I had SOOOO much time with these two for photos and that makes me one very happy photographer.  The fact that they are smitten for each other is just a bonus!  Love this sweet and intimate image above showing off the beauty of Robert Carr Chapel on the campus of Texas Christian University and of course their sweetness.  After these two were pronounced man and wife we headed over to Artspace 111 for their wedding reception.  That had an intimate party with their closest friends and family.  Over delicious food from Reata and cakes from Creme de la Creme everyone enjoyed chatting and connecting with one another.  I truly am so blessed to get to be apart of peoples lives and participate in their wedding days.  Congrats you two and I know you will have a long and happy life together!

Starting this post a little different.  Usually I pick a really cute photo of the couple to kick off a wedding blog but this day was different.  There were tons of great photos of Kelley & John but THIS image, this image is my favorite.  Why?  Because when he walked around the corner to see his Kelley, John reacted in the way every girl hopes.  It was so beautiful,  full of emotion and perfection.  It is what first looks are supposed to be and why they are exactly what some couples need to do.  (I am not a pushy person about them, I fully believe you should go with your guts and keep it traditional if that is what feels right.)  This images sets the tone for their day in every way.

Well enough of breaking the mold, onto the standard post.  🙂  I could sum up this day with one word, HUGS!  This couple and their families like to hug so very much that every time I turned around everyone was loving on each other.  They truly are so close to their loved ones it was a pleasure to spend their day with them.  We met up at The Omni Hotel in Fort Worth for some getting ready and make up by Halo Salon.  John joined us on the balcony to see his bride for the first time before we ran off for some portraits and then their ceremony.

Mallory & Ryan {Married} Part 1 Preperations, Bridal Portraits & Ceremony

This wedding was near and dear to my heart as it was my second wedding with the Bride’s family. A little over a year ago I photographed Mallory’s sisters wedding so I felt right at home with her parents, brother and grandma.  Although I may have been meeting Ryan’s family for the first time they were SO sweet and made me feel like I’ve known them for ever.  My strong attachment to them meant narrowing down photos for them has been HARD!!!  So in conclusion I will be sharing 2 blogs of this awesome Robert Carr wedding and Stonegate Mansion Reception.

I met up with Mallory and her gang of girls for preparations at Stonegate Mansion where we were joined by the hair and make up team of Halo Salon.  After Mallory slipped into her gown we headed to the chapel for her wedding.  After the Mom’s were seated they joined hands and walked to the altar to light the unity candles.  I knew it would be emotional and from the first moment those doors opened to reveal Mallory and her Dad, Ken, my heart beat faster.  Behind me I know Ryan’s must have been booming in his chest too as he grinned as she walked down the aisle towards him.  I loved that through out the day Mallory was always hugging on her Dad, from giving her away to right after the ceremony as she cried as he held her.

Today I also wanted to share a few of Mallory’s bridal portraits that we took a few months ago at the Gaylord and Lake Grapevine.  Bridals are one of my favorite things and it was so great to spend the afternoon with her and her Mom, Stacey.  Keep a look out for Part 2 with their romantic portraits, more details and a reception that rocked thanks to Randall Stout Entertainment!

 

Kendall & Jason {Married!} Robert Carr Chapel & City Club Fort Worth – Part 2 Moments

Oh the moments.  I get all giddy about romantic photos weather they are planned and prompted or completely true and just unfold before me.  This first photo is one of my favorites from Kendall and Jason’s wedding day.  After the ceremony amongst all their family and bridal party Jason took this moment just to squeeze his new wife.  I love it.  Here is their day, beautiful in every way.

A quiet moment before getting on her gown.

Kendall is such a beauty and she reminds me of a Hollywood starlet in this photo.

A fabulous group of girls on the steps of Robert Carr Chapel.

Jason getting a little help by Sarah Halferty.

A good looking group of guys at Robert Carr Chapel.

Ken is such a great Daddy and I love how he kissed her on the cheek as he gave his daughter to her husband.

My new favorite ceremony shot from Robert Carr, love the sense of place that it has.

Heck yeah!  Married!

A little twirl during their first dance.

Jason and Kendall planned out a little ruse for their guests.  Kendall playfully wiped cake on his face and he stormed out of the room.  She followed but only to re-enter with TCU’s mascot, Super Frog!! Everyone went nuts as most of the guests were TCU grads.

TCU Alumni Photo

The REALLY wanted that bouquet.  Above by Sarah Halferty.  Mallory, Kendall’s sister, caught it and I am hoping she gets the luck of getting married soon.  Well, not too soon, Ken & Stacey need a wedding planning break.

Next to be married???

It was definitely a dancing crowd and Randall Stout kept them happy and on the floor all night.

A private last dance before running off.  This is one of my favorite things because it gives the couple a moment to reflect on their reception and the day.
