The historic, octagonal, and very beautiful Garten Verein in Galveston, TX was the perfect place for Charlie & Esmeralda’s wedding. When we first met, we immediately clicked over their colorful, whimsical and romantic wedding plans. I also bonded with them because, frankly, their sense of humor and wonderful disposition is just a joy to be around.

Charlie & Esmeralda included a Disney theme in their wedding and welcomed family and friends from near and far on one of the most perfect of wedding days. Their ceremony took place at dusk, which made for amazing, dramatic lighting. And the venue was also perfectly lit by the folks at LG Entertainment to coordinate with their fun wedding colors.

Here are some of my favorite photos of the day.

As if this place wasn’t gorgeous enough, the weather was just absolutely perfect! Blue skies were abound, which made for the perfect framing of this beautiful, historic structure.

Esmeralda went for a vintage-glam look done by the highly talented Leah, owner of Your Beautiful Face. I absolutely loved the subtle waves in her hair that just framed her bone structure perfectly.  She is an absolute vision!

Charlie wore a stylish, tan suit that went perfectly with this beach-side location. His tulip boutonniere finished off this polished look. All floral pieces were created by the talented folks at Striking Stems.

I always borrow Hillary Clinton’s quote and apply it to weddings…it really does “take a village” to pull off such an important event. All details were expertly coordinated for this wedding by Jane and the super-professional ladies from The Total Wedding Experience. From planning, to coordinating, to set-up and everything in between, these ladies did an amazing job! Here’s a close up of some of the details they helped put together on wedding day.

Right before the ceremony, I caught a couple of shots of the ring bearer. His “cheese” grin is the best one I’ve seen in a while!

As the sun set over the gazebo, Charlie & Esmeralda shared their vows to become husband and wife…

This is a close up as Charlie thanks the Heavens. They were both so very excited and full of emotion.  This is why I love weddings so much!

As I mentioned, these two are about the most fun couple…they even stopped to do a self portrait at the end of the ceremony! I’m still waiting to see that on your FB profile, guys!! ;) Here’s how it looked from my end.
