WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Kerry and Kris ~ October 5, 2013

Though they’d always known they’d wed, Kerry and Kris, who were introduced by a mutual friend in 2002, were simply waiting for the timing to be right, “which, for us, just happened to be about 10 years,” the bride says. Kris proposed to his beloved on bended knee at the top of a Colorado ski slope while fellow skiers applauded. “It was magical and I could not have imagined it being any better,” Kerry says. A little over a year later, the pair celebrated with 150 friends and family members, who sat at tables named for the groom’s favorite James Bond movies, and dined on filet mignon and shrimp, followed by slices from a magnificent four-tier wedding cake. The bride’s favorite moment? “Our first dance after we were introduced as husband and wife,” she recounts. “We danced to Aerosmith’s ‘Don’t Want to Miss a Thing.’”

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Jessica and Dustin ~ June 1, 2013

One more reason to attend professional networking events: meeting the love of your life. Handsome Dustin caught Jessica’s eye at one such Houston event; four years later the pair shared their vows in an intimate St. Croix destination wedding, with 55 of their loved ones on hand to join in the celebration. Jessica radiant in flowing Pronovias, her groom resort-dapper in his pale gray suit, the Houston-based paramours partied beach-style—with the help of rum cocktails, a tropical-inspired menu, and DJ-spun tunes—then enjoyed a lazy Virgin Islands recovery with their best friends and closest family members.

Boho-Chic, Rustic Austin Mansion Wedding

Thursday, August 28th, 2014

“Our design aim was to discover the intersection between what Barr Mansion had already so beautifully curated and where we found our personality within that,” says bride Jenna of her wedding to adorable Nathan at Austin’s foodie-focused wedding venue. “We took the antique, rustic, free-spirit, artistic, creative, comfortable and natural beauty that was already there and built on that with homegrown flowers, handcrafted centerpieces, personalized paper-cut banners, unique music, DIY’d accent pieces, and a relaxing, lounge-style reception atmosphere.” Even the day’s wet weather was a welcome happenstance. “My mom mentioned that it had rained on her wedding day, and Nathan remarked how the drizzly gray weather looked exactly like where he grew up in Alaska.” We’re delighted to share with you this sweet couple’s lovely wedding, featuring coordination by Kat Creech Events and flowers by Dream Bouquet—make sure to check out more from this talented team of top Houston wedding vendors in the new issue of Weddings in Houston (“Opulence Among the Oaks,” p. 216), on newsstands now!
