After the ceremony, a mariachi band played during cocktail hour. Vibrant oranges and reds were the color scheme, from the flowers to the linens to the bridesmaids dresses to the signature cocktails. During the cocktail hour, we did a whole range of portraits: First, a big group portrait at the ceremony site of everyone in attendance. Then back at the main ranch, we did funny little vignettes using the Airstream trailers.
As darkness fell, everyone moved indoors for dinner and toasts. The cake had cute custom toppers painted to look like Karen and Andrew. There was also homemade ice cream. Everyone used their sugar rush to dance, to an amazing DJ from San Antonio, also very old school, spinning vinyl all night long.
