Sidney and Richard are living proof that “yes, you actually CAN find true love at a night club,” notes the bride. Their unexpected meet-cute one Saturday evening made quite the lasting impression, and Richard made sure to ask for Sidney’s phone number by the end of the night. In the months to follow, Sidney and Rick (as she calls him) left their nightclub days behind and discovered a mutual passion for health and fitness–and meanwhile, for each other. Says Sidney: “Despite having all odds stacked against us, we gave true love a shot on the dance floor and we couldn’t be any happier or healthier than we are today!” Less than two years later, Rick proposed in his driveway right after the couple had just returned home from an intense sweat session, but neither one cared: “As soon as Rick had the ring, he couldn’t wait to pop the question.” The two wed in an intimate ceremony attended by 100 close family members and friends, followed by a Chinese tea ceremony and dinner reception at the romantic Heather’s Glen. “Ours was truly a fairy tale wedding,” the couple agrees. Congrats, Sidney and Rick!

Brittney and Jeff grew up in the same town and even attended their high school’s Homecoming together as friends back in 2002, but it wasn’t until much later that the pair officially became a couple. On a trip to San Francisco with Brittney’s parents, Jeff planned a night to remember for his love when he proposed in front of the Golden Gate Bridge on their way to dinner: “The best part was that the Uber driver had my phone and was able to capture the entire thing,” notes Brittney. Surrounded by 250 of their closest loved ones, the pair tied the knot in a formal Methodist ceremony and then gathered for hors d’oeuvre and dancing at the glamorous Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa. Metallic hues of gold, bronze and gunmetal gray gave the “lounge”-styled room a fabulously futuristic flair, a live blues band entertained the crowd and Susie’s Cakes & Confections provided a three-tier monogrammed cake for guests to enjoy before hitting the dance floor. The bride’s favorite part of the evening, however, “was when the confetti cannons went off on the dance floor while everyone was dancing and having a good time.” Congratulations, Brittney and Jeff!
