A happy bride and groom

Friday, May 30th, 2014

Gloria and Emmanuel had a beautiful pink and gold wedding at everyone’s favorite restaurant in San Antonio, The Monterey.  They were truly the happiest bride and groom, relishing every moment of their day. Gloria sent me a sweet thank you on Facebook…and posted the slideshow (Gloria and Emmanuel are still on their honeymoon in Jamaica, so I thought it’d be fun to send them a wedding sneak peek).  So, here’s Gloria and E’s slideshow…a happy start to the weekend!

A wedding with gigantic pink flowers

Friday, May 2nd, 2014

At Audrey and Tom’s wedding, each bridesmaid carried one gigantic pink flower. So cool! The flower is a Protea flower, and it was one reason of many that Style Me Pretty is featuring this wedding as the big send off into the weekend!

For me, it was a visual treat to photograph. The wedding was at elegantly casual Three Points Ranch. Audrey and her girls wore BHLDN dresses. The ceremony took place in a field of bluebonnets, with Lucy the dog as ringbearer. Tom cracked everyone up when he read his vows from his iPhone. For the reception, Audrey collected vases and mismatched dishes for months and they looked fantastic on the long family style tables. And the evening had some super fun dancing since they flew Smiles Davis, one of The Flashdance DJs out from Los Angeles. She was amazing and yes, all smiles! Congrats Audrey and Tom!

Check out these fantastic invitations from Printerette Press.

British and Texan wedding at Laguna Gloria

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

 Weddings Unveiled is one of my favorite print magazines for weddings and double whammy, they are featuring one of my favorite weddings:  Haley and Andrew’s elegant garden party at Laguna Gloria.  Weddings Unveiled is showing lots of the pretty images, so I’d thought I’d show some of the fun dancing photos and other moments.

First…my attempt at a Gerard Richter (one of Haley’s favorite artists):

Haley’s grandma was special to her and unfortunately she had passed away before the wedding.  Haley brought her grandma’s purse.  Check out the UK-USA pin (honoring both bride and groom’s home countries).  Haley told me that when she opened the purse for the first time, she found a five dollar bill, something her grandma would always have on hand.  Haley has kept that same five dollar bill in the purse and there it was on the wedding day…a sweet connection, love that.

Andrew wore an Alexander McQueen suit.  Three piece!  Gorgeous marine blue (matches his eyes).

Haley and Andrew told me before the wedding that they especially wanted dancing photos of their friends.  Now I see why.  Super animated crowd…I was ready to join  in the fun!
