Well, there are probably waaaay too many photos in this blog post. I just can’t help myself because it was such a fun day at Carolyn & Juan’s SPRINGS Magnolia wedding and there were so many moments worth documenting. I feel lucky that I was referred to Carolyn by her aunt that is also a co-worker of mine. From the first time we spoke on the phone, I knew I was going to love working with her and Juan. Their love story of theirs that has been many, many years in the making. When we met up for her bridal portraits, I was floored by just how beautiful she is – if you haven’t seen those photos, check them out here.
Every thing she told me about how carefully she had planned out this day just made me more excited to capture all of the little things. This included family heirlooms included in her bouquet and her father singing at the ceremony. They even had wedding favors that were reminiscent of Juan’s home country of Colombia. Juan also gave Carolyn a custom made emerald necklace because of the significance of emeralds in the Colombian culture. It is a special experience to be surrounded in language and culture on a wedding day, Spanish and English flowing interchangeably. However, the love the was present between everyone involved transcended any need for language at all.
The SPRINGS Event Center in Magnolia, TX where their wedding took place is this beautiful forest-type scene. It has towering pines that give everything a whimsical and romantic feel. The ceremony was complete with many personal touches. Despite a few unexpected trains and cows/donkeys in the background, they tied the knot – and the reception was an absolute BLAST. I love dancing behind my camera while documenting receptions and this one definitely kept me going. Juan and Carolyn are such an incredible couple and I’m so thankful to have been able to add them to the Honey & Wildfire family. This is a wedding I will never forget – and as an added bonus, I even added a couple photos I managed to sneak into thanks to my second photographer down at the bottom!
