In honor of Memorial Day weekend, I thought it would only be fitting to share my favorite images from a military wedding that I was happy to document this past February. Christie and Andy were married aboard the historic Battleship Texas, which holds a very special place in this bride’s heart. Christie is passionate about this historical site and Texas History in general, which is something that we had in common (I am a HUGE genealogy and history geek). Her husband Andy is currently serving in the US Navy, so this really was the perfect setting for their small and intimate wedding!
Originally, the ceremony was to take place in the Dreadnought Room, but with the addition of a few more last minute guests, it was going to be an extremely tight fit in there! Luckily, this wasn’t a Texas summer wedding so the weather felt great for a ceremony out on the bow. There was a part of me that felt a little nervous skirting around the edges for different angles during the ceremony, but I’m happy to report that neither I nor my gear fell into the waters below. :)
One of Christie’s talented friends sang and played Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years” as Christie was escorted by her father to the bow of the ship. I always love to see a gifted friend share their talent for their friend’s wedding day, be it the gift of song, art, or poetry. It really was lovely!
Here are just a few of my favorites from Christie and Andy’s Battleship Texas Wedding!
Christie and Andy, thank you so much for sharing your day with me and trusting me to document such an amazing day for you! Your family and friends were so welcoming, and clearly shared in your joy. Congratulations!– Sasha
