I’ve known Jamie for a long, long time. I was beyond stoked she flew me out to Dallas to shoot her and Tony’s wedding. It wouldn’t have mattered what the wedding was like. They could have been wearing sweatpants and gotten married in a gas station and I would have been up for it. The fact that it was one of the most unique, fun, and beautiful weddings I’ve been to was just icing on the cake.
I’m not a huge traditionalist. Not to say traditions can’t be fun or meaningful, but I think a wedding should be personal to the bride and groom. It should reflect who they are and what their love is, no matter what traditions say. That’s why Jamie and Tony’s wedding kicks a lot of ass. (I can say that, right?) Your wedding dress doesn’t have to be white. It can be black. The groom can rock his stellar mohawk, wear a white tux, and cut your punk rock cake with his switchblade. You gotta be you, because no one else can. In the end, their love is as sweet and deep as any other I’ve seen.
Here are some of my favorite images from their wedding in the Deep Ellum neighborhood of Dallas, TX.
