Eat, Drink, and Be Married : Bentwater Yacht & Country Club Wedding Photography

Happy Valentine’s Day to you lovebirds everywhere! As we are blogging this beautiful wedding, we are also excitedly waiting for our fun date night. The Red Dress is ready. The Navy Blue suit is pressed. Reservation made for our favorite Hawaiian Ribeye steak dinner at Houston’s. Tickets bought for a ballet performance of Moulin Rouge.

This may sound like just another weekend itinerary for those who are new in relationships. However, somehow date nights tend to fall lower and lower down your priority list the moment you share the same last name. Demanding jobs, children, business, chores, and other seemingly “more important” things creep up and suddenly date nights seem to be unnecessary luxury.

But just like anything else – be it a successful career or a growing business or a well brought-up child – a flourishing marriage requires a lot of dedicated time, focus, efforts, and even financial investments. Long before the days of Dr. Phil and marriage counselors, the Bible (of all places) already advocates the importance of having regular date nights. One of its chapters clearly and plainly advises its readers “to eat, drink and be merry”. Not only that, it even goes further to boldly remind men to “enjoy the wife of your youth”. Yep – the Bible sure is full of not-so-subtle surprises and some R-rated narratives :)

For our special Valentine’s Day blog edition, we are proud to present Fredy and Grace. They may be newlyweds, but they understand the importance of carving out time for each other in the midst of life’s busyness. So much so that they requested their wedding guests to give them fun date night ideas. What a clever ask – this way all they’d have to do is pull one of these the next time they run out of ideas!

Here’s a challenge to all you married couples out there: Get on Google Calendar now and reserve one day each month for dating your spouse. And we mean REALLY get into it…as though it’s you guys’ first date. Hire a babysitter, buy her favorite flowers, maybe scout Groupon for some exciting adventures that you both may enjoy (skydiving, anyone?)… or simply light up candles and get into a romantic mood at home. Why the cheesy hassle, you ask? Because your marriage is worth it.
