After meeting through mutual friends, Michael and Kelley found themselves smitten with each other, right from the get-go. Their connection soon turned into romance, and after five happy years, Michael decided it was time to make things official. One fateful day after brunch, Michael and Kelley took their dog, Dunkin, out for a walk…which ultimately turned into a memory Kelley will always cherish, after Kelley noticed a pink heart tag on the dog’s collar that read, “Mom, can we keep him?” and on the other side, “Will you marry me?” OK, guys, how sweet is that? Michael’s creative proposal worked, and the following May, Kelley and Michael tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony at the same church where the bride’s parents had been married. The pair’s spring Astorian wedding reception had it all, from the elegant decor and the spectacular city view, to fantastic entertainment and exquisite food. Their 275 guests were treated to the sublime cuisine of Cordúa Catering. “Cordúa Catering knocked it out of the park,” notes the bride. “They provided the traditional carving station with some fun, modern options like the Mac & Cheese Bar, the Raw Seafood Bar, and a Salad Wall.” Yum! Yet the best moment for Kelley and Michael was “…The Astorian’s view of the sunset on downtown Houston. It was breathtaking and a moment we will never forget!” Congratulations to you both!

Heading off to study at Texas A&M to prepare for their future, Logen and Andrew soon learned just how rewarding that decision would be, for each of them. As a member of the college volleyball team, Logen attended a beach bonfire for university athletes where she crossed paths with Andrew and instantly became smitten. It didn’t take long before Andrew knew he’d found the love of his life in Logen, proposing to her following a volunteering event the pair did together. Click here to read the rest of this post »

White & Sage Green Spring Wedding

Joanna met Shane at their freshman college orientation, quickly sparking a friendship during tutoring sessions for chemistry class (wink, wink). However, they didn’t have their first date until junior year, on Valentine’s Day. “I suppose when you wait that long for a date, you have to go BIG or go home!” the bride says. Just one week after graduating, Shane popped the question while on a hiking trip with Joanna. A custom engagement ring made for a truly unforgettable graduation gift. The ceremony took place at Ashton Gardens in the soft glow of the glass-enclosed chapel. There, the pair exchanged personal written vows in front of 155 guests. The celebration continued in Ashton Gardens’ timeless ballroom, with a feast featuring giant coconut shrimp and, ’cause this here is Texas, y’all, succulent steak. Joanna and Shane ended the night amidst a throng of bubbles for a magical exit. Best wishes to you guys as you start a new adventure together!

Colorful Spring Wedding by Serendipity Photography

Almost a decade of dating and an intense game of “Super Mario World” brought childhood acquaintances Jennifer and Sean together forever.

“It happened at home, which is very us. He had somehow managed to write ‘Will you marry me?’ in a ‘Super Mario World’ game,” Jennifer says, though she didn’t realize at first that the words were meant for her!  
A resounding “yes” and 11 months later, the couple wed in a lush garden on a sunny March day among 68 of their closest friends and family.

“We knew that we didn’t want a huge wedding,” Jennifer says. “We loved how intimate and personal it felt and that we were able to spend time with everyone who attended.” 

Adding to the intimacy of the affair, Jennifer’s sister designed all of the couple’s wedding invitations and stationery, and Sean’s best friend officiated the ceremony!

Jennifer and Sean booked their dream photographer, Serendipity Photography, to capture their bright floral arrangements, lush table designs and joyous dancing.

“Right from the start, we knew we wanted Serendipity as our photographers,” Jennifer says. “I’ve been following them on their blog for a few years, and I really love their style. Alice and Eric are awesome people as well.”

Blush, Ivory & Gold Wedding

Kristen and Clayton were first introduced through mutual friends while attending a concert in Downtown Houston. He was determined to meet Kristen again, but the next day Clayton had plans to visit Austin for the weekend. “During the drive, he was contemplating whether or not to turn around and go back to Houston so that he could meet me. Clayton made it to Highway 71 and decided to call our mutual friend, who promised him the chance to see me again if he turned around. Clayton did exactly that. He asked me out on a date and we have been inseparable since,” says Kristen. Two and a half years later Clayton got down on one knee and asked Kristen to marry him in front of the Waterwall. The pair planned a simple, yet elegant springtime affair with the help of Plants N’ Petals and EB Inc Event Rentals & Design for 250 of their nearest and dearest. “Although it rained on our wedding day, I couldn’t believe how perfect it was! There was never a dull moment on the dance floor,” adds Kristen. Congrats to the newlyweds, we wish you the best!
