Blush & Cream Houston Wedding by J. Cogliandro Photography

Tuesday, August 9th, 2016

This Houston wedding story is going to give you all the feels, so be prepared! Lindsey and Drew met in February of 2012 at the Philadelphia airport’s international check-in. They were on their way to a 10-day adventure in Israel with a group organization, and by the end of the trip they had each separately told their friends that they found their person. Lindsey had no clue Drew had said the same thing to his friends that she had, until the night of their rehearsal dinner, when Drew’s best man recalled in his speech, “Drew came home and said he’d met the girl he was going to marry.” Goosebumps. Drew absolutely insisted on proposing in a way that would mean the world to Lindsey. He had been working with Lindsey’s boss to get her to Philadelphia airport’s international check-in for a fake business trip…and he proposed right there where they’d first met many years ago. “The area was empty except for one older security staff member, who told us we had restored his faith in humanity,” the bride recounts. After spending the entire day in Philadelphia to celebrate as a newly engaged couple, Lindsey and Drew were returned home to a surprise celebration with their families! The pair then started to plan their Houston wedding. With 230 of their friends and loved ones in attendance, Lindsey and Drew said, “I do.” However, they took the traditional wedding series of events into their own hands. One of their favorite memories was their “first look” at Discovery Green, after which they stopped with their entire wedding party to have a pre-ceremony drink while taking pictures with J. Cogliandro Photography. (We seriously love this idea!) It’s safe to say that Lindsey and Drew have restored our faith in humanity, too. We couldn’t be happier for this sweet couple!

Ivory, Pink & Gold Wedding by D. Jones Photography

Tuesday, December 8th, 2015

Lacey and Tyler spent their entire childhood not knowing that they lived a half mile away from each other until their paths crossed in college. All it took was a day of floating the Guadalupe River with friends for Lacey and Tyler to meet and the rest was history. Four years later Tyler decided to put a ring on it at St. Paul’s Methodist Church where she had always dreamed of, “I had always envisioned getting married there since I was a little girl and he knew how much I loved that building,” Lacey says. Lacey wed Tyler in a classic Reem Acra gown in front of 270 of their nearest and dearest. “I always say that marrying Tyler was the most natural thing I have ever done,” adds Lacey. If you think their love story is sweet, just wait ‘til you see the pics by D. Jones Photography. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!
