Wildwood Inn Wedding in Denton, Texas

 

We're revisiting our lovely couple Jennifer and Dennis or as we like to call them Jenny and Denny. Too catchy not too right? We started with their romantic, with a touch of western engagement session in downtown Fort Worth at the Stockyards. You also saw Jennifer in her beautiful wedding dress, barefoot and blissful during her bridals earlier this year.

Now we get to share the beginning of next chapter with you, their beautiful wedding in Denton, TX at the elegant and European inspired The Wildwood Inn.

Jenny and Denny met at a rugby game that Denny was not formally invited too and it was history after that! Their wedding was romantic, and classic while still laid back in a garden setting at the beautiful wedding venue, The Wildwood Inn in Denton. 

We've been to The Wildwood Inn several times and in true Igor wedding photography fashion we like to create something romantic and new each time.

 

We captured a lot of emotional moments at this wedding, our favorites were when Jenny's dad first saw her after getting ready, we also got some great candid moments of Jenny taking a moment to herself before walking down the aisle.

We always save the best for last, so we stole a few moments from Jenny and her new husband during the reception in order to get some signature night portraits of them in front of the gorgeous venue.

1899 FarmHouse wedding Venue, Princeton, TX. Kelly & Phillip

 

We enjoyed the wedding of our lovely couple Kelly & Phillip at the historic 1899 Farmhouse wedding venue so much. They welcomed us and really made us feel like family, we go over and beyond for all of our wedding clients.

You need wedding photographers who will run with you, climb with you, and explore with you! Igor wedding photography is the best choice for creative wedding photography among all the Dallas & Fort Worth wedding photographers. I think that this Princeton wedding shows the variety of wedding portraits and candid shots that we always get at our weddings.

“Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.”
– Maya Angelou

Kelly & Phillip knew they had chosen the best Fort Worth wedding photographers when we shared a genuine interest in the initial consultation about their personal story and allotment of time we needed to create awesome wedding imagery.
In each consultation, Igor and I, try to explain the importance of giving us enough time to help us capture magical moments. Our clients have patience and trust in us that they will receive wedding photos that are fine wedding art from one of the absolute best wedding photographers in Fort Worth.
Kelly & Phillip held their wedding at the charming and folksy 1899 Farmhouse wedding and event center in Princeton, TX.
When we arrived, as usual, we thoroughly scout the wedding venue regardless if we have been
there once or hundreds of times. As any amazing wedding photographer should do. We don't just rely on our talent as seasoned wedding photographers, we want to be prepared wedding photographers!

Our beautiful bohemian bride Kelly, being a photographer major herself really understood the importance of lending us the time we needed to not only capture but to also create stunning wedding Images.
We pride ourselves at IGOR wedding photography, for each and every time doing something a little out of the box when it comes to our craft. We don't want to walk away with one great wedding image we want you to receive a stunning wedding portfolio and album from beginning to end, and to uphold our reputation as being one of the best DFW wedding photographers!

Artistic & Elegant country wedding potraits

It truly gives us a great satisfaction when our wedding clients, appreciate that we
have a vision and allow us the time to recreate whatever is going on in our minds! We mainly shoot photo-journalistic photos during the day to tell the story as it unfolds, but we also take our time to create some fine art images that you are going to want to hang up in your living room.

We literally had Kelly & Phillip running through fields, jumping fences, twirling in circles, swinging on swings, it was so much fun, it shows in the photos.
The time allowed to create images as seen here is not much when you add it all together. We generally need about 45-60 minutes of extra time for family, wedding party and couple portraits. Usually half an hour after the ceremony and another half an hour later on to get a different look, once the daylight has changed!

Brides & Grooms don't be scared to take some time away from your wedding reception to get wedding photos that will last you a lifetime. This is also an important reason to hire a 2nd wedding photographer. They can still be inside your wedding with your guests capturing all the moments and festivities during the "cocktail hour".

Contact IGOR wedding photography today to talk to one of the best wedding photographers in Dallas-Fort Worth! Let's set up a private & free consultation at our studio. We can discuss your wedding details, what you envision your images looking like and explain to you how we work & educate you on amazing wedding photography!

A Milestone Mansion wedding in Denton-Ericka & Andrew's Wedding

 

Our beautiful bride Ericka was a classic bride in that she really wanted an understated elegance about every aspect of her wedding.
Starting with the gorgeous venue she chose Milestone Mansion, located in the heart of Krum, near Denton, Texas.
The Milestone Mansion wedding venue is a breathtaking location, it has a classic coastal flair, influenced by the British colonial era and a unique southern charm, it has gorgeous gazebo and dock overlooking a pond. It was a perfect wedding venue for Ericka & Andrew.

Ericka loved her wedding venue so much, that we did both her engagement session and bridal there.

The wedding day began with the bridal party getting ready at a nearby hotel.
We caught the finishing touches at the Milestone Mansion in their spacious bridal suite adorned with crystal chandeliers and several full length mirrors.
Our stunning bride Ericka & our handsome groom Andrew had an amazing evening full of dancing, great food and moments to remember for a lifetime!

We wish them the best and hope to capture pictures of their first anniversary!

Be daring, be different, be a smart bride!

A Fall Wedding to Remember-Weatherford-Diamond H3 Ranch

You remember the awesome elegant couple (all of our couples are awesome) we wrote about a few weeks ago?

I'll refresh your memory Ellisa is a doctor who occasionally travels to Africa and other countries to help women and children with medical care, and Jason is an architect who also accompanies his now wife to these countries in need to help out as well! Did I mention they are animal lovers and adopt animals too? And of course we are in love with them!

Fine Art Wedding Photography

Well we finally had the highly anticipated wedding day, I am not much a crier well, yes I am ( Igor would probably want me to clarify this is his fiancé writing now lol). Okay I am emotional, but weddings ironically do not usually strike emotion in me since I'm in working mode. But whoa! I had all the feels at this wedding y'all.

The theme spoke to fall! The colors were deep, rich and vibrant. It's hard to get the true feeling of fall in Texas, with our ever so changing weather but our bride nailed it at her wedding. Complete with s'mores, hot cocoa, games for the kids and adults, and tea and blankets to wrap up in with your loved ones.

It is not because we want you to spend all of your money on us (But thank you :) we know that this moment happens once! So we strongly encourage our brides and grooms to opt for video coverage of your wedding day. At IGOR Wedding Photography we have an amazing staff of second wedding photographers and wedding videographers who will ensure you that you will get great coverage and the life's precious moments and stories carefully recorded .

With that being said, I am so very pleased my bride changed her mind and decided to have video coverage because her ceremony couldn't have been more breathtaking. It was not only a joining of two hearts and two lives that day but a whole community. They praised the couple and even sang worship on a hilltop with green pasture views. How's that for wedding goosebumps?

But the wedding day emotions didn't end there, the reception was just as heartfelt. As the maid of honor poured out her love for her best friend and explained to the rest of the guest just what kind of amazing person our bride Ellisa is, and how lucky Jason was to have her.

I can't wait to shoot their anniversary pictures and family to come, again I will say we were fortunate to have this couple choose us to capture this amazing day!

An Indian Wedding at Southfork Ranch

 

We love to shoot Indian weddings in Dallas, and this Indian (Hindu) wedding in particular was one for the ages. Indian weddings usually last several days, they have a lot of guests, they incorporate a lot of traditions and rituals, and most importantly they are a lot of fun, with an abundance of colorful clothing, decorations, plenty of food and with much joy, singing and dancing. Weddings are one the most important celebrations in Indian culture, and they know how to celebrate it in grand style.

Rachna and Prasad's Hindu Wedding Event lasted 3 full days!

I'm here trying to briefly explain how this Indian wedding was celebrated, not all Indian weddings have the exact same rituals and traditions, and I'm sure I have forgotten some parts of it, but this is how essentially most Hindu weddings unfold.

Day one: The Pithi and Mehndi Ceremony, at Noah's Event Venue in Las Colinas, Irving.

First on day one was the Pithi ceremony for Rachna, the beautiful Indian bride.
It's a cleansing ceremony, generally held one or two days before the wedding, in which the bride and groom are rubbed with turmeric paste in a beautification process.
It's a celebration of love and happiness for the one's who are being married where the relatives come and prepare for the ceremony. The Pithi ceremony indicates that now the girl or boy has entered into adulthood and is ready for the marriage. The groom also has a well-planned Pithi ceremony, but in this case we only covered the Rachna's Pithi.

After the Pithi ceremony they started the Mehndi part of the ceremony, which is a casual event where henna paste ("Henna Tattoo") is placed on the guests, family and the bridal parties hands/feet in intricate patterns. Mehndi is one of the sixteen adornments of the bride,  it's a women's function, which takes place a midst musical beats of Dholak, with women singing traditional songs for a prosperous marital life of the bride.

After the ceremony they had dinner and social mingling with the guests.

 

Day Two: The Ceremony for the bride's family at the SLPS Community Center in Irving.

This was a full day of rituals, ceremony and gift giving in front of more than 800 guests. Including the Mayara, also called the ‘Maternal Uncle’s Ceremony,’ , where the uncle brought gifts for the mothers of both the bride and the groom, including the dresses and jewelry they where wearing at the wedding day.” This is also the first time during the 3 days that the groom and bride saw each other. There was also a large buffet dinner after the rituals and a lot of social mingling.
 

Day Three: The Indian wedding Ceremony (Vivaah Sanskar), at Southfork Ranch in Parker.

The Indian culture celebrates marriage as a sacrament (Sanskara), a rite enabling two individuals to start their journey in life together.

In order to best understand an Indian (in this case a Hindu) wedding ceremony is to think about it as a romantic story where the bride and groom arrive separately and meet and fall in love. The traditional host for the wedding ceremony are the bride's parents. The groom and his family are the guests arriving. The ceremony shows the transition for the Bride and the Groom, from the first stage of their lives, to their second stage of their lives as a married couple. Indian weddings are also about two families being brought together socially, with as much emphasis placed on the families coming closer as the married couple.

 

This is how this wedding day unfolded:

Baarat (The Groom's Processional):
Prasad, the groom arrives at the venue in a car with a lot of dancing and cheering from the guests and family members.

Ponkvu:
Bride's mother receives the groom and performs a traditional puja to offer her blessing. She will place a clay pot on the ground during the Baraat for the groom to step on and break, This will assess his strength before he takes the brides hand in marriage, this is an important symbolic part.

Jaimala, the Pre-Wedding Garland Ceremony:                                                                          Bride and groom exchanges garlands as he arrives. The Families lift up the bride and the groom on their shoulders. The groom is lifted higher than the bride to show that the bride cannot take the groom from his friends and family.

Madhuparka:                                                                                                                                 The groom Prasad walks then with Rachna's mother to where the ceremony is to be held (the Mandap). His feet are then washed and the bride's brothers and sisters then tries to steal his shoes, if they succeed, the groom must then offer money to get them back. This was a wild part of the day, they really tried to steal his shoes, it's no joke!
The groom went to sit on the stage until the brides arrived.

Kanya Agamana:                                                                                                                                The bride Rachna is then walked down the aisle with her uncle, with one flower girl and no bridesmaids. She then sits across from the groom with a sheet (the Antarpaat) in between so they can't see each other. Once the sheet is lowered, family members started trowing flowers at them in celebration. The couple them exchanged garlands for a second time, this time at equal level.

Madhupak:
The bride’s father now offered the groom yogurt and honey as the expression of welcome and respect.

Kanyadaan:                                                                                                                                         The Brides father now performed the Kanyadaan by tying the hands of the couple together in a marital knot (the Hast Melap) he ties a marital knot between the bride and the groom. With this gesture, the father of the bride is giving away his daughter to the groom.

Mangalphera:
The couple then walks around the fire four times in a clockwise direction representing four goals in life: Dharma, religious and moral duties; Artha, prosperity; Kama, earthly pleasures; Moksha, spiritual salvation and liberation. The bride leads first, signifying her determination to stand first beside her husband in all happiness and sorrow.

Then the Groom tied the Mangal Sutra (beaded necklace) around the bride's neck, after that the Bride with the groom's help touched 7 betel nuts with her feet.
The groom then applied a small dot of vermilion, a red powder (Sindhoor), to the bride’s forehead and welcomed her as his partner for life. They are now a married couple!
Then the married couple went to the front of the stage to bow to family and friends to get their blessings.

The rest of the day was more like a traditional American wedding day, they had the family photos taken, that took some time since it was a large family.
After that they couple went to clean and change clothes while the guest and family had a casual cocktail hour with games for the guests to play, by the famous Southfork Ranch Mansion (from the TV soup opera Dallas).

After the cocktail hour the wedding reception started with speeches, entertainment, cake cutting and a lot of dancing and singing.

This was certainly a wedding to remember! Contact us today if you are getting married and need stunning wedding photography coverage!

Ashton Gardens: Lauren & Brent's wedding, Corinth, Texas


I've shot a few weddings in my time, okay.. a lot of weddings and every once and awhile I meet a couple who redefine love for me , and show me why I initially began this venture. While I love the creative, artistic side of photography, weddings like Lauren and Brent's help me to fall in love all over again with my profession. It makes me happy!

The event venue was an absolutely beautiful chapel by the name of Ashton Gardens, located in Corinth, Texas. It's a unique chapel, with distinctive floor to ceiling windows, surrounded by plentiful gardens ,fountains and lush greenery.

Our Bride and Groom , opted to do a first look, featured here. This is an event I love to capture, not many couples choose this , often the bride not wanting to reveal the dress before the ceremony, but if you are wanting to capture those tear jerk moments, with no one around, I find that this is the best way to get them! This moment allows for an intimate moment for you and your spouse, for the realization that everything you have been waiting for, where your lives join and continue as one. This very day!

 

Every picture captured with Lauren and Brent invoked love, and the couple nearly forgot I was there! They were simply lost in each other, and everyone else around them felt it too!

At Igor Wedding Photography we love to tell love stories through beautiful photos, are you looking to capture beautiful imagery of your romantic wedding day? Contact us today, let us help you tell your story with our fine art wedding photography.
