Galveston Wedding Photographer
SGI Photography LOVES Galveston weddings! The historical, one-of-a-kind venues blend well with the atmosphere of Galveston Island. No two weddings are alike! The people, places and parties bring out the best in this wedding photographer! See for yourself in this article about Ashton Villa on Galveston Island, and the wedding of Cynthia and Jeffrey.
SGI Photography LOVES it when couples get off to the right start from the very beginning!
Cynthia and Jeffrey met at church and were best friends for a while before finally admitting they were both in love. Jeffrey finally asked Cynthia on a date! His subsequent proposal took them back to a hiking trail ~ the place where they had gone on their first date. After Jeffrey proposed, he took Cynthia to the highest roof in the city so they could see the night-time city lights. “He asked me to dance with him, with no one else around. It was magical!”
SGI Photography LOVES Ashton Villa! So did Cynthia and Jeffrey. “We loved Ashton Villa for the historic and elegant feel. Being surrounded by paintings and decorations from the 1800’s made us feel timeless, like our marriage and the joy we experienced there had no beginning and no end. It is located in Galveston, Texas and it is perfect because they have added a ballroom for dining and dancing, plus the entire house.” From a wedding photographer’s standpoint, Ashton Villa is a treasure-trove of classic and vintage portrait backdrops which help create stunning wedding photography.
SGI Photography LOVES to photograph the details! From the wedding gown to the flowers and cake, a wedding photographer should photograph the details you worked so hard to select for your special day.
They can be so sentimental, and a quality photograph can help preserve the memories of these items to enjoy and share with future generations. Cynthia’s wedding gown was chosen with her mother and grandmother in mind. “I chose an all-lace gown because my grandmother and my mother have always created beautiful lace tapestries, and I felt it was perfect with the vintage feel of the venue. I was lucky to find such a beautiful gown, and my grandmother made my lace jacket, which was perfect for the cold rainy weather on our special day.” The cake was made by her Uncle Armando, “who makes the best chocolate cake I have ever had. This was the first wedding cake he ever attempted, and it was the most beautiful gift I could have asked for.” For the flowers, she selected blush pink and white, with some greenery. “I have always loved simplicity, and I loved the tall glass centerpieces with the delicate flowers. My Aunt made all of them by herself. She also had never made wedding centerpieces.”
SGI Photography LOVES true love! As a wedding photography, it is imperative that the emotions and the ‘look of love’ on the bride and groom’s faces are captured. Cynthia and Jeffrey are truly in love. The sentiments were priceless. “When Cynthia first saw Jeffrey on their wedding day, she describes feeling a sense of calm and peace. “This means a great deal because the whole day is chaos. But when I finally saw him, I felt a quiet assurance mixed with the greatest excitement to start our journey as husband and wife.” When Jeffrey first saw Cynthia, he thought, “I made the right choice. That’s the most beautiful woman I have ever seen. I win.” The most emotional moment of the day for them, however, was when they spoke directly to each other during the ceremony. “Everyone else was there, but the words were meant for only us. I am pretty sure no one else knew what we were talking about anyway.”
SGI Photography LOVES wedding guests! There were 220 guests attending Cynthia and Jeffrey’s wedding celebration at Ashton Villa! They made the day unforgettable for this amazing couple. “ We most enjoyed seeing all of our most beloved friends and family looking so fancy and beautiful! They made our wedding day something we will never forget.”
SGI Photography LOVES Galveston! The history, the ocean, the beach, the Strand, the cuisine!
When a Bride and Groom are married in a Galveston Island venue, it only makes sense that they start their honeymoon in Galveston! That’s exactly what these newlyweds did! “We had two honeymoon destinations. The first one was right there in Galveston. We got to enjoy an ocean-view balcony honeymoon for a few days before our semester of classes started. Once school is out, we will be traveling to Italy, Austria and France to experience Europe for our first time, together.”
SGI Photography LOVES good advice! Check out this pearl of wisdom:
“Don’t worry about everyone else having fun, it’s your day and they are all so excited to celebrate with you! Just make sure YOU have fun, and that you have fun together every day for the rest of your life.”
