The couple wanted their wedding to be as meaningful as possible, so they had friends provide many of the wedding services and kept the event to just 30 guests.
Brilliance by the Bay | Lauren and Cuatro’s Wedding
On Horseshoe Bay, during a picturesque night, Lauren and Cuatro and all of their gathered families, friends and loved ones, toasted the beginning of an incredible journey. Full of love and joy for the happy couple, the revelers dipped their toes in the magic of the moment, as Lauren and Cuatro made the bond they’d (almost) always suspected was present into a brilliant reality.
It was a casual start, with Lauren and Cuatro traveling in the same circles, noticing one another no more than in passing. Despite running into one another at any number of these outings that were unremarkable or worthy of superlative title, a spark had yet to light between the two. But their fates had a much more significant plan, and a trip out of town gave Lauren and Cuatro the opportunity to make much more out of their casual notice of one another. Pushed into closer proximity by mutual friends over an “epic” weekend at the friend’s ranch, a series of minor mishaps and the natural chaos that comes with a group of friends heading to enjoy some time away lit an interest that bloomed into a profound and appropriately epic love.
So, it stands to reason that the wedding they held, complete with family and friends – particularly some of those friends responsible for creating the opportunity for their incredible union –was nothing less than “epic,” itself. Held at St. Johns Episcopal Church, with a reception that followed at the scenic Horseshoe Bay Yacht Club, the occasion had all of the hallmarks of an epic event. Limousine transport for both parties included a toast to both the bride and the groom. The church, with its warm wood accents and elegant stonework, was a showcase for the illuminating presence of the breathtaking bride, clad in the most detailed lace. Of course, the groom, though outdone by his bride-to-be’s stunning gown, was no slouch in an impeccably detailed suit, with feather bow tie and spur button togs [he certainly looked dapper enough to garner an impromptu kiss from a member of the wedding party that wasn't Lauren].
To continue their epic adventure, the reception took over the Horseshoe Bay Yacht Club, complete with its waterfalls, palm trees and majestic waterfront seating. Lights, strewn to mimic stars, and the dock, arranged for seating and viewing of the wedding party from the waterside, all drew attention to well apportioned table settings and some truly epic accoutrements – such as a “cake” made of cheeses. With every epic moment, Brio Photography was on hand to capture it. All in all, it was an epic experience, while still but the start of Lauren and Cuatro’s adventure together.
