Memorial Student Center
Texas A&M University
Wedding Reception Venue
We just got our 4 children off to their perspective schools today. We have one child in elementary, one in intermediate, one in high school, and one starting college! After our ‘boo-hoo brunch’, it was time to get back to work. It’s hard not to think about how fast the kids are growing!
It probably seems like just yesterday that my clients, Katherine and Brad, were in high school. They actually met one another when they were a freshman and a sophomore! They’ve been together ever since! Brad proposed to Katherine after a romantic dinner. He took her to one of their favorite parks where they frequently took walks together. About halfway through their romantic stroll, Brad said that he had a question for her. Then he got down on one knee! It was a really sweet and private moment.
Katherine and Brad were married in the beautiful church that Brad grew up in. It made the wedding ceremony extra special to them. They both graduated from Texas A&M and were excited to include this part of their lives by having their wedding reception at the recently remodeled Memorial Student Center. It was the perfect location for the reception. It looks amazing! They also loved the dressing rooms, elegant décor, the landscaping and the great service for the 175 wedding guests.
Katherine looked beautiful in her gown by Bill Levkoff; Kalea. The floral designer was Post Oak Florist, and the cakes were made by Cakes by Blondie.
As Katherine saw Brad for the first time on their wedding day, she was really happy and nervous at the same time. “While I was walking down the aisle, at some points I was fighting back tears and had to look for just a moment at my brother and sister, who were both in the wedding party, so I wouldn’t cry.” Brad was absolutely speechless at how amazing Katherine looked! He was also “proud and happy that she was going to marry me”.
The most emotional moment for Katherine during the ceremony was when her dad gave her away. “My whole family is very close so this moment was really meaningful and emotional for me.” Brad got emotional right before he entered the sanctuary and when he saw Katherine start walking down the aisle!
“Being in the midst of all the people we love the most at our wedding reception was the most fun! We loved seeing everyone having a great time and really enjoying themselves.”
The newlyweds set off for their honeymoon in Ocho Rios, Jamaica. “We loved it!”
Take note of this wonderful couple’s advice for brides and grooms to be: This is supposed to be fun so let it! Don’t get caught up in making everything perfect because no one will remember the little things anyway.”
Thank you so much for sharing your special day with us and letting SGI Photography be a part of it!
Blessings on your married life, Katherine and Brad!
