A Historic Texas Wedding | Steve & Kelly

On a perfect Texas summer afternoon, Steve and Kelly gathered their closest family and loved ones to celebrate their wedding in Fort Worth. The couple chose a delightfully vibrant color palette with fuchsia and lavender rose bouquets, with crisp white accents. Kelly incorporated a special “something borrowed” by using her grandmother’s sorority pin to accentuate her bouquet. Steve opted for a classic black tux from Ralph Lauren, which was in stunning contrast to the bride’s intricate lace gown and cathedral veil from Allure Couture

For their reception venue, Steve and Kelly chose the historic Texas & Pacific Station room that was built in 1931. Carefully restored in 1999, it is Fort Worth’s largest and most extravagant example of 1920s Zigzag Moderne architecture. It has several advantages for a prospective wedding venue, such as stunning ceiling detail and chandeliers, large windows with excellent air conditioning, and a gorgeous outdoor cocktail hour space. Additionally, this venue is still part of the working Texas & Pacific Railway Terminal, making it a unique and convenient choice that caters to out-of-town guests and locals alike.

The evening unfolded like a dream, woven together with old Texas flair. The couple opted for larger-than-life colorful floral centerpieces accented by candlelight with classic gold and black tableware. At every turn, personalized installments told their love story from start to present, including a delightful cocktail menu inspired by their beloved dog, Mr. Darcy, and custom drink koozies for guest’s to take home. Ending the evening with utmost class, the newlyweds made their grand getaway in a stylish 1957 Rolls Royce provided by DFW Vintage Cars

LET'S work

This life is thrilling and grand and moments of greatness are threaded through loss, grief, and uncertainty. So for tonight, let's dance and celebrate the love we have here. Now. What a gift. The ultimate luxury.

Whether your love is the strong silent kind that shows itself in knowing eyes and tender embraces, or if your love is the loud laughter and infectious kind that can barely contain the joy and excitement you feel... I want to be there. With my camera. Taking snapshots so that time will forever be frozen still.
