If you’re not familiar with Ale and Noah’s story, I recommend you check out their UT engagement photos PRONTO as a little pre-game to all the emotional moments that happened during their intimate Chapel Dulcinea wedding!
For those of you who don’t remember, Noah and Ale met at a UT co-op, where we were both living at the time – their love story began over a cookie, making it only right that there were SO many cookies at their wedding. They got engaged last December during a Big Bend (AKA my favorite national park EVER.) Noah originally intended to ask Ale to marry him during a meteor shower but cloud cover made that impossible, he instead proposed while fossil hunting at sunset.
They picked Chapel Dulcinea because they both LOVE outdoors (did I mention they try to visits 3 national parks a year?!) They both wanted a ceremony location that fit their simple and easy going personalities, that was open and beautiful and reminded them of why they live in Texas: not for the tacos or weather, but for it’s natural beauty and vastness of it’s plains and rolling “hills.”
This was one of those wedding days where I was crying constantly. In every step of the day Ale and Noah made it their own and focused only on what mattered most. They kept all the extras to a minimum and celebrated with an intimate ceremony of only 20 guests, followed by a backyard fiesta with all their friends afterward. There were custom piñatas, chicken nuggets, a little bit of rain and more joy than could possibly fit in one room.
