Sam♥Maria part III {wedding}

And finally to the wedding... Ü

Maria came in via boat from across the lake which was so unique and fun! Such a beautiful picture watching her coming into the dock with her proud, smiling Father at her side, the sun beaming on her and the breeze blowing her veil.

Thier "sand keepsake" was a little different than I had seen before and it was sooo neat. The minister read off all the items that their Mothers had each added to their individual sand containers. Each were little tokens or momentos from their childhood that had meaning and I thought it was a really special idea.

Some brought tears...

And some laughter...

then they combined all those memories together...

The new Mr and Mrs dancing their way down the aisle to "let's get this party started" - how appropriate!!

And what a dinner and party it was... "Texas" beef brisket to die for!! 

LOL...the cake cutting started out so beautiful and then... Sam started it ;)

But oh no worries... Maria got him back Ü

Their first dance...

Thanks much to Duke for asking me to second shoot this wedding!
And to Sam and Maria - your wedding was so very special and I hope you had an amazing honeymoon in the DR!!  Congrats and yes... the best IS yet to come!
