Morgan and Jessica were a dream to work with and it was inevitable that these two were made to be together! Morgan and Jessica met when they were kids and these two even played little league baseball together along with her 2 brothers. Morgan and Jessica went to different high schools and only ran into each other at the local dancehall when they visited their hometown.. The only time they ever saw each other was when they would go out to dance.. Who would have ever thought that very thing called “dance” would be a big part of who they are today!
Jessica looked like a radiant royal princess and did it Kate Middleton style in her Elizabeth Lee Bridal gown. She held her composure and hid her nerves with such elegance for her forever day with her bride tribe and beautiful mother while they got dolled up on the second floor of the gorgeous venue The Reserve at Dancing Elk. (Did I mention I saw a camel there!?) I learned through our time together that Jessica and her mother Shelly have one of the strongest mother / daughter bonds I have ever seen. Every time Shelly would look at Jessica, she beamed with that proud mom glow!
Morgan had a smile from ear to ear and had such a humble confidence about him as if he had been preparing himself for this very moment all his life… He waited patiently with his best buds in the grooms room at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church while he slipped on his boots and threw on his tux jacket cool calm and collective before the minutes dropped down to the final few before the clock strikes 3..
I’ll let the photos speak for themselves next! I can’t wait to share their love story through my lens!

I met Tina years ago and was excited when she asked me to be apart of her beautiful daughters special day! Let me tell you, Tina has her stuff together and is truly an organized soul! Daizie is so lucky to have Tina & John as parents. Just the time I’ve spent with them you can see the love they have for their children and would go above and beyond to make their dreams come true. They even surprised her with New England Patriots tickets!
Our day started at Hilton hotel where the lovely Daizie got all beautified in her suite with 30 of her closets friends by her side. She wore a beautiful white gown from Glitter Houston with nails painted in every florescent color to go with her neon theme. Daizie and her friends were picked up by a huge party bus… no.. more like a huge charter bus that brought her to Our Lady of Sorrows for the ceremony.
After the ceremony we took family portraits and the kids took a few group shots before headed out on a venture of their own until dinner. When Denise and I arrived at the Dome is was we were in awe of all the colorful and beautiful decorations! I mean, this place was immaculate! The Dome filled up with 100’s of their closets friends and family with music played by San Antonio DJ Jammin J Javi. It was definitely a night to remember! Here’s a sneak peek of some of my favorite photos of your special day Daizie! Thank you for choosing Captured Moments by Christine!

Yay! Can’t believe this day was finally here! Kortni & Marcus were such a pleasure to work with and it seemed like forever before we finally got to celebrate their wedding day.. The got back just a few days ago from the Bahamas so I’m excited to share their wedding portraits! Kortni & Marcus met on a blind date and have been in-seperatable ever since! Marcus loves to play guitar and according to Kortni attempts to sing but no matter what, he’s perfect to her. Marcus is more outgoing where Kortni is more mellow and anything that is relaxing to her such as riding horses, going to spas and beaches where the water is blue is more up her ally. Together, they balance each other out and make the perfect couple.
When I arrived to start my day with them, the weather was almost perfect minus the 25 mile per hour winds.. Not good for hair but, we got through it. Here’s a sneak peek of our day with Kortni & Marcus!
