Wedding Photographers in Houston

Houston wedding photographer, Michael Carr Photography, recently photographed Becca & Christian’s wedding and reception. The ceremony was held at St. Luke’s Methodist Church, and their reception was held at a private residence.

Originally the couple was to have their reception at the Omni. Well, this summer hurricane Harvey hit Houston and due to the Omni flooding, the couple had to decide on a new venue for their reception. Ann Whittington helped transform their ballroom reception into a stunning tent reception at a private residence. The reception became a one of a kind, unique ballroom. With the floral and décor talented team from Plants n Petals, the tent was adorned with marble walls, floral décor on the ceiling, chandeliers, and even a flower floor entryway to welcome guests. The guests enjoyed a seated dinner, and danced the night away with the fun band from Atlanta: Party on the Moon. The cakes were made by Susie’s Cakes. At the end of the evening, fireworks & guests sent the couple off for their honeymoon.

Houston Wedding Photographers

Houston Wedding Photographers, Michael Carr Photography, recently photographed this Rehearsal Dinner for a wonderful couple. We also photographed their wedding, which will be highlighted in a separate post. Their rehearsal dinner was held at The St. Regis Houston. Their rehearsal dinner theme was a Renaissance Union, and coordinated by Ann Whittington. This theme was carried through all the details and décor for their intimate rehearsal dinner. Guests were welcomed into the dinner with door greeters in Renaissance attire and dialect. They also had an incredible cake that looked like a castle, with a water mote surrounding the castle. Susie’s Cakes did a wonderful job with this cake, and it looked so real! In the cocktail area, guests could write well wishes to the couple on coins with the couples monogram, and toss the coins in a wishing well. A Renaissance quartet provided wonderful background music during the cocktail reception. The St. Regis ballroom was decorated with the same theme and pulled together with candles and beautiful florals by Plants n Petals.

Michael incorporated a mixture of natural light and on location lighting equipment to create her Bridal Portraits at The St. Anthony Hotel and also across the street at Travis Park Methodist Church. He captured a collection of full length, three quarter and seated poses of the bride so she and her family would have a variety of options for their portraits.
