Shannon & Tyler ~ June 21, 2014

Oh, how we love a well-planned proposal. Take, for example, Tyler’s to Shannon: After a sunny day of boating together on Austin’s Lake Travis, the groom-to-be feigned a “late” dinner reservation and led his beloved to Windy Point Park, where, after telling Shannon how much he loved her, he spun her around to face the words, “Will You Marry Me?” spelled in rose petals in the sand. He then proceeded to place a ring that he had custom designed for his one-and-only on her shaking-with-excitement hand. The couple’s Crystal Ballroom at The Rice wedding, with its sophisticated palette of blush, navy and gold, and its romantic candlelit glow, wasn’t just elegant—it was also a whole lot of fun: “Everyone enjoyed letting loose and dancing the night away,” Shannon says. “The dance floor was never empty. It was a night of a lifetime!”

Crystle & Max ~ August 9, 2014

It would be hard to top Max’s proposal to Crystle for sheer romance: The Belgian-born model alighted with his beloved from a chartered helicopter, then surprised the former Miss USA (2008) with his down-on-one-knee question in front of giddy friends and family dressed in T-shirts reading, “True Love is Crystle Clear.” Yet the couple’s summer wedding did manage to take romance to a whole new level, with a lavish 320-guest celebration set at castle-like Chateau Cocomar. Fittingly, the bride, who currently stars in OWN Network’s Tyler Perry sitcom “For Better or Worse,” was the very picture of a fairytale princess in her Lazaro gown and sparkling updo. And she has special praise for those who brought her regal fantasy to life: “The entire event was coordinated by [venue owner] Karen Martin and the Cocomar ladies,” Crystle notes. “They planned and executed together a tremendously awesome event that will forever be remembered!”

Disney Inspired Wedding at Ashton Gardens

Sarah & Robbie ~ April 4, 2014

He proposed at Walt Disney World. They honeymooned on a Disney cruise. Do we sense a theme here? Absolutely, says bride Sarah, who wore a Disney-princess-worthy tiara for her Ashton Gardens wedding to high-school sweetheart Robbie. The pair, both of them former Walt Disney World employees, treated guests to such Disney-inspired delights as a signature “True Love’s Kiss” martini, featuring a pink-sugared rim, and a choreographed first dance to a waltz taken from Disney World’s Wishes Fireworks Spectacular. The bride’s most treasured memory? “Our special unity candle,” Sarah says. “We invited all of our guest who have helped shape our lives to join us in the lighting of the candle. It made for a beautiful and touching ceremony to make eye contact with each row of guests.”

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Lana and Bojan ~ February 1, 2014

Sometimes it takes a wedding to inspire a wedding. Take the case of Houston lovebirds Lana and Bojan, who traveled to New Mexico for a friend’s nuptials. “The day before the wedding, Bojan surprised me by renting a car and taking me sightseeing through gorgeous forests and snow-covered slopes,” Lana recounts. On the way back to their hotel, Bojan stopped, got out of the car, and told Lana to close her eyes. “When I opened them, he was standing next to a snowman. He asked me to look inside the snowman, and when I did, I found the engagement ring. Truly one of the happiest days of my life,” the bride says. Another happy day? The day of the couple’s magnificent La Colombe d’Or wedding, of course.
