The Venue at Waterstone Dallas Wedding – Jerod & Kiersten

Kiersten & Jerod – you two are wonderful together and I am thankful to have been there for your wedding day to document and celebrate alongside so many of your wonderful family and friends!  Thank you for bringing me to the beautiful barn venue (Venue at Waterstone) in North Dallas – it was the perfect indoor ceremony site for a July wedding day in Texas!! Your joy and love for one another is so evident and I know these photos will be cherished for generations to come.   There were so many beautiful blue, navy and pink details, a fun ‘Father/Daughter” first look and the pre-ceremony prayer time that just took my breath away, not to mention the easiest 28 person wedding party I’ve ever had the honor of working with!! Enjoy a look at so many favorites from the first part of your wedding day….and Kiersten, you are one amazing wedding planner and bride!  You’ve spoiled me with your organization and trust!  (Also, it’s the hugest compliment ever when a fellow wedding vendor chooses you to photograph their wedding day, so thank you!! )  Congratulations! One of my new favorite ‘trends’ on a wedding day is doing a First Look with your dad (and brother!).  This was such a sweet and special moment for them to see Kiersten all dressed up in white ready to get married!  Absolutely in love with these peony and protea filled bouquets made by Baylor Floral!!!  Me to Kiersten:  You have so many gorgeous girlfriends! Kiersten to me:  Yes, but they’re all even more beautiful on the inside. Heart melting for this wonderful...
