We love it when a Houston bride tells us that the absolute most difficult challenge in preparing for her wedding was “waiting for the day to finally come.” We should all be so fortunate!!
For Emily and Kyle, who met at church in 7th grade, the ease of planning their wedding started with one excellent choice: Picking The Gallery as their Houston wedding venue. “I wanted a very organic and romantic feel,” Emily says. And The Gallery, with its ivy-covered walls, burbling fountain and rustic wood accents, was the perfect backdrop for her vision of relaxed, joyful, green, blush and ivory wedding.

We love a good “road obstacle” proposal story…don’t you?? “Brett proposed at my family ranch on Easter weekend of 2017,” bride Ashley tells us. “On the road leading up to our ranch my uncle and dad had strategically placed a large branch in the middle of the road, so while we were driving, we had to stop to move it. When I starting walking back to the car, I turned around and Brett was on one knee asking me to marry him! My whole family and Brett’s parents were at the ranch to celebrate afterwards. It was the perfect weekend!” Here’s what wasn’t so perfect: In August, 2017, as they were looking forward to their spring 2018 wedding, Ashley and Brett watched in fear and sorrow as Hurricane Harvey barreled through Houston, devastating countless lives, and flooding the couple’s wedding reception venue. But, focusing on a glimmer of silver lining, Ashley notes, “We were one of the fortunate couples who had ample time to find a new venue…which was Houston Racquet Club. It was the perfect spot for our reception!” The joy and gratitude of their special day is in full focus in Ashley and Brett’s wedding photos from Kelli Durham Photography, featured here. Cheers to the happy couple, and big THANKS to them, and to Kelli, for sharing their wedding with us…and YOU!Click here to read the rest of this post »
A rustic-elegant Texas barn wedding with a romantic palette of green, blush and burgundy, for an adorable couple who first met in sixth grade?? Yes, please! We’re delighted to present to y’all Alexis and Matthew, who celebrated their nuptials on a sweet spring day at a fancied-up Montgomery barn in the presence of 120 loved ones. There’s so much to love about this couple and their beautiful wedding (made exponentially more beautiful by League City-based Haute Flowers & Events, who provided flowers and decor for the occasion). From the vintage-furniture touches, to the glittering accents of gold, to the “string lights and candles everywhere,” the bride says. Please join us in wishing Alexis and Matthew congratulations, and a life filled with love, sunshine and…outdoor adventures (they both love hiking, and Matthew proposed at the bottom of a waterfall!!).
