Epic Dallas W Hotel Wedding


by Dallas Wedding Photographer, Tara Arseven

Danielle and Scott won over my heart with their extra personalized first email, highlighting how much they love GoT and animals, sharing so much of their personalities – before even the initial phone call, I knew I wanted to work with them so bad! A few sentences into the email, I picked up the phone and it was an INSTANT connection! They are now a married couple and their wedding was one that will be remembered for a long time!

I have to say, Danielle and Scott had built one of the best wedding vendors team to create their vision for their big day. Before I go into the details of the day, I’d love to introduce them to you!

We started our day with details and getting ready – and I have to say, Melisa J is the – she did an amazing job on Danielle’s makeup and hair!

Danielle and Scott wanted to do a “no see” letter and gift exchange. The hall way on the conference rooms’ floor was the perfect spot to do that. It was both an emotional and fun moment for our couple as laughter and happy tears mixed in the moment.

After the beautiful ceremony, we started our post-ceremony party bus tour with the wedding party, getting some amazing photos all over Dallas! 🙂

We even stopped at Double Wide for a round of shots – and of course MORE PHOTOS!

Just as everything else, their grand entrance was also super fun and energetic! Danielle and Scott’s big smiles brightened our day!

But to me, the MOST EPIC part of this wedding day was when we got to go up to the helicopter pad and do the sunset newlyweds’ portraits! We are officially the first one’s up there to do a session and I really didn’t want to leave haha! But because Nate was throwing the best party downstairs and all the guests were posting on social media – tempting Danielle and Scott to go back to party ASAP, I had to surrender and get back down to the party haha!

And the best way to end an amazing wedding day is with a bubble bath! No, seriously! I walked down that tunnel with my camera and by the end I was soaking wet and slippery because of all the soap! But seeing the results, it was worth getting all soaked!!

I could not be happier for you, Danielle and Scott! You two compliment each other so well – you are a TAP couple who is madly in love! Thank you so much for having me as part of your big day and for trusting me to document it for you! I will see you soon when you’re back in DFW <3

The easiest and (most reliable) way to contact me is through my contact form. As I'm always on the go, I'm not always able to answer my phone. Besides, I get a poop ton of spam calls.

I wouldn't want you to get all mixed up in those! :)
