Jessica & Mark – Hotel Crescent Court Wedding

Jessica & Mark are such a wonderful couple and it was such an honor to document their gorgeous wedding, engagement, & bridal sessions. They met while they were both completing their accounting internships. How cool is that?! But the best part is they included their sweet puppies in their engagement session and even for a few portraits during their wedding! (And you know dogs make everything better!) You’ve got to see the sweet floral collar that Junior with Garden Gate Floral made! So adorable! The day was absolutely gorgeous and perfectly coordinated by Chelsea with Hitched Events.

Beth + Chad – Marie Gabrielle Restaurant and Gardens

There are so many reasons I’m thankful for being a Dallas based wedding photographer and one reason is for the unique and gorgeous wedding venues we have all over the DFW area. One of my many favorites is Marie Gabrielle Restaurant & Gardens which is a lovely garden situated 4 floors up between downtown & uptown. Their food is incredible, their staff is superb, and the views… So Much Pretty!! To top off this gorgeous wedding, Beth & Chad included a really cool handmade alter, stunning florals from Petals Couture, a soft blush Maggie Sottero wedding dress, and Mike Mahnich kept the dance floor packed all night long.

I absolutely adored getting to know Beth & Chad, as well as their wonderful friends & family members. They’re a delightful couple and it was an honor to document this monumental time in their lives. I wish them all the love & happiness possible!

Theresa + John – Poetry Garden Wedding in the Dallas Arboretum

This was one of the sweetest, intimate weddings that I’ve documented in quite a long time! I may or may not have teared up during the ceremony. 😉

Theresa & John were married this past Friday in the Poetry Garden at the Dallas Arboretum. Theresa wore a gorgeous blue dress and her hair and make up were done by the oh-so-talented Walter Fuentes. Their ceremony was perfectly officiated by Rev. Al Taylor with Love Notes Weddings. It was a pleasure documenting this special day for such a wonderful couple!

Paige & Chris – Art Deco Garden Wedding

Paige and Chris had a seriously gorgeous Art Deco garden wedding at the Aldredge House in Dallas, Texas! I’m head over heels in love with Paige’s Hafida wedding dress (by San Patrick from Lasting Bridal Couture) and her way-too-cool Betsy Johnson shoes. It was a special treat to get to work with Al Taylor with Love Notes (I love all their officiants!) and DJ Ryan Lee with Astounding Sounds. Cocktails & Caviar did absolutely lovely floral arrangements for my fantastic couple and the personalized olive oil bottles from Bella Vita were a unique (and awesome) gift for their guests.

Susan & Scott’s Gorgeous Garden Wedding

Holy Cinderella, Batman! Susan & Scott had one amazingly gorgeous garden wedding at the Arboretum in Dallas! I’m completely in LOVE her bridesmaid’s dresses, the mixture of stripes and chevron patterns for their tables, Susan’s amazing dress, and the flowers….! OMG! Ok, ok… I’ll let you just scroll down to see all this gorgeousness for yourself!
