At our first meeting with Jeanne and Kevin, Kinsey (our little girl) was only a few months old! We had Jeanne and Kevin over to our house to get to know each other over cookies. Because, duh! ; )
We always love having our clients over before booking because it’s so important to make sure we are a good fit. Spending over 8 hours together on the wedding day is a big deal and we want to make sure they like us. ; )
Kinsey just bounced in her bouncer while we chatted and ate all the chocolate chip cookies. We chatted, heard their sweet love story and showed them albums. But I’m pretty sure Kinsey’s sweet smiling face is why Jeanne and Kevin truly picked us as their photographers! Ha!
Either way, we are so thrilled Jeanne and Kevin chose us to photograph their incredibly special wedding day at the Bell Tower on 34th! They are truly one of the most kind, genuine couples we’ve ever had the honor of photographing! Seriously, we want to be BFFs with them for life!
Not to mention, their wedding was STUNNING and filled with all my favorite things! From FRIENDS quotes (my true love language) in the maid of honor speech to Berry Chantilly Cake from Whole Foods, I was in heaven! With gorgeous soft blue accents throughout the day, it was the perfect spring wedding for this Tuscan style wedding venue.
When planning a wedding in Houston, you really have so many choices for wedding venues. The classic romantic ambiance of the Bell Tower on 34th made it an easy choice for Jeanne, a truly classy gal, for their Houston wedding.
We always like to ask our brides what they learned so they can share the latest bridal knowledge with future #cottoncouplesinlove! So here are some bridal babe tips from Jeanne herself!
We always love working with the Hey Lovely hair and makeup team! The girls looked FAB!
“I chose my dress because I always wanted sleeves and some sort of lace. I fell in love with my Rosa Clara dress because of the bow sash. It was tied in a similar way that the traditional Korean dress (hanbok) has in the front and wanted to incorporate a nod to my family’s heritage.”
“Our flowers were classic as well and had hints of thistle which is the Scottish flower. Kevin is half Scottish so also a nod to his heritage. ” – Jeanne
There is nothing better than seeing the excitement on your best friend’s faces when you are in full bride mode! Such a special moment!
Jeanne might be the happiest bride yet! Look at that sweet smile!! SO gorgeous!
Kevin and Jeanne chose to do a “first look” so they could have a private moment together before the ceremony. We always love “first looks” and theirs did not disappoint!
“What I loved most about our wedding was our first look, ceremony, flowers, band, and of course our wonderful photographers! Beside our venue, booking cotton was the first vendor I booked because I fell in love with the beautiful work that I wanted to capture my wedding. The best investment I’ve made!!” – Jeanne
I couldn’t get over how good all these gorgeous girls looked in this soft blue!
We always love the Bell Tower on 34th weddings! But there is something so special about the water wall ceremony! It’s just so gorgeous and luscious!
I even got to dance a little bit with Jeanne’s sweet mom!
“Kevin was in charge of the band and he chose Password because they’re known to be fun and interactive with the crowd. My favorite part of the wedding (besides the first look and ceremony) was Kevin belting out on the stage!” – Jeanne
“Michelle and Kellan, y’ all already mean so much to us! The professionalism, kindness, and enthusiasm you showed us throughout the engagement as well as on the day of our wedding were so incredibly above and beyond what we thought our photographers would bring. We love you two so much and we are so lucky to have had you capture our wedding. Thank you for everything y’ all did both noticed and unnoticed!” – Jeanne
My heart! Jeanne and Kevin, we love you guys too!!!! Thank you for allowing us to have a front row seat to this monumental day in your relationship. We are so happy for you guys and are here for you every step of the way through your marriage! Can’t wait to be there and photograph all the incredible phases of your life together!
