This wedding was something special for me to witness because I saw Karen grow up. Karen is my best friends sister and because I consider my best friend family, she too is family. What I love is she hasn’t changed much too. Her humor is still awesome and she’s more beautiful than ever.
The bride and groom were already married but wanted to have a grand celebration with family and friends. They got ready at Karen’s mother’s home, where her parents helped them both prepare for the big day. We then took the couple to the beautiful Bryan House in Mission, Texas to take portraits of the couple before their ceremony and reception.
Their ceremony and reception took place at this beautiful elegant venue named Reyna’s Crown in Mission, Texas. I love how simple and intimate their ceremony because what really matters is the person next to you and her and Sergio were totally in the love zone. Right after followed a grand celebration. If you know the Cavazos family they know how to have fun and this wedding was extremely fun! Here are some sneak peeks from this wedding.

There’s this cute little wedding venue in Mission, Texas named The Loretto Bristo and it’s kind of a big deal. I have had the pleasure of photographing two weddings there and both have produced beautiful wedding photos and it’s all thanks to the ascetics of the location. I was also equipped with one of the best shooters in town, Steph Rios, who also took the couples engagement photos a few months before the wedding.
The Loretto Bristo has an airy vintage type of feel with a mixture of summer-time-fun! It’s well lit from the inside and pretty spacious for a small to mid-size event. The couples I photographed at this venue have both got married out back in their beautiful lush green courtyard.
Dominique and Gilbert couldn’t have chosen a better venue. The couple who is also good looking fit right in at the venue. What I loved most about this wedding was the amount of love in the air and how quaint it was. Desiree, the brides sister, recommended me to her and I am very thankful because Dominique was such a fun and sweet bride. The couple completely trusted my shooting partner and I to capture this love story and that we did. Enjoy.

I am super excited to finally share these images with you! This event was memorable because it was celebrated among friends; The Pedraza Family. Ray and his family have invited me into their family as a friend and has just made our business partnership that much more special.
Ray Pedraza is the assistant director of the Public Relations & Marketing office at South Texas College. If you ever call STC and hear that voice in the background that’s him.
One day at work Ray had mentioned that he was planning a Quinceañera for his daughter Briana. Well as you can see I was hired and really enjoyed photographing this milestone.
The ceremony took place at Holy Spirit Catholic Church in McAllen, Texas, which is the Pedraza’s family home church. Then the celebration continued at Balli’s Social Event Center.
Thank you Pedraza family for allowing me to be part of such a special moment for you and your daughter. Enjoy some of my favorite moments from this event.
