Evelyn + Colby are the sweetest couple, and are so completely, completely in love. I first met Evelyn over the phone, and as she described the vision for her wedding day, I couldn’t imagine not being there to capture it. They had a night-time, bohemian wedding at Hotel Emma in San Antonio, Texas.
Peanut butter and jelly. Macaroni and cheese. San Antonio summers and the paleta man. Some things seem to fit so perfectly together that it's hard to imagine one without the other. The first time we sat down with Jack and Liz to talk about their dream wedding we knew that these two belonged on the list. When the day finally arrived, our suspicions were confirmed, and we had the honor of witnessing and capturing a day positively bursting at the seams with love, joy, and beauty. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Jack and Liz for sharing your special day with us - - we wish you endless love and happiness for many years to come!

It's been a far to long since I have blogged a wedding. or blogged at all. I have been so crazy through this season it has been hard to find the time, but I am beyond blessed to have been chosen to document this day for them and so happy to finally share it.
For their May wedding, they thought that with Spring in the air and the "new beginning" that marriage represents, they wanted to incorporate fresh Spring flowers and soft floral colors, with pale pink for the bridesmaids dresses and light gray suits for the groomsmen. They wanted to add lush greenery in to the floral design and were obsessed with what Fresh Urban Flowers did with the garland draped across the head table. Touches of lavender were also added throughout the floral design. Caitlin loves anything lavender (and Jordan says the smell reminds him of her).
The overall decor was "rustic chic," from the wood cake slab, to the antique birdcage for table assignments, to the mason jars on the sign in table. Jordan and Caitlin love wine, which they wanted to show through the wine bottle table number displays and the "LOVE" sign made out of wine corks (on the cake table).
Jordan chose to make a statement with his royal blue custom-made suit from Knot Standard in a traditional double-breasted style, and Caitlin wore a beaded Enzoani wedding gown. To honor her late paternal grandfather, Caitlin wore a bracelet made out of crushed flowers that were displayed at his funeral, and the necklace and earrings belonged to her late maternal grandmother.
Kacy and Blake's Hyatt Hill Country Resort and Spa wedding! Bright and beautiful not only describes this wedding but also Kacy and Blake. From the flowers to to the dancing everything was amazing. Of course if you haven't guessed yet the design and coordination was by the amazing Sweet August Events. San Antonio's best Dj's was also there keeping the evening flowing and the beautiful flowers we carefully and beautifully created by Tuscan Rose. Congratulations Kacy and Blake!

Mission San Juan wedding for Jessica and Damon! What a loving, sweet wonderful couple. It was raining that day but we made the best of it and had a little fun! Congrats Jessica and Damon!
Farrah and Paul decided to get married and with the help of family and friends they did... 5 days later. This modern elopement at Hotel Sorella in Houston Texas was one of my very favorites of 2014. Congrats Farrah and Paul!
True Love never dies. So Eat Cake! Sarah and Sean's small Dia De Los Muertos themed wedding was the perfect mixture of San Antonio flavor and fun. From the cake topper to the view overlooking the Alamo every detail was wonderfully put together. What a way to end the year!

Hot July weddings are some of my favorite. Heather and Bill were joined together in the presents of their friends, family and the hot Texas sun. There are so many wonderful moments from this wedding but since its a blog and I can't choose them all I selected some of my favorites! Congrats Bill and Heather!
If you take a beautiful couple with their beautiful children and put them on a beautiful island you get a Gorgeous wedding! When Seth and Mindy called me and said they were getting married in Turks and Caicos I have to admit that had to check a map. This small island is absolute paradise and a perfect place to exchange your vows. I am so blessed to have these people in my life and it was an honor to be the one capturing these moments for them.
