Though they met many years ago through mutual friends, back then, “The timing just wasn’t right,” says Kevin’s future bride, Julie.

“I was still in school, and long distance relationships can be difficult, so we remained friends for a couple years, hanging out with friends when I would come back to Houston.” Then one fateful day, Kevin asked Julie out on their first real date. “I thought, ‘He is so handsome, and I already know he is such a wonderful guy,’ so I said, ‘Yes.'” Fast-forward to a surprise midweek vacation to Galveston, which found the couple enjoying cocktails at the romantic rooftop bar of The Tremont House. I thought, “‘Oh my gosh, is he going to propose??'” Julie recounts. “But it didn’t happen.” The next morning, as the couple was leaving their hotel, “We walked down to the front of the hotel overlooking the beach…and right up to an arrangement with a bunch of photos of us, flowers, and a sign that read, ‘Marry me.’ I was in shock! I had no idea what was happening at first, he had caught me so off guard.” While planning their wedding, both Julie and Kevin, along with the rest of the city of Houston, were caught off guard by a much less pleasant surprise: Hurricane Harvey.

Gold, Hot Pink & Black Wedding at Chateau Cocomar

Sometimes reconnecting with your high school boyfriend is a good thing—just ask Houston bride Codi. After graduating college and moving back home, Codi and Austin fell in love all over again and decided this time it was for forever. Codi brought a new meaning to true Houston glam when she wed Austin in a feather-accented Stephen Yearick gown from Brickhouse Bridal. Her vision of a glamorous, fairytale wedding came to life at Chateau Cocomar. “Instead of using the typical blush and white color palette, I added hot pink and black for a more unique look,” she says. Black sequin linens and mercury glass candle holders were just a couple of details that added a romantic yet glamorous look to the decor. We couldn’t help but swoon, and know you will, too, after seeing the lovely photos. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!
