Former Texas A&M schoolmates Lauren and Rex met at a College Station bar, both there to watch Houston rapper Kirko Bangz perform. “Yes, it’s true,” the bride recounts, “nothing sets the mood more for falling in love than the sweet, romantic melodies, ‘Drank In My Cup’ and ‘Keep It Trill.'” Yet, fall in love they did, and in love they have stayed, Lauren praising Rex for “his ability to make everything in life fun,” and Rex noting “how easy everything is with her.” Rex proposed to Lauren in front of both of their families, so it’s only natural that family would play a central role in their fall 2019 blush and gold wedding at fairytale wedding setting Ashton Gardens West. From her processional down the aisle to the same music that had accompanied her mother’s own wedding processional, to the sleeve of her mother’s wedding dress that master florist Dream Bouquet used to wrap the bouquet, to the classic songs played at the reception, “The entire day was a constant reminder to us of the examples set before us by our parents, and the promises we were making to each other,” bride Lauren says. Please join us in wishing this gorgeous couple a lifetime of love! And please scroll down to see which Spotlight Houston Vendors made this classic blush and gold wedding the very picture of perfection. Click here to read the rest of this post »
