It takes a special kind of couple to roll with the punches, especially when that means finding a new venue just months before the big day. Their backup location, Garden Grove proved to be a pretty incredible “plan B” and Jenna McElroy told the story behind her camera lens. Go see the celebration unfold in The Vault!

From Jenna McElroy…Callie and Ian have an inspirational, contagious kind of love. When they were told mere months before their wedding date, that their original wedding venue would not be finished being built in time for their April 9 nuptials, the couple took everything in stride. They knew that everything happened for a reason, and that no matter what happened with the wedding details- that becoming husband and wife was the most important part, and that would happen venue or not.
They found a new venue- Garden Grove- and this was the very first wedding that the venue hosted. All of the vendors came together and helped to create a special, wonderful, and memorable day for this couple to remember and cherish forever.

This is not your average hometown wedding. It’s the kind of wedding you’d swear was straight from the pages of a magazine and it has everything to do with Katie Grant, Bows and Arrows, Hey Lovely Makeup and the entire vendor crew. Think lush florals, a dream Mori Lee ballgown, and a sense of Southern charm from start to finish. The Vault is guaranteed to be your new little happy place.

From Katie Grant Photography… Katy and David, both residents of LA, decided to head back to Katy’s hometown to celebrate their wedding with family and classic Southern Charm in Houston, Texas.
The couple chose the quaint and charming venue of Tiny Boxwoods for it’s elegant yet rustic vibe. Tiny Boxwoods was transformed into a garden oasis with lush florals and simple tablescapes.
Katy got ready in her childhood home and wore her mother’s actual wedding shoes. She looked stunning in her Mori Lee gown which was perfectly complimented by her bountiful Bows and Arrows bouquet. The two were all smiles all day and their excitement about spending their lives together was all too apparent.

Rain couldn’t keep the bliss away from these two beautiful brides. Smiles never ceased even as umbrellas popped open. Surrounded by loved ones, these ladies said “I do” in a small, intimate garden and celebrated all night away with food, wine and lots and lots of glowing candles. I had happy chills and a warm heart watching this clip from Nathan Willis Wedding Films and I’m pretty sure you will do. Happy Saturday all :)
From Nathan Willis Wedding Films… Lauren and Raley were one of the sweetest couples we have ever worked with. They met in college and have been together for ten years! They were so happy on their wedding day, and they didn’t even mind a little rain, even with an outdoor ceremony. Lauren said the rain made her feel like she was in “Pride and Prejudice.” It was a small, intimate garden ceremony, followed by a beautiful candlelit dinner, where their family toasted them, and everyone laughed and cried. We couldn’t have been more honored to be there to capture all the love and laughter.
