Starting this week with a full heart, full mind, and a full to-do list. I'm preparing the next feature for @farewelltravelco (coming Wednesday!), I’m up to my elbows in editing, looking ahead to a beautiful wedding weekend, and my new baby nephew is due to be born in about 10 days! Here's to a productive day and all of the good things that come with starting a brand new week! What's on your to-do list?
On the blog this week: fireworks + florals + greenery + a handsome groom + the stylish bride who rocked these boots on her wedding day! ⠀ ⠀ Venue: @thewhitesparrow⠀⠀ White Sparrow Planner: @marissal_twsplanner⠀⠀ Catering/Bartending: @fgfcatering⠀⠀ Rentals: @junk_disorderly⠀⠀ Florist: @celebratedallas⠀⠀ Photography: @graydoorphotography⠀⠀ Videography: @yourstrulymedia⠀⠀ DJ Entertainment: @leforcedj @thisismayo⠀⠀ Photobooth: @lcbphotoboothco⠀⠀ Bakery: @sweetsomethingsbyashleigh⠀⠀ Hair & Makeup: @makaeladelaura @moorehairbykelv⠀⠀ Getaway Car: @DFWvintagecars⠀⠀ Late Night Snack: @innout
Happy Wednesday, friends. I’m still over here melting over all of the beauty in Erica and Colton’s wedding photos. The love, the softness, not to mention the texture and high neckline of Erica’s gown ✨ Venue // @stonecrestvenue Planner // @engagedeventsdallas Beauty // @the_styling_stewardess Floral Design // @thestalkmrkt Bakery // @thebutterflycakefactory Catering // @five_star_llc Bartending // @hdliquidcater Rentals // @beautiful_event_rentals DJ // @leforcedj Video // @a2zweddings_tx Photo booth // @bokehboothco Transportation // @premierofdallas
Just a few of my favorite family-filled moments from Erica and Colton's wedding day: the toasts (which were both heartfelt and humorous!), the traditional Macedonian bread dance, and the peaceful moments shared between Erica, her mom, and her sister as she stepped into her wedding dress and prepared to walk down the aisle. See more featured on the Gray Door Photography blog today 🌿⠀ ⠀ Venue // @stonecrestvenue Planner // @engagedeventsdallas Beauty // @the_styling_stewardess Floral Design // @thestalkmrkt Bakery // @thebutterflycakefactory Catering // @five_star_llc Bartending // @hdliquidcater Rentals // @beautiful_event_rentals DJ // @leforcedj Video // @a2zweddings_tx Photo booth // @bokehboothco Transportation // @premierofdallas
The last few weeks have been such a gift. Kyle and I have had both family and friends from the midwest visit us here in Dallas, I've delivered a handful of beautiful summer wedding galleries, and yesterday we celebrated my 26th birthday! These weeks have been filled with coffee dates with friends, yoga classes, wi-fi free weekend getaways, and an unintentional step back from social media. Those who know me well will readily tell you that I love to unplug and focus on the present. But even so, when your work is your passion it can be tough to take time away in the name self care. If anything, this month has reminded me that taking good care of yourself allows you to be your best self, wife, business owner, friend, artist, believer, and dog mom. I'm just so thankful for that!
Love to all the moms out there who carry their children through both good times and rougher waters. Endless gratitude for the women who have loved us unconditionally from the moment they learned of our existence. Sweet mother daughter moments like this one get me every time 💕⠀ ⠀ ⠀ Venue: @thewhitesparrow⠀ White Sparrow Planner: @marissal_twsplanner⠀ Catering/Bartending: @fgfcatering⠀ Rentals: @junk_disorderly⠀ Florist: @celebratedallas⠀ Photography: @graydoorphotography⠀ Videography: @yourstrulymedia⠀ DJ Entertainment: @leforcedj @thisismayo⠀ Photobooth: @lcbphotoboothco⠀ Bakery: @sweetsomethingsbyashleigh⠀ Hair & Makeup: @makaeladelaura @moorehairbykelv⠀ Getaway Car: @DFWvintagecars⠀ Late Night Snack: @innout
