Relaxed Big Sky Barn Wedding By Civic Photos

True fact: Amy and Bryan met in elementary school and had their first date in 8th grade on Dec. 23, 2009 (they went to see “Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakquel”…awww). Eight years later, still completely smitten with his childhood sweetheart, Bryan proposed to Amy at Spring’s beloved Old Time Christmas Tree Farm, where he decorated one of the trees with photos from their courtship, and ornaments from their past adventures together. Their Big Sky Barn wedding, which took place, fittingly, during the holiday season, had a classic palette of navy, blush, pale blue and greenery, and was filled with personal touches, including Christmas Tree ornaments that did double duty as decor and “guestbook,” and music from the legendary Walt Disney World fireworks display (the bride and groom are big-time Disney fans). Taking full advantage of the gleaming wood surfaces and soaring windows of beautiful Big Sky Barn, the pair wed in the venue’s on-site chapel, surrounded by 175 loved ones. “I absolutely loved getting ready with my girls,” says Amy, who glowed gorgeously in a floral-applique Stella York gown from Parvani Vida. Also glowing: the bride’s words of praise for her longtime love Bryan, whom she credits with helping her keep on top of everything while planning their big day. We invite you to celebrate this lovely young couple, along with us, by scrolling through dreamy images from Civic Photos, which capture this Big Sky Barn wedding in all its warmth and wonder!

Intimate Or Opulent: 11 Houston Wedding Venues

Venue: The Astorian
One big question, two different vibes, so many Houston wedding venues. Should you go big, grand and glamorous, or keep it small, intimate and delicately detailed?

Within these two umbrella categories, there are, of course, countless personal interpretations. One couple’s big “luxury Houston wedding” may involve towering centerpieces, formal attire and live-band entertainment. For another couple, a grand, opulent wedding may entail aerial bartenders, ice-luge martinis and fireworks. On the flip side, one couple’s “intimate wedding” may be a small rustic affair, while another’s may feature a string quartet and garden ceremony, followed by private dining in a fine Houston restaurant. As you decide what kind of wedding atmosphere and experience will best fit your special day (and accommodate your wedding guest count and wedding budget), we invite you to check out these 11 Houston wedding venues and their unique offerings.
