Emily & Van – 8-17-19

A note from the bride:

We met at a food and wine festival on May 2, 2014. We went on our first date one week later and have been together ever since. Van proposed on a family vacation in traverse City Michigan. He took me to the top of a lighthouse for the proposal. We had lunch at a super cute, small cottage restaurant just the two of us following the engagement. He had the engagement planned for months prior and I thought he was never going to propose! It was a HUGE surprise!

This wedding was so beautiful with lots of fun! These are only SOME of the shots from the big day!!

Courtney & Michael’s wedding June 29, 2019

This wedding was so beautiful from start to finish! The day began extremely hot, the kind of heat that when you step outside you can barely breathe, but as the ceremony began, storm clouds began to roll in and you could hear thunder in the distance, the weather cooled off, then just as we started bridal party photos, the wind picked up, and you could see lightening strikes way off in the background, clouds were getting darker, but I kept shooting and they were all for it! They were so much fun to work with, everyone was.

Due to the weather, there was a bad accident on the highway coming in, so the minister didn’t make it until the middle of the ceremony, so the mother of the groom officiated the first half of the wedding and it was simply beautiful!

Jordyn & Michael’s wedding blog – 6-8-19

A note from the bride ~

Michael and I met our Freshman year of high school at Jenks High School. We met in our biology class and started talking in class and then it went from there!

Michael took me to his families land, we call it the farm, on the opening day of hunting season (October 1st) in 2017. He went out that morning to go hunting and when he came back he asked if I wanted to go for a ride to the waterfall (a place on the land that is very pretty and is a waterfall when there is water running). We went to the waterfall and that is when he got down on one knee and asked me to marry him!!

Madison & Blake – 6-2-19

A note from the bride ~

My fiance and I met our first semester at UNT in Fall of 2013. We both lived at West hall on campus. Blake only lived at the hall and went to UNT for one semester and then joined the army in 2014. I almost did not get to attended UNT at the time depending on financial aid. Lucky for us it was in God’s will for our paths to cross when they did. We became acquantices at the time who said hello and carried on small talk while we both lived at West hall. We added each other on social media that same year. Once he left for the army we lost touch for about a year. Once some time had passed we started talking again via social media in fall 2014/spring 2015. We kept in touch for 2 years. We talked almost every day, at times we went without talking for a month or so here and there but majority of the time we had some form of communication daily while he was stationed in Hawaii for the remainder of his time in the army. We were still just acquaintances but we were somehow a little more because we knew each other’s daily routines, friend groups, etc. While we were thousands of miles away, we always talked about me visiting him in Hawaii but never actually got to make that happen (got close once but didn’t pan out). We also talked about showing each other our favorite spots, hanging out once he got home, and what the future looked like for each of us individually (but also prying to see if the other fit into our life plan, hoping this would be it). Once he returned home in fall 2017 he asked me on a date (without telling me where we were going- so natrually I freak out and don’t know what to wear). He took me to the drive in movies that night in Fort Worth where we had our first official date and hoping it would be a movie ending for us
instead of an awkward disaster. Lucky for us it was in God’s will again for that to be our last first date.
The proposal was exactly one year after our first date at the exact same location, the drive in movies in Fort Worth. We had already planned on going back for our one year date but little did I know it was the day he asked my father for his blessing and then carried on to ask me to be his wife. That night he took me to our favorite sushi place before the movies. We found our spot for the movie and he surprised me with roses and chocolate covered strawberries (and I thought that was the big surprise for the night). We knew we wanted to take a picture in front of the movie screen in between the double feature. So after the first movie he asked the “strangers” next to us to take our picture. As we were taking it I noticed he wouldn’t stop staring at me so I asked if he was ever going to look at the camera, to my surprise he said no. Instead he continued to say the sweetest words. He would always joke about getting engaged in 10 years so he mentioned how he just couldn’t wait another day and got down on one knee!!! We spent the whole second movie in the truck face timing all of our family!

Emily & VJ’s wedding previews – 5-26-19

A note from the bride:

We met through a mutual best friend (best man) in college. We were friends for a long time, dating other people and living life, until we happened to both be single and the three of us (bride, groom, and best man) all moved in together and a relationship blossomed from there.

One night at home, after a busy schedule of trips and vacations, we picked up take out and got in our comfy house clothes and came home for a night in to unwind together. While I was putting together plates for us, chattering away, VJ slipped out, retrieved the ring, and when I turned around he was down on his knee and he asked me to marry him and share a lifetime of happy nights at home together. It was perfect because I had accidentally learned that he was ring shopping and was highly suspicious on all of our trips and outings, and I hate having all eyes on me. I was scared of some kind of big public setting, and he caught me completely and sincerely by surprised, and created the perfect comfortable, safe, and private space for such a special moment.

Carla & Robert’s wedding preview blog

Carla & Robert have been together for 10 years. The day of the wedding, it was raining so hard with strong winds, we thought it would never stop. They really wanted their ceremony overlooking the water at Lake Ray Hubbard. They are always on the lake so what better setting than The Landing at Chandlers.

Just before the ceremony, the rain and wind stopped and the sun began peaking through the clouds. It was beautiful. There were so many funny moments during this wedding, some of the most fun and crazy people to be around. I have known them and their family for a while now. It took me a while to pick and choose the ones I wanted to edit for this preview blog, so many special moments to tell their day.

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.
