    Nederland Weddings ~ Jana and Cody

    We began the day bright and early at Intrigue Salon – Ashley is working her magic and everyone is huddled around a pretty flowergirl prissing for the camera: The scene is set for a whirlwind morning of teased hair and hairspray, let’s get started! “Mom! Jaclyn is sticking her tongue out at me again! “Jaclyn, if you don’t stop, your face is going to stick like that!” :p Aaawww! It’s actually happening! I loved this quiet moment toward the end of our salon time with the two sisters Jana and Jaclyn: A quick lunch at McAlister’s and we head to the church: Getting ready on your wedding day is a…

    Nederland Weddings ~ Kati and Andrew

    We met Kati and Andrew at their Texas A&M engagement session this past year – Kati always the bubbly giggling one, Andrew the quieter one, and both dyed through and through maroon red 🙂 The day began bright early with Kati and her girls at Onstage Hair Salon in Beaumont – yahoo! Lots of great natural window light for pretty pictures 🙂 Leave it to the Greek Goddess to match her toenails with her favorite sorority’s shoes 🙂 Meanwhile, Andrew arrives at the church to get ready: I love the movement in these two as Kati slips her gorgeous wedding gown on: Why yes, it does take seven attendants to…

    Nederland Weddings ~ Katie and Neal

    Katie and Neal were married recently at Wesley United Methodist Church in Nederland, with a beautiful reception at Beau Reve, here are a few of our favorites from their day. 🙂 You won’t find a more manly pair of grooms shoes in existence: I love how seriously Katie is applying the final perfections and her mom and sister are having a great time in the background 😀 The wedding decor at Beau Reve was perfection, Clyde’s did an exquisite job as usual 🙂 You just *can’t* have a wedding reception without a dancing and spinning flowergirl 🙂 What a fun day! Thank you and congratulations to Mr and Mrs Neal!…

    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.…

    Nederland Weddings | Stacey and Jeremy – The Day After

    If you’ve been reading the blog for a while, you remember Stacey and Jeremy’s beautiful backyard wedding this past summer – beautiful until the middle of Stacey’s vows and the storms came a calling – it was still beautiful, we just finished under umbrellas and, soaked to the bone, moved on to the fun reception. 🙂 Since then we’ve discussed doing a “day after” session, where the couple gets to relax and take some fun portraits in their wedding gown and suit. Wanting to use even more water, it was just too cold to go for it until this past week when we took a little weekend trip down to…
