Alyssa & Jordan's Wedding at Cross Creek Ranch

Happy Anniversary to this happy couple! Last fall we had the pleasure of being part of their wedding day. The ceremony and reception took place at Cross Creek Ranch in Parker, TX at the edge of Plano and Allen. They all got ready and had fun at a nearby hotel, and did any finishing touches getting ready in the suites at the venue. The outdoor ceremony went perfectly as planned and their little boy won over the guest in his custom-made ring bearer wagon. After the ceremony, we grabbed some family, bridal party, and pictures of the bride and groom. Being fall you would expect some cooler weather, but Texas had other plans.  The bridal party did a great dance entrance into the reception to kick of the fun. There was plenty of food, dancing, enjoying the company of another, newlywed games, and laughs. Thanks, Alyssa & Jordan again and we wish you the very best. 

The Milestone Mansion Denton Wedding

Sherri & Edward's wedding took place at the gorgeous Milestone Mansion in Denton. They had tied the knot a year before, but the family wanted to be part of the celebration so a formal wedding was put on the books. Sherri was amazing to work with since our first conversation, and we knew that this wedding was going to go wonderfully. From the time they decided to have a formal wedding to the time the wedding came around Sherri & Edward decided to have a little one to add to the family, adding another reason to have a celebration. The ladies got ready downstairs in the bridal suit, while the gentleman relaxed in the awesome groom's quarters. The details of the wedding highlighted elegance and simplicity. They walked down the aisle to live guitar playing, said their I dos, and took time to get pictures together and with the family. Live music and the DJ attracted the group out on the dance floor, and they shared one of the sweetest first dances. For the wedding cake they decided to add a twist and do a gender reveal for their upcoming little one. Everyone got to grab a cupcake, and at the same time take a bite to reveal they would be having a little girl! After some more dancing and spending time with family, they completed the night with a sparkler exit. We hope the very best for this sweet family.

Southern Style Mabank Wedding

Brittany & Rory's day was everything we thought it would be and more. We first got to meet them during their engagement shoot and instantly knew how awesome they were. This is one of those couples that light up a room together, and there is no doubt how much they care for one another. Their wedding day showed every bit of this, as well as how much their family and friends cared for them. It was a full team effort; from Brittany's mom taking point on the food, the both sides of the family helping with set-up and decor, and even Brittany's boss offering his ranch for this event. Their ring bearers and flower girl could not have been sweeter, and their wedding party was on point. The ceremony took place in the Gazebo on the property pond and the reception was out overlooking the hay fields. The weather was perfect and the sounds of the countryside were unmatched. The did their first toast with Shiner and the first dance had everyone laughing. The groom's cake had Rory's favorite Marvel characters and the thank you gifts were mini jars of honey. This was one of those weddings you hate to see come to an end, but left grateful we got to a part of it.

Aubrey Wedding at The Springs

 I had the pleasure of meeting this awesome bride and groom months before the wedding, and I knew since then it was going to be great. Melissa, the bride, is a nurse and her groom, Kevin, is a local firefighter. They are such an awesome down to earth couple and are wonderful to work with. Their gorgeous wedding took place at THE SPRINGS in Aubrey, TX right outside of Denton. The venue is beautiful inside and out, and the team their does are great to work with. I had the chance to take pictures with the bride and bridesmaids in the bridal suite while Travis got to take some around the venue and with the guys. All the girls got matching robes and stemless campaign glasses, while the guys went the whiskey route. 

When it was time for the ceremony everything went perfect as they got married under an arch they had put together of fresh flowers. Following the ceremony the guest went inside for cocktail hour while we got some shots of family, bridal party, and them of course. It was warm outside (imagine that in Texas) so we felt bad keeping the bride and groom outside too long in the heat, but we love the pictures they gave us from that time. The reception was decorated in gold, burlap, and pinks with custom touches everywhere. The DJ was able to keep the everyone on the dance floor most the night, and the night was wrapped up with a glow stick exit.

Arlington Summer Wedding

Steve & Jessica were such a joy to work with. They had an August wedding in Arlington with family and friends from all over the country. The classic ceremony was held at Saint Maria Goretti Church. We loved all the details throughout the church, but I the organ was by far my favorite. The ceremony was beautiful and they stayed behind to take pictures with us while the guest went ahead to the reception. 

The reception was at a nearby La Quinta Inn & Suites. Everyone welcomed the bride and groom with a bubble entrance. The first dance was our favorite so far, they did such a great job! They had a classic sit down dinner, with a place on the table to write message to the bride and groom. The DJ walked them through the newly wed game on the dance floor, and the rest of the night it was full with guest having a great time. The wedding planner they used to help with everything was Cloud Creative Events. We were thankful to get to be part of this great couples big day as they start their new life together. 

Rivieria Maya Wedding

We could not be more excited for this sweet couple Ginger and Jimmy. I still can not believe their big day has already came and went.

This destination wedding took place at the Occidental Grand Xcaret in Riviera Maya, Mexico. Their goal was to make this a great time to spend with their close friends and family in a beautiful location, and they did just that. The girls started off the day getting ready at the spa with getting their hair and make up done. They finished up getting ready in a suite with their matching robes and a few drinks to celebrate. I loved the hangers that Ginger got for all the girls, I thought it was a great extra touch to add to the event.

The ceremony started in the evening and was situated in authentic Mayan ruins in the Riviera Maya. Everything was gorgeous. I loved that on her bouquet she added some of her dad's pins honor his memory. The guys looked sharp as Ginger's sister brought her down the aisle. The ceremony could not have been more gorgeous, even the ring bearer was left in tears.

They hosted a cocktail hour with an open bar while we took some pictures. Afterwards everyone enjoyed dinner. Ginger had a special spot reserved for her dad at the family table. To wrap up the night everyone had a great time on the dance floor with a live mariachi band. Even some of the local wild life showed up for the fun.

We can't thank Ginger & Jimmy enough for including us in telling their story. Feel free to check out their engagement photos and Ginger's bridals if you have not had the chance.

Abbey & Timothy's Fort Worth Wedding

We have had such a great time being part of this amazing couple's story. We started off the wedding day at a local Fort Worth church getting to spend time with the bride, groom, bridal party, and family. Everyone was in great spirits and excited for these two to tie the knot. I loved the robes the girls had when getting ready (for some reason the groomsmen did get these awesome gifts: ) . Before the ceremony the bride and groom made time to have one last prayer together before they walked down the aisle. The colors used to celebrate the wedding day in was a deep purple and gold. They had a classic ceremony and stayed back to take family photos while everyone else headed to the reception.  The reception took place at the Gladney Center for Adoption. The cake was amazing and there was plenty of dancing. To wrap up the day we got some shots of the bride and groom and let them head out to their honeymoon in Mexico. 

Cross Creek Ranch Wedding

We love getting the opportunity to shoot at Cross Creek Ranch, it is one that never has let us down.  It is family owned & operated and they are always willing to help in every way. It is located in Parker, TX north of Dallas, and has a very secluded feel to it. The wedding party and the bride were great to work with and seemed to enjoy every part of the big day. The atmosphere of the wedding was relaxed from start to finish. It was an evening Friday ceremony, and the colors of the wedding were white on white. For the ceremony we loved that the grandfather played a piece for the newlyweds near the completion of the service.

For dinner they brought in Babes, which is always a favorite of mine. They had one of my favorite guest books hands down, it was a large wooden Texas that everyone had the chance to write a message. The centerpieces were all provided by the venue and looked great! I also loved the kids activity table they set up and that the bride even took a stop at to do some quick coloring. All in all the night went great, and we had a blast!
