Laura & Dave – Wedding Ceremony at Highland Park United MethodistDallas, Texas

Laura & Dave are just adorable together.  Their wedding day was fun filled and oh so sweet!  These two were introduced through a mutual friend Gabe, she knew Dave from law school and once night after a fun night out they met up and thus started the road to the altar.  It took a little bit as Laura & Dave didn’t go on their first official date until a little over a month later.  What started with Instagram likes and friend hang outs became more quickly!  Here is what Laura had to say about their beginnings:

“Our “official first date” was Shakespeare in the Park for a showing of Romeo and Juliet. From then on we were pretty much inseparable (I think there were only 4 or 5 days we didn’t actually see each other during the first 6 months we had dated), and still love to go to Shakespeare in the Park on a regular basis as season pass holders.  I knew within the first three weeks after Shakespeare in the Park that the was “the one”, and after he told me “I love you” (he said it first!) on Labor Day 2015, and I may have immediately started saving pictures of engagement rings on my phone…”

I just love them!  Thanks to all the vendors who made their wedding day so special!  My favorite part about their ceremony is that Laura grew up looking out her window at Cox Chapel, she saw so many brides in white dresses taking photos outside.  On this day it was her turn!  It was fun to do some getting ready in her childhood home across the street before saying I Do in the chapel!

Ashely & Jim – Wedding Ceremony at Highland Park United MethodistDallas, Texas


An online dating app brought these two together in 2015 and the timing could not have been more perfect for them.  Through their relationship they have travelled the world, overcome life and job changes and stood firm in their faith against illness.  The love they have for each other is truly beautiful and their firm foundation in Christ in undeniable.  To celebrate their love for the Lord and that Ashley has overcome illness during the ceremony Jim played a worship song – Blessings. This song was their rock, her anthem fighting through treatment over the last year but it was also a declaration of God’s love.  It was so beautiful and sweet and I sang along with joy for the truth that is God’s work in Ashley and Jim’s life.

I love what Ashley says about Jim:

“I don’t know that I’ve ever met anyone with a heart as big as Jim, who would 110% rather give than receive. Fortunately for me, I ‘ve managed to be on the receiving end of his generosity and I know that a huge part of Jim said,” I DO,” 20 months ago. For that……Gratitude.”

Jim is a good man and he love’s Ashley for her heart:

“I learned long ago that you can tell a lot about a person by looking at how loyal they are to their friends and how loyal their friends are to them. Ashley has so many loyal and caring people in her life, and after being with her for two years now, I know why. Her caring spirit, her dedication to serving others, and her willingness to always be there for those closest to her are traits that I have come to love and cherish. I will always look up to Ashley for how she treats others and she truly does show her strong Christian faith through her love for others.”

Thank you to all the vendor’s who made this celebration such a special one!
