Dallas Wedding Photographers: Christina + Jeremy | Stone Oak Ranch |

True love can be a little like a runner’s high. It’s hard to describe just what it feels like until you feel it yourself – the wind rushes through your hair, the sun shines overhead, and everything in the world seems crystal clear and perfectly happy. Sometimes when you’re starting out, you don’t know where the road will take you, but that magical elation carries you to your destination. For these two, the journey started at opposite ends of a room. It was the very first time they saw each other, and he was the shy guy in the group. She was shy too, which meant that saying hi to each other would have to wait. Eventually they worked up the courage to talk to each other, and they found themselves quickly becoming more than friends. As the years went on and they finished college, they fell madly in love, and it looked like the their destination was coming into sight. Finally, one chilly winter day the two of them set off to run a race together in the town of Little Rock, Arkansas. He parted ways with her after completing his part of the race, reminding her to look for him at the finish line. As she crossed the finish line of her marathon, she noticed a group of people in the middle of the runway, and one by one they started to flip over signs. “Will You Marry Me…” they read, and there he knelt with a little black box in hand. She said yes.

Meet Christina and Jeremy.

For these two lovebirds raised in the south, you couldn’t have imagined a more perfect wedding day. From the outdoor ceremony chapel under Texas skies, to the twinkling lights in the barn loft reception, and the handmade DIY table-toppers, floral designs, and decor, it was the sweetest of rustic wedded soirées.

We work with amazing assistants, but a special thank you goes out to our assistant for this wedding. When a makeup artist was needed, our photography assistant Melissa (who used to do makeup and knew what to do!) stepped in and helped the bride finish her look. How fabulous is that?! Love it.

We miss you guys! : ) Getting to be a part of your love story and spending time with y’all along the journey has been such an honor. You two are amazing! Everyone loves y’all, and seeing how your day came together, and how elated your friends and family were for you, proved it even more. We wish you both all the joy and blessings as you start this new journey as husband and wife.

Much love,

Story from the Bride:

When Jeremy and I began planning our wedding, I envisioned a rustic outdoor venue with twinkle lights and handmade details for the ceremony. My mother is a very crafty and creative person and has taught me so much growing up. She used to take me and my sister to old country stores and to Canton and we would come home and recreate the beautiful things that we saw. It only seemed natural to use the skills she’s given me to personalize our wedding as best I could! Everything from the “Just Married” banner to the rustic glass bottle centerpieces and the bridal and bridesmaids bouquets were handmade. It was so much work, but the wedding became very personal and I was so happy to share every moment with our guests. Jeremy and I met five years ago in a small college group bible study at a Baptist Church. We were so shy we didn’t even say hello to each other the first day we saw each other! Once we realized we had similar outlooks in life and shared the same sense of humor, we became friends and we started dating shortly after. I so cherish the fact that Jeremy was so involved in the planning process of our wedding! He chose the song that he wanted me to walk down the aisle to and our first dance. He was so helpful and supportive. I was so nervous walking down the aisle, terrified that I might trip, but when I got to the alter and I saw him there and his eyes were moist my heart just melted! I will always remember that moment.

Dallas Wedding Photographers: Francine + Kevin | Sky Creek Ranch Wedding |

It sounds like something straight out of a movie – the kind of movie that leaves you with a happy feeling inside, wondering if maybe such a love story could come true in real life. A girl and a boy meet in college, then go their separate ways. Time goes on, life goes on, and they end up on opposite sides of the country. He eventually settles down in the southwest, while she ends up in the Windy City, and the seasons turn until five years have gone by. One year, with the end of December fast approaching, each of them decided to fly home to New York, not knowing the surprise they were about to find. Finally, Christmas came, and as you know, sometimes magical things happen around Christmas time that we can only dream of. Sometimes, in fact, all it takes is one Christmas night to change the rest of your life…

Meet Francine and Kevin.
That Christmas night they found each other again, and they soon realized they couldn’t be apart. This Christmas as they start their newlywed journey as husband and wife, and every Christmas to follow, Francine and Kevin will be celebrating that gift that you just can’t buy… The one they found that night in Buffalo: the love of their lives.
It was a beautiful day as the ladies started getting ready…

Francine and Kevin,

From your first email to us – we knew y’all would be a couple we’d want to know, and when you came to our house with yummy sweets and a Christmas ornament, we were blown away. We’ve loved getting to know you all, and your enthusiasm for life, love, and each other has made every time we see you just awesome! We wish you both (and Buddy!) many years of happiness…and of course, a Merry Christmas!  : )

Cheers,

Matt and Ivy

Story from the Bride:

We met 12 years ago through a mutual friend in college. We dated for a few months before going our separate ways- Kevin moved to Phoenix and I moved to Chicago. Five years later we reconnected back in our hometown in Buffalo, NY on Christmas night. There was an immediate connection and we were inseparable from that point forward. We dated long distance until we couldn’t take living so far apart and Kevin made the big move to Chicago. Kevin proposed on a beautiful fall Saturday afternoon as we were getting ready to go to Navy Pier to ride the famous Ferris wheel, something neither of us had done since we lived in Chicago. Kevin initially planned to pop the question at the top of the Ferris wheel but couldn’t wait, dropped down to one knee before we even left our apartment, and asked me to marry him. I was not expecting it so I was totally surprised. Kevin told me how much he loved me (and our dog Buddy), how he wanted us to spend the rest of our lives together, and many other things that soon became a blur. I actually looked at the ring and said “I get to wear that?!” Then, “Yes”. The proposal was perfect, sweet, and simple. We moved to Texas in 2012 and started planning our big day.

Since neither of us are from Texas the majority of our guests traveled here from other places and we wanted them to feel welcome and at home. We decided we wanted a day that felt romantic and cozy, comfortable but not too casual, dressed up but not stuffy. Sky Creek Ranch captured that feeling in every way. From the beautiful outdoor setting to the wood details and floor to ceiling windows inside, we knew from the first moment we visited that we would be married there. For our fall affair we chose plum and ivory colors with touches of gold.

I always thought we would elope to Mexico and get married on a beach. Then we realized all the people who wouldn’t be able to be with us one of the most important days of our lives. So we decided having a wedding closer to home was a better idea. From the day we got engaged we both agreed that the photography was the most important part of the wedding to us and we knew without a doubt we wanted Ivy Weddings to capture our special day. We even chose our date based on when our photographers were available! We couldn’t have done it without the help of our fabulous wedding planner Meaghan. It’s easy to get caught up in all the options out there for your wedding so we made sure we stayed true to who we are and focused on the things we really cared about.

A big part of our budget went to hiring a planner because we really didn’t have time to take on everything ourselves. Another big part of budget was dedicated to our photography which was the most important aspect of the wedding to us. Our photographers made us feel like rockstars and we’re so grateful to have found them. Our popcorn bar was a fun splurge and everyone loved it!

We both agree hands down that our favorite parts of the day were our first look and exchanging our vows that we wrote for each other. We’re so glad our amazing photographers convinced us to do a first look because it really set the tone for the rest of the day. Being able to spend some time together before the ceremony was very intimate and we had a blast driving around in golf carts with our photographers. We kept our vows secret from each other and really had no idea what the other would write. So many people said we would be so nervous, why put more pressure on yourself to say your own vows but we both stood by our decision and couldn’t be happier. I think we were both so excited to share our vows with each other that we didn’t feel any nerves at all. They were romantic and heartfelt and really spoke to who we are as individuals and as a couple. We were more excited about eating our cake than we were about dinner! Overall, our wedding was everything we dreamed of and more. We wish we could go back and do it all over again!

Dallas Wedding Photographers: Heather + Dale | Marie Gabrielle Wedding |

Many young girls dream of the perfect wedding they will have one day. There is a gorgeous dress, the pretty flowers, and all the details that make a fairy tale dream come true. For most girls imagining that wedding day, there’s one detail they will have to wait on until much later: finding out who that special guy will be. But not every fairy tale wedding comes together the same way. Every now and then a fairy tale starts when a girl meets that special guy at the very beginning of the story, when a couple of teenagers start falling for each other and become inseparable. Time keeps going as the story of life is spun around them, and the day finally comes when they write the first chapter of the next volume of life together. When that day finally arrived for these two, through a last-minute turn of the elements, one of the most touching weddings turned even more magical – they got to marry each other twice.

Meet Heather and Dale.

When you see these two together, you might mistake them for a couple of lovebirds on a first date. The giggles, the kisses, the excitement in their eyes when they see each other – only multiplied by the love they’ve grown in a nearly fourteen year long romance. It seems only fitting that the ceremony they had waited so long to have would come twice. How did this happen? A special combination of a lovely outdoor garden, Texas weather, and special vows shared in the close company of only Heather and Dale’s closest friends…

The day started for Heather at Salon Pompeo where the girls got ready.

Right before the bride and groom could exchange their vows, it started to rain.  Knowing that guests, video equipment, photo gear, sound, and speakers, would soon be drenched, the minister sped through the ring exchange and the I Do’s, in what would be the fastest ceremony of the year!

After waiting 13 years for a garden wedding, and having written beautiful vows that were stopped by the rain, the bride and groom were still elated to have tied the knot.

After the ceremony, Heather and Dale, along with their bridal party were rushed off into a side building to avoid the rain. In that unforgettable moment, Marty chose to officiate Heather and Dale’s second wedding. Just the two of them. Surrounded by their closest friends and sharing the vows they had not gotten to say outside in the rain. This was one of the most beautiful ceremonies to date – and their incredibly moving vows? Well, they brought almost everyone in the room to tears.

Heather and Dale,

You guys are truly amazing! We’ve loved getting to know you all, and we won’t ever forget your kindness from the moment we met y’all! You both are perfect for each other. :) We wish you a lifetime of happiness, and wonderful memories!

Cheers,

Matt and Ivy

Story from the Bride:

Dale and I have known each other for a couple of years before we started dating at 17.  There was always a special connection and chemistry between us, and that is what carried us throughout our 13 years together.  Time really does fly when you have so much fun with your first love and best friend!  When it came down to planning our wedding, I knew it had to be an outdoor wedding.  I wanted a shabby chic wedding with soft colors.  Without a doubt the biggest splurges were the venue and the photography.  An extraordinary amount of time and effort was put into this wedding and beautiful pictures are important to capture our special day!
