Four years ago, Madison, a nurse practitioner from Seattle, and Emmanuel, a doctor from Ecuador, met at the MD Anderson Cancer Center. 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 »

Greg was smitten when Meredith first messaged him on the dating app, Bumble, and said, “Hi LG!” since only his family called him by that nickname. Fast forward in time, Greg surprised Meredith with a weekend trip to his hometown in San Antonio, TX. It was in his hometown that Greg chose to propose to Meredith on the balcony of the historic Hotel Emma. Unfortunately, just a few months after their engagement, Meredith’s mother was diagnosed with cancer. Unable to make it to the wedding, Meredith and Greg found meaningful ways to honor her.

For their fall wedding, the couple chose to wed at the timeless and elegant Briscoe Manor. Meredith’s father officiated the wedding ceremony in the Briscoe Chapel, accompanied by 275 of their closest loved ones. They exchanged their vows in front of a stunning gold arch draped with florals and greenery. The bride described her wedding as “classic with a hint of modern” and thoughtfully included both wine and blush throughout the ceremony and reception. Even the deer mounts hanging on the bar walls had a wine and blush floral touch! Garden floral arrangements beautifully decorated the tables along with silver dollar eucalyptus hanging from the chandeliers and fireplace. Behind the Bash kept fall in mind, serving up a decadent fall salad with fresh spinach leaves, complete with a carving station offering both herb-crusted beef sirloin and pork loin stuffed with jalapeno cheddar cornbread.  Later that evening, white glow sticks and flower crowns were a hit on the dance floor! One of their favorite memories of the wedding was the fabulous firework display before riding off in a pearl-colored Rolls-Royce Silver Cloud II from Monarch British Limousines.

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.

The couple joined 225 loved ones at luxurious The Bell Tower on 34th for a “dreamy European-inspired” wedding. The decor was both classic and romantic, featuring lush white and blush florals and softly glowing candles. The newlywed’s most cherished moment was, “Writing our own vows and reading them to each other in front of all our family and friends.”

We’re delighted to share with you this sweet couple’s dreamy European-inspired wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th, as we wish them a lifetime of love. Congratulations, Tiffany & Stephen!
