A Rainy, Rustic Wedding

Rustic Grace estate in Van Alstyne was the perfect spot for Jamie & Jared to tie the knot. The rain kept trying to mess with their plans, but we just embraced it and didn’t let a little water stop us from getting some great shots. Being a dallas wedding photographer, weather is always a challenge. You just never know what is going to happen with the weather here. But as a Dallas wedding photographer, I am ready for it all because I have seen it all!

Their ceremony in the white chapel was incredible. These two truly love each other and have a deep faith that has kept them strong. I loved seeing them look into each others eyes and make vows that were genuine and full of commitment. After that, we beat the rain by getting some pictures outside the rustic red barn and in front of the pond. With a long drive ahead of them, this couple decided to call it an early night so they could get to Oklahoma. So after a quick reception, they changed and left as their guests blew bubbles in the rain.

Here are a few pictures of their rustic wedding.

Bass Performance Hall Bridals

Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth holds a special place in Hannah’s heart…so when she found out she could have her bridal session there, the decision was made. Hannah is an actress who now owns a few theaters of her own, so this was very much in line with her passion for the arts and acting. We were able to walk around Bass Performance Hall to get photos in some of the neatest places. Hannah was a natural with posing and made my job super easy! After photos inside the hall, we went outside real quick for a snap outside the theatre for memory sake. After all, this place holds a lot of memories for this family, so this whole session was super special to them. If you are reading this, it means Hannah is finally married. I say finally, because when you have an amazing session like this at the Bass Performance Hall, waiting to post that is painful! So yay! Congrats to Hannah and now we can share!

Erwin Park Spring Session

Scott and Amanda wanted their engagement session at Erwin Park in Mckinney – somewhere with trees and natural beauty. What I didn’t know, was that Scott had plans to start the session off with playing a little joke on his fiancée. He jumped out of the truck wearing shorts shorts, a headband, and well…you just have to see it. He then got back in the truck for a quick wardrobe change and came out in fiancee approved attire. We killed some mosquitoes as we walked around Erwin Park taking photos wherever our stroll took us. At the end of the session I put my camera I my bag and it literally started to rain. Perfect timing! Trying to beat the crazy Texas weather is never fun, but it is just part of being a photographer in Dallas in the spring.

Jennifer and Barrett’s Summer Wedding

Summer weddings are sometimes tough to navigate. It is the best time of year to travel and if you friends are teachers, like Jennifer, it just makes sense. So how do you find a venue that works well in the crazy heat of Dallas? Find the best wedding venue you can that says “Texas.” When your wedding venue is Rustic…it kind of makes the whole summer wedding thing make sense. Yard games, ice cold beer, and Texas countryside is the perfect place to spend a hot summer evening…especially on your wedding day! And Rustic Grace is the perfect spot to have a summer wedding! You get to enjoy the beauty of Texas while keeping all the major events inside. From the white chapel to the red barn to the new silos – there are plenty of places to cool off. But when the sun sets, head on outside and enjoy the warm summer breeze and conversations with friends.

Jennifer and Barrett enjoyed an intimate ceremony with their family followed by a dancing the night away kind of reception. Jennifer’s teacher friends sure knew how to keep the dance floor packed! We even got a little karaoke, coordinated dance, and dance routine that evening. It was so fun to be a part of their wedding and see these two tie the knot! Congrats to Jennifer and Barrett!
