    Weddings at St Jude in Beaumont | Sheila and Daniel

    Sheila and Daniel were married recently in a beautilful ceremony at St Jude Catholic Church in Beaumont! I’ve known Sheila’s parents, the Kusnoor MD’s, for many years. They are 2 of the friendliest and most compassionate physicians in our area, it was an honor to photograph their daughter’s big day 🙂 A good portion of the medical community in Beaumont were in attendance today. Sheila and Daniel work at/attend Vanderbilt University in Nashville and were in town for the festivities. The wedding planner Rosalind Dunkleberger had assembled an amazing team of wedding artists: Makeup Artist Erica Strazz, Floral and Event Designer Stephanie Do of La Belle Fleur, Custom Stationery expert…

    Beaumont Weddings | Krystal and Ross ~ Part Deux

    And we’re back! 🙂 We last left our two lovebirds as they were on their way to meeting the one they’ve waited for all their lives – this “first glimpse” was truly magical, watch how the tension builds: … and dissipates 🙂 I was there and I still love to watch the slideshow – it starts slowly and builds speed as she moves across the floor until Krystal is in Ross’s arms, then it slows down again – a kiss, a hug, they step back to admire each other, then more embracing. Ah… this is how wedding days should be. Experienced. We as a culture race from beginning to end,…
