Sweet Spring, Texas, June Wedding by Ama Photography & Cinema
 

Selling cell phones might not be the world’s most glamorous job, but it can pay off—with a husband, for instance! It was on the floor of a Sprint retail store where Gesselle met her beloved John, the man she’d eventually marry in a lovely June outdoor ceremony followed by a fun-filled dining-and-dancing reception where burlap, orchids and candlelight played against one another for a perfect rustic-elegant ambiance. Big thanks to Aisha Khan of Ama Photography & Cinema for the lovely photos, and our heartfelt best wishes to the newlyweds!

Eugenia Couture 2014 Bridal Collection
 

Simply gorgeous is how we’d describe the new 2014 bridal collection from the mother-daughter design team at Eugenia Couture. Starting with classic silhouettes, Eugenia Couture adds delicate bits of sparkle, diaphanous overlays and sheer-illusion touches, along with exquisite lace and sumptuous beading, for an array of wedding gowns that are just made (and made in the USA in a zero-waste process, at that!) for the modern bride. Though the closest you’ll find them to Houston is in Dallas, for NOW, we predict that demand for these beautiful wedding dresses will ensure that they find their way into a local salon soon enough. For now…feast your eyes!
