The First Dance - Plaza Club at One Shell, Downtown Houston

Brooke & Nathan’s wedding reception was held at the Plaza Club on the 49th floor of One Shell Plaza in downtown Houston, Texas. It is one of my favorite venues in the city because of the fabulous skyline view over Houston which is so gorgeous! The food is delicious, and the staff is impeccable. I really can not say enough good things about working with Jason and the staff there!

If you haven’t seen it already, be sure to check out Brooke & Nathan’s ceremony at Christ Church Cathedral in downtown Houston, Texas, and their engagement session in the Texas Hill Country.

All of the flowers at the wedding were so lovely, and tied in perfectly with the paper goods used for the wedding and with the wedding cake – such beautiful details! The purple candy bar with the “Love is Sweet” sign was visited throughout the night by all the guests and was a big hit!

After dinner, Brooke danced with her father, and Nathan joined in with his mother – and then they cut the cake!

After the cake, it was time for the toasts – and then it a lot of dancing!

Before the sparkler exit, people made sure to stop at the Candy Bar to fill a bag up of snacks to take home!

It was such a wonderful day – thank you again to Brooke & Nathan for letting me share it with you! It was such a joy being a part of the day and spending time with your family & friends!

Thank you again to Marc Brubaker for photographing the wedding with me!
