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!
