Denise & Aaron Featured in Borrowed and Blue



Denise and Aaron's San Antonio wedding shot by RKZ Photography was a shabby chic, rustic dream.  As light streamed through the stained glass windows of the church, the pair exchanged their vow in front of their family and friends.  The missing walls of the chapel allowed nature to appear at the wedding in all of her glory with Gruene Estate's gorgeous grounds being showcased.  The reception was equally as lovely with the gorgeous floral arrangements from Flower Shack Blooms, homemade favors in burlap gift bags, chalkboard signs, and a homage to family members who had passed. Each special element came together perfectly to create Denise & Aaron's special day.  To see more images of their special day, go to Borrowed and Blue.


Congratulations Sandra and Francis!

What an incredible day for these two.  They were married at Gruene Estate last spring.  He is from Brooklyn and she is from San Antonio, so their wedding style and decor reflected that.  Thanks for letting be a part of your special day, It was captured in some amazing photos by Anthony Gauna Photogtaphy out of San Antonio.
