The Wilson wedding in December of 2020 was a sweet day I won’t soon forget! Addison and Leighton tied the know on December 10th, 2020. I admire them for being so laid back and getting married in such a crazy and unpredictable year! Addison and Leighton held their wedding at the Magnolia Grace Ranch in Leonard, Texas. This venue was perfect for them and photographed so beautifully! I love the wooded areas and incredible natural light in the reception hall. The Wilson wedding was intimate, with around 120 of their favorite people in attendance. I truly enjoy photographing intimate wedding days! Their color scheme of rust, olive green and tan was perfect for a winter wedding. They had so many unique and sweet details throughout their wedding day!
Addison and Leighton
The Wilsons met through Addison’s sister and Leighton’s friend. Leighton proposed to Addison in August of 2020 at his parents house with the whole family present. It is always fun to learn about how a couple got engaged! Addison loves to read and spend time with her family, while Leighton enjoys hunting and working out. Addison and Leighton are such a good match for each other! Their favorite thing to do is spend quality time together.
Addison chose a classic, form fitted gown for her wedding day. The silhouette and style of this dress are timeless. Paired with an elegant updo and a pearl necklace, she looked amazing! I think it is really cool when a dress fits a brides personal style so well. I also can’t get enough of the bridesmaids dresses she chose! Rust colored velvet gowns are a great contrast to her white dress. Velvet is a fabric that always photographs well, I love how it reflects light.
I can’t wait for all of my 2021 weddings! Reach out today to inquire about your wedding date for this year and next.
A Dallas bridal photography session at this stunning chapel was a dream come true! The high wooden beams throughout and the floor to ceiling windows are a huge bonus. The windows facing out to the woods really creates a surreal feeling in the chapel. Bringing the best of both worlds, nature and architecture. Soft greens behind a bride creates really pretty contrast in images. The architecture in chapels can really help bring some drama to bridal photography. I am especially fond of getting wide shots where the bride is centered in the shot.
There are so many benefits to booking a bridal session! I really enjoy when a bride wants to shoot her bridal session in the same venue that the wedding will be taking place. Booking a bridal photography session is a blessing to your photographer! They give us the chance to master our settings based on the venue before the wedding. I also really enjoy the consistent loo it brings to all of your wedding day related galleries.
Benefits of a bridal session
Having a bridal session is a great way to really cherish the moments you get to wear your wedding dress! The actual wedding day can go by so quickly, it is worth it to have an entire session dedicated to the dress of your dreams. Many little girls dream of their wedding dress and wonder what it will look like, it just isn’t fair to only wear it on one day. A bridal session can also be a great opportunity for a final hair and makeup trial before the big day. It is so helpful to be able to see the hair and makeup as it appears on camera ahead of time!
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!
