Maroon, Gray & White Wedding at The Corinthian by J. Cogliandro Photography

When Brittney first met Taylor through a mutual friend while they were both attending Texas A&M, she wasn’t so sure about dating the “old” guy. Six months later, that changed. Brittney decided to text Taylor to see how he was doing and the rest was history. Taylor planned the perfect proposal in Paris that completely swept Brittney off of her feet. “We stayed in a quaint little hotel near the Eiffel Tower and he told me that we were doing an 8 AM Eiffel Tower tour but he wanted me to look nice so we could take some pictures beforehand. At 7 AM, we stood in Trocadero Square where the Eiffel tower sits beautifully in the background attempting to take selfies. A photographer walked by offering to take pictures of us and it turns out, Taylor had been talking to this photographer and coordinated this whole plan. I had no idea. The photographer’s line was “the lighting is perfect now” and that is when Taylor got on his knee and asked me to marry him.” Looks like dating an “older” guy isn’t so bad after all, huh. It was only appropriate for the pair to plan their Houston wedding around the Texas A&M color palette of maroon, gray and white, which complemented their gorgeous wedding venue, The Corinthian, perfectly. Just wait until you see the beautiful photos from their wedding, thanks to J. Cogliandro Photography. You’ll be swooning for sure. Congrats Brittney and Taylor, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Peach, Pink and Gold Wedding at The Houstonian by J. Cogliandro Photography

Ashley had been bugging Rick to plan the perfect date night, and that he did. Rick made dinner reservations at one of their favorite restaurants. Even when were then seated at a table with a dozen roses and a bottle of wine, Ashley still didn’t suspect anything. After all, they were low-key, private people–it never occurred to her that Rick would propose in public. But as soon as they were done with their meal, the restaurant’s manager personally presented the couple with dessert under a cloche cover. When Ashley removed the cloche, she discovered a ring box, and, well, let’s just say it turned out to be a date night she’d never forget. Ashley and Rick’s opulent wedding at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa was a dream come true. “We ended up creating exactly what we wanted, a very festive and romantic atmosphere with a classic feel that recognized the importance of the moment”,” the bride says. Tall pink and peach candelabras, and hanging candles above the dance floor, added the perfect touch of romance and elegance to the evening. Thanks J. Cogliandro for the beautiful photos, and congrats to the newlyweds!

Sage, Peach & Coral Garden Wedding by J. Cogliandro Photography

Robin first met Andrew back in 2003 when he hired her as his paralegal. “I had no idea my future husband was right down the hall all those years,” says Robin, who would one day marry that charming attorney in the garden of the home she would share with him in the heart of Houston’s Museum District. On that wonderful day, the couple’s home provided the perfect backdrop to complement their nature-inspired wedding theme, where shades of coral and peach provided pops of color among the soft beige and ivory decor. Following the enchanted-garden ceremony, a cocktail hour on the pool terrace treated guests to fine wine, cocktails and hors d’oeuvre. The reception took place in the backyard underneath a tent covered with quince branches and hung with a chandelier draped with flowers in shades of peach, apricot and coral. Swooning already? Yeah, we thought so. Check out the decadent details for yourself in our amazing photos by J. Cogliandro Photography. Congrats and well wishes to the newlyweds!

Randall knew that the key to Astra’s heart was good food…though a pretty ring couldn’t hurt.

Perfectly personal details like DIY centerpieces, feminine touches of lace, splashes of pink, Mom’s precious pearls and some good ‘ol BBQ, reflected Astra’s laid-back, relaxed personality. And y’all know how we feel about cowboy boots on the b’maids. Congratulations, you two–wishing you a lifetime of love!
