St. George Orthodox Christian Church | Post Oak Hotel Wedding | Houston, Texas | Issam + Natalia

Just days before their nuptials, Texas was plunged into darkness and blanketed in snow. But, the union of Issam and Natalia was sure to restore the sunny days that Texas is so accustomed to. The couple’s extraordinary elegance and impressive dancing abilities created a magical atmosphere at the Post Oak Hotel, making their wedding an unforgettable event that everyone present will cherish forever.
We spent the morning of the wedding day in their homes where they prepared for the big day. While the photos didn’t fit the blog, there were celebrations even before heading to St. George Orthodox Christian Church. The very moment Natalia walked up the aisle played out like the scene of a movie. The doors opened and I could feel everyone hold their breath as Natalia slowly made her way down the aisle.
After the ceremony, we turned to The Post Oak Hotel at Uptown Houston where we took a few portraits before their grand entrance. The reception was full of events and included special dances, heartfelt toasts, a cake that came down from the ceiling! One of the things I love about Issam + Natalia is just how loved they are by their friends! Every single person was ecstatic to celebrate with them, and of course, myself included! The celebration officially went on until midnight, however, I doubt the party ended there.
A Note to the Couple
I+N, It has been a privilege to witness and be a part of your remarkable journey from proposal to wedding day – I am so thankful to have met two such wonderful, kind-hearted people like yourselves. My sincerest wishes are with you both as you start this incredible new chapter in your lives as husband and wife – may all your dreams come true!
