The Flores Fort Worth Wedding

The flores Fort Worth wedding

The Flores Fort Worth wedding at Four Eleven wedding Venue was one for the books! I really enjoy shooting at this venue as it is perfect for couples who want a one stop shop for their big day. Four Eleven has space for the ceremony and reception all in one. This venue has a unique vibe that couples and vendors alike fall in love with.

Christopher and Desiree

Christopher and Desiree got engaged in Rome, Italy in December of 2018. Talk about an absolute dream proposal! Desiree had been learning Italian prior to their Italy trip, so Christopher knew this would be a memorable place to ask her to be his forever. Christopher and Desiree had been out sightseeing and after getting a bit carried away wine tasting, headed to a romantic dinner. Christopher had placed coasters on the table that said “Desiree will you marry me!” in Italian! I think their proposal story is just the cutest, what a creative move on Christopher’s part!

Desiree and Christopher love soccer, true crime, Scotch, bowling, breweries and traveling together. I love that they are a couple that shares their passions with each other! This close bond is obvious to everyone around them and makes them such an easy couple to love.

For their wedding day, they chose a color scheme of black and navy with gold accents. Such a unique and stunning combination of colors for their decor! It is fun for me when I get to document a wedding day with so many special details. One of my favorite details from the Flores wedding are Desiree sparkly wedding shoes! These shoes were such a playful touch and not to mention so much more comfortable than traditional heels. I also really loved the embroidered handkerchief with their initials and wedding date.

Desiree and Christopher did a phenomenal job making their wedding day one to remember!

Mrs. Fender’s Bridal Session

Rosewood Mansion at Turtle Creek Bridals

Mrs. Fender’s bridal session took place at Rosewood Mansion at Turtle Creek in Dallas. The Rosewood Mansion is a breathtaking space with incredible floor to ceiling windows, and timeless charm. With a huge variety of areas to take photos, from gorgeous hallways to the outdoor spaces, Mrs. Fender’s bridal session was a photographers dream come true! The mansion was an amazing spot for Sara’s bridal session to take place, she radiates classic beauty and is the sweetest southern belle. With her simple and stunning bridal gown, Sara looked like an old Hollywood movie star in her wedding dress. I couldn’t think of a more fitting venue for Sara’s bridal session and wedding. I have to admit, I felt a little under dressed showing up in my normal photographer attire of leggings and nikes haha!

The proposal

I love learning about my couples and how they got engaged! Sara and Nick’s engagement story is a cute one! Nick proposed to Sara at Branch and Bird in Downtown Fort Worth in late June of 2019. The proposal itself wasn’t a surprise, but the timing of it was! Sara had planned to have a group date night at Bass Hall with her friends, where vendors were to be serving all kinds of unlimited desserts. Nick asked Sara out to get appetizers before her friend date, and when it was just about time for them to leave the restaurant, Nick asked Sara to go check out the views. Branch and Bird is on the 12th floor of Frost Tower in downtown Fort Worth, so there are so great views! Nick then knelt down on one knee and asked the question! Sara said yes, and she told me she knew she would be happy when it happened, but had no idea the extent of the joy that she would feel!

I just love their proposal story, it fits them and you can tell how much they adore each other. I cannot wait to share more about Sara and Nick’s love story when I post their wedding blog soon!
