Though they met many years ago through mutual friends, back then, “The timing just wasn’t right,” says Kevin’s future bride, Julie.

“I was still in school, and long distance relationships can be difficult, so we remained friends for a couple years, hanging out with friends when I would come back to Houston.” Then one fateful day, Kevin asked Julie out on their first real date. “I thought, ‘He is so handsome, and I already know he is such a wonderful guy,’ so I said, ‘Yes.'” Fast-forward to a surprise midweek vacation to Galveston, which found the couple enjoying cocktails at the romantic rooftop bar of The Tremont House. I thought, “‘Oh my gosh, is he going to propose??'” Julie recounts. “But it didn’t happen.” The next morning, as the couple was leaving their hotel, “We walked down to the front of the hotel overlooking the beach…and right up to an arrangement with a bunch of photos of us, flowers, and a sign that read, ‘Marry me.’ I was in shock! I had no idea what was happening at first, he had caught me so off guard.” While planning their wedding, both Julie and Kevin, along with the rest of the city of Houston, were caught off guard by a much less pleasant surprise: Hurricane Harvey.

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.
