We partied with them at Bering’s for their registry and stationery adventure, we chatted with them about their love story, and now we are excited to welcome Astro star reliever Ryan Pressly and former Dallas Cowboys cheerleader Kat Rogers back to the blog…this time with their beautiful New Year’s Eve wedding!
Adrianne and Brian’s fall wedding celebration at lovely, leisurely Pine Forest Country Club was the perfect reflection of their relationship, in its beauty, ease and joy. The pair met on Match.com, had their first date at a Fort Worth pub, and got engaged after cooking dinner together one evening at Brian’s apartment. For their October nuptials, the bride wore her mother’s wedding dress, which had been handmade by Adrianne’s grandmother. Radiant in the fall day’s natural sunlight, Adrianne joined Brian for photographs on the lush, green grounds of Pine Forest Country Club. The newlyweds joined 150 friends and family members for a relaxing celebration in the club’s light-filled ballroom, surrounded by roses, hydrangeas, greenery and “a touch of peach stock,” the bride notes. “The food was delicious,” Adrianne says of the club’s renowned culinary offerings. She adds that walking down the aisle at her church ceremony, and dancing to the evening’s playlist of pop and country tunes (and especially her first dance with groom Brian) are among her most cherished memories of her Houston fall wedding.

“We didn’t meet by locking eyes across a crowded bar, or bump into each other at a crowded coffee shop like you see in the movies, or even get introduced by mutual friends,” says Houston bride Katherine. “Our love story started with a simple swish of the finger… yes, we met on Tinder in Austin, Texas!”
Former high-school friends Andrea and Matt went their separate ways after school–Matt to the Marines, Andrea to college then to work on a cruise ship. And it wasn’t until a full 14 years later that they reconnected at the funeral for a mutual friend’s father, and discovered they had both relocated to Houston. After hanging out casually for awhile, Matt finally worked up the courage to ask Andrea out on a “real” date. “He really had some game!” Andrea recounts, noting that her future husband was “a true Southern gentleman.” Showing up each time “in a spotless, freshly washed truck, he picked me up for concerts, dinners out, movies, and he even sent me flowers!” she says. While finding time to plan their wedding was the biggest challenge for attorney Andrea and mechanical engineer Matt, they managed to pull off the celebration of a lifetime at The Astorian. Surrounded by a rich, wintry wedding color palette of burgundy, navy and gold, the pair and their 220 guests feasted on fried-oyster nachos, stuffed pork tenderloin and mascarpone mashed potatoes from Cordúa Catering, along with a six-tier bride’s cake and a U.S. Marine-theme groom’s cake, both from Cakes By Gina. We’re grateful to newlyweds Andrea and Matt for sharing their burgundy and gold winter wedding, and their love story, with us. Thanks, too, to Ama By Aisha for the lovely photos of Andrea and Matt’s burgundy and gold winter wedding celebration!
