WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Michelle and Chris ~ September 14, 2013

While Michelle admits that meeting Chris as a high-school senior “was not love at first sight, as I was not looking for a boyfriend,” her future husband’s persistence paid off. Seven years after they met, the couple joined together in matrimony, with an elegant wedding in Chateau Cocomar’s magnificent castle-like setting, complete with marble floors and twinkling chandeliers. Michelle’s chosen palette of soft neutrals and a hint of blush pink created an air of timeless romance—the perfect backdrop for the newlyweds’ first dance (Michelle’s favorite wedding memory), and every moment thereafter. At the night’s close, guests held aloft 20-inch-long sparklers as Mr. and Mrs. O’Malley shared a kiss.

Thursday, July 10th, 2014

“The whole wedding was a dream,” says Houston bride Jennifer. “One of my favorite details was the midnight calla lilies in my bridal bouquet. I loved the rich dark color of the flowers against my cream dress.” The dark, rich color palette of black and plum with accents of peacock feathers truly set the tone for Jennifer and Scott’s wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th Street. If you think that sounds beautiful, wait ’til you see the pics! Thanks Akil Bennett for the gorgeous photos, and congrats to the newlyweds!

Golden, Ivory, and Plum Rustic Wedding at Ashton Gardens by Joshua Tyi Photography

Tuesday, June 10th, 2014

Kayla and Billy met during her freshman year at East Texas Baptist University at a mentoring event. “He came over to talk to me and I was too shy. He tried and tried all night and I still wouldn’t talk to him,” says Kayla. Although she did not give Billy any attention at the event, as soon as she went home Kayla did what every girl would do: told her roommate everything! They soon started a Facebook search for Billy and sent a friend request, which led to messaging and eventually dating. Billy set up a sweet proposal adventure for Kayla while riding a four-wheeler on his best friend’s land. The lovebirds read through their journal and scriptures underneath a tree adorned with candles and mason jars (AWW!). Before Kayla could get through the second page, Billy was on one knee ready to propose. If you think their proposal story is sweet, just wait ‘til you see the gorgeous photos of their rustic-chic wedding at Ashton Gardens! Thanks Joshua Tyi for the amazing photos and congratulations to the lovely newlyweds!
