Cortney and Shannon – A Lovely Wedding at the American Visionary Art Museum

December 1, 2008

Cortney and Shannon were married on October 4, 2008.

 

We had photographed the wedding of Cortney’s sister, Lindsay, last New Years Eve. Up until this most recent wedding, that New Years wedding was considered by many to be ‘THE” event of the year. Courtney and Lindsay’s parents, as well as both sisters were so delighted with our performance and images that they told us we would be the photographers for Cortney’s event as well. Though enormously flattered to be ‘carte blanched’ this event, it is not unusual that this occurs. The bridal party, families and guests realize what an enjoyable, upbeat and vastly different kind of experience it is to have had us create images. We get many of our referrals from bridesmaids, groomsmen and guests who’ve seen us work and the images that we produce.

 

The flowers below are yet another example of Jeanie’s (owner of Blue Sage Floral Design) sense of play and creativity.

Cortney, who is Chief Resident at one of our major medical institutions, was not Dr. Cortney on her wedding day, but Bride- Beautiful Cortney

Corpus Christi is, as always, a supremely lovely place for a wedding ceremony.

Absolutely unique choices in lighting, decor, table settings, and floral arrangements set Cortney’s wedding reception apart from the usual. Elizabeth Bailey Weddings were the wedding planners, Perkin’s Productions created the lighting and graphics, Table Toppers provided the linens and The Pleasure of Your Company created the invitations, table place cards and menus.

The American Visionary Arts Museum (aka: AVAM) is like no other place for a wedding reception.

The Brass Elephant, with Brian Boston himself representing them, provided beautifully prepared, artfully presented, gourmet fare that everyone in attendance marveled about. Style does matter.

Sound Connection had everyone on their feet and dancing until the very end.

Sugar Bakers designed a classic and elegant cake that was simply scrumptious ( I may possibly  have had a piece).
