When I first received Sofia’s email for her July 4th wedding, my heart skipped a beat. From the first couple of email exchanges I had with Sofia, I knew that we were going to be a great fit for each other! I had received her email while we were away on a trip, and as soon as we got back to Texas, I texted Sofia right away & set up an online meeting with her! Sofia & Abe live in Florida, so we weren’t able to have a consultation in person, like I normally do! Even through our facetime meeting, I felt like we had been friends for years!
I have to admit, I was nervous to meet my bride & groom for the first time in person on their actual wedding day, but as soon as we arrived, I went to say hi to Sofia & was greeted with a big hug!
Everything about their wedding day was so special. Every detail from the bracelet made by her mother, with the very lace her grandmother wore, to the cowboy boots the bride received from her older brother, to the daisies in mason jars that adorned each table.
Surrounded by family & friends, their ceremony and reception was held at Boulder Springs Events in New Braunfels, Texas.
Take a peak at their July 4th Wedding day! I think you will love it, as much as I do!

My face when I saw Boulder Springs: 😀
If you have the opportunity to have your ceremony & reception at the same location, this is one of the perks. An empty reception hall, fully decorated before guests begin to arrive, that is pretty special!
Loved the center pieces. Daisies, baby breath, in mason jars. Oh, and we can’t forget the gold antlers.
A table dedicated to Sofia’s father.
I loved everything that had to do with Sofia’s details. From her boots given to her as a gift from her brother, to that beautiful sash that adorned her wedding dress. So pretty!!
Sofia’s mama made her that bracelet with the very lace that Sofia’s grandmother wore. How special is that?
Boulder Springs has a really nice Bridal Suite. Lots of mirrors!
Ready to pop the champagne!
Abe & Sofia told each other that they weren’t going to give each other gifts on the day of their wedding. Of course, Abe had other plans. He sent a gift her way, a gorgeous bracelet with a tiny heart.
Ready to put on the dress! Love this photo!
Ceremony time…look at Abe’s smile! 🙂
Sofia’s mama & her older brother walked her down the aisle…
Together at last!
Sofia’s veil had me swoonin’!
Mr. & Mrs. Yay!!!
A little mid aisle kiss never hurt nobody! 😉
Love, love, love this bridal party look.
& the girls wore boots! 😉
That’s it. I’m getting myself a pair of cowboy boots!!!
“Y’all hug Abe!” … they did good! Lol!
When your bride & groom take shots before the reception begins…
Yea, this is going to be a good party! My kinda couple! 😉
Love these photos that my 2nd shooter took (aka my hubs!)
Abe took every opportunity to spin, kiss and dip Sofia!! WE LOVED THAT!
Right after Abe & Sofia were finished eating dinner, we headed back outside to take advantage of the golden hour. We took their bride & groom portraits, while the rest of their guests finished eating.
One of my favorites from their wedding day…
You are so cute Sofia!!
Ready to party!!!
Sofia was surprised with Mariachis!
Yup, it was a FUN reception.
Bouquet & garter toss…
Dancing, so much dancing!
Nothing better than a sparkler photo of just the bride & groom. Romantic indeed.
Thank you so much Abe & Sofia for picking me to photograph your special day. We loved working with the both of you!
