Tailor Made Galveston Cruise Wedding Experience

We’re sharing a real Galveston cruise wedding experience!


It’s that time of year and we love creating tailor made experiences for our Galveston cruise wedding couples! Some brides are busy recreating their childhood bridal visions. Yet, others simply can’t imagine the stress that comes with planning a huge wedding. Our couples appreciate a true show-up and get married experience prior to their Galveston cruise wedding.


This Galveston cruise wedding took place prior to the couple departing on their Caribbean honeymoon cruise. Andie and Joseph shared how they witnessed the stress of watching close friends plan their weddings. They were certain that was not how they wanted to spend their wedding day. Instead, they contacted us with a vision of a worry-free elopement experience, followed by them sailing away for their honeymoon.


After consulting with Andie, we took her love for garden and infused it with her strong desire for a beach wedding. Hence, their true love story was so fitting for a circle of love ceremony setting! We coupled Andie’s vision with the inspirational beauty of Galveston’s ornate Victorian gold decor elements that can be seen in many of the historical homes on the island. Golden accents with pops of ruby reds and wine floral blooms were a sweet setting for this couple’s Galveston cruise wedding experience.


We had a blast working with this couple and hope that you enjoy viewing their elopement story that was magnificently captured by Ronnie Bliss Photography. It was truly a magical experience, beautifully documented by Ronnie herself!

The bamboo arch structure was adorned with chiffon, a circle of love greenery and adorned with fresh floral accents.

Battery operated wax candles and lanterns lined the aisled and framed the ceremony area.

Instead of a first look prior to arrival, the couple had a first look at the altar.

They wrote such heartfelt vows to each other.


The first kiss and the new Mr. and Mrs.!


“The wedding was perfect, but not as perfect as you.”


After the ceremony, the sun slowly set for a perfect beach dining experience.

The bride was simply graceful as she held her hand tied garden bouquet.

The groom’s boutonniere coordinated with the bride’s bouquet so lovely.

The couple opted for a romantic beach dinner to celebrate their union.

The fall breeze was nothing compared to the love that was in the air!

As they sat to review the menu, shrimp cocktail was an ideal starter to the meal.

Fresh raspberries garnished their bubbly!

Cheers to many, many awesome years!

This was the perfect time for a social status update! “Married”

Fish Tales, a Landry’s restaurant, provided a wonderful beach dining experience.

Surf and Turf, of course!

Perfect couple, perfect wedding and a perfect end to the day.

Happily ever after!

Martha and Chris’s Precious Moment: Their Galveston Beach Wedding!

Martha and Chris’s Galveston wedding day was so perfect and we’re super excited to share their precious moment with you! To truly understand their story, their Galveston precious moments, take a peak below. Before you view the wedding, take a look at their story. You’ll love their Galveston love story!

Galveston holds a special place in our hearts because it’s where we got to know each other. The first few weekends of our relationship were spent sitting on the beach talking for hours. Four years later, Chris proposed to me in Galveston on a balcony overlooking the beach. We knew we wanted a Galveston wedding and we exchanged our vows on the beach on May 2nd, 2015. Our photographer helped us pick the perfect time of day, right before sunset, and Galveston just looked beautiful. The weather was perfect. I found our wedding coordinator through your website and she went above and beyond. We loved our wedding and want to people to know that Galveston is a perfect place to get married!

Galveston Beach Wedding | Galveston Strand Bienville Social Reception

Brooke and Trey knew they wanted a Galveston beach wedding. With their families not being local, the couple decided to host a Texas style Galveston beach wedding.

We feel in love with their save the date coasters. It gave the guests the first glimpse of the couple’s beyond the beach wedding day of cowboy boots, home brewed beer, Texas barbecue and a ton of fun!  Trey’s friend designed this coaster. If he’s willing to share his contact with us, we’ll post his details here for those that are interested in a save the date coaster for their wedding.

Although Galveston has miles and miles of beaches to host a Galveston beach wedding, our fun filled couple wanted to be near Pleasure Pier. Guests loved it also!

Miriam + Richard | Galveston Engagement Photos

We are guilty of busily producing Galveston weddings and unintentionally holding out on these very lovely Galveston engagement photos. Following the suggestion of Steve Lee, their photographer, Miriam and Richard embraced Galveston for their Galveston engagement photography session. We’re so excited to share them with you!

Most couples look to Galveston as a coastal destination. Galveston may offer a Gulf Coast backdrop for your engagement photos, but it also offers so much more. Galveston is filled with history and so much character. Here, Miriam and Richard used the Galveston Railroad Museum as their backdrop.

Nautical Wedding Theme

Nautical Wedding Theme | Wedding Theme Tuesdays

Creating a nautical wedding theme can be a fun and elegant experience. Galveston offers many locations that will offer a picturesque backdrop to your nautical inspired nuptials. From chartering a private yacht to sail Galveston Bay to creating an elegant timeless celebration on board the 1877 Barque Elissa, your nautical wedding theme will be perfectly framed with beautiful lifetime memories.

The fun thing about nautical themes, is that there are endless possibilities of pop color choices. In this example, we illustrate the use of sunny yellow. This would be lovely with a fire red, lime green, gold tones or even a hot orange for an unexpected twist!
