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!

Maggie’s bridals at Avalon Legacy Ranch

Maggie married the love of her life on March 31, 2018 so I am able to share some of her bridals now ūüôā

We were supposed to shoot at her venue but due to bad weather that day we had to quickly come up with an indoor venue so I reached out to my friend at Avalon Legacy Ranch. She loves books, what better place than Avalon’s library! During the session, a ladybug landed on her dress so I had to get a photo!

Maggie is another beautiful bride!

Katy & Dennis – March 29, 2018 at The Springs Rockwall

Katy and Dennis were married at The Springs Event Venue in Rockwall, TX.

Dennis and Katy grew up in the small towns of Princeton and Farmersville and went to rival high schools. Dennis was very active in sports and dance and Katy was involved in cheerleading and dance. They had never met until a mutual friend suggested that they had similar interests. Once their paths crossed  junior year of high school, the rest was history! They moved to Los Angeles after graduation and have been pursuing the fitness and entertainment industry ever since. Their dance background plays a huge role in how they met and they continue to share that passion with each other. They also enjoy travel and adventure, and they have exciting things planned for their future together. March 29th, 2018 will be their 5th anniversary.

Dennis proposed to Katy on Christmas Eve in 2016, he surprised her along with friends and family on her way home from the airport for the holidays. A link to the proposal video is attached below.

Katy’s bridals at the Dallas Arboretum

I can finally show off Katy’s gorgeous bridals we did at the Dallas Arboretum¬†a couple of months ago. She was stunning in her gown from Leann’s Bridal and her mother’s original veil. The beautiful bouquet from¬†Petals & Pearls Unique Designs¬†complimented everything so nicely.

Katy & Dennis were married last night at The Springs Venue in Terrell, TX

Emily & Miles tied the knot on March 11, 2018!

Emily & Miles are the sweetest couple but they also have a very comic side.

The ceremony was held at the gorgeous Cross of Christ Lutheran Church with reception at The Manderely both located in DeSoto, TX. I was in love with the colors she chose for her bridesmaids dresses and the way the beautiful bouquets tied in so nicely. I spotted some purple trees at the venue and was able to come up with some photo ideas that turned out just beautiful.

It was such a great day and evening, everything was wonderful down to the catering, decor and even the adorable little cupcakes. Take a look at the previews below ~

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/

Ashley & Kirk – November 17, 2017 wedding previews

How they met ~

Kirk and Ashley met on a dating app back in May of 2013. They talked for just a day or two before Ashley suggested to grab drinks on a Friday night after work. Kirk was living in Garland, and Ashley in Denton, so the couple met halfway at BJ’s Brewhouse in Lewisville, Texas. At the time, Kirk was working out constantly and was ready for his third dinner at 10pm, while Ashley was not really hungry. Kirk suggested an appetizer so Ashley picked spinach and artichoke dip which was her favorite. Kirk on the other hand was not a fan of the dip, but ended up eating the whole thing when Ashley had just one bite. Both were nervous, but talked until they were kicked out of the restaurant at closing. The couple then sat on the curb outside the restaurant talking for hours until the sun started to rise. The rest is history…

The proposal ~

It was December 16, 2016. Kirk took Ashley to Urban Crust, one of the first places they went to after moving to Plano. The couple got their favorite meals, along with a nice bottle of wine. After dinner the couple headed to the jeep. Kirk planned to just put the food in the jeep to then propose by the downtown Plano Christmas tree. This was not expressed to Ashley, so of course she just hopped in the jeep. Frustrated, Kirk abruptly said, “get out.” Ashley was very confused and asked why. Kirk said since we took a picture our first year here, with the tree, we needed to this year. Ashley agreed, so the couple headed to the large Christmas tree. Once they got to the tree, Kirk got down on one knee, having Ashley surprised he knelt down on the wet concrete. Using her full name, Kirk asked Ashley to marry him. Ashley immediately said yes.

Breathtaking wedding, it was simply beautiful from start to finish!
