NORTH CAROLINA INTIMATE WOODED WEDDING | NEW BERN NORTH CAROLINA WEDDINGS | DALLAS TEXAS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER | DESTINATION WEDDING

We road tripped to New Bern, North Carolina for my baby brother Jake and new sister Rhonda’s wedding day! Obviously we love weddings ALWAYS, but this one in particular held en even more special place in my heart. Jake and I have had our ups and downs as many siblings do, but honestly, he’s always been the one constant best friend in my life. We are always there for each other without judgement, ridicule, or harshness. When he told me he met the love of his life while they were stationed in Qatar serving for the Marines, I was so excited!

Flash forward to Christmas time. Both of them came to Texas to spend the holidays with us. Jake and I always go on a brother sister coffee date where we usually spend hours catching up. We spent about an hour catching up before he told me all about how he loved Rhonda. How he was ready to ask her to marry him. SO we drove on over to the jewelry store, he picked out a ring, and he planned a proposal! She OBVIOUSLY said yes…:P and the rest is history! They legally tied the knot in January and then planned this sweet intimate wedding!

The wedding day was BEYOND perfect. I cried a ton (of course) and gushed over having a sister, who is carrying my sweet baby niece Olivia as well!

Congratulations Jake and Rhonda. I love you both SO SO much and cannot wait to watch you become parents later this year! Your love inspires me!

BURGUNDY + NAVY + FALL WEDDING AT RUSTIC GRACE ESTATE IN VAN ALSTYNE TEXAS | NORTH TEXAS WEDDING | TEXAS WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHERS

Jordan and Daniel got married on the most beautiful, chilly November day at Rustic Grace Estates in Van Alstyne Texas.

There were so many special moments throughout their day that were just so so inspiring for us. The way Jordan giggled when we told her it was time for her and Daniel’s first look. The details of their day that were family heirlooms (both of their rings, and the earrings Jordan wore). The prayer that the bridesmaids prayed before the ceremony. The was Jordan’s daddy looked at her when he saw her in her dress.

It. Was. Perfect.

Jordan and Daniel’s chemistry and excitement to be around one another is just so inspiring. We hardly had to tell them how to pose for their portraits, they do their own thing! Which was the same way their engagement session went! (You can see their engagement session HERE.)

Jordan & Daniel - We love you guys! We hope you are having the best honeymoon ever!! Thank you so much for giving us the honor of photographing your beautiful day!

Venue: Rustic Grace Estate

Intimate Dallas Wedding | DBU Campus | James & Taylor

On a perfectly sunny Wednesday afternoon, James and Taylor said their personal vows to each other in front of their pastor, a few ladies from their church, and us! It was the sweetest, most intimate wedding we have ever had the pleasure of photographing. And I must say, it was absolutely breathtaking and just perfect for this sweet couple. They had a short but sweet ceremony, and then we drove over to Dallas Baptist University for some bride and groom portraits!

YALL.

This campus is to die for! We were SO happy they wanted to go here! We walked all around the campus and had so much fun with these two.

James & Taylor- Congratulations!! We are so thankful you chose us to photograph your sweet wedding day!

Oklahoma Wedding | Choctaw Casino | Durant, Oklahoma | Brittney & Tucker

GOSH. This wedding!

I’m pretty sure we start every wedding blog at a loss for words because DANG. We sure do love our jobs! Like…We get to celebrate love every darn day! AHH.

Back to our regular scheduled programming…Brittney and Tucker! These two had their wedding on a sunny day in Durant, Oklahoma at the Choctaw Casino and Resorts. Which could not have been more perfect because it was H O T outside y’all. We stayed inside in the AC for 99% of the day, which made for a happy bride and groom!

We started the day in Brittney’s room in the resort. Gathering her details and making sure to photograph each one carefully (one of our favorite parts of the wedding day is details!). We got to see her engagement ring at her bridal session (Click HERE to see her bridals!) but actually photographing it up close made us melt. It is SO gorgeous! We are suckers for vintage style rings, and all things rose gold! This ring is to die for! All of her other details were rose gold and sparkly…SWOON.

The energy in the room was high and there were LOTS of smiles all around! Brittney was a super laid back bride as well, which always makes the getting ready time so much fun.

Natalie went to take photos of the guys getting ready while Amanda stayed to get the bride getting into her dress. (Perks of two photographers…shameless plug) The guys were so much fun! One of the things we try to do when the groom is getting ready at the same location as the bride, is photograph his details just like we do the brides! Luckily they were all in the same place so we got to do this.

Brittney and Tucker didn’t want to do a first look, but wanted to have a special moment before the ceremony. So we had Tucker come up to Brittney’s room for this! There was this cool wall that separated the living area and the bed, so we had Tucker on one side and Brittney on the other to where they could hold hands but not actually see each other! They shared a sweet moment, then we all made our way downstairs to the ceremony.

The ceremony was perfect of course, and complete with a traditional Choctaw blanket ceremony at the end. So neat! Afterwards, we took the bridal party down to the casino and did some really neat photos there. Then took the bride and groom outside for super quick sunset portraits. (EVERY bride should make sure this fits in their timeline! SO worth it!) We ran back up stairs just in time for them to be introduced into their reception! Which was SO much fun! Our favorite DJ -David Tarvin at Cadence Studios is just so amazing at keeping the party going and reading the room. He is so great! (So great…he was actually Amanda’s DJ at her wedding 6 years ago! HA!)

Everyone danced all night long, then the sweet couple ended their wedding day with one last special dance by themselves.

Brittney and Tucker- We wish you both happiness and all the love in the world! We are so very thankful and honored that you chose us to photograph and celebrate your wedding day! Congratulations!!
