We had a wedding the night before Juliana and Andrew's wedding. That's nothing new for us. We regularly shoot multiple weddings in a weekend. However, this was a bit different. Our wedding on Saturday night was in Austin and Julianna and Andrew's wedding on Sunday was in Dallas. So, after we finished our wedding in Austin, we drove home, loaded the car, and headed out to Dallas that night. We didn't want to risk driving in the morning because you never know what might happen on the road and we wanted to make sure we got to Dallas for Julianna and Andrew's wedding. We arrived in Dallas around 5 in the morning. We slept for a few hours and then it was off to the wedding.
Elena and I both expected to be really tired the entire day...but, we weren't. And, it is all because of Julianna and Andrew. Both of them have such a great positive energy. You can't help but feel upbeat and excited when you are around them. They are both so kind and made us feel like family from the moment we arrived. Actually, that isn't even true. We felt like family from the first time I spoke with Julianna's mother on the phone. Our job, in general, is pretty great. It's the best job ever when we get to work with such nice people!
Julianna and Andrew's wedding was at a beautiful church in Dallas. We spent some time before the ceremony taking pictures of Julianna and her bridesmaids and Andrew and his groomsmen. Julianna's dress was one of the most beautiful wedding dresses we have seen and she looked gorgeous! After the ceremony, we took some family pictures and then the newlyweds led us to a really cool little park area not far from the church. There was an awesome waterfall and lots of trees. We spent just a few minutes taking pictures of Julianna and Andrew in that area. The pictures are beautiful! After their mini-shoot, everyone headed to the reception hall. Dinner was great. Music played. People danced. Andrew...sang a song to Julianna!!! It was the highlight of the evening. And, then we all ate cheesecake (it was really, really good). It was so nice to see Julianna and Andrew smiling and being congratulated by their friends and family all evening.
Julianna and Andrew, thank you for searching far and wide for a photographer. We are so glad that ya'll looked past Dallas and found us down in little ol' Kyle. Thank you for letting us spend a wonderful day with you! Congratulations on your wedding and we wish you a lifetime of happiness together!
