The groom’s cuff links were customized to include Texas and Alaska for the couple. Lanterns and greenery hung from a suspended ladder to create a backdrop for this Texas winter wedding. The couple used plaid elements to decorate the venue. Farm tables had greenery runners for this Texas winter wedding.

From the photographer: I was contacted in November by a sweet kindergarten teacher in Alaska to photograph an elopement at a park. She informed me that she had just gotten engaged a few days prior. Her fiance planned to propose to her when she came to visit San Antonio in December but he had just received information that he would be getting orders to an unknown location in March. He told her that he was sorry to ruin the surprise but he had planned to propose to her when she came to visit him in December. He had planned to hire a photographer to capture the proposal, but what if he hired a photographer to capture them getting married instead? And so they decided to get married when she came to visit him in December. Since she only had a little over a month to plan, she didn’t have anything planned but they did want a photographer to capture the memory since none their friends or family could come on such short notice. So since my husband is retired from serving 22 years in the military and we love helping our fellow military families- I thought of the idea of gifting them the photography.
