White, Gold & Champagne Wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th

Tuesday, August 16th, 2016

Sara and William went out one night as individual moral support to two of their dear friends—having no clue they would be the ones actually meeting their soulmate on that fateful evening. Sara still finds it surreal that the friends they’d chaperoned only dated for a couple of weeks…while she and William ended up getting married! Fast-forward to Easter weekend a few years later, when William accompanied Sara and her family on a fishing trip to Galveston. The couple remembers, “We had a blast spending time together, even though nobody caught a thing!” However, William had bigger plans in mind…he found the perfect opportunity to pull Sara’s dad aside, and asked for her hand in marriage. Her father was thrilled and of course gave his blessing! Later that night, Sara and William were on the balcony of their Galveston condo having a wonderful conversation about their relationship and how lucky they were to have found one another. Then William said, “Do you know what would make this better?” And he dropped to one knee, under the stars, and asked Sara to marry him. Sara couldn’t believe how perfect the moment was—just as she said, “Yes!” the moon cast a dreamy shadow on their balcony as if it was destiny. Sara and William said their vows with an elegant black-tie wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th, with an “all white, gold and champagne” palette, per Sara’s express wishes, and personalized touches everywhere. Sara’s DIY wedding favors and handmade wedding decor touches included stir sticks, coasters and koozies! You go, girl. Best wishes and cheers to the future, Sara and William!

It’s true, everything is bigger in Texas- especially weddings. Just ask Houston bride Bella and her hubby about their 1,400-guest reception. The couple had a true Texas spring wedding with blooming orchids, an outdoor reception, and a 16-layer cake! Guests enjoyed the perfect weather and some good ‘ol Southern food: roasted beef, pico, beans and freshly squeezed Lemonade (mmm). Oh and did we mention how stunning Bella looked in her full-sleeve, chic lace bridal gown from Parvani Vida? Thanks Civic Photos for capturing all of the sweet deets from Bella and Irvin’s wedding, we’re in love! Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Coral, Gold & Gray Wedding

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

“Ahren and I met freshman year at University of Houston through mutual friends. We lost touch after I moved to Chicago and he started Optometry school. We reconnected in 2010 and I asked him out on a date and the rest was history!” Ada says. “We decided to have a traditional Catholic ceremony for Ahren’s side followed by a traditional Chinese tea ceremony for my family,” adds Ada. After both ceremonies, it was time to party! The reception started with the bridal party entering to the Houston Rockets introduction song while the guests were given surprise goodie bags with sparklers and glow sticks. After a lovely dinner, Ada and Ahren danced the night away with their nearest and dearest. “It was definitely a dream wedding!” says Ada. Congrats to the newlyweds!

Ivory, Lavender & Sage Wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th Street

Monday, May 25th, 2015

What are the odds that a speed-dating mixer will lead to a happily ever after? Well, Raquel and Robert beat the odds and instantly hit it off. Ten months after meeting at the mixer, Robert wined and dined Raquel at Antica Osteria. “I guessed halfway through dinner what was going to happen,” says Raquel. After dinner Robert took Raquel to Hermann Park for an intimate proposal. “For some reason, all of the lights were out at the park. Nevertheless, the proposal was in true form of our relationship- a little bit of tradition mixed with corky romance, but always full of surprises and good laughs!” adds Raquel. The pair wanted a romantic, garden theme wedding with lots of candles, which perfectly complemented The Bell Tower on 34th Street. “We wanted to include hint of our Asian and Irish heritage through the colors and favors,” she adds. It was only appropriate that Raquel married her Prince Charming in a Rivini gown from Mia Bridal Couture paired with satin white Badgley Mischka peep-toe pumps. *Sigh* Just wait ‘til you see the lovely photos! Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!
