Super Romantic Bridal Shoot From Meant To Be Films

Video: Meant To Be Films

Edgy, textured florals and seductive candle arrangements are the backdrop for this very romantic bridal shoot, conceived and filmed by hot Houston wedding videographer Meant To Be Films.

For its beautiful “Modern Amour” styled wedding shoot, Meant To Be Films partnered with haute Houston bridal salon Belle Ame Bridal, bridal hair and makeup artist Kiss And Makeup Houston, and super-talented Houston wedding photographer Stephania Campos. The result is an ultra romantic scene with tons of elegant wedding inspiration. We love the delicate balance of “sexy and sublime” in this dreamy, feminine bridal shoot. It is this balance that is at the heart of Meant To Be Films’ wedding videography expertise, and why we’re so thrilled to partner with this fabulous Houston husband-and-wife creative team! Scroll down for a selection of images from “Modern Amour” by Stephania Campos Photography. And find the awesome Houston wedding vendors and artists mentioned here at Weddings in Houston!

Romantic Sustainable Wedding At The Astorian

Talk about a meet cute: When Ashley and Andrew both showed up a Halloween party dressed as Tom Cruise (Ashley as T.C. from “Risky Business,” Andrew as T.C. from “Top Gun”), it was only natural that they’d find each other and hit it off. That was in 2016. Two years later, the self-proclaimed goofballs–both of whom say that a sense of humor and ability to make one another laugh is what they love most about each other–tied the knot at The Astorian, in the presence of 200 loved ones. “We were raised to try and waste nothing, repurpose much, include those who are challenged, and when spending time or money, make decisions with love and prayer that support those efforts,” the couple tells us. And by taking special measures with their wedding planning, such as delivering their repurposed bouquets to senior assisted living communities in the Medical Center area of Houston, and choosing guest favors from Sweet Heat Jam Co., which sells products handmade by mentally and physically challenged individuals in Katy, the couple was able to achieve that, “and so much more, on the BEST DAY EVER!” Ashley says. We invite you to take a moment and enjoy this thoughtful and elegant wedding (including a GORGEOUS cake from local legend Cakes By Gina) as we wish Ashley and Andrew a lifetime of love!

Rustic Autumn Wedding At Briscoe Manor

With a partner as sweet as Robert, it’s no wonder why Leslie said, “Yes,” to him. “He proposed at our home on Christmas Eve before being joined by family. He wanted us to each open one gift that night, so I suspected something was up,” recalled Leslie. “I opened a photo album that had ‘The Mays’ engraved on the front. The album was filled with pictures of us, and the last page had an insert that read ‘Engagement photo?'” Awww. Their rustic autumn wedding at picturesque Briscoe Manor had everything we love: lush, bright florals; outdoor “I do’s;” and tons of candlelight at a party that lasted deep into the night. Following their moonlit ceremony, the newlyweds, along with 150 of their closest family and friends, feasted on pecan smoked pork loin with truffle mustard and chicken with Kentucky Bourbon teriyaki. Uh…yum! Congratulations to you both, Leslie and Robert, and may you enjoy a lifetime of love and happiness!
