Another gorgeous day for a wedding! π
Held at the venerable St James Catholic Church in Port Arthur Texas, Christin and Eric’s wedding was a mixture of retro, class and a huge side of fun!
We’ve been following Christin and Eric through their engagement session, her bridal portraits and finally they get married! π
Here’s her beautiful retro wedding dress:
Christin begins to get ready for the big day (beautiful natural window light!):
Eric and his (grooms) men gathering forces:
As you can see… black tuxes/ties and Christin’s wedding dress – a little retro, all class π Some final prep before entering the church:
The ceremony, aided by St James’ event coordinator Jeff Lewis, went smoooooth… Here Christin takes a moment with her dad before walking down the aisle:
and the big moment arrives…
I just love the “We did it!” look on their faces π We may spend months and years planning the wedding and the ceremony is over so quickly… Limo ride to the Beaumont Country Club for the reception:
Wow! I’ve never seen the Beaumont Country Club looking better! It’s a great venue for a wedding reception – event coordinator Stephanie East had the place looking lush and elegant. Bando’s Catered the excellent food (coordinated by the extremely helpful Worley Antil (thank you Worley π )).
mmmmm… prime rib π
Wait, have you seen the cake?
I’ll just say this, it looked almost as good as it tasted π
Back to the festivities… Eric and Christin in their first dance:
Some details in Stephanie’s and Worley’s work:
Pretty swanky! π
Christin dances a bit with her dad:
Actually, Christin, her dad, and the WHOLE party danced a lot, not being completely through until well after midnight π
Some more reception festivities like the cake cutting, sharing and the bouquet and garter toss:
For those interested, the full-size versions of these images are always available π
The party does wind to a close eventually as Eric and Christin leave through a tunnel of sparklers:
A few more images below, thank you Eric and Christin for a great time and allowing me to be a part. π
