Military Wedding

Arch of Sabers

Tears with Dad
Getting The Garter

Sparkler Exit

Last November we photographed Kristin's brother Jerry's wedding to Alexis and were thrilled to be selected for Kristin & Cesar's rousing military wedding out at Angel Springs in Georgetown, Texas. Army, to be exact. Cesar and his groomsmen wore dress uniforms and he and Kristin exited the bi-lingual (English/Spanish) wedding ceremony by walking through the "arch of Sabers". That passage is meant to ensure the couple's safe transition into their new life together. The arch of swords is formed by an honor guard made up of members of the military who would normally wear a sword or saber when in dress uniform. Kristin's lovely v-neck white dress sported a cathedral train nearly 7 feet long with lace inlays. The catering by Dagar's was outstanding as usual and the mother of the bride helped Kristin to eat so that she would not get anything on her dress. Kristin was teary eyed dancing with her Dad after she and Cesar performed their 1st dance as Man and wife. Cesar and Kristin used a sword to cut their wedding cake which had a design of cherry blossom branches. Interestingly enough, both Cesar & Kristin have the same nickname; Monkey that was reflected in their fun groom's cake which depicted a bride & groom monkeys playing poker. Lots of beer flowed and the dance floor was full to the point that the reception ran over by a half hour as they were having so much fun. But sparklers were the order of the end of the day to see Cesar and Kristin off on their way to their new life together. Congratulations you two.
