They met and dated over 16 years ago, but timing was not on their side and they lost touch. Gina remembered Ray though, how he fascinated her and made her feel, and in Gina’s words “Ray sorta became the ‘one who got away.’”
In February of 2014 they reconnected. They went to Chelsea Wine Bar on Taylor Lake for their second first date, and were inseparable from that point forward!
Fast forwarding to September of 2015, Ray took Gina out to dinner then back to Chelsea Wine Bar. Some wine and stargazing later, Ray suggested that they go stand by the water before they left. There they shared their first kiss, and Ray knelt and asked Gina to share his forever. She said yes!
On March 4th Ray and Gina stood aboard the Tall Ship Elissa in Galveston Harbor as they promised their love to each other! Writing their own heartfelt vows, Ray promised to make Gina laugh every day, and Gina pledged to always be a safe place for Ray’s heart. The end of their sweet ceremony was punctuated by rain, but the skies quickly cleared for a lovely outdoor reception on the docks.
Gina and Ray got ready at the gorgeous Tremont House in Galveston!
Gina and Ray choose the rooftop bar of the Tremont as their first look location, and it was a perfect choice!
Gina and Ray, thank you for giving me the honor of documenting your love and the day you committed yourselves to each other! I hope you’re able to enjoy each moment you spend together for the rest of your lives!
Many thanks to the fantastic vendors that brought Gina's vision to life!
