The DFW area is home to some of the most beautiful wedding venues you could imagine! My favorite part about serving engaged couples in this area is that there is such a vast diversity in venue types and styles – my job never gets boring! Although I frequent some venues more than others, I love that there are so many incredible offerings!
THAT SAID – anyone who knows me as a wedding photographer ALSO knows that my favorite type of wedding to document is a classic ballroom wedding! I feel like there is nothing that beats the timeless romance and class of soaring ceilings, chandeliers, and elegant styling. I was thrilled that Chrissy and Chad were planning a beautiful Adolphus Hotel wedding with all of those boxes happily ticked – but my favorite part by far has been getting to know them both over the past year.
You may remember Chrissy and Chad from their engagement session in downtown Grapevine this past winter. They intentionally planned a longer engagement in order to allow time for more planning and less stressing. It definitely paid off, and it was so evident on their the day of their Adolphus Hotel wedding! Of course the beautiful florals, great food, awesome dance party, and stunning venue made a grand impression on me – but what I really loved most was seeing how much trust Chrissy and Chad put into their chosen wedding professionals! It allowed them to slow down and enjoy their day – which they most definitely did. I honestly felt like we all were able to connect and get to know this pair in the best way possible. It’s such a privilege to know this smart, accomplished, and FUN couple! Chrissy and Chad, we all wish you the absolute best and are so honored to have been there to photograph your gorgeous Adolphus Hotel wedding!
