Getting Glammed Up In The Champagne Suite
Who doesn’t love getting pampered in a beautiful suite, surrounded by your best gal pals?! Samantha spent the morning of her wedding day with her bridesmaids, who wore adorable matching silk pajamas. A delicate crown was tied in Samantha’s hair, adding an elegant touch to her bridal look.
After months of planning, it can be surreal to finally slip on your wedding gown! Samantha wore a gorgeous long sleeve wedding dress. She completed her bridal look with a pair of champagne-colored pumps designed by Jimmy Choo.
Samantha was a stunning bride, that’s for sure! Casa De Flores Design Studio- Weddings and Events created a cascading, show-stopping, bouquet. From the blush and ivory roses to the fresh eucalyptus, Samantha’s bridal bouquet was nothing short of exquisite! If you’re in awe of these blooms, just wait until you see the ceremony and reception space!
Samantha’s bridesmaids dazzled in mauve-colored gowns in various styles. By allowing your bridesmaids to pick a gown cut they love, they’ll feel more confident and comfortable throughout the day. Plus, it adds a little dimension to photos and your girls are much more likely to reuse their gowns again if they each pick a style they love!
Relaxing In The Whiskey Lounge
The guys have it easy, right?! Mario hung out in the Whiskey Lounge before suiting up for the day ahead. The Whiskey Lounge at Madera Estates has a spacious area complete with comfortable furniture, a flat-screen, and even a foosball table! You can click here to view more photos of Madera Estates.
Off To Get Her Man
After hours of anticipation, Samantha is off to find her soon-to-be-hubby for their first look! As you can see, a light dusting of rain sprinkled on Samantha and Mario’s wedding day. You know what they say, right? Rain on your wedding day is good luck! Not to mention, overcast photos are awesome!
Finally Time For The First Look!
Samantha tapped on Mario’s shoulder to reveal her bridal look. Our groom beamed with a big smile as he got a glimpse of his beautiful bride for the first time. Madera Estates is settled on a large property with plenty of great locations for photo ops!
Once reunited, the pair strolled back to the venue. If these photos don’t tell you already – be sure to buy one of these clear umbrellas for your wedding day just in case! Not only does it protect your hair and makeup, but it’s also a charming addition to your wedding photos!
Samantha and Mario tuck away before guests arrive. The outdoor ceremony space had gorgeous floral arrangements and a warm glow from dozens of candles.
Welcoming Guests With A Cocktail
The Grand Fireplace at Madera Estates provides an exotic and one-of-a-kind atmosphere for couples to tie the knot! Your guests will feel as though they stepped inside a first-class resort! Regardless of your theme, Madera Estates can easily adapt to the vibe you’re going for. From boho to vintage, western, fiesta-themed, and more, Madera Estates can complement any look. Not to mention, we are an extremely versatile venue. For ceremonies, our couples can get married outside by the Grand Fireplace, in the wooded grounds of our property, or in our temperature-controlled Hacienda Ballroom. For receptions, couples can host their celebration indoors or outside in the courtyard!
In the ceremony space, a crimson-colored Persian rug lined the aisle, and string lights glowed from above. As guests arrived, they were greeted by live music provided by Divisi Strings.
Have you ever been to a wedding that served cocktails before the ceremony? If you haven’t, it’s a trend that you should consider for your own big day! Not only does a mini cocktail hour before the ceremony allow your guests more time to arrive before the formalities begin, but it also helps them unwind and relax for the evening ahead. Check out those adorable napkins with Samantha & Mario’s pup printed on them!
Romantic Outdoor Twilight Ceremony
With guests seated, the processional begins! Samantha looked lovely as she made her grand entrance down the aisle.
If you’re considering a twilight ceremony, we highly recommend them! Getting married outside as the sun sets is ultra-romantic and unique!
After the newlyweds exchanged vows and their first kiss as a married couple, guests were surprised with a firework show! ROAR Over Texas sure knows how to go out with a bang! Does it get any more magical than this?!
A Stunning Reception
Samantha & Mario’s wedding reception was absolutely breathtaking! The floral arrangements added an instant “wow” factor to the room. Champagne-colored tablecloths, gold beaded chargers, and Chiavari chairs complimented the space beautifully.
The Hacienda Ballroom at Madera Estates can comfortably accommodate up to 330 guests. This space is temperature-controlled and is often also used as a ceremony space too!
Samantha & Mario were welcomed into their reception with cheers from their friends and family! Cafe Natalie Catering created a decadent multi-course dinner.
Can you believe how incredible that sweetheart table was? Mario twirled his bride with pride during their first dance as husband and wife.
Now that the toasts and first dances are completed, our newlyweds get to cut into their beautiful gold-foiled cake. Cakes By Gina always does an amazing job creating gorgeous and delicious cakes.
At last, the dance floor is open! Bulbo Houston did a fantastic job keeping the crowd entertained all evening long.
A Wonderful Ending To A Magical Day
As the evening comes to a close, Samantha & Mario scurried off for a quiet moment alone. Aren’t these photos breathtaking?! Ama By Aisha always knocks it out of the park!
