Andrew was a baseball player at the University of Houston and Devan was an intern for the department when these college sweethearts first met in March of 2016. Fast-track to Nov. of 2018: Devan and Andrew visited a Christmas tree farm to take Christmas pictures with friends. “Andrew and I were posing when he told me to open one of the prop presents we had and the ring was inside,” recalls the bride. “Then he had a surprise engagement party right after!”
The couple wed in a sunshine-filled indoor ceremony followed by a lighthearted reception featuring a photo booth and light up foam sticks, all stunningly captured by Emily Figurelli Photography. The wedding decor was modern and chic with a sophisticated palette of navy, gold, white and champagne. After sipping on champagne and a night full of dancing, the newlyweds exited under an arch of sparklers.
We are so thrilled to feature this lovely couple and their gorgeous navy, champagne, gold and white chic wedding, captured in such detail by Houston wedding photographer Emily Figurelli Photography. Congratulations, Devan & Andrew!
