After meeting months ago on what felt like a freezing cold day, we finally got to photograph Irene and Ricky as they got ready and got married! The day was really filled with emotions, but more than anything we could feel their excitement and happiness…..
I believe this is Irene getting her sister’s smile of approval ( :
I loved the look of awe on Irene’s Dad and Grandma’s faces as Irene came out of the bedroom….
Seeing such a loving father and sweet daughter had us tearing up!
After getting ready near The Woodlands Waterway, it was off to get married! Irene’s Dad did a great job of sneaking her in undetected! ( ;
And to the beaming Groom! Ricky was nothing but smiles all day long!!!!
When it came time for Ricky’s bride to walk down the isle and become his bride, well, his reaction was beyond genuine….
Those are looks of pure love!
Life goes by so fast and relationships are often taken for granted. Ricky, thank you for reminding us how special love truly is!
And then, Mr and Mrs!!!
Below is probably one of our most favorite photos of the day. You two are so perfect together ( :
Even though some of Irene’s family could not make it from Ecuador, they were able to witness the entire ceremony and the celebrations that followed thanks to modern technology!..
They even posed for a picture!!!! ( :
After a very emotional ceremony, everyone headed to Carlton Woods for a stunning reception!
While family and friends mingled, snacked, and listened to music, we snuck the wedding party outside during the perfect time of evening for some dreamy sunset photos! Totally worth braving the summer heat for!
From the glowing ladies onto the handsome men!
Everyone in Ricky’s family was sssoooo thoughtful! One of Ricky’s brother’s even requested a photo of the four Barth boys lined-up, just like their Grandmother use to take of them!
After some fun with the group we stole the newlyweds away for a few extra minutes of photos alone. I’ll say it again, dreamy!!!
Then we headed back indoors and joined in on the celebrations!
To be honest, I was totally in love with this cake table. I want those linens everywhere in our house!!!!
After drooling over the dessert table and meeting some wonderful people, the sunny dinner room was opened – talk about a wonderful surprise!
Had to share a photo of what’s behind the window……pretty sure this is what we call dinner with a view!
Once everyone was settled (and comfie) Ricky’s brother did a wonderful job of introducing the new married couple…
Mr and Mrs Barth!
And towards the end of dinner the new couple was given a very special surprise……
Not only were they serenaded by a Mariachi band, but a very talented friend with an incredible voice, too!!!
Then it was time for some cake cutting….
And first dances….
And end of the night dances!
Ricky and Irene, thank you both sssoooo much for allowing us to be a part of your life-changing day! We loved how genuine and honest you both were with your emotions and we adored how important you knew this day was. We hope you have a smooth move into your new home and into your new life together! Cheers (and hugs) to you both!!!
