Navy, Gold, Green & Pink Wedding

Katie and Patrick met at a mutual friend’s “The Office”-watching party while attending Oklahoma State University. A few study dates later, the pair became friends and remained close for three years through Katie’s graduation. It wasn’t until Patrick asked Katie to ring in the New Year with him in 2011 that the college buds became something more. Katie and Patrick dated long-distance for two years before Patrick proposed in a charming Kansas City bakery on a wintry December day: “It was an unforgettable moment in our lives and a very cherished memory for us both,” says the bride, who couldn’t believe her eyes when Patrick got down on one knee. On their wedding day, Katie walked down the aisle in a gorgeous Lazaro gown from Weddings by Debbie, while 200 family members and friends looked on. Lavish floral arrangements in ivory, light blue, and pale pink—inspired by the paintings of the bride’s late grandmother—and soft candlelight created an ethereal ambiance throughout the reception space. “It was an amazing, fun and romantic evening for all attending,” says Katie. “I could not have hoped for more perfect day!”

Blush & Champagne Wedding at Hotel Galvez

The love story of Jane and Travis began on a romantic sailboat ride out at sea. The pair, introduced by Travis’s sister-in-law, spent their first big date sailing on the Gulf of Mexico’s glistening waters—and as the bride says, “the rest is history.” On a special Memorial Day Weekend not too long after, Travis sailed Jane out to Redfish Island—where the groom’s grandparents had their first date over 60 years ago—to ask for her hand in marriage. “Of course I said yes, and when we finally made it to Galveston, our family was there waiting for us to celebrate,” recounts the bride. The couple naturally chose a nautical theme for their outdoor wedding and incorporated the symbol of an anchor in every aspect of the decor, from invitations (provided by Bering’s) to name cards. More than 200 guests gathered on the green lawn of Hotel Galvez and watched as Jane and Travis vowed their lives to one another beneath an arch of cherry blossoms, and then joined the newlyweds inside the stunning hotel for a candlelit dinner and dancing. Lovely blush and champagne roses completed each centerpiece for a look and feel of sheer elegance. “Just watching everyone really enjoy themselves made both of us so happy,” says Jane. “That was our goal for the evening.” Mission accomplished!

Romantic Wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th

“I work very long and exhausting days as a registered nurse. I told Casey that sometimes when I have a bad day, I just want to come home from work and for him to propose to make it all better. Casey did just that. I came home from work one day to rose petals and candles scattered throughout our house. He made my favorite meal: steak, Fleming’s style mac and cheese, asparagus and salad. The ring box was sitting in a container of my favorite popcorn that Casey ordered specially for me from Chicago. It was the most perfect evening,” recounts bride Tara. And so was their wedding at the Bell Tower on 34th. Tara and Casey described their wedding to be romantic, personal and fun for everyone to enjoy. The pair danced the night away with 240 of their nearest and dearest. The grandeur evening ended with late night bites from Whataburger (mmm…) for guests and a flutter fetti exit for the couple. Sounds like quite the celebration, right? Check out the lovely photos below and see for yourself! Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds! We wish you a lifetime of happiness.

Romantic Garden Wedding at Hotel Galvez

Daniel knew the moment he met Stephanie that there was something special about her; within a matter of months, the pair had become great friends. But when Stephanie moved to Mexico to study abroad, she assumed that she had “fallen off his radar,” and they lost touch. A few years later, when Stephanie was living in Houston as a teacher, the couple reconnected in a way that took Stephanie by surprise: “He would call and we would talk for hours,” recounts the bride. “So much time had passed that I was convinced we were going to pick up where we left off as friends, but I was wrong.” Turns out, Daniel had been in love with Stephanie all along, and was just waiting for the perfect opportunity to re-enter her life. The lovebirds tied the knot surrounded by 150 of their nearest and dearest in a beautiful garden ceremony at Hotel Galvez, followed by a romantic champagne brunch on the terrace. The day was made even more special by the presence of the bride’s father, a disabled Vietnam veteran, who was released from the hospital only days before the wedding: “My favorite moment was my dad walking me down the aisle as my mom held him up on his other side,” says Stephanie. “It was a true fairy tale—I married the man of my dreams and my dad was able to give me away.” We’re so happy for you, Daniel and Stephanie!
