Jennifer & Mitchell’s Let-Your-Hair-Down Majestic Metro Wedding

The day after he met Jennifer at an Armadillo Palace show in 2005, Mitchell told his mom, “I met my future wife last night.” And dang if he wasn’t RIGHT. Six years to the day they started dating, the pair tied the knot, with a ceremony at Christ Church Cathedral followed by a high-energy, high-style reception at the ultra-cool Majestic Metro—the groom’s venue choice, incidentally, which he picked immediately upon spotting it in the pages of Weddings in Houston (if you heard the “toot-toot,” that was our own horn, btw).

There are so many things we love about this wedding, but let’s just start with bride Jennifer, who left those long, flowing locks down for her big day…so pretty! Especially with her Kenneth Pool gown from Mia Bridal Couture and delectable blue Manolo Blahnik shoes, dontcha think? We’ve also saved a swoon or two for those gorgeous purple-pink-and-peacock-feather florals by Darryl & Co., and that to-die-for dessert table—a perfect accompaniment to the couple’s Who Made the Cake cake. “I purchased the cake stands from a company called Tiers of Joy,” Jennifer told us. “I wanted that romantic look, but with lots of bling, so when I saw these I HAD to buy them!!” Yes, you did, Jennifer.

And if you’re thinking that adorable flower girl’s orchid purse looks familiar, you’re right.

Big thanks to photographer Chris Wineinger for his great pics of this fabulous, fun-filled wedding. As for Mitchell, who apparently still has Jennifer’s number in his phone under “future wife,” you may want to edit that contact, mister. Or not. It is pretty darn cute. Congrats, you two, and happiest wishes to you!
