Cassie & Lee – Destination Wedding in Louisiana

I love different!  I love things that are meaningful and full of heart and soul.  Cassie and Lee are all about those things and every aspect of their intimate wedding getaway in Louisiana demonstrated that.  Off the beaten path in Chalybeate Springs these two married in a church that Lee’s family has attended for generations.  This heart connection was why they chose to fly a small party of their closest friends and family to the location to celebrate with them.  After a touching ceremony a light lunch reception was hosted outside the church with Cajun cuisine and cake.  The day was pulled together by the fabulous Tami Winn Events.

Thanks to all the amazing vendors both at home in Fort Worth and in Louisiana that helped make this day so beautiful.

Ashley & Chance – Wedding photography at Aristide Event Center in Mansfield, Texas Part 1 – Preperation, Ceremony & Details

Ashley & Chance were married on May 5th at the Aristide Event Center in Mansfield, Texas.  It was a perfect day and we were so lucky to get to share it with them.  Ashley and her ladies had fun, sipped on mimosas and laughed allot as they prepared for the wedding.  Chance’s daughter joined them in the getting ready room as her Daddy prepped on the other side of the building.  The light was perfect during their outside ceremony and it was completely sweet even if we were all a tad sweaty.  🙂  Check back next week for their romantics & reception which was one high energy dance party thanks to the band Limelight.

All of the beautiful details at their wedding were pulled together by my friend Lucia Bitnar with Foster Blue.  She is a fabulous wedding coordinator and designer.  Other vendors that helped make it picture perfect are:

One of my favorite ring shots ever, I loved that Lucia played on Chance’s name with these Monopoly themed cards that were on cocktail tables.

I loved all the details from the mis-matched vintage vessels that held the flowers, touches of lace, the cake table and the subtle nod to Cinco de Mayo with the sodas and candy from Mexico.  It was perfect.

No little girl like having their hair done (I know I didn’t) so I just adore this photo. It captures that spirit that kids have.

Little girls and wedding dress are what dreams are made of.

Becoming a bride, one of my favorite parts!

I love this image as it is truly Ashley’s first moments seeing her groom.  With windy paths so often the center aisle isn’t where the true action is.  This shot through the crowd proves it.

High fives are amazing!

Including Chance’s daughter in their ceremony was important.  Before they said their vows to one another Chance said a few words to his little girl and Ashley presented her with a bracelet.  So sweet.
