This wedding was such a blast just two weekends ago at The Westin Hotel located at The Domain. Jackie and Ben have been together almost a decade, y’all…there was some serious love in the air. Their day was packed with photo ops…from their Ketubah signing prior to their Jewish ceremony to the Hora dance at their reception! Both Ben and Jackie come from strong jewish family roots and I really appreciated all of the history and tradition. The Ketubah signing was such personal experience and with the whole room gathered around the table, it was the first time I didn’t feel intrusive being that close to the bride and groom!
The hotel suite had amazing light that filled the room that Jackie was getting ready, making her getting pre ceremony photos effortless. Jackie had the perfect shoes for her wedding day, ha! I love a little unexpected flair, and her wedge converse sneakers (embroidered with their wedding date!) was the perfect touch of modern and “something blue.”Jackie and Ben chose to do a first look, but without a courtyard, we chose to capture them inside near the hotel restaurant in front of some beautiful glass doors. We chose this area to do their group shots because the lighting was warm and beautiful and it kept everyone out of the Texas heat! Their two ceremonies followed, and boy was I happy we chose to do the family photos prior because their guests were ready to PARTY! Sugar Mamas Cupcake made the night super sweet and Exquisite Florals did an amazing job decorating the tables. They had an excellent band, Memphis Train, and they really knew how to get everyone on the dance floor and the night was just spectacular!
