“Classy and simple” is how bride Mary describes her Petroleum Club wedding to Michael: “blush, whites, gold…and lots of greenery!” Before the couple’s downtown Houston celebration, Mary, a registered nurse, and Michael, a global accounts manager, said their vows in a Catholic church ceremony, the bride radiant in a sparkling, embellished, sweetheart-neckline gown from Pronovias. And before that, the pair had a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony in the morning, where the groom arrived at the bride’s family home bearing gifts and money, to formally ask for her hand in marriage. Their Petroleum Club wedding reception was all about FUN, from the live band to the photo-booth hijinks to the delightful donut wall (a nod to Mary’s all-time favorite treat).

Adrianne and Brian’s fall wedding celebration at lovely, leisurely Pine Forest Country Club was the perfect reflection of their relationship, in its beauty, ease and joy. The pair met on Match.com, had their first date at a Fort Worth pub, and got engaged after cooking dinner together one evening at Brian’s apartment. For their October nuptials, the bride wore her mother’s wedding dress, which had been handmade by Adrianne’s grandmother. Radiant in the fall day’s natural sunlight, Adrianne joined Brian for photographs on the lush, green grounds of Pine Forest Country Club. The newlyweds joined 150 friends and family members for a relaxing celebration in the club’s light-filled ballroom, surrounded by roses, hydrangeas, greenery and “a touch of peach stock,” the bride notes. “The food was delicious,” Adrianne says of the club’s renowned culinary offerings. She adds that walking down the aisle at her church ceremony, and dancing to the evening’s playlist of pop and country tunes (and especially her first dance with groom Brian) are among her most cherished memories of her Houston fall wedding. Congratulations to the newlyweds!  Click here to read the rest of this post »

Blue And Purple DIY Wedding At 15 Acres

When it came time for Taylor to propose to his college sweetheart, Catherine, he did what smart-and-smitten guys do in these circumstances: He enlisted the help of Catherine’s best friend. Together, the co-conspirators arranged to have Taylor waiting in an exam room at the veterinary clinic where Catherine works as a vet tech. “My coworkers came and told me that a client had requested me for a tech appointment, and that they were waiting for me in room 4,” the bride recounts. “When I went in, I was shocked to see Taylor in there, down on one knee, and a wood sign around his dog’s neck that read, ‘Will you marry my daddy?’ Little did I know that it was being filmed the whole time, and my coworkers were watching in another room!” For their fall wedding, the couple chose the beautiful natural setting of 15 Acres, a contemporary destination-style wedding venue located under an hour’s drive from Houston in Hockley, Texas. The bride planned her DIY wedding, with help from family and bridesmaids. Click here to read the rest of this post »
