Kim and I were talking about how long we'd known each other. She was one of the first people I met when I moved to South Texas almost 10 years ago. We used to joke that she is my recently adopted daughter. To say that she has been through hell and back is an understatement. She has had a rough life, between poor choices and health problems.
Through it all, she always has a goofy smile that reminds me of Carol Burnett. I was overjoyed when she told me that she was getting married, and I was honored that she wanted me to photograph the ceremony.
I got to meet Mario a few weeks ago, and I was impressed. He's a good guy, and I could tell pretty quickly how much he adores Kim.
The ceremony was at a country pavilion in Blanco with beautiful views. When I arrived, Kim told me that she had to re-do her bouquet last night since her dog ate the first one.
Sometimes the most simple ceremonies can be the most beautiful. When Kim arrived in her dress, some people may have been surprised that she wore a black dress. If you know Kim... it fits her personality perfectly. And she wore it with style! The purple feather earrings and white veil were gorgeous!
