A Sacred Heart Church Wedding in Galveston, Texas | Kathryn & Landon
Kathryn and Landon’s Sacred Heart Church wedding in Galveston, Texas was beautiful. These two first met in 2018 at the University of Houston during their Junior year. I do a lot of weddings at this venue, and it will never get old to me! While we didn’t have the best weather (drizzle, high wind speeds, one of the coldest days of the year!) it was still such a stunning and fun day celebrating this beautiful couple! Landon and Kathryn LOVE baseball. Landon played college baseball and they are big Houston Astros fans and even had Orbit, the Astro’s mascot, as a guest at the wedding reception!
Getting Ready With The Bride
Kathryn and her bridesmaids got ready for the day together, and Kathryn opened gifts and then read a sweet letter from Landon. She had such a beautiful dress with a large bow on the back and looked like an absolute pricess for her big day! She also had the cutest custom getting ready robe with the fur cuffs that I loved! Kathyn has been dreaming of her wedding day for years, and even has a Pinterest board for wedding inspiration dating back to 2012! Dont we all?
Getting Ready With The Groom
Landon also had a great time getting ready for the ceremony with his groomsman. Before he got ready, he also opened a gift from Kathryn and read some sweet words from her. After he was ready and in his suit, him and his groomsman shared a shot together before the ceremony!
Private First Looks & Vows at The Tremont House
Kathryn and Landon shared the sweetest first look with eachother before their ceremony, and also read their private vows to one another. They were filled with so much love and emotion, and I absolutely loved Landons reaction to seeing Kathryn for the first time before their ceremony!
A Beautiful Wedding at Sacred Heart Church in Galveston, Texas
Kathryn and Landons Sacred Heart church wedding ceremony was nothing short of beautiful. You could tell just how happy and excited everyone was for them, and all the love that was felt for Landon and Kathryn as they said their I do’s. You could also tell how happy Landon was feeling as he seen Kathryn, and how emotional it felt to see her. Even though they did a first look before the ceremony, all the feelings of emotion rushed back as he seen his bride walking down the aisle.
Bride & Groom Portraits at Sacred Heart Church & The Tremont House in Galveston
Kathryn and Landons bride and groom portraits were so fun to capture, and they are such a stunning couple! Unfortunately we couldnt do many outside because of the weather, but I think they still turned out so great, and also showed off the beauty of The Tremont House which was their reception venue.

A Fun Wedding Reception at The Tremont House
This wedding reception at The Tremont House was SO MUCH FUN! It was truly a blast! Kathryn and Landon both have large families, so they knew they wanted an over the top and fun party! Plus, they had Orbit, the Astros mascot come along for the party and everyone loved it. They even had Whataburger late night snacks and Rons Martini Bar for them and their wedding guests which was a serious hit! On top of that, Kathryn and Landon changed into their reception attire and it was definitely a vibe!

Sweet Words From Kathryn and Landon
“Aly was truly a dream to work with! From start to finish, she exceeded our expectations every single time and I could not have imagined our wedding process without her. Aly took our engagement photos, my bridals and boudoir, our rehearsal dinner, and our wedding day. Every single moment was captured to perfection and every photo was taken and edited with such attention to detail. Aly is an amazing communicator and made the whole process so easy! Each of our galleries were delivered in a timely manner and we were given sneak peeks immediately following each session. Aly was so helpful in the planning of my engagement and bridal sessions and made her sure Landon and I felt comfortable and confident behind the camera!
On our wedding day, weather did not go according to plan, but you would never know looking at our photos. She adapted to the situation and ensured we still had timeless and stunning photos to remember our day by. She used my inspiration, as well as her own creativity to curate a timeless, yet fun and trendy wedding gallery for Landon and I. We truly cannot recommend Aly enough! If you want a photographer that truly cares about you as a couple, and will deliver quality work book Aly Matei Photography.”
