Carly + Jacob // Texas Wedding Film

“Once upon a time there was a boy who loved a girl, and her laughter was a question he wanted to spend his whole life answering.” ― Nicole Krauss, The History of Love

By the time these words were spoken during Carly and Jacob's hilltop ceremony, I had already witnessed enough evidence to determine the accuracy of such a quote when referencing the love they share. Jacob pursues Carly with such passion, respect and fondness, and Carly chases right back. Observing their bubbling excitement as they waited for the big moment was as authentic as it gets.

Despite being told of the tremendous preparations for this rather momentous day, I was still amazed at the army of people working up a sweat modifying the expansive Texas property for the upcoming wedding festivities. Friends and family, lighting crews and even the bridal party all got their hands dirty to make everything perfect. When colossal, ominous clouds full of rain threatened to crash the party, a backup plan was initiated until it was unanimously decided that, rain or shine, these two were getting hitched on that hilltop . . . And that's exactly what they did when the clouds broke apart and the sun's warmth fell upon us.

Back at the bottom of the hill, the reception was nothing short of marvelous. Exquisite food, kickin' live music, sky lanterns, cotton candy and one heckuva fireworks display all wrapped up with a trail of sparklers to send the duo on their way. At the heart of it all, however, was the overwhelmingly obvious love between Carly and Jacob, and that, dear readers, is worth celebratin'.

April + Aaron // San Antonio, Texas Wedding Film

After checking into our hotel, (conveniently nestled within downtown San Antonio), the first thing I wanted to explore was the fabled River Walk. The network of walkways along the San Antonio River winds and loops under bridges, serving as a pedestrian escape from the hustling city above. Lined with bars, restaurants, shops and attractions, this sprawling and unique experience was the perfect backdrop to the equally fabulous wedding day that I was about to witness.

April and Aaron are the type of people that seem to just click with anyone they interact with. In fact, upon my first in-person meeting with April on the evening before the big day, I was pulled into a hotel room crammed full of the soon-to-be bridal party and promptly introduced. Within moments, it felt like I had known these folks for much longer than sixty seconds.

The ceremony took place under a gorgeous canopy of trees at the Southwest School of Art, with the sounds of the river and a plethora of birds chirping away. The weather couldn't have been any nicer, but I have a feeling that, even in the worst conditions, April and Aaron would find a way to make those around them maintain their spirits.
