When I first met Mary Claire I was taken back by her big smile, sweet personality and her beauty inside and out.  I could clearly see what Dylan saw in her! Mary Claire’s daughter Bella also came along and was pretty much with them their whole journey from consultation, to engagements, the bridal session and then their wedding day. Not only were they vowing to be with each other, but to unit their now beautiful family. There were so many beautiful feels when Dylan, Mary Claire and Bella were around with so much love and laughter. Their journey into matrimony was not just about them two.. It was always about them 3.

Mary Claire and Dylan met in 2010 as his dental hygienist at his dental appointment. Even though they were in two different places in their lives they just knew they were meant to be together and one day their worlds would collide when the time was right.  They became friends over a 3 – 4 year period while he played football for Rice University.

In 2016 they finally decided their fate to be together her living in Uvalde and him living in Refugio. They made their relationship work with back and forth trips until he he proposed to her. He is a genius mind you and made a contraption that flipped messages to her proposing in the most unique and romantic way on April 28, 2018.

Let me tell you, these two are forever going to be in my life! They are not just my clients but truly make us feel apart of their family. The world collided when these two met and I am so happy to be apart of it! This was my first evening wedding. We spent hours before ceremony capturing all the perfect moments that lead up to their I do’s. Their wedding started at 7 pm and started off with beautiful sounds from their string quartet followed by a reception with tears! There wedding was nothing less but timeless and classic and for someone who loves wearing black I was in awe of the simple color pallet they chose. Everything I own is black LOL.  Here’s a glimpse of their special day! Thank you for having us capture your beautiful moments!
