Hickory Street Annex wedding ceremony with Nicolle & Ray shot by Dallas wedding photographer Laura Miller.
Nicolle and Ray were married on a perfect Sunny day at the Hickory Street Annex just outside of downtown Dallas. The Hickory Street Annex is a re-claimed old brick and exposed beam warehouse for a mega-cool modern and urban feel. It’s got lots of windows, a wall of candles, a ceiling with clusters of white lanterns and an awning trimmed in lights for an extra bit of twinkle over their patio that is covered with blooming plants. That patio leads out to a parking lot that is flanked by a neat cement and wine bottle wall and the side of an aged vintage car complete with an opening door. As a Dallas wedding photographer, I seriously love this place and could shoot here a million times and still be thrilled to bits!
I had fun doing Nicolle’s bridals and boudoir sessions, and we talked about her wedding, but I had no idea that she had so much in store for her pink, sparkling, spectacular event. When I walked in, they weren’t even 1/2 done setting up yet and my jaw hit the floor. It was gorgeous! But before I could get lost in the details, I was able to document Nicolle getting her glam on with her bridesmaids while my second shooter got the guys getting ready before we got their group photos. Almost as soon as we got their portraits done and got Nicolle hidden away, we grabbed the detail photos (I’m going to make you wait for all of that goodness until second part of their wedding posts… MUAHAHA!) and then it was go time for their ceremony. Their ceremony was short and sweet, but featured a hand binding ceremony that I thought was extra cool, complete with a special ribbon that Nicolle had adorned with charms that had special meaning to them and their relationship. I love those personal touches! Before you know it, Nicolle and Ray were hitched and it was time to PARTY! More on that later, but for now, here is the first installment of their photos!
