DIY Wedding by Binford Creative Photography

Breanna and Corey’s love story started out with the perfect foundation…they were friends, ever since they had worked together at a local wine bar a few years back. However, when their careers went different ways, well…that’s when their love story really began. Breanna remembers the exact night Corey proposed. It was June 3, 2014. They decided they wanted to upgrade from apartment living to buying their first house in Houston. They had just spent a full day, with her dad’s assistance (shout out to dads for always helping out), moving their furniture to the new house. Corey was running a bar at the time and had to go to work that night, but absolutely insisted that Breanna wait up for him at the new house. Breanna recalls Corey repeating over and over, “DO NOT GO TO SLEEP, BABE!” However, she fell asleep anyway…but hey we’ve all done it : ) Corey got home at 3:00 am and immediately woke Breanna up—brave move waking up a sleeping beauty—but he said he had a surprise to celebrate their new place. He had glasses of Champagne ready to toast to their new home and their future, and with that, Corey asked Breanna to be his wife and stay in this home, and in his future, forever. (Okay, that’s a pretty darn sweet moment to wake up for!) Breanna says she “sure was awake after all of that!” The two had a simply gorgeous wedding filled with special DIY touches…Breanna’s mother did ALL of the flowers and decor! Breanna and her bridesmaids spent the day getting ready at the JW Marriott Houston Downtown before the nuptials began at a beautiful garden venue. She wore a stunning Enzoani lace fit and flare gown from Brickhouse Bridal down the aisle, which fit her perfectly. Binford Creative Photography did an impeccable job documenting Breanna and Corey’s day. We can’t stop gushing over these photos. Breanna and Corey, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Navy & Gold Wedding at Ashelynn Manor

A co-worker at a local YMCA (where Erica and Adam met for the first time—keep reading for the fairytale ending…) had said multiple times that the two were meant to be. She knew they would undoubtedly be the most beautiful couple and insisted that they had to get married…even though the two hadn’t even had their first shift together. Adam acted upon their matchmaking friend’s persistent advice and worked up the courage to talk to Erica…and the two have been inseparable ever since. Adam is a New York native and Erica always dreamed of visiting The Big Apple during a snowy winter. So they booked a trip for New Year’s, which of course made Erica suspicious that a proposal might be in the works. On their first night in the city, while posing for some photos in front of the beautifully lit Rockefeller tree, Adam popped the question! Erica remembers the moment like it was yesterday; the freezing weather, the incredible Rockefeller tree, and Adam wanting just one more photo. “So we took another and that’s when he got down on his knee.” Swoon. The Houston couple said “I do” with a romantic navy and gold wedding ceremony at the Ashelynn Manor Chapel, with a reception after at the venue’s Carriage House. The celebration was complete with friends and loved ones, and pretty, pretty floral designs provided by HEB Blooms. Erica and Adam remember their absolute favorite moment from the day, which was “when it was done and we were finally married! Now all that was left was to party!” And we totally agree. We wish this happy couple all the best and more.

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!
