Dunlavy, Houston TX Wedding | Carson + Katy

Carson and Katy’s The Dunlavy Houston, TX wedding was such a magical event!! And why do I say magical? Because their wedding had a delightful Harry Potter theme weaved throughout it! Do you remember when I blogged about their marriage proposal a bit ago? Well these amazing ladies are now married!!

Their wedding day was the day before New Year’s Eve, and although it was raining, it didn’t stop them from having the best time! As well, there is an old wives tale that says rain on your wedding day is good luck. As someone who had rain on their wedding day, I am going to firmly believe this tale!

Getting Ready

Carson + Katy got ready at Hotel Zaza. They got a suite with two bedrooms, so each of them could get in their gowns without the other seeing them. It was a wonderful setup, as the middle area allowed the wedding party to hang out, for hair and makeup to happen, and everyone to have fun! Carson brought the golden snitch ring box she made, and I brought a wand or two! It made for some amazing detail pictures of the rings and invitations. Both women honored their family in the jewelry they wore–Katy wearing a pearl calla lily necklace passed down from her grandmother, and Carson a silver ring that was her grandmother’s. They were perfect for each bride.

They did their family portraits at the hotel as well as signing the ketubah. The signing was a special moment, and those closest to the couple were in the room when it was signed. I might have teared up with a few of their bridesmaids…and obviously hid behind my camera! As everyone left to go to the ceremony/reception site, they went by a trolley that was specifically chosen as it resembled Hogwarts Express. My heart was basically exploding over these perfect touches!

So if you are getting married in a fun location and want to bring your photographer with you, then here are some great tips on what to expect when bringing them with on your destination wedding.dominican republic photographer (more…)
