If you told me last year that I'd be photographing a wedding in a treehouse in downtown Houston, I'd probably have a hard time believing you. But I did indeed photograph an amazing wedding at "Treehouse" at The Grove in Houston, next to Discovery Green.
This wedding was on a sunny Sunday afternoon in October, with bright blue skies. Although autumn didn't seem to be happening in Houston (it was about 95 degrees), the beautiful floral arrangements in fall colors set the scene for this outdoor ceremony, with the skyline as a backdrop.
A couple of hours before the ceremony begin, I met Chaille and Michael for their first look (and my absolute favorite part of a wedding). The look on the groom's face as he sees his beautiful bride for the first time is the best! We chose a poolside location above the city for the first look, since that was where the couple first met. It was the perfect setting for portraits with all of the greenery and incredible landscaping.
Stunning! Isn't this dress fabulous??
After portraits, we headed to The Grove for the ceremony. The grandchildren of the bride kept me entertained throughout the day. I think they had more fun than anybody!
As the sun slowly began its decent, the ceremony on the rooftop commenced.
With a few prayers, good laughs, rings and "I Do," Chaille and Michael began their "happily ever after."
And following the ceremony, the new Mr. and Mrs. celebrated with close family and friends.
Here's to many more years of laughter and love! Congrats Michael and Chaille!
