After meeting at the 18th hole of a golf tournament, Emily was struck by Will’s “kind and genuine personality”. A few months later, she still couldn’t get Will off her mind, so she took a leap of faith and messaged him. After the pair’s first date, they were inseparable.
When Jessica’s brother-in-law invited her over to teach a yoga class for him and a friend who was training for the Houston Marathon, she had no idea that she’d be meeting her future husband, Alex. “As cliché as it sounds, it was love at first sight,” explained Jessica. The couple began dating shortly after, and on November 6, 2020, Alex popped the big question during a family trip to Telluride, Colorado. Little did Jessica know, his whole family was in on the surprise! He proposed at the top of a mountain with his parents and siblings there to capture the moment on camera and celebrate with a bottle of bubbly.
Upon returning to Houston, the couple began looking for wedding venues, deciding on the elegant Astorian. “The Astorian is so breathtaking in and of itself, so I wanted soft white flowers and a lot of candlelight,” said Jessica. The floral wedding arch and canopies of white flowers and greenery cascading from the columns perfectly balanced Jessica and Alex’s wedding color palate against the Astorian’s rich architecture and 1920’s-esque tones. The tables creatively wrapped around each column, giving guests the feeling of dining in a lush garden with the Houston skyline peeking in through windows. Click here to read the rest of this post »
“Weston proposed in Brooklyn overlooking the water with the NYC skyline in the background,” remembers bride Liles. “It was absolutely breathtaking.” After finding inspiration within the pages of Weddings in Houston magazine, Liles planned a wedding that was both a “fun and memorable” affair with a “romantic” theme. “Our venue was beautiful without any decor, but I knew I wanted to dress it up in a big way for our day,” says the bride who describes a ballroom filled with greenery and colorful florals in a stunning palette of mauve, blush, and creams.
The celebration included personal touches such as a live painter, custom cocktail napkins to include their pets, with cute sayings: “Raise the woof” “Guard your drink” “Purr me another” and “Hightail it to the dance floor” and Weston playing “Tiny Dancer” by Elton John with the band on stage. The bride adds, “We also incorporated some very non traditional aspects—I had a Bridesman and Weston had a Best Woman.” Photographer Amy Maddox expertly captured the celebration through her light and airy photography style. “Everyone has asked us what our favorite part about our wedding was, but truly the whole day was just the best day ever. All of it coming together the way I’d very thoughtfully planned was so awesome!”
