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!
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!
Lauren and Ricky were family friends for years before becoming something more when they ran into each other at the restaurant Ricky was managing. “I asked him out for a holiday drink a few months later and we have been together ever since,” says Lauren. The day before Lauren’s birthday, Ricky took Lauren and her mother out to dinner, but that’s not all he had planned. What followed was a surprise and intimate proposal at Lauren’s mother’s house. “Ricky was supposed to wait until my birthday to propose, but he says the ring was burning a hole in his pocket and he couldn’t wait any longer!”
The couple wed in a traditional church ceremony before joining 225 guests for an enchanting reception at The Houstonian Hotel, Club & Spa. Notes the bride: “My wedding was a perfect execution of my absolute dream and vision that I have had for years. I had a vision of a room full of candles and large, white orchids and cherry blossom trees reflecting a golden amber glow throughout the ballroom. Gorgeous white hydrangea, calla lilies and roses alongside tall tapered candles filled the room. My guests are still talking about the flowers and decor, calling the ballroom just stunning!” The couple’s only challenge? The groom getting his tux just two days before the wedding!
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.

Anna had been dreaming of her wedding day since she was a little girl so when Jack, her college sweetheart, proposed she was looking forward to every aspect of the planning process…but then the global pandemic hit and the wedding had to be postponed. “Instead of worrying about napkin colors and floral arrangements, I was filling hand sanitizer bottles and making sure each table was spaced 6 feet apart,” says the bride. Fortunately, love conquered all, and the wedding day Anna dreamed about came to life at Iron Manor. “We wanted an atmosphere that represented both of our personalities—the industrial yet avant-garde ambiance of the Iron Manor did just that,” notes the bride. “From the venue’s vaulted ceilings and extravagant chandeliers to the breathtaking florals, every detail of our day was truly perfect.”
The couple pledged their love in Iron Manor’s grand Iron Chapel amidst 235 of their loved ones. The reception décor was modern and elegant with a romantic color palette of blush, burgundy and gold. A unique and personal touch was a scroll that flowed off the cake table with hand-scripted lyrics of the song from the couple’s first date and dance. “For Jack and me to say that we were on cloud nine at our wedding would be an understatement — we were truly #OnCloudShine thanks to our amazing vendors, venue and coordinators, and supportive loved ones.”
Join us in celebrating this sweet couple and swooning over their elegant and romantic wedding at Iron Manor, all beautifully documented by Houston wedding photographer Emily Figurelli Photography. Congratulations, Anna & Jack!
