Mansion on Turtle Creek Wedding Precessional

I love when my client’s leave their own personal touches on their wedding…even when it is anything but traditional.  Angeline and Jacob hosted their ceremony and reception at the Mansion on Turtle Creek, but just because they chose a historic (and gorgeous) hotel did not mean that Angeline could not put her own spin on the night.

Once the ceremony started, the parents were seated to Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desire, followed by the bridesmaids walking down the aisle to Canon in D.  Finally when it was time for Angeline’s father to walk her down the aisle, Gyros String Quartet of Dallas played TI’s Whatever You Like and I had my iphone ready.

Gyros did a fantastic job of taking a modern rap song and making it sound great in a string version.  My favorite part is when Jacob & Angeline’s friends figure out the song about 8 seconds into the video and you can hear the laughter.  Special thanks to Jaime Jones at Bella Flora and Emily Hess at the Mansion for making the night wonderful for all of the guests and vendors.

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.

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.

St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Wedding Ceremony

Bryan and Lindsay were married back in September and hopefully I will have more photos and video to share from the reception very soon.  Until I do, here is a sneak preview Chris Watson put together of the wedding ceremony.  If you did not see the ‘Save the Date’ video that Chris shot for Lindsay and Bryan you can find it here.

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 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.

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

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.
