Keya + Karl were married at Messina Hof, a local vineyard and winery here in Bryan on one of the rainiest days in 2015. But, they weren't phased one bit, and the team at Messina Hof made sure their day was absolutely beautiful even with the inclement weather. I was in love with all of Keya's bright colors, the Hindi influences, and Keya's handmade wedding gown. It was a stunner! We weren't able to do the grand exit with sparklers because of the rain, but I think their sparkler cake was an ingenious idea that made up for the exit. Their smiles are contagious! Enjoy this little look into their beautiful wedding day.
For Beth and Liam's engagement session, we decided to visit two of their favorite spots in Bryan, Messina Hof and Lake Bryan. Both places were where their first couple of dates took place, and Lake Bryan is a pretty special place for them, as it's where Liam proposed to Beth. On an island, in the middle of Lake Bryan on a beautiful Sunday morning, with a message in a bottle.. could it get any better than that? Nope, I don't think so! I had so much fun with these two during their engagement session, and I can't wait to photograph their wedding this coming March.
Ximena and Rudolfo are two incredibly sweet people, and I was so excited to be a small part of their very special wedding day. Ximena is from Venezuela and Rudolfo is from Brazil, so making the decision to have the wedding here in College Station with just a few close family and friends was pretty tough but I think everything turned out beautifully!
The weather was beautiful, and Messina Hof was the perfect place for these two to tie the knot. I absolutely loved having the opportunity to shoot the Cardoso's wedding. It was so sweet, simple, and intimate! The reception was held in a room upstairs at Messina Hof, and I'm was thankful for all of the gorgeous sunlight and the view that the room provided! They were surrounded by the people they loved the most and it was truly a night of celebration. I want to wish Ximena and Rudolfo many, many years of happiness and love! You both definitely deserve it.
Enjoy this peek into Ximena & Rudolfo's wedding day!
