Kelsea + Joe // Heart of the Ranch

Valentine's Day might be over, but this couple still has us all 😍😍😍.  Kelsea and Joe's day was nothing short of spectacular and capturing it was such a joy for us.  Y'all, I knew I loved Kelsea from our first meeting.  About ten minutes after our meeting was scheduled, I saw a dreaded text message come through: "Hi Charity! Are we still meeting today?" Cue stomach drop.  I sat with my family in a restaurant eating Sunday brunch at the very moment I was supposed to be meeting Kelsea for coffee.  I NEVER forget a meeting, and y'all... I just totally forgot.  There was no excuse, other than I forgot to set an alarm, and went about my Sunday afternoon like usual. Kelsea waited for me to hightail it over to Avoca Coffee, and was so gracious and kind about the whole thing! I'm so thankful that she stuck with me and gave us the opportunity to share this day with them. It was truly magical! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Karol!  #KeepingUpWithTheKarols #DFWweddingvideo

Whitney + Dakota // The Brooks at Weatherford

We love this couple!! Whitney and Dakota made us laugh and cry (sometimes at the same time) and every detail of their day was beautifully planned and executed.  I've been waiting for the perfect dance floor footage to use Imagine Dragon's song "Thunder" with, and this was definitely that moment! We LOVED being a part of this one... #TheFutureIsBright for these two!  Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Bright!

Tori + Kaleb // The Brooks at Weatherford

Tori and Kaleb are the definition of joy, and their day was the type of celebration that just puts a smile on your face! The Brooks at Weatherford was the perfect setting for their joining of families, and we loved being the ones to capture it. Tori's Aunt and Uncle are actually the owners of The Brooks, so it was especially meaningful that this was where they chose to spend their first day of forever, and memories were made that will last a lifetime! Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Allison, here's to many years of #AllisoninWonderland! #DFWweddingvideo

Jessica + Cody // Lost Oak Winery

I knew I loved Jessica and Cody the moment I met them. They're the kind of couple that have infectious personalities, and you can't help but to catch their joy.  They also picked one of my favorite places to share their first day as a married couple! I grew up in Burleson, Texas and have been going to Lost Oak Winery for years.  It's changed so much over the years, and the addition of their beautiful wedding space made it the perfect setting for these wine lovers to say "I do." I also was so excited to find that the song Jessica walked down the aisle to was available for license. It fit perfectly as the soundtrack to their love story! Watch their trailer here (and be sure to watch in HD!).

Brittany + TJ // The Four Seasons

Ten years of TJ and Brittany. Ten years of different schools, different cities, different states... Now Brittany and TJ start a lifetime as Mr. and Mrs. Millweard! This was one of the most touching days we have ever had the honor of being a part of.  TJ and Brittany's family and friends spoke for over an hour at the rehearsal dinner of the love that these two have for each other, and all of those around them. We have a feeling they could have talked all night if given the chance! This couple is truly special and we loved capturing their day! Watch their trailer here (and be sure to watch in HD!).

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!
