Taylor and Adam's Fun, Formal, Classy Wedding in Houston
Taylor and Adam were such a fun, laid back couple, and we loved photographing their traditional wedding ceremony at St. Paul’s Methodist Church and formal wedding reception at The Houstonian Hotel. The day started out at The Houstonian, where Taylor and Adam got ready separately with their wedding parties.
First Look at The Houstonian
Taylor and Adam had their first look outside the Houstonian before their ceremony. Adam had the sweetest reaction to seeing Taylor for the first time. The first look was extra special, because we were also able to photograph the bridesmaids’ and moms’ reactions in the background. After the portraits we headed over to St. Paul’s UMC for the ceremony!
Traditional Wedding Ceremony at St. Paul’s United Methodist Church
St. Paul’s is a beautiful, traditional, historic church in the Museum District of Houston. The gothic arches, intricate stained glass, wood carvings, pipe organ, and architectural acoustics are breathtaking. St. Paul’s is one of the most beautiful churches in Houston. Most older churches have strict rules when it comes to wedding photography, so that is an important consideration when planning your wedding. At the end of the ceremony, Taylor’s mom planned for a surprise bagpipe performance, which all of the guests loved!
Formal Wedding Reception at The Houstonian Hotel
After the ceremony, everyone headed back over to The Houstonian for the reception in the Grand Ballroom. They had a live band that kept the party going all night. Taylor and Adam were so fun to photograph on the dance floor. They were truly having the best time celebrating with their friends and family.
For the wedding send-off, guests threw colorful pom poms in the air, while the band played behind them. One of my favorite photos ended up being at the very end when Adam picked up Taylor and carried her off. They just looked so happy and I’m glad we were able to capture that special moment between them.
