The phrase “When you know, you know” couldn’t be more true for Julia and Bryce! Julia has always loved weddings and dreamed of her own since she was a little girl. So when she met Bryce in 2017 not only did she immediately know he would be her future husband, but she also knew exactly what type of wedding she wanted when the time came.
Following a romantic beachside proposal, the time finally came 11 months later when the couple tied the knot in a traditional Catholic church ceremony before joining 230 of their loved ones for a classic wedding reception at Northgate Country Club. “We wanted a very timeless and classic wedding,” notes the bride, describing the elegant rose gold and white color palette. “The white dance floor and white draped walls, paired with the large windows overlooking the rolling hills of Northgate Country Club, made for the most elegant reception. We had large arrangements of peonies, spray roses, and hydrangeas which matched perfectly with the blush uplighting. The glass chandeliers, rose petals, and floating candles in all of the window sills transformed the venue into the most dreamy space.” The newlyweds and their guests enjoyed a delectable filet mignon with roasted potatoes and asparagus and danced the night away before ending their classic wedding celebration with a golden sparkler sendoff! Says Julia: “Our big day was nothing short of the most marvelous fairy tale.” Join us in wishing this sweet Houston couple a lifetime of love and scroll down to see their stunning highlight wedding video from Houston videographer Reverent Wedding Films.

After a chance meeting while celebrating Cinco de Mayo, Jessica and Andrew immediately hit it off while bonding over Sperry’s. Jessica noticed Andrew’s white Sperry’s and blurted out that she had the same shoes but in cheetah print. This led him to ask “who wears cheetah” so naturally, Jessica recites the next line of the Selfie Song and they’ve been inseparable since. “Our meeting was ridiculous, and throughout that entire night, we recited the Selfie Song obnoxiously, laughed, and talked about everything and nothing,” recalls Jessica. “It felt like we found the perfect person at the perfect time.” At the end of the night, Andrew asked Jessica for her number a street over from where they would, later on, have their fall wedding at. “I’m a massive believer in fate, and I knew there was a reason we met.”
Just as fate intended, the couple tied the knot in a dreamy outdoor garden ceremony surrounded by 120 of their loved ones. For the reception, velvet place cards in a color palette of navy, burgundy, and ivory and velvet linens played a critical role in their fall wedding. “The color was a representation of the type of entree that had been picked,” explains Jessica. “My mother’s name in Vietnamese translates to velvet, so I wanted to pay homage to that. EB Inc. Event Rentals & Design was able to make my velvet dreams come true, and we were able to have ivory and red velvet linens for our tables.” Guests dined on steak churrasco and lemon rosemary chicken with garlic mashed potatoes and haricot verts before hitting the dancefloor. To pay homage to Jessica’s Vietnamese culture, the newlyweds surprised guests with a Lion Dance performance and Jessica wore a traditional Vietnamese dress. Jessica and Andrew’s biggest obstacle while planing their fall wedding was having to narrow down the vendors they went with. Says Jessica: “I really built some amazing relationships with the people in the wedding industry and there is so much talent and love that fuels into our special day. I wish I could’ve hired everyone I met at the I Do! Soiree.” Join us in celebrating this sweet couple and swooning over their gorgeous fall wedding, all beautifully documented by Houston wedding photographer Kate Elizabeth Photography and Houston wedding videographer Reverent Wedding Films. Congratulations, Jessica & Andrew!

Former Texas A&M schoolmates Lauren and Rex met at a College Station bar, both there to watch Houston rapper Kirko Bangz perform. “Yes, it’s true,” the bride recounts, “nothing sets the mood more for falling in love than the sweet, romantic melodies, ‘Drank In My Cup’ and ‘Keep It Trill.'” Yet, fall in love they did, and in love they have stayed, Lauren praising Rex for “his ability to make everything in life fun,” and Rex noting “how easy everything is with her.” Rex proposed to Lauren in front of both of their families, so it’s only natural that family would play a central role in their fall 2019 blush and gold wedding at fairytale wedding setting Ashton Gardens West. From her processional down the aisle to the same music that had accompanied her mother’s own wedding processional, to the sleeve of her mother’s wedding dress that master florist Dream Bouquet used to wrap the bouquet, to the classic songs played at the reception, “The entire day was a constant reminder to us of the examples set before us by our parents, and the promises we were making to each other,” bride Lauren says.
