Remember the dinosaur loving couple I blogged about a few months ago? Well, these two lovely people are married now!! Erin and Carter truly had the most dino-licious wedding ever! Their wedding was at Rice University, where their engagement photos were taken. The details in this wedding were top notch but best of all they were surrounded by those they love best. It was an awesome day to be a Rice University wedding photographer, I tell ya!

The Dino Deets

Erin and Carter did some badass things to incorporate their theme into their wedding. When you look through the photos, you will see that there were dinosaurs on the invitations, as well as dino-cufflinks! Erin designed the invitations herself, and you would never know because they look so good. Erin also decided to have a tropical feel to the flowers, a la Jurassic Park. Their reception space was decorated to perfection with balloons that spelled DINOMITE on the dance floor. It was the perfect backdrop for the dancing photos, and was just a lot of fun! Lastly, the cakes were topped with a groom and bride dinosaur, and when I saw it I laughed. It was perfect!! A surprise happened though, as people brought dinosaur costumes and blow up dinosaurs as they partied on the dance floor! It was seriously the best best time!

I will say that the catering for the wedding was some of the best BBQ I have had while living in Houston! So much so, that I forced my husband to go there after the wedding to try it! As well, the cakes by Wink by Erica were so dang delicious. Not going to lie, my second photographer and I tried all the flavors and split the slices between us to try them all. I think the whisky chocolate flavor was my favorite! I mean, y’all know I am foodie, so of course I am going to brag about their food if I adore it!
