Rixie + Brandon's Denim and Diamonds Affair

Rixie and Brandon celebrated their wedding on February 7. To get the festivities started on the right foot, Brandon's family threw them a wonderful rehearsal dinner at Michelangelo's Restaurant in Conway, AR. They solicited the help of the style genius, Becky Charton, who took the theme and RAN with it! These folks are ALL about details. It was such a treat to photograph the end result. If you are interested in seeing more of this magical event, check out Tellez Photography's Client Galleries. Click HERE to see more! Enjoy!

Michaelangelo's - a darling restaurant in Conway.

From the moment the guests walked off the elevator, they were greeted
with ambiance - tying the whole evening and theme together.

They were also treated to bubblies!

This t-shirt is how Brandon proposed to Rixie.
He wrapped it up in a box and gave it to her. How cute is that?

The dining room was bedazzled with denim and diamonds, custom made chandeliers.
It was just beautiful!

Storybooks were part of the table top decor.
These books told Rixie and Brandon's life and love story.

The centerpieces.


The weather couldn't have been better for an evening on the rooftop!
And what a rooftop indeed!



These roll pillows cracked me up!

Rixie - enjoying all the details!

Brandon's Dad did the toast leading into dinner. He loves these two!

Tiff's Belly Pics

My beautiful sister-in-law is pregnant with my nephew, Jack. He's scheduled to arrive sometime in early May, and we can't wait to meet him! Tiffany is the proud mom of Haley and Grayson (who also grace the pages of this blog). Jack makes number three for their family and in honor of this time in her life, Tiff wanted to have some photos taken to remember it by. It's been a big year for their family on many levels, and it is such an honor to hear the story and cheer wildly from the sidelines. Tiff, Robert and I adore you and your family. We love you and are so proud of you! Keep battling and celebrating. We love you each! - Mary

Meet Walt

My brother, Sam, and his beautiful wife, Lori, brought Walter Owen (Walt) into the world 2 weeks ago yesterday. He is the first grandbaby in mine and Lori's families and he is a BIG deal. I know that I speak with total bias, but frankly people, I don't think you've ever seen a cuter kid! It has been fun to meet him and I really look forward to when they figure out their schedule as a family and feel more settled in their routines. My theory is that when that happens, I'll be able to play with him more! Won't that be fun?! Yesterday, I joined them at their adorable home in Park Hill to photograph this moment in their life. Walt isn't sleeping quite as much these days as he did two weeks ago, so he wasn't terribly agreeable with the whole arrangement. But over the course of the afternoon with feedings and diaper changes, we got what we wanted... cute photos of our newest favorite little man! I hope you enjoy!

Love the eye contact.
