Brenna + Cliff are the SWEETEST. COUPLE. EVER. Like, ever ever. Maybe I like them so much because they share my obsession with reality TV (ha!) or maaaaybe it’s just because I’m a sucker for a great love story… and theirs is pretty great. They met in high school, went their separate ways after graduation, and reunited TEN whole years later.
Their wedding day was full of personal details – like Brenna’s engagement ring (Cliff’s mom’s original diamond from over 30 years ago. Ahhh!) Her second ring (yep, she had TWO!) was her “something old” and “something borrowed.” It’s made with Brenna’s Grandmother’s original engagement ring (over 70 years old) and diamonds from one of Brenna’s mom’s rings. I maaaay have gone a little overboard with the ring photos on this one, so keep an eye out for photos of both rings below. 😂💍
Brenna + Cliff’s wedding ceremony was held at are in San Antonio, and their wedding reception was held right across the street, at the historic St. Anthony Hotel (side note: the St. Anthony Hotel rooftop is definitely in my top 3 places to take wedding photos!) Downtown San Antonio weddings, oh how I love thee. Here are our favorites from Brenna + Cliff’s big day. Enjoy!
PS – Special thanks to the team at Kindle and Gather Wedding and Event Design. Every detail of Brenna + Cliff’s wedding was PERFECTION, thanks to you ladies!
Brenna + Cliff wanted to head straight to their reception after the ceremony (instead of spending lots of time taking photos!), so they decided to see each other beforehand. This way, we were able to take plenty of bride/groom and wedding party photos AND they didn’t miss one minute of their reception. Win/win! The photos above and below were taken in the first moments that they saw each other. We love first looks! For more info about doing a first look at your wedding, visit this link.
The St. Anthony Hotel rooftop = one of my top 3 places to take wedding photos!
Brenna!!! You. Are. GORGEOUS!!!!
Did I mention that the St. Anthony Hotel has a gorgeous ballroom for wedding receptions? Well, it does!
Brenna + Cliff, this was the BEST DAY EVER! Thank you for letting us celebrate with you!!
