A Tinder connection sparked into true love for Breanna and John (…and then became fodder for a moment of comic relief during the best man’s speech at their wedding!). John, a baseball coach, brought Breanna, a flight attendant, to the East Coast for Christmas, 2016, and proceeded to propose to her at the Rockefeller Center Christmas tree…awww. Their winter engagement led, eventually, to a spring wedding at Gulf Coast lakefront venue Waters Edge, where the couple said their vows beneath a billowing canopy with the waters of Clear Lake as their backdrop. Accents of deep red and tons of greenery brought fun and vibrancy to the pair’s boho waterfront wedding…as did a super cool VW mobile photo booth! We wish all of our love to the newlyweds, and thank them for sharing their adorable Houston lakefront wedding with us…and with you! Click here to read the rest of this post »
Vewiser, who met Tiesha while the two were attending Lamar University, used a trip to Disney World to set the backdrop for his creative proposal. On New Year’s Day, after a visit to the Florida theme park, Vewiser presented his beloved with a photo album filled with pics from their trip…with one very special addition on the last page: a photo of an engagement ring. “He immediately got down on one knee and expressed his love for me, and how our love has grown over the years,” notes the bride. The pair sealed the deal in front of 240 friends and family, Tiesha in a beautiful lace mermaid gown from Parvani Vida, with a gorgeous boho chic wedding designed and decorated by Plants N’ Petals. The Houston floral firm brought Tiesha’s vision of vivid hues and flower crowns to life. “I wanted to use bright colors for the flower arrangements and not the typical ‘wedding colors,'” the bride says. “We both agreed bright colors matched our relationship and vivid personalities so we wanted to incorporate that in our wedding.” In addition to the fabulous decor, the newlyweds and their guests enjoyed delicious offerings from Houston’s Café Natalie Catering which included chicken parmesan, salmon, roasted vegetables and garlic mashed potatoes. After a night of dancing and fun, the festivities ended off with an incredible fireworks display. “Our wedding was everything we wanted and more, truly a blessing from God and a dream come true!”

“Our design aim was to discover the intersection between what Barr Mansion had already so beautifully curated and where we found our personality within that,” says bride Jenna of her wedding to adorable Nathan at Austin’s foodie-focused wedding venue. “We took the antique, rustic, free-spirit, artistic, creative, comfortable and natural beauty that was already there and built on that with homegrown flowers, handcrafted centerpieces, personalized paper-cut banners, unique music, DIY’d accent pieces, and a relaxing, lounge-style reception atmosphere.” Even the day’s wet weather was a welcome happenstance. “My mom mentioned that it had rained on her wedding day, and Nathan remarked how the drizzly gray weather looked exactly like where he grew up in Alaska.” We’re delighted to share with you this sweet couple’s lovely wedding, featuring coordination by Kat Creech Events and flowers by Dream Bouquet—make sure to check out more from this talented team of top Houston wedding vendors in the new issue of Weddings in Houston (“Opulence Among the Oaks,” p. 216), on newsstands now!
