One can find inspiration in many different ways - the melody heard on the radio, the art on the side of a coffeeshop, or in Kellie and Harry’s beautiful love story. Having met at a summer camp just after high school, Kellie and Harry have been sharing one another’s life for 7 years. Kellie is energetic, happy, and she has "moves-that-kill” on the dance floor. When we asked Harry what drew him to her, he mentioned that not only is she the most fun person to be with, but he admires her work ethic and how she cares for others through her job as an ER trauma nurse. Kellie told us that Harry is positive, loving, and enthusiastic—especially about golf and Texas A&M football! Spending the day filming their wedding at the stunning Church of St. John the Divine and Bayou Club, it was evident that this love story would be one to remember.
They started their day off with a heartfelt letter exchange that brought smiles to both of their faces. Such a thoughtful way to begin the most important day of their lives! Kellie also shared a sweet “first look” moment with her dad in front of the church’s angular floral front doors. The ceremony venue was chosen because it is Harry’s childhood church home where his family remains closely connected. Kellie’s bridesmaids wore dresses in a beautiful royal blue (with the smart addition of pockets!), and Harry’s groomsmen wore embroidered southwestern style suspenders hidden under their formal tuxedo jackets.
The stunning reception at the Houston Bayou Club, draped in blues and blush golds, was a lively and raucous occasion: rife with crazy dance moves from the wedding party and even Kellie herself! Since they are avid A&M fans (as well as alumni) the night wouldn’t have been complete without a rendition of the Aggie War Song performed by guests and members of Kellie’s sorority — Chi-O.
The fun of the party seemed to just fly by, with late night snacks and fun sunglasses and beaded headbands for everyone on the dance floor. As the last song from Professor D soared through the air, guests celebrated with confetti sticks that showered the dance floor in a beautiful shower of color. As guests made their way outside for the send-off, they were handed game-day towels. The couple left the Bayou Club through a tunnel of waving Aggie towels and a golf cart decorated in beautiful script signage.
The Proposal Harry proposed to Kellie around 1am on December 18th, 2014. Harry wanted to surprise Kellie, so he showed up to the ER in a tuxedo and popped the question in the SHOCK TRAUMA ROOM! He even brought their dog, Shiner, to the Hospital (wearing a bowtie, of course!) to be a part of the proposal. After all the excitement, Kellie still had to go back to work for the remaining two hours of her shift, but was on cloud 9 and 100% surprised! She thought that it was absolutely perfect in every way!
Kellie and Harry, We cannot express to you how honored we feel to have been able to share your special day. The visible love between you, as well as the love your family and friends have for y'all is truly astounding and inspiring. We hope that your marriage is all that you dream it will be and that you continue dancing and laughing your way through life.
Oh, and Gig ‘Em Aggies!
all our best,
The Mason Jar Team
