Working with Addison & Katie was absolutely wonderful. I feel like it was just yesterday when I met with Katie & her mama at our consultation, a year before her wedding. As soon as our consultation finished & I headed back to my car, I was really hoping that Katie would book me for her wedding day! The next day Katie sent me a text that she was ready to become a Cupcake Bride! YAY!
We LOVE weddings at The Springs in New Braunfels. As soon as we walked into the Legacy venue, my jaw dropped. Every table setting, unique & so special. So many pretty details, we almost didn’t know where to start. Turquoise colors, rustic, woodsy with a splash of romance. Just my type of wedding!
Take a look at their wedding day slideshow HERE!
I wanted to say thank you so much to my wonderful couple & their families for treating my husband & I with such kindness. I felt like I was photographing for old friends and that is the BEST feeling when you are a wedding photographer. Addison, Katie & their families treated us with respect & love. Checking up on me, making sure I ate, that I was drinking enough water, that I grabbed myself a piece of cake. Not gonna lie, there are perks to being a prego wedding photographer 😉
Y’all know how much I love detail photos!
Getting ready … I love getting ready photos. It really helps to tell your wedding day story & it also gives me the opportunity to get to know your bridal party a little bit better.
Loved this idea. How many years each bridesmaid has known Katie …
& how they met …
While I’m downstairs with the girls in the bridal suite, Ivan is upstairs with the guys!
Addison getting ready…
Time to get dressed…
These photos with mom are super special. I always ask for mama to be dressed before she gets her baby girl dressed. It makes the photos look really pretty & I think after all the hustle & bustle mom goes through to make sure everything is in place, well she deserves to look nice during this moment as well 🙂
A moment with her girls before heading out…
Daddy & Daughter first look. This moment always makes me teary eyed.
Many of my brides would like to keep the tradition of not seeing their soon to be husband before the ceremony. A tradition that I respect & can appreciate myself. That’s why I recommend to do a first look with dad. Usually (not all the time) the fathers of my brides do not see their daughter’s in their wedding dresses until the day of. Even if they do, it’s so different when they see their little girls, all dressed up & ready to start a new chapter.
Katie decided she really wanted to do a first look with her dad & this is that moment.
Gifts for Katie’s mom & dad …
Without seeing each other, we were able to bring Katie & Addison outside for photographs with their parents.
Katie & Addison decided to have an ‘unplugged wedding’ during their ceremony. No cameras & no cell phones.
Loving these colors!
I loved the way Katie & her dad held hands walking down the aisle. I thought that was incredibly sweet.
Look at that view!
YES! Now that is a first husband & wife kiss!
Up next are family formals. Here are just a few: starting with Katie’s family…
All together with Addison’s parents as well!
Had to take this picture! Having both of their parents, married. I truly believe this is the type of photo, that will be cherished by their future children. How special!
Bridal party photos. Starting with the gals.
You girls were a blast to work with!
My favorite out of their bridal part photos. For sure!
Of course, one of my favorite parts of a wedding day, bride & groom portraits!
So pretty Katie!
Now let’s move on to this gorgeous reception! We love working at The Springs New Braunfels!
Gloria from Your Day Your Way – Event Planning is absolutely wonderful! She does an amazing job! I always look forward to working with her.
