Oddly enough, Lexie and Andy never crossed paths despite years of hanging out at the same restaurants, bars…even in the same volleyball league. But all that changed when a night out to watch a football game became a four-hour-long date. It wasn’t long before Andy realized he’d found something special with Lexie. Knowing her love of books, Andy presented the unsuspecting Lexie with a book to “read” the night before the two embarked on a family cruise. Flipping to the last page, an unsuspecting Lexie found a beautiful diamond ring, and took her first step on the path to forever love. Click here to read the rest of this post »
Agave Estates may have been hit hard by Hurricane Harvey (the pastoral wedding and events enclave in Katy was forced to close its Agave Road venue as a result of the storm), but Nicci and Drew’s lovely wedding demonstrates, beautifully, that this beloved Houston-area wedding location is very much alive, and just a charming as ever. The couple’s first visit to Agave Estates actually sealed the deal on having a Texas wedding. Click here to read the rest of this post »
There’s not a ton of time for med students to just…chill. But Michelle and Stephen made the most of theirs, spent watching “bad reality TV,” but doing something extraordinary: They fell in love. What started as a down-time friendship, blossomed into a forever bond, sealed by Stephen’s quiet, intimate proposal during a lakeside walk. The pair didn’t have tons of free time, either, to spend on designing the wedding of their dreams. THAT was handled by the expert floral artists at League City’s Haute Flowers & Events, who fulfilled Michelle’s fantasy of a “garden-themed, magical wedding, filled with tones of blush pink, gold and green.” Infused with light, fresh springtime touches everywhere, and, most of all, love, the couple’s country club wedding was both simple and splendid, and we are SO happy to share it with y’all here!

Fatima and Matthew really are the ultimate sweethearts. Their journey began in elementary school—fourth grade to be exact. Although their paths separated for a short time while they attended different high schools, they reconnected during junior year and that’s where it all finally began! Fatima recalls “what began as ‘young high-school love’ developed into a relationship filled with deep affection, trials and tribulations that we were able to surpass, trust, and the development of something deeper that is unexplainable with simple words.” *sniff sniff* Aargh, we told ourselves we weren’t gonna cry…but just wait for it, this proposal will definitely seal the deal on those tears. Matthew chose a day where Fatima was off work and he knew she would be home. Around 10:30 a.m., Fatima received a package with “Get Ready My Love” written on the outside in script…and inside was a perfect outfit and a note instructing her to be ready by noon. Matthew’s parents picked up Fatima and brought her to Mary Jo Peckam Park, which is a very special place to the couple. It was where Matthew gave Fatima a promise ring on their first anniversary. Sniff sniff again. Ahead of her was an anxiously-waiting boy holding flowers, and a trail of photos and ornaments hanging from the trees. As they stood under photos of memories from the many years they had spent together, Matthew got down on one knee and finally asked Fatima to marry him! Yep, here come the tears. After a day together, the two enjoyed a dinner with both of their families. Fatima and Matthew’s wedding was truly picturesque, complete with a light and fresh color palette of blush, ivory, and gold hues. They vowed their love for one another in a formal Catholic ceremony, and celebrated afterwards with a dreamy reception at Chateau Polonez. Fatima and Matthew said, “Our main focus was not only to celebrate our love, but to enjoy this celebration with our family and friends.” Fatima was a stunning bride in a lace trumpet-style gown designed by Allure Bridals from Parvani Vida Bridal and Formal—where she also found her accessories, bridal party dresses and gown preservation! Now, that’s just a one-stop-shop of perfection. The entire event was documented by Ama Photography & Cinema—and let’s be honest, these photos are just gorgeous. Many congrats to the beautiful couple!
