Lauren & Aaron : Wedding Pt. 2

Happy weekend, friends! It’s a busy one for us… we’ve got Lucas & Kristen’s Fort Worth wedding tonight, Claire & Jeff’s Dallas wedding tomorrow, and our daughter’s first ballet recital on Sunday. ‘Tis the season to be busy, right??

But we can’t go into a weekend without finishing up sharing our favorite images from last weekend’s incredible winter wedding. Lauren & Aaron were such troopers in the planning of their big day… they contacted us nearly 18 months ago, and at NO point were they ever stressed or overwhelmed when we talked to them. They were always kind, calm, and beyond sweet to work with. Even when icy roads and treacherous parking lots threatened to throw a kink into the event they had planned, they smiled and said that as long as everyone was safe, they were happy. Truly, these are the kinds of people we LOVE working with. 🙂

I listed the awesome vendors we partnered with in yesterday’s blog post, but I’ll reiterate those links here. If ANY 2014 brides are looking for a dream team to pull off your upcoming wedding, you can’t go wrong with any of these people:

Design/Coordination : Kelly w/ Sweet Pea Events

Floral : Debby w/ Branching Out Event Florist

DJ & Lighting : Colby w/ Astounding Sounds

Catering : Gil’s Elegant Catering

Videography : Splendor Films

We loved working with ALL of you, and can’t wait to get the gang back together soon. 🙂
But enough chatting… let’s get to the pictures! Today’s blog post starts just minutes after Mr. & Mrs. Mattox shared their first kiss as husband and wife… they chased it with a big second kiss outside in the icy loveliness.

The ballroom at Noah’s in Irving was transformed for this event… the draping, the lighting, and the amazing florals just took my breath away!

We’ve seen a lot of crazy things on the dance floor over the years, but face-biting the “groom’s gal”? That’s a new one. 😉

    GAH! After seeing the engagement photo above, I put two and two together and realized that you guys are the same couple that graced my absolute FAV engagement session! MAN, I love the dress, love the wedding and LOVED the engagement session! Lauren, I want to be you. We should be friends so I can continue to live vicariously through you! Otherwise, you’re going to have to have McG take your photos again soon!
