Jordan & Nathan | Brewery Wedding

karbach brewery wedding

Jordan and Nate’s wedding was like a warm hug: on a sunny March day in Houston, 100 of their friends and family joined them at Karbach Brewery to celebrate their relationship. Most of the celebration was handmade or heirloom: Jordan’s ring was a family ring, her mother made the succulent centerpieces, and Jordan (a talented artist) drew shapes pertaining to her and Nate’s relationship for a poster that guests could color in.

It was a relaxed, happy celebration without much tradition besides an aisle, vows, and a kiss! The couple had gourmet donuts instead of cake, and spent most of their time visiting with all of their well-wishers. It was pretty much perfect.

Shelley & Patrick | The Dunlavy Wedding | Houston

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.

Bruce & Jose | Austin Engagement Session

gay engagement session

Jose had flown in from LA and wanted the entire Austin experience. Bruce took him to Jo’s for coffee and breakfast tacos, then we went to the lakeside and checked out the skyline. We finished the session at the Texas Capitol with Texas Forever shirts during a veteran’s rally — a fitting end, they said, because both men are in the service.

Throughout the session, we were slowed down by joggers on the hike & bike trail who wanted to high-five and congratulate the couple on their engagement. Joggers stopped to compliment Bruce and Jose on their matching Love Conquers Hate t-shirts and many more gave thumbs-up. This is the Texas I know: vibrant, happy, tolerant, and proud.
