Andrew + Barbie | Wedding at Plaza Lecea

I loved working with Barbie & Andrew. From our first time meeting each other at Starbucks for their consultation, to their engagement session at the gorgeous King William district, we have had a wonderful journey working together! That’s what I love about working with couples on their wedding day. It really is a journey that we go through together. I’m there from the beginning, meeting them nervously & hoping they like me, enough to want me to be there on the day they become husband & wife. It’s such a big day! Two families coming together & of course, I love every second of it! Especially when I get to work with an awesome couple & their amazing families.

Barbie & Andrew’s wedding day was filled with so much love. Family, friends, from San Antonio & even those who came from out of town too. You can tell how much their family & friends loved them.

Weddings are so much more than just the decoration that adorns a reception hall. It’s more about those little details that bring the entire day together. Β From the pearls that belonged to her grandmother, to her mother helping her into her dress, it was a day filled with so much emotion & those small, but incredibly significant details matter! To top it off, their venue, Plaza Lecea is incredibly beautiful & I always love working there!

Take a peek into their wedding day!

I was really loving Barbie’s beautiful details. You can’t go wrong with grandma’s pearls, classic style πŸ˜‰

Can we talk about Barbie’s dress for a second? Actually, let’s not talk, let’s just stare & sigh. I loved it.

The bridal party went on their way, while Barbie & Andrew stayed for their bride & groom portraits. I loved that time with them. I could have been there with them, for hours.

After dinner, we headed outside to the balcony & took a few more photos. The sun went down quickly, but we were still able to take some pretty portraits before the party got started.
