Astrid & Darren’s two sweet families officially joined during a Catholic ceremony at St. Paul The Apostle Chapel overlooking the beautiful Horseshoe Bay. Astrid’s bouquet was tied with a family heirloom pocket watch which has been carried down the aisle by all the women married in Darren’s family – oh how I love meaningful traditions like this! With impeccable event design and planning by Clink, this couple enjoyed one incredibly stylish reception at the Horseshoe Bay Resort Yacht Club, complete with a mirrored bridal party table, sparkly linens and translucent chairs. The tropical blue skies and palm trees almost make you forget you are in Texas! DJ Kit Kitterman and the Spazmatics joined forces at the reception to ensure everyone had a blast on the packed dance floor! Astrid & Darren topped off the night by singing on stage with the band while props were passed out on the dance floor, before they made their final exit through a tunnel of romantic sparklers. Big congratulations to the newlyweds on their incredible Horseshoe Bay Resort wedding!

Leia and Michael’s swoon-worthy wedding took place in Horseshoe Bay, TX at the lovely Escondido Golf & Lake Club. Thanks to the team at Liv By Designs, who took care of all the special details and brought together a gorgeous day that the families will always remember. As Leia & her father walked down the grand staircase of the Great House, Michael wiped away a single tear and smiled the biggest smile I’ve ever seen. After their ceremony overlooking the green, everyone moved over to La Hacienda to celebrate. A photo booth by Say Cheese, an awesome band from Dallas called New Ground, and a custom cigar rolling station from Bobalu Cigar Co. were just a few of the special touches for the guests. In addition to the gorgeous cake (with gluten-free layer for the bride!) from Simon Lee Bakery, this southern girl could’t help but appreciate the jars of banana pudding as well! YUM! And the final exclamation point to the reception was when Michael hopped on stage with the band and belted out his own song – eventually grabbing Leia onto the stage for some fun! As the couples getaway car departed, the couple was surprised with an awesome fireworks display along the sides of the road. Wow, talk about an exit to this Escondido Golf and Lake Club wedding!!! Congratulations to Leia & Michael, and thank you so much for allowing me to be a part of your big day!!!

I’ve been looking forward to Sidni & Jay’s wedding for months now! We had a blast shooting their unique engagement session at Deep Eddy Cabaret last fall, and I knew their wedding would be every bit as fun. In fact, they were one of the few first couple’s to score an awesome new wedding venue in Horseshoe Bay, TX called Escondido! It was every bit as gorgeous as I had imagined and unfolded into a magical fairy tale day that I couldn’t have even imagined. After a small hiccup that included the bride feeling ill the morning of the wedding, Sidni was the essence of strength, and pulled through just in time for the wedding! Sidni is not only a sweet and magnetic personality, but she is also as beautiful as they come, inside and out. But that hiccup also meant we got to hang out with all the bridesmaids and shoot some fun photos of Jay and his family instead! Note Jay’s super awesome wedding gift from Sidni – fishing reel cuff links! And to top it off, boutineers for the guys with fly fishing lures in them – I love original and personalized ideas like this!! Even the bridesmaid’s gifts were personalized, beautiful brown leather cowboy books with the girls initials stamped into the leather! But Sidni wasn’t left out, luckily, and receive her own personal pair from Jay, too. :) After the party moved over to the Hacienda for the big reception, the couple was in for yet another surprise… right after the dances, everyone was treated to a spectacular surprise firework show behind the stage. Before the dance party wound down, guests were also chowed down on the yummy late-night trailer eats of the Hat Creek Burgers. Then the couple had a spectactular sparkler exit with even more fireworks lining the path of the white limo as they drove off!
