Walo & Jay | International Center for Trade, Eagle Pass

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. 😉

Jeanette’s bridesmaids bought her a special gift & gave it to her before she got dressed. A ‘Mrs.’ necklace by Kate Spade. So cute!

2017-11-28_00492017-11-28_0050

Time to get dressed!

2017-11-28_0051

Finishing touches …

2017-11-28_00572017-11-28_0058

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!

2017-11-28_00592017-11-28_00602017-11-28_00612017-11-28_0062

GO ASTROS!

Special moments between mom & daughter. These are the photographs that mean so much to me.

2017-11-28_00652017-11-28_00662017-11-28_00672017-11-28_0068

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.

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.

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.
