Back in December, I posted a blog about the engagement session I shot for my sweet friends Hannah and Mario (You should read it. Shameless plug. That engagement session was killer!). In February, they made the dang thing official by getting married in Dallas at the Filter Building on White Rock Lake. SO much of this day was the best kind of sentimental and sap since I was watching one of my closest friends marry the man she loves BUT, since you weren't there to appreciate the tiny aspects that made the day extra special, I'll highlight three that I know mean a ton to Hannah:
- Hannah used her childhood bedroom to get ready (awww)
- Hannah's wedding band came from her mother's original wedding band
- Hannah's mom and her mom's cousins surprised the couple with a choreographed dance to "Dear Future Husband" and "Single Ladies" (the reactions will always be my faves)
Not only was the day totally beautiful and classy (like Hannah...duh) but seeing Mario's eyes fill with tears as she walked down the aisle...ugh. That is what sets my soul on fire, both as a wedding photographer and as a friend. The only thing better than getting to celebrate love for a living is when I get to celebrate it with my friends. Plus, ya know, I got to dance a lot, which is always a win in my book.
Congratulations Rodriguezes. You freakin did it! And I am so grateful you let me capture it for you. You da best!
