You should trust your dad when he tells you he has the perfect guy in mind. Just ask Houston bride, Talia, whose dad set her up with Barry. “He took me to an Ethiopian restaurant, brought me flowers, opened doors… a total gentleman,” says Talia. Unfortunately she wasn’t ready to date him just yet. “Years later I couldn’t stop thinking about him. We reached out to each other on a few occasions, but were never able to meet. Finally, we were able to get together for a cup of coffee, and the rest was history,” adds Talia.
Ten years after their first date, Barry took Talia to the same Ethiopian restaurant where they first met. “After dinner he convinced me to go to the museum to check out a friend’s art show,” recounts Talia. He arranged for a friend to take photos at the Light Tunnel in the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston. “Once we arrived at the Light Tunnel, I realized no one else was there, and he was on one knee!” adds Talia.
Their wedding was exactly how they pictured it—unique, hints of art deco, and simply elegant. “Balushka, owner of Balushka Paper Floral Artistry, and I always talked about how she would decorate my wedding one day, and when the time came, she did a phenomenal job. She came up with the most gorgeous panels of handmade paper flowers in shades of blush, plum, ivory and gold for our backdrop,” says Talia.
We couldn’t be happier for these two. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds! We hope you enjoy the photos as much as we did.
