Join us just north of Houston in The Woodlands at The Peach Orchard for this sweet styled wedding shoot! Rachel Driskell Photography brings this shoot to life with her signature light and airy style.

The Peach Orchard is a breathtaking wedding venue where old meets new. The bright whites of the venue make the perfect backdrop for this styled shoot’s plum, magenta, and apricot theme. Inside the chapel, natural light pours in from the huge windows, illuminating the original wood beams and whitewashed brick. The light, airy whites of the architecture are complemented by the rich wedding color palate. Then, the fruit-inspired colors come to life at the altar as rich, lush florals cascade from the trendy round arch. Finally, flowers make an eye-catching focal point to showcase the star of this shoot: our blushing bride. Click here to read the rest of this post »

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!

Alexis got engaged to her high school sweetheart, soul mate, best friend, and spiritual partner Trevor after an unexpected proposal. After picking Alexis up from a trip to the ER, Trevor asked if she still wanted to go out for date night. Never one to turn down a steak dinner, Alexis said yes and went to get ready. “When Alexis came out of my room, the balcony doors were open and rose petals and lights were everywhere,” recalls Trevor. After a heartfelt speech and loads of happy tears, Trevor asked Alexis to be his wife. “The setting of the apartment is especially special because not only was it romantic and intimate, but it was the first place we really experienced dating in the same city after being long distance for 4 years.”

The couple wed at The Astorian in a “very classic but ethereal” ceremony, under a custom altar built by the groom. Cascading greenery, lush white floral arrangements and floating candles filled the industrial-chic venue. Alexis recounts loving the hanging vines over the monogrammed dance floor while her favorite moments were “My first touch and prayer with my husband and my first look with my dad.”

We’re delighted to share with you this ethereal wedding at The Astorian, gorgeously captured by Houston wedding photographer Ama By Aisha. Congratulations, Alexis & Trevor!
