Angela and Evan had an intimate wedding at the Corpus Christi Museum of Science and History. This was my first Corpus Museum of Science and History wedding and it was really fun to be in such a cool museum for a special event. The bride got ready with her bridesmaids in a hidden room with a gorgeous chandelier and then walked just a few steps to get to the Dome Room. There are beautiful paintings hung on the walls and they made a nice backdrop for the couples’ first look. The ceremony also took place in the Dome Room in front of about 75 guests, all of whom had traveled to Corpus Christi for the occasion. After the wedding the guests moved to the American Bank Center for the reception. The room overlooked the bay and was beautifully decorated by Razzle Dazzle. The entertainment was a great band called Gun Powder Soup out of San Antonio. They did a wonderful job playing songs everyone knew and keeping everyone on the dance floor! (Some guests actually played the cow bell and the tambourine!) At the end of the night I noticed the bride and groom standing on the balcony and was able to capture a great photo of them in front of the Harbor Bridge before the party ended.
I was initially contacted by the groom’s sister Jaclyn. She is a photographer based out of Vermont and she handled most of the pre-wedding communication. It was nice to talk to someone who is also so familiar with how weddings flow. On the day of the wedding she offered to do a little 2nd shooting for me. She took photos of the groomsmen before the ceremony, shot the wedding from her seat in the front row and was able to do some really creative things with the first dance! When you have a small wedding it is possible for me to do it without a second shooter but this occasion reminded me how nice it is to have another set of eyes (or lenses) helping out!
