Somehow, I always get turned around when I drive through and around Deep Ellum and the Fair Park area. And, yes, I was using my GPS. It must be the one way streets and lack of available U-turns. And the funny thing is that I had been to the Hickory Street Annex just a few weeks prior.
And I got lost then, too.
It’s a good thing I left the house extra early, because I didn’t want to miss an instant of this beautiful spring wedding at the Hickory Street Annex.
They met through friends at a Kelly Clarkson concert.
They are Aggies who both studied abroad.
They love mint chocolate chip ice cream.
And on their wedding day, they were surrounded by family and friends who love them.
Joy is fierce.
Joy is fun.
I got to hang out with the gentlemen in the Annex building pre-ceremony. Here’s Eric getting in the zone.
Eric looking out excitedly, anticipating seeing his lovely bride on their wedding day.
This photo is perfectly imperfect. I love how it captures the essence of Joy’s bridesmaids as they await her walk down the aisle.
A family member records the ceremony on the handy-dandy Flip camera.
I loved this part of the ceremony. The bridesmaids and groomsmen prayed over the couple. Such a touching moment!
Even though I only met Joy and Eric on the day of their wedding, I could tell that they were a couple deeply in love, and that their wedding day was just the beginning of their beautiful journey together.
I love that the guys rocked Chuck Taylor’s and the girls had Tom’s Shoes. Joy’s were extra fancy!
Their cake was adorned with purple buttons and buttercream frosting.
This adorable couple honeymooned in Cinque Terre, Italy, somewhere I have my sights set on. I hear it’s gorgeous!
Thanks to Kelly Hornberger for having me along to shoot Joy and Eric! Thank you Joy and Eric for letting me share in your beautiful celebration!
