Michael Steed and Shelby Ames’ Wedding Weekend Celebrations (part 1)

Wednesday, April 13th, 2011

I had the privilege of photographing three separate celebrations for the family and friends of Michael Steed and Shelby Ames the weekend of March 18th. It was a weekend full of emotion and beauty. I enjoyed getting to know these two families better.

Friday afternoon, Shelby’s bridesmaids spent time together over lunch at the San Antonio Country Club.

Shelby and her sister, Claire.

Sisters and daughters from the two families.

Saturday afternoon, Shelby’s grandmother opened her home for friends and family to enjoy a delicious lunch and conversation.

Here are the women who helped put it all together with Shelby and her mom, Sara.

One of the hostesses created these super fun and creative floral arrangements. I hope the photo does them justice.

John Cain of Cain’s Fine Catering prepared the food. I appreciated this beautiful spin on caprese salad.

Mother of bride. Mother of groom. 🙂

Mrs. Ames, Shelby’s grandmother, is an avid gardener. Her courtyard was about to burst into bloom. The hibiscus had an early start.

Mary, Sara’s sister and Shelby’s aunt, is beautiful. She doesn’t like the spot light, but I know that there are many people who will treasure this photo.

If you attended this event and would like to see all of the photos, please email me at
