Harry and Margaret met at The University of Texas in 2008 but did not start dating until seven years later when Margaret was attending dental school in Utah. After a four-year long-distance romance, Harry proposed to Margaret on a trip to Napa Valley, CA, where they enjoyed a weekend of wine tasting. “It was the perfect location; breathtaking, romantic and intimate,” says Margaret. The tour guide who was in on the surprise encouraged the couple to walk the grounds where a table was set up with beautiful flowers and champagne and Harry popped the question.
Sarah and TJ met while working in downtown Houston. With their desks conveniently across from one another, the two would talk for hours. “We became best friends and would get lunch and coffee together every day. That grew into messaging on skype all day at work and barely getting any work done,” says Sarah. “I remember thinking there was no possible way I could ever have enough time with TJ.”
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.

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!
