What sprouted as a high school romance blossomed into Mary Margaret and Daniel’s quintessential love story and beautiful wedding. In their junior year of high school, Daniel asked Mary Margaret to attend a pool party together with mutual friends. A few years later, Daniel rented the patio at Mary Margaret’s favorite restaurant for just the two of them and popped the question. Afterward, an intimate celebratory dinner, they joined their families who were waiting inside at the bar. “It was the best night ever!” explained Mary Margaret. The best day ever? The big one, of course!

The couple married at the ornate Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Houston. Traditional white wedding floral arrangements bursting with roses and candle-lit lanterns lined the aisle. Mary Margaret carried her something borrowed—her mother’s Rosary Beads—wrapped around her white rose bouquet. But the bride’s favorite floral arrangement cascaded from the ceiling at the reception.

“Weston proposed in Brooklyn overlooking the water with the NYC skyline in the background,” remembers bride Liles. “It was absolutely breathtaking.” After finding inspiration within the pages of Weddings in Houston magazine, Liles planned a wedding that was both a “fun and memorable” affair with a “romantic” theme. “Our venue was beautiful without any decor, but I knew I wanted to dress it up in a big way for our day,” says the bride who describes a ballroom filled with greenery and colorful florals in a stunning palette of mauve, blush, and creams.

The celebration included personal touches such as a live painter, custom cocktail napkins to include their pets, with cute sayings: “Raise the woof” “Guard your drink” “Purr me another” and “Hightail it to the dance floor” and Weston playing “Tiny Dancer” by Elton John with the band on stage. The bride adds, “We also incorporated some very non traditional aspects—I had a Bridesman and Weston had a Best Woman.” Photographer Amy Maddox expertly captured the celebration through her light and airy photography style. “Everyone has asked us what our favorite part about our wedding was, but truly the whole day was just the best day ever. All of it coming together the way I’d very thoughtfully planned was so awesome!”

Join us in celebrating this sweet young couple’s romantic mauve, blush, and creams fall wedding, all stunningly documented by Amy Maddox Photography. Congratulations, Liles & Weston!
