Davis- Holtz Wedding

This past weekend we spent the day with Veronica and Mike. Veronica is a meteorologist with NOAA and Mike is in the US Air Force, what a pair! We had a great day. I started at the downtown Hyatt documenting the ladies getting ready for the day with hair and make up. The ladies made Veronica feel right at home and there were absolutely no pre-wedding jitters! Everything went according to plan! The bridesmaids wore dark purple gowns while Veronica chose a stunning strapless Maggie Soterro with a mermaid fit and the perfect amount of embellishments and lace. Everyone looked awesome which matched the groomsmen's uniforms, all of which were in the Air Force with Mike.
After separate photo sessions with photographer Tim Davis, the couple headed to the ballroom for the ceremony. Family and friends came to town from all over the US to witness their vows and it was a full house with about 150 guests in attendance. The grooms Uncle presided over the ceremony and was a very personal touch. Two special readings were included in the ceremony, one of which I especially enjoyed from Dr. Seuss. I love this couple!
Without any hesitation, the vows were exchanged and the couple was soon announced as husband and wife with the groomsmen leaving ahead of the couple. They re-entered the ballroom as the Honor Guard with swords raised above the couple as they left. Of course, they had to be trapped for the traditional kiss and swatting of the bride's backside with a sword as they left!
A cocktail hour followed while the wedding party braved the heat and humidity for photos and then entered the reception hall with one of the best wedding party intros I've seen in some time. As the Black Eyed Peas "I've got a Feelin" played in the background, each couple came in dancing of course followed by the lucky couple. They all finished the song dancing wildly on the dance floor to start the party!
All the usual traditions followed, first dance, parents dances, cutting of cake, toasts, and of course boquet and garter toss. It was one heck of a party, one I cannot compare to in quite some time- everyone was having the time of their lives.
The couple will be spending their honeymoon in Hawaii, you lucky dogs! :) We wish them every happiness in their new life in Texas, you both are the best and we enjoyed spending the day with you and getting to know you immensely! Thank you for having us!

Check out all the fun everyone had below- I told ya they were a cool couple! :) (And thanks to Tim Davis for letting us poke a little fun at the "Paparazzi", too!
