They finally did it! Chelsi + Felipe are married! I know so so so many brides have had to postpone their wedding in 2020 and how hard of a decision that is to make. I will tell you though, this wedding day was worth the wait!

Chelsi and her girls had hair and makeup done before arriving to the venue. Luckily since we do a timeline a month in advance, we knew that I would arrive to the venue 30 minutes before she would. We decided to have Chelsi get all of her details together and gave them to a family member that was arriving first to the venue. So I got to have a little love affair with all her her beautiful details. You have no idea how happy this makes me! It’s the little things!

When all the girls arrived, there was so much conversation and laughter, I knew it was going to be a fantastic day! Lots of mimosa’s to go around! (the drink not their pup! ha!) Side note, if you remember, they have a sweet pup named Mimosa that was at their engagement session. : ) After Chelsi was in her dress, she shared a first look with her bridesmaids. Cute!

And these groomsmen have so much personality! What a fun group! They each had a custom suit made with special lining. Man these suits look sharp! We got to catch a sneak peek of the groom and groomsmen walking past outside while they were taking portraits. Luckily, you can’t see into the bridal suite through the darkened windows.

Don’t you just love these wedding colors? The light blues are just so dreamy. And their reception decor is stunning! We also should take a second to talk about Chelsi’s dress. O.M.G. this dress was made for her! I haven’t seen the added train like this one was before. I have to say, it’s on my top list!

Once all the I do’s had been said, it was time to party! And this reception was hype! Finding a great DJ is worth the research. So much great music to dance to. I mean, let’s be honest.. and sing to! There are some great dancing photos that I just love! They actually make me lol. Seeing friends and family have such a great time brings the BIGGEST smile to my face!

You have to see just a few of our favorites of the day!

CHELSI + FELIPE | An Aristide McKinney Wedding

It was so great to finally meet Serene + Alex in person! We did get to have a zoom call with them a few months ago for a consult. So not only did we get to spend time with Serene and Alex, we got a bonus getting to meet Alex’s sister! So nice to help […]

After arriving to the Westin Hotel in Downtown Dallas, we took the elevator to the 32 floor where the reception was being held. As soon as the elevator doors opened, the scent of florals greeted us! Crazy because we still had to walk down a hall to get to the room. We were absolutely blown […]

All I can say is… WOW! And that wow goes to all the things! First off, who knew that there was this beautiful winery in Weatherford, Texas?! When we were driving up, I was blown away at all of the rows and rows of grapevines. The views are absolutely stunning! When I walked into the […]

Lisa + Mat’s wedding day started and ended with so much joy and all the fun in between! Weston Gardens is such a beautiful backdrop for a wedding and reception. And on this day, we were blessed with all the cloud cover and cool breeze! It made for a pretty magical night! Philip and I […]
