I officiated and shared vows with Patrice and Robert in a beautiful ceremony at the gazebo in Briarwood Park. I was happy to suggest and secure the location in DeSoto for their wedding ceremony. It was a lovely event shared by family and friends. I've never seen so many cellphone and iPads recording the event...so much fun!Patrice and Robert did bring in Jim Rode to photograph the event and his pictures are outstanding. Everyone I meet clicks a button, Jim's goes all out to create great images. He believes in the wedding day like I do. The look in Patrice and Robert's faces said it all...they know how special this day is. I love being a part of a couple's wedding day!Jim has sent me some pictures from the wedding day. Most photographers ignore little weddings and never send me pictures! Why is that? Well, Jim did. Also here is a video that Jim made along with some pictures he took. If you search for a wedding officiant, call or text me, I'm there for you. 817-797-7720(And I'm going to recommend Jim Rode Photographer too. He's the best photographer in DFW and one of the few who will do a small wedding at a small price. Most of those 4 or 5 thousand dollar photographers won't give you the time of day if you only need an hour on a Tuesday... People on a budget sometimes end up with a budget photographer. Sadly, your day is just as important as a couple with a 50k wedding. Anyway, ...

It was my pleasure to marry Holly and Shon on a beautiful Sunday morning at Lee Park in the Turtle Creek area of Dallas.Holly and Shon are from California and came in for the Cowboy game (and to get married!). Holly is a big Cowboy fan. Jim Rode Photographer took the pictures. In fact, because the couple had planned on a taxi ride from Dallas to the stadium, Jim volunteered to pick them up from the hotel, drive to the ceremony and then drive them to the game. (taxis can run into big bucks if you aren't careful.) Here are some images and a video slide-show of my ceremony with the couple and Jim Rode's Elopement Wedding Coverages. PS If you want fab photography of your elopement Jim offers special prices of this day in your life. Call him at 817-781-7331, or visit www.JimRode.com.Holly and Shon, Elopement Wedding in Dallas from Jim Rode on Vimeo.
