Her mother’s wedding veil, pinned to her soft waves with a clip made from her grandmother’s jewelry: Shelley honored her family in this subtle way. Her father, a minister, helped to marry Shelley and Patrick in Patrick’s home church, with one of the most beautiful homilies I’ve ever heard in my time as a wedding photographer.
It was an overcast day, with patchy rain, the luckiest kind of wedding day :) The couple and their lovely friends and family enjoyed homemade cookies (baked by the bride’s mother) and fancy paella (made by the Kitchen at Dunlavy) in the gorgeous, multi-chandeliered, glass-enclosed space overlooking Buffalo Bayou.
Congratulations to this sweet couple! If you are family or friends of Shelley and Patrick, you can view their gallery and order prints here.
