What was your favorite memory of your wedding?
Favorite memories included the teasing that went on between the bried and groom as we stood before the minister and the father/daughter dance at the reception when my dad almost lost his pants.
Why did you choose Ivey Photography to capture your big day?
We met Chris and Shana at a Bridal Show and their personality and photos stood out. They were very perosonable and down to earth. The pictures were vivid and showed off the personality of the couples. We got the impression they’d be easy to work with and photos were wonderful and we knew they’d do a great job.
If you could give one piece of advice to our future bride and grooms, what would it be?
Take time to enjoy your fiance and do what makes you guys happy. You’ll never please everyone and in the end you two are all that matter.
What would you have done differently? Something to help other brides plan on or plan differently.
The only thing I would have done differently was start doing what I wanted sooner and not trying to please everyone else.
What was the most important thing to you when planning your wedding? (Example: photography, flowers, venue, food, etc.) Was there a vendor that you would like to recommend to another couple?
I was focusing primarily on the reception since that’s were everyone would spend most of their time.
What did you love best about working with Ivey Photography?
Chris and everyone were so friendly and patient. They are great to work with and they have great ideas.
Do you have a favorite photograph that you would like to share with other couples?
Why is that photograph your favorite?
My favorite photograph is the one of my husband and myself during our quiet time just before the reception. In the photo we are sharing an embrace and you can see the Dallas Skyline in the background behind us.
