Summer Wedding at Hickory Street Annex

Jourdin & Chris’ summer wedding at Hickory Street Annex in Dallas, TX was one of so much happiness and love!  The journey to this amazing day began 4.5 years prior when the two met in class at Coppell High School.  Despite living long distance during majority of their relationship, they grew together in love.  Chris proposed on a hot summer day in the Katy Trail.  He then whisked his soon-to-be-bride off to a surprise engagement party where their family and friends eagerly awaited to celebrate their big news.

From the beginning wedding planning stages, Jourdin knew that she wanted keep things light by going with a gold and white color palette with touches of glam.  Keeping things pretty simple, everything took place at Hickory Street Annex.  The girls spent the day there leisurely getting ready with Maitee Miles doing their makeup and Abby Kugestadt doing their hair.  Her bridesmaids wore a variety of gold dresses.  Jourdin wore a Nicole Miller dress from Nordstom.  They all looked stunning!  The guys arrived later that afternoon and got dressed in a nearby office so they could just walk right over once it was time for pictures to begin.

Soon it was time for the couple’s first look.  Which proved to be Jourdin’s favorite part of the day as she says, “I’d been kind of nervous at the looming duty the bride has of being the center of attention, and I hadn’t seen him all day and was just antsy.  So the first look really put my nerves at ease.  Plus, it was so exciting to finally see him all dressed up!”

The wedding party had a blast taking pictures with Jennefer Wilson Photography and were soon able to relax and take in the beautiful wedding decor for a bit before the ceremony began.  During the wedding ceremony, sister and Matron of Honor, Kelsey, Best Man & best friend, Jesse, & awesome friend of the couple, Jordan, performed a beautiful song, “Forever Like That, Ben Rector“, to capture the couple’s feelings for one another.  Chris sealed the deal with kissing his bride and they became Mr. & Mrs. Chris Hendrix!

As guests moved downstairs for the cocktail reception, the ceremony was transformed into the par-taay area!  The ceremony backdrop created by Branching Out, was re-purposed for the cake back drop.  Cakes were made by Delicious Cakes and the pocket pies were made by Zenzero Bakery.


Guests were then transitioned back up stairs where they feasted their eyes on all the pretties made by Branch Out Floral and Event Design.  Jourdin wanted to contribute some decor herself, so she saved and painted all the gold bottles that held the florals.

Of course it wouldn’t be a true McMinn wedding if Father of the Bride, Woody, didn’t fulfill his tradition of introducing the wedding party!

Kelsey and Seth’s Rustic Vintage Cross Timbers Winery Wedding

One of the best aspects of my job is being surrounded by amazing families during one of the most important time in their lives.  I really get to see love embodied in its truest form and it is a very humbling experience.

Kelsey & Seth Granda’s rustic/vintage wedding at Cross Timbers Winery in Grapevine, TX was one of those beautiful moments.  The respect and love that exuded from their family and friends in support of their upcoming nuptials was felt by all who were privileged to be apart of their special day.  Not only in emotional support, but in demonstration during the wedding.  Kelsey’s sister and maid of honor, Jourdin, designed the wedding invitations and programs while a family friend handled the printing.  A close friend of the family officiated the ceremony.  A long time friend performed “I Have and I Always Will” by Dave Barnes during the family and wedding party processional.  Members of their wedding party played “Forever Like That” by Ben Rector, and “Arithmetic” by Brooke Fraser while the guests and the bridal party partook in communion.  Finally, Kelsey’s dad played the guitar while she and Seth had their first dance to “Making Memories Of Us” by Keith Urban.  Let’s also not forget that her dad announced the entire wedding party using his own special descriptions for each of them.  When Kelsey was asked about these wonderful contributions she simply replied “It’s so powerful when your best friends and your family aren’t only supporting you by standing up there with you, but they also usher guests into moments of tranquility, sweetness, and holiness.  That was very, very special.”

Personal details were adorned tastefully throughout the wedding.  As a sweet token of appreciation, Kelsey proudly displayed her mother and grandmothers’ wedding gowns along with their pictures beside each dress as a way of honoring them for paving the way for their future generations.


Kesley and Seth’s favorite desserts of banana pudding, pocket pies by ZenZero and cupcakes by Sprinkles Cupcakes were served in lieu of a traditional wedding cake.  Her grandmother’s lace dollies, silver overlay vases and milk vases were lovingly placed on the guests’ tables.  Daisies, Kelsey’s favorite flower, were part of the colorful yellow, ivory, peach and touch of grey floral by DIRT.

Kelsey made a few of her own décor pieces that helped tie her theme together.  Inside the barn, she hung large burlap fabric w/ various sized pinwheels along the walls.  She made fabric banners to be hung as backdrops outside.


Who would have known that when they met 4 years and 7 months prior at their school’s orientation week during a concert, they would find the love of their life and say ‘I Do’ forever.  This March wedding was truly the embodiment of unconditional love blessed by God and all those who were there to bear witness.
