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!

I met Derek outside on the top floor. They have this beautiful outdoor terrace. We had to find a good place that would be private for just the two of them & away from guests.
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…
Look at that smile 😀
Love these moments during a first look. A groom admiring his bride…

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!

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!
Absolutely adore this!
Time to party!
First dance as husband & wife…
Vivan shared a dance with her mom & her dad…

Time to toss that bouquet 😉
Ending the night with more dancing!
Thank you so much Vivian & Derek for allowing me to photograph your gorgeous wedding day. I had such an awesome time working the two of you & your family and friends!
