Jason + Dixie's Vintage San Antonio Wedding
When I was shooting a wedding in San Antonio, there was a cop, named Jason who was working at the wedding. As we were wrapping up to go home he said, “What’s your contact information because I need a wedding photographer!” I replied, “Well I’m actually not from San Antonio, but I’d love to give you my information anyways! Are you getting married soon?” We went on to discuss his fiancé, Dixie, and their wedding that was happening the next month! I knew I had to do their wedding because we hit it off immediately. Jason is in a Scottish band and my husband used to be in one when he was younger so they bonded over that. Jason went on to tell us about Dixie, who is from the Philippines. I found out that they are throwing two wedding celebrations– a Texas Wedding and a Filipino Wedding. I was thinking “Pick me, pick me!” haha! And guess what, they picked me!
On the wedding day, we drove down by the San Antonio Riverwalk and I captured the bridesmaids and bride getting ready at a nearby house. Then, Dixie got into the vintage police car with her maid of honor and drove to the Riverwalk. Their wedding ceremony was held in the most charming wedding venue by the Riverwalk, the Little Church of La Villita. It was a beautiful service with close friends and family. After the ceremony, we took pictures with the vintage police car, as did a lot of tourists haha who wouldn’t?! It was so cool.
After the wedding ceremony we made our way back to New Braunfels which is about a 25 minute drive from downtown San Antonio. If you have never visited New Braunfels, I definitely suggest it. It is the cutest little town. I loved coziness of a quaint Texas town. The bride and groom met everyone at McAdoo's Seafood Company for their wedding dinner reception. This place was gorgeous inside and they had the best food. Holy cow I wish I could’ve eaten three plates! The happy couple mingled with guests, listened to some toasts, and finished off the night with a cake cutting. That wrapped up the planned festivities. After the dinner, we all went out to a piano bar called Moonshine & Ale. We danced and sang and maybe a drank a little too much, but it was so fun hanging out with everyone. This group of people are so kind and fun and really made Austin and I feel like we had been friends forever. That is the best part of my job. I cannot wait to hang out with this beautiful couple later this year in the Philippines! Stay tuned for our next adventure :)
