From Julie Wilhite… Beth and Carl’s wedding was an intimate, relaxed day filled with family and friends. Starting with nervous preparations at the Hotel Derek, where the couple chose to see each other prior to the ceremony.  Upon seeing each other, their nerves were instantly calmed and the energy between the two of them was excited and so in love. The ceremony took place in the gardens of Ouisie’s Table, followed by a late lunch with their close family.  The party then continued at Carl’s bar in the eclectic Montrose area of Houston – Anvil.  Beth and Carl were then surrounded by even more friends as they enjoyed yummy special cocktails, Canadian pierogis celebrating Carl’s Canadian background and Texas cupcakes. The truly special part of their celebration was watching how friends and family came together to make their day special and filled with beautiful details.

Beth and Carl were truly a unique couple – very down to earth, humble and incredibly in love.  Beth described Carl as a hard-core, burly biker dude and upon meeting him, you realized he was really a big teddy bear.  The couple spent most of their engagement separated by continents since Carl has been located in Dubai for work.  Beth did most of their planning and ran all of the ideas and plans by Carl at night over skype.  She wanted to make sure that this day was about the two of them and that it truly represented who they are.  The couple now happily lives in Dubai.
