Boho Waterfront Wedding At Waters Edge

A Tinder connection sparked into true love for Breanna and John (…and then became fodder for a moment of comic relief during the best man’s speech at their wedding!). John, a baseball coach, brought Breanna, a flight attendant, to the East Coast for Christmas, 2016, and proceeded to propose to her at the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree…awww. Their winter engagement led, eventually, to a spring wedding at Gulf Coast lakefront venue Waters Edge, where the couple said their vows beneath a billowing canopy with the waters of Clear Lake as their backdrop. Accents of deep red and tons of greenery brought fun and vibrancy to the pair’s boho waterfront wedding…as did a super cool VW mobile photo booth! We wish all of our love to the newlyweds, and thank them for sharing their adorable Houston lakefront wedding with us…and with you! Click here to read the rest of this post »
