Houston’s newest wedding venue, Westin Houston Medical Center, celebrated its grand opening in a grand way… by hosting a wedding contest where one lucky couple had the chance to win a full wedding experience valued at over $55,000! The Westin collaborated with a group of talented wedding professionals to provide the many services for the fabulous giveaway.
A true artist of natural light wedding photography (along with gorgeous, dramatic indoor wedding reception and ceremony photography), Amy Maddox documents that special “wedding glow” that’s unique to life’s most meaningful milestone celebration.
But she and second photographer Steven (aka Amy’s adorable husband!) do much more than that. By changing an angle ever so slightly, by stepping back…or focusing in…by bringing in a pop of color or setting a wedding detail against a visually intriguing backdrop, Amy and Steven capture the textural richness, intimate romance and intricate detail of the weddings they photograph.
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!
