“Love is, in fact, an intensification of life, a completeness, a fullness, a wholeness of life.”
– Thomas Merton
Last year was a year filled with amazing couples and candid moments. One of those couples we photographed were Mario and Ryan. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing the both of them for a few years now. Their love is absolutely beautiful, and they couldn’t be more fitting for one another. Mario and I first met in high school through mutual friends, and kept in touch while he was studying at A&M and after when he moved back to Fort Worth. When he met Ryan, I could see just how happy he was with him! In March of last year the three of us met up and explored the Fort Worth Nature Preserve, which is a place they frequent often together. You can see more from their engagement session here. 🙂
Their wedding day had finally arrived, and the couple’s closest family and friends made their way to the Fort Worth Botanic Gardens to celebrate their love. Mario and Ryan exchanged vows, and unified their marriage with a sand ceremony. One of many sweet moments was when Ryan’s dad, and Mario’s sister performed “Morning has broken,” a song by Cat Stevens. The two love birds kissed and with the ceremony finished, friends and family made their way to the BRIT, ready to party through the night!
Mario and Ryan, I couldn’t be happier for the two of you. Congrats again!
