Sandra and Tina’s Texas Old Town wedding was exactly what they pictured for their best day ever: rustic, intimate, loving, and personal.
Remember Sandra and Tina’s love story shared in their engagement session post? If not, click here to refresh your memory!
In that post, you read about how they met but you didn’t get a chance to hear about the proposal:
Sandra came home after a long day of work. At the front door, she found roses. As she entered the home, she found roses and rose petals strewn all over the floor. Following the roses, she was led to the bedroom where Tina was kneeling on the ground, ring in hand.
After sharing a few loving words, Sandra said “yes!”
Twenty-five years of knowing each other, always having such a strong connection, and ready to share their lives together forever, they were finally engaged!
The time has finally come! The ladies got ready separately, Sandra in the bridal suite with all the ladies, and the ringbearer. Chaotic and sweet, the room was filled with nothing but love and excitement!
Sandra’s sister helped her get into her gorgeous Justin Alexander gown and shared a few moments, just the two of them, amidst the craziness.
Meanwhile, in the other suite, Tina was quick to be dressed and ready. She was so excited and nervous. Luckily, she had her daughter and best friend in the room with her, where they shared lots of jokes, laughter, and good times!
First looks are great for a few reasons. One being that it can help with the wedding timeline and making sure all family and couple photos can be taken during the best time of day.
But more importantly, it helps alleviate some of the nervousness of seeing each other for the first time in front of all of their family and friends. This was definitely the case for Tina and Sandra.
The two of them shared this special moment, just minutes before walking down the aisle. And to say that they took each other’s breaths away is an understatement …
They Do at Their Texas Old Town Wedding
It was a hot summer day. One of the hottest we’ve had in a while. The outdoor Redbud ceremony area was where they originally planned their ceremony. But, between the two ladies not wanting to be miserably sweaty, and in consideration of a few of their elderly guests, they chose to move it indoors.

Texas Old Town Wedding Reception
With the rustic setting of Redbud and royal blue, light grey, and ivory decor, Sandra and Tina’s wedding was picture-perfect.
They really embraced the Texas outdoor life, bringing nature and the welcoming, country feel to their reception.
Cheers to the Happy Couple
Let There Be Cake
Hinze’s BBQ catered the event, and they were absolutely delicious! They are located in Sealy, Texas and Sandra grew up eating their food. There was no question who they wanted to be a part of their wedding day! And they definitely didn’t disappoint!
A sweet personalized gift was handed to the newlyweds:
It’s the Little Moments
As the temperatures outside started to cool, it was time to let the couple share a few more intimate moments and capture more special photos of just them two.
On a wedding day, it’s easy to get wrapped up in the day, events, and guests. But it’s so important to remember that it’s about you and making sure you enjoy the little moments and some personal time together as well!
And now that it was no longer blistering hot, Sandra and Tina were comfortable and had such a good time being together outside.
I love how goofy they were together. Our entire session together was nothing but kisses (between the two of them!!), jokes, and laughter … a great variety of romantic and soulful and fun and flirty photos!
Congratulations, Sandra and Tina! And thank you so much for trusting me to capture your sweet love and best day ever!!! Cheers to all of your upcoming adventures through life together! ♥
