Helena and Brandon met by chance one day at the rec center for UTSA students. It was truely love at first sight for this young couple, but grew into a strong bond that through faith and the support of their families would prepare them for this emotional wedding day at Hayes Hollow at Hidden Falls. The couple chose to honor their faith by having Brandon's pastor and uncle officiate the ceremony. They chose their best friends, including their beloved dogs Red and Blue to stand with them as they took their vows overlooking the picturesque waterfall at this modern, rustic Texas venue.
