Vintage Blush and Gold Wedding at Ashton Gardens

Houston bride Tera first met her prince charming right around the corner- literally. Tera and Shawn lived in the same neighborhood, attended the same schools, and shared mutual friends. It wasn’t until he came back home from the Air Force 11 years later that they reunited at their best friend’s wedding. Tera and Shawn hit it off and the rest was history. The lovebirds celebrated with 80 of their nearest and dearest at one of Houston’s most unique wedding venues- Ashton Gardens. The romantic chandeliers and color palette of blush, cream and gold set the tone for their vintage wedding. Congrats and well wishes to the newlyweds!

Rustic-Chic Spring Wedding at Old Glory Ranch

Whitney and Zak’s picture-perfect spring wedding at Old Glory Ranch was the very picture of elegant simplicity. “Old Glory Ranch is so beautiful that it doesn’t need a lot of decorations” says bride Whitney. “The elegant rustic setting of the outdoor patio along with the beautiful spring creations and centerpieces were all that were needed to evoke the perfect atmosphere.” She adds, “Our wedding was all about spring, family and being in love. I have always been a bit of a free spirit. I love being by the water, being outdoors, and I love flowers of any and every kind.” Wimberley’s Old Glory Ranch offered all of these elements, to which Whitney added vintage family wedding photos and filled the celebration with her favorite music. We hope you enjoy these beautiful photos of Whitney & Zak’s wedding as much as we did. Best wishes to the newlyweds!

Old Hollywood Glam Wedding at The Sam Houston Hotel

It all started with the typical “you look familiar” pick-up line, says Houston bride Rachel. “Patrick swears to this day that I was staring at him all night… little did he know that I did not have my contacts in and couldn’t see far away!” After one random night out in Huntsville, they were inseparable. Rachel and Patrick celebrated with 160 of their nearest and dearest at The Sam Houston Hotel. The crystal chandeliers, feather-accented centerpieces and pops of color set the tone for their “Old Hollywood” theme. Congrats, Rachel & Patrick, we wish you two nothing but a lifetime of love!

Classic Ivory, Merlot and Blush Wedding by Sarah Ainsworth Photography

From its serene gold-accented palette, to its seasonal menu of roasted corn chowder and beef tenderloin with wild-mushroom-and-onion risotto, to its crystal chandeliers and soft candlelight, Hayley and Jeffrey’s fall wedding is pretty much a perfect example of how to do fall elegance fabulously. The couple, who met on a blind date (!!)—which led to a second date the very next day—wanted their marriage celebration to be not just full of love, but utterly timeless. We think they did both, beautifully. And we’ve got the gorgeous photos by super-talented Houston photographer Sarah Ainsworth to prove it. Congratulations, Hayley & Jeffrey!

Enchanted Garden Theme Wedding by Sarah Ainsworth Photography

Though they met in high school in 2001, Nancy and Matthew didn’t connect until a chance Facebook “happy birthday” greeting a decade later. “She asked me what I had been up to all those years,” recounts Matthew. “I didn’t feel like typing out my whole life, so I asked her to lunch instead.” That lunch lasted five hours; two and half years later, the couple celebrated their lifelong vows with an “enchanted-forest”-theme wedding, where 330 guests dined and danced the night away—but not before being treated to a concept video, screened before the pair’s reception entrance, that cast them as CIA agents with one last mission to accomplish before they could get married. “At the end of the video, there was a caption that read, ‘Will they make it on time?’” says Matthew. “That’s when our emcee introduced us and we heard the crowd yelling as we walked in. It set the tone for what turned out to be the most perfect night ever.” Big thanks to Weddings in Houston fave Sarah Ainsworth Photography for capturing that perfection in equally perfect pix.
