I wasn’t able to shoot Jennifer’s wedding because I was actually IN her wedding a whole 11 days before I had my son! But I did have the honor of shooting her bridal portraits at her gorgeous Mediterranean style wedding venue in Colleyville. Jennifer had quite a large wedding and had a hard time finding a venue in the Fort Worth area that would accommodate more than 200 people. Piazza In The Village did that and more! She was even able to have her rehearsal dinner there! Everyone was so helpful from day one assisting her with everything and really just helping to take a lot of the headache out of wedding planning for her. Jennifer’s bridal portraits are a perfect example of just how helpful it can be to get all dolled up in your wedding dress with your hair and makeup done. If you look closely at the photos you’ll see they were shot on two different days. After wearing her dress the first day it really felt like it needed to be taken in a little more. Had she not done bridal portraits before hand, she might have ended up having to tug at her dress all day on her wedding day to make sure it stayed up! See, bridal portraits are just as practical as they are fun! When we were shopping for her wedding dress, she ended up falling in love with the very first gown she tried on! Don’t worry, we didn’t let her buy it without trying on a bunch of other gowns first. There were lots of great gowns, but none that we could hear her gasping over before she was even all the way zipped up! She was looking for something classic, formal, and elegant and she got that and so much more with this dress with it’s trumpet silhouette, scalloped lace details, sweetheart neckline, and beaded belt ! It’s by Kathy Ireland for Mon Cheri and she found it with the help of the ladies at Bliss Bridal in Fort Worth.
