After starting their wedding planning and vendor search with Weddings In Houston, Marcus and Rachel chose luxurious hacienda-inspired wedding venue The Bell Tower on 34th for their early spring wedding. The venue’s picturesque architecture made for a perfect setting for dreamy wedding day portraits, stunningly captured by Houston wedding photographer Civic Photos.

For their ceremony, the couple took advantage of the versatile venue’s elegant on-site chapel. Rachel walked down the aisle strewn with rose petals to say, ‘I do’ in a traditional wedding ceremony amidst 200 of their nearest and dearest. The romantic, garden-inspired reception décor featured ivory and dusty rose floral arrangements by Plants N’ Petals, beautifully complimenting the grand ballroom. The newlyweds made their grand exit under a shower of rose petals tossed by their guests.

We love a good “road obstacle” proposal story…don’t you?? “Brett proposed at my family ranch on Easter weekend of 2017,” bride Ashley tells us. “On the road leading up to our ranch my uncle and dad had strategically placed a large branch in the middle of the road, so while we were driving, we had to stop to move it. When I starting walking back to the car, I turned around and Brett was on one knee asking me to marry him! My whole family and Brett’s parents were at the ranch to celebrate afterwards. It was the perfect weekend!”  But here’s what wasn’t so perfect:

Elegant Spring Wedding At The Astorian

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!
