As it normally goes when I meet with a couple for the first time, I sat down with Norma & Santos to discuss their Wedding Plans and asked them to tell me their story.
I then got to hear how they met in high school, and then the sweet way Santos proposed…literally in a helicopter!!
The way he and her told the story…a literal fairy tale come true for any girl.
Working with couples so madly in love is just THE BEST!
Santos and Norma chose to have their Wedding celebration at Brownstone Reserve in Bryan, TX, which is just a stunning venue!
The girls were getting ready in the other room, and I could hear laughter and giggles. They were having a great time getting all primped by the girls of MediSpa and Salon, and looking so beautiful!
As I finished photographing all the pretty little details, Chris was with the guys capturing Santos getting ready as well.
The Wedding Ceremony was held at a beautiful little church in their hometown of Giddings. They had a traditional Mass, to include all of the traditional symbols in the Hispanic culture like exchanging special coins during the Ceremony and having a close family member put a beautiful lasso around them during part of the service. These are all such beautiful and special traditions to witness.
After the Wedding Ceremony we headed back to Brownstone Reserveto capture portraits of the Wedding Party and Norma & Santos before the party really got started!
During the Wedding Ceremony it had begun to rain, fairly hard, but by the time we arrived back at Brownstone Reserve it had calmed to a drizzle.
I always say, if we can find a little ledge even, something to keep them under for a few portraits we can make it work! And we did just that!
Brownstone Reserve has just enough covered on the back patio, with their ornate door and beautiful stone work that makes a gorgeous backdrop.
I also brought along a clear umbrella, so while I had the Party/Couple under the ledge Chris held that over me so my camera stayed safe. Then we flipped it! We gave Norma + Santos the umbrella and had them go onto the bridge that Brownstone Reserve has in the back for a few portraits with Brownstone Reserves gorgeous backyard as the backdrop!
It all worked out so perfectly and was just beautiful!
After portrait time was over, we went inside to being the Wedding Reception. It was go go go! They had dinner then dances and games! There was even a point where they started throwing Santos in the air! They were a lively bunch, and we had so much fun capturing it all!
Norma & Santos, we are so excited for you! Thank you so much for giving us the honor of capturing your Wedding Day. We hope these pictures bring you joy for a lifetime!
