Samantha & Jared were married July 19th at The Harrison Ballroom in Keller, Texas! A beautiful indoor ceremony and reception celebrated together with family and friends! These two have been together since they were fifteen years old, on the first day they met Samantha told Jared was "You're going to be my husband"... well seven years later Samantha was finally able to call Jared her husband!
The day started at the Hilton- Southlake where the girls jammed to hits from the 2000's as they had their hair and makeup done! It's always so refreshing to walk into a bride's hotel room and be met with a smiling bride and bridesmaids!!! Samantha had robes made for all of her girls with their names embroidered and they were so gorgeous... I need to find out how to get one!! I soon met Harley, Samantha's sweet niece who helped me with the bridal details! She loved how beautiful her auntie's jewelry was and couldn't wait to have something like this at her own wedding! It melted my heart as she held in her tiny hands, the earrings that were her late great-grandmother's! I told her that one day her wedding day will be just as beautiful! So Harley's mom and family.... don't blink, it will be here sooner than you think! See below for a few images I took of her helping!
As soon as Samantha's mother buttoned her up into her gown, her jewelry and shoes were on, we snuck down the elevator to have the first look in private with the bride and groom! The nervous but excited anxiety in both of them before the moment was precious... they've know each other a quarter of their lives but still those butterflies seemed to over take them!! As Samantha walked closer to Jared she quietly whispered for him to turn around... I think before he could turn all the way around Jared was overcome with emotion of seeing his beautiful bride!!! The sweetest thing EVER!! Just look at them!!! After a few minutes, the couple chose to read each other their personal vows to one another... Let me just tell you, I was bawling right along with them. Samantha read a portion of hers to Jared in Spanish... I was bawling and I didn't even know what she was saying.... Such a sweet moment that I am glad they decided to do! A first look may seem so untraditional but really it allows for the bride and groom to have their moment together and alone... well kinda!
The ceremony was beautiful in a mood setting-chandelier lit ballroom as the vows were recited in both English and Spanish. Family and friends watched, prayed and celebrated as the two became one! As soon as the two kissed and were pronounced husband and wife, the party was started!! First dances in beautiful light and a surprise dance routine by Samantha and her dad had everyone laughing! I still cant believe some of the moves dad was making.... you go dad!!! After the dances were done Samantha's dad had a surprise for the couple...
Unable to travel to the US from Mexico for the wedding, Jared's family sent in videos congratulating the couple... I don't think there was a dry eye in the place. That was one of the most touching moments I have witnessed at a wedding! A thoughtful inclusion of loved ones who unable to be there... Way to go sir!!
It was such a great day for this joyful celebration, I honestly don't know how or why God finds me these wonderful couples... He always seems to put the BEST of the BEST couples on my calendar and Samantha and Jared are no exception. Thankful for the opportunity to serve them and capture their wedding day!
Congrats Mr and Mrs Delgado!
