Jessica and Danny’s Gorgeous, Fun Wedding at Agave Real in Katy, TX

jessica and danny's wedding at agave real katy, tx

What an amazing wedding! We have so loved working with Jessica and Danny. These two are so fun and easy, and their wedding was absolutely beautiful. They are so obviously and deeply in love with each other, and it’s so inspiring to be able to capture a special love like theirs. It’s clear that they really are lifelong best friends, and so perfect for each other!

Jessica and Danny worked so hard to make all of the details of their wedding day perfect — and it was. But not only that, it was a very special day, and an amazing party! From the beautiful ceremony at St. Bartholomew’s and gorgeous venue at Agave Real to a glowstick party on the dance floor and a heritage-themed dessert spread, this wedding was full of fun and personality!

We especially loved shooting the wedding at Agave Real. It’s such a beautiful backdrop for celebrations, and they are so well organized. If anything went wrong, I sure didn’t see it! We fell in love with shooting on the grounds, especially at night! It was the perfect place to capture some fun and romantic photos of Jessica and Danny.

Extra special bonus: Jessica is Bianca’s cousin, so we got to see our friends¬†Bianca and Scott again, along with Bianca’s family, too! It’s always a treat to see a few familiar faces at weddings. :)

How they met:

We are a Match.com success story!
All started in July of 2011 – He at this point was located in Arizona, working in Minor League baseball for the Milwaukee Brewers, and I was working full time as an Account Manager in Houston. Both my friends & his roommate encouraged us to create profiles on Match to get our minds off the recent relationships we came out of. We both were skeptical, but then one night, we were both alone, he in his hotel room in Arizona & me at home in Houston. I thought, what the heck, let me just log on, and look around. Surely enough, he was thinking the same thing. We both started basic profiles, and me, just being silly & having fun started to wink at a few guys as I flipped through photos..lol. Only those who caught my eye of course. Neither of us at this point had paid for the service. He received my wink which intrigued him, a little while after, he subscribed and messaged me back. I too, then subscribed to read his message. We chatted briefly that night on Match…and both left our profiles half done. He stayed on my mind that night; the next few nights proceeded the same, we would log on and chat through Match. After about a week or so, we began to email one another. IMs lead to emails, emails lead to phone calls, and finally at the end of baseball season he made the decision to come home to Houston and meet this girl he had been talking to for two months.

The most fun part about planning the wedding:

The most fun part about planning was being able to make the wedding very personal. This included small details and touches that we knew our guests would relate back to us. From the maracas, to glow sticks, to the dessert area which had desserts from both our roots (Argentina & Puerto Rico) and both our home state of New York!

Wedding inspiration and favorite details:

Our inspiration was classic romantic, but yet fun & comfortable at the same time. We wanted people to really have a good time and celebrate this special mark in our lives.

Favorite wedding moments:

My favorite moment from the wedding was seeing Danny’s face as I walked into the church. He had made a bet with me that he would not cry, and when I saw him, his eyes were red and watery. I loved it, that and our first dance as husband and wife.

Favorite wedding day songs:

Down the Aisle – When I say I do by Matthew West
First Dance – Bendita tu Luz by Mana
Dedication Song – All of Me by John Legend
Opening Song – Aguadile by Marc Anthony
Entrance Song – Vivir mi Vida by Marc Anthony

What they’re looking forward to:

Creating new memories, starting a family, and growing stronger in faith as husband and wife.

Jessica and Danny’s take on the day:

I could not have imagined a more perfect day, everything went just as planned, and it was a beautiful, so beautiful it took my breath away. Thank you guys for capturing it, and letting us keep those memories forever!

We LOVE the Culpepper family! We’ve photographed them all the way from their engagement session to their first daughter’s 1 year old photos, so sweet Annabelle’s birth was HIGHLY anticipated around here! Even more exciting, they waited to find out if she was a boy or girl — so I totally admit to some Facebook stalking to find out as soon as she was born.

We had so much fun hanging out with the Culpeppers. It was especially fun to see Annabelle’s sister, Alyssa. She has grown SO MUCH from the little baby we photographed two years ago. Now, she is a walking, talking, opinionated toddler, and an excited and loving big sister. What a joy these two girls are! We loved meeting Annabelle, who was so easygoing for us. For Lauren and Chase’s sake, I hope that’s the case most of the time! She is such a little sweetheart — and as always, this family has totally stolen our hearts.

Christine and Dylan’s Raven Lodge Wedding at Huntsville State Park

The Huntsville State Park Raven Lodge is easily one of my favorite wedding venues in Houston. So when Christine and Dylan contacted us about shooting their wedding at the park, we were excited. Then, we found out that they are beer people. That sealed the deal. We had to shoot their wedding! Lucky us, we did!

Everything about Christine and Dylan’s wedding day was so easy and beautiful. These two are so laid back and totally at ease, and were so obviously in love in ready to be together forever! It was such a joy to watch them together on their wedding day, coming together as a family in a beautiful way. Their son is so charming, and my favorite part of the wedding day was immediately after the ceremony, when he ran up to give his parents a hug! That started a trend, with their parents and other loved ones going up to share their congratulations. Everyone was so excited for Christine and Dylan to be married!

We also LOVED shooting at Raven Lodge once again! We had near-perfect light and gorgeous weather. The lake was calm, and the timing was just right for Christine and Dylan to take a canoe ride together just before sunset. I think from now on, all of our weddings need to involve a canoe on a lake somehow!

The reception was a blast, too! We brought out the photobooth, and they had a live band! They also had great beer from Southern Star-so perfect!

Christine and Dylan, we loved being a part of your wedding! We can’t wait to see what lies ahead for you and your family. <3

Christi and Glen’s Fun Loving Wedding at Treebeards Downtown

This June, JD and I will enter our seventh year of photographing weddings. Seven years! Though we’re practically wedding veterans these days, I am still constantly floored by what an honor it is to capture the important memories of a couple’s wedding day (and I still blink back the occasional tear behind my camera while JD rolls his eyes at me).

We are so fortunate to continue to find couples that are so awesome and fun to work with year after year. It makes our work such a joy! We truly love all of our clients, but I am especially reminded of how lucky we are to have great clients by Christi and Glen! Call it destiny, fate, or just perfect planning, but we loved photographing Christi and Glen’s wedding so much, it was clearly meant to be.

Christi and Glen planned such an incredibly fun day. From the shuttle bus party to the adorable little flags everywhere, and superhero t-shirts and cufflinks, their day was full of personal and fun touches that made it so delightful! Add in a no-nonsense, ready to party attitude, and it was pretty much the perfect wedding. Not that we were expecting anything less! We also loved that they hosted their wedding at Treebeards, which was an outstanding reception venue. Great food in a gorgeous historic building with a nice outdoor balcony and a view of downtown? Yes please. Oh man, what a great wedding!

How they met:
Our lives overlapped! We went to the same church, had some of the same friends, I even went to the same nursing school as Glen’s sister!

The most fun part about planning the wedding:
Picking out the food and the music!

Wedding inspiration and favorite details:
We just wanted to use the color blue! Since it’s a favorite color of both of us, it seemed easy to pick that. From there, we found those antique blue mason jars and I was in love with the bright color and vintage feel, and we just took it from there. In the end we had beautiful blue jars, mercury glass vases, and antique cake stands that combined to create a really great vintage atmosphere that I thought came together beautifully! My favorite detail was definitely the hand-made antique window menus that Glen and I worked on together – we’re planning to hang them as art in our kitchen.

Favorite wedding moment:
My favorite moment was the first look. It was a great moment to just take a breath and be together and know we were taking this huge step, together. It was so wonderful to have that minute together, just the two of us. Glen had two – our first kiss, and all the dancing – he was a dance machine!

Favorite wedding day songs:
Almost all of the music we chose was meaningful in some way, it’s hard to choose a favorite. I walked down the aisle to “A Storybook Love,” which is kind of silly, but also special because it was meaningful for my adoptive father and I. Our preparation hymn was “The Servant Song” which was a tribute to my adoptive mother and our time together on a retreat. The song Glen and I danced to was “Hold On” by Michael Buble, which we picked because it talks about working through the struggles together and being there for each other. I danced with my stepfather and biological father to “Walk With You” by Edwin McCain, after spending hours on the internet looking for the perfect song to express a complicated relationship with two men whom I love very much. Glen’s garter dance was hilarious, he had spent the weeks prior to the wedding secretly learning some of the dance moves from the music video for “Suit and Tie” just for the dance!

The most fun group dance was definitely when we did “Cotton Eye Joe” line-dance style with half our guests – a lot of people thought the floor was going to cave in!!

Note from Jessica: My favorite was their cake cutting song, I Wanna Grow Old With You, from The Wedding Singer!

What they’re looking forward to:
Not planning a wedding anymore!! Also, a honeymoon!

Christi and Glen’s take on the day:
We planned this wedding with the attitude that it would be a big party – preceded by a ceremony that made us legal. We spent a lot of time planning this party, picking out music and deciding on a menu and signature cocktails and how we were going to decorate and on and on. And that turned out great, don’t get me wrong, but in the end, the best part of the day was actually getting married. The ceremony turned out to be so unexpectedly meaningful and funny and perfect, and the rest was just extra stuff. The party was awesome, but the ceremony was magic.

Fallon and James are one of those couples that have clearly been best friends forever-no matter how long they’ve been together! They are so easy and obviously perfect for each other, and it is so fun to capture love like that!

It was a gorgeous evening, and although I know the photos tell the story well, there’s something missing. I wish we could deliver them to you in Smell-o-Vision! Why? The country club was filled to the gills with fresh cloves, and it smelled AWESOME. Seriously! Super refreshing home decor tip: fill your vases with cloves like Fallon and James did!

These two threw a great party-I don’t think I ever saw the dance floor empty! Of course, that could have been because Fallon and James danced all night…everyone else had to keep up! :)

How they met:

At Wharton County Junior College through a mutual friend.

The most fun part of wedding planning:

Making decisions together and seeing how well we compromised.

Wedding inspiration:

Simple yet elegant.

Favorite wedding moment:

Seeing James’ reaction when he saw me walking down the aisle.

Favorite wedding day song:

Our first dance, “In This Life” by Colin Raye.

What Fallon and James are looking forward to in their marriage:

Living in our house together and starting our own adventure!

Why? Because we have to sit on gorgeous bridal photos like Christi’s for MONTHS before we can share them! It is the worst. Because awesome like this just demands to be unveiled immediately. Of course, we also love a great entrance and the element of surprise…so we wait. But not patiently! And since Christi and Glen got married this weekend (yay!), I can stop tapping my toes and finally post Christi’s bridal photos!

I am not exaggerating when I tell you that I don’t think I can count the number of times we all said “OMG” during this session. It was just that great. We have been dreaming of shooting at the 1940 Air Terminal Museum for years, and Christi was the *perfect* bride to shoot there! Christi was totally gorgeous, and oh man, her dress is awesome! She was an absolute pro, and we joked about how well she follows directions! :) Plus the art deco building, limestone walls, beautiful natural light, and even some really cool cloud formations made all of our air terminal dreams come true.

It was all pretty much the best day ever, and then, they let us into the hangar, where we all spent equal time geeking out over the aviation gear and you know, actually taking photos. It was there that JD captured one of my very favorite bridal photos ever: Christi hanging out in the opening of the hangar doors.
