True Galveston Weddings: A San Luis Galveston Beach Backdrop Wedding

San Luis Galveston Beach Backdrop Wedding with a little Bling! 

San Luis Resort is a beautiful beach front resort property that’s perfect for destination weddings. San Luis Resort’s ceremony garden is perfectly placed to offer a tropical beach backdrop. Some couples decide that they want a beach wedding, but would prefer not to step foot on a sandy beach. What they truly desire is a beach backdrop to frame their nuptials. Couples looking for a  Galveston beach backdrop for their ceremony may find San Luis Resort is an ideal location for them. Take a look at this true Galveston wedding, documented by Ultimate Events Unlimited.

Tiffany and KC’s Ashton Villa mansion wedding will always be one of my favorite Galveston weddings. Not only was the couple super to work with, but the idea to marry at Ashton Villa just as KC’s parents had simply melts my heart. Precious Nuptials & Destinations teamed up with our bride to create this time honored second generation Ashton Villa mansion wedding!

Here are a few images from Tiffany and KC’s wedding day as it was beautifully documented by Miabella Photography!
