The Ayala Wedding | Oak Water Ranch | Granbury, Tx

 

It was the perfect October day for a wedding at the gorgeous Oak Water Ranch in Granbury, Tx. I was so excited that the day had finally come for Alexis and Edric, the sweetest couple imaginable. I arrived early to scope out the place and saw all of the wonderful engagement photos we took together back in January displayed on every table in the room. You can see that adorable session here actually! We had a blast on that super cold morning.

All of the flowers, decorations, and tiny details were perfect. The greens and reds were beautiful together. The bouquet…to die for! And OMG, that DRESS! (Alexis, you were gorgeous).

The wedding went off without a hitch, minus some crazy winds earlier in the day. From the first look to the last dance. The ceremony was traditional but sweet and afterwards everyone had so much fun partying the night away under the stars. The perfect day. Congratulations you to the new Mr. and Mrs. Ayala! It was such an honor to play a small part of your love story!

Here are some of my favorite moments from that day…

The Talamantes Wedding | Cross Creek Ranch | Plano, Tx

I’ve been wanting to blog this amazing Cinco de Mayo wedding since I shot it and I’m FINALLY doing it y’all!

Cue the Rocky music you guys because it is happening! Here we go!

This wedding was planned in 5 short months and was nothing short of gorgeous. Cinco de Mayo is already a colorful holiday and the way Meagan planned it all was perfect. BBQ food truck. Pan dulce bar. A bridal suite I wanted to steal and put in my backyard for mommy getaways. It was the best day.

I watched all the joy from family and friends spill out everywhere I wandered. The bridal party laughing about their bare feet. The groomsmen taking shots and goofing off with the groom, David. Everyone was so happy that Noah’s mommy and daddy were becoming man and wife. They would officially be the Talamantes family.

It was such a joy and a pleasure to be a part  of a beautiful day with these two love birds and their perfect little family. I wish you two all the world’s happiness on your new adventure in life!

Here are some of my favorite shots of the Talamantes wedding!

The Dollar Wedding | Historic 512 | Fort Worth, Tx

Would you believe it all started at a Buffalo Wild Wings? Not really where fairy tales usually begin but this one did. One boy, two twin boys, a Time Square engagement later and here we are. Chelsea and Scott’s wedding day!

It was shaping up to be a beautiful April Sunday at the Historic 512 in Downtown Fort Worth. Chelsea and her bridesmaids were finishing their last minute touch ups. Scott was hanging out with the guys, including their three little guys, Maddok, Hatton, and Maxxon. Then came time for the dress, it was a beautiful mermaid gown with intricate lace detail and a high neck. It was perfection on her. I still remembered every detail from our bridal session a couple of months before. I watched as Chelsea floated around the room helping all of her girls get ready. Eyeliner. Hair. Lipstick. Even doing her own.

 

While Scott and the boys had some traditions of there own to share…

 

In the middle of the wedding party photos, Scott and Chelsea took a moment together to just be. To say hello. To take in the day that they become a family. It was probably the sweetest moment I’ve ever witness at a wedding. Sometimes a little breather is needed during the craziness to breath together.

 

And before we knew it, it was time to walk…

Thank you so much to Chelsea and Scott for choosing me to capture this special day for you. It was gorgeous, so full of wonderful memories, and joy. I’m so glad that I got to be a part of it all. Congratulations to the new Dollar family!
