Kaitlyn and Christian have a unique love that many may never get to witness and I was honored to capture their special day. Katilyn is a quiet but cheerful young lady and Christian is a comedian but sharp as blade. Together these to make a formidable couple. After their engagement session which we did earlier in the year, I expected the wedding to be elegant and a blast at the least. Alexia of the TheSavvyConsultants delivered once again; she and her team completely revamped the look of the Hughes Manor venue. The floral arrangements may have been some of the best I've seen all year, but that’s what I have grown to expect from Plant N Petals. The day begin at Houston's historic hotel, Hotel ICON, which is located in the heart of downtown. Kim Clark was the makeup artist for the day, and Kim always does an amazing job. Christian and the fellas got ready at home and worked with my second photographer Mike Munoz. From Hotel Icon, Kaitlyn and her bridesmaids rode a trolley to the midtown church where we captured some amazing portraits. Their first look was a happy and fun moment shared between the two.
Once the ceremony began, Kaitlyn and her father began their walk down the aisle and at the first glimpse of Kaitlyn, Christian become emotional. The vows were unique and food for the soul, and then Kaitlyn got some awesome airtime as they jumped the broom! During our post-ceremony portrait session, the sun blessed us with warm rays before we made our way to Hughes Manor where the party began. The decor was amazing and the ice cream bar was a great touch. The first dance was great, and then Kaitlyn’s father played an air guitar during their father-daughter dance before Christian and his mother revealed they were professional lines dancers. But the event that stole the show was Kaitlyn’s sister parody of Bodak Yellow in which they incorporated Christian and how he was a "Good Dude". Over all the night was stellar and the blue smoke bomb exit was perfect… but hey don't take my word for it.
