When life gives you oranges and lemons… you create a bright and beautiful citrus-themed wedding shoot!
Aerospace engineers Jasmine and Corey first met while working at United Space Alliance, a NASA contractor. “Jasmine had joined some friends of mine on one of their infamous ‘ergonomic break’ walks and they stopped by my office cube on the way outside,” recalls Corey. “We started talking to one another and never really stopped hanging out since that moment 11 years ago.”
Following a romantic proposal in Fredricksburg, the couple tied the knot in a colorful wedding at waterfront venue Waters Edge, flawlessly planned and styled by Claudia De Velasco of A Day To Remember. Jasmine and Corey pledged their love in an “informal outdoor ceremony” beneath a chiffon draped canopy adorned with white, red and orange flowers by premier Houston florists Dream Bouquet. Afterward, the newlyweds joined 168 of their closest friends and family members for a festive ballroom reception filled with drinks, dancing, yard games, music, and a photo booth from LG Event Entertainment & Production. For the reception decor, the couple kept things “casual and colorful” featuring lush vibrant flowers and chic lounge furniture, with a vivid wedding palette of pink, orange, and red with iceberg blue accents. Favorite moments for the bride and groom included, “The ceremony, the first dance, and partying with family and friends!”
We are so thrilled to feature this lovely couple and their beautiful waterfront wedding. Congratulations, Jasmine & Corey!
Houston bride, Elandrea, had her eye on Mark for a while in college. “Luckily we had a mutual friend that talked to Mark for me. We exchanged numbers, became friends and started dating a year later,” she explains. When Mark started to think up the most creative way possible to propose, he channeled his tech background and created a game app that he was going to convince Elandrea to play. “He asked me to get my nails done, which struck me as odd, since was really not in his nature to do so. When I came home he also said that he wanted to take me for dinner,” adds Elandrea. “Before we left, he told me he wanted me to test out the game he was working on. I began to play the game like normal, and all of a sudden the song ‘Thinking Out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran came on, while images of us were popping up. Eventually a poem came on the screen, and then (here it comes!) a message that said, ‘Will you marry me,’” she recounts.
The lovebirds tied the knot in front of their nearest and dearest at Hotel Galvez & Spa. “My aim for the wedding was a tropical feel with beautiful, vibrant colors,” says Elandrea. Their color palette of orange, purple, fuchsia and gold set the tone for a bright, fun wedding atmosphere.
We couldn’t be happier for these two. Congrats and best wishes from all of us at Weddings in Houston!
