Kayla + Jose | Wedding at The Oaks at Heavenly

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.ย 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. Thatโ€™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.

    Abby, what an eye for detail. I’ve gotten compliments from relatives and friends from out of state who were unable to attend but feel as if they were there from the pictures. I can never thank you guys enough for the beautiful memories you have given us. We treasure our friendship with you both. Thank you so much.
