When acclaimed Houston wedding videographers Alex Douglas and Whitney Henderson, of award-winning Sculpting With Time Productions, said their own “I do’s,” it was with glorious Palm Beach, Fla., as their backdrop. The couple’s wedding, with its Royal Poinciana Chapel Gardens ceremony and gorgeous Flagler Museum reception, is so utterly sigh-inducing, we’ll just go ahead and let photographer Jess Barfield’s stunning pix speak for themselves. Visit Barfield’s blog for more beautiful images of this wondrous wedding. And while you’re at it, check out Alex Douglas’s award-winning documentary “The Passage,” on the incredible history and modern-day significance of the Panama Canal, which took Best Cinematographer honors at the Harlem International Film Festival and will have its West Coast premiere on Jan. 30th at Opening Night of the huge Santa Barbara International Film Festival, where it is nominated for the Social Justice award (and where this year’s speakers include Oprah Winfrey, Martin Scorsese and Leonardo DiCaprio, to name a few).
And don’t forget to visit Sculpting With Time at the Sunday, Jan. 26 I Do! Bridal Soiree at the Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston to congratulate the newlyweds in person…and tap into their extraordinary filmmaking talents to document your own unforgettable day!
