Today’s gorgeous real wedding, brought to us by Lindsy Steinberg Events, is the perfect blend of tradition and modern style! Here’s Lindsy to tell us more:

Eight years in the making, Samantha and Graham’s beautiful wedding day was filled with sentiments, culture, modern elegance and most importantly, love. The bride started the day with a Pearls & Pajamas bridal luncheon while getting ready with her bridesmaids in a suite at Hotel Sorella. The day was filled with laughter and tears of joy as Samantha got ready for the wedding.

See more after the cut!

She wore a stunning blush wedding gown to the ceremony with a sleeve from her mother’s wedding gown wrapped around her bouquet. The bride was sure to have a special first look with her father as well as one with her bridesmaids which added for some truly beautiful photo moments. Keeping tradition in mind, the bride and groom had a photo taken with the entire wedding party without seeing each other prior to the ceremony.

So many unique details brought this elegant wedding to life. The maid of honor made the Ketubah, a Jewish marriage contract, for the couple as a wedding gift. The bride wore her grandmother’s Texas A&M garter throughout the evening. As a surprise to the guests, the bride changed into a redesigned version of her mother’s wedding gown for the reception, with a fun purple petticoat.

The wedding favors were personalized shot glasses, which is something the groom has collected since he was a child. The couple incorporated modern twists and classic traditions from both their alma mater, Texas A&M, and their Jewish culture. They enjoyed their evening dancing into the night and concluding with a bubble send-off. After a luxurious honeymoon to Saint Lucia, they have started their life together in Houston, Texas.
