I am so excited to share these gorgeous photos with all of you! I feel so blessed to have been a part of Brittney and Tanner’s wedding day. They were a joy and pleasure to work with! The ceremony and the reception took place at the amazing TPC Craig Ranch in McKinney, TX.
About the Couple
Small story about them and it will also explain the Taco Bell packets at this wedding. Tanner, the groom, is a huge fan of Taco Bell. Since the moment they met back in high school, Brittney knew that it was quite possible that her engagement would be the Taco Bell packet that said “Will You Marry Me?” As all of their friends and family knew about Tanner’s adoration for the fast food Tex Mex delicious late night treat. Brittney let Tanner know as they were talking about getting married that she should let him know that if he asks at a Taco Bell with the packet…it wouldn’t get the right answer. He thus changed his plans and proposed to her in front of family and friends. Brittney decided for his groom’s cake to surprise him with a Mexican chocolate cake in the shape of a Taco Bell packet with a special message to let him know that she loves him and was excited to be his wife. 🙂
Britney and her bridesmaids got ready at Hotel NYLO in Plano, TX. This is amazing hotel as there is lots of natural light (Photographer speak for great picture taking opportunities) as well as fun and contemporary feel. The bride, bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride had hair and makeup styling done by the very talented team of professionals from Elan Makeup Studio. Anita, owner of Elan Makeup Studio, is amazing and fast!
The bride, bridesmaids and Mother of the Bride departed Hotel NYLO Plano to TPC Craig Ranch to start getting into their dresses. The bride’s dress was Maggie Sottero gown that a ruffled skirt with a lace and Swarovski crystal embellished bustier that she found out at Stardust Celebrations. The bridesmaids dresses were cocktail length black strapless dresses with a sweetheart neckline that the bride found at Nordstrom.
I have to stop about mention the amazing florals from Haute Floral. Kristen is a magician! Brittney’s colors were red, white, black and a little bit of pink. I remember sitting in her floral consultation and holding my breath to see what Kristen would suggest. The bouquets were just the beginning of this beautifully done color scheme of red, white, black and pink wedding.
All of the men’s attire was acquired through Men’s Wearhouse.
They opted to have their ceremony inside as Brittney and Tanner were married in January. That is definitely something to note about TPC Craig Ranch is that their indoor and outdoor space is amazing for a wedding ceremony. Their ceremony was performed by the minister at the church where Brittney grew up at.
Brittney and Tanner recessing out has to be one of my all time favorites as they both look so at ease and full of joy!
The cakes not only looked amazing, but they tasted amazing. The bride’s cake was a multi-tier cake with flavors hand selected by the bride. Now the Groom’s Cake was Mexican Chocolate, because it honestly went with the theme of the cake.
The couples enjoyed the amazing DJ stylings of Rod Baker. DJ Rod is one of those chosen few who make what I do so much easier as he goes above and beyond entertaining for the day of the wedding – he creates an experience for the bride and groom.
The couple and their guests danced the night away!
