What started as a casual friendship between college classmates Silvia and Travis developed into a sweet romance. Following a romantic proposal at Gerald D. Hine’s Waterwall, Silvia and Travis tied the knot in a modern al fresco ceremony at 15 Acres on November 7th, 2020. The bride notes, “The reason we fell in love with 15 Acres was because of the modern architecture since a lot of the venues in Texas had more of a rustic feel.” 

The celebration moved indoors to the venue’s spacious and airy ballroom for a “clean and modern” reception.  Delicate hydrangea centerpieces, lush greenery, and metallic blue linens complimented the ballroom’s blank-slate interior. Silvia’s treasured memory from the modern silver and blue wedding? “The last dance. It was a very intimate moment.” The memorable evening concluded with the newlyweds exiting beneath an arch of sparklers, before making their grand getaway in 15 Acres’ vintage 1936 Roadster.

Allie, an elementary school teacher, and Adam, a marine corps officer, met in high school when Adam played football and Allie was the cheerleader assigned to make him treats on game day. They officially started dating before Adam graduated and continued to be smitten with each other while attending Texas A&M University. Adam planned the perfect proposal with the help of Allie’s family. He popped the question to Allie on a platform at her family’s ranch, overlooking a bluff, as Allie’s grandfather hid in a deer blind to capture it all on camera!

For their summer wedding, the couple exchanged vows in a traditional ivory and blush church ceremony. Adam’s favorite moment was his first glimpse of his bride when the church doors opened. The decor for their reception at Big Sky Barn continued the timeless theme with lush flowers in shades of blush, light pink and ivory. Notes Allie: “Big Sky Barn has a sophisticated farmhouse feel which we complemented with neutral flowers and decor.” The 300+ guests enjoyed a delectable plated dinner of grilled petite filet and pollo Azteca, followed by a classic white wedding cake, a chocolate Aggie themed groom’s cake, and mini Boston cream pies (inspired by Adam’s mom who passed away in 2015) for dessert. After dinner, the celebration moved to the dance floor where the DJ had guests dancing until the wee hours of the night! “Our wedding planner asked if we were ready to go, but the dance floor was full and everyone was having such a great time that we decided to extend the reception for another 30 minutes,” says the bride.

We’re so happy to feature this young Houston couple and their gorgeous blush and ivory summer wedding at Big Sky Barn. Congratulations, Allie & Adam!

Church brought Lauren, an introvert, and Paul, an extrovert, together. A romantic proposal while hiking up Enchanted Rock, during which the bride jokes they were “Sharing puns about getting an ‘enchanted rock’ on Enchanted Rock,” sealed their relationship. “I knew from the moment Paul gave me that side hug over two years ago that we were meant for each other. I am so grateful to call him mine for the rest of our lives!” As Lauren and Paul set out to plan their wedding, the couple faced an unexpected obstacle on the road to their wedding day: the Coronavirus pandemic. After having to cancel their original church and reception venue, all hope seemed lost until Paul called his step-grandfather, who had built a church in Galveston over 40 years ago. ”He graciously opened the doors of his church for us and also officiated our wedding,” says Lauren. From there a new celebration was planned and after a whirlwind three weeks of re-planning, the couple’s dream Houston wedding became a Galveston wedding reality.

At last, Lauren and Paul pledged their love amidst 70 guests. “Even with six feet spacing between them, our guests felt near to our hearts,” says the bride. The intimate celebration continued at Hotel Galvez & Spa’s Music Hall for a sunny afternoon reception. The decor was soft and elegant, with a delicate palette of sage, pink, peach and cream. Notes the bride: “The bright tropical landscape with the classic vintage architecture was a gorgeous backdrop for a day that Paul and I will never forget.” After heartfelt speeches and dining on filet mignon with roasted asparagus, the newlyweds made their grand exit along the Seawall at sunset. “Although our wedding ended up being nothing like our original plan, it was a beautiful, joyful day.”

We’re so happy that everything worked out for newlyweds Lauren and Paul and delighted to share their elegant and intimate daytime wedding at Hotel Galvez & Spa. Congratulations, Lauren & Paul!
