Bell Tower on 34th Houston Wedding Photographers
One of the joys of a Houston Wedding Photographer is getting to meet so many wonderful people from all over the Greater Houston area and beyond. Every couple is unique and I find it fascinating to hear their stories. My recent clients, Blair and Matt, celebrated their wedding day at The Bell Tower on 34th. This wedding venue happens to be one of my personal favorites in Houston. I’m so glad Blair and Matt felt the same way about The Bell Tower that I do! It helped make their wedding portraits turn out even more spectacular! I really enjoyed being their wedding photographer. I’m getting ahead of myself, though. First let me back up and tell you how they got to their special day!
Blair and Matt met in 2007 during their very first weekend in college at the “greatest university ever” [their quote], Texas Tech. They quickly became friends after meeting at Matt’s fraternity house. They never dated, though until after graduating from college and they were both living in Houston.
Blair had a few requirements for the proposal that Matt was aware of:
- Ask my mom for permission
- Make sure my nails were done
- I wanted it to happen in a gazebo.
- I wanted our dog to be there.
- I wanted it to be a surprise.
- And I wanted it photographed.
Matt made all of those things happen! He proposed on August 19, 2014
in a gazebo in the Briar Grove Park neighborhood. The dog was there, my nails were polished and it was all photographed.
When it came to choosing their wedding venue, Blair knew right away from seeing pictures of The Bell Tower on 34th that she just had to get married there! Easily one of the most dreamy, romantic settings for a wedding in Houston, Texas, The Bell Tower on 34th will take your breath away. “It is just so beautiful! The day after we got engaged, I called and made an appointment to view The Bell Tower and a week later our wedding was booked.” They loved everything about The Bell Tower, and are certain that they could not have picked a better wedding venue.
That’s quite a compliment, if I do say so myself!

The Big Day
Seeing Matt for the first time on their wedding day, Blair describes feeling more in love than she had ever felt before! “It was like coming home.”
There were many touching moments, even moving Matt to tears.
People came from all over the world to attend their wedding. Blair and Matt really enjoyed dancing and spending time with so many friends and family members.
The newlyweds took a cruise out of Galveston on the Carnival Magic.
The ports included Montego Bay, Jamaica, Grand Cayman and Cozumel, Mexico.
This wise Mr. & Mrs. have plenty of excellent advice to offer future brides and grooms: Plan ahead! Even if you think it is too far in advance, do it anyway. You do not want anything to sneak up on you at the last minute. Also, if you want something to happen on your wedding day that you have planned for months, find someone to make it happen for you. My person was my wedding coordinator, Angie. Also, don’t forget to have fun!
