This romantic and love-filled Dripping Springs backyard wedding is the wedding to beat! Yes, believe it or not, this is a family home, not a venue, with views to die for! It was also the most amazing celebration celebrating the love between two beautiful souls.
Meet the Couple
Kyra and Vincent met freshman year of high school on the very first day, in their very first class.
It took about a year and a couple of months before they started dating and were together until senior year.
That’s when these two took a break but quickly rekindled the relationship in their freshman year of college.
“Being a young couple, we went through our crazy times with our parents, and with what we were going to do with our lives. But reconnecting in college and helping each other through our dark spots, knowing we will always be there for one another no matter what is what makes us such a strong couple today.”
Although they have been together since high school, they “always find time to learn something new about each other.”
She Said “Yes!”
These two went through a lot to become engaged and did everything together, including picking out the ring.
And being the homebodies that they are, it was only perfect and appropriate that Vincent proposed in their living room. It is such a special story and moment that they get to share together.
Dripping Springs Backyard Wedding
After many years, Kyra and Vincent are ready to tie the knot at their Dripping Springs backyard wedding!
The bride got ready in the coolest airstream, located at the back of the property:
Not only was Kyra’s sister her matron of honor and best friend, but she was also the wedding planner (the beautiful lady pictured to the right of the bride)! The owner and lady behind Emerald Events, Haley helped to plan and execute this perfect wedding for her sister and did such an amazing job doing so. Plus, her daughter is just the cutest!!!
The ladies having a moment before the first look with Kyra.
Kyra and her sister couldn’t help but shed a happy tear. Meanwhile, the other ladies couldn’t get over how gorgeous the bride looked, and had huge smiles plastered on their faces.
Next up: the first look with the groomsmen …
And lastly, a first look with her daddy:
I am in love with their four-legged groomsmen:
The couple chose not to do a pre-ceremony first look, so Vincent was shocked when his beautiful bride came out of the airstream. So shocked, in awe, and in love, causing him to shed a tear (or two).
Seriously, could this ceremony site and lighting be any more perfect?!?!
A first kiss as husband and wife, and it’s official! They did it – they are MARRIED!!!
A celebratory shot is in order:
Because I want my couple and their family to be able to enjoy their day, I recommend putting together a list of no more than 15-20 posed shots for formal portraits. This is perfect for lighting (we don’t want dark or no-sun photos) and for photos of just the couple.
Poor Case …. not only was this furbaby not a fan of all the noise and people, but then then the flower girl was determined to love on him!
Can’t miss out on taking photos with their sweet baby boy:
The perk of having a Dripping Springs backyard wedding? The views, of course! Then add in Kyra and Vincent, it is absolutely amazing!
January weddings in Texas can be quite cold, which was definitely the case for this wedding. The ceremony was warm, but once the sun went down, we were definitely feeling the winter weather! Luckily, the couple came prepared! They had hand warmers for their guests, fire pits and electric heaters to stand next to, and warm food to fill everyone’s bellies with!
The new Mr. and Mrs. Roberts!
Kyra’s father gave the welcoming toast and blessing before dinner:
Leading to the couple’s first dance:
How beautiful is this cake and doughnut stand?! All baked by the bride’s talented aunt. And all of it tasted as good as it looked!
Let the partying commence! The guests danced to a variety of live music, from classic rock to pop and country, thanks to Us and Her Band. Fun fact: Kyra’s mother used to sing with this band!
In fact, as a special surprise to the couple and the guests, Kyra’s mother had an outfit change and stepped up on stage to sing with the band!
And had each of their children partake in a little live karoake!
The end is here and what better way than to send off the couple with a bit of drama!
With a wave from their truck, off the newlyweds go!
Congratulations to these high school sweethearts! Thank you so much for trusting me to capture your love and sweet memories 💕💕💕💕💕💕💕
