ALLISON & MATT

WINTER WEDDING AT THE HOUSTONIAN

Allison & Matt share one of those funny stories the kind you see in the movies where the guy and the girl just keep missing one other. The audience knows they are destined to be together and once their paths finally cross, the sparks will fly and they'll live happily ever after. That is their love story, and it's one for the books.

ROMANTIC AFFAIR AT LOST MISSION

Samantha & Russell are such a sweet pair. They are both fun, thoughtful and filled with an obvious love for one another. We were fortunate to document their rehearsal dinner the evening prior to their wedding and witness first hand (through laughter and tears) how adored they are by their nearest and dearest.

ORGANIC URBAN WEDDING AT THE DUNLAVY

Stephanie & Jared share a beautiful story. Having been friends since childhood and reconnecting as adults there is a sweetness that exists between them. Each brings something unique to their partnership- his warmth and her sense of adventure. They are rich in love, family, and friends. On a beautiful evening in October, they wed in an urban glass house near the woods in downtown Houston for a traditional Jewish ceremony under a chuppah adorned with organic florals and Family Heirlooms. The celebration continued with a gorgeous reception under a ceiling of eclectic chandeliers where a live band kept guests dancing well into the night at The Dunlavy.

The Lodge At Bridal Veil Falls // The Newly-Webbs // Maddi and Dalton, the Locket

“Have a happy life and share your happiness with others. Happiness is difficult to give away and it keeps coming back to you”

These hallowed words were memorialized by Maddi’s late grandfather and revisited by her brother on the happiest day of her life. These words are ones that we all can live by each and everyday of our own lives.

With the quiet murmur of a waterfall and surrounded by their family and friends, Maddi and Dalton said “I do” on May 20th at the Lodge at Bridal Veil Falls. The venue, located in Spring Branch, is a natural retreat deep in Texas Hill Country. Will captivating waterfalls and spectacular views, Maddi and Dalton couldn’t have chosen a more perfect location for their wedding.

Her stunning dress was a work of art as it hung in a mirrored room and completely breathtaking once Maddi put it on. Her bridesmaids chanted her name and cheered when they finally saw her for the first time!

Their love of their two dogs was apparent as they both made an appearance - as a cake topper! Since they love being outdoors and spending time with their pups, it only made sense.

Maddi, Dalton, and their guests were tearing up the dance floor well into the evening.  The bride and groom left their sweet celebration by charging through a sea of sparklers!

The Proposal: Maddi told us:  "A typical weekday, we decided to have a date night. We took the dogs to a lake nearby and had a picnic. After munching a bit and drinking some wine, we got up to throw the ball for the dogs. He started getting all mushy, saying a bunch of sweet things. I immediately got awkward, feeling like I need to say a bunch of sweet things (I may have interrupted him a bit to get in a few niceties). But then he got down on one knee. He was disappointed (but not surprised) that I responded by putting my hands on my hips in an "are you joking?" manner instead of doing the typical hands cover the mouth in shock move. Disclaimer, he has definitely joked about proposing before! Anyhoo, I realized he was for real, so of course I said yes. We hug and kiss, then I heard screaming from behind some far away bushes. He enlisted Kayla Patterson and a couple other close friends to stake us out and take pictures of the whole thing. They came running over with the camera and some champagne. It was pretty awesome!"

Canyonwood Ridge Wedding /// No Words To Describe /// Carolina + Mark, the Locket

Perfection is all around us, but there are few (if any) things more perfect than a Hill Country sunset. The way the light changes creating a beautiful watercolored masterpiece as the sun sinks below the horizon is a truly picturesque moment only made better when sharing a frame with two stunning newlyweds. We were lucky enough to capture this moment (and many others!) at Carolina and Mark’s Hill Country wedding.

Set deep in Dripping Springs, Texas’ very own wedding capital, Canyonwood Ridge is a unique presence with its sprawling grounds and unequivocal scenic backdrops sure to make any filmmaker smile. With a couple like Carolina and Mark (who say that traveling is one of their favorite things to do together), we can see why they decided on their venue! They spent the morning prepping at Omni Barton Creek where Carolina was able to surprise Mark with a gift: a gorgeous new watch that he was able to wear for their big day.

Carolina looked stunning in her mermaid style gown that featured intricate detailing on the long sleeves and illusion-style back. Each detail of their day was carefully and thoughtfully planned, from the flowers at the ceremony to their beautifully choreographed first dance to Celine Dion’s “The Power of Love.” Mark even had his very own groom’s cake representing his love for the New England Patriots!

The party continued on into the night after rousing speeches from several loved ones including one from Mark’s brother, Matthew, who teased him for choosing to get married on the day after his birthday.

You both glow as brightly as a Texas sunset. We wish you all the best and more!
