Blush, Ivory and Gold Wedding at the Bell Tower on 34th Street

Monday, November 10th, 2014

Houston bride Meagan instantly fell in love with the grand Italian-villa-inspired architecture of The Bell Tower on 34th Street, which perfectly complemented her soft, romantic color palette of blush, ivory and gold. “I loved the beautiful carved-wood chapel doors, and had a vision of a grand entrance,” she says. “My fondest moment was when the bell tower rang, the doors opened and we locked eyes as I walked down the aisle.” Meagan wore a gorrrgeous drop-waist, lace bridal gown from Brickhouse Bridal with glittery gold Jimmy Choo pumps, of course. Swooning already? Yeah, we thought so. Just wait ’til you see the pics of the bouquet, centerpieces and OMG cake from Who Made The Cake! Congrats and best wishes, Meagan and JT!

Wedding Boots Are Cute…But They’re Cuter with Darby’s!

Tuesday, October 28th, 2014

We’ve been going gaga for Darby’s boot socks ever since this awesome legwear made its way into our I Do! Bridal Soiree swag bags. Why, you ask? These combo girly-knee-highs-and-performance-ankle-socks-in-one are pretty much the perfect accessory for you Southern brides and bridesmaids who plan to rock cowboy boots with your wedding-day wear! Darby’s, available from Bootights, combine an opaque knee-high that feels smooth and stays put, with an attached boot sock that is cushioned and comfy enough for dancing ’til dawn. And with colors including pink, blue, cream, stone, oodles of patterns, lace tops and more, these babies beg to be seen. Give ’em to your b’maids as wedding-day gifts, hand them out as shower favors…and keep a pair for yourself, darlin.’ There are plenty to go around!

Glamorous Purple & Green Wedding

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

Austyn could never have predicted that she’d eventually marry her dashing high-school prom date, Dane. But when their trip to the beach for Austyn’s 24th birthday turned into a surprise proposal, well, lovely Austyn knew she’d made the right choice. The pair wed in front of 250 of their nearest and dearest in grand style, and partied the night away surrounded by tall candelabras, dramatic floral arrangements, and tons of glitz n’ glam. Sounds gorgeous? Just wait ’til you see the sweet pics. Congrats and best wishes to the happy couple!

Vintage Garden Theme Wedding at Hotel Galvez by Akil Bennett Photography

Monday, October 6th, 2014

Let’s face it. Planning an outdoor wedding in Texas, especially Galveston, can be pretty risky due to unexpected weather patterns. Don’t let that bring you down! You can always bring the outside in, which is exactly what Ally’s father suggested. With the help of the florist, Ally’s dream of an outside wedding indoors came to life at Galveston’s premier wedding venue, Hotel Galvez. The ceiling was covered in vines and Spanish moss to create an enchanted look as if you were standing underneath a tree. Garden-like centerpieces were seen throughout the ballroom. Sounds lovely? Just wait ‘til you see these sweet pics by Akil Bennett of Akil Bennett Photography. Congrats Ally & Zach on a beautiful wedding & best wishes!

Thursday, October 2nd, 2014

“I had a patient in the ER that needed massive transfusion of blood products. Andrew was working in the blood bank that night. We exchanged simple conversation but I couldn’t stop thinking about him. I messaged him on Facebook a few weeks later, basically asking for a date. He text messaged me the next morning and we’ve been together ever since,” says Houston bride Lenee. If you think their made-for-TV meet-cute is sweet (and verrry dramatic), just wait ’til you see the beautiful photos from their wedding at The Crystal Ballroom at the Rice taken by Aisha Khan from Ama Photography & Cinema! Congrats Lenee & Andrew on tying the knot!
