A rustic-elegant Texas barn wedding with a romantic palette of green, blush and burgundy, for an adorable couple who first met in sixth grade?? Yes, please! We’re delighted to present to y’all Alexis and Matthew, who celebrated their nuptials on a sweet spring day at a fancied-up Montgomery barn in the presence of 120 loved ones. There’s so much to love about this couple and their beautiful wedding (made exponentially more beautiful by League City-based Haute Flowers & Events, who provided flowers and decor for the occasion). From the vintage-furniture touches, to the glittering accents of gold, to the “string lights and candles everywhere,” the bride says. Please join us in wishing Alexis and Matthew congratulations, and a life filled with love, sunshine and…outdoor adventures (they both love hiking, and Matthew proposed at the bottom of a waterfall!!).

White, Green & Peach Wedding at Moffitt Oaks by Steve Lee Photography

It’s a pretty big deal for a Texan to trade in big, bright stars for concrete jungle of New York City. However, Sae decided to take on the challenge, and made the move to NYC to pursue a career practicing law…and to the greatest future he never saw coming. One fateful day, Tony, Sae’s friend, made lunch plans in the city. Tony decided to bring along his friend, Jody. Throughout lunch, Sae noticed “Jody’s hand gestures, her speech patterns, her aura—all intriguing.” He was absolutely mesmerized by how confident she was. However, the moment was fleeting…Jody needed to be at the airport for a flight. She was heading back to Texas and Sae was convinced he would never see her again. But a year down the road (or pavement, if you will), Sae felt Texas calling his name and he made the decision to give up his New York lifestyle. He ended up moving into Tony’s place—a great move on his part because Tony’s girlfriend was an active alum for the same sorority as Jody! It wasn’t long before an alumni dinner party brought him face to face with…the girl he never thought he would see again. Preparing himself to make a move, Sae recalls, “I was hyping myself up for an immeasurable feat.” While at the table, everyone began talking about smartphones and comparing features of each.  Sae saw his opportunity and seized it. “I slyly went around the table asking to examine each phone in faux-awe. When Jody’s phone landed in my hands, I surreptitiously, like an undercover agent, input my number and called myself. BINGO, got her number.” Smooth move—guys, take notes. The two began texting, getting to know each other more and over the next four years, they fell madly in love. However, Sae wanted the proposal to be mysterious and a total surprise. In a journal, he began to make a list of all the unique things he loved about Jody. Each page became a special part of her character. Sae presented Jody with the journal, and as she turned the pages, her smile grew bigger and bigger… until she arrived at the final page, which read, “Will you marry me?” On bended knee, Sae repeated his written question out loud and Jody said, “Yes!” Their wedding vision came to life with a rustic-chic lakeside ceremony at Moffitt Oaks, followed by an elegant yet easygoing barn reception. The couple insisted upon a unique celebration—one they had talked about for so long—complete with DIY touches everywhere. Jody was the picture of relaxed glamour as she walked down the aisle to her forever love in a Blue by Enzoani fit-and-flare gown from Weddings by Debbie. We couldn’t be happier that Jody and Sae’s wedding dreams came true. Thank you for these wonderful photos, Steve Lee Photography!
