Patty and Santiago tied the knot in a stunning outdoor ceremony at the Venetian Terrace in the heart of the Mandalay Canal. I love this area, it has a romantic vibe that offers gondola rides along with charming shops and restaurants.

This was a late afternoon ceremony. The weather could not have been more perfect for this special occasion. You never know what you’re gonna get in Texas. Patty and Santiago decided to wait to see each other for the first time during the ceremony. Good choice! When these two locked eyes they could not stop smiling. Patty’s speech to her father had everyone a little emotional. Definitely the sweetest father daughter moment I’ve seen in years.

The reception was! Santiago and Patty kept the party going all night. It started off with an anniversary dance, then had the traditional bouquet and garter toss and ended with a dance off between wedding guests.

I’m so happy that I had the opportunity to photograph Patty and Santiago’s big day. They’re the sweetest couple and it was a pleasure working with them!
