Just a few days before the wedding, Texas was in the dark and covered in snow but count on Issam + Natalia's union to bring back the warm and sunnier days we're used to. Their elegance, their charm, their strong family bonds, and of course their dancing skills made the perfect combination for an unforgettable event.
We spent the morning of the wedding day in their homes where they prepared for the big day. While the photos didn't fit into the blog, there were traditional celebrations even before heading to St. George Orthodox Christian Church where they'd become husband and wife. The aisle was filled with flowers and I felt the moment Natalia walked up the aisle play out like the scene of a movie. The doors opened and I could almost hear everyone hold their breath as Natalia slowly made her way to the altar.
After the ceremony, we turned to The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston where we took a few portraits before their grand entrance. The reception was filled with special dances, heartfelt and hilarious toasts, a cake that came down from the ceiling and pure fun! One of the things I love about Issam + Natalia is how loved they are by their friends! Every single person was ecstatic to celebrate with them, myself included! The party officially went on until midnight, but I doubt the celebration ended there.
To the new Mr + Mrs, It has been such an honor being part of your entire wedding journey from your proposal to your wedding day! You are two of the most kind and genuine individuals I've had the pleasure of meeting and I wish you all the best as you continue this exciting journey as husband and wife!
Leave these two some love below. If they get to 25 comments, they'll get a grand surprise!
