Derek + Vivian | Wedding at The St. Anthony Hotel

I loved working with Vivian & Derek! September 5th sure is a wonderful date 😉

Vivian & Derek’s wedding day was absolutely beautiful. It was our first time working a wedding at the The St. Anthony Hotel & hopefully not our last! Everything about this historical downtown San Antonio hotel is glamorous & gorgeous in every way possible. From their chic furniture in the lobby, to the hanging chandeliers.

Vivian & Derek decided to share a first look before their ceremony, so we had plenty of time for family photos with their two children & bride & groom portraits. It was a beautiful moment, full of happiness. They decided to exchange gifts with one another & Derek wanted to give a special present to his new daughter. This was such a sweet moment for the family, bringing them all together before the ceremony. I’m so happy that they decided to have a first look, just the two of them & then with their two children. It was so worth it!

Take a peek at their September 5th Wedding day! I think you will love their photos, as much as I do!

Vivan & Derek’s son, ran outside to meet his dad. He was wearing the cutest sign, ever!!


“Daddy here comes mommy”


Ready for their first look…

Once they were ready to head to the ceremony, Derek’s mama wanted to give Vivian a special gift. A handkerchief that belonged to Derek’s grandmother. So beautiful!


This moment. So sweet!

Family formals…

This is my favorite photo from their family formals. I can’t help but laugh!

Baby Alex was on the go & no one was going to stop him!


Yay! There we go! Lol! 🙂


The church that the ceremony was held, is right across the street from the St. Anthony Hotel, so we were able to take a couple of photos outside, before heading inside to their reception!
