In 2015, Kallie worked at the gym Colt would frequent. Although Kallie was interested in Colt, she was too shy to say hello…until one fateful day Colt messaged Kallie’s friend and co-worker asking if the gym was hiring. Kallie seized the opportunity to finally talk to her crush and immediately took over the conversation to message Colt, ”Take me to lunch and I will get you the job.” From there the rest was history and while on a family trip to Cancun, Colt popped the question during a romantic beach dinner as onlookers and Colt’s family cheered him on.
The couple chose the stately Iron Manor for a wedding the bride describes as a “Whimsical fairytale with an abundance of florals against Iron Manor’s stark and sleek Chicago style brick, accented with steel beams and gorgeous crystal chandeliers.” Kallie and Colt pledged their love in a romantic indoor ceremony overflowing with lush greenery and blush and white blooms, exquisitely designed by Plants N’ Petals. The whimsical decor continued in Iron Manor’s Crane Hall for an ethereal reception where greenery filled the industrial space. The couple’s most cherished moments from their fairytale wedding day were, “First look with each other, father of the groom officiating the wedding, and dancing the night away with loved ones.”
We are so delighted to share this whimsical fairytale wedding at Iron Manor, in all its splendor, with you. Congratulations, Kallie & Colt!
They both love tropical fruit, coconut water and spending their weekends cooking, and doing bible education work. They both name kindness and dedication to family as the qualities they love most in each other. And on one fine spring day, at a castle-like Houston wedding venue, Lisa and Melbon both said “I do,” in front of 100 close friends and family members. Their wedding celebration, which incorporated the couple’s Caribbean, Portuguese and Indian cultures, surrounded gathered guests with beautiful, larger-than-life white, blush and peach flower arrangements and tons of candles, courtesy of Houston floral design firm Plants N’ Petals.

Who says Houston couples can’t have the feel of an outdoor wedding venue but with the climate-controlled comfort of the great indoors?
If this is the wedding vibe you’re going for, we’d like to introduce you to Ashton Gardens, which seamlessly blends the beauty of nature’s bounty with classic ballroom wedding ambiance.
Ashton Gardens is actually two nearly identical venues (one in North Houston, one in West Houston).
Both offer a blend of forested splendor and romantic ballroom chic that’s a perfect fit for couples who want the feel of an outdoor wedding venue, but without the unpredictability of Mother Nature. Say, “I do,” in front of a backdrop of soaring windows looking out on lush trees, in Ashton Gardens’ lovely on-site chapel, with its country-church feel, and state-of-the-art technology. Then venture into the venue’s party space, enclosed in windows for wonderful sense of serenity, and accented with crystal chandeliers for an even more wonderful sense of…celebration!
Visit Ashton Gardens North on Saturday, June 23, from 1-3 p.m. for your chance to tour the lovely chapel, twinkling ballroom and beautiful grounds. Talk to in-house wedding experts, and learn more about the venue’s full-service wedding packages, which include ceremony and reception space, rentals, dance floor, lighting, and fine cuisine. We can’t stress enough how little stress you’ll experience if you put your wedding in the hands of the experts at Ashton Gardens. Can’t make it on 6/23? No problem! Take a moment to schedule a tour at your convenience…and make sure to tell them you found them on the Houston Wedding Blog! Happy planning, loves.
There are few venues that have it all…like, absolutely ALL: magnificent wood-beamed chapel, gorgeous glass-walled ballroom surrounded by lush natural beauty, divine in-house catering and full-service wedding planning. Well, darlings, we’re happy to say, Ashton Gardens is one of those rare venues. Click here to read the rest of this post »
