St.Paul’s Methodist Church and Majestic Metro Houston Wedding photographer.
Michelle and Jason’s wedding stands out as being a really fun one to photograph! They are simply a fun couple, which reflected in their wedding planning and choice of a wedding venue! Historic Downtown Houston was the hot spot for their big event. The ceremony was held at the incredibly beautiful St. Paul’s Methodist Church on Main Street. Picture-perfect arches and stained glass windows, with a pipe-organ to top it off! Now, about that wedding reception! The vintage Majestic Metro Theater was so cool! Originally built in 1926, restored and reopened in 1990, The Majestic Metro is a unique experience for fun events!
What Michelle and Jason were looking for, both St. Paul’s Methodist Church and Majestic Metro had it all! “I wanted a church that was elegant, provided a choir and close in proximity to my reception venue. St. Paul’s Methodist church fit my desires perfectly. I wanted a reception venue that had character and provided an environment to party. The Majestic Metro was the perfect place!” Imagine stepping back into Hollywood glamour and dancing as newlyweds in the spotlight with the silver screen as your backdrop ~ quite a romantic scene. This place really is for the fun, romantic types! Michelle and Jason definitely fit that description!
Take, for example, Jason’s proposal. “Jason planned a fairy tale proposal. He flew to Chicago to surprise my family and me while on a family vacation. In front of a large tourist crowd waiting to board a boat on The Navy Pier, Jason got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. He had hired a photographer to capture the moment. The proposal was the most wonderful surprise I have ever received!” Would you believe these two met through Eharmony? It seems like they’ve known each other for years!
As they saw each other for the first time on their wedding day at St. Paul’s, they both felt “overwhelming joy”!!! Michelle looked stunningly beautiful in a strapless Pronovias gown. The top of the gown was lined in feathers and the bottom was made of layered organza.
They said their vows before God and 300 witnesses. “Listening to the choir and organ play during our ceremony was angelic. Being announced as husband and wife for the first time in front of a crowd of supportive family and friends was priceless.”
Their fun wedding reception at the Majestic Metro included a four tiered bridal cake with layers of strawberry cake and white cake with strawberry filling. The groom’s cake was artistically constructed into two suitcases with a camera resting on the top with out-flowing film containing photos of the couple, symbolizing the groom’s love for photography and travel.

Jason and Michelle sat at the sweetheart table as husband and wife, overlooking our guests while they ate. “It was a wonderful time for us to enjoy each other!” Another special moment was when Michelle’s childhood friend sang the “father-daughter” song with her husband! So, where did the fun newlywed couple go on their honeymoon? Lisbon, Maldives, and Dubai!
And now, for the advice you’ve all been waiting for from our fun-loving bride & groom: Planning a wedding can be very stressful and overwhelming but it is worth having the event!
So, don’t allow the difficulties of planning your dream wedding steal the FUN of it! We wish you all the best, from SGI Photography.
