Fall is right around the corner, which means its time to start stocking up on closet staples for the season! If there is one thing you need to know about me, it’s that I LOVE bright colors and ruffles, regardless of the season. I will never leave those two details behind just because they are not acceptable. To me, thinking fuchsia is not a fall or winter color is not acceptable! 🙂

Bridals at the Dallas Arboretum


Photographer: Krysten Alise Photography

I am so excited to share my bridal portraits with y’all. Our wedding was on the beach in Port Aransas, but I wanted some bridals that had a more romantic feel. The Dallas Arboretum is the perfect setting. I love seeing all of the gorgeous flowers, trees and  water fountains. But the best part of the experience was seeing other brides taking their photos as well. It is so fun to share the moment with other brides. Even if we don’t talk, that smile and thumbs up across the field shows the comradery brides have amongst each other.  Continue reading “Bridals at the Dallas Arboretum”
