Shannon + Brian

Posted on: No Comments

It’s not very often that we get to travel to destination weddings for our shoots so this one was quite a sight to see! Shannon and Brian, both Texans, decided to travel to Colorado for a mountain-side wedding in Beaver Creek at Beano’s Cabin. Turquoise Video Productions was the only DFW vendor to travel with them while Coloradans, Mark and Michele with In Photography, captured Shannon and Brian’s day.  Planning a destination wedding is not easy and Carolyn with Artisan Events was their hero from the start to finish. Brian, as a fabulous chef, planned the meals for both the rehearsal dinner and the reception, the first of which included a whole roasted pig! Sugar in Breckenridge, CO crafted their beautiful cake and the couple danced their night away from the slopes of the rocky mountains. Congrats and what a beautiful night for Shannon and Brian!

Emma + Tony

This past October we filmed Emma and Tony’s wedding. Emma works for Kay Watson, one of our favorite wedding planners who also planned their event, so we were very excited to capture Emma and Tony’s special day! Their beautiful and unique ceremony took place under the gorgeous gazebo outside of Arlington Hall at Lee Park. Emma waltzed down he isle in her elegant and vintage chic dress accompanied by the Gyro’s String Quartet and floral designs by Garden Gate Floral. Brittany Jones did Emma’s stunning hair and make-up and Ben Q. Photography was there to capture this beautiful couple – always fun to work side-by-side with Ben and Crys. Their smoothly frosted cake came from Frosted Art and guests celebrated this handsome couple with music from the Ice House Band and lighting by Simply Music Events. Congrats to Emma and Tony!

Abby and Kris were married on a pretty Sunday morning in Krum, Texas at the amazing Milestone Mansion. They met at a sushi restaurant where they both happened to be picking up to go orders! The rest is history. Abby’s elegant dress along with make-up and hair by Angie Williams fit right in with the beautiful pastel floral arrangements from Coco Fleur Events. Kris and his groomsmen added a unique touch to their wedding attire which incorporated super hero socks for all the men in the wedding party! Their dainty cake came from Candy Haven and Jamie Huffman Photography captured this amazing day for them. This romantic wedding and reception concluded with the two driving off in a charming white 1941 vintage Packard. Best wishes to Abby and Kris! And for everyone ordering sushi in the near future, be mindful of who you may bump into!

Shelby + Blake

Shelby and Blake bleed gold and green. This pair of Baylor bears had their wedding over the summer but for an August wedding it wasn’t too swelteringly hot. Shelby got her gorgeous dress from the same boutique featured in popular TV show, Say Yes to the Dress, and it’s actually a light shade of blush! One of our favorite photographers, Tracy Autem captured their amazing day and the entire event, which incorporated Baylor chic gold and green confetti was planned by Extraordinary Evens and Design. Lush Couture Floral provided lovely floral arrangements for the candlelit ceremony at the Broadway Baptist Church, which was followed by a reception at the always fabulous, Fort Worth Club, where guests danced the night away to the Drywater Band. Wishing the best to this bear couple that even included a “sic’em” hand sign in their ceremony!

Christal + Jack

Here’s a highlight from the beautiful wedding of our clients Christal and Jack! These two were married at the First Presbyterian Church in Fort Worth and Christal glided down the aisle in a beautiful lace sleeved dress from De Me Fille with her make up done by Tish Whitworth and hair done by Nici Sabine. Before the ceremony, their close friend sang a beautiful acoustic rendition of “Amazing Grace”. The lively and hopping reception took place at the Ashton Depot, a chic venue which the couple added a rustic touch to with antler and rope décor (The bride even had cowboy boots under her dress)! The beautiful floral for the event was done by Blossoms on the Bricks and one of our favorite bands, Trey and the Tritones, provided some grooving entertainment for this couple’s wedding. Crème de la Crème made yet another appearance on the cake front and the couple rode away in a town car provided by Fort Worth LX Limo. The whole event was photographed by Tyler Schmitt with Mill Photo Studio. What a beautiful and fun wedding to be a part of! Congrats to Christal and Jack!

Katie + Nick

We had such a fun time filming this New Year’s Eve wedding for Katie and Nick, who are friends with another couple who’s wedding we shot in September, Nicole and Ryan! Planned by Amanda Davis with Events by Kristin, this spectacular wedding was filled with a beautiful couple and a lot of confetti to welcome the new year and Katie and Nick’s new life together! The lovely ceremony took place at the St. Mark Evangelist Church in Plano with the flashy and exciting reception that followed at the Marriott at Legacy Town Center. The bridesmaids’ sparkly, sequined dresses fit right in with this dazzling new years celebration! Brian Prescott DJ’d the fun-filled night and Holly Viles Design supplied the beautiful floral décor. Although the massive balloons from the reception popped and fell down and became more like beach balls surfing the dance floor, it was so much fun to celebrate with Katie and Nick, who’s special day was photographed by Margot Landon Photography! Congrats to you two!!

If you’re looking for a Texas wedding without a single guest from Texas and some sweet Australian accents then look no further! Shot and edited by our associate, Justin, Rachael and Abdel’s gorgeous wedding took place at the Oak Water Ranch in Granbury, Texas, a venue we love and get to work at often. Rachael had just moved to Texas only weeks before the wedding but she looked stunning at this very Texas venue with her hair and makeup done by the team at Something You Makeup, who we also get to work with a lot! We Plus You Studios did their floral and their elegant cake came from a bakery we see often in our shoots, Sugar Bee Sweets Bakery! The reception featured one of our favorite DJ’s, Randy Ro and catering by Oliver’s Fine Foods. This pair of Doctor’s had a splendid and classy wedding planned by Amanda with Events By Kristin who always does an amazing job. Feather and Twine Photography captured their big day. We are so happy to have worked on this sweet and unique couple’s wedding! Congratulations to Rachael and Abdel!

Amanda + John

Although we’re horned frogs, we loved this FAB Texas Tech couple! They are so cute together and have the coolest family and friends. We truly enjoyed getting to know Amanda and John! Their wedding was spectacular, stylish, and classy with a splash of that Texas Tech Red Raider pride. Through behind the scenes shots of Amanda’s gorgeous Bliss dress, we captured the sweet bride and groom just moments before Amanda walked down the aisle at Robert Carr Chapel and they both said “I do.” Amanda’s dress was so stunning that she was featured in this Bliss Bridal Salon Commercial! Amanda looked radiant with her make-up done by Jennifer Trotter as she glided down her rose petal-lined aisle in front of friends and family. The festive reception, held at City Club Fort Worth, was a party complete with sunglasses (stamped with their wedding hashtag, #SPOFEST2014), great stories from the best man and maid of honor, and great music from DJ Nate Nelson with LeForce EntertainmentBridal Blooms did their lovely floral arrangements. We thoroughly enjoyed working with Amanda and John whose special day was photographed by the ever talented and fun Tracy Autem. Here’s to an incredibly happy life for this wonderful Red Raider couple!

Cammy + Matt

Cammy and Matt had a beautiful wedding ceremony on SMU’s campus at Perkins Chapel followed by a Gatsby-inspired reception at the Crescent Club in uptown Dallas. They were so fun to film and we were also able to see some old clients (Abby and Jeff) while we were there! Cammy looked incredibly gorgeous with her hair and makeup done by Halo Brides. Their amazing event coordinator, florist, and one of our favorite people to work with was Tami Winn. And their photographer whom we have the pleasure of working with often was Tracy Autem! After the beautiful ceremony, their lovely and exciting reception featured lighting from Beyond and music from The Project Band, all MC’d by Andy Austin. Everyone enjoyed their artsy, 20’s inspired cakes, which were done by another one of our favorite vendors of all time, Crème de la Crème! Of course this Gatsby wedding wouldn’t be complete without a drive off into this sweet couple’s new life in a white Rolls Royce from Romantic Remembrances! Such a beautiful wedding to capture! Wishing the best to Cammy and Matt!

Chika + Chinedu

Posted on: No Comments

We were very excited when we were approached by Chika and Chinedu, having filmed her brother Chima’s wedding years before. It was great to see the Egwagu family again! This couple has quite a history; their families have known each other since they migrated from Nigeria, West Africa and the two grew up as close family friends. It wasn’t until after college that they decided to take their friendship to the next level. Their romance bloomed quickly and it wasn’t long before Chinedu proposed at an Allen Stone concert! This vibrant couple wanted their wedding to reflect their personalities, culture and religion and after over a year of planning with Nosa Oyegun of Elegant Nuptials and Events, it was surely a night to be remembered! The gorgeous ceremony was held at Lover’s Lane United Methodist Church, and they celebrated their love and faith in front of an incredible gathering of family and friends, all 450 of them! The bride looked flawless in her fitted gown with intricate ruffled detailing on the bottom from Stardust Celebrations. Their elaborate reception was held at the Four Seasons Resort Dallas at Las Colinas and was full of Nigerian tradition and rituals. The ballroom was glowing with the light of thousands of candles, which added to the luxury of the purple shades throughout the decor. The show stopper of the reception was the majestic stage and custom dance floor which was packed with their guests long into the night! This couple is clearly cherished by their friends and family, and we know that they are destined to have a long and happy marriage! This gorgeous wedding was recently featured in Brides of North Texas Magazine.

Lauren + Thomas

Posted on: No Comments

This couple’s story began during their time at Ole Miss, Lauren, a sweet girl from Texas and Thomas, a southern boy from Georgia… They were meant to be from the start! Every detail of this wedding weekend was classy, elegant, and incredibly Southern! We captured Lauren’s reveal of her flawless lace Stella wedding dress to her two brothers right before they walked her down the aisle at Christ the King Catholic Church, both adorable and moving moments! Naturally, the gorgeous turquoise color of the wall behind the alter with the gold details caught our eye, and was an incredible backdrop for a touching ceremony. The reception at the Warwick Hotel was absolutely stunning! The gold, pink, and white details throughout the tablescapes and floral arrangements (by FD2 Custom Floral), were perfection. We especially liked the abundance of small flower arrangements in Mercury Glass vases along the Bridal Party’s table at the reception. The reception also had some fun southern details sprinkled in, including the Ole Miss Oil Rig groom’s cake and hunting inspired camo koozie! The mother of the Bride, Debbie, gave the sweetest speech at the reception before the dance party began. The S’mores Bar was a super fun and unique touch! Who could resist a bite sized s’more with a marshmallow freshly melted by a blow torch?? We were so happy to work with this sweet, cheerful couple and wish them all the happiness in the world!

Abby + Jeff

Posted on: No Comments

Abby and Jeff got married on a perfect April day in Fort Worth at TCU’s Robert Carr Chapel, a classic location for a Horned Frog! The bride wore a gorgeous one-shoulder Anna Maier Ulla-Maija Couture gown with delicate hand cut floral detailing. She looked flawless from her chic updo to her Jimmy Choos! As a fun personal touch, Abby and Jeff brought their sweet doggie to the chapel to be a part of the their special day. After walking down the aisle decorated with classic white hydrangeas, the couple said I Do in a romantic ceremony surrounded by family and friends. The reception was held at the Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth, an upscale and unique venue that promises the most memorable wedding photos among the museum’s art and architecture.  The shot from photographer Tracy Autem of Abby and Jeff in from of The Modern’s iconic “The Book with Wings” is truly breath taking. The couple admits that one of the most memorable moments of the night was when they walked down the modern’s “catwalk” to the reception after being introduced as Mr and Mrs. Storm. A Stylish Soiree did an incredible job of taking care of the venue decor and florals; we were blown away by crisp white and gold tablescapes, gorgeous floral centerpieces, and the cake, from Sugar Bee Sweets, that stood a glorious 5 layers and was draped in matching flowers! We enjoyed capturing every moment of this couple’s big day, especially the fun they had on the dance floor groovin’ to the IDT Band! We hope you enjoy!

Bonnie + Max

Bonnie and Max had a beautiful spring wedding at the Ashton Depot in Fort Worth Texas. During their courtyard ceremony, the bride and groom exchanged vows they had each written, a personal touch that guarantees there won’t be a dry eye in the house! Kimberly Rhodes of Hitched Events pulled the entire event together in her usual fabulous way! The florals for both the ceremony and the reception were absolutely gorgeous! Neutral colors were mixed with pinks throughout the wedding flowers and tablescapes to create a classic and elegant look. We loved the fun addition of the pink sequined tablecloth; it added just the right amount of glitz to the evening! And Mars Hill rocked the party in their usual fashion.  This couple clearly had so much love and support from their friends and family and we wish them many many years of love and happiness!

Kristen + Adam

Posted on: No Comments

We were absolutely thrilled when this bride booked us for her wedding because we can now say that we have filmed the weddings of all three of the Caldwell Siblings: Lauren, Mark and now Kristen! Kristen, the ‘baby’ of the Caldwell  family, married Adam Hamilton at Perkins Chapel at SMU on a beautiful spring day. She looked flawless from head to toe, we especially loved the petal-like detailing on the bottom of her wedding dress! Fabulous Fete did an incredible job decorating Arlington Hall at Lee Park for the reception – the tablescapes were so glamorous and the lighting set the mood for a magical evening! Its always a treat when a bride and groom books Good Question Band because they make sure that the dance floor the place to be! One of our favorite moments from this wedding was when Adam and Kristen got on stage with the band and rocked out with a guitar and tambourine! We love when a couple lets loose!

It was so much fun to be reunited with the Caldwell family for a third time! Its always great to catch up with our clients, especially on the dance floor!  Kristen’s older sister Lauren, used the same venues (Perkins Chapel and Arlington Hall) for her wedding a few years ago, and it was remarkable how unique each of their weddings turned out! Kristen’s brother Mark Caldwell was married last year to Olympian Gold Medalist, Carly Patterson, and their wedding highlight turned out to be one of our favorites of the year! Thank you Larry and Patricia for trusting all of your children’s big days to us!

Lauren and Keith

Posted on: No Comments

This might be one of our favorite projects of the year! Lauren and Keith have a style all their own and displayed it beautifully at their wedding held in early November! Their ceremony was held at the picturesque University Christian Church closed to TCU, where the couple met. The gorgeous reception was held at The Ashton Depot, and the decor was breathtaking and flawless! We loved the sequined backdrop to the stage where a string quartet played during cocktail hour, and a local musician played acoustically during their reception. Vintage details were found not only throughout the wedding decor, but also in the Bride’s wedding dress (from Allure Couture), wedding ring (designed by Megan Thorne) and her Bridal Portraits. This couple really wanted a cool, different and unique wedding video. Keith loved the idea of stop-motion artistry, so we took on his challenge! We think it turned out super fun and we loved getting to work with these music lover’s unique song selections! We shot this highlight using a Canon 5D Mark III with a Canon remote timer. Enjoy!

Julie and Ish

Posted on: No Comments

This was a flawless fall wedding from start to finish! From the moment Julie and Ish set eyes on each other during their ‘First Look’ at the gorgeous Dallas Arboretum, this couple lit up and beamed with joy continuously throughout the evening. I don’t think there was a single moment all night where they weren’t smiling at each other, which makes our job effortless! They said ‘I Do’ outside the tranquil Lay Ornamental Gardens at sunset, just as Julie had always imagined her wedding day.  The reception decor was complete with white pumpkins and other fall details bathed in candlelight. Their first dance under a gorgeous draped tent was to “At Last”, a wedding classic that was beautifully sung by a close friend. We loved capturing moments of them dancing the night away with close friends (and fun feather boas)! This couple was such a joy to work with and we know they have a lifetime of happiness ahead!

Irene and JD – Their Love Story

Happy 1 month Anniversary to Irene and JD!!

Take a look at these gorgeous Newlyweds’ Love Story and Slideshow! Irene and JD met during their time at TCU and JD proposed on campus at Frog Fountain, so we we knew there couldn’t be a more perfect place to film their Love Story! These lovebirds were so fun to film and edit, and we are excited to start working on their wedding footage soon!

Lauren and Paul

Posted on: No Comments

What a memorable wedding! Although Lauren and Paul rehearsed their vows among the beautiful Crepe Myrtles of the Dallas Arboretum, Mother Nature had a different idea for where she wanted them to say “I Do”.  Over night, a storm rolled in and forced Rachel Burt and her team at As You Wish… to make some alterations to their plans for the big day! Hours before the wedding, a tent went up over the reception site, located on the porch of the DeGolyer House and a few last minute details were added, including umbrellas that were given to guests as very useful party favors! After walking through the rain to see his beautiful Bride for the “First Look”, Paul and Lauren said ‘I Do’ with heavy rain and lightning as the backdrop, but this couple certainly didn’t let the rain interfere with their blissful day!! We were very touched by how sweet this couple was, and how often they were moved to tears (especially Paul!). The storm had passed by the time everyone hit the dance floor, and the evening ended flawlessly with Lauren and Paul exiting into a vintage car with only rose petals falling on their heads. They say rain on your wedding day is Good Luck, and we wish Lauren and Paul nothing but the best!
