She adores his playful sense of humor. He admires her deep intelligence. And we are wowed by Nikki and Dalton’s beautiful, classic wedding at The Astorian, with its timeless palette of white, black and gold, captured by the always amazing Ama By Aisha. The couple’s love story started when they were introduced to each other at a volleyball scrimmage the week before starting high school together. They dated all through high school, and kept their romance going (long distance) through college. Eventually they reunited in Houston, where their relationship had a chance to fully blossom, and one unforgettable evening, Dalton asked Nikki to be his bride, after a romantic dinner date. For their fall marriage celebration, the couple kept things timeless and elegant, with a black and gold wedding palette, taking advantage of The Astorian’s “glamorous, industrial, Art Deco feel,” the bride says. “We used blacks and gold for the bridesmaids dresses, linens and table settings, paired with white florals, and lots of greenery to pull it together,” in a classic wedding evening filled with fine food from Cordua Catering, and dancing to a live band. We’re so happy to feature this gorgeous Houston couple, and their gorgeous wedding. Congratulations, Nikki & Dalton! Click here to read the rest of this post »
