Port Arthur Wedding – Shonte and Jim

Shonte and Jim were married in a beautiful wedding in Port Arthur, Texas recently. Reginald Campbell of Studio Phenom fame came over from League City to shoot as the second photographer – a very accomplished/talented photographer in his own right, we’ve discussed working together for a while now and today was the day 🙂

OK, back to the wedding: The girls are getting ready, makeup in one room, hair in another, it’s a flurry of activity leading up to the ceremony:

The men step into their tuxes in a few moments, and spend the rest of the time working on bow ties and sipping liquid courage:

The flower girls and ring bearers are ready and spend their time doing what kids do best:

hehe, they were cute kids 🙂
Finally, the moment has arrived – this church had 2 aisles, so the bridal party walked up one aisle and the bride and groom walked the other. Here Jim places a few rose petals for his flower:

The pastor says a prayer, dedicating the couple to God and each other:

After the unity candle, first kiss and a nice promenade by the couple, it was off to the reception nearby:
