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!
After the first dance, guests enjoyed a delicious dinner by CN Catering and listened to entertaining toasts given by the couple’s closest family and friends.
Even though the wedding took place on a Sunday evening, you would never know it by the way everyone danced the night away with DJ Dilly mixing the beats. It really was a fantastic time had by all! DWeddings even got in on the action! We were so honored to have been apart of the second McMinn family wedding. Congratulations McMinn/Hendrix families! You truly hold a special place in our hearts.
