White & Sage Green Spring Wedding

Joanna met Shane at their freshman college orientation, quickly sparking a friendship during tutoring sessions for chemistry class (wink, wink). However, they didn’t have their first date until junior year, on Valentine’s Day. “I suppose when you wait that long for a date, you have to go BIG or go home!” the bride says. Just one week after graduating, Shane popped the question while on a hiking trip with Joanna. A custom engagement ring made for a truly unforgettable graduation gift. The ceremony took place at Ashton Gardens in the soft glow of the glass-enclosed chapel. There, the pair exchanged personal written vows in front of 155 guests. The celebration continued in Ashton Gardens’ timeless ballroom, with a feast featuring giant coconut shrimp and, ’cause this here is Texas, y’all, succulent steak. Joanna and Shane ended the night amidst a throng of bubbles for a magical exit. Best wishes to you guys as you start a new adventure together!

Coral, Gold, & Blush College Station Wedding

College is a time for growth preparation for life as an adult. For Heather and Nick, it also provided their chance encounter. Meeting at Texas A&M’s “Fish Camp” orientation program, the two began a sweet romance. During Heather’s senior year of college, while she worked in Arizona for six weeks Nick came to visit her and took her on a gorgeous hike through the Grand Canyon. With the breath-taking view as a backdrop, Nick popped the question. “With tears already streaming down my face, my exact words were ‘YES, but there’s nothing in the box.'” Startled by her response, Nick began searching for the ring and thankfully found it next to him, and (shaking a little), slid it onto her finger. “I was laughing and crying at the same time,” Heather says. The couple decided to take their nuptials back to the place where they first met, and exchanged vows at Peach Creek Ranch in College Station. With its rustic charm, the barn house, surrounded by cozy cottages, provided them with their own slice of Heaven for the day. Congratulations, Heather and Nick, on finding your forever love!

Blush & Champagne Great Gatsby Wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th

Sparks flew instantly when Clara and Marko met one fateful night at a favorite Woodlands watering hole. The pair were so captivated by each other, in fact, that an impromptu first date followed at a local diner, as soon as the bar closed for the night. Over bacon and coffee, Clara knew she found someone special, and soon the lovebirds were traveling the world together. As for Marko’s proposal, spontaneity sparked the moment: “One night, when we were in our pajamas, eating junk food and watching Disney movies, it felt right, and I got on one knee, right then and there,” he says. The couple had their ceremony and reception at The Bell Tower on 34th, where an elegant, villa-like atmosphere evoked the couple’s favorite book, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby.” Notes Clara: “My favorite moment was my entrance down the grand staircase, and seeing the love of my life waiting at the end of the long walkway for me.” Our favorite moment? That’d have to be…all of the ones featured in this here blog post!
