My time with Kaycee and Joseph has been truly special. I love that they made their wedding days all about them! The separated their wedding ceremony and reception onto different dates and the outcome was perfect! You can see their wedding day at Bella Donna Chapel here but this post is all about the celebration of their marriage! Kaycee & Joseph invited all their favorite people to The Modern Art Museum for a night of dancing, food and fun. Kaycee wore her wedding gown for some romantic gallery images and their first dance as husband and wife before changing into a fun pink dress for her party! They have truly blessed me and I can’t wait to see them in the future as I know their love for each other will only grow. Love you guys!
Thanks to the following team for making their day so great!
Christy & Mark are fun, lighthearted but old souls. This combination makes for a couple that loves fiercely and enjoys one another even in the most simple of things. Mark is definitely a romantic based on his well thought out proposal. Here is their engagement story in Christy’s words:
“Mark and I first saw each other in the state Capitol building in Austin, but didn’t really meet until several months later. So, for our proposal, he asked me to come to the capitol for a business dinner he had. Once I got there, he met me in the large rotunda, and said we were actually going to get a private tour of the capitol building from one of his State Trooper friends. He then took us up this tiny, windy staircase, and out on to the balcony overlooking downtown Austin at sunset. That’s when he got down on one knee — and said that he knew when he first saw me 2 year prior, that he couldn’t imagine life without me. Both my family, and his family, and my two closest friends were all hiding behind a pillar, they jumped out and said congratulations! I was so glad he had these people who mean so much to us, travel to be there for such a special moment!”
For their engagement session we had fun strolling through Trinity Park taking in the fall color and had some fun on the playground and stopped to feed some duckies. My favorite part of their session was playing amidst The Modern art museum Christmas lights! I love the effects of the lights in the photos and I think everyone needs to take a break from life to just enjoy the little things sometimes and there is no better time of year to do that than the holidays. I hope your Holiday is filled with light and cheer as Christy & Mark’s relationship most definitely is!
The Modern Art Museum of For tWorth is always a fave spot of mine – the venue has the most gorgeous architecture and being photographed in front of world class art is kind of amazing. With an exhibit taking up the downstairs of the museum Philip, the museum guru, took me to a few spots I don’t usually get to visit including this fun lit piece above that was made for a romantic silhouette shot!
The grand hall was stunning with the grey’s of the museum against the silver and plum purples of the reception design by Tami Winn Events. Lighting by It’s your night entertainment brought depth to the space. To really escalate the bar spaces Tami Winn brought in hedge walls and bar facades. So pretty!
Megan & Dylan entered the grand hall via the cat walk above their reception and welcomed guests before sitting down to dinner. After cake and some mingling we moved the party to the cafe where the oval custom dance floor became center stage. During the first dance Megan’s Daddy some how unplugged all the lighting systems but these two kept going and we kept photographing – it was definitely one of those funny moments that will forever be a wedding day story. Megan & Dylan partied, danced, tossed bouquets & garter’s and savored every moment of their wedding reception!
I could not make all the beautiful images without the help of a fabulous vendor team, thanks to these guys for making my job easy!

Chelsea & Spencer hosted their reception at The Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth. We always love working there as the galleries are a super special treat to be able to photograph in. The couple walked the catwalk and down the grand stairs to the great hall at the Modern to kick off their reception with their first dance. The museum looked perfect with the soft pinks, whites and golds and I just loved the unique head table installation. After dinner and parent dances the band’s horn section led back into the cafe for a night of dancing and fun. Chelsea and Spencer spent much of the evening chatting up their guest, giving lots of hugs and never to far from each others sides. Congratulations you two! It was an amazing night and I am so happy we were able to be with you!
This was one beautiful wedding made possible by the following team of vendors:
The Modern is one of my favorite place to photograph – gorgeous architecture, sounded by world class art. I love it! I was so glad that we had a few stolen moments in the galleries and outside the museum to capture some images of Michelle & Dustin alone before their party kicked off! After these it was go go go and dance dance dance! Emerald City kept the floor packed ALL NIGHT with their high energy and amazing showman ship. Lush Couture Floral made the great hall come to life with gorgeous floral. I loved the unique set up with a centerpiece of seating and reserved tables for family anchoring the room and decor. For more of their day check out their wedding highlight shlideshow:
Thanks again to all the fab vendors who worked together to create a flawless day for the couple:
Michelle and Dustin just arrived home over the weekend from their honeymoon in Bora Bora and as they sit down to start their week back in reality I am so excited to share their wedding images! Their day was pretty amazing and we were happy to get to share in it with them. From getting ready at the Omni this two were having a blast surrounded by their friends and family. I loved Michele’s fabulous shoes and her lace dress with cap sleeves and cut out back. They had some adorable kids in attendance that stole our hearts during getting ready. My favorite part of this day hands down was the entrance of the bride. Before those doors even opened to reveal Michelle, Dustin was already getting teary and you could see the anticipation just over taking him. It was SO sweet! Can’t wait to share this couples fun filled reception at The Modern tomorrow! Thanks to the vendors who made Michelle & Dustin’s wedding such a success!
Abby & Jeff had a fabulous reception at The Modern after their Robert Carr Chapel Wedding Ceremony. Upon arrival and after a short introduction and dinner I stole these two away for photos in the galleries and outdoors with the building as a beautiful night time backdrop. The opportunity to photograph a couple with amazing architecture and artwork is one of my favorite parts of this unique reception venue. After dinner in the Grand Hall the party moved to the cafe where IDT Band was set up to fill the night with music! The floor was full and everyone, including me, had a great time. Congrats you two on your marriage and I know there are great things in your future!
Abby & Jeff’s Fort Worth wedding reception was pulled together by the following vendors:
Abby & Jeff are married! They wed on 4.5.2014 with their ceremony at Robert Carr Chapel and reception following at The Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth. We met up the couple before for getting ready photos. Abby and her ladies were pampered at The Omni and had their hair and makeup done by Beauty and the Blush. They had fun listening to tunes, singing along, telling stories and laughing at some bachelorette party gifts. The boys were just as lively and Jeff and his manly men donned their vests (with no shirts) for some silly group photos. I love some guys with a sense of humor! For this couple’s first look they saw one another as bride and groom for the first time in the chapel at TCU. Their pup Bentley joined them for a few “family” pics before they said their I Do’s. This couple is incredibly sweet and are just totally fun to work with. I had a great day with them and can’t wait to share their reception at one of my favorite reception spaces, The Modern!
Thanks to all the vendors who helped make their wedding day dreams come true.
Jamie and Oscar and the most sincere people and it was amazing to be with them on their wedding day at Robert Carr Chapel and The Modern Art Museum in Fort Worth. Their families are lovely in every way and I spent allot of time behind my camera smiling and with moist eyes for these guys. From getting ready and Jamie’s reaction to her veil and Oscar’s face as she walked down the aisle to him it was just perfection. Their ceremony was officiated by Love Notes my favorite minister team. The Modern was the perfect backdrop for their reception as Oscar is an art history buff and it is simply one of the most beautiful places in the world to have your wedding. The reception was perfected with William Ryan of It’s Your Night Entertainment lighting and music and of course scrumptious cakes from The Cake Guys. Read on for more of their day, their moments and of course the FUN they had! Here is a glimpse further into their day with their highlight reel:
LOVED Jamie’s reaction to her veil, so sweet! I think the veil makes every girl feel like it is REAL!
A few day of bridal portraits for this stunning girl.
Love this one, so serene and pretty!

This adorable ring bearer out ran the bridesmaids he was so eager to get his job over with.
Now that is the face of one happy guy looking at his beautiful wife to be.
This gang was silly and FUN! (see below)
And NOW…..photos in the galleries at The Modern – the very coolest backdrop you can ever have for your wedding portraits.
This new installation is super cool and it has a very BLUE effect making this image look allot like a cyanotype (for the photo nerds out there.)

A sweet welcome to his guests and his bride.

Did I mention fun? Yeah, Jamie’s Dad and Brother knew how to cut a rug and get us all laughing.
Private last dance before their getaway.
Congrats you two! I wish you a lifetime of happiness!
Bailey and Brandon are SO stinkin cute, I mean, look at them! Bailey is gorgeous and Brandon, strong and handsome as he may be also is a giant goof and I love that. These two toughed it out with me on one HOT morning this month but it was completely worth it. They are from Midland and had photos taken there so we got to play and get them a very different vibe up here in Fort Worth. They met through mutual friends and after a few missteps Brandon finally got his intentions across to Ms. Bailey and they have been a match ever since. I can’t wait for the Winter Wedding at The Ashton Garden designed and planned by the always amazing Julie Eastman of Extraordinary Events and Design.
