While they met in 2010 as athletes attending the same college, it wasn’t until Brian mentioned the film “Why Did I Get Married?” on Twitter that he and Stephanie had their first real conversation. A friendship ensued, followed by a long courtship, until July 4th, 2017, when Brian proposed to Stephanie, surrounded by his closest family members. Amidst laughs, games, food and fireworks, Brian sat playing cards with gathered guests, “as I was cluelessly scrolling through Facebook,” Stephanie says. “Little did I know the whole family was watching my every move,” as Brian waited for the right moment to pop the question.

They both love tropical fruit, coconut water and spending their weekends cooking, and doing bible education work. They both name kindness and dedication to family as the qualities they love most in each other. And on one fine spring day, at a castle-like Houston wedding venue, Lisa and Melbon both said “I do,” in front of 100 close friends and family members. Their wedding celebration, which incorporated the couple’s Caribbean, Portuguese and Indian cultures, surrounded gathered guests with beautiful, larger-than-life white, blush and peach flower arrangements and tons of candles, courtesy of Houston floral design firm Plants N’ Petals.

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??
