Emiliano & Cheryl’s wedding previews

Emiliano & Cheryl were married over the weekend at Piazza in the Village. The details of the day were just stunning, I loved how they incorporated his love of the Dallas Cowboys from the cake down to his socks, even the flower girl wore DCC earrings!

So much color and so much fun from beginning to end. Both families genuinely adore the other and you can see these two were meant to be together. I took my favorite images of the day from the getting ready photos to the send off just as if you were there.

Maggie & Matt’s wedding previews – March 31, 2018

Maggie and Matt’s Story

Matt and Maggie met in 2013. They had their first date at Giuseppe’s in Denton and talked until the restaurant closed. They didn’t talk for awhile after that, but eventually they found each other again and the rest is history! They ended up spending a lot of time with each other and enjoy hiking, reading and relaxing together. In the summer of 2015, they adopted a weenie dog named Sawyer to serve as a little brother to Maggie’s pup, Hector. They moved in together in the fall of 2015 and decided to buy a house in 2017. Now they’re beginning their happily-ever-after.
The Proposal

On a family vacation to New Jersey with Maggie’s extended family, Matt decided to pop the question under the fireworks on the 4th of July. The beach, family time, and now a fiance, it was a vacation to remember!

Mykie & Samantha’s very unique LGBT wedding at the The Quixotic World

I have shot many sessions in Deep Ellum over the years from senior portraits to couples, Modeling, etc, and I always stop at this building because I love the red and black on the outside for my sessions. I have always wondered what they have done to the inside since the name change, back in the 90’s I would see bands play there.

I was so excited when I booked this LGBT wedding and on NYE!! (During the afternoon though), however, when my 2nd shooter and I arrived it was SNOWING!!!! We walked in from such a bright and freezing situation outside to a dark and almost Willie Wonka like scene inside, it was awesome! I was in photography heaven, some photographers may have walked in and been in panic mode because if you do not know how to shoot in low light and I mean almost dark, well then you are in trouble. I have years of experience so I was not worried, I was very excited!

Here are some of my favorites from the ceremony and reception, I absolutely love how this venue looks now and the creative touch the brides added. This venue holds all types of events, you really need to check them out. https://www.thequixoticworld.com/dallasweddingvenue/

A Cinderella birthday Party!

“A dream is a wish your heart makes
When you’re fast asleep
In dreams you lose your heartaches
Whatever you wish for, you keep

Have faith in your dreams and someday
Your rainbow will come smiling through
No matter how your heart is grieving
If you keep on believing
The dream that you wish will come true”
