Allison & Michael – Wedding PreparationsFort Worth, Texas

This wedding was a long awaited one.  When I met Allison and her parents I knew this day was going to be special and it did not disappoint.  Allison and Michael are adorable together, the way he cares for her, protects her and lights up when he is near her is inspiring.  They are SO good together.  At the end of the night I told Allison’s Mom that her own husband is a good man and that her daughter chose wisely because I see in Michael the same genuine kindness her Dad walks in.

Allison and Michael met on a blind date but I LOVE the way Allison tells of her first meeting with “Matt”. 🙂

“For New Year’s Eve of 2014, we were set up on a blind date by friends. The party took place in Dallas. It was a wonderful evening of enjoying the company of old friends and getting to know new ones. We really seemed to take a liking to each other, and agreed to exchange numbers. I (Allison) really felt confident that Michael’s name was “Matt.” Proudly, I entered the name “Matt” into my phone and handed it to Michael to fill in the rest of the information. I quickly learned Michael’s real name. However, this didn’t discourage Michael from pursuing the relationship, and we continued to celebrate the New Years by laughing it off. After New Years, we decided to keep in touch through texts, phone calls, and Skype. Eventually, our long distance relationship became a love story. The rest of the story is history and we are very excited to begin a new journey through life together. To this day, I still have Michael in my phone as “Matt McCall” in remembrance of the first time we met.” – Allison

For getting ready Allison choose to prep in her childhood home with her closest friends.  It was so sweet to have her dress in her gown in the room that was her sanctuary then descend the winding steps to the cheers of her bridesmaids!  After a teary and joy filled reveal with Dad everyone gathered around and her Mother prayed over Allison and the wedding and marriage that was about to begin.  Chills, smiles and some misty eyes were definitely happening behind my camera!

Thanks to all my wedding vendor friends for making this emotional day even better!

After a kiss to seal their marriage Craig and Bree were all smiles as the turned to their family and friends.  Those infectious smiles made it easy and fun to photograph these two.  As the couple arrived at the family ranch a few hours before the I Do’s they prepped is separate homes on site.  Bree was stunning in her Pronovias gown with a  lace caplet that made her look.  I love a girl that knows what she likes and Bree knows.  She wanted some type of sleeves and by adding this little lace bolero she achieved exactly what she wanted. It was sophisticated with her high top knot style bun and a the textured mermaid skirt.  Her ladies shined in dresses from Nordstrom.  The guys went classic and relaxed in gray suiting with suspenders and no jackets to keep cool on this hot summer day.  Craig’s jacket however pulled his look tighter and made him a polished groom.

 

As guests arrived they were greeted by the family dog complete with a flower wreath of baby’s breath.  I love that they turned everything around and kicked off the day with a cocktail hour.  So guests enjoyed the shade, cold drinks and light snacks before the wedding.  During the ceremony as the sun began to set vows were said and this to were married!  Lots of laughs, big smiles, and sweet moments.  Check back tomorrow for their energy filled party and of course thank you to the following vendor team who made this day such a sucess!

Sarah – Bridal Portraits on Private Property with Horses & Dogs

On the day of Sarah’s bridal portraits earlier this year it was a very rainy, blustery day.  She envisioned outdoor portraits on her parents property accompanied by one of their horses and her doggies.  Well, since we didn’t get the perfect weather then we scheduled a post wedding session to allow Sarah to have her dream photos and I am so glad we did.  The horse was beautiful and such a compliment to her look and feel.  Loved it!  I think these photos are the perfect compliment to the indoor photos we took earlier this year, want to see?  Check them out here.  Sarah I am so glad I had a chance to photograph you again, your wedding was a blessing and I adore you and Michael families and friends.  Can’t wait for the next adventure so I have an excuse to photograph you again.  (Have I mentioned I have the best job – I get to hang out with the most amazing people!)

-Tracy
