    Nederland Wedding ~ Lauren and Chris

    Lauren and Chris were married recently in a beautiful ceremony at First United Methodist Church in Nederland. We began the day at Tic Tac Nail (you so pretty :)) – a little pampering goes a long way to keeping you on your feet through the ceremony and dancing to follow. Before moving on the to church for a little finishing DIY, Lauren and her girls stop at Dornbos Park for a toast: Right about the same time, across town, Chris and his men follow suit: Making sure it’s perfect: It’s a whirlwind of activity as we get hair did, makeup, gifts, lacing… all leading up to the moment. Sparkly! 🙂…

    Lindsey and Trent – Sneak Peek

    I am currently in the middle of editing photos from Lindsey and Trent’s wedding – I don’t deliver proofs so retouching all the finished images from the wedding is an investment of time. I do want to post a few of my favorites from their beautiful wedding to hold us both over until we get to view their premier soon. To say she was a little excited to see Trent may be a small understatement : 😀

    Matt and Celina | Dance! Dance! Dance!

    We last left Celina and Matt as they were leaving St. Elizabeth Catholic Church on their way to the wedding reception in the IBEW Hall in Beaumont. People have begun to filter in to the hall, gorgeously decorated by Kathy Pitre – it was floral, peacock feathers, lights, silver, crystal, a little over the top and all Celina: As Celina and Matt arrive at the reception hall, they move quickly into their first dance: … then she and her dad: Who apparently had been practicing! Their choreographed dance routine was pulled off expertly, both throwing down some moves I’m sure they hurt from for a day or so 🙂 Too.…

    Southeast Texas Weddings | Ashley and AJ

    We’re back! Warning: a plethora of pretty photos are ahead. 🙂 Part two continues Ashley and AJ’s wedding day story. We last saw Ashley walking up the sidewalk to the sanctuary for First Baptist Church. The table has been set as rose petals strewn about the aisle lay waiting their purpose: The organist is playing softly in the background, everything is ready as 14 months of preparation slide perfectly into place for the following moments: AJ has walked in as members of the bridal party are escorted down the aisle – he perks up noticeably when his bride makes her appearance: Here she is! All eyes are on AJ as…

    Ashley and AJ’s Photo Guestbook

    Hurray! Ashley and AJ’s beautiful wedding was this past weekend so I can now finally show their wedding ceremony signature guestbook. 🙂 At 8.5″x11″ (opening to 22″) with a nice photo canvas cover and their images on art paper, it was the perfect way to show off their engagement photos and have a personalized custom guestbook for well-wishes. “Lucky” by Colbie Caillat Displayed in the foyer area leading into the Grand Ballroom at the Elegante, it was filled with signatures from loved ones by the end of the evening. Ashley opted for lines for signatures, others choose blank spaces, either works well for these and with care will last you…

    Christin and Eric’s Wedding Album

    Another one finished quite a while back, Christin and Eric’s wedding day took place at the St James in Port Arthur with a *fun* reception to follow at the Beaumont Country Club where Stephanie East had it looking gorgeous 🙂 Remember that the finished album is much larger–14×10 inches in size and 28 inches across when open. As always, if you’re reading this on our Facebook page, the images are much nicer on the actual blog post. Song: “Dreams Collide” by Colbie Caillat Catering by Bandos, the whole day was beautiful and the story of their wedding day turned out beautiful as well. 🙂 You can opt for many covers…

    Morgin and Patrick’s Wedding Album

    Morgin and Patrick’s wedding album is done! Actually, it’s been done for quite a while I’ve just been looking for time to write about it 🙂 I think it turned out real well – keep in mind that the finished album is much larger–14×10 inches in size and 28 inches across when open. As always, if you’re reading this on our Facebook page, the images are much nicer on the actual blog post. The song “When You Love Her Like Crazy” by my old friend Mark Chesnutt, was the song Morgin and Patrick danced to in their Neches Room Reception. Catering by the always outstanding Beaumont Catering Company. We are…
