Editorial Photo Shoot with Brides of North TexasTabletop with Jacqueline Events at The Laurel


This table top design with Jacqueline Events was gorgeous!  I loved the use of rental furniture, and the long statement floral on the table.  The color palette with soft sage greens and pinks, light coral’s and whites was touchable and soft.  Di Fiori always impress’ me with their use of flowers.  The invitation suite by Goldie Design Co was perfection with soft floral details and wax stamped envelopes.  We photographed this editorial at the new and lovely venue, The Laurel, in Grapevine.  Its natural green backdrop exterior areas were perfect backdrops to this classic design.  Big shout out to our other vendor partners Honeylove Cakery, Prop Maker Luxury Event Rentals & Farm to Market Catering!

Celebration de Lamour – A French Picnic styled photo shoot with Tami Winn Events and Brides of North Texas Magazine

SS14_BONT_Tabletop_TamiWinn_01_1This tabletop shoot was one to remember!  I love when planners and designers think outside the box and Tami Winn definitely did with this French inspired picnic. The low ground level tables surrounded by posh pillows were so inviting.  I adored the bold striped linens, the classic gold and pops of pink.  Treats were provided by the Four Seasons Resort with a ruffled cake by Creme de la Creme.  This sweet picnic took place with one of my real couples, Kristy & Jared, at the Four Seasons in Dallas Spa Poll Deck.  This pocket of pretty green grass, surrounded by trees created a haven for our set and lovely couple.  To add to the outdoor vibe we were joined by a little frenchie, a french bulldog that is, Bruiser.  Bruiser is the pup of one Dallas’ best DJ’s, Glenn Roush.  Thanks to all the vendors who took part in this photo shoot and check it out in the pages of Brides of North Texas Magazine!

Classic Oaks Ranch – An amazing rustic wedding and reception venue


I love ranch weddings and I am so excited to see more and more beautiful ranch’s opening up their gates to brides and grooms.  Classic Oaks Ranch is a new wedding and reception venue in Mansfield, Texas and I fell in love as soon as I drove through the gates.  I was greeted by a few camels, rolling landscape with oak trees and some beautiful cattle.  The ranch is 230 acres and is a working cattle and equestrian facility.

Their ceremony spot is a natural altar between two towering Oak Trees.  Also on site is an 18,000 square foot climate controlled event barn with a stone fireplace, a bridal suite including a fully equipped salon, groom lounge, guest accommodations, and a 2,500 square foot party pavilion.  It is breathtaking and the perfect place for a rustic vintage ranch wedding.

I was thrilled to be invited by the owners of the ranch and Gold Dust Vintage to participate in a photo shoot to show off their recently renovated facility.  We were joined by Daniel Troupe of Lynn Films who captures our shenanigans on film and gives you a much better feel for the flow and vibe at Classic Oaks.  All of our vintage rentals were provided by Gold Dust Vintage, they have an fantastic array of items for rent for any event.  Twigs Floral provided all of our flowers.  My favorite bridal salon, Bliss Bridal, provided our two gowns.  Todd Bush, with Oliver’s Fine Foods, brought us some scrumptious items to complete our head table.  May I serve you provided table linens and other rentals and Lucia Bitnar with Foster Blue helped style the day.  Paper products provided by Inviting Ink.

Check out Daniel’s video, you can tell we had fun & that this new wedding location is perfection!  To see it full screen go HERE.

Vickie & Rocky {Married 43 Years} A sweet styled anniversary shoot

I have a very good job and I get to be a part of so many couples start at life together.  Working with Vickie and Rocky was such a rare treat because I got to see the other side, 43 years into marriage and still most definitely in love.  Best part of the shoot hands down is when Vickie said to Rocky “you’re supposed to kiss me now!”  Can’t tell you how often I hear that at engagement sessions.  One day I hope to photograph my clients at their 15, 25 and more anniversary’s but I was honored these two trusted myself and Lindsey Price of So Glamorous photo styling to put this session together.  When I arrived at their home I immediately fell in love and I was so glad we had chosen to shoot there.  They live int he quaintest little cottage feeling house that is actually not true vintage but built from reclaimed wood and is filled with fabulous treasures.  Lindsey actually found most of the items in their shoot within their own house.  All though I love the images individually if you really want a glimpse at this story watch their slide show, it’s the best.
