When Mila and I met with Mary for the first time we knew that this wedding was going to be a special one. We talked about different options for making their day the best as possible and Mary was orginized and ready to go which makes our job and the over all day amazing.
When we pulled up to the venue we were amazed by cute chapel next to the lake with a huge fountain shooting into the air. It was like this venue was thought up by a million brides who wanted the absolute best layout for their day.
We made our way up to the house where Mary was getting ready and we were amazed at how awesome Publito Veijo was. the house was gorgeous and was set up for whatever a wedding day would call for. We started capturing as Mary and her family got ready and we could tell the love they have for each other was going to make this day very special.
We went up to see Gustavo and capture him getting ready as well and all of his daughters were there helping him making sure he was ready for the ceremony. We captured a very special moment when I was interviewing Gustavo and a rush of emotions hit him and everyone in the room. Directly after I told Mila that moment is why we do what we do, its to capture memories that will last.
The ceremony began and there were tears of joy and all over it was so special. As the day went on the couple did a special dance called “La Vibora” (as seen in the picture below where they are standing on chairs) The Ladies went first as they were holding hands and dancing around. Then it was the guys turn and they were trying to knock Gustavo of his chair and they did! after they knocked him down one of the guys grabbed him and started carrying Gustavo to a fountain where he proceeded to throw him in. Luckily Gustavo had a extra suit to put on and come back out to party.
Being a part of this special day made me realize that what we do has more importance than just a job but it could be life changing if we do it right and still I’m always honored when people choose me to capture their special moments.
Congrats Mary and Gustavo and thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!
Laura and Bill had were some of the funnest people Mila and I have had the pleasure of shooting for. I was able to capture there rehearsal dinner and that’s when I knew it was going to be a fun time.
I just remember the whole time people saying ” Y’all Ready?” and it made me chuckle every time. It was so cool to see how their families already had such a cool bond like that where they had special lingo / inside jokes.
Shooting at the Memory Lane Event Center always makes for a fun time and its a great venue for people to have everything in one location and not have to worry about too much outsourcing for their wedding. The staff is always a pleasure to work with and it makes for an easy and top notch wedding day for couples.
I remember close to the beginning of the ceremony “Molly Bear” Laura and Bill’s dog running down the aisle and jumping onto the platform it was really cute they had her dressed up real nice too.
As the night progressed everyone at some point was on the dance floor cutting a rug to some songs from the 80’s and 90’s it was so much fun you can see on the highlight video as well. Both moms seemed to have danced the entire time and it didn’t eve matter what song was on they were just so happy to be there celebrating with their children.
Congrats Laura and Bill and thank you for letting us be a part of your special day!
I had the privilege of shooting Megan and Jim’s rehearsal dinner at Carmelo’s in downtown Austin. I knew the wedding day was going to be special when I arrived and everyone was talking to each other, hugging, laughing, and Megan and Jim weren’t even there yet! A special moment that stood out to me during the dinner is when Megan and Jim stood up to give some direction for the following day and uncle mark had a question about the shuttle taking everyone to the venue from the hotel and wondering if the bus were to leave anyone behind. Everyone busted out laughing and Jim responded saying “Its alright we will make sure you get on the shuttle.”
Their whole day was so nice and special and a lot had to do with the love the whole family had for each other. Villa St. Clair is a very nice venue and is built for weddings, the staff is always great to work with and it makes for the wedding day to go smoothly and be at its best.
Getting to interview Megan and Jim before the ceremony was special to see and hear the excitement the two of them had for this special occasion. The ceremony was very special and it was easy to see the Love everyone had for the lovely couple.
During the cocktail hour everyone mingled and got to listen to and amazing saxophone player all while eating and enjoying the photo-booth.
The reception was a blast with the heartwarming speeches of everyone alongside hilarious stories and what seemed like an un-ending dance party!
Below you can see what i was able to capture of Megan and Jim’s spectacular day. Congrats Megan and Jim!
