Teddi and Darren’s wedding day at the Bell Tower on 34th in Houston, Texas was one of the most beautiful, most emotional weddings Emerald Stone ever had the pleasure of photographing. It was beyond anything we can even properly describe. From the decor, to the food, the guests, the amazing couple… everything was absolutely perfect.
These two lovebirds were the 2017 winners of our annual Wedding Photography Giveaway, and little did we know the incredible adventure their wonderful celebration would take us to . . . including all the way to an episode of Say Yes to the Dress!
When Erica first talked to Teddi about what she was looking for when it came to wedding photography for her big day, she was struck with not only how absolutely kind, sincere, and genuine Teddi is, but her focus on family was evident. She wanted her wedding to be a fun, memorable experience for all of her guests, and her fiance, Darren, shared the same thoughts. I think it’s safe to say they far exceeded anyone’s expectations.
Working with Teddi and Darren was absolutely awesome, and being able to photograph along side the crew of Say Yes to the Dress was an absolute privilege. Teddi’s stunning wedding gown came from Kleinfeld’s Bridal in Manhattan, and her wedding day was chosen to appear on a future episode!
We’ve photographed alongside videographers before, but never a full TV show staff! This crew was beyond incredible to work with, and we were blown away by their talent and ability to capture every single detail on film.
The Director, Norma, was so great. We watched her work her magic from behind-the-scenes, and she made sure everything was perfect, from the fluff of the bridal gown to the position of everyone’s feet!
At the end of the night, Norma said to Erica, “Teddi and Darren are one of the most genuine couples I have ever met.” And we couldn’t agree with her more.
Below are a few of our favorite behind-the-scenes shots from Teddi and Darren’s wedding day in Houston. Please enjoy, and stay tuned for more updates when their episode will air!
