Romantic Wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th

Tuesday, January 5th, 2016

“I work very long and exhausting days as a registered nurse. I told Casey that sometimes when I have a bad day, I just want to come home from work and for him to propose to make it all better. Casey did just that. I came home from work one day to rose petals and candles scattered throughout our house. He made my favorite meal: steak, Fleming’s style mac and cheese, asparagus and salad. The ring box was sitting in a container of my favorite popcorn that Casey ordered specially for me from Chicago. It was the most perfect evening,” recounts bride Tara. And so was their wedding at the Bell Tower on 34th. Tara and Casey described their wedding to be romantic, personal and fun for everyone to enjoy. The pair danced the night away with 240 of their nearest and dearest. The grandeur evening ended with late night bites from Whataburger (mmm…) for guests and a flutter fetti exit for the couple. Sounds like quite the celebration, right? Check out the lovely photos below and see for yourself! Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds! We wish you a lifetime of happiness.

Romantic Garden Wedding at Hotel Galvez

Wednesday, December 30th, 2015

Daniel knew the moment he met Stephanie that there was something special about her; within a matter of months, the pair had become great friends. But when Stephanie moved to Mexico to study abroad, she assumed that she had “fallen off his radar,” and they lost touch. A few years later, when Stephanie was living in Houston as a teacher, the couple reconnected in a way that took Stephanie by surprise: “He would call and we would talk for hours,” recounts the bride. “So much time had passed that I was convinced we were going to pick up where we left off as friends, but I was wrong.” Turns out, Daniel had been in love with Stephanie all along, and was just waiting for the perfect opportunity to re-enter her life. The lovebirds tied the knot surrounded by 150 of their nearest and dearest in a beautiful garden ceremony at Hotel Galvez, followed by a romantic champagne brunch on the terrace. The day was made even more special by the presence of the bride’s father, a disabled Vietnam veteran, who was released from the hospital only days before the wedding: “My favorite moment was my dad walking me down the aisle as my mom held him up on his other side,” says Stephanie. “It was a true fairy tale—I married the man of my dreams and my dad was able to give me away.” We’re so happy for you, Daniel and Stephanie!

Chic Ivory, Gold & Blush Wedding at The Houston Club by Civic Photos

Monday, December 28th, 2015

You know the feels you get when you meet someone for the first time but it feels like you’ve known them forever? That’s the one. Just ask Houston bride Shell who immediately hit it off with Michael the minute they met. A year later Michael got down on one knee at the top of the hill at Gardner State Park and you can guess the rest. Their super chic Houston Club wedding gave us all the feels and are sure you’ll be feeling them, too. We’ll let the lovely pictures courtesy of Civic Photos do the rest of the talking. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Winter Wonderland Wedding at Heather’s Glen

Friday, December 25th, 2015

What happens when a Houston bride wants a winter wonderland wedding? She makes it happen! Kaylin took her ideas from Pinterest, created all of the decor herself and became the queen of DIY. “I cut down tallow trees from my mom’s property and spray painted all of them white and threw on epsom salts for some shimmer. I used 14 of them to line the chapel aisle so that it looked like I was walking through a winter wonderland,” she says. Favorite moment? “While I was walking down the aisle and saw Michael’s face…it made all the hard work worth it.” See all of our favorite DIY moments from Kaylin and Michael’s winter affair in the lovely photos below!

Blush, White & Gold Wedding by D. Jones Photography

Monday, December 21st, 2015

Incorporating Persian culture in the wedding ceremony was very important to Houston bride Ametis. “Plants N’ Petals took my ideas and created a fairytale that came to life. My vision was to create a romantic feel with a neutral color palette of white, gold and blush throughout the ceremony and reception. It was more beautiful than I could have imagined,” she says. Favorite moments? “Chris and I wanted to be surrounded by our family and close friends to celebrate our special day. We loved being able to spend time with those who traveled from long distances for such a joyous occasion,” she adds. Thanks D. Jones Photography for the lovely pics that have us swooning over every detail. We promise you will, too. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!
