With all the crazy Spring weather we had been having, Jen and Daley lucked out with the most perfect day for an outdoor wedding at one of Fort Worth’s hidden gem wedding venues, Art Space 111. The space has this amazing mixture of contemporary modern gallery space with lush green space gardens right on the way out of the downtown of a great city.
I spotted Jen’s Dad peering out the door as we were about to start a few portraits, I knew he hadn’t seen her yet and motioned for him to come out and enjoy this moment with his daughter. When a Dad sees his daughter the first time is one my favorite moments of weddings. It’s just special.
Jen was just relaxed and gorgeous in her Watters gown.
We always photograph the perfectly posed portraits, but the favorite moments are always the ones that happen in between!
These moments with the parents right before the ceremony were too sweet! They were all chatting with Jen about how perfect each of the other children were for their children. Jen was pretty much just standing there smiling.
The bride with her two Dads!
Daley wasn’t the most comfortable person in front of the camera, but wow, doesn’t he look handsome? He was so filled with excitement… there is a youthfulness about him that I can see Jen is totally drawn to!
When Jen and Daley had their First Look of each other!
Almost go time!
I always love the look on parents’ faces during the ceremony.
HILARIOUS moment when Jen and Daley couldn’t get the candles to stay lit and just decided to fake their unity candle lighting during the ceremony! I think the families had already shown plenty of unity and was so happy they didn’t fuss for too long! Just shows their relaxed nature and sense of humor!
It’s always fun to grab a quick picture of all the guests in attendance.
I’m not biased towards father-daughter moments. This father-son moment was pretty cool too!
Floral designer Kate Foley
did an amazing job on the design for the reception with the help of Celebration Event Rentals
, it was the perfect mix of romance and nature.
I loved the birch covered containers and the lace was reminiscent of the bride’s gown.
Yep, this little hideaway is right on the edge of Downtown!
No wedding cake! It was perfect little personal pies from All in Good Taste Catering
. Along with the most delish Italian family style dinner. The best cross between a sit down dinner and a buffet. Food was brough to each table family style where guest could then serve themselves the perfect portion.
There were so many laughs. So much joy.
This cutie just killed me! So grown up. Probably first pair of heels and first time at the bar. She was on her alone and rocking it ordering her soda!
Daley and his Mom weren’t the slow dancing type! Their special dance was so much fun and showed off their personality.
Not stopping at Pie, there were S’mores!!! Probably my favorite detail of this wedding. Such a great idea and gave everyone a space away from the music to hang out. Jen’s Dad told me she has loved s’mores since she was a little girl. What a fun way to make your wedding personal.
