Andrew was a baseball player at the University of Houston and Devan was an intern for the department when these college sweethearts first met in March of 2016. Fast-track to Nov. of 2018: Devan and Andrew visited a Christmas tree farm to take Christmas pictures with friends. “Andrew and I were posing when he told me to open one of the prop presents we had and the ring was inside,” recalls the bride. “Then he had a surprise engagement party right after!”
The couple wed in a sunshine-filled indoor ceremony followed by a lighthearted reception featuring a photo booth and light up foam sticks, all stunningly captured by Emily Figurelli Photography. The wedding decor was modern and chic with a sophisticated palette of navy, gold, white and champagne. After sipping on champagne and a night full of dancing, the newlyweds exited under an arch of sparklers.
We are so thrilled to feature this lovely couple and their gorgeous navy, champagne, gold and white chic wedding, captured in such detail by Houston wedding photographer Emily Figurelli Photography. Congratulations, Devan & Andrew!
Emily and Nicolas met when Nicolas was overseeing a soccer league and training the kids Emily was a nanny to. He was known as the “Hot Cuban Soccer Coach” and she was called “Romper Girl” because Emily started dressing cuter in hopes of Nicolas noticing her…and it worked! “I knew from almost the first moment that he would be my husband.” On Sept. 10, 2019, Nicolas proposed to Emily with a beautiful custom designed oval solitaire ring on a beach in Costa Maya in the presence of his family.
Emily, being a fabulous wedding photographer, has seen countless variations of color palettes, themes and ideas, so for her very own wedding she notes, “I wanted to mix in the slightest bit of boho in our otherwise modern and simplistic wedding theme. We ended up with touches of black to contrast the neutrals, white, champagne and blush.” The couple said their vows amidst 80 loved ones in an intimate al fresco ceremony before commencing with a joyous indoor reception. The biggest obstacle the couple faced while planning their fall wedding was “Just trying to make sure that, even during Covid, we were being as safe as possible, but still got to have the wedding of our dreams. It was so tiring planning the wedding, but when the wedding day finally came, none of it mattered and it was the most beautiful and perfect day!”

Easton and Morghann met in 2012 while Morghann was attending college in Arizona. However, their time together in Arizona was brief because Morghann moved back to Texas to be closer to her family. After six months of a long-distance relationship, Easton visited Morghann for her birthday…and never left! Eight years and a romantic proposal later, Morghann walked down a custom monogrammed white aisle runner to say ‘I do’ to Easton amidst 185 loved ones.
For the reception, the couple added an edgy, modern touch to their venue’s french setting, with a bold palette of black and neutral tones and many personal touches.“There were so many touches to personalize the guest experience,” says the bride. “We had a black-tie event and everyone loved being able to dress up for the night and have a wonderful night out.” The celebratory evening concluded with the newlyweds exiting under a shower of sparklers then enjoying a spectacular fireworks display.“The firework show was a special moment we loved sharing with our guests!”
