I have made it exponentially clear that the C. Baron team loves Galveston. There is so much to fall in love with in that city. However, my personal favorite is all of the history that has taken place on that little island. Imagine all of the excitement that has taken place on Galveston soil! It is no stranger to success, tragedy, fun and love. The island is the birthplace of so many love stories and many marriages have originated there. One such love story is Maggie and Anthony’s! It was such a beautiful day and there was no shortage of reminders of Galveston History!
Maggie and Anthony said their vows in the beautiful 1859 St. Joseph’s Church. It is the oldest wooden church structure in Galveston and the oldest German Catholic Church in Texas. It also just so happens to be a 1900 Storm Survivor! It was the perfect place to get married! It is the most adorable little white church with green shutters and a red door! Besides, any structure strong enough to withstand one of the greatest storms in American history is good enough for me! Both the ladies and the guys took trolleys over to the church, which made the trip so much more fun! While Maggie and Anthony did not have a first look, Maggie shared a first look with her dad as she came off of the trolley. It was so sweet and you could see how proud he was of his little girl! Maggie walked down the aisle as the string quartet played beautifully! It was a beautiful and intimate ceremony.
After the ceremony, the party began at The Trolley Station on the strand, another historic building. The building was constructed in 1864 where it was originally housed a wholesale liquor store and various other businesses. Not only did the structure survive the 1900 Storm, it also survived a major fire a few months before the storm! Another strong and beautiful structure! So fitting for our happy and fun bride and groom! It was such a lively night and everyone had so much fun! Tunes of “Sweet Caroline” filled the air, sun glasses and glow sticks were worn and there was even a performance by the groom and his brother. It was definitely one of those nights that you don’t want to go home early! We are wishing Maggie and Anthony the very best in their marriage together as it had such a beautiful beginning!
