On March 24th I was honored to be a part of Mia and Eric's wedding in Colleyville, Tx. Their wedding took place at the beautiful Piazza in the village and it was everything I imagined it would be. I had always wanted to work at this venue and they made my dream come true.
Our day started at Mia's hotel room, where we captured her and her girls getting ready, and popping some champagne to celebrate the bride to be. Bridal Preps are so much fun to capture because we truly capture raw moments of the bride and her girls just enjoying each other company before they busy day starts.
Like I said their Venue was just so beautiful! We could you every inch of the venue to take pictures and capture all the small little detail that helped make their wedding day come together.
I've said it before and ill say it again. Details are everything! From shoes, jewelry, flowers, dress and pictures. All the way to gifts on the big day. We want to make sure we capture everything that happened on your so you can look back on it years down the road.
Mia Gifted Eric some cufflinks on their day, One of the cuffs had a picture of their fur baby and on the other one it said "I do too". Since he couldn't be apart of their day physically he wanted to let dad know that he was still apart of the wedding somehow and approved of their wedding day.
If you have been keeping up with my social media post you know how I feel about "First looks". I know its not traditional to have your groom see the bride before the ceremony but times are changing and a lot of people are now ok with doing the first look because your able to capture those emotions with just the two of you. Its also one of the only times that you and him might be alone together that day so its something special. Mia wanted to keep it trigonal but took my advice to do the first look with her dad, and I'm so glad she did because I was able to capture all the feels.
Mia also had a little surprise for her mom and dad.
I love every wedding I have ever been apart of and gotten to capture but I have to be honest. I think this has to be my far my favorite wedding so far. The staff at the Piazza were amazing, all the details were perfect, the whole day ran so smooth. The coordinator made sure everything and everyone was taken care of 100%. There is not one thing that didn't get done, when it needed to be done. It was like clock work. The staff even came through with drinks for the bridal party right after the ceremony. They were like awesome robots lol.
The vows were also so perfect and you could just feel all the love they had for each other and the love their guest had for them as well. I cried a little bit but when don't I? I'm so happy for them!
Sometimes at wedding I can feel that vibe when people just show up to party and have a good time and then there's that energy from the people that are actually there for you, because they truly love you, support you, and believe in your love. I got that vibe from every single one of their guest. Every one was there for them.
Enjoy a few more sneak peeks of their wonderful, magical wedding.
