Christin and Eric are Married!

Another gorgeous day for a wedding! πŸ™‚

St James Port Arthur Texas

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! πŸ™‚
Here’s her beautiful retro wedding dress:

I just love the “We did it!” look on their faces πŸ™‚ 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 πŸ™‚ )).
mmmmm… prime rib πŸ™‚

Wait, have you seen the cake?

I’ll just say this, it looked almost as good as it tasted πŸ˜‰
