Green, Blush And Ivory Wedding At The Gallery

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.

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 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!”
