My wedding day was nothing but spectacular! Even though we were having an outside ceremony under a big, beautiful palapa, and had a high chance of thunderstorms, everything was perfect! We arrived at the bridal suite around 10, enjoyed a few hours to ourselves (us girls), then got started with hair and makeup. Brandi Palacios and her team were amazing. I saw them do things with hair that I didn’t think was even possible. My mom has very short hair, they put extensions in and made her look like a princess! My bridesmaid’s hair and makeup look amazing, plus my hair and makeup were on point! I couldn’t have asked for better ladies to work with.
My photographer Amber Thompson Martin was there earlier for all the fun and made sure she got every shot that she could. Not only was she our photographer, but she helped with moving a few things last minute due to rain chances, and made the necessary calls that needed to be made. Her personality is such a joy to be around and made my wedding day so much fun! She helped execute everything and her pictures are beyond excellent!
Our wedding coordinator Jenifer Cave with Journey of Love was also such an amazing woman to be around. She worked her butt of and made sure everything went smoothly and in a timely manner. She even helped break everything down at the end of the night, which was definitely a big relief. Her husband Chuck Cave was our officiant, and I can only say his professionalism really stood out, and he put on the most beautiful ceremony.
Now, let me get started on food. I started looked early due to us being on a very tight budget. Vickie and Michael with Roll’en Thunder BBQ came all the way our from Cleveland, TX to Houston for us to sample their food. Oh man, was it amazing! We hired them on the spot! They also are such great people to be around and their hospitality and prices were spot on!
My florist Sarah Williams Elmore with Bell’s Bouquets made GORGOUES faux bouquets, boutonnieres, and corsages. Looking at these things you would never know they were fake. I sent her a few pics of what I envisioned and she made everything personalized to my liking.
Finally, my stationery. Unica Forma was perfect to work with and changed everything to my liking. They were so easy to talk to and work with as far as what I had envisioned for my invites and save the dates. Plus, their prices were super affordable!
15 minutes before the ceremony it did start to rain, but literally within 10 minute before I was to walk down the aisle the rain stopped, and it dried up! It was perfect and the weather felt amazing outside! It was the best day of my life and I wish I could do it all over again. The walk down the aisle to the Main Title of Star Wars with my father was beyond one of my favorite memories. I remember him asking me “is that Star Wars,” I said “Well, yeah, you know how much Nick loves Star Wars!” He goes, “oh lord!” with the biggest smile and laugh on his face! Once we got up there Nick complete blew everyone away with his vows, which he didn’t prepare a head of time and told me he was going to speak straight from the heart. OH man, did he ever! Everyone was crying, even my grown man of a brother! Everything was perfect!
