Formerly Paraiso Maravilla, Las Velas has long been a secret haven for a few select photographers and is Houston’s premier location to host wedding ceremonies and receptions. With courtyards full of blooming bougainvillea, hibiscus, and other greenery, Las Velas truly presents itself as “a world away.” Located in the heard of the Galleria, Las Velas is sure to offer the most ornate architecture and romantic setting in Houston.

Las Velas, formerly Paraiso Maravilla, was the site of this extraodinary wedding a few days ago in the heart of the Galleria near downtown Houston. The grooms family was from Norway and the Brides family from Mexico. Borrowing a quote from one of my from my favorite movies My big Fat Greek Wedding, “Here tonight, we have, ah, apple and orange. We all different, but in the end, we all fruit.”

The first photograph below of our couple kissing with their wedding cake in the foreground was not posed. This is an actual moment captured during the first dance. I sat behind the wedding cake and waited patiently for our couple to dance over to the right side of the cake. Slowly they emerged into the composition I had hoped for and just before I took the photo the groom delicately kissed his wife on her forehead. What a beautiful moment!
