Kelli & Jeff’s Wedding: St. Anthony Hotel, San Antonio TX

Houston wedding and portrait photographers, Michael and Lisa Carr, CPP, recently traveled to photograph Kelli & Jeff’s wedding photography in San Antonio, TX. The fun wedding weekend started on Friday, when we photographed their Rehearsal Dinner at Hotel Emma. You can read more about Kelli & Jeff’s Rehearsal Dinner here.

On the day of her wedding, Kelli and her bridesmaids spent their morning having their makeup and hair done at the hotel. We documented Kelli getting ready as well as Jeff getting ready at The St. Anthony Hotel. Their wedding ceremony was across the street at Travis Park United Methodist Church. After the ceremony, guests walked over to The St. Anthony Hotel to enjoy the reception. Kelli & Jeff’s reception was held on the first floor of the St. Anthony. Guests were able to go ballroom to ballroom and enjoy the band, décor, and even a lounge area. The lounge area décor complimented the hotel and the entire wedding décor. Florals for the wedding were by DeVinnie’s Paradise. The band was Blind Date Austin. They did a wonderful job with entertainment and the guests danced non-stop throughout the reception. Lisa and her team with Haute Weddings, San Antonio did a wonderful job coordinating the wedding.

Bridal Portraits at The St. Anthony Hotel, San Antonio, Texas

Houston portrait photographer, Michael Carr, CPP, recently captured Kelli’s San Antonio Bridal Portraits at The St. Anthony Hotel. Our team enjoyed working at the St. Anthony Hotel because there were several beautiful vignettes, both inside and outside, for us to capture classic portraits as well as contemporary portraits of the bride.

Michael incorporated a mixture of natural light and on location lighting equipment to create her Bridal Portraits at The St. Anthony Hotel and also across the street at Travis Park Methodist Church. He captured a collection of full length, three quarter and seated poses of the bride so she and her family would have a variety of options for their portraits. A week after the bridal portrait session, we met with Kelli and her mom here in the studio for their viewing and ordering appointment. We reviewed all the images with them and helped them select their favorite images for the press release, wall portraits, gift portraits as well as their Bridal Portrait albums. We also helped Kelli & her mom select custom framing for their Bridal Portraits. We were very excited this past weekend because we hand delivered Kelli’s stunning, framed portraits to her family and also photographed her wedding in San Antonio.
