Ariana had so much fun with Britni in Fort Worth for her bridal session.  I just love her dress by Sophia Tolli – it fits her perfectly and her ring – BLING!  This session was so much fun and I really love how they came out.  Rock it Britni!

We first met Britni at a bridal show and knew that this bride was unique and the wedding was going to be epic – and it was.  The details, the venue and the whole day was just right.  Ariana again knocked it out of the park.   We love working with amazing brides and Britni was one of them.  Ray and Britni make a great team together and all their friends and family made the day extra special for them.   Congrats to the bride and groom!

The Laurel | Elliot & Jill

Jill and Elliot were married at The Laurel in Grapevine and it was a beautiful day for a wedding.   Ariana shot this perfectly and did an excellent job, I don’t know what I would do without her.   Jill’s stunning dress sparkled in the sunlight and the images with her and her daughter Sophie will just melt your heart.  I am so happy for this new family and I wish them nothing but the best.  Congratulations on your wedding!

This is a wedding that I really wanted to blog.  I just love and adore this couple and was so excited about their wedding.  The day started off pretty good, cloudy and humid.  I knew it would rain but did I ever think that it would rain the way it did and when it did????  NEVER!   That’s okay though, sometimes when things go crazy and you think it’s just awful, you take a look around and know that you are surround by your favorite people and that everything would be okay.

The rain came – and it did before we could get Lexi into the chapel for her first look.   But she had her friends to help cover her up and get her over there to see her groom.  We were able to get the first look in before too many guests started to show up and fill the chapel.  Just as they were about to start the ceremony, the power went out.  No music, no lights not nothing!  Luckily we had a lot of natural light from the windows and the amazing Ginny with Julep Events was able to find a way to get music playing for Lexi so that she could walk down he aisle.

The Ceremony was just beautiful – Lexi looked amazing and Austin smiled and left tears of joy in Lexi’s eyes – then wiped them off!   As soon as the ceremony was over the power came back on!!!!  YAY!  We finished up all the formals and headed into the reception for Lexi and Austin to party the night away.  This will be a wedding I never forget.  I applaud you two, you kept it together and you both looked amazing.  The wedding was perfect and now you can sit back and smile about all the crazy things.  I promise you – it was worth it!
