Jacqueline and Nick’s wedding at the Grand Ivory Venue was incredible to say the least! It was the perfect day for a Dallas wedding and everything went smoothly from start to finish! Jacqueline and Nick are so incredibly in love and it was all too clear the second I met them! I was so honored to shoot their wedding and meet and get to know their family and friends who all absolutely adore them! Their wedding party was so fun too and delivered some great speeches and then all danced the night away!! For their private last dance, Jacqueline and Nick danced to Touching Heaven by Johnnyswim and it brought me to absolute tears!! It was the most beautiful song which I had never heard before. It really resonated with me and I think it’s be a last dance I’ll remember forever.
It was a dream to shoot at one of my favorite venues! The Grand Ivory is perfect in just about every way. The only thing I wish is that it was closer to my house! The property is spectacular and there is a space for every occasion and scenario. A beautiful, detached large bridal suite with great natural lighting, bathroom and plenty of mirrors and getting ready spots. It also has an area to relax with comfy chairs and a couch. The detached groomsmen suite is great too and if you have been involved in weddings, you probably know that the guys usually don’t get a whole lot when it comes to greeting ready spaces. This one had a pool table, getting ready space, bathroom, lounge area, and a photographers favorite-great natural light! The Grand Ivory also has a covered outdoor chapel that is so unique unlike any other venue. It’s completely covered and has walls but also has openings all along side and the back to give the feel of being outside. It faces the sun which again-a photographers dream! The grounds have beautiful fields, a pond and architectural arches that are off to the side and make for a beautiful background. And to top it off, they have their gorgeous barn reception hall that is huge and includes all farmhouse tables and chairs. It is really hard to beat and I always look forward to shooting there!
Thank you Jacqueline and Nick for such am amazing day and for trusting me in your special day!!
