Sarah and Winston's Romantic Traditional Wedding at Balmorhea Events
We loved photographing Sarah and Winston’s beautiful traditional wedding at Balmorhea Events in Magnolia, Texas. Magnolia is located northwest of Houston, and has several great wedding venues. Balmorhea Events has a large property with a pond, grassy field, and lots of big beautiful trees. We had a chance to check out the venue during Sarah’s bridal session a few months before. Sarah is a photographer herself, and photography was a very important part of the wedding day! Sarah had a sweet first look with her dad, and shared a heartfelt prayer with Winston before the ceremony.
Wedding Ceremony at Balmorhea Events
The weather was sunny during Sarah and Winston’s wedding. They had a flower arrangement decorating the cross at the front of their ceremony site, and the pond was the perfect backdrop behind them. Sarah wore a beautiful strapless trumpet wedding dress, a romantic low updo, and jewelry from Kendra Scott. Winston wore a dark grey suit with a blue vest and tie. The bridesmaids wore steel blue dresses, and the groomsmen wore light grey suits with blue ties. The florals included white peonies, light dusty pink english roses, blue thistle, dusty miller, and eucalyptus leaves.
Reception at Balmorhea Events
The reception area was decorated with gorgeous floral arrangements and candles. Guests enjoyed dinner from Cafe Natalie, a gorgeous geometric cake from Who Made the Cake, and macarons from Macaron by Patisse. Sarah and Winston had their favorite band, Blue Water Highway, perform during the reception. Guests had fun using the animated GIF photobooth during the open dancing. At the end of the night, Sarah and Winston had a private last dance while guests lined up outside. For the grand exit, they used biodegradable confetti that looked like magical snow!
