The Perfect Elopement - Just the Two of Us at Las Velas, Houston Texas
An intimate elopement with just the bride & groom, taking place at Las Velas. Brides of Houston, it can be done. This bride organized everything herself within the same week. She wanted the day to feel extraordinary, even if it was low key. This wedding venue in Houston has a European feel, with the courtyard at the front making you feel like you've just arrive in Tuscany!
She found her perfect dress, having it tailored to fit, in lightning record time. As well as organizing the makeup artist, florist, venue and photographer. As the photographer, I also unexpectedly became her ‘best friend, sister and mother’ (the words from the bride) helping her get into her dress, shoes, placing the veil in her hair and capturing their wedding story. An emotional event, where their happiness filled an entire room. The love for one another was undeniable. After the ceremony the couple ran off to catch a cruise to the Bahamas. The perfect elopement, don’t you think!
There’s nothing more spontaneous and romantic than running off to exchange vows of commitment for one another. And in turn, the exchange of rings. A symbol so round and simple - “The circle with no beginning, for love that has no end.”
Whether it’s a wedding with many people gathered together or an intimate one, it’s all the same. The overwhelming sense of love and happiness is felt regardless of the size of the celebration. To find that special person you want to share a life and grow old with is simply rare. The day easily becomes one of the happiest days of any couples lives.
