Navy and Ivory Briscoe Manor Wedding by Lindsay Elizabeth Photography

What is it about dimpled beauties and fitness-related meet-cutes?? Even though Scott admits he “hated the challenges of a spin class” (um, yeah, been there), he figured strained muscles and spent lung capacity was worth it if it meant winning a “million-dollar smile” from the girl of his dreams—spin/cycling instructor Sarah. After forming a friendship and—our favorite part—falling in love, the two got engaged, in the spin studio where they first met (natch). “Briscoe Manor offered a distinctive, chic and truly Texas wedding venue with its limestone architecture and country setting among the pecan and oak trees,” Sarah tells us—the perfect spot to introduce Canadian-born Scott’s family to her native state. Her most memorable moments? “Getting to see Scott for the first time before the ceremony and spending special moments with my soon-to-be husband, and looking around at a room full of friends and family that we love so dearly. I especially enjoyed getting to introduce all of the Canadian guests to a true Texas-themed wedding!” And WE especially enjoy getting to introduce Sarah and Scott to YOU—with help from Lindsay Elizabeth’s ever lovely photos, of course!

Coral and Turquoise Brady’s Landing Wedding by Civic Photos

For his proposal to his beautiful Rachel, Brandon took her back to the karaoke bar where they’d first met, did a few of his best tunes…and then asked her to make beautiful music with him for the rest of their lives. Aww… To celebrate the couple’s June wedding, 200 friends and family members gathered at Brady’s Landing, where they enjoyed dining and dancing, surrounded by decor in a fresh, summery palette of coral and turquoise. While most brides might have an element or two of their wedding they might do differently, or a minor mishap they wished they’d been able to avoid, not so Houston bride Rachel: “I loved my wedding; everything was perfect,” she says. Big thanks to Civic Photos for the vintage-feel photos, and congrats to the beaming newlyweds!

Classic Winter Wedding at the Crystal Ballroom at The Rice

“We wanted a very classic winter wedding, and the historic Crystal Ballroom was perfect for this,” says Houston bride Ingrid of her wedding to her handsome groom George. The pair, who met online at eHarmony.com—“We had our first date a music festival at Discovery Green, met for dinner again the next night, and could not get enough of each other from then on,” Ingrid recounts—hosted 215 guests for an evening of ceremony and celebration, including all-night dancing to a full live band, and a gold, pewter and cream wedding color scheme that echoed December’s wintry hues. “We danced a well-rehearsed fox trot to ‘It Had To Be You’—our friends and family were very impressed by it. The band kept a full crowd on the dance floor and everyone (young and old) enjoyed it. Guests finally sent us on our way with white ecofetti that looked like snow, and the party continued at the pub next door.” Now that’s how to kick off a life of good times together! Big thanks to Blanca Duran for very pretty photos of this fabulous fete, and congratulations to Ingrid and George.

Fun, Relaxed, Dance-Fueled Houston Wedding by DC Stanley Photography

“After we got engaged, Eric told me that the only thing he wanted in our wedding was to have the Spazmatics play during the reception,” recounts bride Melissa. “I had no idea that band would shape our entire wedding.” That wedding started with a ceremony at the Houston Arboretum—“I love the idea of bringing our kids back to the exact spot we got married to have a picnic,” the bride says. Next, guests headed to Houston’s House of Blues for a fun, upbeat, joy-filled party featuring Southern comfort food, red velvet cake and tons of dancing. DC Stanley Photography’s photos of this event are nothing short of fantastic, but Melissa says the photographer’s talents go beyond just pointing and shooting. “David and his wife are an amazing team. I hate posed pictures and he does an amazing job of catching the moment without being intrusive. His work looks more like art then wedding photography. He was also extremely helpful when needed. My bustle kept falling out and he helped my bridesmaid fix it. He has been to a lot of weddings and has tons of knowledge. I am sure he could be a wedding planner if he wanted to.” Aww… how sweet is that? However, we do hope the Stanley duo keep taking gorgeous wedding photos, so we can keep showing them to you, our beloved Houston brides! Congratulations, Melissa and Eric, and thank you for sharing your very special day.

Purple, Silver and Bling Wedding at The Majestic Metro

“He said for about a year that he was going to marry me even though I was not even into him,” says recent Houston bride Amanda. “As it turns out, I ended up falling in love with him.” Which just goes to show you, it pays to keep an open heart. Are we right, ladies?? Amanda and persistent (and adorable) Jimmy tied the knot with a ceremony at the bride’s parents’ church—where, incidentally, the couple reconnected after having known each other in elementary school before the future groom and his family moved away—followed by a fabulous party at the historic Majestic Metro theater. Shades of deep purple, silver and cool white set the tone for the night, while crystals sparkled everywhere—on candelabras, napkin holders, and a gorgeous purple-banded, brooch-accented cake from Who Made The Cake. Photographer Robin Maxwell’s photos perfectly capture the sophisticated celebratory vibe of this cool Houston wedding. And the couple? So sweet. Congratulations, you two.
