Nicole and Nate Wood| Private Residence in Double Oak, TX

Nicole and Nate were wed outside in the back of a private residence in Double Oak, Texas May 4, 2019. It was an intimate and glamorous wedding full of good food, friends and fancy dance moves. I had the privilege of taking photos of the special occasion.

Nicole and her girls got ready at a different location, a friend’s house, and there was such an exciting vibe. All the girls in the wedding party wore matching robes with their names across their backs. Later Nicole wore her blush colored wedding dress, and looked so incredible. After her mother helped her button up her dress, Nicole’s mother presented her with a special gift; her grandmother’s ring.

Nate got ready at the ceremony location in Flower Mound with his boys. He wore a grey suit with a dark navy blue tie, and looked really dapper.

The ceremony was held in the backyard of the beautiful home next to a gorgeous swimming pool and garden. The ceremony area was simple, natural, and beautiful underneath the bright sunny skies. The ceremony was full of smiles, giggles and excited hand squeezes.

After the ceremony, we stayed at the ceremony area for portrait photos, which is such a great time for the newly married couple to have some time to let it sink in. Then the couple mingled with their guests, which was the perfect time for me to get candid photos. I got some really fun guest photos as everyone was so much fun and loved having their photo taken – especially after a few gins! The weather was all sunshine and blue skies, it was a beautiful day.

Nicole and Nate chose to have their wedding reception underneath a rental tent outside to fit all their guests and keep the atmosphere fun and relaxed. The couple had music and cocktails for their guests, and everyone had so much fun taking turns with the photo camper!

The newly weds had heartfelt and occasionally hilarious speeches after dinner made by the best man and maid of honor; the father of the bride shared a word or two as well. The cake was so good the couple decided to let each other try the cake with their nose, chin and forehead as well!

Guests young and mature danced and sang all night long – it was a night to remember for sure! One of the guests even insisted on taking a photo of me – that was definitely a first for me! I would say Nicole and Nate’s glamorous backyard wedding was a success and I’m so honored to have captured their special day.

Madison and Ruben Alaniz | The Laurels in Beaumont, Texas

Madison and Ruben got married at an elegant plantation style venue on March 23, 2019 in Beaumont, Texas. The couple went with a stunningly dark and moody floral and decor for their wedding day. In the beginning, the two lovebirds actually went to the same high school, but when Ruben came home from the navy, fate brought them together again.

Madison got ready upstairs in the venue with friends and family, and there was such an exciting vibe. She wore a smooth fitted dress, and looked so incredible. Ruben and his boys got ready downstairs underneath where the pretty women were getting ready. He wore everything black; shirt, jacket, bow-tie and shoes.

The ceremony took place on the other end of the Laurels’ venue. The ceremony area was filled with the most important people in the couple’s lives. Pair by pair the bridesmaids and groomsmen made their way down the aisle. The couple’s daughters had the honor of being the flower girls. When it was the bride’s turn, everyone stood when they saw her. The groom smiled while tears sneaked down his cheeks. The lovebirds wrote their own vows and promised each other forever. It was a special moment when Madison’s son had the honor of holding Ruben’s ring. It was a moving ceremony.

After the first kiss, the newly weds made their way outside and were greeted seconds later by their wedding party. Everyone took photos in front of the Laurel’s house. The couple then mingled with their guests, which was the perfect time for us to get candid video clips of everyone. We got perfect video of guests taking shots, dancing and grabbing some rears underneath the hanging lights outside! The weather was calm and it was a beautiful night.

For the reception, the best man and maid of honor made a toast to Mr. & Mrs. Alaniz. Madison was surprised by a special strip tease from Ruben – which made the crowd blush and holler! Later as the music began to get louder and faster, the bride pulled in friends from all around to join her in the middle of the dance floor. Guests danced and sang out loud. As more people met in the middle, Ruben accompanied his new wife under the colored lights.

The night ended with all of Madison and Ruben’s loved ones lined up outside the venue. They each held a sparkler and cheered as the newly weds made their way down their own aisle of sparklers. Before they made it to their vehicle, Madison was swept off her feet by her new husband. The couple gave each other a kiss for the pictures and drove off into the night.

On March 21st, during a sunny Thursday afternoon, Alicia and James got married at the lovely River Road Chateau, which is a Texas chic venue in Anna. Skys the Limit Production captured the couple’s perfect day on video.

The ceremony was a beautiful service under the venue’s iconic chandelier, and the reception was held in the rustic ballroom, and it was a plum and spring inspired wedding. Mr. & Mrs. Bowles had lots of cake in the afternoon, and an intimate family dinner in the evening, and they finished off the night with lots of dancing.

Katie and Bryston Schafer | The SPRINGS Event Venue in Terrell, Texas

Katie and Bryston were wed March 9, 2019 at the SPRINGS Poetry Hall in Rockwall, Texas. They had their ceremony outside of the venue, and the sun was bright and beautiful that day. Skys the Limit Production had the honor of capturing this special occasion through video.

The couple met at Texas State University in a study room. On the day Bryston proposed, he took Katie to her favorite spot on the river in San Marcos with their new puppy. She was skipping rocks when she saw that he got down on one knee.

On their wedding day, Katie wore a white strapless dress with a modest length train paired with a veil that laid past her back and she held a beautiful arrangement of white and blue flowers. Bryston wore a simple white shirt underneath his light grey suit with a classy blue floral bow-tie and brown dress shoes.

Before the ceremony began, Katie decided to have special moments with those closest to her. Her mother helped her dress while she had her bridesmaids wait to see her when she was fully ready to be married. After greeting with her girls (and touching up makeup), she met with her father who couldn’t stop telling his little girl how beautiful she was. Lastly, Katie shared a first touch with her groom to be.

Their ceremony was held under a giant wooden arbor; the decor was natural and simple, but also elegant. Bryston was as nervous as he could be, but kept his cool in front of family and friends. One by one each couple from the wedding party made their way down the aisle smiling from ear to ear. When Bryston turned to see his bride, for the first time on their wedding day, you could see on his face that this was one of, if not the best decision he’s ever made.

They exchanged their own written vows to one another and gave each other a special ring to wear for the rest of their days together. Guests cheered and applauded the couple after they shared their first kiss.

The cheers continued when the newlyweds made their grand entrance down the wooden staircase inside the elegant stoned hall. The couple immediately had their first dance underneath the chandelier followed by the traditional dances with their parents. Katie’s cake was a delicate and pretty bridal cake and Bryston’s was a mouthwatering stack of chocolate cookies. The DJ kept everyone young and mature on their feet all night long to songs both new and classic. When the night came to an end, the couple saved the last dance for each other.

After a tender moment alone, the love birds met their friends and family outside. Guests tossed flower petals in the air while the couple rushed through and made their way to the green vintage truck with a just married sign attached.

Forever Wedding Favors

Looking for fun and memorable gifts to give your guests? Something that they will actually enjoy keeping? Forever Wedding Favors has your back. These timeless pieces are sold at a low price compared to other competing companies.

I personally love the little polar bear salt n’ pepper shakers. They are no bigger than your thumb, but they make for a cute little addition to dinner. Warning: they are breakable, I broke mine the very next day (my luck). 😭

The wine bottle cork remover is also another one I like. It hides itself as a mini wine bottle which can be doubled for decoration, and you always have it nearby for when you feel like getting your Riesling on! I have a classy heart bottle stopper and I just love it. It adds just a little bit of personality to my favorite bottle of wine!

Now if your with your friends at a bachelorette or a bachelor party these wedding playing cards are the way to go. They get you hyped for the special day and of course bond over a nice game of cards.

If you’re like me, then you are into anything romance. I use these little L-O-V-E magnets that actually look like typewriter keys. I love to see them every time I hang up a picture on fridge! So guys seriously, take a gander, there’s some awesome finds; more than 300 to be exact!
