Karla and Nick met while she saw him playing the steel guitar at a show. Nick wanted to learn an instrument, and he decided to pick one of the harder and more expensive instruments to learn. They both love the outdoors and Nick decided to take Karla to the magical place that is Big Bend National Park. On a hike to the hot springs there, they decided to take a detour from the path and found the ridge where they wanted to get married. Fast forward to a year later, they are saying their vows on said ridge overlooking Mexico.

They both got ready at the Chisos Lodge at Big Bend National Park. Missing Nick while she was getting ready, Karla decided to play some El Campo, a band Nick is in. “I’m going to marry that steel guitarist!,” Karla exclaimed, as she put the finishing touches on her dress. The rest of the day worked like clockwork, watching two people get married at a place they loved so much. There is something so very special about west Texas.
