I have been looking forward to Will & Peri’s Wildflower Center wedding since she contacted me last fall! Peri was actually a bridesmaid in Bo & Adrian’s wedding I photographed last March, and I was so excited when she reached out to me over Instagram right after she got engaged asking what dates I had available for June 2018! Sweet brides reaching out as soon as they get engaged asking for MY availability to pick their wedding date is one of the BIGGEST AND BEST compliments I can receive as a wedding photographer. Seriously, I was so honored. 🙂
I remembered Peri distinctly because she was so genuine and kind and such a big help to me at Bo & Adrian’s wedding in San Antonio. Their wedding day took place between several different locations, so when I arrived at the reception venue and had a hard time parking, I gave Peri a call. She sent her then boyfriend (whom I had never met), Will my way, I hopped out of the car, grabbed my gear and handed my keys over to him – no questions asked! Later when he brought be my keys back, I responded with, “Oh, so you’re not bringing my car back to me later?!” Haha It’s so funny thinking back on that situation now!
Not only was looking forward to getting these two back in front of my camera after their engagement session, but I was also looking forward to working with such an AMAZING group of vendors they picked for their wedding day! Seriously: DREAM TEAM. Will & Peri had originally planned to have their ceremony outdoors on the Great Lawn, but a random Texas summer rainstorm popped up and lasted long enough that the ceremony and reception both had to be moved indoors at the last minute. Fortunately, it let up for the whole rest of the day and we still got to take ALL of the portraits outside! (Y’all I was praying HARD for that! Praise. The. Lord!) Here is a little peek at some of my favorites of their Wildflower Center wedding photos!
