A lyssa and Patrick’s wedding was definitely one for the ages! It was a warm, sunny Texas day and the perfect weather for an amazing wedding. We started the day off with Alyssa and her lively bridal party as they got ready at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Antonio. The girls were wearing gorgeous chiffon dresses that played well with their romantic wedding theme. Alyssa looked absolutely stunning in her gem-encrusted wedding gown from David’s Bridal and her makeup by Mistique Salon. The button back detail and mesh bust were the cherry on top of an already beautiful dress silhouette. There were so many precious moments that can’t be worded in a way to do them justice (but photos definitely help!) While my husband and I were shooting photos of the bridal party getting ready, we found out that Alyssa and Patrick had written letters for each other to read prior to them saying “I do”. What Alyssa didn’t know was that Patrick had planned a pint-sized surprise to make their wedding day even more memorable. After reading Patrick’s emotional letter, Alyssa was given an envelope and what was inside left everyone around her on the verge of happy tears. She opened the envelope to find a photo of their brand new baby puppy, Theodore! There was a ton of emotions from crying to laughter, but one thing was for sure: this would set the stage for one of the most epic weddings that we have had the pleasure to experience.

W hen we first arrived at the wedding chapel the most serendipitous thing happened that even surprised us. We were able to take their first look photographs in the EXACT place where Patrick and Alyssa first met! The couple shared a special prayer in the same desks where their high school romance first began. The tears would continue to fall after we did an emotional father-daughter first look that didn’t leave a single dry eye in the crowd.

T he wedding ceremony took place in the Antonian College Preparatory chapel and was an absolutely gorgeous backdrop for this intimate wedding. From the wedding march, to Patrick seeing Alyssa in her wedding dress for the first time, you could see the love that Patrick and Alyssa had for one another. The second he saw her, he couldn’t take his eyes off her. What made the ceremony even more meaningful was the fact that the wedding party had been a part of their journey to get to this amazing day since most of them graduated together. Their first kiss was a total celebration of their love and Alyssa took a quick moment to celebrate before they walked down the aisle as Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Ramirez for the first time.

T he wedding reception at the McNay Art Museum was absolutely breathtaking. The museum itself provided us with one of the most amazing backdrops for their formal photos. We were able to capture some of the most stunning photos that we have ever taken. From the wedding décor, lighting, to the magnificent wedding cake by Creation Cakes; no detail was left untouched. The uplighting on the walls and large floral arrangements (San Antonio Floral Designs) really set the ambiance for the venue. The live band (Finding Friday) made sure that the party kept going all the way to the very last song. From their first dance to the end of the evening there was one thing that was made perfectly clear: Patrick and Alyssa were meant for one another. We are proud to welcome Alyssa into our #BenitesBrides family! Anthony and I wish you all nothing but the best in your adventure together!
