Royal Blue, Green, Purple & Silver Wedding by Adam Nyholt Photographer

Not all love stories start off with instant attraction. Just ask Callie, who did not hit it off with Eric when they first met at McGrady’s Pub in Charlottesville, Virginia during the Georgia vs. Florida game. Since they were rooting for opposing teams, Callie was, naturally, NOT a fan of Eric. “I would visit Charlottesville occasionally and he would always come over and ask if I wanted to get a drink with him. I refused,” Eric’s future bride says. Although she consistently turned him down, Eric was determined to get her to go out with him. He eventually reached out through Facebook, which turned into phone calls, FaceTime chats and finally the first date. Which turned into the second date. Then the third, fourth…twenty-seventh, etc. Until that magical day when Callie walked down the aisle in a gorgeous lace Anna Maier gown from Joan Pillow Bridal Salon, accessorized with her mom’s veil, sister’s bridal sash and grandmother’s rosary in her bouquet. “Our wedding was exactly what we wanted,” recounts Callie. “It was such a wonderful feeling to look at each other, know that we were married and surrounded by so many people who love us.” It’s true. Persistence always pays off, right Eric? We couldn’t be happier for the couple, and we wish them a lifetime of happiness. Thanks Adam Nyholt for the lovely photos!

Blush, Champagne & Gray Wedding by J. Cogliandro Photography

It was fate when Maggie and Cory met by chance at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck back in 2012. They saw each other from across the room and instantly connected. A few days later Cory took Maggie out on a date and just knew this was it. After going on many picnic dates at Hermann Park, she had no idea that one day he was going to propose there as well. “I was not surprised when he picked me up with a bottle of wine and asked if I wanted to go to the park. After sitting by the reflecting pool, we visited the tree that we had our first picnic under. Cory told me this was the very spot that he fell in love with me,” recounts Maggie. He got down on one knee and you can guess what happened next. The pair was so inspired after their trip to Paris during Christmas, that they decided to have a French-themed celebration with heavy influence from their family history. Maggie incorporated her grandmother’s rosary in her bouquet and wore her godmother’s diamond bracelet, which beautifully accessorized her fit-and-flare Rivini gown from Mia Bridal Couture. “The church pews were lined with fresh flowers in handmade cones that were made from my grandmother’s sheet music collection when she was a piano teacher,” adds Maggie. We couldn’t be happier for these lovebirds and can’t wait for you to swoon over the photos from J. Cogliandro Photography. Feeling inspired? Go ahead and pin some photos and start planning your fabulous Houston wedding!

Gorgeous Fall Wedding at La Colombe d’Or

Stephanie and Josh met in what the bride says “was the most cliche way”: at work, near the water cooler. (You say cliche, we say CUTE.) The colleagues remained friends for a year and a half before they began dating, and only six months later, they were engaged to be married. “The proposal was private and personal, which suited us perfectly,” recounts Stephanie. “He beat me home from work and was waiting with our favorite bottle of wine, our song playing on the stereo and a speech that I honestly don’t remember!” Their November wedding began with a traditional Presbyterian ceremony, attended by 175 family members and friends, followed by a stunning reception at La Colombe d’Or. Blush and gold accents combined with soft white lighting set a romantic mood, while LG Entertainment kept the party going strong all evening long. Way to throw a beautiful wedding, Stephanie and Josh. We wish you all the best!

Blush, Ivory, Gold & Sage Wedding by D. Jones Photography

“Although I didn’t start off liking Jimmy (due to the fact that he was a minor league baseball player and I didn’t like athletes), I apparently was won over by his great dart skills,” says Houston bride Alex. The pair may have two different stories about how their love story began while they were interning for the Houston Texans, but they can both agree that, ultimately, they were inseparable. “Our wedding was a dream come true. We’ve never felt more loved or special,” recounts Alex. “Our officiant was Jimmy’s best friend, so that made the ceremony more personal. It was an incredible feeling.” We can’t begin to tell you how breathtaking Alex looked in her lace gown from Weddings by Debbie. We could go on and on, but we’ll let the couple’s beautiful photos from D. Jones Photography do the talking. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Navy, Gold, Green & Pink Wedding

Katie and Patrick met at a mutual friend’s “The Office”-watching party while attending Oklahoma State University. A few study dates later, the pair became friends and remained close for three years through Katie’s graduation. It wasn’t until Patrick asked Katie to ring in the New Year with him in 2011 that the college buds became something more. Katie and Patrick dated long-distance for two years before Patrick proposed in a charming Kansas City bakery on a wintry December day: “It was an unforgettable moment in our lives and a very cherished memory for us both,” says the bride, who couldn’t believe her eyes when Patrick got down on one knee. On their wedding day, Katie walked down the aisle in a gorgeous Lazaro gown from Weddings by Debbie, while 200 family members and friends looked on. Lavish floral arrangements in ivory, light blue, and pale pink—inspired by the paintings of the bride’s late grandmother—and soft candlelight created an ethereal ambiance throughout the reception space. “It was an amazing, fun and romantic evening for all attending,” says Katie. “I could not have hoped for more perfect day!”
