Once in a while I get to meet couples that just stand out, I love all of my couples, but there are the ones that take you by the hand at the end of the night and sincerely are so grateful and tell you “you are now family, not a friend, family!” This was Mario and Elaine, from the moment I met them I was just in awe of the genuine kindness, the authentic love and the non stop smiles these two have for each other. God made these two for one another, and if ever in doubt in a love so raw, so unique and inspiring these two are the ones that will totally put doubt to rest. Their wedding was filled with laughter, tears of pure sweetness and a really good time dancing and shaking what “your momma gave you” on the dance floor.

 

Mario & Elaine, y’all….

This, this is everything. Elaine, you have a heart made of gold! I am in tears remembering this moment. Before taking the first dance with her dad, she dedicated a first dance for her sister and dad, she didn’t get to have one of her own and well Elaine really wanted her to have that moment…guys seriously, the thought and love that flows from this beautiful couple..it can’t be touched!Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0226Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0227Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0228Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0229Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0230Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0231Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0232Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0233Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0234Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0235Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0236Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0237Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0238Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0239Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0240Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0242Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0243Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0244Marissa_Simon_CorpusChristi_Photographer_0245
