From the moment Emma and Dylan first met, they knew they’d found someone special in each other. “I love how perfectly our personalities complement each other, and her ability to light up any room,” explained Dylan. Their proposal at the breathtaking Biltmore Estate in North Carolina was just as beautiful as their elegant blush wedding back home in Houston at the Royal Oaks Country Club.

What sprouted as a high school romance blossomed into Mary Margaret and Daniel’s quintessential love story and beautiful wedding. In their junior year of high school, Daniel asked Mary Margaret to attend a pool party together with mutual friends. A few years later, Daniel rented the patio at Mary Margaret’s favorite restaurant for just the two of them and popped the question. Afterward, an intimate celebratory dinner, they joined their families who were waiting inside at the bar. “It was the best night ever!” explained Mary Margaret. The best day ever? The big one, of course!

The couple married at the ornate Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Houston. Traditional white wedding floral arrangements bursting with roses and candle-lit lanterns lined the aisle. Mary Margaret carried her something borrowed—her mother’s Rosary Beads—wrapped around her white rose bouquet. But the bride’s favorite floral arrangement cascaded from the ceiling at the reception.

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!
