Anita and Bill met as neighbors at a house party during Lights In The Heights in 2017 while they bonded over having daughters. “I was a little shy but his constant warmth and helpfulness lead us to become fast friends who found had similar stories: some happy, some painful,” recounts Anita. “We quickly found ourselves and our girls to be inseparable and decided we are better together than apart!” While on a trip to Bill’s hometown of New Orleans, Bill took Anita and their daughters to explore Jackson Square. “I watched our girls running around in joy in a post-Christmas mist thinking how lucky we all were to find one another,” recalls Anita. “I turned to look and found Bill on his knee proposing! Needless to say, I was blown away and passersby all stopped to watch as our girls whooped all around us. I said yes and the rest is history… “

For their summer wedding, it was only natural that the couple would tie the knot at Texas creole restaurant Brennan’s of Houston for a classic New Orleans brunch. “Brennan’s of Houston was the perfect location and the courtyard was beautiful for our outdoor morning ceremony,” says the bride. “We chose live music and had a small intimate wedding. Our girls were the flower girls and only our family and our neighbor family (which is so fitting since that is where we met) attended.” For their reception meal seafood dominated the menu, paying tribute to the bride’s Croatian heritage and the groom’s New Orleans upbringing, where guests dined on crab cakes, Gulf coast snapper, and Banana’s foster. Since their brunch wedding was on Father’s Day, the couple had a variety of wedding favors for their guests including cigars for the men, gift sets for the kids, and jams from Croatia where Anita and her family are from. It was a series of perfect moments,” says Anita. “Two people who didn’t expect love again were able to find it literally right outside their doors…” 

Isn’t their love story the sweetest? We’re so happy to feature this gorgeous Houston couple and share their intimate brunch wedding with y’all. Join us in celebrating their love by scrolling through these beautiful images from Blanca Duran. Congratulations, Anita & Bill!

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. Congratulations to the newlyweds!  Click here to read the rest of this post »

“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!”
