Gather around, friends, because I’m going to tell you the story of one of the most fun and loving weddings. Ever since Fawn searched #dfwweddingphotographer on Instagram and found us, our relationship with her and Randell has been like we were old friends. From texting us pictures of their dogs, to a skype call with no sound, to hanging out with them at their engagement portrait session, at every interaction they have treated us like long-lost BFFs. So as we traveled to photograph their wedding in McKinney, Texas last Thursday, we were so excited to be with them again.

And it became instantly clear the way Randell & Fawn treated us was the way they treated everyone. As we spent time with the bridal party that morning, we saw first-hand how Randell & Fawn had collected a tribe of friends who felt like family. Add these friends to their close-knit family, and Randell & Fawn had a large group of loved ones who would do anything for them and were excited to celebrate them on their wedding day.

This love shared by everyone wasn’t the only beautiful element of the day, though. Randell & Fawn had done an amazing job with all their wedding planning and details. This was our first time experiencing Stone Hall at The Springs in McKinney. It is such an amazing venue in the North Dallas area, designed perfectly for weddings. The meticulously landscaped outdoor ceremony site, the reception hall with it’s high ceiling and wood beams, all the gorgeous nooks and spots for portraits, no wonder it’s in such high demand! And Fawn’s wedding day details enhanced the beauty even more. Her family friends helped her design and build all the bouquets and floral arrangements, and the navy, blush, and pearl design palette complimented the bright green of the outdoor venue and the wood accents within the reception hall perfectly.

The details weren’t the only things Randell & Fawn had planned for the day. This bride and groom had some fun surprises up their sleeves! One surprise Fawn had for her soon-to-be hubby (surprise Randell!) was a Darth Vader inspired mini-photo session with her and the groomsmen. She even got the junior groomsmen and ring bearer in on the action, pretending to be her stormtroopers.

The fun continued into the ceremony, with Fawn walking down the aisle to “Isn’t She Lovely.” At Fawn’s secret request, the officiant began the ceremony by reciting the “Mawwaige” speech from The Princess Bride.

But perhaps the most fun surprise of all was the pink chrome for her and black for him light-up soled shoes Randell & Fawn wore to their reception. The lights were dimmed for their big entrance, and as Chris Brown’s “Forever” was played by the talented DJ Dan Quinn, Randell & Fawn danced their way down the stairs and through the reception to the dance floor, lighting the way with their flashing shoes.

Randell & Fawn’s wedding day was filled with romantic moments as well. Randell did not want see Fawn before she came down the aisle, but they did want to have a moment of connection before. So they had a “first touch” in the upstairs hall of the venue. Holding hands around the corner, they talked about whether they were nervous, how they couldn’t wait to kiss one another, and then prayed together. For their vows, they recited traditional vows “to have and to hold...for better or worse.” But before repeating those vows, they shared heartfelt, hand-written personal vows to one another. These personal vows were so precious and meaningful, full of laughter and holding back tears as they professed their love and commitment to one another.

And before the night was over, they asked DJ Dan to clear the dance floor so they could have one final dance by themselves on their wedding day. Seeing Randell & Fawn dance together as husband and wife on the empty dance floor was a touching glimpse at how much love this couple has for one another, and the amazing life they are going to share together.
