Jafet + Raquel | Wedding day at Creekside Driftwood

So excited to share more of Jafet & Raquel’s June wedding.

Emerald green, Navy blue & Orange decorated their gorgeous wedding. I was really looking forward to working at the beautiful Creekside wedding venue located in Driftwood, Texas.  Austin Hill Country is a really sweet sight! Creekside is located on a hill top, with the beautiful river right below!

Jafet is actually a photographer too. It’s pretty exciting when another photographer can trust you with his/her day!

Take a peak into their wedding day!

Bridal details.

I love details so much. They really tell the story of your entire day. It’s also a great way for me to ‘warm up’ for the wedding day as well. That’s a really big reason why I encourage my brides to take ‘getting ready’ photos.

Hair & makeup…

Ceremony held at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses. Austin, Texas.


Isn’t Raquel’s wedding dress gorgeous!? I loved everything about it. The beading & the sleeves were so lovely.

Raquel has a love for all things vintage, I love that her wedding dress portrays that love too!

I always get a little teary eyed when daddy gives away his baby girl…

Raquel’s big brother & his wife were the witnesses! They also gave them their rings. I thought that was so sweet!


Look at Jafet’s smile! He’s so excited to put a ring on it 😉


Mr. & Mrs. Yay! 🙂


Loving those smiles!!


After their ceremony, Jafet & Raquel decided to greet their guests from the stage. I loved that! They have the chance to see who attended their ceremony, take in that moment & hug their loved ones right away. It’s such an exciting moment!

Jafet & Raquel decided to take outdoor family formals at their wedding venue, so we took a couple of formal portraits of just the two of them, before we left to Creekside!


How cute is Raquel’s manicure!? 😉

Love this!!


How gorgeous is Raquel’s wedding day bouquet? It was actually done by my bride Xilma (who I worked with in May!). She volunteered to make all the flower arrangements for Jafet & Raquel, and let me tell you, she did an amazing job!

2015-06-22_0072 I asked for Raquel & Jafet to take their bride & groom portraits after they ate dinner, so we were able to take advantage of the sunset! Here are some of my favorites, so difficult to narrow them down, because I have so many 😀



Love, love, love!
