Erica and Josh decided they didn't want to wait any longer to get married.
Miraculously, Erica managed to plan an entire wedding in one week. That's right, one week.
What a cool couple! Ashley and Travis have known each other for years, and there is more history than my blog can do justice. So I'll just mention a few other things. They're untraditional, which I love. That made me get a little untraditional with how I shot their wedding. For starters, I shot the group photos with all of the wedding guests casually milling about in the background. I really like how it turned out. In fact, when I go through all of their photos, there's a definite theme of wedding guests always being visible, from the cake cutting to the dances to the toasts. It really works for their wedding--there were only 70 guests.
Both the wedding and the reception were at the Cross Timbers Winery in Grapevine, Texas. I've actually shot a reception there before years ago, so it was great to return. Maybe I'll be back again.
