We are almost speechless over the beauty inside Samara and Mark’s soft and romantic wedding. Samara and Mark, who met on their first day of college, had a 23-hour wedding day. The couple began their big day at 6 am with hair and makeup for their Indian ceremony in the morning. Samara and Mark hosted their two ceremonies and reception at Villa Antonia. With its old-world charm, Villa Antonia is nestled in the breathtaking landscape of the Texas Hill Country. The romantic gardens and stone terraces provided the perfect space for Samara and Mark to say, “I do.” Elisa Lopez Photography captured the couple’s Indian ceremony on the terrace enriched with culture and love. The newlyweds snuck off for a few pictures following this ceremony and then immediately began getting ready for their evening festivities.
Samara and Mark’s evening ceremony included an outfit change by the bride and groom. Samara slipped into a beautiful sleeved lace gown while her dashing groom changed into a black-tie suit. Their second ceremony took place on the outdoor deck with blooming white and rose florals accented by pampas grass—breathtaking floral arrangements. Samara changed into a fuller gown with floral detailing following the outdoor ceremony. A definite show-stopping dress! Surrounded by family and friends they hadn’t seen due to the pandemic, Samara and Mark enjoyed catching up with their guests while everyone enjoyed a dinner from Austin Catering. Lindsay at In Her Shoes made sure the entire day ran smoothly from start to finish, so it is no surprise that she was the couple’s most helpful wedding vendor. There are so many more charming and romantic images below. Keep scrolling to see more.
Samara and Mark’s Favorite Wedding Detail:
“We had an Indian ceremony in the morning and an American ceremony in the evening. It was a 23 hour wedding day for us. This allowed us plenty of time to catch up with all our friends and families who we haven’t seen in a while due to the pandemic.”
