White, Gray & Silver Wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th

Lauren and Steve truly believe that fate brought them together. “I met Steve on his first night in Houston after graduation. He was having a housewarming party, and I was invited through his roommates. As soon as I arrived, I noticed Steve and how attractive he was! He was the DJ for the night, and I told him how much I loved his music and how I wanted to add him on Facebook so I could add his Spotify music account,” says Lauren…admitting that she really just needed an excuse to continue talking to him.

After exchanging messages, Steve asked Lauren out on a date. “I was having a procedure the next day, but I was so excited that he asked me out, I couldn’t say no,” Lauren adds. “He took me out to dinner but I couldn’t eat, so he didn’t eat either. [Awww] We just had water and tea, and talked for hours! I knew right then that he was the kind of guy I wanted to end up with,” she says.

For his marriage proposal, Steve made the occasion seem like a normal date night to Lauren. “He told me that he was taking me out for a nice dinner, which was not uncommon,” she recounts. The plan was to dine at the top of the highest building in downtown Houston. “I got all dressed up in my new dress that Steve bought for me a few days before. When we arrived at the top of the JP Morgan Chase Tower, it was then I noticed the candles that were surrounding us. Steve said so many sweet things, most of which I will never remember because I was so excited, and dropped to one knee,” she says. But that wasn’t the end of the surprise—Steve had arranged for Lauren’s family and friends to be at the actual dinner location to celebrate!

“Our wedding day was everything I had dreamed of since I was a child. I got to marry the love of my life with my best friends by my side,” Lauren says. Favorite moment? “When all of my stress and craziness vanished as the doors of The Bell Tower on 34th chapel opened and I got to see my husband for the first time, wiping tears from his eyes,” she adds.

Lush White, Ivory & Gray Houston Wedding

After spending their first date in a yoga class, Keri and Michael decided to take their next outing to get to know each other better while strolling through Houston’s Buffalo Bayou Park. A date well spent, and a gorgeous Houston sunset later, the fitness-and-outdoors lovers decided to meet again… the very next day. Little did they know that Houston’s natural beauty would play into every major milestone they celebrated next.

Michael popped the question to Keri during an “all-day date” that began near a garden complete with an arbor of blooming red roses, where Keri was shocked to find Michael down on one knee!  “We spent the rest of the day talking about how we arrived to this exciting day,” Keri says. “And the 12-hour ‘date’ concluded with a surprise dinner Michael had arranged for both of our families at one of his favorite restaurants
!”

To nobody’s surprise, the couple’s love of the outdoors played right into their nuptials and reception, as well, with lush phalaenopsis orchids, calla lilies and white tulips by Plants N’ Petals accenting rustic barn tables. “We chose orchids as our main flower for their meaning, and also for their simple elegance,” Keri says.

Keri donned a classic silk dress from  Joan Pillow Bridal Salon on the big day, complete with a chic oversized bow in back. The couple sealed the deal with stunning rings from Zadok Jewelers and invited their intimate group of 120 guests to celebrate with invitations and stationery from Bering’s. They began their new life together as a married couple with registry items from Kuhl-Linscomb.

Blush, Champagne & Gray Wedding by J. Cogliandro Photography

It was fate when Maggie and Cory met by chance at McGonigel’s Mucky Duck back in 2012. They saw each other from across the room and instantly connected. A few days later Cory took Maggie out on a date and just knew this was it. After going on many picnic dates at Hermann Park, she had no idea that one day he was going to propose there as well. “I was not surprised when he picked me up with a bottle of wine and asked if I wanted to go to the park. After sitting by the reflecting pool, we visited the tree that we had our first picnic under. Cory told me this was the very spot that he fell in love with me,” recounts Maggie. He got down on one knee and you can guess what happened next. The pair was so inspired after their trip to Paris during Christmas, that they decided to have a French-themed celebration with heavy influence from their family history. Maggie incorporated her grandmother’s rosary in her bouquet and wore her godmother’s diamond bracelet, which beautifully accessorized her fit-and-flare Rivini gown from Mia Bridal Couture. “The church pews were lined with fresh flowers in handmade cones that were made from my grandmother’s sheet music collection when she was a piano teacher,” adds Maggie. We couldn’t be happier for these lovebirds and can’t wait for you to swoon over the photos from J. Cogliandro Photography. Feeling inspired? Go ahead and pin some photos and start planning your fabulous Houston wedding!

Navy, Blush & Gray Wedding by MD Turner Photography

It all started in 2010 when Kaitlyn and Nathan first met after the OU vs. Florida State football game. They immediately hit it off, started messaging each other on Facebook, went on their first date a week later and the rest is history. Four years later, Kaitlyn wed Nathan in a classic Monique Lhuillier gown holding a gorgeous peony and rose bouquet accented with her grandmother’s prayer book. The reception was exactly how she pictured it: simplicity with a hit of romantic elegance, thanks to AJ’s Urban Petals expertise. “It rained all day, but it made the atmosphere more romantic”, said Kaitlyn. Thanks MD Turner Photography for sharing the lovely photos with us and congrats to the newlyweds!

Peach, Green & Gray Rustic Wedding

Amy and Elliot met at a July 4th barbecue, instantly hit it off and the rest was history. The pair traveled to a private beach in Mexico to celebrate their one-year anniversary. Little did she know that he had planned the sweetest proposal on the last day of their romantic getaway. Needless to say, Amy said “yes”, and started planning their Spring wedding. Amy and Elliot envisioned an upscale-rustic wedding with personal touches. Lanterns, beautiful flowers by Blooms Design Studio, tea lights, and a seating chart (built by Amy’s brother and bridesmaid) were just a few of the simple details that brought their vision of an elegant, yet rustic wedding come to life. Check out all of the sweet deets from their wedding below. Congrats and well wishes to the newlyweds!
