Wendy and Michael are Married! – Horseshoe Bay & Hill Country Wedding Photographer Mariah Milan

I was very fortunate to have met Wendy and Michael a few weeks before their wedding. I always love getting to meet a bride and groom beforehand. I could tell that they were looking forward to their wedding day. It was very clear to me from the start that they are very important to each other, and that their families are very important to them as well.

Wendy described her wedding to me as “Hill Country Chic” and she did a wonderful job pulling together beautiful colors and elements to make this wedding absolutely beautiful. The Horseshoe Bay Yacht Club provided an exquisite backdrop to the days festivities.

I arrived to capture Wendy preparing for the ceremony. I was told that the beautiful pin (middle right) is in it’s 101’st year of being with a bride on her wedding day. Very special, indeed!

Wendy was then  whisked into hiding while the guests arrived and readied themselves for the wedding. Peter and I got to get into the reception area to capture the beautiful place settings and decor. The room was elegant and beautiful.

The ceremony was absolutely lovely. It was filled with beautiful readings, an amazing song, and loving gazes between the couple and all of their guests. After the ceremony, the sun was beginning it’s decent quickly and Peter and I got the couple all to ourselves for some portraits out on the docks.

Throughout the reception it was my goal to not only capture this loving couple, but also the many family and friends that traveled out to spend this joyous day with them. I loved this group – everyone was having such a wonderful time, was engaged in conversation and laughter, and were such a joy to be around. It was truly a wonderful experience to photograph this wedding – everyone was just so fabulous!
