This was a good day, this wedding day of Erin and Mike’s.

It was a nice, slow morning with Erin and her bridesmaids eating lunch and getting ready at Erin’s super-generous boss’  super-beautiful home . I loved all the time I had for creating detail photos of Erin’s bouquet, shoes, jewelry and dress.

I’m really proud of the pop-culture relevancy of this detail shot of the handkerchiefs Erin’s soon-to-be mother-in-law had gifted her for the wedding.

After final touch-ups at the house, we packed up and headed to the wedding venue — Cityplace.

Sidenote: Erin’s mom was one of the sweetest women I have ever had the pleasure of working with on a wedding day. And that same sweetness was so obviously engrained in Erin too.

Upon arrival, James met up with Mike and his groomsmen while they prepped for wedding party photos before the ceremony.

And the room we got to shoot in? Looooooooved all the dreamy fabric hanging in the open room of the 42nd floor.

Look. at. that. view.

The landscape is pretty cool too, I guess . . .

We finished up with photos in time to take some deep breaths before the ceremony.

After the ceremony we got to head back up to the wonderful 42nd floor for a few more pictures.


And then it was on to the reception, which was a wonderful reflection of Erin and Mike and yet another amazing view of Dallas.

I had never seen a send-off like this before . . .

I love these last couple of images. I know the right image is a bit soft, but I love that it shows that final moment of Erin before the elevator doors closed on her wedding day, with her husband’s hand reaching out to her.

Such a sweet, perfect moment.
