We’ve been taking lots of wedding photos at Hotel Emma lately, and it has quickly become one of our favorite spots for San Antonio weddings. Lauron and Colin’s wedding wasn’t at Hotel Emma itself, but Lauron got ready there which meant lots of bee-yoo-tee-ful wedding photos inside and outside of Hotel Emma… which is the next best thing. :)  These two actually tied the knot at Madison Square Presbyterian Church and their wedding reception was held at the oh-so-grand Sunset Station in downtown San Antonio (lurrrrve us some Sunset Station wedding receptions!) Three gorgeous venues, all day long. Triple win. :) Here are our favorites from Lauron and Colin’s wedding day, starting off at Hotel Emma. Enjoy!

Lauron and Colin wanted to get to their reception as soon as possible after they tied the knot, so they decided to see each other before their ceremony. This way, we were able to take plenty of bride/groom and wedding party photos AND they didn’t miss out on their cocktail hour.

Zach + Catherine’s wedding ceremony was held at the San Fernando Cathedral in downtown San Antonio, Texas. Their wedding reception was held at Pearl Stable, one of our favorite reception venues. :) This was the last wedding of our busy spring season (summers are off-wedding-season here in Texas), and we went out with a bang! Here are a few of our favorite images from their big day. Enjoy! :-)

PS – Special thanks to Diana Boucher and her team for coordinating yet another uh-mazing wedding. You ladies are THE BEST!!

You guys… this wedding! Every single detail was perrrrfection (you’ll see). Ashley + Brian’s wedding ceremony and wedding reception were held at The Hotel Emma in San Antonio’s Pearl Brewery. And when we say The Hotel Emma, we mean THE Hotel Emma. There is no other venue like it, and we loved every minute of shooting there. Here are our favorites from Ashley + Brian’s wedding day. Enjoy! :)
