought from Memphis, pulled Jackie up on stage with her bridesmaids for some fun dancing!  As the guests prepped outside for a sparkler exit Jackie and Matt shared a few special moments alone on the dance floor.

The sun was setting as this couple said I Do so we snuck off for some romantic portraits before the light slipped away right after the ceremony.   These two are just darling together and their bridal party was so much fun!  During the reception Katherine & Mason had a blast dancing, chatting up their friends and having fun before a sparkler send off!

Katherine & Mason – Wedding Ceremony & PreperationsAshton Depot & Private Residence

Katherine & Mason’s day was fun and so full of emotion.  We had a blast with them from getting ready at an Air B&B to walking down the aisle.  The girls all stayed the night – had a big slumber party complete with pineapple PJ’s the night before the wedding at the Air B&B where they prepared for the wedding.  The ladies had so much fun laughing, dancing and being silly together.  Mom wasn’t left out either on the fun!  An the Depot these two were married in the courtyard outside in front of the fountain under string lights at sunset.  It was perfect in every way!

Bethany & Tyler – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

This wedding reception is one I will likely never forget.  At the end of the night I told Tyler that he is one of the coolest and most fun groom’s I have ever worked with.  Tyler and Bethany both are a joy to be around and they made the best of their 4 hour reception.  I am pretty sure they danced, hugged, talked and laughed with at least every guest they had.  From the moment they walked in the tone was set for a killer night – as the doors opened and the band announced the Mr & Mrs and played “All I do is Win”  these two entered the reception arms in the air and tore up the dance floor before their first dance had even begun.  Their entrance was epic and it didn’t stop there.  Reception’s are about more than the couple – they are about all the invited guest and loved ones.  During this party I loved watching the parents interact with one another and their children.  We caught Tyler hugging Bethany’s parents, chatting up his Dad and brother and being a little crazy on the stage with the band.  Bethany sang with the band from the dance floor, had fun dancing beside her husband and stole lots of kisses from him all night.

To top all of that – Bethany and Tyler are my 4th couple in a group of friends I have been so lucky to photograph.  Having 3 of my past couples dancing along side me as I captured this night was priceless.  Building relationships with my couples and seeing them time and again at other friends weddings is such a huge reward.  I’m looking forward to sharing the dance floor with all 8 of them next year at another one!

Abbey & Andrew – Wedding Reception at The Ashton DepotFort Worth, Texas

When you put a gorgeous couple at the Ashton Depot you really can’t go wrong and this night was amazing.  The team with Out of the Garden filled the space with beautiful tall centerpieces that had so much texture and interesting shapes.  The room was color washed and the ceiling had a patterned gobo to really make the depot look full and vibrant!  As the guests arrived they enjoyed cocktails on the tented patio with passed appetizers  and lounge furniture.

As the band announced the bridal party the anticipation built and when the Mr. & Mrs. where finally called into the room everyone stood and applauded as they took to the dance floor for their first dance.  Abbey and Andrew could not have been smiling bigger as they held each other close and Andrew spinned and dipped his new wife!  We jumped right into dances with Mom and Dad before settling into a fabulous dinner by The Ashton Depot.  During toasts everyone laughed at the silly stories and sweet words of their bridal party and Abbey’s Dad.  I love watching the parents during toasts and I captured Abbey’s parents being oh so sweet to one another.  🙂

Then it was PARTY time!  Drinks in the air, jumping and dancing and cutting up on the dance floor!  The Downtown Fever Band led everyone on night that was jam packed with fun.  I am sure many feet were aching when it was time to depart.  As guests lit sparklers Abbey & Andrew enjoyed a private last dance.  One last moment in their wedding reception before dashing off to their vintage limo.

I am lucky to have such gorgeous and kind clients and even more so that they select such great vendors to work along side:
