Klara + Nathan • San Antonio, Texas

After meeting Klara and Nathan for their downtown San Antonio engagement session, I knew that their wedding would be something special. I  love the fresh perspective and creativity that comes from working in a new space. So I was excited to see the gorgeous architecture and nostalgia of the Scottish Rite Theatre.

What Klara said about planning their big day:
We are getting married in a 1920’s historic theater (the Scottish Rite downtown) and our theme is black and white with touches of gold and a little bit art deco bohemian vibe. We love to get dressed up. We had barely known each other for a month when Nathan asked me to be his date to his fraternity’s 50th alumni gala at the San Antonio country club and I had to wear this really fancy dress and they had an amazing live band and really that whole experience has really inspired the theme of our wedding (pretty sure that weekend was when we fell in love) and we are trying to recreate it as much as we can.

Hellooooo! That is best reason for a wedding theme that I have ever heard! Recreating the weekend that they fell in love and sharing that with their family and friends? What could be better?! (Nothing. The answer is nothing.)

Klara pours her heart into everything she does. I could tell from her detailed planning that their wedding would be filled with personal touches and lots of love. Let me tell you, it did not disappoint. Here are my favorite images from their Scottish Rite Theatre wedding. I hope you love them as much as I do.


PS – Klara loves black and white images, so I made sure this post was full of them! Little known fact: We deliver all of our images in color AND black/white! Because… why choose if you don’t have to?

Klara has an earring OBSESSION. She had a different pair for getting ready, the ceremony, and the reception. Annnd her ladies all had their earring game on point.  Black + white… or color? THAT is the question… Which do you like best? I couldn’t decide!

Klara and Nathan had the night sky, complete with a moon project on the ceiling of the theatre. It was gorgeous!
