I think you would all agree with me, that Kayla & Jose are a beautiful couple! They were all smiles on their wedding day. They could not contain their excitement & joy! Surrounded by amazing friends & their families, they joined as husband & wife and let me tell you, it was a GORGEOUS day!
The week started off, by showing thunderstorms in the forecast on their wedding day. When it comes to Texas weather, it can be very unpredictable. For whatever reason though, I wasn’t worried about the rain. I knew, either rain or shine, they would have a beautiful day. Well, needless to say, it did not rain. Instead we had a gorgeous sunset & an actual breeze. Yes, a breeze in the month of June. How amazing is that?
The Oaks at Heavenly, LLC is a brand new venue, Nestled in between gorgeous trees on a hilltop in Helotes, Texas – it’s a perfect setting for a wedding. I’m so happy I had the opportunity to work at their beautiful venue and I can’t wait to be back soon.
I knew from just a couple of email exchanges that Kayla & I would get along perfectly! When we finally met in August of last year, it was like we had been friends for years. That’s exactly how I felt while working with the two of them. During their engagement session, I felt so incredibly inspired working with them, so I knew their wedding wouldn’t be any different. Of course, Kayla’s bridal session was also just as amazing.
Their love is gravitating & magnetic. You can’t help but smile while looking at them. Kayla & Jose, thank you so much for choosing Cupcake to photograph your special day. From your engagement session, Kayla’s bridal portraits & your wedding day … every single session has been amazing. I have loved working with the two of you!
So let’s dive into their wedding day, starting with Kayla’s bridal details.
Kayla’s Pronovias wedding dress was STUNNING.
HEB Blooms always does an amazing job!
While I am working with the girls, Ivan is working with the guys. Love these shots of the guys just hanging out before they head back inside to get dressed.
The photos of Kayla getting ready, are so special. I loved that her mom, grandma & the bridesmaids were all able to have a part in her getting ready.
Look how happy mama looks.
Absolutely love this photo of Kayla & her grandma!
Maid of honor duties 🙂
This photo though!
I love taking as many photos as possible all before the ceremony. Perfect time for a grandpa & grand-daughter first look! So sweet!!
Lots of photos with Kayla & her side of the family!
Loving this color combo!
I will also be working with Kayla’s Maid of Honor, Jeanette, in November 2017! SO EXCITED!

Once we were done with Kayla’s side of the family & bridesmaid, we tucked her back into the bridal suite & brought out Jose.
Groomsmen. Looking sharp guys.
These guys were too funny. I’m looking forward to working with this group again soon.

This bridal party! Loved working with them.
Bride & Groom portraits are up next. Can I just print them all & hang them up on my walls? Is that weird? Yes? Ugh, okay.
Seriously Kayla? You are stunning!!!

Sun came out for just a little bit!
I can’t get enough of these two. If I could have, I would have just spent hours photographing the two of them.
Let’s get into reception details

When I sat down for dinner, Ivan pointed out the little thank you boxes on the table. I take a look inside & found this gem. HOW CUTE IS THAT!?
