Lauren ♥ Chart: A Love Story Made in Texas

Full disclosure: this bride and I still text on a regular basis, and I’m basically obsessed with her. Yeah, yeah, yeah, Chart’s pretty wonderful and all. But LAUREN. She is perfection. Her smile is light-up-the-room-contagious, she’s generous and sincere as they come, and her charismatic magnetism is matched only by her intellect. Sorry y’all, she’s officially TAKEN!

Now, about this wedding…we’ll think of The Westcotts every time we go to the Texas State Fair. “Why,” you ask? “What an unusual association to make,” you think? Well, listen to this. For their wedding reception, Lauren and Chart wanted to give their guests a taste of Texas. So they did the only natural thing: they brought the Texas State Fair into the lobby of the Ritz-Carlton Dallas! Carnival wheel, food stands, funnel cakes, a stilt walker, and the crowning jewel: a replica of the one and only Big Tex, LED style.

Enjoy this unique reception, these huge smiles, and this lovely bride, who’s now become a dear, dear friend.

Elizabeth ♥ Jake • A Classy Affair at the Fort Worth Modern

LOVE these two. And the only reason we got to photograph their wedding is because the badass who WOULD have photographed it is one of the groom’s best friends (Grant Daniels, anyone?). So we’ll take being the backup option if it means getting to photograph people like Elizabeth and Jake - these kind, warm souls who were simply delightful. Thanks for having us, Smiths! It was a scorching, sweaty day, and we LOVED IT. And thanks for setting them up with us, Grant. We’re all friends now, k? K.

Alyssa ♥ Patrick • A Rad Cabo Destination Wedding With Dia de los Muertos Touches

You know you have superb clients when they have welcome bags for the photographers…and mainly when they make sure you leave their wedding with pockets brimming with mini tequila bottles. That’s the two fantastic humans rocking out up there.

DISCLAIMER: There are so. many. photos. When you have the pleasure of joining your clients to photograph a sunset cruise to the Cabo arches, a rehearsal dinner with a view, a tequila-infused wedding day, a hair-of-the-dog pool party, and an adios dinner, let’s just say that I put this one off for a while because I knew it would be a BEAST to share with you. But seeing as we’re having dinner with these two on Friday, AND seeing as we could all use a little Cabo on these December days, I do believe it is time.

So enjoy these two and their absolute blast of a wedding weekend! The Reagans are the most golden of the gold, and after spending four straight days with them, we only want more. I mean, Patrick the Fashionisto gives Jude Law a run for his money, and he gifts custom Nike sneakers like they’re candy…still waiting for my pair, though (did that work, Patrick?). Alyssa the Goddess is the quiet type who only smiles when she really means it, and it makes you feel so happy when she smiles at you. Together, these two are among the most generous and kind people you’ll meet. This one is definitely a case of marrying-the-right-person since a cloudy cold front blew in on the wedding day, leaving us all freezing cold and disheveled by wind, and you’d never know it by the looks on these faces.

To the Reagans, thank you for the amazing weekend. We were SO HAPPY to be there and are excited for dinner! XOXO
