Glamour, Glimmer and Shades at Charcoal Gray & Pale Pink Wedding at Dukessa

Wednesday, October 29th, 2014

Phillip and Krisella first met in Austin at a mutual friend’s baby shower. “He was late and the first thing out of my mouth after we were properly introduced was, ‘Hi. You’re late (with my big signature smile).’ It worked because we never stopped seeing each other from that day forward!” After a year of being inseparable, Phillip and Krisella decided to tie the knot. Krisella wore a gorgeous Maggie Sottero gown from Weddings by Debbie with stunning stacked diamond bracelets and teardrop diamond earrings to complete her Old Hollywood glam look. The room was filled with romantic low lights, and rose, anemone and hydrangea flower arrangements. We could go on and on about how beautiful this Houston wedding was at Dukessa, but we want YOU to fall in love with the photos as much as we did. Congrats and best wishes to the lovely couple!

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!
