Jennifer and Ian are married!

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of photographing Jennifer and Ian's amazing wedding day at the Dallas Marriott Quorum. I loved every minute of their day. It was so full of sentiment and fun. It was a perfect day. Here's their story.
Dallas: Where Dreams Come True was the book on the shelf in the hotel room where Jennifer got ready. I loved watching her dreams come true at her wedding!
 Jennifer's gorgeous Ivory details.
 Ian's personalized cufflinks and his tux.
 Jennifer's bridesmaids had so much fun helping her into her dress. I love their expressions.
Mom helps with the veil.
 Love this!
 A few mirror shots.
 Gorgeous flowers by Bridal Blooms and Creations
 The beautiful bride and handsome groom.
 Jennifer and Ian did a first look in their ceremony room.
 Checking each other out.
 THe first look gave us lots of time to take bride and groom and wedding party photos before the service. We started under the Huppah indoors.
 And then we went outside to a small little patch of greenery and had some fun. The guys showed off their college socks.
 and jumped in the air for me.
 The gorgeous girls.
 Jennifer had seen a photo on Pinterest where the groomsmen were peeking out from behind the we went one better and did it for both guys and girls. Cute!
 The super fun wedding party.
 My favorite.
 Some alone time.
 Before the service they signed a Ketubah. It was sweet because it was just family in the room and the Rabbi had the parents hand over the "marriage contract" to the about to be married couple.
I love mom peeking around to see Ian's reaction. Cute!
 Time for the wedding! You know I love the rings.
 Theirs were engraved on the inside. "I am my beloved's and my beloved is mine." How beautiful.
 A few ceremony details.
 Now let's get married!
 Love seeing the family all under the Huppah.
 So cute!
 The kiss and the smiles afterward.
One last shot under the Huppah.
So the staff at the hotel flipped the ballroom from ceremony to reception in about an hour. Amazing!
 A few pretty in pink reception details.
 The grand entrance through a tunnel of bridesmaids and groomsmen.
 And right into the Hora.
 So much fun!
 They had a montage and I loved watching their facial expressions from tears to laughter.
 First dance.
 The DJ had all the wedding party and family come out an circle the couple as they finished their first dance.
 Somehow it ended up with all the parents on either side of them :) Love that.
Dad's toast.
Father Daughter dance. I love love love the way her dad looks at her and how happy he is for her. Perfection.
 Mother Son dance. She's so proud of him...I can see it in her look.
 There's nothing better then just a little icing on the nose.
 They had a great photo booth.
 and a fun party all night.
 Love the bridemaids' dance.
 A kiss for mom.
 Look at my ring...we are MARRIED! Such a cute little moment.
 They are all MARRIED!
 The dance floor was packed all night.
 Last dance and I love the way Ian looks at his wife. So much love in that look.
 And the party ended with a group hug. Love!
 Congratulations Jennifer and Ian!
