Sarah and Humberto’s Houston garden wedding has it all, y’all. There’s the beautiful outdoor wedding ceremony surrounded by friends, family and sunshine, at indoor-outdoor Houston wedding venue Hughes Manor. There’s the chic navy, blush and gold wedding palette, executed in elegant style inside Hughes Manor’s modern-vintage interior. And there’s the TDF wedding cake from Cakes By Gina, with its metallic stacks and floral accents. Seriously, it’s just a flat-out fabulous Houston garden wedding, and we can’t get enough (kinda like the guests couldn’t get enough of those insane crab puff tostadas from Cordúa Catering…OMG, yum!!). Thank you, Sarah and Humberto for sharing your incredibly special day with us. Wishing you a lifetime of love, joy…and dancing. xo Click here to read the rest of this post »

College is a time for growth preparation for life as an adult. For Heather and Nick, it also provided their chance encounter. Meeting at Texas A&M’s “Fish Camp” orientation program, the two began a sweet romance. During Heather’s senior year of college, while she worked in Arizona for six weeks Nick came to visit her and took her on a gorgeous hike through the Grand Canyon. With the breath-taking view as a backdrop, Nick popped the question. “With tears already streaming down my face, my exact words were ‘YES, but there’s nothing in the box.'” Startled by her response, Nick began searching for the ring and thankfully found it next to him, and (shaking a little), slid it onto her finger. “I was laughing and crying at the same time,” Heather says. The couple decided to take their nuptials back to the place where they first met, and exchanged vows at Peach Creek Ranch in College Station. With its rustic charm, the barn house, surrounded by cozy cottages, provided them with their own slice of Heaven for the day. Congratulations, Heather and Nick, on finding your forever love!

This week, as all of us take shelter, rebuild and regroup from the unprecedented deluge of Hurricane Harvey, and take stock of everything that is dear and precious to us, we will be sharing some of our favorite weddings of the last few years. If you need an escape, a moment of peace, a reminder of the importance of family, friends and, above all, love, please settle in, snuggle down and join us. And once the storm clouds clear, and the water recedes, let us know what we can do to help you. We are all in this together. #BeStrongHouston #LoveConquersAll
Jenny and Chris knew each other long before they would ever fall in love. Their families were great friends even before the two were born! When Jenny was very young, her family moved away from Houston to Corpus Christi, but they eventually returned. So did Jenny, many years later, to attend nursing school. Chris, by that time, had moved to Austin. That’s when fate brought them back together, at a party at Jenny’s parents’ home, where they reconnected, and Jenny says, “we have been inseparable ever since!” The proposal happened on a weekend when the couple had traveled to Austin for a friend’s wedding—totally smooth move on Chris’ part. Jenny wasn’t suspecting a thing with another wedding going on! They went out for a date night at one of their favorite Austin spots, but the hostess didn’t lead them to a table. Instead, she led them “down candle-filled steps into a private wine cellar.” (Keep going! Here come those cute details we promised…) The cellar door opened and Jenny still recalls all of the details perfectly; champagne, candles and being surrounded by the most beautiful flowers. In the most romantic way Chris proposed to Jenny, the love of his life. And he gets kudos because he made sure the moment didn’t stop there…when they returned to Houston, their families were ready and waiting with a party to celebrate! Jenny and Chris couldn’t wait to say I do—and Jenny couldn’t wait to see Chris’ face when he saw her in her gorgeous Liancarlo gown from Ivory Bridal Atelier. The big day started with a meaningful ceremony at their church, and concluded with a fantastic reception hosted and catered by the Petroleum Club of Houston. We’re grateful to Serendipity Photography for sharing photos of this sweet couple’s wedding, and grateful to Jenny and Chris for sharing their special day with us…and all of you!
