Whitney and Gene’s sophisticated, yet simple summer wedding was a day full of cheerful family and friends, delicious foods and constantly flowing drinks, a seriously picturesque backdrop, and two playful, yet sincere lives becoming one family!
We started off our day with Gene at Hotel Icon. After a few drinks and lots appreciation expressed over the painting Whitney bought her hubby-to-be, it was time for Gene to suit up!
Next we headed to Whitney, to gush over her bridal details (those red Manolo Blahniks) and capture some photos of her stunning bridal blow!
Her Winnie Couture gown was perfect for a summer wedding in Houston!
Whitney was all smiles the ENTIRE day. ALL.DAY.LONG. Not a hint of stress, but rather happily savoring every moment! And her mood was contagious!
After lots of hugs and a few photos with her family, it was time to get married!!!! And their venue, The Dunlavy, was absolutely perfect!
And of course Bella Luna Bridal & Occasions had the evening prepared and the party already started without a catch!
Gene, I have never seen another groom SOOOOO ready!
Some favorites above and below!
I loved getting to watch Whitney and Gene exchange smiles during their hand fasting ceremony!
And then they sealed it with a kiss!!!
One of the things I admired the most about these two, was their ability to laugh at any moment! Watching them beam with happiness, then the next moment joke around, its like they were made for each other!
Once we were back inside and cooling off, it was hard to stop taking photos. Whitney and Gene’s reception details were beyond dreamy!!!!!!
And talk about the cutest seating cards ever!!!!!
After an exciting grand entrance, some seriously tasty dinner, and a sweet first dance…….
It was time to PARRRRRRRRRTAY!
And somehow, before we knew it, the time had come to send these newlyweds off!!!
Herbs and confetti, the perfect send-off combo!
Whitney and Gene, thank you both so much for letting us join in on your summer celebrations! You had such a perfect blend of sentimental and light hearted, of teary eyes and loud laughs! And it makes me so happy to think of you both continuing the fun in the years to come! Congratulations Mr and Mrs Brieck!!!

Before the summer was in full swing, we watched Teresa and Sang say “I do” in downtown Houston!
Their day started at the beautiful Annunciation Catholic Church, with stained glass windows, vintage lights, and tons of space for family and friends to watch!
One of my most favorite moments on a wedding day is watching the groom and the guests react to seeing the bride. Teresa, you were glowing!
And they were married!!!!
After some quick family photos, Teresa and Sang made time in their day for wedding party portraits! And seriously, they could not have turned out more awesome! Not only did their friends bring cold refreshments AND snacks (talk about organized), but they were hilarious AND unfairly photogenic!
Some favorites above and below!
After a few minutes of bride and groom portraits, it was time to celebrate! When we arrived at The Petroleum Club of Houston we were beyond impressed with the beautiful job Event Identity did helping keep the day relaxed and setting up the stunning reception!
Gorgeous floral centerpieces by the talented Prestige Events
Teresa’s sister and Sang’s brother made some seriously unforgettable toasts!
Owl Shots did an awesome job with the photobooth!
Thank you Teresa and Sang for letting us be a part of your special festivities! We couldn’t have imagined a better day for your both! Cheers to the newlyweds!

One of my favorite wedding moments ever was watching Nathan and Rob walking down the isle together……..

After a beautiful first dance, some hilarious toasts, and a few trips to the open bar, the reception concert started! And yes, with a band like Hyperphlyy, its a CONCERT!
And after what felt like the blink of an eye, it was time to wish the newlyweds a good night!!!!

Sometimes the best way to celebrate your new life together is with is in the company of your closest family and friends and and at a place like home (and seriously photogenic)! Dana and Jeremy’s wedding day was literally all sunshine – a glowing bride and carefree groom, and seriously perfect Spring weather!
We loved Dana’s bouquet, the soft succulents mixed with bright pops of beautiful flowers. created by the talented Blythe & Co.
After hanging out with Dana and her ladies, we headed over to get Jeremy dressed for their first look! I always love seeing the Groom’s excited smile when I tell him its time to get ready to see his bride!
One of my favorite things about Dana and Jeremy is how they can be so swet one moment and laughing hysterically the next. Its really is a perfect balance <3
After a first look and some formal photos, it was time to get married!!!! A Splendid Event did a great job taking care of the details and creating a relaxed, yet organized wedding day!
And then they were MARRIED!!!!!
It was so much fun getting to play in the wildflowers AND hang out with the family goat. Really, what more could you want to do on your wedding day?!
Some favorites above and below….
After heartfelt first dances, tear jerking and sincere toasts, and one hilarious cupcake tasting, it was time to party!!!
Obviously these two sisters knew the drill! <3
Dana and Jeremy, thank you both so much for reminding us that a wedding can be a day of gut busting laughter AND seriously heart melting moments. Spending the day watching the two of you begin your new chapter together was unforgettable.

On Julia and Patrick’s wedding day, it was hard to believe we hadn’t traveled back in time! Their classic, vintage celebration began with their vows at Palmer Memorial Episcopal Church!
I always love getting to see the excitement in bride and groom’s eyes as they walk down the isle to say “I do”!!!
And then they were husband and wife!
Some favorites above and below!!! <3
After an intimate ceremony with family and close friends, it was time to head over to the Historic Heights Firestation!
And as were stepping into the building, and saw all the personal touches Julia and Patrick had made, it felt like we have traveled back in time!!!!

It was so exciting and romantic getting to photograph Whitney and Gene in some of the same locations that they first met, they had their first date, and where they grew inseparable!
And could they have picked a better spot than the Black Labrador?! Yummy drinks and an atmosphere that makes you feel so far away from the middle of our city!
Some favorites above and below!!! <3
After a quick outfit change (Whitney, can we please swap wardrobes?!), we headed to the street where their lives grew closer together and where their everyday, family memories grew!
That afternoon light, Gene’s sweet hugs, and Whitney’s bright smile…. talk about a perfect Sunday!!!
Whitney and Gene, thank you two so much for sharing a part of your history with me! I am beyond excited to toast you both after you say “I do” this summer!
Cheers to the future Mr and Mrs Brieck!!!

Amber and Alex’s gorgeous fall wedding was such a dreamy day! From the moment we arrived at Butler’s Courtyard, we were swept off our feet by the sweet hugs of a sincere wedding party and carried away by the beautiful florals by Haute Flowers,
The talented Courtney Richards did a fabulous job on all the ladies hair and with Hey Lovely on make-up duty, these ladies looked flawless!
After getting Amber ready, we headed next door to check-in on Alex! Prepared with beer socks and a good sense of humor, Alex was ready for the day!
I love that Amber surprised Alex with something extra special – cuff links with a photo of his father, who was Alex’s best man in spirit. Amber’s thoughtfulness added such profound meaning to the day…
<3 Of course Alex’s reaction would be so powerful when we saw his bride for the first time!
After a cool fall sunset, it was time to head inside to celebrate!
The hilarious dachshund ice sculpture and the artistic cake by Cakes by Jula made for the perfect reception centerpieces!
Some favorites above and below. Amber and Alex’s friends and family gave some of the most entertaining and heart touching speeches ever! It was obvious how important this day was to not only the newlyweds, but all of their family and friends too!
These first dances were a mix of tears and laughs….some favorites above and below!
And before we knew it, it was time to say good night to the newlyweds!
Amber and Alex, thank you two so much for allowing us to capture the inextinguishable love that you two share. I cannot begin to tell you how much I admire that you comfort one another when life gets tough, and manage to grow closer when many would fall apart. I loved that your wedding day was an absolute celebration of joy over sadness, and I hope you never stop celebrating your love! Cheers Mr and Mrs Miller!!!!!

Any afternoon I get to spend outside with a sweet couple and lots of sunshine counts as a perfect day to me!
Hanging out with Lindsey and Aaron, sharing impressively terrible dad jokes and listening to their guitars sing along with the breeze at sunset, why can’t every Friday be as dreamy?!

Some favorites above and below!!!
Lindsey and Aaron, thank you two so much for teaching me some prize winning jokes (my kids won’t stop telling them to EVERYONE…and that’s not an exaggeration) and for letting me hear the most beautiful sunset ever! I don’t think I’ve ever been so anxious for July! Cheers to all of the excitement that is waiting for you both this summer!!!!
