Home Real Weddings Blue Weddings Anthony + Jessica


We have some stunning vintage love coming at you today from the great state of Texas. Jessica and Anthony had a traditional church ceremony followed by a reception at a local historical venue that just takes your breath away. Oh, and the photos by the train? I die. Everyone needs a train at their wedding. The dessert table, florals, and all the decor were created by the couple and their wedding party, as well as the photo booth and invitations – DIY from start to finish!

We’re also lucky enough to have a Super 8 film (squeeeee!) from Nostalgia Film who captured the entire day on film for us to showcase. Enjoy!

Jess & Anthony

Jess and Anthony got married in the Catholic Church in San Antonio on a beautiful fall day on October 15, 2011. They shot photos after the wedding in downtown San Antonio at St. Paul Square, then had the reception at The Convent. The day was full of lots of love and lots of DIY projects.

When they contacted us, they said, "I'm a local photographer and he's an aspiring screenwriter and film maker. We're young, in love…" and we just knew we had to shoot their wedding! We're so glad we got to be a part of their day.

I'm Whitney, your friendly neighborhood DIY Bride content contributor. I live in the Pacific Northwest (land of great beer, even better coffee, VooDoo Doughnuts, and lots o’ rain) with my hubby and our two dogs. A native Oregonian, I'm into hiking, trips to the beach, wine tasting, and farmers markets. My favorite activity has to be curling up in a chair with a good book and James Taylor on the stereo, after a day of madly crafting, baking, and writing. Along with working with DIY Bride, I also plan weddings and events in the Northwest.
