alice + curt

Alice and Curt were married at Brake and Clutch Warehouse just east of downtown Dallas in Deep Ellum.  They had friends and family travel in to town from all over to celebrate their beautiful wedding. I was able to attend their rehearsal dinner the night before and heard so many toasts and stories of how much this couple is loved and how well they love and care for their people. It was such a treat! It goes without saying that these two know how to have a party. They are both unbelievably kind and I had so much fun getting to photograph their wedding with some of the most incredible vendors in Dallas.

Matt+Faith

I still remember Faith coming into my room telling me Matt asked her on a date. They were leaders together at church so naturally she had been trying to avoid him for awhile, but really I think it’s just sweet that they were such good friends before dating. I had a front row seat at their dating relationship and got to watch Matt pursue Faith well. I really am such a fan of these two and cannot wait to see how they continue to be an example of God’s love for His people because of the way they demonstrate love towards one another. Also, how incredibly gorgeous is Faith and how “Faith+Matt” are these photos!?!www.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comMatt+Faith-121www.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.comwww.brittanypartain.com

julie + stafford

Their story is one of a kind and it’s the type of story little girls dream of.  Julie was mentored by Stafford’s parents throughout college after meeting them at a local church in aggieland. She didn’t really know much about Stafford through the years because the parents devotion was to her, rather than their own personal lives. However, Julie and Stafford eventually met and now they are engaged to be wed. These two are obviously beautiful together, but you just have to trust me when I tell you their kindness and genuine affection for the Lord is even more beautiful. It’s such an honor to be able to capture their wedding this August! engagements-228engagements-233engagements-214engagements-196engagements-176engagements-148engagements-133engagements-121engagements-111engagements-101engagements-88engagements-74engagements-62engagements-55engagements-48engagements-36engagements-30engagements-5

JT & Regan

This wedding was a hill country dream. Regan and JT’s wedding was incredible and so much fun! They had an amazing team of vendors to pull off such a fun night and they are the cutest couple around. Regan and her family did an amazing job planning such a special night full of surprises and paid exceptional attention to all the details.  Regan and JT are the kind of people you just want to be friends with forever and it is so evident they love one another so well and always have fun. (I barely had to pose these two, they were just so cute!) I took a ton of images and I wish I could share every single one, but I hope you enjoy a glimpse from this gorgeous wedding day!

Danielle & Joseph

Danielle and I met in 6th grade. We were both in the nerdy classes together and I don’t really remember the days before friendship with her. Danielle has always been fun, confident, bold, driven, outgoing and adventurous!  Over a decade of friendship and I love getting to see of glimpse of all that God has done in and through her. Joseph is a really wise man to marry this pretty friend! (and it was so fun getting to meet him finally!) I am so thankful for years of friendship and so honored that she would ask me to photograph them a few weeks ago in Fort Worth!

claire + conrad

Claire and Conrad got married on Claire’s family farm outside of College Station. Her dad hand built a greenhouse venue on their land for the ceremony and reception. It was undoubtedly a labor of love so Claire could have her favorite people in her favorite place for her dream wedding. (Dad award of the year!) Their family made a lot of sacrifices for this gorgeous wedding day. Claire got ready in the original home on the farm, the same home her great great relatives said goodbye to one another when they went off to war. Their farm is rich with family history and will remain a cherished place for their new family for future generations. Claire and I were friends in high school and the last time I was on their farm was for Claire’s sweet sixteen years ago. I was utterly blown away by all her dad’s work on the farm. It was undoubtedly, a dreamy, misty cool day in small town, tx.
