In 2015, Kallie worked at the gym Colt would frequent. Although Kallie was interested in Colt, she was too shy to say hello…until one fateful day Colt messaged Kallie’s friend and co-worker asking if the gym was hiring. Kallie seized the opportunity to finally talk to her crush and immediately took over the conversation to message Colt, ”Take me to lunch and I will get you the job.” From there the rest was history and while on a family trip to Cancun, Colt popped the question during a romantic beach dinner as onlookers and Colt’s family cheered him on.

The couple chose the stately Iron Manor for a wedding the bride describes as a “Whimsical fairytale with an abundance of florals against Iron Manor’s stark and sleek Chicago style brick, accented with steel beams and gorgeous crystal chandeliers.” Kallie and Colt pledged their love in a romantic indoor ceremony overflowing with lush greenery and blush and white blooms, exquisitely designed by Plants N’ Petals. The whimsical decor continued in Iron Manor’s Crane Hall for an ethereal reception where greenery filled the industrial space. The couple’s most cherished moments from their fairytale wedding day were, “First look with each other, father of the groom officiating the wedding, and dancing the night away with loved ones.”

We are so delighted to share this whimsical fairytale wedding at Iron Manor, in all its splendor, with you. Congratulations, Kallie & Colt!

With a mutual love of exploring small Texas towns, Amy and Jayce set out to visit Navasota to celebrate Jayce graduating from Texas A&M University. The trip became a celebration in more ways than one when they got to the front door of St. Paul’s Episcopal church and found a piece of wood on the ground. Jayce insisted Amy pick it up, and she did, “When I did, the sign read ‘New historical marker: Jayce Thomas Gates asks Amy Lane Surles to be his wife’,” recalls Amy. Of course, she said yes!

The couple’s wedding was a grand and elegant affair with décor expertly designed by floral design firm Plants N’ Petals. Notes the bride: “The color palette was light and airy with shades of wonderful pinks, cream and chartreuse green with accents of gold. The combination of over-the-top and grand tall florals on square tables, round cocktail tables with low lush florals and candles, and luxurious gold velvet lounge furniture came together to complete a perfect modern and classic cocktail-style reception look.” For the groom, Susie’s Cakes hit it out of the park with a show-stopping groom’s cake of Minute Maid Park. And it was only fitting for surprise guest Orbit, the Astros mascot, to help cut the cake! The unforgettable night concluded with the newlyweds exiting beneath a shower of rose petals, before speeding away in a vintage Rolls Royce.

Join us in swooning over this beautiful pink, white and creams classic wedding by Plants N’ Petals. Congratulations, Amy & Jayce!
