Have you ever met someone you had so much in common with, it was uncanny? Introducing Mr. and Mrs. Daniel Chapa! Kaleigh and Daniel’s strong love and support started as friends and evolved into a love that will last a lifetime. Meeting while teaching at the same school, was only the beginning of their similarities and grew into something they could not forget. Their rustic and romantic day was filled with family and friends and it was a perfectly intimate and celebratory of their love.
The bride and bridesmaids had so much fun as they prepared for the evening in a charming little house set off from the barn where the festivities would take place. They were in wonderful hands with the always talented ladies from Lipsticks and Locks. The groom and groomsmen were ready to enjoy the party (and man did they like to party)! While everyone was busy preparing for the ceremony, the reception building was being transformed into a beautiful space for all the guests to enjoy, with thoughtful touches throughout the area and stunning floral pieces from HEB Blooms - Boerne.
Eagle Dancer Ranch was the perfect setting to house both their ceremony and reception. A short shuttle ride took guests down to a beautiful grassy spot, along the Guadalupe River on one side of the property. Under the shaded by trees and next to a beautiful rocky embankment an arbor prepared with floral was set for the nuptials. It was the most beautiful spot for the ceremony and exactly where the happy couple wanted, but with the chance of rain, we made sure to have a backup plan in place. Cue the umbrellas!
There was so much emotion brought up during the ceremony as these two beautiful people came together! Two of the cutest children brought smiles to everyone’s faces as the flower girl and ring bearer introduced the stunning bride. Friendship and family were quite evident in this group and Kaleigh and Daniel were wed by a close friend. A tree planting ceremony (with dirt from Daniel’s childhood home and Kaileigh’s childhood home) was done to symbolize unity. All of the beautiful accents included in the space just added to the overall feeling of love!
Once the ceremony was over, the guests were transported back up to the reception space, and the party was on! Cocktails and delicious food awaited the guests in the beautiful outdoor space surrounding the barn, along with beautiful guitar music by John Eustrom. Once they entered the reception, they were able to take in all of the stunning decor that Kaleigh designed herself! From the photos to the centerpieces, everything worked together to create her vision, down to the smallest detail - showing that sometimes it’s just the little pieces that truly bring your dream to life.
Riverside Catering provided the most delicious spread. They ensured all the guests were fed and happy. Kaleigh and Daniel wanted to provide their guest with cupcakes and desserts, and Saweet Cupcakes did not disappoint! The flavors of the day were – chocolate, vanilla, red velvet, and caramel pecan, and we’re not sure which was our favorite! Kaleigh and Daniel still wanted to have the traditional cake cutting so they also had a small tiered cake they could cut for their perfect intimate cake cutting!
Once the dancing started, there was no stopping! Toast Entertainment, kept the night going with music that was the perfect mix of the couple’s style, with traditional line-dancing, country, and current top 50 music. They were having so much fun, there were times when they decided to “lift” the groom up! When we say they know how to party, we mean it!
Monica Roberts Photography worked along our side to take some of the most romantic photos after the sun went down. She caught these images while the couple shared some alone time after the reception began. Aren’t they absolutely stunning?
For the most-stunning send-off, the new Mr. and Mrs. Chapa decided on bubbles. They filled the air as the two walked away. The end photo does not disappoint! Kaleigh and Daniel, we were honored to be part of your wonderful day and we wish you a lifetime of joy and happiness!
