Amanda + Allen | Dunlavy Wedding

The Dunlavy has become one of my favorite wedding venues in Houston, with the beautiful wide-open space accentuated by windows overlooking the water, and hanging chandeliers complemented with candles lighting up the room in the evening. Truly, it is the perfect place for an intimate wedding.

Weather can really set the tone of the day. Ideally, people want clear skies and a warm sunny day. However, rain can transform it into a moody, romantic atmosphere. There is a coziness on a rainy wedding day. Fortunately for me, Amanda and Allen embraced the blustery conditions, which created timeless images. They were focused on spending their day with their loved ones, and the weather changed none of that.

They were married in a small ceremony on the covered terrace overlooking Buffalo Bayou and Lost Lake, surrounded by the greenery and soft pink and white floral arch stylings of Dream Bouquet. After their emotional ceremony, Amanda and Allen escaped for a moment to take some portraits among the surrounding park before it started sprinkling on us. They enjoyed the quiet moments alone while overlooking the cityscape.

These two were so connected with each other, stealing intimate glances at each other. They spent the day with lots of laughter with their loved ones and danced the night away.
