A couple of very fun and creative Dallas Texas Grooms great finds I found as I wandered into a fabulous store on Mckinney Ave in Dallas called Warehaus. The owner Patrick Ware was in and could not have been more hospitable! A very cool men’s store with a great edgy vibe. I found two items that were of particular interest for my Grooms and Groomsmen and would make super unique touches for mens wedding fashion photography. First was the amazing handcrafted wooden bow ties that are styled with both fabrics and leather. They are crafted in a high quality and very easy for use. Perfect for the guy that has a hard time tying a tie. These come in many different looks that can be used for an elegant affair to a casual dinner. Very fresh!

The second great find – a one of a kind pair of glasses. Not any old sunglasses, but frames made of wood called Shwood Sunglasses – These are authentic and chic and are available in many different styles. Also made for woman but for men, this would be such a fun grooms gift. These are a natural handcrafted wood with a veneer finish with a 100% UVA/UVB protection Carl Zeiss Lenses which were imported from Italy. Can’t go wrong with this smart look.
As a professional wedding and event photographer in the Dallas Texas area – I want to share fantastic finds with my bridal couples and help to create a very unique and special photography experience. Keep posted and please comment on my blog. I love to hear your thoughts.

Take a look at Sarah and Ryan’s Sneak peak from last weeks wedding. A super sweet couple that have the most adorable little boy that was their ring bearer at 1 years old. (Clearly this cutie pie got his stunning blue eyes from his mommy – bride Sarah).
Sarah and Ryan went to college together and have been together since our senior year. 4 years 🙂 Ryan proposed to Sarah at the Hanover Street Chophouse in Manchester NH. The desert menu came out and one of the deserts was named the sarah collection. The description was a super sweet letter and asked her to marry him at the bottom!
The wedding was held at their St. Elizabeth Seton church and followed by a beautiful reception at the Wentworth by the Sea in New Castle NH. The boats and scenery at Wentworth was just so pretty and the sunset was perfect. Ryan and Sarah planned their reception with perfect details that included beautiful pink, greens and cream accents throughout. Their cake was a stunner – take a look at some of these pictures to see for yourself.
Thanks so much Sarah and Ryan for having Relive Photography at your beautiful wedding!
Here are the great vendors that participated to make this wedding perfect:

Beautiful home Vintage backyard wedding ceremony for Chris and Janna started this event off just right. Janna was so pretty and reminded me of a ballerina in a vintage way! So sweet and elegant in her bird cage veil… Chris was dapper and smart looking in his light tan colors and blue vintage Mustang as a backdrop and of course his ride to the venue. Chris escorted his brand new bride in his 1968 blue Mustang in style. Amazing photography opportunity to be able witness to Chris and Janna’s amazing day. The venue was XO on Elm in Manchester NH and the vibe for the night was an all night cocktail hour/dinner. This was a wonderful relaxed family and friend oriented wedding. I love this style of wedding that is all about love. Congratulations Janna and Chris.

Turn a rainy wedding day into an artistic photography Trash your Dress Day. This couple had selected an amazing location for their wedding nuptials. The day of their wedding had rained and the stunning views that we had hoped to take advantage of on their wedding day were hidden by thick fog. So, when all else fails we found a way around that! Rachael and Chris had a blast at the Vermont’s fairytale legendary location of Trapp Family lodge. After climbing the mountain behind the lodge we came to a stunning old chapel that was perfect for this very occasion. We started our photography at the chapel and worked our way down to the landscape overlooking the grand mountains that surrounded the lodge. Spectacular spot. Wow. Here are some samples from this great photography day shoot. Thanks for having me back Rachel and Chris.

Adam and Nicole were married at a beautiful bed and breakfast (B and B) in Woodstock Vermont. Woodstock is a great little town with amazing personality and a sweet location for this wedding. Nicole was so pretty and Adam so handsome – They had a gathering of immediate family and friends for this wonderful day. They wanted a casual, country, vermont vibe, where they could enjoy each-others families and time. What made it unique is the size of the gathering and had accomplished just that. I loved being there and experiencing this wonderful wedding day. Congratulations Adam and Nicole – I hope that you love your wedding day photography.

A wedding day filled with family and love – Ron and Cindy exchange vows and witnessed by their six grown children. Ron has two daughters and one son, and Cindy has two sons and one daughter. I was so thrilled to be a part of this wedding and to see these two blended families come together as one. It was clear to me that both Ron and Cindy were very close to their kids and made them a huge part of the day. Each one was addressed during the ceremony and with lots of happy tears were brought together and welcomed by their new step parents.
The bride and groom and their kids got ready at the beautiful Hyatt Hotel in Newport RI. Cindy and Ron had their first look overlooking the yachts and bridge parked outside of the Hyatt. From their we got these two married and joined their reception at Belle Mer. Soft pretty yellow and white accents filled the room and made a fabulous party for everyone to enjoy. Thank you Ron and Cindy for having me as your photographer for your family wedding event. Congratulations.

I asked them “How did you meet and how long was the courtship”?- In October 2007, they met at a late night diner where Adam was working. Debra’s best friend Cheech and her decided to grab a late night meal (by the way, Cheech is an amazing singer that I photographed singing to the bride as a surprise treat) after a night of dancing. She saw Adam out of the corner of my eye and noticed that he kept giving me the “stare”. So she stared back! He bee-lined for her table and started to talk to her. Debra told him that he wouldn’t like her because she is a nerd and plays dorky games like World of Warcraft. Low and behold, he liked all the nerdy stuff she liked! Many raid nights later, here they are…happy and in love
Debra and Adam have the connection that is absolutely visible. The love exuded throughout their entire luxury wedding day. Bold and beautiful with Red accents and studded shoes Debra said I DO! Adam wore his custom designed sneakers which read “Game Over” on the back heals. Very clever by the way! Game is just starting for these two though. They are a special couple that I hope to call friends for many years. Thanks for having me Debra and Adam. Congratulations to you both.

How and Where did you get engaged- Adam surprised me one day when I came home from work. He was looking at awesome tension rings on the internet. He said, “What do you think-” I said that they looked awesome. He goes “We are getting married” I said “Awesome”. We went ring shopping and I refused to wear the ring until he actually asked me. So, in a parking garage on Washington Street in downtown Boston, he finally asked, and I said yes. The end.
