Andrea & Christopher’s wedding previews

A note from the bride:

Chris and I met in college at UT-Arlington in 2008. We had mutual friends who constantly tried to set us up on a blind date. We dated in 2009 but decided to stay friends. My friends would always tell me “You’re going to end up together, you guys are going to get married.” We were in and out of each other’s lives for 6 maybe 7 years before we decided to go on a date again. It was like best friends meeting up for dinner, after that is history. We dated for 3 years before he finally proposed!
Proposal: I had been dying to take a trip somewhere and decided on Chicago in May of 2018. We had our trip booked and we were ready to go. Within the first few hours there I was already irritated with him. He was being so grumpy and said I was constantly lingering over him. To my defense, the hotel room was small and I had nowhere else to go. (Little did I know he was trying to get the ring out of his bag to put in his pocket.) We walked around the city for a few hours and decided to go see Cloud Gate aka “The Bean” in millennium park. I had him take a picture of me alone and then asked him to jump in with me. He gave a random stranger his phone and I guess secretly told him he was about to propose. As he walked up to me the stranger yelled out “Do you want me to take a photo or a video?” I was thinking in my head, “this guy must be an iPhone user, not a droid user.” The next minute I know Chris is on the ground and I’m thinking what are you doing?! But there it was, a pretty box with a shiny ring! I didn’t even hear him say a word, I just saw the ring and was like, “Are you serious?” He knelt there patiently waiting for me to say something. Before I could say a word, I grabbed the ring out of the box and put it on my finger. The perfect fit! I then hear someone yell in the crowd “What did she say?” That’s when I realized what was really happening.

Molly & Diego’s wedding previews

A note from the bride:

We met in Chile in August of 2012. It was love at first site. We fell hard and fast for a few months until Molly’s time in Chile was finished. Although we knew it was something special, it did not seem realistic to be together, when we lived 1000s of miles away. In December 2013, Molly came for Christmas in Chile, in this time we started our relationship where we left it. This is when we found a love we could not break. We stayed together for 8 months while living in different countries. We talked on the phone for hours, watched movies together in Skype, and dreamed of what a future together would be like in the same place. In these 8 months we learned how to trust, communicate, and encourage each other while being so far apart. In August 2014, we finally were able to start a life in Chile. While living in Chile we became family. We did everything together, we worked, played, we traveled. We spent every moment with friends or family. We were always growing and learning about life. Here we are in 2018, ready to commit to a relationship that will last a lifetime. And we want all of the people who have supported us from the beginning.
The venue was gorgeous 20s Historic Mini Mansion in Wylie, I just loved everything about this place! I was able o capture some wonderful bridal and couple portraits using the different rooms within the house.
