Secret Proposal – Casa De Palmas Renaissance Hotel – Ben Briones Studios

We recently had a client ask us to capture a secret proposal at asa De Palmas Renaissance Hotel in McAllen, Texas. A couples of days before the actual proposal we went out with him and his friend to check out the spot and go over and setup. The idea was awesome. He was to wine and dine his future wife, than bring her to the hotel for drinks but first leader her to a secret setup with classical musicians playing story above as he got on one knee and asked her to marry him.

Take note boys! Here is how it all went down!

Karen and Sergio Wedding | Mission Texas | Ben Briones Studios

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.

2 Days After Dad’s Heart Attack – Keirsten & Bobby Lopez Wedding – Ben Briones Studios

#TBT

photo-714884

Two days before I filmed this wedding I sat in the waiting room of a hospital with my family at the left of crying and praying for my dad to come out okay from his operation. It was Christmas morning 2014 and my dad had a heart attack and my mom had secretly rushed him to Doctor’s Hospital at Renaissance. In the mist of all the emotions I remained calm. I knew that whatever was going on was out of my control and I was okay with that. Thankfully my Dad came out of his stint operation successfully and lived to tell the story of his Christmas miracle.

Let that story show you that even in the chaos of life I took upon my responsibility and the promise I made to Keirsten and Bobby to document their wedding day. With the help of my best friend Imanol Miranda we took care of business. Thankfully Bobby, the groom, had gone through a similar situation and he shared empathy for my situation.

I almost didn’t do it. I was already looking for substitute photographers but my Dad, with the little strength he had, he told me to go and do it. My Mom too also assured me it would be okay.

Passion is what moves you forward. Passion is what keeps you strong. Passion is what builds reputation. Passion is what builds you up. Dad, you have always allowed me to do what I love and it’s because of you I can serve beautiful couples like Kirsten and Bobby.

Stacie & Jordan Wedding – Mission, Texas – Ben Briones Studios

This wedding was my last wedding of 2014 and my first of 2015. Stacie and Jordan married on the brink of the New Years Eve and we were right there to celebrate with them. Rain or shine our job is to document life changing events in your life, and I can promise you it is worth having these types of memories around to pass on for generations.

Stacie is now living in Alaska with her husband, so for you complaining about this January cold weather we are facing here in the Rio Grande Valley, think of my bride! This girl is such a sweet gentle person. Her parents are amazing as well! Everyone that we encountered at this wedding were just beautiful people. It was cold and rainy on this wedding day but that didn’t stop anything from coming together. In my opinion, everything went flawless.

It’s not everyday a bride marries the man of her life on New Years Eve, whom is a honorable serviceman, and then moves to Alaska. Stacie and Jordan, this was truly a movie-like love story and I am grateful to have been a part of it.
