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.

Rachel & Lee – Wedding at First United Methodist Church, Rehearsal at The Fort Worth Zoo Gallery and Bridal Portraits

Rachel and Lee had a fabulous wedding at First United Methodist Church in downtown Fort Worth where Rachel has been attending church all her life.  It was a perfect day with lots of fun and laughter and a couple that I truly love.  I joined them the night before their wedding for their rehearsal at the Fort Worth Zoo Gallery.  Lee’s Mother pulled together a beautiful event with tropical flowers like birds of paradise in the arrangements.  On the wedding day I met up with Rachel and her bridesmaids at The Ridglea Country Club before heading over to her church.  We photographed Rachel’s bridal portraits at the church and a private residence a few months ago and I am so excited to finally be able to share them.  Her girls made me laugh and I loved how Lee looked towards his best man right before Rachel walked down the aisle.  Lee smiled as he shook his Father in Law’s hand and accepted his bride and Rachel beamed at him during the vows.  It was pretty amazing!  Check back tomorrow for their very energetic reception!
