Texas Family Ranch Engagement Session

We can always count on Feather & Twine Photography to deliver the prettiest snaps of love, and today’s adorable e-sesh is heavily rooted to this couple’s most-loved place: home. As a fifth generation farmer and professional barrel racer, these two cuties slipped on the cowgirl boots and jeans and the result is Southwestern love like no other.

From the beautiful Bride…As soon as we got engaged, my fiancé and I both knew we wanted to have our engagement photos done on his family’s cattle ranch. He’s a fifth generation farmer and rancher and I’m a professional barrel racer, so there is nothing we love more than the natural beauty of the North Texas ranch where we plan to make our home. Between the vintage 1959 Chevy pickup, the old tin barn, and the sprawling grassland where you can see for miles and miles, we felt like Kelsey did an incredible job capturing our love in the place that we love most.

From Kat Harris PhotographyWhen I think of Lauren and Jason I think of depth, authenticity, laughter, and power. What is amazing about their love is that individually they both have passion to be a positive voice in our culture, and together the power they have to be leaders in our world is endless. (Not to mention their love is completely infectious!)

Their wedding day was flawless. Surrounded by their family and community they celebrated what God has done in their lives, and their journey towards forever. Lauren was so full of peace and so grounded that day, and Jason is always a ball of energy and such a light.

Their ceremony was intimate and tears and laughter brought their announcement of husband and wife. Todd Events created an effortless winter chic vibe, and to say there was an epic dance party is an understatement. Jason and Lauren you two are gems. You bring such light to our world, and we are so excited for your lives to unfold!

Elegant Peach Dallas Wedding

With Georgia and Virginia as their home states, this couple wanted nothing more than to infuse their Southern roots into their wedding day, and elegantly so they did. Branching Out crafted beautiful peach and magnolia foliage centerpieces, while bridesmaids wore full-length champagne Jenny Yoo dresses and the stunning Bride in a lacy Essence Of Australia gown, paired with a perfect chignonSarah Kate captured every moment and you can see them all right here.

From the beautiful Bride…Magnolias in May-the mindset I had when planning our special day. My husband is from Georgia and my family is from Virginia so I really wanted our wedding to reflect our Southern roots. One of the best words of wisdom we had prior to our big day was to truly savor every moment, which is why we tried to truly embrace all the special moments of our day.

My husband and I chose not to do a first look, however I embraced that modern tradition and did a first look with my daddy (Pops). It was a moment full of joyful tears and our sweet photographer Sarah Kate had to stop numerous times for me to get it together for photos. I couldn’t look at Pops without becoming a blubbery mess, our bond is truly one of a kind.

My husband and I have alternated planning surprise date nights every week nicknamed Hot Tuesday ever since our very first date. It was such a fun way to explore our new city [Dallas] and motivated us to plan fun dates around the city. I fell in love with Ross through all the surprises and so I really wanted to plan a big surprise for him on our wedding day. All of our family and friends are familiar with our date night and our good friend that married us even mentioned it in our ceremony.

Ross went to The University of Georgia and to say he is a bulldog fan would be an understatement. I wanted his surprise to be something really memorable to him as well as something fun for our guest to enjoy. The Rabun Bourbon Bar was the perfect addition to make our wedding truly personal. It was so much working with Caroline Fair, Fauxcades and Southern Fried Paper to create the surprise. My daddy built the frame for the sign the week of our wedding-sweet man!

My husband and I snuck into the ballroom during the outdoor cocktail hour so I could reveal his big surprise. It was a great way to kick off the evening and our guest [especially the Georgia fans] loved personalized bar.

When I met with our florist I explained to her, I knew nothing about flowers but wanted magnolias and peaches to bring our Southern roots to Dallas. My husband’s family is deeply rooted in Georgia and I wanted to symbolize both of our families becoming one on that day. Branching Out Events surpassed our vision for our Southern wedding, trophies filled with peaches, magnolia foliage welcoming guest to our cocktail hour and mint julep cups reminisced for a perfect Southern Saturday.

Our friends and family love to dance and Cuvvee brought down the house. We danced the night away closing with an intimate last dance to truly savor the evening.

From To Live. To Love. PhotographyToday I’m sharing some mad Marfa goodness with y’all! This Bride and Ggroom were super trendy and were open to anything. I was blessed enough to photograph their day. My favorite moment was their first look at the Prada store in Marfa, such a beautiful moment.

From The Bride…In the Spring of 2012, I met Jonathan at the gym while we were both living in Houston. As simple as it gets, Jonathan approached me during my workout one day. Although I was intrigued by his cute smile, with some hesitation I politely declined his request for  my phone number – instead I suggested we speak at the gym a few more times. Jonathan, knowing it was love at first sight, did not take no for answer and subsequently persuaded the front desk clerk at the gym to give him my last name so he could find me on Facebook. A little persistance and a few Facebook messages later, Jonathan met me and Flush, my dog, at the park. Following that first “hang out”, Jonathan and I quickly became inseparable and were soon on the road to falling in love. Fast forward a year later, we took a road trip to West Texas to visit family. During that trip we discovered the enchantment of an unknown West Texas town called Marfa. The small amount of time we spent in Marfa that weekend made a lasting impression on our relationship. When we got engaged in November of 2013, it was a no brainer that Marfa would be the perfect destination to say their vows.

Out wedding was the perfect modern, chic West Texas affair we wanted. With gold cactus accents, vibrant florals, rose gold shoes, and a glitter glam atmosphere our  black tie affair ended with a glow stick exit.

This lovely lady had a distinct vision for her special day, and with the help of Pearl Events and Stems Floral Design, created an absolute masterpiece.

From The Bride… Although Derek and I are native Houstonians, we always knew we wanted our day to be in Austin, Texas. Over the past six years, we fell in love with Lake Austin, the culture of the city and everything it had to offer. Our fondest memories together are of us spending all of our summers traveling to Austin and escaping to the lake with family and friends. Our vision for our wedding was to have an intimate and romantic outdoor ceremony nestled on the shores of Lake Austin. We incorporated elegant chandeliers, soft fabrics, and romantic florals with a classic touch of vintage pieces to help tell our story.

Our day had a vintage glam theme with colors of blush, ivory, gold metallics, and a hint of dusty gray. A project that was very special to us was including old black & white wedding photographs from both of our families that lined the mantle. It was also a way to include our loved ones who are no longer with us. We also loved incorporating the church pews into our outdoor reception!

The biggest challenge was defining separate spaces at the event space. We used the space for the ceremony and reception, so working out the details to keep the two spaces separate but still cohesive proved to be the most challenging. Luckily, we had nothing to worry about thanks to the creative ideas and combined effort from all of our vendors! 

My favorite moment was approaching the top of the stairway, arm and arm with my Dad, catching a glimpse of our closest family and friends making their way down the aisle, and hearing the beautiful strings of the trio playing – it really put me in the most surreal moment of my life. Everything finally stopped moving and I thought, “This is it.”

On our wedding day, we were overwhelmed by the love and excitement from all of our family and friends. We wanted our day to be as much for them as it was for us. My advice to newly engaged brides would be to make your day a reflection of you and your fiancé – don’t be afraid to put your own spin on things and just own it!

From Anna Smith Photography… Lavish ornamentation, vivid colors, geometric shapes, glamour and luxury. These are just a few words that describe a time in fashion history that was an inspiration for this Great Gatsby 1920’s theme inspirational shoot. Styled by Chic Fleur Weddings and Events and photographed by myself, Anna Smith Photography, my vision came to reality showing off the works of many talented vendors in Dallas. With perfect touches of antiques from Gold Dust Vintage Rentals, vintage clothing, treasured family heirloom props and a couple very much in love we were able to create this drop dead gorgeous navy & gold stunner.

The Aldredge House set the backdrop for these gorgeous photos. Beginning as a gift to a bride in the early 1900’s, the history of Aldredge House has been that of a true love story. It now sits as a prominent mansion in the Swiss Avenue Historical District in Dallas and shines with Gatsby’s Style sophistication. From antique furnishings to exquisite walnut paneling
 to an exterior wraparound terrace ideal for cocktails
 to impeccably maintained gardens it was an absolute perfection for our night of inspiration.

The floral design by Ginger Root Florals completed the flawless and genuine design. I wanted our high-end day decorated with opulent and gorgeous white flowers with a touch of blue and lots of texture. By using white anemone and blue jackpot thistle we were able to add pops of color without overwhelming the scene. White standard roses, white spray roses, cafe au lait dahlias, ranunculus, dusty miller & hydrangeas were used to design the bouquet and gold vase centerpieces.

The place settings and vintage gold rimmed glassware were something out of this world. Sun-shaped and unique charger plates – these stood out to us in their lavish design and elegance. Bar cart was a must & was decorated with glassware and liquor bottles from 1920’s and bubby champagne.

Stationery created by Kaitlin Parisho was wonder to my eyes. I have never seen anything as unique & elegant, purely beautiful. The art deco style table numbers paired with blue and silver fun fonts with gold art deco designs brought a touch of sophistication and glam of the 1920s. She even ordered vintage stamps!

Our models were an actual married couple, so it was easy to feel their love and affection during the shoot. The attire was classy, clean and sophisticated generously provided to us by Culwell & Son and Patsy’s Bridal. Culwell & Son helped us choose a tuxedo from the era for our handsome groom. Patsy’s provided us with the most beautiful chiffon beaded wedding gown by Martina Liana from their vintage glam collection. Dallas Hair and Make up created a dramatic look for the bride with sparkly eyes and bright red lips. We went for bold and beautiful and absolutely achieved the look.

The jewelry provided by Patsy’s Bridal and Nordstrom Bridal were elaborate and magnificent. Intricately cut & radiant pieces carefully handcrafted for the bride’s headband, emerald and art deco shaped drop earrings and delicately cut stones with tiny crystal pattern for the hand tied bracelet were all inspired by the jewelry and headpieces popular to the 1920’s era.

The cake created by the amazing Sweet Thangs by Lo Michelle was set with intricate Gold Art Deco Designs. The Vintage Car was provided to us by Blue Diamond Limousines Of Texas. Green Light Media Services filmed the event and made a beautiful video for the shoot. All together this was a showcase of many talented Dallas Vendors and we can not wait to share our inspiration with the world. We will be very honored for SMP to feature our work.
