Jillian + Josh // Marty Leonard Chapel

Does it get any more beautiful than Josh and Jillian's day?? These two met coincidentally, while on separate trips with friends to the Dominican Republic. God had a plan for their love, and a little thing like geography couldn't get in the way! It was love at first sight, which led to this beautiful joining of families. Their ceremony location holds a special place in my heart... it's where my husband and I said "I do" five years ago! Just seeing that building brings back so many wonderful memories.  We are so excited for Jillian and Josh and the memories they made this day, and the many memories that are to come!

Andrea + Patrick // Gleneagles Country Club

This day was so classically beautiful! From the ornate Christ the King church, to Andrea's stunning dress, the details of this day came together to paint a beautiful picture of their love.  We loved hearing Patrick's brother tell the story of how Patrick whisked Andrea away on a surprise trip to Argentina in order to propose.  Be still my heart!  Watch their love story here!

McKenzie + Landon // The White Sparrow Barn

Are you ready to shed some tears?? If not, you might not want to hit play!! This was our first time shooting at The White Sparrow Barn, and walking in to the ceremony space was like stepping in to a little piece of heaven on earth. It was so serene, calm and beautiful that it took my breath away! Add to that a stunning bride, and it made for gorgeous getting ready moments.  McKenzie and Landon decided to write their own vows, and the words they exchanged had us a little misty!  We also might have lost it a little during McKenzie's little sister and maid of honor's speech... Watch their trailer here and see for yourself! We dare you not to cry...

Felicia + Kyle // The Omni Hotel Fort Worth

Can we take a moment to enjoy this sweet couple??

Elisa + Beau // St. Patrick Cathedral

What a beautiful day with Elisa and Beau!! If you ask these two when they met, they each have different recollections.  They both know it was in high school, but they can't exactly pin down the date. However neither of them will ever forget their first date! When they reconnected after high school at TCU, they went on a run together around campus, and the rest is history.  Elisa and Beau were married in a beautiful Catholic mass at St. Patrick Cathedral, and celebrated their love with a reception at the Hurst Conference Center. It was a beautiful night for a beautiful couple. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Coleman!

Ashanti + Jerry // The Windsor at Hebron Park

This day absolutely took our breath away. The love that Ashanti and Jerry share was so beautiful and pure, and their wedding day was joyful from start to finish! We loved that their ceremony was officiated by Jerry's former track coach, and his groomsman were 'the treaitors'... the guys he ran against in track. Ashanti looked stunning in her Justin Alexander dress from Bridal Boutique, especially coming down that breathtaking staircase at The Windsor at Hebron Park.  This day was just perfect!  In the words of Jerry's best man, "When things are good, when things are bad, look at each other and say, 'Let's stay together'."

Hailey + Chris // St. Joseph Catholic Church

Fourth of July is over, but these two still have us seeing sparks!! Hailey and Christopher's day was a joyful celebration with family and friends that truly honored their love for each other and the Lord. We are #TeamChailey all the way! We loved seeing their relationship transform from high school sweethearts (who dated ten years!!) to husband and wife. Watch their trailer here!

Jillian + Stephen // La Cima Club

If Steve and Jillian's trailer doesn't put you in the mood to party this weekend, we don't know what will! This day was SO joyful from start to finish, and it's obvious in their film. Their reception included everything from a family acoustic singalong of "American Pie" to a rap performance from cousin Mike, AKA "Big Moose".  Top it all off with a performance of Bohemian Rhapsody played on pots and pans and that about sums up the night!! Watch all the fun in their highlight film here. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Schell!  May every day of your marriage be as fun-filled as the first!

Seth + Shelby // The Brooks at Weatherford

What a beautiful day at a beautiful venue with a beautiful couple!! Seth and Shelby are such a sweet pair, who met while studying at seminary.  Their day had a vintage, romantic feel, and we loved their adventurous spirit. This is the first time a bride asked me if she could have video of the couple running away (to which I answered "Heck yes!" and Immediately got my slow motion ready to go).

We love the symbolic gesture of washing each other's feet that these two chose for their ceremony. This expression of Christ's humility is a perfect example for marriage, and we loved witnessing it.  Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Williams!

Whitney + Ethan // Wildwood Inn

Happy Memorial Day!  We love the story of how the military brought Whitney and Ethan together. The two met in Afghanistan on Christmas Day in 2014. Whitney is an Air Force photojournalist and was covering a Christmas concert that Ethan (a dog handler in the Army) and his dog, Alex were attending. She snapped the perfect picture of Ethan (in a Santa hat) and Alex (in reindeer antlers), and the rest is history! We are so thankful this couple crossed our path, and loved sharing in their big day at the stunning Wildwood Inn.  Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Taylor!

Laura + Phil // Chapel at Ana Villa

Wow! Have you seen a more beautiful couple?? Laura and Phil chose the beautiful Chapel at Ana Villa for their day.  It was our second weekend in a row shooting here, and it was the perfect setting for their elegant affair!

What stood out to us about Laura and Phil was the deep impact that family has had on their lives and their relationship together.  We love seeing the sweet moments between this couple and their parents, and the obvious way that a lifetime of love has been an example for them to follow as they begin their new journey together.  Watch their trailer here for all the feels, and keep the tissues on hand!

Jessalyn + Alex // St. Catherine's at Bell Gable

Good grief guys.  Even as I write this post, I have tears in my eyes.  Tears of joy, gratitude, and of the sheer amazement at God's goodness!! We met Alex through our small group at church, where he has been the leader for the past four years. To say he's like family wouldn't be true; he is family.  When I think back on the countless times we sat around our living room, sharing stories both of victory and sorrow, I think of the many times I prayed for this day for him. I iprayed for a woman that would be a partner in life and a helper fit. The Lord was so faithful in bringing him Jessalyn! 

These two were married in a beautiful intimate ceremony at St. Catherine's at Bell Gable in Fayetteville, Arkansas.   It was a stormy morning, but the clouds parted just in time to give us a gorgeous day.  We loved witnessing the love these two have for each other, and you will too. Watch their sneak peek here!

David + Mariah // Chapel at Ana Villa

Wow, what a beautiful wedding! Mariah and David had so many special touches throughout their day.  From the live music to the beautiful flowers, each detail was thoughtfully planned and beautifully executed.  This was our first time shooting at The Chapel at Ana Villa and we loved the beautiful lighting throughout the chapel.  Enjoy their trailer here!

Clayton + Cassidy // The Retreat Country Club

Clayton and Cassidy were a joy to work with!  It all started when Cassidy had to give away her chocolate lab, who she wasn't ready to part with.  Clayton was the one to come take it off her hands, and the two became inseparable. We love their precious story and had such a good time sharing this day with them, as their two sweet families became one. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Chenault!

Kelsey + Colin / St. Ann's Catholic Parish

This day was so precious! Kelsey and Colin had such a sweet spirit, and obvious love for each other.   I love the perfect mixture of class and country that these two incorporated in to their day.  From their beautiful Catholic mass ceremony to their party-all-night reception at Uncle Bucks, every detail of this day fit Kelsey and Colin perfectly! These two met while in college, and their chance meeting turned in to a romance that is reminiscent of a fairy tale.  While Beauty and the Beast may seem like an odd comparison, we love the way their priest incorporated the story in to the service.  Watch their trailer here, and be sure to watch in HD! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Campbell!

Breanna + Spencer // Lake Tyler Petroleum Club

That sunset y'all! That's what Texas is all about, and it was a beautiful backdrop for Breanna and Spencer's big day!  These two were so fun to work with and brought us to Tyler for our first East Texas Wedding.

I love the story of how these two met! Both athletes at UT Tyler, Spencer first spotted Breanna on the volleyball court, and knew he had to meet her.  Hear their story and witness their beautifulday in this trailer!

Lauren + Peter // Ant Street Inn

Brenham, Texas. Home to Bluebell, bluebonnets, and beautiful newlyweds Lauren and Peter!  When Lauren and Peter invited us that share in their day at The Ant Street Inn, we were so excited! It was an opportunity to capture their love while also enjoying a weekend away from the city with my husband!

As Lauren's sister mentions in their video, there are many different types of love stories.  What I loved about Lauren and Peter's day was the way that it showcased all of these love stories! Stories from every season of life, and each one as beautiful as the last. 

These two share so much love for each other, and for a gracious God who brought them together. We had such a great time telling their love story, and know you'll love watching it!

 

Briana + Thomas // Classic Oaks Ranch

A beautiful day, a picturesque setting, a stunning bride and... a llama? Of course. Because Briana and Thomas are just. that. fun. We loved being a part of this day!!

Briana and Thomas chose Classic Oaks Ranch in Mansfield for their day.  The ranch was filled with fun animals, but a special guest was brought in specifically for Briana and Thomas. These two were engaged in Machu Picchu and fell in love with llamas on their trip! They had Lenny the Llama join them on their special day, and he even walked the aisle. This was a last minute decision that I wasn't expecting, and I had to work hard to keep from falling over laughing. Totally made my day!

Thomas and Briana's wedding had a beautiful boho vive that was executed perfectly by their planner Lucia Bitnar at Foster Blue!  From their stunning naked cakes by Crème De La Crème bakery, to their intricate and beautiful florals from Justine’s Flowers, every detail was a dream.

Though their wedding was filled with all things pretty, the most beautiful thing about this couple was their love for each other, and their desire to honor God.   Their ceremony was a celebration of that love, and a testimony of the Lord's goodness in their lives. We are thrilled for the new Mr. and Mrs. Damrwow!
