Emily and Nicolas met when Nicolas was overseeing a soccer league and training the kids Emily was a nanny to. He was known as the “Hot Cuban Soccer Coach” and she was called “Romper Girl” because Emily started dressing cuter in hopes of Nicolas noticing her…and it worked! “I knew from almost the first moment that he would be my husband.” On Sept. 10, 2019, Nicolas proposed to Emily with a beautiful custom designed oval solitaire ring on a beach in Costa Maya in the presence of his family.
Emily, being a fabulous wedding photographer, has seen countless variations of color palettes, themes and ideas, so for her very own wedding she notes, “I wanted to mix in the slightest bit of boho in our otherwise modern and simplistic wedding theme. We ended up with touches of black to contrast the neutrals, white, champagne and blush.” The couple said their vows amidst 80 loved ones in an intimate al fresco ceremony before commencing with a joyous indoor reception. The biggest obstacle the couple faced while planning their fall wedding was “Just trying to make sure that, even during Covid, we were being as safe as possible, but still got to have the wedding of our dreams. It was so tiring planning the wedding, but when the wedding day finally came, none of it mattered and it was the most beautiful and perfect day!”

“Weston proposed in Brooklyn overlooking the water with the NYC skyline in the background,” remembers bride Liles. “It was absolutely breathtaking.” After finding inspiration within the pages of Weddings in Houston magazine, Liles planned a wedding that was both a “fun and memorable” affair with a “romantic” theme. “Our venue was beautiful without any decor, but I knew I wanted to dress it up in a big way for our day,” says the bride who describes a ballroom filled with greenery and colorful florals in a stunning palette of mauve, blush, and creams.
The celebration included personal touches such as a live painter, custom cocktail napkins to include their pets, with cute sayings: “Raise the woof” “Guard your drink” “Purr me another” and “Hightail it to the dance floor” and Weston playing “Tiny Dancer” by Elton John with the band on stage. The bride adds, “We also incorporated some very non traditional aspects—I had a Bridesman and Weston had a Best Woman.” Photographer Amy Maddox expertly captured the celebration through her light and airy photography style. “Everyone has asked us what our favorite part about our wedding was, but truly the whole day was just the best day ever. All of it coming together the way I’d very thoughtfully planned was so awesome!”

You can’t spell spouse without OU! College sweethearts Nicole and Braden met at the University of Oklahoma and sooner or later they were engaged there as well. Braden proposed to Nicole by cementing a paver at the spot, where the two fell in love on campus, with the words “Will you marry me.” Nicole was left speechless and mustered up the courage to say the most important word of all, “Yes!”
Following a traditional church ceremony on January 25, 2020, the couple joined 263 loved ones atThe Woodlands Country Club; an elegant venue with stunning golf course views. The venue was transformed into a timeless, candlelit celebration with lush white floral decor and pillar candles that illuminated the room. The magical night continued with a delectable dinner catered by The Woodlands Country Club and a heartfelt speech made by the bride’s father. Among the bride’s most cherished moments of the day? “Getting ready with my bridesmaids at my family home surrounded by all the generations of girls in my family and friends.”
Anna had been dreaming of her wedding day since she was a little girl so when Jack, her college sweetheart, proposed she was looking forward to every aspect of the planning process…but then the global pandemic hit and the wedding had to be postponed. “Instead of worrying about napkin colors and floral arrangements, I was filling hand sanitizer bottles and making sure each table was spaced 6 feet apart,” says the bride. Fortunately, love conquered all, and the wedding day Anna dreamed about came to life at Iron Manor. “We wanted an atmosphere that represented both of our personalities—the industrial yet avant-garde ambiance of the Iron Manor did just that,” notes the bride. “From the venue’s vaulted ceilings and extravagant chandeliers to the breathtaking florals, every detail of our day was truly perfect.”
The couple pledged their love in Iron Manor’s grand Iron Chapel amidst 235 of their loved ones. The reception décor was modern and elegant with a romantic color palette of blush, burgundy and gold. A unique and personal touch was a scroll that flowed off the cake table with hand-scripted lyrics of the song from the couple’s first date and dance. “For Jack and me to say that we were on cloud nine at our wedding would be an understatement — we were truly #OnCloudShine thanks to our amazing vendors, venue and coordinators, and supportive loved ones.”
