Carrie + Rod | La Cantera Resort and Spa Wedding

When I met Carrie and Rod at La Cantera Resort a few months ago I instantly felt a connection. They’re sweet, loving, and they wanted JOYFUL photos! They also wanted to keep things simple and elegant–nothing too over-the-top.

When their wedding day came I could hardly contain my excitement. La Cantera is one of the most beautiful venues in Central Texas, and the views alone are enough to make you want to stay a while. I knew with Brenda of Hill Country Planning that it was going to be simply beautiful, and IT WAS!

In Texas, you never really know what kind of weather you’re going to get, but it was absolutely PERFECT for them, and everything turned out so so beautifully.

Carrie and Rod did something a little different with their wedding party. They included those who meant the most to them, which happened to be their own children! Carrie was escorted down the aisle by her son and daughter, and it was one of the sweetest things I’ve witnessed.

Carrie and Rod, I am so honored you chose me to photograph your #bestdayever, and I wish you decades of love and happiness! A Classic Minimalist Blush and gold greenery wedding at La Cantera Resort and Spa in San Antonio Texas 0001 Carrie wore this beautiful and simple Andora Gown from BHLDN.
