Bianca + Larry | Max Mandel Golf Course Wedding

This wedding season has taken me to many different corners of my home state, Texas.

San Antonio, Houston, Dallas, and now Laredo for Bianca and Larry’s Max Mandel golf course wedding!

Affectionately known as “The Max” (anyone else think of Saved by the Bell when they hear this?), this was a stunner of a wedding.

Clear skies, spanish tile, gold accents, bougainvillea draped canopies…..it was lovely.

Bumped up right next to the Mexican border, The Max is directly in view of the Rio Grande!

Bianca and Larry are Laredo natives and own a lovely home there!

Larry shares my love of super cheeseball horror movies and we both think Nightmare on Elm Street 3, Dream Warriors was the best of the entire NOES collection!

Bianca seems to be a killer sport about the whole thing!

Phebe from Making Me Events helped design and coordinate this bad boy!

I know these two had a blast on their St. Lucia honeymoon! Many congrats to the couple!

Can’t get enough of Bianca and Larry? Check out their San Antonio portrait session here!

One of my favorite moments from their ceremony was Bianca’s brother drying his sister’s tears.

Kristen + Conor | South Congress Engagement Session

I loved this South Congress engagement session with Kristen and Conor!

Kristen and Conor met in the Hamptons, fell in love, rocked it in NYC for a few years and are now living in Texas!

Let me tell you guys, these two must have some killer genes going on.

Not only are they in the midst of planning a wedding NEXT MONTH and raising their infant son, but Conor is also super duper sick in these photos. : (

They look so bright eyed (Conor totally ponied up!) you would never know.

At certain angles I think Kristen looks a bit like Daenerys Targaryen (albeit happier and probably a lot more fun to have a beer with) from Game of Thrones.

Anyone else pumped for the new season?

Also are those green shoes off the chain or what? I love them!

We cruised down the strip before ending up at Cafe´No Se´ for their epic Earl Gray ice cream!

Many congrats to both of you and I cannot wait for your Mercury Hall wedding next month!

Natalie + Bryan | Southwest School of Art Wedding

This “UP” themed Southwest School of Art wedding was so darling!

Set in San Antonio with pops of color everywhere! Love it!

Natalie and Bryan are doctors y’all! Like big brained, smarty pants, savin’ lives kind of doctors!

They’ve been doing the long distance thing for years and even had to separate again one day after their wedding. #sadface.

Natalie is a DIY hero and almost everything included her handywork! The bride even did all her own flowers!

These two are absolutely hilarious and I’m so thankful I was there to photograph their colorful wedding day!

Oh and many congrats to Natalie for matching with freaking YALE for her residency! Way to be a boss girl! New Haven is so lucky!

Other vendors involved include the following!

Imogene Goodman from Elated Weddings held coordinate this thing!
