Champagne, Lavender, Sage & Blue Houston Wedding

Monday, August 15th, 2016

Kelly and Tom met at work, just across the hall from each other. So let’s set the picture here: These two peeking across the hallway—anxious to see one another, butterflies fluttering. After many group outings, Tom finally asked Kelly out officially. Kelly remembers their first date like it was yesterday; laughing, talking, and Tom’s incredibly fun personality. You know how they say that travel is the true test of compatibility? Well, these two passed that test with flying colors! Of all the traveling they did, Kelly was most excited to experience Brazil, where Tom spent his childhood. And Tom couldn’t wait to share her with his home—especially with the family and friends he hadn’t seen in over 10 years! Little did Kelly know that Tom had asked Kelly’s family for her hand in marriage prior to the couple’s South American sojourn. And what a proposal it was! In the beautiful white-sand beach town of Buzios, Tom proposed to Kelly…on a cliff overlooking the ocean. The couple recalls, “We followed a few days later with a lot of celebrating with friends that now mean so much to us both!” Their wedding was a vision of sophistication and charm with hues of French blue, sage green, lavender and champagne—all alluding to a picturesque French Country setting. We have no doubt that Tom shed a tear or two when he saw Kelly walk down the aisle in her stunning Rivini Gown from Mia Bridal Couture. The couple’s guests were just as in love with the wedding as Kelly and Tom are with each other. Kelly recounts that guests commented that the celebration was “more like a movie or a dream, so intimate and gorgeous.” Susie’s Cakes & Confections offered up a perfect rendition of a French-inspired wedding cake, with four tiers of decadent vanilla and raspberry sweetness that could seriously make you feel like you were in Paris. Thank you so much, Kelly and Tom, for sharing your joy with us…et félicitations à vous deux!
