Noelle + Kenneth Chapel at Ana Villa Wedding

Have you ever met someone and just felt like instant friends?  That’s exactly how Noelle and Kenneth make you feel… they are incredibly warm, kind-hearted and genuinely nice people.  And you can’t help but to instantly feel at ease with them.  They actually just announced that they’re expecting their first child a couple of weeks ago and all I could think was “what an exceptionally lucky baby”. And I can’t wait to share how their story started at Chapel at Ana Villa.

The Chapel at Ana Villa Wedding

Noelle was born and raised in Milwaukee, WI.  Kenneth moved from MI to WI and met Noelle a handful of years later in 2010 while in school.  And here they are now, having been in DFW since 2016 and officially having tied the knot in Nov 2021!  What a journey life takes you on sometimes.  Am I right?

Noelle and Kenneth chose the Chapel at Ana Villa because they loved the classic look of the chapel.  And La Cava for their reception for its intimate and unique look and feel.  Their wedding was a labor of love!  They had all their friends and family on board helping to make sure everything was perfect on the day of – and it was, without a doubt.

I loved some of the sentimental details about their wedding, like;  Noelle’s wedding dress being passed down from her mother.  I thought that was such a special way to honor her – and she looked beautiful!  And the fact that the couple danced to “First Time” by Seven Lions (acoustic version) because it was the song that was playing when they got engaged.  Their intimate wedding had me in tears more than once.  Including during their private and personal vow exchange before the ceremony.  So many feels!

Aside from making sure we captured lots of images with their beloved friends and family.  Kenneth’s one other request was that we got some epic nighttime shots for them as well.  And I’m so glad they were willing to set aside a little extra time for it because we had such a fun time creating them!

These two are genuinely two of the kindest souls and I couldn’t be happier to have been part of their day.  Thanks for letting me celebrate alongside you!  I’m so very excited for you and this next journey of yours – you’re going to be incredible parents!  Congratulations again!
