John James Audubon Center Wedding | Lisa + Rob

Aug 30, 2019

Lisa and Rob’s classic wedding at the John James Audubon Center was a magical event! From the beginning of the day to the very end, all the little details came together to create the perfect day. First, I loved all of Lisa’s gorgeous details as she got ready in the morning. Their printed vows were so beautiful! I totally fell in love with Lisa’s Tara Keely gown. It fit her personality so well and she truly looked like she stepped out of a fairy tale!

After capturing all of their adorable details, Lisa was zipped into her gorgeous dress and we caught a few portraits together. What a beauty! Meanwhile, we captured a few moments of Rob as he got ready. I loved his floral tie, and the sweet, personalized, cuff-links! Finally, details were wrapped up and it was time for them to see each other for the first time that day!

This moment between Lisa and Rob was just so sweet. I will never get over the adorable look on Rob’s face when he sees his stunning bride! That, my friends, is the look of true love and adoration! After seeing his bride for the first time, Rob and Lisa took some time for some pictures together before their big ceremony at the John James Audubon Center.

These two are a breeze in front of the camera and we shared so many giggles and laughs! They could just not keep a straight face! During our portrait time, I caught a few more shots of Lisa on her own. She looked like a dream twirling her dress around in the field! I also loved capturing her with her beautiful bridal bouquet by DFW Event Design. And finally it was time to meet up with the bridal party!

Lisa and Rob had the best wedding party! First, they were totally dressed to the nines. I loved this color scheme and her bridesmaids looked great in their Show Me Your Mumu Dresses. Rob’s groomsmen were so dashing, and I loved their blue suits! These guys truly put the party in bridal party! They were down to try absolutely anything and they were SO happy to see their friends, Lisa and Rob, finally tie the knot! You could tell this group was a tight-knit family, and we had a blast capturing their photos. Finally, finally, finally, it was ceremony time!!

This gorgeous ceremony space at the John James Audubon Center was the dream location for Lisa and Rob. First, we all loved the greenery, and the gorgeous floral accents from DFW Event Design. After admiring all the details, Rob walked up to the altar with his groomsmen. Once again, the look on his face when he saw Lisa was just too sweet.

She was a fairytale bride and absolutely owned her walk down the aisle! Just like our portraits, there were plenty of laughs during their ceremony. Just look at those sweet smiles! Lisa and Rob were so excited to exchange personal vows, rings, and, finally, a tender kiss! What an exciting moment! Finally they could walk back down the aisle together as husband and wife! Lisa lifted her bouquet in the air with a grin – the two were officially married!

Oh reception time, how I adore you. I loved the stunning space for this John James Audubon Center wedding. First up, all of the natural light streaming through the windows made the space so clean and inviting. Second, I loved seeing all the floral details throughout the entire room. The pieces coming down from the ceiling, styled by DFW Event Design, were the perfect touch! I absolutely adored their naked cake by Jeffrey A. Miller Catering. There were so many gorgeous gold details and I loved the calligraphed place cards by Sweet Lou Designs.

Lisa and Rob had the absolute cutest first dance! They were overcome with laughter and love as they stepped out onto the floor together. We also had the chance to head out for portraits one last time before they danced the night away! Finally, I loved seeing Lisa and Rob bathed in sunlight and love as the day ended.
