The best way to describe Jay & Walo’s wedding day? Perfection.
Every single detail & moment was so special. We traveled to their hometown of Eagle Pass for their ceremony & reception. Surrounded by their loving families & amazing friends, they shared their vows. The International Center for Trade is a beautiful reception venue and the decor was absolutely gorgeous!! So many beautiful details!
I really love how close Jay & Walo are to their families. You can truly tell how loved they are & in return, how important family values are to this beautiful couple.
There was no way I was able to narrow down the photos, as much as I tried! Here are my absolute faves from Jeanette & Eduardo’s wedding day. There are a lot of faves. 😉
No words for these beauties.
Jay’s grandma made her headband, isn’t it gorgeous?
How gorgeous are Jeanette’s bridesmaids!?
Jeanette’s sister Monique had me laughing the entire day. She made sure her sister was having the best day ever!
LOVE this photo of Jeanette with her mom & sister.
Jeanette’s bridesmaids bought her a special gift & gave it to her before she got dressed. A ‘Mrs.’ necklace by Kate Spade. So cute!
Time to get dressed!
Love this photo of Jay’s grandma helping her get dressed. So special!
Mama couldn’t hold back the tears, as she helped her daughter get dressed.
Finishing touches …
Jeanette really wanted to do a first look with her dad & brother before heading to the ceremony. Of course, we had to make that happen!
Special moments between mom & daughter. These are the photographs that mean so much to me.
As we arrived to the ceremony. Jeanette waited in the car, as guests began to make their way into the church. Eduardo approached me & gave me a letter to deliver to his soon to be wife. A love letter. The photos speak for themselves.
Excitement & emotion filled the church as Jeanette & her father began to walk down the aisle.
Love that dad looked at his baby girl one more time before taking a step away.
Mr. & Mrs. Soto
Before heading to the reception, we headed around the corner to a little hidden gem for portraits. I’m so happy we had the opportunity to take even more family portraits. These are so gorgeous & the light was perfect.
Soon, I will be working with Jeanette’s brother Trey & his fiancé Victoria. I can’t wait! So excited for their March 2018 wedding!
How stylish is this bridal party? Goodness! Had so much fun working with them.
These bouquets tho!
Do you recognize Jay’s MOH Kayla? She was my June 1017 bride, love her! ❤
Looking sharp guys!
Time for Bride & Groom portraits. Yay!
Using every bit of light for their bride & groom portraits!
How gorgeous is Jay’s veil? It’s the same one that her mother wore. Beautiful!
Time for the reception. My jaw dropped when I walked in …
I could not get over how beautiful everything looked!
Their cake was truly a work of ART!
Love my Cupcake Couples! ❤
Jeanette’s family asked for us to join them for dinner (which was absolutely delicious by the way!) I still couldn’t help, but to photograph the special little details around us though.
Maid of Honor & Best Man speeches
Jay’s little sister Monique’s speech was so sweet.
Walo’s brother/best man’s speech was wonderful & from the heart. You couldn’t help but to tear up as he expressed himself to his brother.
& yes, I cried too. Couldn’t help it! 😦
Time for introductions!
Y’all are next! Literally! My next wedding is Victoria & Tray’s wedding! Is it March yet??Hehe!

WHAT A DREAM!
Seriously looked like a fairy tale.
Imagine my surprise when I saw these photos. My husband got ON the stage with the band! I’m glad he did, because these are awesome!
Mama of the bride with her friend & wedding coordinator. Who was phenomenal by the way. Rebecca was amazing.
Time for the bouquet & garter toss!
What are these guys up to??
:O my face when the guys made a CIRCLE around the bride & groom. That didn’t stop me from getting the pictures I wanted though! 🙂
Time for more dancing & more fun!
This little ring bearer was ready for mimis. He went into the dance floor with his blankie. So cute!
Bubble exit for the win!
LOVE those smiles!
Walo & Jay, thank you for a WONDERFUL wedding day. I am so grateful to the two of you & your amazing families. I have no words for your wedding. It was literally a dream come true. Everything about it was so incredibly special. I get goosebumps looking through your photos, because I still can’t believe what a perfect day it was.
Your love for each other is evident. Your families are wonderful, wonderful people, but you both know that already. We were blown away by the hospitality that was shown to us & we are so incredibly grateful. We wish you a lifetime of love & happiness.
