The Tuscan-inspired architecture of Royal Oaks Country Club was the perfect canvas for this wedding editorial, artfully captured by Painted Peacock Photography. The shoot was inspired by the wedding of childhood sweethearts who never lost their whimsical imaginations and playfulness, creating a sweet, romantic and dreamy scene.
Julianna and Stephen’s love story began six years ago at the Heights White Linen Night in Houston and led to a romantic proposal at sunset on Jade mountain in St. Lucia.

Before their whimsical wedding at The Peach Orchard, it all started in 2016 when Lesly was offered a position at Abercrombie which she turned down due to the long commute. Laziz ironically accepted it while she started work at another location. A year later, their districts combined, and Laziz was asked to fill in for Lesly while she was on vacation. “I needed someone to fill in for me while I was out for two weeks – and out of many, it was [Laziz] who was chosen. [He] should have been gone the day I was back, but they asked [him] to stay one more day…and that’s all it took. Timing is everything & it’s always been [Laziz].” Lesly says.

After just a few dates, Madison knew she had found her “McDreamy.” A proposal followed on a beautiful evening at a beach in Mexico, with a radiant sunset as the backdrop.
The couple planned for their wedding to be in February 2020, but as you can imagine, for two medical pros working at the largest cancer center in the U.S. during the pandemic, their wedding plans came to a halt. “We made the difficult decision to delay our wedding to not only keep our family and friends safe but also the patients we work with at the cancer center,” Madison says.
While Catherine and Paten originally met and even dated for a few years in high school starting in 2009, it wasn’t until a crawfish boil seven years later that the pair rekindled their romance. When they started dating a few months later, they could feel this time was different than their previous fling. So, when Paten got down on one knee during a trip to New Braunfels with a group of close friends, “he asked the easiest question of my life!” explained Catherine. Then, in March 2021, the couple tied the knot in a stunning white and rose gold wedding at Madera Estates. Click here to read the rest of this post »
