I am always trying to get caught up on the blog – at least I think about it often. I figured the only way to do that was to actually quit thinking about it and just do it. I believe there was a famous shoe commercial that said the same thing. Ya.
Shellie and Matt were married at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church in downtown Houston. Being a houston wedding photographer who lives in spring, means I get to travel all over town for weddings, occassionally there will be one in Spring, but not often. The church was absolutely magnificent, one of the oldest in Houston. You can tell by all of the wood, especially in the ceilings.
Shellie and Matt’s wedding was really fantastic. One of her bridesmaids actually MADE her dress! It looked fantastic on her. Matt had a best “girl”, which was a first, for me anyway. St. Paul’s has a pretty restrictive policy regarding wedding photography, you are only allowed to photograph from the balcony and absolutely no flash photography inside the sanctuary. It was all good though, we used some fast glass with a great zoom, and were able to get all of the action.
Their reception was at the Crowne Plaza Hotel, downtown. They started with their toasts and first dance, and then everyone participated in a Grand March. For those of you that don’t know, a Grand March is a Czech tradition. It begins with the couple dancing underneath arched arms, the last people in the line, follow, and so on and so on. It’s a lot of fun and gets everyone up on the dance floor. There was some REALLY acrobatic dancing! They ended their evening with a bubble exit and paused for just a second…for the photo on the stairway.
