The Miller Affect Wedding Trip to Canada

I’m so excited to share some of our trip to Banff, Canada for my sisters wedding! Colt and I went a week early so that we could explore and spend some fun, quality time together! It was SO worth it. This was the first time that we got to spend time with just the three of us since Emberlynn’s adoption. We have 2 other foster kids in our home and while we love them to death, we were longing for some one on one time and I tried to capture some of the special moments.

As a wedding photographer for 10 years now, I have really grown fond of shooting destination weddings. We probably spent the majority of the week scouting locations for my sister’s first look. There were so many things I was looking for including scenery, position of the sun, accessibility, and how crowded the area was with tourists. 

We spent some time kayaking on Lake Moraine and I didn’t even know that water could be THAT blue!!! Whew! Emmy was such a trooper the entire trip and really soaked it all in (she didn’t even make a peep on the flight-her first ever)! All of the adventure led up to us sharing in the marriage of Amanda and Troy with the most gorgeous wedding in the mountains! I cannot wait to share the wedding with you, and I promise it will happen soon!!

What’s Happening This Week with Adria Lea Photography?

There is so many AMAZING things happening this week over here at Adria Lea Photography, and it’s too much to put only on Social Media! So I wanted to sum it all up here on the blog to make it an easy one-stop-shop to view all of the excitement!! 🙂

1. Madeline and Jon’s engagement session is featured with The Knot’s How He Asked!! Definitely check out the feature by clicking HERE to see their love story and photos they took from the proposal day! So sweet! **Her fabulous makeup was done by Dallas makeup artist, Amber Joy!

2. We are BEYOND excited for Janae and Dylan’s wedding to be published with Borrowed & Blue! Their Dallas wedding was at The Milestone Mansion, and if you follow me regularly, you know I rave about them constantly!!

The details of this wedding were so classy, elegant, and well…just FUN! The wedding colors were a combination of gold, pink, maroon, red, and green, and those gold sequined bridesmaid dresses were some of my favorites! The Dallas florist, Wild Rose Events, nailed it as always and I just LOVE working with her…she is a rare talent! Click HERE to see the feature!

Other vendors: Candy Haven, Steward’s Productions (Click HERE to see the video), and LeForce Entertainment

3. Our second wedding blog feature with Borrowed & Blue is Carolyn and Brandon’s wedding at The White Sparrow Barn (also one of my TOP wedding venues of all time)! The peach, orange, and green wedding flowers (by Wild Rose Events) are pretty much to die for, and then paired with gold sequined accents it couldn’t be a more gorgeous scene!

Then let’s talk about the hair and makeup…yeah, its amazing!! Natalia Issa is by far one of the best hair and makeup artists I’ve ever worked with, and would recommend her to anyone in a heartbeat!!!! Click HERE to see the feature!

Other vendors: Steward’s Productions, Weddington Way, WTOO, Lillian West, Blushing Bride Boutique, Nothing Bundt Cakes
4. Our third feature with Desiree Hartstock (yes, the beautiful Bachelorette) is the engagement session of Yuch and Doug. This session was planned and captured in just one day (whew, made it happen)!! And it wouldn’t have been perfect without Wild Rose Events creating that flower crown in a matter of hours at the bride’s request! Click HERE to see this feature!
5. Last, but not least…We put up a blog post of Jenni and Andy’s wedding at BRIK Venue in Fort Worth. This DFW wedding venue is amazing, and even better in real life! What’s special about this wedding, is that it was the very first wedding held there. The venue wasn’t even finished with constuction, but they made it happen, and not only did it turn out beautifully, but it is such a fun memory for everyone! Click HERE to see the blog post!

Jenni and Andy Wedding at BRIK

Jenni and Andy decided to have a small intimate wedding with close family and friends, and it was such a BLAST! When I showed up, I was so excited to see that she was mixing it up and wearing a gold sequined wedding dress! Fun fact about this intimate ceremony…my husband was the officiant! Hehe (isn’t he so handsome?)! But serisouly, BRIK wedding venue is so beautiful! Every room is simple, elegant, and picturesque. I had just as much fun walking around photographing everything in sight as I did dancing at the reception! It’s the perfect indoor Dallas Fort Worth wedding venue for small to medium sized weddings! I fell in love with the venue from the moment I arrived!2017-05-24_0001.jpg
2017-05-24_0009.jpgAnother fun fact…the succulent arrangements were DIY by the couple! 🙂

Jaclyn and Shane McCord Wedding Photographed by Dallas Wedding Photographer, Adria Lea Photography

Jaclyn and Shane met through her cousin who went to high school with Shane. Her cousin decided to be matchmaker and set them up on a blind date. They said that when they met that night it felt like they had known each other forever! It wasn’t but a year later that they went on a vacation with their family to the beach and her life become so..much..better!! Shane told her there was a photographer there to take family photos of everyone, so she was clueless. The photographer then tapped her on the shoulder and asked her to turn around, and much to her surprise was Shane down on one knee asking her to be his wife!

“BOOK HER! I can’t say enough good things about Adria and her loving, easy going personality, and of course her exceptional work. She has such an amazing talent for capturing ”moments” which is exactly what you want on your wedding day. She did my best friend’s wedding and I immediately knew I wanted her for my special day one day. She was very clear in all her correspondence before the wedding and arrived early on the day and was really careful about not missing any important moments.” -Jaclyn

Are you kidding me with this venue?! The Milestone Mansion never fails to impress me, and I absolutely love shooting there! I’ve photographed both outdoor and indoor ceremonies there and you just can’t go wrong. Aahh, that arbor for the outdoor ceremony was so perfect! Love Love Love…can’t say it enough!

Still in need of a Dallas florist? I am still in awe of the flowers for this wedding done by McShan Florist! She is definitely a perfectionist and takes a lot of pride in her work because everything was truly flawless. It was an honor to photograph it and I would absolutely recommend her!
