Madeleine & Joe – Wedding Ceremony at Holy Family & Reception at Shady Oaks Country ClubFort Worth, Texas


Madeleine & Joe had an amazing winter wedding.  After a sweet and emotion filled ceremony at Holy Family Catholic Church we celebrated at Shady Oaks Country Club.  I loved that Madeleine embraced the season and had winter inspired floral and even had Santa & Mrs. Claus greeting their guests.  It was truly a magical night.

Elisabeth & William – Wedding at Holy Family Catholic Church with Preparations at Fort Worth Club

Elisabeth and Will’s wedding day was a dream come true.  Every moment was beautiful and it was a complete privilege to be able to document their day.  From the moment Elisabeth slipped her Pronovias dress on she took my breath away and continued to do so the rest of the evening.  Their love is beautiful and watching them together made me truly happy – yep, I am lucky to do what I do!  This favorite above is from moments after their first look at The Fort Worth Club before heading over to Holy Catholic Family Church.  Multiple reflections and natural light make it scrumptious.  Read on for more about their preparations, first look and ceremony.

Thanks to Julie Eastman with Extraordinary Events and Design for pulling Elisabeth’s fairy-tale together and all the vendors that made it perfection.

What girl doesn’t love a fabulous pair of flat shoes from Jimmy Choo, I can see her wearing these for years to come with some cute skinny jeans.

Elisabeth’s Mom is so sweet, she was so full of JOY all day!

Elisabeth’s engagement ring and signature scent for her day.

IN LOVE with this image, might be one of my most favorite getting ready shots ever.  So simple and classic.

I can always count on her for a little silliness.  It takes confidence to be such a ham and she has it in spades.

Elisabeth carried her Mother’s high school prom purse, so delicate.

Will hung out with his men, read the paper and enjoyed some laughs to counter his nerves before seeing his bride.

NOW that is how a man looks when he sees his loved all dressed in white!

AND that is how a bride looks at her soul mate.  Swoon!

A little fix to make him perfect.

Loved Elisabeth’s bouquet by Deitra with Lush Couture Floral.  To make it even more special she carried a rosary  blessed by the pope, given to her by her Godmother.

Classic bunches of white floral adorning the church pews.

Will awaiting his bride at the altar.

Here comes the bride!

Their priest gave excellent marriage advice and I think they were taking it all in.

Smiles all around as Will said his vows to his beloved.

Slipping the ring upon her finger, she is now his.

This was a beautiful part of the ceremony, the god parents of Elisabeth presented an alms (I think that is what they called it.)  Will promised to take care of Elisabeth and others in the way that Christ served, it was touching.

First photo as husband and wife and OH so cute!

It was a cold day so we only ran out for a minute before seeking warmth but it was worth it!

Look at those ladies!  Gorgeous in the Bliss Bridal attire!
