If you’re a Houston Wedding Blog regular, y’all know how much we love it when a GROOM shares his wedding us…and Timothy is just such a groom! He tells us that he met his beloved Oralia at Tomball High School back in 2009, where, “I used to sell her candy and mix tapes in the hallway.” Awww… After attending college together, and falling head over heels in love, Timothy decided to pop the question with a down-on-one-knee December proposal in a “winter wonderland” scene he created, with accompaniment from John Legend’s “All of Me” playing in the background (if you’re not in love with this groom yet, you may want to check your romance meter to make sure it’s operating properly). For their midsummer nuptials, the pair picked Waters Edge, one of our absolute favorite waterfront venues, where they said their vows beside sparkling blue water, beneath a glittering chandelier, framed by billowing white chiffon. Post-vow festivities took the newlyweds and their nearest and dearest indoors, for a high-energy party, where live music, gourmet comfort food and a “draped” wedding cake from Susie’s Cakes & Confections ensure that a fabulous time was had by all. Thank you, Timothy, for sharing your love for Oralia with us and our readers!
Newly graduated from college and just starting their careers, Kellie says figuring out how to budget and plan her dream wedding to Jacob was no small challenge, but one she embraced fully. The couple’s church ceremony and fresh, fun, family-focused celebration at picturesque Waterpoint on Lake Conroe reflected their backgrounds, with table numbers corresponding to ages of their childhoods (table 5, for instance, displayed photos of Kellie and Jacob at age 5). The bride’s accessories included a bracelet made by Jacob’s grandmother and a pair of white flats decorated by her aunt with bits of lace from her Oleg Cassini bridal gown. The venue’s lovely lakefront vista made decor needs minimal (HEB Blooms supplied softly tousled flowers in shades of pink, blush and cream), and a candy buffet made the festivities just that much sweeter.
