Bell Tower on 34th wedding photography
Young love is so sweet. Especially when you find your life-long love! Kristine and Garrett met in high school. She was only 15 and he was 17. By their wedding day, they had been together for 8 years! Prior to Garrett’s proposal, some wedding plans were already taking off!
Kristine had already picked out the perfect wedding venue ~ Bell Tower on 34th ~ and she even purchased her wedding dress! One lovely day, they went walking through a beautiful park in the Woodlands. Garrett playfully teased Kristine and asked how embarrassed she was to buy her wedding dress and not even be engaged yet. “By the time I turned around to answer him he was down on one knee and said “Let’s change that”. It was very sweet and romantic!”
Every client SGI Photography photographs at the Bell Tower on 34th wedding venue has been highly satisfied with their choice of venue! Kristine and her mom set out to search for a wedding venue with 3 or 4 places to visit on their list. Their first stop was the Bell Tower on 34th in Houston. They immediately fell in love with it. “The main reason I picked it is because I didn’t really need a whole lot of decor. It already had so much beauty in it even when nothing is in there. Also, the service was awesome! They definitely made me feel like a princess but they also catered to all of my guests. Everyone was complimenting on how amazing the service and staff was.”
The Big Day
The best part of my job is witnessing a bride and groom experience authentic joy & love on their wedding day. It was an honor to watch Kristine and Garrett enjoy true love & sheer happiness as they became one. “We were both so happy to see one another on our wedding day. He had the biggest smile on his face and I couldn’t stop laughing because I was so happy to finally marry my best friend.”
Special, unscripted moments of a wedding day become precious memories. Kristine shares one such touching moment for her and her parents, “The only real time I got emotional was when I gave my parents their gifts. I had handkerchiefs made for them and they were both embroidered with sweet messages from me. As soon as I saw my dad start crying, I did too. It was an awesome moment that I will always remember.”
The highlights of the reception for the new Mr. & Mrs. included dancing, the red carpet photo booth, and spending time with friends and family that they hadn’t seen in a long time.

Words of Wisdom
The Newlyweds had this advice to offer future brides & grooms, “Soak up every bit of the planning and the wedding day as much as possible. I didn’t believe anyone when they said that it would go by in the blink of an eye. But it does. Also, get the planning and all the details out of the way months before the wedding day. That was one of the smartest things I ever did. I never once stressed about anything, nor did I find anything go wrong on my wedding day.”
