I can’t begin to tell you how lucky JD and I feel to know Lauren, Chase, and their lovely families. Every minute with them has been a great joy, and we always feel so welcomed by them! Not to mention that their entire wedding was so gorgeous and full of style! Let’s take a little sneak peek into Lauren and Chase’s big day.
Before the ceremony, Lauren and her bridesmaids took a moment to admire their jewels.
We took the guys to hang out in the church playground. You know, because that’s just what we do.
Before long, the ceremony was getting started!
You may remember from Lauren and Chase’s engagement session that Chase is a Houston firefighter (who managed to get us in to the downtown fire station to take pictures!). Naturally, the Houston Heights Historic Fire House was a great choice for their wedding reception. It was our first time working here, but I hope it won’t be our last! It is such an interesting and beautiful place, and so perfect for these two!
Before I say anything else, I have to take a moment to tell you that Lauren and Chase had a queso fountain. A QUESO FOUNTAIN! Remember two years ago when everyone was freaking out about chocolate fountains (myself included)? Lauren and Chase just went and blew all of our minds to pieces with a queso fountain! I was able to restrain myself from sticking my head in it. I am, of course, a true professional. Behold, a lovely gift from Ninfa’s:
So, on to the reception! A few details:
The dollar dance was a runaway hit, and Lauren’s sister Shannon did a great job keeping the crowd moving-and of course coughing up the cash!
By the way, have I mentioned how incredibly excited we are that Shannon is getting married, too?! She and her fiance Keith are on our calendars for next October, and we will be seeing them soon for their engagement session! We can’t wait!
During the garter toss, Chase went to great lengths to prove to everyone that he wasn’t using his hands!
A bunch of Lauren and Chase’s neighbors made it to the wedding. What a nice group of people!
Everyone had a great time dancing the night away!
Some of the photo booth props escaped to the dance floor!
The reception photo booth was, as always, lots of fun for everyone. We introduced a few new props to our box of goodies, and the crowd favorite was clearly the Hulk hands.
There was a little sweetness, too!
Lauren and Chase had sparklers for their exit-we love sparklers!!
Lauren and Chase, thank you so much for inviting us into your fabulous lives. You have been such a joy to work with, and we hope to see you again soon!
JD and Jessica
