Classic Houstonian Hotel Wedding by Nicole Chatham Photography

There’s something delightful about the idea of falling in love at your sweatiest, grittiest, most makeup-less best. That’s exactly what happened to Houston bride Christina, whose personal trainer Bart became her husband one day this past May. The couple’s Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa wedding, with its rose-petal-strewn garden ceremony and ballroom reception is the very essence of refined Southern beauty mixed with down-home revelry—in Christina’s words, “a classic, elegant, black-tie event…that was fun!” But amid all the splendor of Blooming Gallery’s creamy rose-and-hydrangea arrangements and twinkling crystal candelabra, all the music and lively Bright Star Productions lighting, nothing shone more radiantly than the bride’s absolutely amazing smile and irresistible dimples (we’re certain Bart would agree). Cheers to Nicole Chatham for her wonderful photos of this wonderful Houston wedding. And our happiest wishes to the happy couple!
