San Fernando's Cathedral of San Antonio was the idea setting for Lori and Mike's wedding. The original church of San Fernando was built between 1738 and 1750. The walls of that church today form the sanctuary of the cathedral, which gives rise to its claim as the oldest cathedral in the State of Texas. The church is just amazing.
Lori and Mike have become very close friends over the past years and it was an honor to be a part of their perfect day. They made it clear from the beginning that they didn't plan to have an ordinary wedding. I'd say they made it as about as unique as any wedding we have attended. Mike was dress in his family's tartan kilt and Lori is a cathedral length gown. The entire day celebrated their heritage and love for one another. From the selection of the attire, the bagpipe precession, the illuminated ring safe, Lori's gorgeous dress, Mike's kilt, and their exit in smoke and flames, there was little that was the same as the rest. This was truly a special day and one we will remember forever.
After getting ready, and seeing how beautiful Lori's dress and the church were, we had to squeeze in a short bridal session. These are just some of the images that we caught.
Mike is a proud Scotsman. True to his heritage he wore his family's tartan kilt.
The First Look
The reception was at the historical Spanish Governor's Palace about a block away. Mike showed up early with a crew of family and friends to set up for the reception. A man of many talents. Everything turned out beautiful.
