Here are some weddings that I have worked in and around Dallas proper.

Nathan & Lauren’s iBooth Pics

Nathan and Lauren had the iBooth at their Old Red Courthouse wedding.  Here are the photos from the insanity that followed.

Lindsey & Colin’s Room on Main Dallas Wedding

Colin and Lindsey were married this past Saturday at the Room on Main!  Shout out to Elizabeth at After Yes Weddings for introducing me to her fabulous clients – Elizabeth made EVERYTHING easy.

Here is the highlight video from Lynn Films.  Always a pleasure to work with Daniel and his team.  Lynn Films consistently delivers a great product (and fast).

Keep an eye out for photos from Tracy Autem Photography!

Room on Main Dallas Wedding Video

Glenn was at the Room on Main in downtown Dallas for Carlie and Paul’s wedding.  Meredith Commender from Significant Events of Texas brought together a rock star team.  It’s always great to work with our friends Ben and Stefanie from Hampton-Morrow Photography and the fabulous Branching Out team (check out the arch in the video).  We also got to make a new friend who happened to not only be a friend of Carlie’s, but also an AMAZING videographer who came in from New York.

Check out AJ Ingoglia’s highlight film below.  Want him for your wedding?  He would happily come back to Dallas (we asked).

Happy 1st Anniversary to Chad & Tara

Chad and Tara rang in the New Year by getting married!  It was a wonderful way to celebrate.  Their friends and family partied well into 2012 and helped me start this wonderful year off right.  So…Happy First Anniversary Mr. & Mrs Davis!  I hope life in Singapore is treating you well.

Here is a highlight of the pictures from their beautiful ceremony and reception at the Joule Hotel in downtown Dallas.  Photos are courtesy of Chris at Ivey Photography.  To see more pictures from this wedding check out the Ivey Photography blog and also check out the post of Tara’s bridals.

Notice the uplights are subtle but add a definite splash of color.

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.

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.

Old Red Courthouse Dallas Wedding Reception

Amy & Ryan celebrated their entire wedding at the Old Red Courthouse in downtown Dallas.  My team was there to provide DJ, ceremony sound, uplighting, custom monogram, and photobooth.

Here is a teaser video from Dulock Productions of the evening.  I cannot wait to share the rest of the films that the Dulock team is working on.

Gangnam Style Party at CityPlace Dallas

One more from Ammi and Peter’s wedding (atleast until the photographer and videographer post some of their stuff).  Ammi’s family is originally from Korea so Gangnam Style was not just an internet sensation, but a must play at her wedding.  Their friends and family KNEW the dance.  Here is a short snippet of the fun we had at CityPlace.

Superhero Cake Topper at CityPlace Dallas

Who says you cannot have Catwoman and Batman as your cake toppers?  Not Ammi and Peter!  Here was the cake from Saturday’s wedding at CityPlace Dallas.  You can see a little of the view in the background.

Unfortunately, I cannot bring you along to someone else’s wedding, but the next best thing is video.  You can find all of the videos on our blog here, but I have highlighted a few great videos here on one page.  Besides, we both know you want do not want to drive to the other side of the metroplex to peek through a little crack in the door.

Erica & Taslow brought their friends from all over the country to celebrate at the McKinney Cotton Mill.  They met at Oklahoma State University, and while they chose purple instead of orange for their signature color they had plenty of OSU spirit from their table names down to serving fries in Eskimo Joe’s cups later in the evening.  I love this video by Marc Roberts because it shows how much fun my clients can have at a wedding if they focus on partying and trust their vendors to rock their wedding.

Kirsten & Ryan met at Texas Tech University and celebrated their ceremony and reception at the Fort Worth City Club.  The dance floor was packed from the first song through the last song.

Jessica & Brian’s hosted their ceremony and reception at the Ashton Depot in downtown Fort Worth. Special thanks to Candelight Films for sharing another fabulous video with me.  To see other weddings I have worked with Candlelight, click here.

Colleen & Byron celebrated their wedding and reception at the beautiful Union Station in Downtown Dallas. The first video is their videographer’s highlight video.  It includes ceremony and reception.  Reception starts at about 3.5 minutes in.

Colleen and her bridesmaids have been dancing together for years on the high school dance team and in the living room, so when it came time for Colleen and Byron to tie the knot the girls saw this as an opportunity to choreograph an epic introduction dance. This is the result of all of their hard work!

We had the privilege of working with Perez Photography and Candlelight Films on Lindsay and Jacob’s wedding at Union Station. Candlelight put together this highlight film from the night.

Lindsay + Jacob :: Coming Soon from CandleLight Films on Vimeo.

Jadrien and McCall were married on May 28th. Glenn Roush Entertainment created a highlight reel from some captured footage of their wedding reception at the Fort Worth City Club. Jadrien and McCall graduated from Texas Christian University along with many of their friends and wedding party, so there was even more to celebrate this night. Their friends and family showed up ready to have a fun night and help the couple celebrate their new life together. I wish this video did justice to how much we had – my staff has nominated it as one of the most epic weddings of 2011 and there is still plenty of year to go.

Ben & Kelly Get Married at Perkins Chapel

Last week, I showcased some sneak peaks from Ben & Kelly’s incredible reception at the Hilton Bella Harbor.  Reception photos here.

While I did not assist with the ceremony audio & visual on this wedding, I loved the photos from Laura at Fairy Tale Photography and wanted to share them.

It was so perfect that the SMU landscaping crew planted tulips that matched Kelly’s colors perfectly.

There was a light spring shower throughout the day.

These two were all smiles all weekend.  Also, if you need an officiant Marty Younkin with Love Notes (and his team) are the best in DFW.  You will see Marty on almost every ceremony referral list in town for a reason.

The advantage of a team of shooters is one photographer captures a great shots while you are looking at the other photographer.

Rosewood Crescent Hotel Wedding Reception Video

Yesterday I posted photos from Courtney and Jacob’s reception.  If you missed them, be sure to check out that post.  In today’s post I have the privilege to share the highlight video that BJ Roman, at Roman Video Productions, put together to commemorate the day.  Sweet Pea Events planned this event with Courtney to perfection.

Crescent Hotel Dallas Wedding

Crescent Hotel Wedding Reception

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.

Courtney and Jacob had a choreographed first dance.

Jacob’s cake was an Ironman logo (the race not Robert Downey Jr. character), because Jacob is an avid runner and has competed in Ironman competitions.
In fact, he ran a 5k the morning of his wedding.
Crescent Hotel Wedding

The chefs at the Crescent put together this lovely cake.
Crescent Hotel Wedding

This is a perfect example of why I am so particular about toasting. You can have a picture with the bride, groom, and person giving a toast (bestman in this photo) perfectly framed. The guests can see the couple, but the toaster can look at the bride & groom to eliminate the nerves of facing the crowd.
Crescent Hotel Wedding

All smiles for the father-daughter dance.

I love both of the smiles on their faces. The toss portion of the reception does not have to be cheesy to be fun!
Crescent Hotel Wedding

Courtney and her family had prepared me that their guests were coming to party.

Jacob did not show any signs of running a 5k that morning. Apparently, that is just a warm up for an Ironman.

Everyone needed to catch their breath.

They finished the night with a private last dance together.

Trinity Audubon Center Wedding Video

Daniel and Angela were married and celebrated their wedding ceremony and reception on October 7th at the Trinity Audubon Center in Dallas.  We worked with Premiere Photobooth and McGowan Images on this gorgeous wedding.  The videographer on this A-Team, J Christopher Films shared this incredible highlight video.

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.

Trinity River Audubon Center Wedding Ceremony

Daniel and Angela were married in October at the Trinity River Audubon Center in Dallas.  The weather was perfect for an outdoor ceremony.  The wind had been acting up at points during the day, but it died down just in time for the prelude.  Special thanks to Chelsea and Mac McGowan at McGowan Images for sharing these gorgeous photos.

The weather was absolutely beautiful.

Joule Hotel Wedding Reception

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.

Joule Hotel Wedding Ceremony

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.

Crescent Club Ballroom Reception – November 5th

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.

Four Seasons Dallas Fun Wedding Reception

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).

Four Seasons Dallas Fun Wedding Ceremony

Jenn and Jordan were married just before sunset on October 21st at the beautiful Four Seasons Resort & Spa of Dallas.  Their ceremony was right off the 16th hole and the weather could not have been more perfect.

Katie Lamb made the trip up from Houston and we had a Baylor football player marrying a Baylor cheerleader with a Baylor photographer and Baylor DJ.  Sic Em!

I loved this couple because they were always ready to have fun. Wait until you see the reception photos.

Hotel ZaZa Wedding Reception Video

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.
