I had conversed with Annabelle over email for months before actually getting to meet her and Jamie in person. Instantly, her Venezuelan accent made me feel at home (my Brazilian sister, Mariana, sounds almost exactly the same- well, to this Texan anyway). I got to hear about their meeting and their wedding day plans...I loved seeing how this couple had a simple vision for the day that still incorporated so many special people.
She and Jamie were such a pleasure to work for and photograph. Their wedding was at Tierra del Corazon, in New Deal, Texas. It was a beautiful night and getting to work with this loving and affectionate couple was just icing on the cake. I could have shot in the fields out there forever!
Annabelle filled a "unity piñata" with candy and they broke it at the reception. They did forget the rope to hang it with, but it made it even more fun that they had to hold it for each other. It was a fun detail that everyone loved!
