The day began grey, cool, and very, very cheerful. Laura & Marcus brought a lot of the Baylor community together for their wedding--and everyone was so pleased to be celebrating the bride and groom that no one minded pouring rain on the wedding day. Although the Christian ceremony had been planned for outdoors, the crowd of family members and friends happily snuggled in tight in a gorgeous naturally-lit hall with a cathedral ceiling for the ceremony. The rain was soft as the ceremony hymns began, as often do most obstacles seem diminished when you're with dear ones and friends.
Marcus, the groom, is so visibly mesmerized with Laura during their first dance--you can easily see his awe at her beauty as he twirls her around the dance floor, her lace dress swishing. We truly enjoy moments like these.
Escondido, the location, means "hidden" in Spanish. Laura and Marcus both love being outdoors, and their family felt it was fitting that, since guests would have to travel from all over the Texas map, they chose a venue for the wedding that is so beautifully tucked away into the Texas Hill Country. Although traveling isn't always easy for an event, everyone agreed that the treasured celebration was worth it.
Marcus' brother, the officiant, pointed out that life can be like that--although we may have to work harder for something that seems hidden, the gem that you will find is worth it.
Laura's natural sense of style is evident in the watercolor signs, peonies in coral, blush, and citron, and naturally textured succulents, birch, and "lace" icing on the cake.
