Jessica and Danny’s Gorgeous, Fun Wedding at Agave Real in Katy, TX
What an amazing wedding! We have so loved working with Jessica and Danny. These two are so fun and easy, and their wedding was absolutely beautiful. They are so obviously and deeply in love with each other, and it’s so inspiring to be able to capture a special love like theirs. It’s clear that they really are lifelong best friends, and so perfect for each other!
Jessica and Danny worked so hard to make all of the details of their wedding day perfect — and it was. But not only that, it was a very special day, and an amazing party! From the beautiful ceremony at St. Bartholomew’s and gorgeous venue at Agave Real to a glowstick party on the dance floor and a heritage-themed dessert spread, this wedding was full of fun and personality!
We especially loved shooting the wedding at Agave Real. It’s such a beautiful backdrop for celebrations, and they are so well organized. If anything went wrong, I sure didn’t see it! We fell in love with shooting on the grounds, especially at night! It was the perfect place to capture some fun and romantic photos of Jessica and Danny.
Extra special bonus: Jessica is Bianca’s cousin, so we got to see our friends Bianca and Scott again, along with Bianca’s family, too! It’s always a treat to see a few familiar faces at weddings.
How they met:
We are a Match.com success story!
All started in July of 2011 – He at this point was located in Arizona, working in Minor League baseball for the Milwaukee Brewers, and I was working full time as an Account Manager in Houston. Both my friends & his roommate encouraged us to create profiles on Match to get our minds off the recent relationships we came out of. We both were skeptical, but then one night, we were both alone, he in his hotel room in Arizona & me at home in Houston. I thought, what the heck, let me just log on, and look around. Surely enough, he was thinking the same thing. We both started basic profiles, and me, just being silly & having fun started to wink at a few guys as I flipped through photos..lol. Only those who caught my eye of course. Neither of us at this point had paid for the service. He received my wink which intrigued him, a little while after, he subscribed and messaged me back. I too, then subscribed to read his message. We chatted briefly that night on Match…and both left our profiles half done. He stayed on my mind that night; the next few nights proceeded the same, we would log on and chat through Match. After about a week or so, we began to email one another. IMs lead to emails, emails lead to phone calls, and finally at the end of baseball season he made the decision to come home to Houston and meet this girl he had been talking to for two months.
The most fun part about planning the wedding:
The most fun part about planning was being able to make the wedding very personal. This included small details and touches that we knew our guests would relate back to us. From the maracas, to glow sticks, to the dessert area which had desserts from both our roots (Argentina & Puerto Rico) and both our home state of New York!
Wedding inspiration and favorite details:
Our inspiration was classic romantic, but yet fun & comfortable at the same time. We wanted people to really have a good time and celebrate this special mark in our lives.
Favorite wedding moments:
My favorite moment from the wedding was seeing Danny’s face as I walked into the church. He had made a bet with me that he would not cry, and when I saw him, his eyes were red and watery. I loved it, that and our first dance as husband and wife.
Favorite wedding day songs:
Down the Aisle – When I say I do by Matthew West
First Dance – Bendita tu Luz by Mana
Dedication Song – All of Me by John Legend
Opening Song – Aguadile by Marc Anthony
Entrance Song – Vivir mi Vida by Marc Anthony
What they’re looking forward to:
Creating new memories, starting a family, and growing stronger in faith as husband and wife.
Jessica and Danny’s take on the day:
I could not have imagined a more perfect day, everything went just as planned, and it was a beautiful, so beautiful it took my breath away. Thank you guys for capturing it, and letting us keep those memories forever!
Jessica and Danny, we are honored to have been a part of your wedding, and so glad we were able to capture this special day in your lives! We can’t wait to see what the future holds for you!
