A Bright Fall Wedding at Hotel Emma in Downtown San Antonio | San Antonio Wedding Photographer

I’ve photographed a lot of Fall weddings in my day, but Holly and Fernando’s wedding had the most unique Fall color palette I have ever seen! The bright orange really made her florals pop against natural surroundings at Hotel Emma.

We were also fortunate enough to have THE BEST weather for their wedding! It wasn’t too hot or too cold, and the sun was so happy that day–as were we all!

Holly and Fernando are so precious together, and watching them show their mutual love and respect throughout their wedding day was something special. It’s evident that they adore each other!

This invitation suite from Paper Culture was so fun to style! The Vintage Bouquet knew I was photographing the wedding and sent a care package full of styling florals! If you’re a bride reading this, be sure to have your florist do this too–it makes all the difference!

Tulips are holly’s favorite flower. They’re typically out of season in the Fall, but Vintage Bouquet worked her magic ;)

This is a prime example of reality Vs Allison Jeffers magic. LOL. Just kidding, but really. This is the same exact location for both photos!

Holly’s “something blue” was her pedicure. Genius.

This color palette full of oranges, peaches, and burgundy was MADE for Hotel Emma. Even the carpet matches perfectly 👏🏻

I happened to glance out the window while I was photographing reception details and saw Fernando and his son hanging out by the fountain. It was the cutest thing!

They had a sunset ceremony, so it was a race against time for their portrait time! But we had just enough light for their beautiful couples portraits! A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0104A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0105A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0128A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0133A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0119A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0120A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0108A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0136A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0122A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0113A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0134A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0111A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0116A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0110A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0121A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0112A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0127A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0124A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0107A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0135A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0109A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0126A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0125A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0123A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0117A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0114A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0137A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0130A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0132A Fall Wedding at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio By Allison Jeffers Photography 0139

Their first dance was to “Sara Smile” by Hall and Oates. Fernando had their wedding party hold up letters that spelled “Hollly Smile.” If you’re saying “awww” right now, you’re not alone ;)
