To kick off the big day, Cné and her bridesmaids got pampered by the glam squad at Blushed Beauty Texas. The gals had a great time relaxing in our Champagne Bridal Suite.

The Whiskey Lounge At Madera Estates
Meanwhile, in the Whiskey Lounge, Marquel is all smiles as he puts on his wedding attire. On the morning of the wedding, the groom and his buddies chilled out on the leather sofas, watched sports on the big screen, and competed in a game of foosball!
Above the Whiskey Lounge, you’ll find a gorgeous covered structure. This outdoor lounge area is a perfect backdrop for photos! Marquel and his buddies had a great time posing for Ivan Garcia Studio.
The Champagne Bridal Suite At Madera Estates
At last, it’s time for our gorgeous bride to put her wedding dress on! Isn’t Cné absolutely stunning?! After putting on her silver heels and slipping on her garter, it was finally time for her to complete her bridal look!
Cné’s mom helped her put on her strapless lace wedding gown. The reveal to the bridesmaids was priceless! Look at those sweet reactions!
After reading a love letter from Marquel, Cné and her dad had a first look. It was a precious moment that left everyone in the room teary-eyed.
Time For The First Look!
A first look is a great opportunity for a couple to knock out the majority of their photos before the wedding ceremony. After all, you likely want to get to your reception as soon as possible! Not only does a first look allow you to take your time getting all the photos you want, but you’ll likely get a lot more photos as a result! As you can see, Cné and Marquel were absolutely smitten with one another. Just look at those grins!
I mean… pretty sure this couple has a shot at modeling – RIGHT?!
After an intimate moment with one another, the bridal party joined in on the fun!
Wedding Party Portraits
The bridesmaids looked stunning in light blue empire-waist gowns. We love earthy, organic, bouquets!
When you are searching for your wedding venue, make sure there are plenty of photo-opt opportunities. The grounds of Madera Estates include a lush forest, grass terrain, a teepee, tropical plants, and of course the grand fireplace! Having plenty of photo backgrounds at one location will add variety to your photos. Plus, not having to go from one location to another will save you a ton of money on transportation!
This is a pretty handsome looking group! The groomsmen’s attire complimented the rest of the bridal party beautifully. We love how the bride and groom both stand out from the crowd with their wedding day look.
An Outdoor Wedding Ceremony
In the blink of an eye, the ceremony has begun! Marquel shed a few tears as his beautiful bride glided towards him. The ceremony took place right as the sun was going down, which offered a soft glow and a romantic atmosphere.
Greenery and florals draped the mantle of the Grand Fireplace. The weather couldn’t have been more perfect on this gorgeous March day.
Surrounded by their closest family and friends, Cné and Marquel vowed to spend the rest of their lives together.
After the ring exchange and some “I do’s”, Cné & Marquel are officially pronounced husband and wife! Check out that grin on our groom’s face!
Our newlyweds and their guests enjoyed cocktail hour on the terrace before heading into their reception! For those of you who are unfamiliar, the main purpose of cocktail hour is to allow the bride and groom some time to take photos with their family! Not to mention, it’s a great opportunity for guests to mingle before a night of celebration!
At Madera Estates, there are no limits! When you host your wedding at Madera Estates, you have the option to open the bar as guests arrive. After all, who wouldn’t like to be greeted with a refreshing beverage?! After the ceremony, the cocktail hour usually consists of passed entrees. We can serve these chilled or warm to reflect the season.
Let’s Party! Time For The Reception!
Beautiful floral greenery was scattered throughout the reception area. The candlelight and the glow of the chandeliers set the tone for a beautiful evening!
Mr. & Mrs. danced into the reception room as their friends and family greeted them with cheers! After a spin around the dance floor, the couple thanked their guests for sharing the evening with them.
A delicious dinner was served by the team at Meals By Mel. The bride and groom had a great time making their rounds from table to table to chat with their guests.
Yippie! It’s cake time! And, of course, that also means champagne! The gorgeous buttercream cake was created by our friends at Sugary Cindy’s.
The bridal party toasted to the newlyweds before the dance floor opened up. Is there really anything better than hearing love-filled words from the people who mean the most to you?!
With full bellies, fuller hearts, and the open bar in full force, guests rushed to the dance floor to celebrate the night away.
All the guests had the time of their lives as the DJ kept the party poppin’! This crowd was a TON of fun!
As bittersweet as it is, the perfect day must come to an end – BUT the memories of this day will live on forever! Cné & Marquel dashed out of the reception hall and ended their wedding celebration with a sparkler send-off! We were so honored to be a part of their wedding day and we wish them a lifetime of love and happiness!
