Houston, TX – Marie and Mike’s Petroleum Club of Houston Wedding

A gorgeous bride, a dapper groom, and wedding details to make you swoon!  Marie and Mike had  the most modern romantic wedding I’ve ever seen!

Our morning started early, but couldn’t have gotten off to a better start without the help of A Pretty Box (who else can be on her toes for 18 hours with a smile?)!!!!

Marie and Mike did a fabulous job entertaining their guests.  They had special surprises for the kids (coloring books, games), yummy drinks for the adults, and a Lion Dance for everyone! The excitement and energy from the young ladies under the elaborate costumes was so inspiring!
