Lavender and Coral Galveston Texas Wedding at Hotel Galvez

When Greg cut his foot on a Memorial Day weekend river-house trip, Laura, who barely knew him, was urged by her matchmaking best friend to “‘fix his foot because I was in school to become a physician assistant,” she tells us. Little did Laura know she was taping up the tootsie of her future husband. Two years later, the pair wed at Galveston’s historic Hotel Galvez & Spa, amidst billowing white draping, lush lavender, mauve and coral flowers, and lots and lots of family. “The entirety of the wedding was very family oriented. The ceremony was written by our immediate family over a long dinner a week before the wedding. Greg’s father performed the ceremony, with my parents giving a reading. My matron of honor was my sister and the best man was Greg’s brother, who wore his U.S. Marines dress blues,” recounts Laura. And while Laura and Greg’s fancy moves—a result of dance classes prior to the big day—elicited oohs and aahs, another dance-floor moment at this Texas wedding was even more moving: “An anniversary dance was performed, with my aunt and uncle being the last dancing, with 43 years of marriage. Greg and I are always compared to this particular couple due to over a foot height difference between us, which my aunt and uncle also share; that was a special touch.” Congratulations to the newlyweds (and their long-wed relatives!), and big thanks to JW Baugh Photography for the pretty pictures!

Vintage Elegant Hotel Galvez Wedding by Joshua Tyi Photography

There’s something so darn timeless and captivating about Shaw and Kael’s morning wedding at Galveston’s historic Hotel Galvez. Everything from the wash of coastal light to the vintage-inspired palette of warm golden brown and bright poppy red to the charmingly attired couple themselves is picture-perfect. Here’s something else that was perfect: the groom’s acknowledgement of the the day’s precious moments. “One thing I really appreciated was that throughout the day Kael would stop me and say, ‘Let’s remember this moment,’ which was a nice way to slow down and not forget anything important amidst a busy, emotional day,” explains Shaw. Grooms: Take note! Everyone else, take a moment to savor this delightful Galveston wedding, with fabulous photos courtesy of Houston-based Joshua Tyi Photography.

Vibrant, Whimsical Aquarium Wedding by RSVP Studios

We all know it’s important to “love thy neighbor.” But Vanessa and Brandon took the adage WAY to heart. As fellow renters in a Houston apartment complex, the two bumped into each other one night in the hallway. “After meeting once, we couldn’t seem to be without each other, and started out adventure,” Vanessa says. The highlight (so far) of that joyful journey? That would be the couple’s June wedding, starting with a splendid ceremony at Galveston’s historic Grace Episcopal Church, and culminating with a fun-filled (if somewhat fishy) reception at Moody Gardens Aquarium. In her utterly dreamy Exclusive Edition by Allure gown from Houston’s Weddings by Debbie, and with that dazzling smile, Vanessa is the very picture of wedding-day glamour and giddiness—even when snuggling her sweetie whilst ol’ looms overhead. Seriously, this delightfully playful—and still exceptionally elegant—celebration reminds us of just how much fun a wedding can and should be. We’re so thankful to Vanessa and Brandon for sharing their exuberant personalities and special day with us, and equally grateful to RSVP Studios for the superb pix!
