Lisa and Trey got married a little over a week ago… our last wedding ’til September. And man, this was a perfect way to start our little mini-break for the summer. This wedding was so heartfelt, so intimate, so full of happiness, and such FUN. It was a perfect match for this awesome couple we’re proud to have gotten to know.
Piazza in the Village was an excellent choice for the steamy July weather. With just their closest family attending the ceremony, Trey & Lisa focused solely on each other, and on their children. None of the fuss, all of the love. And then, meeting all their friends in a ballroom for a night of dancing & donuts… I mean, that’s our kind of party! (really, though. If you haven’t gone to FunkyTown Donuts in Fort Worth, FIX IT)
It certainly didn’t hurt that we worked with a couple vendors we adore. With Darla from Blossoms on the Bricks handling design & coordination, and one of our all time favorite DJs in control of the party (Shout out to Jason!!), we knew it was going to be a blast.
We’ll kick off the blog post with Lisa’s STUNNER of a wedding gown…
Trey & Lisa’s children were very involved in the ceremony, and it was truly a blending of families. The twins walking down the aisle just melted my heart… so nervous!
The chapel at the Piazza is set up perfectly for me to be able to sneak around and catch different views of the ceremony. And normally I would have to worry about staying out of a videographer’s way, but I didn’t, so sneeeeeak I did!
Unity Sand ceremony for six…
Mr & Mrs Phillips!! They went right out on the balcony to say hi to all the guests waiting in the courtyard… and toss that bouquet!
Oh my heart… new favorite thing. Since Lisa’s beloved dog Jack couldn’t attend their wedding, a favor station was set up in his honor. Everyone was encouraged to take home a bag of dog treats and a tennis ball for their furry kids!
After their first dance as husband and wife, Trey & Lisa took time to acknowledge some very important people who couldn’t celebrate with them. A table was fully decorated and left empty in honor of police killed in the line of duty. Trey has long served Fort Worth as an officer, and with this wedding following just a day behind the horrific killing of police in Dallas, it was emotional for everyone. Several friends had been called in to work instead of attending, and so many people there knew of or had lost someone. What an incredible tribute.
Did we mention donuts earlier? Because YEAH.
Trey’s mom started up my waterworks again with her short and perfect toast:
“Spend every day together like it’s your last, and spend every night together like it’s your first.”
Yeeeahhh totally crying again just writing it.
Thank you so much for bringing us on this whirlwind journey with you. You are people we’re proud to know, and it was an absolute honor to be trusted inside your inner circle to capture these precious memories. Congratulations again!!
