Aristide Mansfield Wedding

Taylor and Tony’s fall wedding at Aristide Mansfield was incredible. From the beautiful, clear weather to their intimate personal vows, to the best final wedding song I’ve ever witnessed– it was an absolute joy to celebrate these two.

Getting Ready at Aristide Mansfield

We started the day at Aristide Mansfield, a gorgeous Tuscan inspired Dallas venue. We had three total first looks, one with Taylor’s dad, her bridesmaids and then one with Tony. What made this first look so special was Taylor and Tony chose to read private, personal vows during their first look rather than at their ceremony. It was such a sweet and special moment and something I will encourage all my future couples to do! After their first look we did a few couples portraits and then wedding party photos. Since Taylor and Tony’s wedding took place in November, most of our photos had to be done before the ceremony since the sun sets so early. But that meant after the ceremony they could just relax and enjoy the rest of their day.

Ceremony Time

The ceremony space at Aristide Mansfield is absolutely stunning. From the gorgeous steps to the beautiful ivy covered walls to the string lights all around, it feels absolutely magical. This wedding had an incredible circular flower installment up at the altar. It made for some amazing photos!

Sunset Portraits

After the ceremony and some quick family photos we took just a few more couples portraits as the sun dipped down. Taylor and Tony have been telling me for the past year (including throughout their whole engagement session) that they were “bad” at photos. But they truly could not be more wrong. These two are so fun to photograph, they are constantly laughing and joking amongst themselves, which gives the sweetest candids. But also. Can we just acknowledge that Taylor looks like a freakin’ model???? I hope she finally believes me when I tell her she is truly so photogenic *insert multiple fire emojis*

Time to Party!

And party this group did!! This was such a fun bunch. Apparently it is a bit of a tradition on Tony’s side, to end the night with Bohemian Rhapsody. It was unlike anything I’ve ever seen. There was a jam circle, there was air guitars, there was a mosh pit. It was truly something special to witness. It was one of those weddings where I 100% wished I could’ve been a guest.

To Taylor & Tony

Thank you so much for letting me capture your special day. Y’all were so fun to photograph. I cannot wait to see what’s next for y’all, I know it’s going to be great!!
