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.
“My favorite moment was dancing with my dad. We always clown together, so our dance was definitely a show to watch and remember,” Elandrea adds.
We couldn’t be happier for these two. Congrats and best wishes from all of us at Weddings in Houston!

Daniel knew the moment he met Stephanie that there was something special about her; within a matter of months, the pair had become great friends. But when Stephanie moved to Mexico to study abroad, she assumed that she had “fallen off his radar,” and they lost touch. A few years later, when Stephanie was living in Houston as a teacher, the couple reconnected in a way that took Stephanie by surprise: “He would call and we would talk for hours,” recounts the bride. “So much time had passed that I was convinced we were going to pick up where we left off as friends, but I was wrong.” Turns out, Daniel had been in love with Stephanie all along, and was just waiting for the perfect opportunity to re-enter her life. The lovebirds tied the knot surrounded by 150 of their nearest and dearest in a beautiful garden ceremony at Hotel Galvez, followed by a romantic champagne brunch on the terrace. The day was made even more special by the presence of the bride’s father, a disabled Vietnam veteran, who was released from the hospital only days before the wedding: “My favorite moment was my dad walking me down the aisle as my mom held him up on his other side,” says Stephanie. “It was a true fairy tale—I married the man of my dreams and my dad was able to give me away.” We’re so happy for you, Daniel and Stephanie!

Jane met Andrew during his first week of training in her department at Four Seasons Dallas. Little did she know that after being transferred to Four Seasons Whistler they would still keep in touch. A year later after traveling back and forth to visit their mutual friends, they had their first date and the rest was history. Jane and Andrew decided that it was only appropriate, as former Four Seasons employees, to celebrate their wedding at Four Seasons Hotel Houston. “We wanted a simple yet polished design. We decorated the ballroom with soft pink, silver, gold and pops of orange to blend in with the chandeliers,” says Jane. After the reception, guests met at the pool to continue celebrating with drinks, late-night snacks, adult snow cones and a DJ from LG Entertainment that kept everyone dancing until 2 a.m. Sounds like quite the party, huh? Just wait ‘til you see the photos by DC Stanley Photography. Congratulations and best wishes to the newlyweds!
