Its not every day I am able to share such an intimate wedding ceremony with two people. I first met Jamie and Beau at a local Starbucks where she showed me her wedding binder. As we flipped through the pages, she turned to a style page and I was more than excited to let her know one of the images she found on Google and printed for her book was actually mine! They got married at a very quaint justice of the peace wedding ceremony in Richardson, Texas. The Dallas County Government Center was bustling with people, but as I sat with the two of them, they acted as they were the only two on earth. The excitement was in the air as they waited to be called back for their appointment for forever. I met the two of them that morning and our plans originally didn’t include any photography at the actual civil ceremony, but I just had to tell the whole story. Its sweet, its romantic and so very intimate. I admit to having eyes filled with tears during the sweet ceremony in the judge’s chambers. They exchanged vows in front of a bookcase filled with law books. Simple, sweet and perfect for them!
After they exchanged their sweet vows we made our way down to Hickory Street Annex in Dallas Texas and there we spent the next couple of hours documenting two very sweet newlyweds. After a wedding, I love setting aside time to photograph the new married couple. Its a time to take it all in and they realize….”WE ARE MARRIED!”. Its very romantic and sweet. I was ecstatic to be able to spend this time with Jamie and Beau…they were beaming with joy! After our time together, the couple was off to enjoy a relaxing honeymoon as newlyweds.

Amy, these are very sweet images. Every story deserves to be told and they will be glad years from now that you took it upon yourself to capture the little moments that add up to the “I DO”!
