Hotel Galvez Wedding By Kelli Durham Photography

“Austin and I went to the same elementary school, but being in different grades, we didn’t know each other well,” says bride Emily. But, fatefully it turns out, their mothers became close friends in recent years, and Austin’s mom invited Emily’s family to attend her 93-year-old uncle’s wedding, at her house, to his 84-year-old girlfriend (!!). Emily attended the nuptial celebration, and, well…who wouldn’t be prompted to fall in love in the presence of such a wedding! For the couple’s own marriage celebration, Galveston was a natural choice: “Both of us have over 100 years of family connections to the island,” Emily explains, noting that her grandparents had their own wedding reception at Hotel Galvez & Spa (Austin and Emily’s choice of venue), in 1946. Their Catholic ceremony included a special message imparted by Pope Francis on how to love one another during marriage, which Emily counts as a highlight of their wedding day. For their reception, the hotel’s famed Music Hall was decorated with lush flowers in shades of blush and ivory, and tabletop decor featuring pops of midnight blue and sparkling gold. Enjoy this peek into the pair’s classic, elegant Texas wedding celebration, through photos by Houston’s immensely talented Kelli Durham, and join us in wishing these two a lifetime of love and happiness!

We’re delighted to present to y’all Alexis and Matthew, who celebrated their nuptials on a sweet spring day at a fancied-up Montgomery barn in the presence of 120 loved ones. There’s so much to love about this couple and their beautiful wedding (made exponentially more beautiful by League City-based Haute Flowers & Events, who provided flowers and decor for the occasion). From the vintage-furniture touches, to the glittering accents of gold, to the “string lights and candles everywhere,” the bride says. Please join us in wishing Alexis and Matthew congratulations, and a life filled with love, sunshine and…outdoor adventures (they both love hiking, and Matthew proposed at the bottom of a waterfall!!).

Vewiser, who met Tiesha while the two were attending Lamar University, used a trip to Disney World to set the backdrop for his creative proposal. On New Year’s Day, after a visit to the Florida theme park, Vewiser presented his beloved with a photo album filled with pics from their trip…with one very special addition on the last page: a photo of an engagement ring. “He immediately got down on one knee and expressed his love for me, and how our love has grown over the years,” notes the bride. The pair sealed the deal in front of 240 friends and family with a gorgeous boho chic wedding designed and decorated by Plants N’ Petals. The Houston floral firm brought Tiesha’s vision of vivid hues and flower crowns to life. “I wanted to use bright colors for the flower arrangements and not the typical ‘wedding colors,'” the bride says. “We both agreed bright colors matched our relationship and vivid personalities so we wanted to incorporate that in our wedding.” In addition to the fabulous decor, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed delicious offerings from Houston’s Café Natalie Catering which included chicken parmesan, salmon, roasted vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes. After a night of dancing and fun, the festivities ended off with an incredible fireworks display. “Our wedding was everything we wanted and more, truly a blessing from God and a dream come true!”

Jaclyn and Chris’ simple yet elegant vintage wedding is giving us all the feels. With divine blush and ivory florals from Haute Flowers & Events, rose-gold accents and tons of natural lighting, the pair gave an airy modern touch to their vintage wedding theme. “The exposed brick, chandeliers and vintage mirrors on site were perfect for that antique vibe I was looking for,” say the bride. And Jaclyn absolutely glowed in her diaphanous Maggie Sottero gown. Following a sweet ceremony, 100 close friends and family joined the new Mr. and Mrs. for a charming tented garden reception. As a unique personal touch to end out the night, the couple took a Star Wars-inspired exit with a lightsaber salute from guests! “Aside from all the sparkles, details and decor, marrying Chris was the absolute best moment of all.” Aww, a big congratulations to this lovely couple!

Elegant Spring Wedding At The Astorian

After meeting through mutual friends, Michael and Kelley found themselves smitten with each other, right from the get-go. Their connection soon turned into romance, and after five happy years, Michael decided it was time to make things official. One fateful day after brunch, Michael and Kelley took their dog, Dunkin, out for a walk…which ultimately turned into a memory Kelley will always cherish, after Kelley noticed a pink heart tag on the dog’s collar that read, “Mom, can we keep him?” and on the other side, “Will you marry me?” OK, guys, how sweet is that? Michael’s creative proposal worked, and the following May, Kelley and Michael tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at the same church where the bride’s parents had been married. The pair’s spring Astorian wedding reception had it all, from the elegant decor and the spectacular city view, to fantastic entertainment and exquisite food. Their 275 guests were treated to the sublime cuisine of Cordúa Catering. “Cordúa Catering knocked it out of the park,” notes the bride. “They provided the traditional carving station with some fun, modern options like the Mac & Cheese Bar, the Raw Seafood Bar, and a Salad Wall.” Yum! Yet the best moment for Kelley and Michael was “…The Astorian’s view of the sunset on downtown Houston. It was breathtaking and a moment we will never forget!” Congratulations to you both!
