Kendall and Tanner
San Miguel Inspired McNay Wedding
As you’ll quickly see, Kendall and Tanner’s wedding day was an absolute dream. With a 3 location day, a destination theme, and the most stunning floral design, it was beautiful and more importantly, so full of joy. Their San Miguel Inspired McNay Wedding was born from their love of San Miguel and Mexican culture, and a desire to bring their friends and family together. Even before the pandemic, they knew not everyone would be able to make a destination wedding fit into their schedule, so with the help of Volare Planning and Reily and Rose Floral, they brought the vibrant culture of San Miguel home.
Their San Miguel Inspired McNay wedding actually began at the historic St. Anthony Hotel in downtown San Antonio. Kendall spent the morning with her favorite women and lounged in custom button-up pajamas. Their chic makeup look, curated by Veil Artistry (formerly Knot and Veil) gave the girls an effortless-looking style.
One of my favorite parts of the day was when the couple opted to do a “First Touch” instead of a “First Look”. This is becoming increasingly common and I love that it lets couples settle their nerves, have time to talk, but still save the first look for the aisle. An emotional Catholic Mass ceremony followed by a modern cocktail hr in the McNay Art Gallery set the stage for an amazing reception.
Kendall and Tanner are Texas A&M grads and so obviously respected and loved by their community. The guests at their wedding were full of energy and showered the couple in love and good stories. The grand reception space at the McNay became a warm and inviting dinner party followed by a energetic dance floor. It wouldn’t have been complete without bridesmaids dancing in burger costumes in honor of the couple’s hashtag #sebergerinparadise!
Ending the night driving off in Tanner’s grandfathers’ car, this San Miguel Inspired McNay Wedding was one for the books.
Thank you, Kendall and Tanner, for letting me capture this incredible day. Cheers to forever!
