White & Sage Green Spring Wedding

Monday, December 18th, 2017

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

Monday, March 27th, 2017

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

Wednesday, October 28th, 2015

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!

It’s true, everything is bigger in Texas- especially weddings. Just ask Houston bride Bella and her hubby about their 1,400-guest reception. The couple had a true Texas spring wedding with blooming orchids, an outdoor reception, and a 16-layer cake! Guests enjoyed the perfect weather and some good ‘ol Southern food: roasted beef, pico, beans and freshly squeezed Lemonade (mmm). Oh and did we mention how stunning Bella looked in her full-sleeve, chic lace bridal gown from Parvani Vida? Thanks Civic Photos for capturing all of the sweet deets from Bella and Irvin’s wedding, we’re in love! Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Romantic Hotel ZaZa Spring Wedding by Akil Bennett Photography

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

“We met at a charity camp for children with cancer called Candlelighter’s, back in El Paso,” recounts recent bride Paige. “Patrick was the counselor for the youngest boys and I was the counselor for the youngest girls. Patrick had a ‘tough guy’ exterior, but seeing him with those children, gentle and kind, melted my heart and I was immediately in love. By the end of the camp we were constantly talking and flirting, sharing music and books; it was a beautiful beginning to a beautiful relationship.” We’ll second that, Paige. And third it. And just melt over it right along with you, while we sigh over Akil Bennett’s gorgeous photos of your Hotel ZaZa spring wedding. Thank you so much for donating your time and love to children in need, and for sharing your beautiful day with our beautiful Houston brides. Congratulations!
