Sneak Peak!

Hey loyal readers,
The photos I took on my iPhone will have to do
until we get the professional photos from Alamo Photographic.
If my iPhone can do this, imagine how unbelievably perfect their photos will be!

The Marquardt Ranch did all of her body flowers, centerpieces, and ceremony arbor.
Because Casey lives out of the state we did everything,
even her consultation, via phone and email.
She loved every piece of it!!

It was 45 degrees outside so she opted to have her ceremony indoors.
Something that her guests and bridal party dearly appreciated!

The bride and bridesmaids bouquets.

LOOK AT THAT SKY!!! We couldn't have timed the bell tower photos any better.
FYI for those planning weddings this time next year,
this photo session was between 5:30-6pm.

October Nature & Wild Flowers

October was a crazy busy month! We had a wet beginning to the month.
Nature's making up for the terrible drought we had been through.
But that didn't damper our excitement and good times with our weddings.

With the changing of the season comes a change in how our brides are decorating their weddings. Out with the bright bold colors of Spring/Summer and in with the classic colors of Fall. This October Bride choose to decorate with wheat, candles and a touch of burgundy colored napkins against ivory linens.

They had Mariachi's for the cocktail hour!

Wild flower theme wedding later in October used blues, oranges, greens, touch of lilac wax flowers. The bride was ecstatic at how well Shavaun was able to create exactly what she had envisioned. Left is one of the alter arrangement's and to the right is the flower girl's halo of flowers.

Shorty after my last post I received a call from Monica with Dos Chicas Weddings with news.
Ruby Muza from Ruby Muza Photography
came through with photos and Tomas Chavano with Infinity Video shared their video from our September 12th wedding!I am so glad to share professional photos and videos with you all as my point and shoot camera does not do this wonderful event justice! As always the video will be posted to the right for a while for extended viewing!

Be sure to check out the video around the 11 minute mark as you'll see all of The Marquardt Ranch staff, Dos Chicas' Staff and Casa Sol Catering staff working to get the "change over" done in a timely manner. I was stoked at how well everyone worked together to do this change over from the church type ceremony to a seated dinner for two hundred and fifty guests in 30 minutes!

Special tent brought in with tables, lounge furniture, lanterns and up lighting!

They had the dance floor on the side which was a nice touch to off set the tent/lounge area.

Lighting does incredible things for a venue, even if its beautiful to begin with =)
