Alexis got engaged to her high school sweetheart, soul mate, best friend, and spiritual partner Trevor after an unexpected proposal. After picking Alexis up from a trip to the ER, Trevor asked if she still wanted to go out for date night. Never one to turn down a steak dinner, Alexis said yes and went to get ready. “When Alexis came out of my room, the balcony doors were open and rose petals and lights were everywhere,” recalls Trevor. After a heartfelt speech and loads of happy tears, Trevor asked Alexis to be his wife. “The setting of the apartment is especially special because not only was it romantic and intimate, but it was the first place we really experienced dating in the same city after being long distance for 4 years.”

The couple wed at The Astorian in a “very classic but ethereal” ceremony, under a custom altar built by the groom. Cascading greenery, lush white floral arrangements and floating candles filled the industrial-chic venue. Alexis recounts loving the hanging vines over the monogrammed dance floor while her favorite moments were “My first touch and prayer with my husband and my first look with my dad.”

We’re delighted to share with you this ethereal wedding at The Astorian, gorgeously captured by Houston wedding photographer Ama By Aisha. Congratulations, Alexis & Trevor!
