Jessica and Joaquin’s McNay Art Museum wedding was a beautiful Summer day in San Antonio, filled with love and joy! They started dating in high school, shared the same college as well as an equal love for football and have been inseparable ever since their journey together began. They took their vows surrounded by their family and friends in the San Fernando Cathedral in honor of their faith and celebrated afterwards at the museum, where they kept the color scheme focused on neutrals such as white, green and pops of gold. Joaquin looked incredibly dapper in his sleek black tuxedo and Jessica was absolutely captivating in her flowing gown with intricate floral designs on the bodice of the dress. Her bridesmaids wore beautiful satin gowns, champagne in color, while his grooms wore black tux. They had a live band creating such a energized atmosphere starting as soon as they exited the church to travel to the reception location where the cocktail hour was held in the courtyard where beautiful light poured in. The art museum itself was the most perfect canvas with its neutral stucco exterior and brightly colored artwork spread throughout the space. Their McNay Art Museum wedding was truly a charming and enchanting day!
