Intimate Garden Wedding in the Springtime

More and more, we are coming across weddings built around the idea of small and intimate. Think a dinner party in a gorgeous garden setting with beautiful vows folded in and you have this Spring affair captured by Tracy Enoch Photography. With guitar music playing in the background, purple blooms  by Gro Designs blanketing the table and LOVE literally hanging from the trees, this wedding proves that good things come in small packages.


From The Bride…We wanted an intimate wedding with all the things we loved the most. Family, the outdoors, amazing food, beautiful guitar music, and a yummy cake! Everything came together perfectly and the unpredictable Texas weather turned out to be perfect and made for the best day ever! “Love is in the air” was the theme, with the LOVE letters at the reception representing the theme. Deep cassis and purple came together in the suit ties, the dresses and flowers. I wanted the table to be long and beautiful, full of candles and flowers. With soft guitar music playing in the background, romance was all around. We finished the night off with our favorite part-White Chocolate Liqueur CAKE and the first dance as husband and wife! Love was in the air all night, the most perfect night ever!

Traditional Dallas Wedding at The Room On Main

When a gorgeous traditional wedding joins forces with a non-stop party, it’s allllll sorts of awesome. Especially when that party is filled with vibrant bursts of gold, purple, pink and red hues mixed with crazy cool balloons and non-stop dancing.  Yes, this is the type of affair where the bride isn’t afraid to get up and sing.  See it all captured by Shaun Menary Photography in the full gallery.

From The Bride… Our wedding was a dream come true! The whole day was meaningful, beautiful and filled with so much happiness. Matt and I were quite involved in every detail, so it was gratifying to experience our whole day as greater than the sum of its parts. We are very traditional, but we love a fun party! In keeping with our formal side, we chose classic elements including the color scheme, tuxedos, church ceremony, music and the choir (which was the jewel of the service!). The reception incorporated more fun elements including the amazing dance band, homemade photo booth and balloons!

From Shaun Menary PhotographyNatalie and Matt are close personal friends of ours, so it was such a joy to shoot their wedding. These two are real-deal soul mates. It’s just bonus that she’s so stylish, and he’s one dapper gent. They had a traditional ceremony at the couple’s home church in the sanctuary luscious with dark chocolate wood and romantic dim lighting. Natalie has a musical background and loves choral music, so the church choir came in on a Saturday just to serenade their bride down the aisle.

The reception at Room on Main was STEMS of Dallas knocked it out of the park (duh!) on floral arrangements, and the bride did all her own calligraphy… she can do yours, too! She also had the idea of heightening the centerpieces with helium balloons (embellished with gold fringe) to fill the space to the soaring 30-foot ceilings. And that lighting on the cake table… Matt had that custom-made for the proposal! I imagine they’re doing something equally rad with it in their house now.

It was a lovely celebration of two people so deep in love and so wonderful for one another. It was a pleasure to photograph and even more of a pleasure to participate. Much love to Matt and Natalie (AKA, Mattalie) Wilson!

Whimsical Autumn Engagement Shoot

In my opinion, simple and sweet is enough. A walk through the forest, a bottle of bubbly, a few giant garden roses… and that’s exactly what this crisp autumn e-sesh from Query Events and Cinnamon Dreams Photography embodies. With a touch of whimsy, this gallery is a perfect little dose of pretty.

From Ambra Costner of Query Events… This shoot was motivated by fall and the holiday season. I pictured this newly engaged couple on a Saturday evening attending one of their many functions and escaping for a romantic evening in nature. I was really inspired by a neutral color palette and love the pops of pink with the fantastically huge garden roses. One of my absolute favorite aspects of the photo shoot is the juxtaposition between the glamour in the bride-to-be and accessories with the rawness of nature. You have a young woman in a full length chiffon dress standing in a severely cracked and dried creek bed and crystal wine glasses displayed next to a fallen tree. You could see this couple during the shoot and just how in love they were, nudging each other when we were changing lenses and carrying her over the dried creek bed so she would get her beautiful dress dirty in transition. It’s always amazing to get to be a part of two individuals joining as one and starting their life together and I was happy to get to be a part of this!
