Bethany marries Luke…. April 17, 2010

What a WONDERFUL privilege it was for DFW Events to be part of the wedding celebration honoring Bethany Habecker and Luke Edmonson. Not only was the affair beautiful, imaginative and a photography showcase… but there is no greater joy than being part of dear friend’s union! Now, you may be wondering who does a professional photographer with skill as wonderful as Luke Edmonson hire for their wedding day? Well, he goes to Australia to get a favorite colleague of his, Mr. Jerry Ghionis. But first, we have to stop and admire Luke’s father, David Edmonson, for his amazing bridal portraits of Bethany!!

Now, Jerry’s philosophy of photography is one of the most unique and beautiful styles we have yet to see… he literally photographs the happy couple all day long… this post could be quite lengthy because EVERY picture of Bethany and Luke are fantastic… the first photo session began the day before the wedding, QUITE early in the morning….

Luke and Jerry….And now for the gorgeous wedding gown…. the wedding party enjoyed the Penthouse at The Stoneleigh Hotel for all hair, makeup and pre-ceremony pictures…Bethany and her parents, Dr. and Mrs. Hal Habecker. Hal was given the privilege to not only give Bethany away, but to perform the marriage ceremony…
Leaving The Stoneleigh Hotel, on the way to the church!!The wedding ceremony took place at First Baptist Church of Dallas… Bethany envisioned modern enhancements to this traditional space… Nelson Robinson and the Garden Gate accomplished her vision impeccably!
The gorgeous wedding party… the bridesmaid dresses came from Bella BridesmaidImmediately following the ceremony, guests were invited to the foyer of the church for a group shot… they were greeted by stilt-walkers who would lead the guests brave enough to face the rainy weather to the reception!….
The reception took place at the Dallas Museum of Art… immediately upon walking in the museum, guests were greeted with this gorgeous photography spread of the happy couple…The Garden Gate created beautiful centerpieces….
The beautiful wedding reception… Bethany has a passion for purple!! The entire room was absolutely stunning!!

The wedding cake… Bethany dreamed this design and it was so unique and beautiful! The talented Cathy Saenz brought her vision to life…
Now…. with Jerry’s philosophy of shooting the bride and groom VERY thoroughly leading up to their wedding reception, he then puts together an AMAZING slideshow with all of those pictures taken earlier in the day for the reception. It was absolutely beautiful and there was not a dry eye in the room!!A perfect picture to show the love and beauty of Bethany and Luke’s wedding day….And off to Hawaii they went…. Congratulations Bethany and Luke!!! We love you both so much and are so blessed to have had you not only as clients, but to call you dear friends!
