Stephen bought Jennifer a pearl necklace three years prior in Hong Kong knowing that he would be giving them to her on their wedding day. WOW. Talk about an awesome romantic. Stephen is an INCREDIBLE man, so devoted to his beautiful Jennifer. And Jennifer…well she just lights up a room. Her smile is contagious and everyone around her is happy just being in her presence.
The wedding day was no different for the two of them. Not one person wanted to be anywhere else than watching these two get married.
Claire, Joe and I had an amazing evening hanging out and partying with these two and their awesome friends and families. Top notch.
Every girl in the room was all smiles, just like Jennifer as the sweet bride got ready. Stephen and his boys swam at his parent’s house, enjoying some fun in the sun before tux-ing it up and all looking like it was no big deal.
It was a beautiful wedding party.
A perfectly smooth night.
And an amazing bride and groom that we could not be more excited to see now as husband and wife.

DIY elements: My mom and I found all of the vases that were on the tables at Ouisie’s from resale shops in Houston. I made the programs for the ceremony, with Stephen’s help on the formatting. I picked out personalized fabric for the bridesmaid apron gifts and had them made, and also designed their earrings at a bead store in Austin.
