Wyoming Destination Wedding by Civic Photos

Thursday, December 7th, 2017

An online dating success story, Marka and Adam first met through OkCupid. Although their first in-person date over coffee seemed rather low-key, sparks flew as the couple commenced talking for hours. And just like that, the connection of a lifetime was made. The couple decided to keep things simple for their nuptials, celebrating with 28 of their closest family and friends in Moran, Wy. Against the awe-inspiring view of the Teton Range, Marka and Adam exchanged their vows. “It stopped raining right as our ceremony began,” notes the bride. Following the ceremony, guests were treated to an intimate wild-game feast including buffalo filet mignon, elk and trout. “My favorite moment was getting our closest friends and family into the middle of nowhere to enjoy the beautiful surroundings…with lots of alcohol,” laughs Marka. Feast your eyes on this lovely couple’s festivities, captured in images by fine Houston wedding photography studio Civic Photos!

The buzz: “My husband and I couldn’t have picked a better photographer. Barett took great photos for our engagement!

The buzz: “If you’re looking for someone that knows what they’re doing, this is the company you’ve been looking for. Not only is the quality amazing, but the staff and employees are outstanding. Another thing I wanted to point out was their HARD work. We only had one photographer, looking at the pictures you would think we had a entire team. I mean this man was everywhere! And believe it or not, with him running around everywhere he didn’t cause a scene or disturb a thing. Heck, I didn’t know where he was half the time, but he sure didn’t miss anything! Love, love, LOVE the pictures and video!” ~Jacob

Intimate Restaurant Wedding by Civic Photos

Friday, September 8th, 2017

It’s a story as old as time: Bright-eyed, ambitious young intern meets seasoned company full-timer; water-cooler chat turns flirtatious; love ensues… (OK, we don’t really know about the water cooler part, but you get the picture!). Following a cozy proposal at home, over a home-cooked meal and wine, sweethearts Paola and Aaron made food and wine the center of their focus once again, with an elegant wedding for 35 guests, featuring an intimate church ceremony followed by a six-course French dinner at a favorite Houston restaurant. “Our wedding was meant to be a classic theme that would be beautiful years from now,” the bride tells us, and we have to say, “Yup, looks like you hit the mark perfectly!” We wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness, and invite YOU to enjoy their celebration, through these lovely pix, including gorgeous portraits at the historic Julia Ideson Library, from Civic Photos!

Black, Ivory & Gold Wedding at Chateau Cocomar by Civic Photos

Wednesday, August 30th, 2017

This week, as all of us take shelter, rebuild and regroup from the unprecedented deluge of Hurricane Harvey, and take stock of everything that is dear and precious to us, we will be sharing some of our favorite weddings of the last few years. If you need an escape, a moment of peace, a reminder of the importance of family, friends and, above all, love, please settle in, snuggle down and join us. And once the storm clouds clear, and the water recedes, let us know what we can do to help you. We are all in this together. #BeStrongHouston #LoveConquersAll

Sometimes your high school love turns into forever. Just ask Houston bride, Lynnette, who married her high school boyfriend, Marco. “We met in high school math class in 2006,” says Lynnette. “We exchanged numbers and have been dating ever since.”

Every Christmas Lynnette’s family holds an anniversary party for her parents — but little did she know that their 30th anniversary had something special in store for her as well. During the celebration, Marco made a special toast for Lynnette’s parents, congratulated them, turned around and said, “I think I am ready to start my own journey today.” He got down on one knee, and the rest was history.

The lovebirds then began to plan their celebration at Chateau Cocomar. Lynnette and Marco wanted a modern, chic theme, and got exactly that thanks to Keisha’s Kreations. The colors ivory, black and hints of gold set the tone for an elegant evening.
