Blush, Ivory and Gold Wedding at the Bell Tower on 34th Street

Houston bride Meagan instantly fell in love with the grand Italian-villa-inspired architecture of The Bell Tower on 34th Street, which perfectly complemented her soft, romantic color palette of blush, ivory and gold. “I loved the beautiful carved-wood chapel doors, and had a vision of a grand entrance,” she says. “My fondest moment was when the bell tower rang, the doors opened and we locked eyes as I walked down the aisle.” Meagan wore a gorrrgeous drop-waist, lace bridal gown from Brickhouse Bridal with glittery gold Jimmy Choo pumps, of course. Swooning already? Yeah, we thought so. Just wait ’til you see the pics of the bouquet, centerpieces and OMG cake from Who Made The Cake! Congrats and best wishes, Meagan and JT!

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

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!
