Brian + Wendy || Scottish Rite Ballroom Wedding

September 23, 2014

Jessica and I were so excited to when we got the first email from Wendy about her wedding. The Westmoreland family has been one of our favorite families to work with. Anyone remember her sister, Bonnie? These are two of the sweetest girls you’ve ever met.

So, a little on Brian and Wendy… They got married at the Scottish Rite Crystal Ballroom in downtown Dallas, and it was beautiful. Events & Experiences did an amazing job with this setup! Huge balloons, a mint themed candy bar, elaborate center pieces. All of this, mixed with the ornate architecture made for a photographer’s dream.

So, quick back story on Wendy’s ‘surprised’ reaction a few rows down. At Bonnie’s (Wendy’s sister) wedding, she wore the sixpence that their mother had worn at her wedding. After the wedding, the sixpence had supposedly been lost, and not only did Wendy think it was her fault, but she wouldn’t get to wear it at her own wedding. Well, it had been found a few months prior to Wendy’s wedding, and they surprised her with it before the ceremony. So, her reaction is a mixture of excitement that she now got to wear it, and relief that she wasn’t the one that lost it!

This family is very special to us, and I am so excited to get to share these photos. Oh, and Westmoreland family… if you’re reading this… When is the barbeque?

Colin + Kirby || Perkins Chapel Wedding

September 23, 2014

Collin + Kirby were married at Perkins Chapel back in June with a killer reception at the Filter Building at White Rock Lake. These two comprise one of the coolest and quirkiest couples SixFourteen has had the pleasure of working with. A little bit of information on Collin… Collin is a connoisseur of fine and fancy beers and hats. I don’t drink at weddings, but this one was tough. Revolver Blood & Honey on tap! And he also had a groomsmen toast before the ceremony, in which he toasted with some sort of aged Dogfish Head beer… Yes, a beer that had been aged. It looked like motor oil when they poured it, but everyone’s face lit up after tasting it! Now some info on Kirby… when Kirby is on the dance floor, she owns that dance floor, and if you are dancing on the same dance floor as Kirby, it is only because she is allowing you to dance. When I initially met Kirby and Collin to discuss their wedding, I recognized her immediately from some awesome dancing photos I had shot at a previous wedding. She is a blast to photograph on the floor because she is so animated and uninhibited, and seems to know every word of every song ever created. Anyways, here are some of my favorites…

Andy + Nikki || Bent Tree Country Club Wedding

September 23, 2014

What do you get when you combine kilts, no underwear, dancing and plenty of alcohol? Well, I’ll let you take a guess at that one (check out photo 56)… Andy and Nikki got married at Bent Tree Country Club in Dallas back in June and it was definitely one of our favorite weddings of the year. Nikki’s family is originally from Scotland, so the day was filled with tradition, Scottish accents, kilts, and of course scotch! Pair that with a couple that is laid back, easy going and crazy about each other, add in Identity Theft Band and what could go wrong!? Seriously… such a good time!

Remember Brandon & Meryl? They got married in downtown Ft. Worth at 809 @ Vickery back in May (yeah, I know. I suck at blogging, blah blah blah, move past it). It was an awesome outdoor ceremony, followed by a Harlem Shake induced reception dance party. I have had the pleasure of working with this bridal party twice now, and these girls are so much fun! Here are some of my favorite shots from the day…

Ryan + Suzanne || Nasher Sculpture Center

July 17, 2014

I can’t say enough good things about Ryan and Suzanne. They were absolutely awesome to work with. And their son, Aaron, is pretty much the coolest little kid on the planet. We started off this day at the Nasher Sculpture Center where we did the first look and then got to walk around the beautiful grounds and take some bride and groom portraits. I had to constantly keep reminding myself that I wasn’t actually shooting Anne Hathaway (trust me… they could be sisters). From there, we went over to Munger Place for the ceremony before heading back to party the rest of the night away at the Nasher. Here is a little glimpse into what was such a crazy fun night!

John & Anh’s San Francisco Engagement Session

July 3, 2014

john anh san francisco destination engagement session sixfourteen photography_0028.jpg

Back in April, I flew out to San Francisco to hang with John and Anh and shoot some engagement photos. This was such a fun day for several reasons. First of all, it was a great way to see and photograph the city. We stopped at Potrero Hill, the Sutro Baths, Sausalito, Pier 7 on the Embarcadero, a couple of beaches, the Golden Gate Bridge, Mill Valley, Muir Woods (although we weren’t able to shoot there). Having the opportunity to shoot engagement photos at a location like this is so much fun since most of the time when we travel, all I say is “I really want to do a shoot here!” I actually got to this time!

It was also fun because I learned that the Chinese food I had been eating my whole life was complete garbage. John and Anh schooled me on some authentic Chinese food and took me to this little hidden gem in the city where I ate way too many dumplings. As a proclaimed Chinese food lover, I was basically on cloud nine (and a little embarrassed to think that I had been living a lie up until this point… A LIE!).

Anyways… anyone want to go to San Francisco?
