A Summer Wedding at Hayes Hollow | Amanda & Gilberto
Amanda & Gilberto’s Wedding at Hayes Hollow | Hidden Falls, TX
These two are married!!! And I’m so grateful I got to be part of Amanda and Gilberto’s wedding day! 🙂It was so fun and romantic, and full of the prettiest details. I’m happy to be sharing all of the pretty with you guys on the blog!!
The wedding was held at the beautiful Hayes Hollow venue, located in Hidden Falls, Texas! With waterfalls, open sky, and a stunning ballroom, Hayes Hollow was the perfect choice for their beautiful wedding. Krista from A Signature Event brought the couple’s visions to life, designing a rustic-elegant event with greenery, blush, and mulberry accents. Flowers from Evember Floral finished the beautiful look!
Amanda told me, “We met at a local spot in San Marcos, Texas. “It was Halloween night 2014. I spotted him at the opposite corner of the bench I was sitting in. We locked eyes for a split second and then looked away. I don’t know what it was about Gilbert, but when I saw him everything sort of stopped and I knew I had to go talk to him! I started the conversation by asking him if he was “Hispanic” (lol). He smirked because it was probably the funniest thing to ask. Nonetheless, we chatted for a long while. I felt like sparks were flying, but I kept my cool. We gave each other a summary of our lives in about 30 minutes and realized that we had so much in common! We share a great passion for music, traveling and being outdoors. I was super nervous, so we exchanged numbers and then I gave him a fist pump and smiled. The next day, we went on a hike, but we showed up on opposite ends of Purgatory Creek Park. Since the sun was coming down, I told Gilbert the marker I was at and decided to wait for him. He did not realize he was at the other end of the park until he hiked about 3 miles to come meet me with his phone light on because it was getting dark. I thought that was so intense and felt so bad that I offered to have dinner with him. We had a nice dinner at a small local Mexican restaurant. I felt comfortable around his presence and noticed he could not stop smiling… We continued to see each other every day that week and after 10 days had passed we decided we wanted to be together in a relationship since we couldn’t stay away from each other. Since those days in 2014, we’ve traveled to numerous locations, gone on a lot of fun outdoor adventures with our pups Sarge and Chloe, and we even purchased our own home. I’m so glad we met each other and I have grown to love Gilbert much more in these past 3 1/2 years. I couldn’t picture myself with anyone else and I’m so grateful for this journey together”.
I love this love story and I’m so happy I was able to capture your first day as Husband and Wife!
Amanda told me that Gilberto proposed when they were on a trip to Denver, Colorado! “We were at the Garden of the Gods,” she said. “And we had reached the top of one of the rock formations. The view was incredible! He asked me to pose for a photo, and gave a random person his phone to photograph us. Little did that person know he was about to photograph our engagement! Gilberto told me he needed to get his sunglasses out of his case, and pulled out the ring that he had hidden then, He got on one knee and proposed! It was such a wonderful surprise!”
And Amanda and Gilberto, your wedding was just as amazing as your love story! Congratulations you two! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day!! I’m so happy for you and wish you all the best the world can give! 🙂
