Houston bride Kristi went to town on planning the details for her candlelit, garden-inspired, beautiful wedding at The Gallery. Kristi carefully thought out every single detail, from the wax-sealed vintage programs, to rose-folded vanilla napkins, to spending months collecting wine bottles to hand make soy wax candles for the guests! Kristi and her groom, Ross chose a soft color palette of blush, ivory, gold, and hints of mint that filled the room for a romantic setting. There were not one, but FIVE different white-on-white cakes, custom macaroni and cheese bar, AND a late night doughnut station for the guests to indulge in. If you think all of this sounds amazing, just wait ‘til you see how gorgeous the photos are! Congrats & well wishes to Kristi & Ross!

Oooo, honey, you KNOW how much we love a good “proposal deception” story…and Ryan popping the question to Melissa is one of the best we’ve heard! “My sister, who is an aspiring actress, will often go on auditions and invite me (the bride) along with her. I always go along for support, so when she invited me to come along to an audition for an independent film, I did not hesitate. The audition was at Hotel Derek, there were signs welcoming those auditioning, sign-up sheets, and she was even assigned a number. I prayed with her in the lobby and all of the staff were rooting for her! She was super nervous so she asked if I could come back and actually watch her audition. When we were given the OK, I entered the room, and saw Ryan standing there all dressed up while I stood there confused. My sister was gone, it was only us and he got on one knee. There were candles and rose petals all around. It was perfect!” Ah, the old sibling’s-fake-film-audition ruse…gets ’em every time. Even cuter? “Our families were in another room watching it all happen on Skype.” Aww. The pair, who met four years ago while both working as nurses on the same Houston Medical Center unit and quickly became inseparable, tied the knot this past spring, with a breathtakingly beautiful 1920s-inspired wedding, decorated in fine vintage fashion by Houston fave Darryl & Co. We’re so grateful to this adorable pair for sharing their love with all of us, and all y’all…congratulations, Melissa and Ryan!
