Bastrop Christian Church + Colovista Mansion Wedding

July 11, 2022

Can I just take a second to share with you the images of this Saturday’s wedding? Gina and Matt are amazing and their love story is even better. Keep reading to see their love story and their beautiful wedding day.

Starting off strong, the Bastrop Christian Church has been on my wedding shoot list for quite a while. You may not know but I actually live in Bastrop and I love to shoot local weddings. The ceremony was beautiful! Check out the architecture of the Church! How cute is the guest book? 🤩

Gina had her daughter help with her wedding dress. I love these little moments where you see love! 🥰

Isn’t Gina a gorgeous bride? I think so! She’s so beautiful!!!

I caught her walking towards the church!

I have a soft spot for classic black and white, beautiful, clean and timeless.

Gina’s FIL gifted her sixpence and a beautiful letter. 😍 I got all the feels when he asked her to read it right then and there.

Here comes the bride! Look at the beautiful architecture of the church!

Gina’s something blue is this stunner of a ring!

Their wedding reception was held at the ColoVista Mansion in Bastrop TX, my favorite venue!

Their story is best described in their own words. 🥰

“We met in high school. Matt used to help Gina with her Algebra homework. He would tutor Gina. Matt would not ask Gina out because Gina was one of his sisters’ friends. After Gina’s divorce Gina and Matt met in Houston to catch up. They sat and talked for 3 hours. The valet had to bring the keys to our table and ask who’s keys they were. We were the last 2 people in the restaurant. He proposed at Gina’s favorite restaurant in Galveston. With his mom’s ring. “

Matt and Gina were High School sweethearts! Matt wrote many letters for Gina, and they had them on display at their wedding reception. I loved using one to photograph their beautiful wedding rings!

Well, I am a sucker for ring shots. Can you blame me? I had to include both! I couldn’t decide which one I liked better. Which one is your favorite?

Matt’s sister surprised them with wands and confetti for their getaway! How beautiful is this!!!! Thank you for your amazing ideas! 🤩

I hope you enjoyed this teaser of their wedding day. I will create another post with my favorites out of their full wedding gallery. To check out other galleries click here:
