Bright Pink + Glamorous Gold Will Never Go Out Style

This Bride was made for the silver screen and her wedding was perfectly fit for an old Hollywood movie, from the gorgeous rose bouquet in blush and bright pink, to her classic hairstyle. She wed her handsome Groom surrounded by gold glam and Dana Fernandez captured it all. If you need us, we’ll be pinning every pic (this, this and this are must see’s!) from the Vault and loving every single second of it!

From Dana Fernandez Photography… Brett and Kaci’s wedding day was absolutely worthy of a cinematic love story. In true old Hollywood style, Kaci worked with Serendipitous Event Planning to chose neutrals, gold and pinks for her décor. She looked poised, elegant and truly royal in her Essense of Australia dress. Brett looked like a dapper leading man in his finely cut tuxedo by Michael Kors. Together, they are a truly charming couple – as completely likable as they are ready for the silver screen!

To add to the sophisticated theme, the two were married at a romantic French Chateau inspired venue, called Chateau Cocomar which is nestled away within a Houston suburb. The venue was just as elegant as the wedding with marble, white, and gold accents, which also made it a dream to photograph. The ceremony was held in the upstairs in front of an ornate and oversized fireplace alongside beautiful ombre pink florals. After the ceremony, guests were welcomed into a reception dripping in over the top gorgeous florals at each table by Flora & Eventi.

The handsome couple spent the evening dancing the night away to an 80’s rock band. And once the party came to a close, friends and loved ones wished the newlyweds good luck and farewell with a sparkler exit. And so the film came to a close with a little movie magic as Kaci and Brett drove off in a classic 1950’s Rolls Royce. It was such a joy to work with this amazing couple that reminded us that fairytales really do come true!

An E-Sesh That’s Cooler Than Cool and Red Hot

Know how we told you this engagement session was cooler than cool AND red hot? Well, we weren’t pulling your leg on that one, because this darling duo with Courtney Leigh Photography behind the lens pulled off an e-sesh like no other. It’s downtown cool coupled with uptown glam and it has completely won our hearts over, and we have a feeling this gallery sitting in The Vault will do the same for you.

From Courtney Leigh PhotographyKristen and Eric are such a joyful couple and they’ve got serious style too! They are planning a gorgeous downtown Houston wedding at Hotel ZaZa in March of 2017, so they wanted to incorporate that same city chic vibe into their engagement session! They chose the urban streets of downtown Houston and Rice University campus as their locations for the session and it fit seamlessly with their classy taste! Kristen has a stunning beauty about her and the pop of red on her is just beautiful captured on film! These two have such an infectious joy about them and they were so much fun to photograph!

This Twist on the First Look Will Bring You Happy Tears

How we feel about this pretty Houston wedding wedding can be summed up in this one photo. Before the ceremony, the beautiful Bride and her handsome Groom prayed together without seeing one another, and as ALLEEJ said, “it was one of the most moving, heart-felt, joy-filled moments I’ve ever had the pleasure to witness and capture.” See each and every heartwarming moment (including a video from Wedding Fanatics) in The Vault!

From ALLEE J….I am overjoyed to share Kaitlyn and Josh Pettitte’s Summer wedding with you! Kaitlyn + Josh are some of the most stunning people I know, from the outside & within. These two have hearts of gold, and their love for each other is so obvious and pure. There was so much about this wedding day that made this easily one of the most special and memorable wedding’s I’ve ever had the privilege to photograph.

The couple chose Ashton Gardens West, the newest AG venue in Houston. The charm of a traditional chapel was the landscape of their ceremony, and a beautiful ballroom was decorated and prepared for the couple to celebrate with family and friends. Kaitlyn wanted very simple elements that were classic, timeless, and elegant, mixed with beautiful, romantic florals from Bramble and Bee that added whimsy and youth. She accomplished this by keeping the ceremony very simple, only decorating with lush florals, candle lighting, and a blooming cross as the focal point. The reception was filled with ivory linen tables, lush florals in the center, and a personal “Thank you” card from the couple at every guests seat.

Kaitlyn kept it classic, having her bridesmaids wear beautiful pink chiffon dresses, and the groomsmen wore gray suits & ties. The groom sported his brand new watch that Kaitlyn gave to him as a wedding day gift, and wore a full suit to separate himself from the groomsmen.

Josh & Kaitlyn are very sentimental people, and wanted to stick to the traditions of a wedding day. The couple prayed together before the ceremony without seeing one another, and it was one of the most moving, heart-felt, joy-filled moments I’ve ever had the pleasure to witness and capture. The love that these two share is so deep, and is filled with redemption and gratitude. For them, this day was a picture of the Lord’s faithfulness to them, and the proof that he hear’s our prayers, know’s our hearts, and give’s us good and precious gifts.

For this couple, their family is of the upmost importance to them. Kaitlyn and Josh’s families have become great friends since the moment the couple were engaged to be married. Family played a big role throughout the day, and during the ceremony the Vinson & Pettitte family came together as one unit to pray for Kaitlyn and Josh’s union in marriage. Throughout the day there was a spirit of gratitude and joy that exuded from both families.

The most memorable moment from the wedding day was when the ceremony began. The Chapel was filled with beautiful natural light, the song “Holy Spirit” played as family and friends walked down the isle. The anticipation grew for the groom to lay his eyes on his bride for the first time that day. When the doors opened, and as Kaitlyn walked towards Josh overwhelming joy overtook Josh and it blessed all of our hearts to witness. His genuine reaction to Kaitlyn was so vulnerable and unashamed. It moved all in attendance, and Kaitlyn has shared that the way he looked at her in that moment was something she would cherish forever, and never forget.

The Pettitte + Vinson wedding day was one in a million. A fairytale of sorts, filled with the most beautiful details, lovely souls, and talented vendor’s who brought Kaitlyn’s dream wedding to life.
