It’s always fun to return to the old stomping grounds. I grew up in Seguin, playing along the Guadalupe river in New Braunfels. It is always nice to come home to photography a Seguin wedding ceremony at First United Methodist Church and a New Braunfels wedding reception at The River Venue. We had a blast returning to our old home stomping grounds for Tracy and Miles’ wedding.
1st United Methodist
Anyone from Seguin has seen 1st United Methodist. It sits on Austin street just north of downtown Seguin and it’s a fixture in the community. The inside to 1st United Methodist is pretty spectacular as small churches go with a lot of stained glass, high ceilings and a large organ above the alter. The church made a great backdrop for Tracy and Miles’ big day.
Guadalupe River Wedding Portraits
Tracy and Miles’ reception was held at The River Venue along the Guadalupe river in New Braunfels. The venue, as you might guess from the name, is along the Guadalupe river with great west views. We stepped out during the reception for some quick sunset wedding portraits.
This July in Texas was pretty dry. We had a little bit of orange glow, but no clouds to give us a spectacular sunset. Instead we had some fun with a little smoke.
New Braunfels Wedding Reception
After the wedding ceremony in Seguin, everyone made the short drive to New Braunfels for the wedding reception at The River Venue along the Guadalupe. It’s a very warm and inviting space full of natural wood with a deck and lawn along the river.
The reception got a little wild as Tracy’s dad belted out Bennie and the Jets with his daughters singing backup. This wasn’t your normal karaoke rendition. It was more of a jaw dropping performance.
As you might expect from someone that puts on a great musical perfomance, Tracy’s dad was a little bit of a party animal. It’s always fun to watch people cut loose at a wedding reception.
