Jennifer and Andrew met in paradise while on an excursion during a company trip in Mexico. Andrew asked Jennifer to share a locker, and the rest is history. In March 2019, Andrew set up a surprise engagement on the sandy beaches of Kauai, Hawaii. “He made reservations for dinner at the Sheraton, but before dinner, we were walking on the beach. He had hired a photographer who was posing as a random beach go-er. They offered to take our photo, and after a couple of shots, I moved positions, and when I turned around, he was down on one knee,” Jennifer remembers.

Rustic Autumn Wedding At Briscoe Manor

With a partner as sweet as Robert, it’s no wonder why Leslie said, “Yes,” to him. “He proposed at our home on Christmas Eve before being joined by family. He wanted us to each open one gift that night, so I suspected something was up,” recalled Leslie. “I opened a photo album that had ‘The Mays’ engraved on the front. The album was filled with pictures of us, and the last page had an insert that read ‘Engagement photo?'” Awww. Their rustic autumn wedding at picturesque Briscoe Manor had everything we love: lush, bright florals; outdoor “I do’s;” and tons of candlelight at a party that lasted deep into the night. Following their moonlit ceremony, the newlyweds, along with 150 of their closest family and friends, feasted on pecan smoked pork loin with truffle mustard and chicken with Kentucky Bourbon teriyaki. Uh…yum! Congratulations to you both, Leslie and Robert, and may you enjoy a lifetime of love and happiness!

Coral, Gold, & Blush College Station Wedding

College is a time for growth preparation for life as an adult. For Heather and Nick, it also provided their chance encounter. Meeting at Texas A&M’s “Fish Camp” orientation program, the two began a sweet romance. During Heather’s senior year of college, while she worked in Arizona for six weeks Nick came to visit her and took her on a gorgeous hike through the Grand Canyon. With the breath-taking view as a backdrop, Nick popped the question. “With tears already streaming down my face, my exact words were ‘YES, but there’s nothing in the box.'” Startled by her response, Nick began searching for the ring and thankfully found it next to him, and (shaking a little), slid it onto her finger. “I was laughing and crying at the same time,” Heather says. The couple decided to take their nuptials back to the place where they first met, and exchanged vows at Peach Creek Ranch in College Station. With its rustic charm, the barn house, surrounded by cozy cottages, provided them with their own slice of Heaven for the day. Congratulations, Heather and Nick, on finding your forever love!

Vintage Outdoor Texas Wedding

Paul caught Gillian’s eye from across the table during a mutual friend’s bon voyage party back in 2010. Unfortunately the pair didn’t exchange numbers that night, and Gillian went back to San Francisco for school. A few months later while she was home for Christmas break and hoping to find a date for New Year’s Eve. “During happy hour I mentioned my to my friend that she should have Paul get in touch with me. Three minutes later my phone rang, and it was Paul,” recounts Gillian. They immediately hit it off, and tied the knot six years later. Gillian walked down the aisle in style wearing a tea-length eyelet Oscar de la Renta dress from Joan Pillow Bridal Salon, and paired it with pink Manolo Blahnik pumps (major Carrie Bradshaw moment). “It was a playful dress that fit like a dream. When I saw it on the runway, I knew this was it,” adds Gillian. Paul and Gillian danced the night away with their family and friends, and made a true Texan move by stopping at Whataburger before attending the after party. Sounds like one fun night, right? Check out the sweet pics below. Congrats to the lovely couple!

Outdoor Spring Wedding by Civic Photos

It’s true, everything is bigger in Texas- especially weddings. Just ask Houston bride Bella and her hubby about their 1,400-guest reception. The couple had a true Texas spring wedding with blooming orchids, an outdoor reception, and a 16-layer cake! Guests enjoyed the perfect weather and some good ‘ol Southern food: roasted beef, pico, beans and freshly squeezed Lemonade (mmm). Oh and did we mention how stunning Bella looked in her full-sleeve, chic lace bridal gown from Parvani Vida? Thanks Civic Photos for capturing all of the sweet deets from Bella and Irvin’s wedding, we’re in love! Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!
