Cristina & John’s Romerican Wedding

From the couple:

John and I met 5 years ago, November 2012. At the time I was going to college in Richmond, VA but my parents were living in Texas. I was home on thanksgiving break for a total of 3 days and John and I met during that visit home. We actually met while temporarily working at Victoria’s Secret, were folding yoga pants in the stock room, ha!! I Facebook creeped John the night we met, exchanged phone numbers via Facebook and the rest is history….

John proposed 4 years later on Christmas Eve surrounded by our parents, his grandmother, sister and nephew. He was home on a 2 week leave from the Marine Corps training pipeline which lasted a total of 8 months.

Our wedding was on August 26, 2017 at the Piazza in the Village in Colleyville, TX. This was the first venue we ever visited and immediately fell in love with the it upon entering the Chapel. At Last by Etta James was playing and I got tears in my eyes. After our tour at the Piazza they rang the wedding bells from the venue’s tower and knew in that moment that we had to get married there! Our wedding incorporated a few Romanian traditions, as my side of the family including myself is from Romania!

We loved our #bigfatromericanwedding !!

Christina & Mark’s wedding at Piazza in the Village

Christina & Mark were married on Sunday, June 11, 2017 at the gorgeous venue Piazza in the Village.

This is both of their second marriages so it was small and simple yet elegant. I absolutely loved everything about this wedding from the ceremony to the reception, the food was just wonderful and I cannot tell you how much I love this venue when it comes to the reception especially, for me as a photographer with the incredible lighting they have is so perfect for photos!

Here are some of my favorite moments from the day.
