Sabrina and Thomas had an elegant, winter wedding at Ashton Gardens. Their wedding colors were midnight blue and silver. This beautiful combination was chosen not only for its winter wonderland feel, but mainly because Thomas is a Fort Worth police officer. The fact that Thomas is a Fort Worth police officer played a big role in the small details of the wedding decor. From the tiny handcuffs on Sabrina’s wedding garter to the police car and ambulance beautifully painted in exquisite detail on Sabrina’s wedding shoes, the whole wedding is saturated with the motto “protect and serve.” Sabrina and Thomas will protect and serve each other, just as Thomas protects and serves the community. Sabrina and Thomas are big hockey fans, so naturally, there was a post wedding celebration at the Dallas Stars game! If you look closely, you can see the Dallas Stars logo on the grooms cake! There was nothing cuter than seeing Sabrina and Thomas throw on Stars jersey over their wedding clothes and celebrate the big game right after they celebrated their love for one another! This winter wedding was definitely creative, elegant and fun! There’s just something about the white sparkles on Sabrina’s wedding dress that make her look like a snow queen! If you want to get married during the winter time this is definitely a great way to do it!

Wedding photos always have a touch of magic in them. They capture some of the most special moments of a new couple’s lives. But few wedding pictures truly capture the magic of the “First Look” shots.
What is the first look? Basically, the first look is a staged moment before the ceremony where the bride and groom see each other for the first time. Usually these pictures exclude friends and family, and occur either privately or at least a few feet away from everyone else. These pictures are all about the bride and groom seeing each other for the first time on their wedding day. They capture the intimacy, love, and passion between the couple.
Picture this. The groom is looking at the photographer as the bride begins to walk towards him. She’ll tap him on the shoulder, and he turns to see her. His faces captures the wonder at seeing his gorgeous bride for the first time, and her face shows her excitement and love for him.
Once these intimate pictures are finished, the photographer takes the traditional bride and groom portraits, then the group pictures of the bridal party and family.
Although some couples dislike the idea of seeing each other before the ceremony, most couples who have done it say that they are glad they did it this way because it allowed them to relax for the rest of the wedding. And most couples find that taking their pictures first does not take away from the magic of the bride’s appearance at the beginning of the ceremony.
Cailee and Sam both appreciate simplicity, and really wanted to provide a comfortable environment that felt like a beautiful family reunion. Well, they definitely succeeded! The wedding was relaxed, natural and inviting. Soft pinks, bright greens and touches of lace created a stylish and inviting environment. The small touch of French inspiration gave the whole event a uniquely romantic feel! Pies made by family members served as the groom’s cake, and the wedding cake was also made by family. Family was an important part of their big day. In fact, Cailee even wore her great grandmothers ring! Hickory Street Annex was the perfect venue choice for this couples special day.

Denae and Calvin had a stunning January wedding at Piazza in the Village! The inspiration for Denae an Calvin’s wedding came from Denae’s love of soft colors, simple pearls, fresh flowers, winter grays and the elegance of a beautiful chapel. Denae’s mother made the Bible cover that was used to transport the rings down the aisle. Fresh lavender was given to the guest’s at the entrance. What a beautiful winter wedding! The soft violet hues make this wedding simple, yet elegant. The bride’s beautiful hair and makeup was done by The Hair Bar, the delicious cake was made by Moonlight Cakes, and the wedding was completed with pristine floral arrangements done by Grace Britsch.

Engagements are such a pleasure shooting! I like that you get a “sneak peek” into the future. We were honored to be shooting a local athlete! Tyrone plays for our Dallas Cowboys! He may be tough on the field with many strengths, but we definitely found out his weakness: his fiance, Kelsey! These two love birds were so much fun capturing! Cannot wait for their big day next year!
