“Classy and simple” is how bride Mary describes her Petroleum Club wedding to Michael: “blush, whites, gold…and lots of greenery!” Before the couple’s downtown Houston celebration, Mary, a registered nurse, and Michael, a global accounts manager, said their vows in a Catholic church ceremony, the bride radiant in a sparkling, embellished, sweetheart-neckline gown from Pronovias. And before that, the pair had a traditional Vietnamese tea ceremony in the morning, where the groom arrived at the bride’s family home bearing gifts and money, to formally ask for her hand in marriage. Their Petroleum Club wedding reception was all about FUN, from the live band to the photo-booth hijinks to the delightful donut wall (a nod to Mary’s all-time favorite treat).Click here to read the rest of this post »
We love it when a Houston bride tells us that the absolute most difficult challenge in preparing for her wedding was “waiting for the day to finally come.” We should all be so fortunate!!
For Emily and Kyle, who met at church in 7th grade, the ease of planning their wedding started with one excellent choice: Picking The Gallery as their Houston wedding venue. “I wanted a very organic and romantic feel,” Emily says. And The Gallery, with its ivy-covered walls, burbling fountain and rustic wood accents, was the perfect backdrop for her vision of relaxed, joyful, green, blush and ivory wedding.

They both love tropical fruit, coconut water and spending their weekends cooking, and doing bible education work. They both name kindness and dedication to family as the qualities they love most in each other. And on one fine spring day, at a castle-like Houston wedding venue, Lisa and Melbon both said “I do,” in front of 100 close friends and family members. Their wedding celebration, which incorporated the couple’s Caribbean, Portuguese and Indian cultures, surrounded gathered guests with beautiful, larger-than-life white, blush and peach flower arrangements and tons of candles, courtesy of Houston floral design firm Plants N’ Petals.

“Austin and I went to the same elementary school, but being in different grades, we didn’t know each other well,” says bride Emily. But, fatefully it turns out, their mothers became close friends in recent years, and Austin’s mom invited Emily’s family to attend her 93-year-old uncle’s wedding, at her house, to his 84-year-old girlfriend (!!). Emily attended the nuptial celebration, and, well…who wouldn’t be prompted to fall in love in the presence of such a wedding! For the couple’s own marriage celebration, Galveston was a natural choice: “Both of us have over 100 years of family connections to the island,” Emily explains, noting that her grandparents had their own wedding reception at Hotel Galvez & Spa (Austin and Emily’s choice of venue), in 1946. Their Catholic ceremony included a special message imparted by Pope Francis on how to love one another during marriage, which Emily counts as a highlight of their wedding day. For their reception, the hotel’s famed Music Hall was decorated with lush flowers in shades of blush and ivory, and tabletop decor featuring pops of midnight blue and sparkling gold. Enjoy this peek into the pair’s classic, elegant Texas wedding celebration, through photos by Houston’s immensely talented Kelli Durham, and join us in wishing these two a lifetime of love and happiness!
