From the bride:
We met through my father; we joke that he sold me off to David. My dad was military and had to relocate. He trusted David, a guy I’ve never met, to make sure I was doing fine and if i ever needed anything, he would then help. Eventually I asked him out on our first 3 dates. Great job, dad! Haha
We planned the wedding on our own with the help of friends and family. Kudos to wedding planners, this is the most stressful job ever.
Everything turned out better than expected honestly! Though it was 1000 degrees outside, none of us passed out, so that’s a win in our book!

Lori & Bert’s brunch wedding previews at the Orion Ballroom

From the couple:

Valentines Day 2015, we met at Whiskey Cake and that’s where Olive it began. He ended up buying me lunch and marveled at how I finished my salmon but also talked the entire time. It didn’t feel like a first date, it was completely effortless and I walked away that day knowing in my gut that I had just met my husband.

Thankfully the feeling was mutual and we’ve been together ever since. We bonded with our mutual love of paranormal television shows, good food, corny humor and our undying devotion to our children. We may be blended but the love in our little family is as pure as it gets. We are the luckiest.

In the photos you will notice a precious little baby, the dress she is wearing was Lori’s. How sweet is that??

John & Cristina’s engagement sneak peeks

It was like straight out of the movie Forrest Gump…

Jenny Curran: Why are you so good to me?
Forrest Gump: You’re my girl!
Jenny Curran: [pause] I’ll always be your girl.

Venie – Arlington Hall at Lee Park

From the couple:

John and I met 5 years ago, November 2012. At the time I was going to college in Richmond, VA but my parents were living in Texas. I was home on thanksgiving break for a total of 3 days and John and I met during that visit home. We actually met while temporarily working at Victoria’s Secret, were folding yoga pants in the stock room, ha!! I Facebook creeped John the night we met, exchanged phone numbers via Facebook and the rest is history….

John proposed 4 years later on Christmas Eve surrounded by our parents, his grandmother, sister and nephew. He was home on a 2 week leave from the Marine Corps training pipeline which lasted a total of 8 months.

Our wedding is August 26, 2017 at the Piazza in the Village in Colleyville, TX. This was the first venue we ever visited and immediately fell in love with the it upon entering the Chapel. At Last by Etta James was playing and I got tears in my eyes. After our tour at the Piazza they rang the wedding bells from the venue’s tower and knew in that moment that we had to get married there! Our wedding will incorporate a few Romanian traditions, as my side of the family including myself is from Romania!

We can’t wait for our #bigfatromericanwedding !!

 

 

Carrie’s bridals at the Castle!

Carrie & Willis said “I do” on July 15, 2017 in Mexico, ME.

I was referred to the groom via Facebook and when Carrie called to schedule her bridals she was interested in a more elegant and classy style, on top of some stairs, in front of double doors, or in a field. She’s from East Texas and just recently moved local so she wasn’t familiar with anything around. I knew the perfect venue right away, made a phone call and set up a date/time.

She was just stunning. These are just some of our favorites from the session in May!

Venue – The Castle at Rockwall
Dress – Terry Costa
Makeup – The Mac Store
Bouquet – Bride’s mother
Jewelry – Bride’s Grandmother’s

As I learned more about her, I was so intrigued! She and her twin sister have been professional body builders for some time. Check out this video below from 2015, seriously impressive! Willis was also into body building for a while and competitions.

From the couple ~

Wilson family session in Deep Ellum

Mother of three session in Deep Ellum was such a fun session but a hot one! I had them follow me in their car to each of my favorite murals so we wouldn’t have to be in the heat too long each time.

This session was very important to mom so I wanted to be sure and make it very fun and special for them. She had found me through hashtags on Instagram when researching Deep Ellum photography which I found very cool!

Here are just a few of my faves 🙂
