The Filter Building is one of my favorite Dallas wedding venues. As a history major, I love venues with history. There is something so cool about getting married in a place that has a story. The Filter Building was built in 1922 as a filtration site for Dallas’ water, (hence the name). The Filter Building is a fantastic place for wedding photos- the exposed brick, the lakeside views- it is absolutely picturesque!
If a wedding’s success was measured on good vibes, this one shot through the roof. The entire wedding captured the unique love between Patrick and Tracey. It was a gorgeous day summer day, not too hot with a slight breeze (which is incredibly uncharacteristic for a July wedding in Dallas).
Patrick had built with his own two hands numerous pieces featured at the wedding (including the main altarpiece and the bar!) Tracey and her dad’s first look was amazing— he looked overjoyed seeing her all done up. My cheeks hurt from smiling throughout the entire interaction. And then Patrick seeing his bride for the first time— wowzers. It was so emotional and beautiful. It was, how I think all brides want their future husbands to react for the first time. If I was Tracey I would have felt like the most gorgeous person in the ENTIRE world walking down that aisle. And then the reception was so incredibly fun. They had family from Canada, and boy do they know how to turn up. It was definitely one for the books.
