Ceremony and Reception:  The Gallery, Houston, Texas

Two M.D.’s in love.

Tina and Chase knew each other while they were in medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio (Chase has just graduated last year).

This is the story of how they have met, according to Tina:

Chase and Tina both went to medical school at the University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio (UTHSCSA for short).  Although Chase was one year ahead of Tina, they met through a mutual friend who invited Tina to their study group.  Tina remembers that first encounter as Chase glancing up from his textbook to say a brief, dismissive “hello,” and then resuming his reading.  Thankfully, they got to know each other a little better at Starbucks where they and several other friends studied every day.  It took Chase over a year to gather the nerve to ask Tina out (at Starbucks, of course), to which Tina was shocked because Chase had never appeared to take a interest in her — little did she know he had kept his eye on her, waiting until the timing was right.  On their first date, they went to the movies and afterward, talked for hours at a pub where they discovered they shared interests in more things than just a well-brewed cup of coffee…and the rest, as they say, is history.

Starbucks…. actually, that’s where I met Chase last May in South Austin before we got a semi-permanent space at the Austin Executive Centre Suites, too!  Must be something brewing in the coffee….

Tina and Chase decided to meet each other before the wedding.  Obviously Chase hasn’t seen her dress and here is the entire sequence:

It must be San Antonio because it is always windy when I photograph in the city or around the area…

I love it when a wedding has so much emotion from both the bride and yes, the groom.

Meanwhile, the guys decided to ask Chase questions about Tina that he should have known (but obviously, the questions was set up so that it’s impossible to get the right answer), and the groomsmen were supposed to punish Chase by using one of the objects on the floor….
