Jennifer and Andrew met in paradise while on an excursion during a company trip in Mexico. Andrew asked Jennifer to share a locker, and the rest is history. In March 2019, Andrew set up a surprise engagement on the sandy beaches of Kauai, Hawaii. “He made reservations for dinner at the Sheraton, but before dinner, we were walking on the beach. He had hired a photographer who was posing as a random beach go-er. They offered to take our photo, and after a couple of shots, I moved positions, and when I turned around, he was down on one knee,” Jennifer remembers.

Tiffany and Stephen met at a patio bar in 2015 during Tiffany’s second year of medical school. They instantly hit it off but Tiffany warned Stephen that it was a busy time so dating her could be a challenge. “Luckily, I made time for a second date, and after several evenings filled with laughter and free-flowing conversation, we developed a unique bond,” says Tiffany. “Stephen consistently brought balance to my life and knew how to support me when times got hard. More importantly, we realized how well we worked together and felt certain our relationship was special.” Fast forward to 2018: Stephen wrote to Tiffany’s father professing his love for her and seeking his approval, in Vietnamese, with the help of his best man. After receiving her father’s approval, Stephen proposed to Tiffany in Durham, North Carolina and surprised her with an engagement party to celebrate with their friends.

The couple joined 225 loved ones at luxurious The Bell Tower on 34th for a “dreamy European-inspired” wedding. The decor was both classic and romantic, featuring lush white and blush florals and softly glowing candles. The newlywed’s most cherished moment was, “Writing our own vows and reading them to each other in front of all our family and friends.”

We’re delighted to share with you this sweet couple’s dreamy European-inspired wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th, as we wish them a lifetime of love. Congratulations, Tiffany & Stephen!

With a mutual love of exploring small Texas towns, Amy and Jayce set out to visit Navasota to celebrate Jayce graduating from Texas A&M University. The trip became a celebration in more ways than one when they got to the front door of St. Paul’s Episcopal church and found a piece of wood on the ground. Jayce insisted Amy pick it up, and she did, “When I did, the sign read ‘New historical marker: Jayce Thomas Gates asks Amy Lane Surles to be his wife’,” recalls Amy. Of course, she said yes!

The couple’s wedding was a grand and elegant affair with décor expertly designed by floral design firm Plants N’ Petals. Notes the bride: “The color palette was light and airy with shades of wonderful pinks, cream and chartreuse green with accents of gold. The combination of over-the-top and grand tall florals on square tables, round cocktail tables with low lush florals and candles, and luxurious gold velvet lounge furniture came together to complete a perfect modern and classic cocktail-style reception look.” For the groom, Susie’s Cakes hit it out of the park with a show-stopping groom’s cake of Minute Maid Park. And it was only fitting for surprise guest Orbit, the Astros mascot, to help cut the cake! The unforgettable night concluded with the newlyweds exiting beneath a shower of rose petals, before speeding away in a vintage Rolls Royce.

Join us in swooning over this beautiful pink, white and creams classic wedding by Plants N’ Petals. Congratulations, Amy & Jayce!

We’re so happy to feature this sweet Houston couple and their gorgeous white, gold and black classic wedding, beautifully captured by Stephania Campos. Congratulations, Brittan & Grant!

Timeless Summer Wedding at The Estates at Pecan Park

On date nights, Jessica and Sy would watch Masterchef and came to love the winner of season one, Whitney Miller. So what better way to propose to Jessica than to ask their favorite Masterchef winner for help? After Sy received a personalized video from Whitney, the proposal all came together during a family beach trip. “Mrs. Slater had her laptop open and called me over and said ‘Come watch this video,’” recounts Jessica. “I recognized who it was and thought, ‘Oh fun it’s Whitney from Masterchef!’ But then she said my name and that Sy had something to ask me. I was in shock! Then Sy grabbed my hands, told me he loves me, and asked me to marry him. Of course, I said yes!”

For their summer wedding, Jessica and Sy chose the sprawling green grounds of The Estates at Pecan Park for a timeless wedding celebration. The couple exchanged vows in a sun-drenched outdoor ceremony where Jessica’s favorite moment was seeing her groom at the altar. The newlyweds took full advantage of the venue’s blank-slate ballroom and large windows to create a bright and airy reception enhanced by a delicate wedding palette of grey, white, gold and eucalyptus.

We invite you to celebrate this sweet young couple’s timeless summer wedding at The Estates at Pecan Park, along with us, by scrolling through dreamy images from Amy Maddox Photography. Congratulations, Jessica & Sy!
