Courtney + Adam

What started off as a flat tire in a parking garage ended up in wedded bliss. To all you nonbelievers, trust me — love can happen when you least expect it! I had the great fortune of getting to know Courtney and Adam over the past year while we did the engagement and bridal sessions together.  I was so happy to see them finally tie the knot, although it was bittersweet since I knew that meant our time together had finally come to an end. That is, until they decide to start a family and then we can start talking about doing maternity and newborn photos — no pressure! ;) The ever-talented N’Yoka Coleman with Soiree Wedding and Event Production designed their elegant, “wedding weekend in the Hamptons meets an English tea garden” styled wedding. From Courtney’s classic lace gown to the dining tents with crystal chandeliers, every detail was well thought of and beautifully executed. I should mention that the highlight of the evening was one that no one could’ve planned for — an impromptu jam session by the father of the bride! Anyone who wasn’t on the dance floor before was definitely up and out of their seats when he jumped on the drum set. The crowd went CRAZY!! Talk about a memorable evening! Congratulations Courtney and Adam, here’s to never having to change a flat tire by yourself ever again!

I have absolutely loved working with Courtney. She’s beautiful and easy going and all the emails she sends me are always  full of happy words and exclamation marks! The blog post from their wedding is coming up next but I wanted to go ahead and share with you some of my favorites from her bridal session.

Tammy + Ronald

Tammy and Ronald found me through their sister-in-law An, whose wedding happened to be one of the very first ones I photographed! Although that wasn’t too long ago, it’s amazing to me just how far I’ve come since then. The morning started off with a traditional tea ceremony at Ronald’s home in Arlington, Texas. For those who aren’t familar with a Chinese tea ceremony, the bride and groom offer cups to tea to the elders as a sign of respect and in return their marriage is blessed with gifts of jewelry and in most cases, lucky red envelopes filled with money! We finished off the night at the W Hotel. I love their modern hotel rooms — Tammy’s getting ready photos  are probably one of my favorites by far! Congratulations to the both of you!
