24 Aug Dallas & Caleb | Ross Bridge Wedding

Oh… My… Gosh y’all… It took me forever to go through Dallas and Caleb’s wedding photos to select all of my favorites and it was quite a task! We were blessed with a gorgeous May day at Renaissance Ross Bridge Golf Resort & Spa and from the first application of makeup to the final moments of the night… I think you’ll see… this wedding was action packed and so full of love and joy. I love my job and all the couples I have the pleasure of working for (a lot) but weddings like this one make it so worth while for me. Caleb is so in love with his bride… I’m pretty sure you’ll notice that below. And Dallas is pretty smitten with her guy too! 😉 I also love it when I have a wedding party like theirs to work with. These folks were all there to celebrate Dallas and Caleb and it showed the entire weekend. All the planning sessions and getting to know this couple and their families over many months made me sad when it was all over. Many thanks to Kelli and Daniel of Kelli + Daniel Taylor Photography for capturing their day to perfection and to Clay of Clay Carroll Productions for their beautiful film!

Dallas is truly the apple of her daddy’s eye!Collage6Another one of my favs is of the reveal to the bridesmaids… oh, the squeals… so cute!

To be able to have someone you admire and are close to guide you through your nuptials is such a blessing.Collage20This couple did a traditional unity ceremony but instead of sand they used glass beads. Afterwards the beads were sent back to Unity in Glass and then blown into a gorgeous glass sculpture that now resides in the couple’s home. Look for another blog post about that soon.Ross Bridge Wedding-0438 Collage21 Collage22 (1)Ross Bridge Wedding-0496 Collage23 Collage24Ross Bridge Wedding-0635 Collage25 Collage26I loved all the details we included on the table welcoming guests to the ceremony. There was a lovely tribute to Caleb’s father, the actual book that Caleb used to propose to Dallas, and several other nods to their shared love of literature.Ross Bridge Wedding-0672 Collage27Ross Bridge Wedding-0678Signature drinks are fun, and in the south when the bride and groom hail from different SEC universities, of course you have to find away to properly represent!Ross Bridge Wedding-0668Collage47Ross Bridge Wedding-0662 Collage30Ross Bridge Wedding-0706 Collage31See I told you… they kind of like each other! 🙂Collage32 Love watching the connection fathers and daughters have. I know it’s a bitter sweet moment for these men!Collage33Caleb and his mom surprised the guests when they moved from a nice mother-son dance into a well-choreographed “shake your groove thang” number. They took it up a notch more when his brothers joined in on the fun. I love how Kelli and Daniel captured all the action here!Ross Bridge Wedding-0745 Collage34 Collage35Ross Bridge Wedding-0752Y’all if you’re looking for a high energy and I mean high energy dance band… then I strongly suggest you hire Az Izz. They were so interactive with the guests and really great to work with, not to mention they put on a fantastic show!

Caleb thought so too when they caught his attention during a song with a fantastic guitar part. From there they proceeded to tell Caleb that it was his wedding gift from his beautiful bride. Needless to say, I think he was a little happy about it!Collage39Then to top it off, the band had him come up on stage and join them for a number. Everybody was so impressed and seeing this go down was priceless!

You can tell Dallas and Caleb wanted to soak in every last moment.
