The Castle at Rockwall is a simple, yet elegant venue, and with the vendor team we had for Amanda & Aaron’s wedding will truly make you feel like royalty.

One of my favorite things about The Castle at Rockwall is that it’s architecture is gorgeous and unique without being complicated or confusing. The layout of all the rooms and photogenic spaces are simple and easy to navigate. This a surprisingly overlooked aspect of many weddings. However, the layout of The Castle at Rockwall makes it easy to run a smooth wedding day.

Getting Ready

Both of the getting ready suites provide about the same amount of square footage, but provide plenty of space for a large bridal party. Amanda and Aaron had a rather large size bridal party (18 total) and both rooms were able to accommodate nicely. The main differences between the bride and groom suites is that the bridal suite had a lot more mirrors, while the groom suite had a TV, couches, and a foosball table. Both rooms had a nice outdoor patio for fresh air – but had plenty of trees and bushes between the two so that you don’t accidentally run into each other!

First Look

I love the way First Look photos often bring out the personalities, and in Amanda and Aaron’s case, I just love how you can see their fun and playful sides come out.

Bride and Groom Portraits at The Castle at Rockwall

Of course, we had to capture the obvious and gorgeous portraits outside the front of the castle (I mean, just look at that!), but I always like to provide a unique kind of portrait for all my couples. So we did just that!

Reception & Dancefloor

The DJ’s setup for the reception and dances was like nothing I’ve seen before. Between both a light-up dance floor and a jumbotron, the dancefloor setup was quite the display!

Grand Champagne Exit

Originally Amanda wanted to do a traditional sparkler exit, but unfortunately sparklers weren’t allowed at the castle. So when she asked me for ideas, I offered something unique: “What about a Champagne Exit?” I was thrilled when they took the idea, and the resulting photos were definitely worth it.
