Crystal Ballroom Summer Wedding with Vintage Touches

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

When you’re a school kid, a prank phone call often leads to getting busted. Almost never does it lead to getting…married—Christina and Kevin being the exception. “I went to an all-girls high school and Kevin went to an all-boys high school. My friends and I called Kevin during a sleepover and forgot to dial *67. Kevin texted my phone back the next day and we started texting back and forth, eventually met, and the rest it history!” And what a cute history it is. Knowing Christina’s passion for the Houston Astros, Kevin used the ruse of a Minute Maid Park tour to propose to his future Mrs., while his family hid out in the dugout taking pix of the whole shebang. The pair wed in a traditional Catholic Mass followed by a reception for 230 of their nearest and dearest at the historic Crystal Ballroom at The Rice, done up in seasonal shades of peach, light orange and yellow. Traditional wedding rituals abounded, including a formal reception line, a marriage dance, a money dance, and bouquet and garter tosses. We’re grateful to Christina and Kevin for sharing their classic and perfectly personalized Houston wedding with us. Thanks, too, to George Street Photography for the fine wedding photos!
