Elizabeth & Cirby

My goodness it has been forever since I have blogged and I can not wait to dive head first back into it. To kick us off welcome to the blog of –

Elizabeth & Cirby!

Elizabeth & Cirby were married on August 28th 2021 in Weatherford, Texas at Trickel Creek. They were surrounded by their closest friends and family. Let’s talk about their wedding details for a moment. Elizabeth’s bridesmaids dress color was so stunning and truly complimented the day all together. Then the pops of red that were in the flowers through out the bouquets and the reception flowers really popped. The men really looked pretty snazzy themselves in their blue tux’s. Elizabeth’s wedding dress was so stunning on its own. From the lace detailing to the simple shimmer that it gave off in the sunlight, her hair/make & veil really completed her whole bridal look.

Their day was so magical and deffff a party! From their first look where I don’t think there was a dry eye anywhere. To the ceremony with laughs, tears and so much love. To the reception where it was just a HUGE party. Best part of the reception – was defff the replacement of the garter toss with ALL the men in the reception hall dancing the Carlton dance, you know? The Carlton dance, JUMP ON ITTTTT! They had the sweetest toasts and so many people traveled far and wide to be with them to celebrate this new journey they embarked on.

I was so honored to be apart of their amazing vendor team for their wedding & I can not wait to share their full gallery with them, but until then. Here is a huge preview into their wedding day.

Congratulations, again Elizabeth & Cirby!

Mr & Mrs. Hellums

When Hayley first emailed me I was so excited to find out that I was one of her first vendors that she was booking. She said ‘she knew she needed me as their photographer’. That is itself is the biggest compliment I think anyone can ever tell a photographer. I officially didn’t meet Hayley until her bridal session a few weeks before her wedding! However, I felt like I knew her my whole life & couldn’t wait for the wedding after her bridal session!

During her bridal session, we were talking about her wedding venue that she worked at & come to find out that it was a famous house from the ’70s because of its history! Me being the person I am & loving crime stories/shows I had to learn more about this house. Well, it was Cullen Davis house – he is famous for 2 murders & other crimes that he was completely acquitted for. I found this so interesting & honestly just wanted to explore the whole house. Stonegate mansion has since turned into one of the coolest/beautiful venues I have ever seen. There are so many amazing places for portraits & the ceremony/reception hall lighting is everything to me. So much natural light beams through the floor to ceiling windows.

Hayley & Ryan’s wedding was one for the books. Her attention to detail really killed the game. From her floral centerpieces to her wedding dress. Their day was filled with so much love to last a lifetime. I have never seen such a full ceremony/reception, I don’t think there was an empty chair in sight.  Hayley really wanted to have a clean style with the bridal party so the bridesmaids wore black & the men wore all black tuxes, can you say ELEGANT. That’s exactly how I would describe their whole day, elegant. Their reception was popping all night & no one wanted to leave at the end of the wedding. That is what I call a wedding for the books! Congratulations, again you two! I hope you two are enjoying married life to its fullest!

Do ever meet someone & immediately say, yeah we are going to become great friends.. not good BUT GREAT. Yeah, that’s how I felt when I first met Whitney & Ben. When we first started talking about meeting for their consultation I suggested that we met at a Starbucks & Whitney was like uhhh do you mind if we go for ice cream instead… I stared at that email for a good 5 minutes & said ‘yeah I can already tell we are going to get along’. The night of the meeting came & I got there early as I do & I saw them pull up & I saw Whitney turn to Ben & she said ‘i think that’s her, what do we do’. Their consultation was just talking about how these two met, their love story & eating ice cream. We literally barely talked about packages or details. I got an email from Whitney not even 10 minutes after we left stating they wanted to book me.

Whitney & Ben met online when Whitney sliiiiiidd into Ben’s DM like a BOSS. Ben then took her out to Olive Garden for their first date & I mean who doesn’t love Olive Garden. Then the rest is basically history. When I asked Whitney when she knew she was going to marry Ben she said Pretty early on in our relationship. He just always took care of me and everything he did has so much love behind it.’ Cue tears. When I asked Ben when he knew he was going to marry Whitney he said ‘It was when I first told her I loved her during a weekend trip to San Antonio while we were eating at a restaurant on the river walk. She had already said I love you a couple of months before and I knew if she was as patient, considerate, and able to put up with my shit to that point she had to be the one.” CUE MORE TEARS.  These two are so in love & I am so excited to be celebrating with them come February of 2020!

Congrulations you two – This year is going to fly by then it will be your turn to become Mr & Mrs. I am so grateful that you two have chosen me to be on this journey with you!

XOXO – Hannah

Carolyn​ & Matt

Where can I even start with this blog? When I first spoke to Carolyn I knew that we were going to become more than just a vendor-client relationship. Well, life happened & she went in a different direction for photography, that’s totally fine I respected their decision.   A couple months had passed when her coordinator Ammie with Glitter & Glue Weddings and Event reached out to me and asked if I still had their date & I said YES! I was so honored that they choose me after all the time had passed. Since that day I have grown a bond with Carolyn & Matt during their wedding journey. I took their engagements, Carolyn’s bridals & of course their wedding. Getting two know these two on a personal level has been so so rewarding & I can’t wait to see where their relationship goes on this next chapter of their lives.


Carolyn & Matt got married at Hidden Creek in Heath, Tx! Carolyn had a clear vision of what she wanted on her wedding day & she wasn’t going to let anything stray her from that vision! She had touches of blush, rose gold & greenery everywhere! She had her dress custom made & I mean come on LOOK AT IT – it is stunning & there will never be another dress out there like it! She also let her bridesmaids were different dresses & I loved that touch because it let them give a little of their personality to the wedding! Also, can we take a moment for their ceremony decor – Tammy from T & T flowers & gifts KILLED the game with these flowers!  There were so many sweet sweet moments from this wedding that I could talk about all day but I will share this one. Their first look touched my heart, Matt told me at the engagement session & at dinner after her bridal session that he was not going to cry & BOY did he tear up, they both did! It was such a sweet moment to be a part of. Carolyn surprised her mom with a special mother & daughter dance & boy when I tell you I had to take a moment to gather my tears, these dances mean so much to me because I did it with my own mother at my wedding, her mom was so surprised when the DJ announced it & there was not a dry tear while they were on the dance floor. Another part of their wedding day that I ABSOLUTELY loved was the SUN, the sun decided it was time to come play during their portraits session & even though everyone wanted to go inside because it was FREEZING outside I said no & stood my grounds & you will see why below! You cant tell it was 10 degrees outside! Once we went inside for the reception it was nothing but a huge huge party – their bridal party & guest kept the party going all night! Then they had the most perfect sparkler exit to their perfect wedding day! I am so honored that I was apart of this day & I am so honored to be walking away with 2 new amazing friends! Congratulations Mr & Mrs. Wenhold!
