Hotel Galvez Wedding By Kelli Durham Photography

“Austin and I went to the same elementary school, but being in different grades, we didn’t know each other well,” says bride Emily. But, fatefully it turns out, their mothers became close friends in recent years, and Austin’s mom invited Emily’s family to attend her 93-year-old uncle’s wedding, at her house, to his 84-year-old girlfriend (!!). Emily attended the nuptial celebration, and, well…who wouldn’t be prompted to fall in love in the presence of such a wedding! For the couple’s own marriage celebration, Galveston was a natural choice: “Both of us have over 100 years of family connections to the island,” Emily explains, noting that her grandparents had their own wedding reception at Hotel Galvez & Spa (Austin and Emily’s choice of venue), in 1946. Their Catholic ceremony included a special message imparted by Pope Francis on how to love one another during marriage, which Emily counts as a highlight of their wedding day. For their reception, the hotel’s famed Music Hall was decorated with lush flowers in shades of blush and ivory, and tabletop decor featuring pops of midnight blue and sparkling gold. Enjoy this peek into the pair’s classic, elegant Texas wedding celebration, through photos by Houston’s immensely talented Kelli Durham, and join us in wishing these two a lifetime of love and happiness!

Miami Summer Engagement Shoot By Civic Photos

“Gary and I met in New Orleans in August of 2013,” Erin says. “I always joke that it was love at first sight because the night we first met we also shared our first kiss. I was working in New Orleans as a local television broadcaster and Gary was visiting from Nashville on a brief work trip. It was truly serendipity that we ever crossed paths, but from the moment it happened we became inseparable. Five years later, we are planning the wedding of our dreams [Dec. 8, 2018] in Winter Park, Fla. As much as we love the sophisticated romance of our wedding venue and our first engagement shoot, we wanted to create some intimate and authentic images that capture our life in Miami. For our second engagement shoot with Houston-based Civic Photos we visited Española Way, a colorful and vibrant part of South Beach. This is a place we’ll visit for lunch and people-watching on the weekends. We finished the shoot at the modern and luxurious COMO Metropolitan Hotel. We love the Art Deco interior design of the rooms and the tropical-oasis vibes by the pool. The session was a blast to create and we could not be more pleased with the final images. No matter what the future holds for us or where we might live, we will always have these memories of Miami captured through the lens of Civic Photos.” Let’s take a closer look, shall we??
