Moe + Olivia | Wedding at San Fernando Cathedral + Rio Plaza | San Antonio, Texas

From the very moment I first met Olivia, it was as if I was meeting with a friend for coffee. She has the BEST laugh ever & I loved learning about her love story. How she met Moe, their wedding day plans and how their two cultures would come together to create a gorgeous celebration! Surrounded by their close family & friends, they had a beautiful wedding day. Two beautiful cultures coming together to create a beautiful family- this is why I LOVE photographing weddings!

Thank you to San Antonio Weddings for featuring their wedding day. You can check out the article here!

I love this getting ready photo. Olivia got ready at Hotel Contessa in downtown San Antonio. Such a pretty hotel!

Olivia had her two sisters & Moe’s two sisters as her bridesmaids.

Olivia wanted to make sure Moe also had a special moment with his mom too. So we set up a first look for the two of them. I thought this was such a sweet moment!

We almost didn’t think we would have enough time for a daddy daughter first look. I knew it was so important to Olivia though, so as soon as I saw dad, I set him up for his first look with his daughter. This happened about 5 to 10 minutes before the ceremony was about to start, but honestly it was soooo worth it.

The weather in January was so perfect! It was a sunny, chilly day, but not cold at all!!

2019-06-24_00572019-06-24_00582019-06-24_00592019-06-24_00602019-06-24_00612019-06-24_00622019-06-24_00632019-06-24_0064

Love this!! Moe’s groomsmen came up with this idea & I’m so happy they did!

2019-06-24_00652019-06-24_00662019-06-24_0067

I think I will forever swoon over Moe & Olivia’s bride & groom portraits.

Why don’t I photograph on the riverwalk more often??? I love it.

2019-06-24_0083

I may have done a really loud “woo hooo!!!” to get the tourists to cheer along with me!

2019-06-24_00842019-06-24_0085

HEB Blooms always does an amazing job!

Now let’s move on to their gorgeous reception.

It was my first time photographing at Rio Plaza & I can’t wait to go back!!!

2019-06-24_01032019-06-24_00922019-06-24_00932019-06-24_0094

I loved all of the natural window light.

I also loved that it was right in the middle of downtown. Really easy access to the riverwalk & restaurants.

First dance after dinner was so sweet.

Daddy daughter first dance was emotional & heartwarming.

Moe & his mama danced together

2019-06-24_01202019-06-24_0121

& then dad decided to join in! Then Moe’s little brother joined in! It was so cute!!

Rio Plaza has the prettiest outdoor area. I absolutely loved the city view & the stringed lights gave it that romantic touch. I knew we had to go out there for their bride & groom night time portraits.
