Blush & Champagne Great Gatsby Wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th

Wednesday, November 22nd, 2017

Sparks flew instantly when Clara and Marko met one fateful night at a favorite Woodlands watering hole. The pair were so captivated by each other, in fact, that an impromptu first date followed at a local diner, as soon as the bar closed for the night. Over bacon and coffee, Clara knew she found someone special, and soon the lovebirds were traveling the world together. As for Marko’s proposal, spontaneity sparked the moment: “One night, when we were in our pajamas, eating junk food and watching Disney movies, it felt right, and I got on one knee, right then and there,” he says. The couple had their ceremony and reception at The Bell Tower on 34th, where an elegant, villa-like atmosphere evoked the couple’s favorite book, F. Scott Fitzgerald’s “The Great Gatsby.” Notes Clara: “My favorite moment was my entrance down the grand staircase, and seeing the love of my life waiting at the end of the long walkway for me.” Our favorite moment? That’d have to be…all of the ones featured in this here blog post!

Jewel-Tone Art Deco Wedding by Civic Photos

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

Faye and Oussama were connected before they ever met—their families were long-time friends and the pair knew of each other but never spoke until the summer of 2013 when they both happened to be in Lebanon visiting family. “We ran into each other at the beach and instantly felt a connection. We spent the entire week together, and hit it off! Oussama and I ended up dating each other long distance for almost two years,” says Faye.

Faye gave us all the deets on how Oussama popped the question: “It was our two-year anniversary. After dinner, we went home, and once I walked in I noticed one of the rooms had lights strung all over the walls and candles everywhere. Oussama then handed me a Starbucks cup with my favorite coffee cup that said, ‘Will you marry me?’”

Blush, Gold and Ivory 1920’s Inspired Wedding with Bonus Fake-Audition Proposal Story!

Friday, August 15th, 2014

Oooo, honey, you KNOW how much we love a good “proposal deception” story…and Ryan popping the question to Melissa is one of the best we’ve heard! “My sister, who is an aspiring actress, will often go on auditions and invite me (the bride) along with her. I always go along for support, so when she invited me to come along to an audition for an independent film, I did not hesitate. The audition was at Hotel Derek, there were signs welcoming those auditioning, sign-up sheets, and she was even assigned a number. I prayed with her in the lobby and all of the staff were rooting for her! She was super nervous so she asked if I could come back and actually watch her audition. When we were given the OK, I entered the room, and saw Ryan standing there all dressed up while I stood there confused. My sister was gone, it was only us and he got on one knee. There were candles and rose petals all around. It was perfect!” Ah, the old sibling’s-fake-film-audition ruse…gets ’em every time. Even cuter? “Our families were in another room watching it all happen on Skype.” Aww. The pair, who met four years ago while both working as nurses on the same Houston Medical Center unit and quickly became inseparable, tied the knot this past spring, with a breathtakingly beautiful 1920s-inspired wedding, decorated in fine vintage fashion by Houston fave Darryl & Co. We’re so grateful to this adorable pair for sharing their love with all of us, and all y’all…congratulations, Melissa and Ryan!
