I cannot believe it has been a year since we were celebrating this wedding at the Crescent Hotel. We got to work with so many great vendors on this wedding. Kelly and Meaghan at Sweet Pea Events handled all of the planning. Di Fiori had phenominal floral designs. Roman Video Productions documented the whole thing on film. Glenn Roush provided entertainment and lighting. Averi Blackmon Photography graciously provided the photos showcased below.
Yesterday I posted photos from Daniel and Angela’s wedding ceremony. They were married on October 7th and hosted their ceremony and reception at the Trinity River Audubon Center in Dallas. Special thanks to Chelsea and Mac McGowan at McGowan Images for sharing these gorgeous photos. We also worked with J Christopher Films on this wedding and will post the teaser video tomorrow.
The event space has a view of the wetlands and reservoir outside.
Daniel & Angela
Trinity River Audubon Center at night.
Once the sun sets, a little bit of uplighting makes the room pop.
First dance as husband and wife.
The bestman toast was a riot.
How sweet it is.
The father-daughter dance was a loving embrace.
Then it was time to cut loose.
Pictures are worth atleast a thousand words.
The ladies wanted the bouquet!
Flutterfetti may confuse your HD TV whenever it comes down on the Super Bowl Champions, but it does not confuse a photographers lens.

Earlier we posted pictures from Chad and Tara’s New Years Eve wedding ceremony at the gallery connected to the Joule Hotel in downtown Dallas. Afterwards, they came back to the hotel ballroom to celebrate their love and ring in 2012. This was the last wedding at the Joule before the space was closed for a major renovation that will see the hotel grow its meeting space significantly and add some spaces that are sure to change the landscape of Dallas weddings.
Chris at Ivey Photography was kind enough to share some images of the evening that really capture how fun, energetic, and beautiful this wedding was from top to bottom. To see more photos from this wedding check out the Ivey Photography blog.
There was a ton of energy downtown already because of NYE.
We added purple uplighting to the ballroom.
Chad’s best friend and co-best man, David, sang a first dance that he and Chad had written together. Talk about having everyone’s undivided attention to each word.
I am glad Chris captured this photo because there are not words to describe the emotions and love that go with your new husband writing a song for you.
Some hilarious toasting.
The parent dances were a little emotional because Chad and Tara moved to Singapore right after the wedding for Chad’s job.
The Texas Tech Betas in attendance made sure that Chad experienced passing the ‘loving cup’ even if they had to improvise with a bottle of champagne.
Then it was time to party…
And the crowd was ready.
A little bit softer now.
Full shot of the dance floor.
Tara and Chad owned the dance floor.
We did sparklers at midnight in lieu of a send off, because this group wanted to party until LATE into the night.
Chad and Tara were married on New Years Eve at the art gallery connected to the Joule Hotel in downtown Dallas. For her ceremony, we provided completely hidden sound and some well placed lighting to make the space really pop. For ceremonies, it is amazing what just a couple of well placed uplights will add for the photographer, videographer, and guests.
Here are a few images from Chris at Ivey Photography. Chris and his team were so inconspicuous in a space that is not small, but was packed with friends and family who were there to celebrate. To see more photos from this wedding check out the Ivey Photography blog or if you want to see Tara’s bridals check out this post.
Notice the uplights are subtle but add a definite splash of color.
Both of Tara’s parents walked her down the aisle.
Look how stunning Tara looks in this candid.
Different angle. Different setting on the camera and the uplights create a completely different photo.
They had just been declared “Mr. & Mrs. Awesome” (no really)
Post ceremony portraits.
Downtown checking out the lights. (check out the reception blog post)
Shameless plug for the Joule but also a great shot of the energy downtown on NYE.
I had the privilege of providing entertainment and uplighting for Allie and Richard’s wedding reception at the Rosewood Crescent Club Ballroom. Hannah from DFW Events worked with Allie and her mother Tilly to put together an unforgettable night. Special thanks to Michelle Peyronet from Peyronet Photography for sharing these amazing pictures.
Beautiful sunset view. (I can see Jennifer’s office)
Russ & Allie’s share a special father-daughter dance.
Allie & Richard made these fun custom table numbers.
RRichard teaches kindergarten in Kansas City. The kids in his class wrote notes for him and Allie.
I love the champagne/amber uplighting.
The Crescent Club chefs created this beautiful cake.
Closer view of the cake topper.

Time to dance.

Jenn and Jordan hosted their reception in the pavilion of the beautiful Four Seasons Resort & Spa of Dallas. Special thanks to Katy Taylor and all of the Four Seasons staff for being such amazing hosts . Katie Lamb and Jenn knew each other from Baylor, so Katie made the trip up from Houston. To see more pics from this wedding, check out Katie’s blog.
Jordan and Jenn picked out custom songs for each couple, and the wedding party did not disappoint. They had a blast and got everyone laughing (and cheering).
The room was electric when we brought the new Mr. & Mrs. Adams into the room.
But having watched their best friends ham it up during their introductions, they were not going to be outdone on their wedding day!
We calmed down briefly for a first dance…
But then the groomsmen (specifically Jordan’s brothers) initiated a double dutch jump rope and we were back to having fun and never really stopped!
Cue the sweet tooth.
The purple uplighting really complimented the room.
After we cut cakes, it was time for Jordan and his mom to open the dance floor with their dance.
Jenn was prepared.
And the crowd did not disappoint. They packed the dance floor early, often, and stayed late.
I can tell by this girl’s face that this is the ‘Wobble’
No words for this one.
Jordan and Jenn lived on the dance floor.
Right before the toss.
Even the garter was funny
Sparkler send off to finish the night.
Thank you Katie Lamb Photography!
Ginger and Rick hosted their wedding ceremony and reception at the beautiful Hotel ZaZa. I knew this was going to be a fun wedding from our first phone conversation when Rick told me that he and Ginger wanted a party and to have fun, new music for dancing.
The ZaZa ballroom already has lighting on one side, so me and my team went in and matched the color to give the room a full wash.
Thanks to Marc Roberts Videography for this amazing highlight video.
Thanks to Dallas Wedding Videographer Daniel at Lynn Films for sharing the highlight trailer he shot on August 13th of Jenny & Jeremiah’s wedding reception at the McKinney Flour Mill. We got the pleasure of working with planners Meaghan & Kelly at Sweet Pea Events to create one memorable evening.
I’ll post pics from photographer Michelle Parks soon. (no pressure Michelle)

Cassandra and Garth wanted to have a romantic and fun first dance for their wedding last night at the McKinney Cotton Mill. I put together this remix of songs, but we cannot take credit for the choreography. I provided the wedding DJ and the lighting for this event and you can see Brendan and Kelli from Nine Photography at certain points.
