Sweet Summer Peach and Blue Wedding

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON Spring 2015 | Real Wedding Feature

Lara & Nick ~ July 12, 2014

We like to think of Lara and Nick’s meeting as a bright silver lining on a very dark cloud: The couple first encountered one another in July 2011 in Fort Payne, Ala., where both were volunteers assisting in tornado relief efforts. Their long-distance relationship—he was in North Carolina, she lived in Houston—blossomed, and in 2012, Nick moved to Houston. With its cornflower-and-peach color scheme and steak-and-lobster menu, the pair’s summer wedding was true Houston classic. The gracious bride adds, “It was also Nick’s brother-in-law’s (he was Nick’s best man) birthday, so after his speech we gave him a cheesecake and sang him, ‘Happy Birthday.’ It was pretty cool to see all 150 people join in and celebrate.”

Sweet Spring, Texas, June Wedding by Ama Photography & Cinema

Selling cell phones might not be the world’s most glamorous job, but it can pay off—with a husband, for instance! It was on the floor of a Sprint retail store where Gesselle met her beloved John, the man she’d eventually marry in a lovely June outdoor ceremony followed by a fun-filled dining-and-dancing reception where burlap, orchids and candlelight played against one another for a perfect rustic-elegant ambiance. Big thanks to Aisha Khan of Ama Photography & Cinema for the lovely photos, and our heartfelt best wishes to the newlyweds!

Sanctuary at Water Oak Wedding with Crystals, Cigars, Whiskey and Canine Friends

It wasn’t until her dad encouraged her to speak to cute ranch-hand Nathan (“my dad, who NEVER encouraged his daughters to date,” she laughs), that Louisiana-born Abbie took a second look at the shy guy who worked on her family’s hunting lease. And she liked what she saw. So much so, that when Nathan dropped on one knee and presented her with that unmistakable Tiffany box in November of last year, “I just threw my arms around him and of course I said, ‘Yes!!’” The couple’s summer wedding, coordinated by Gray & Associates Events at Lake Conroe’s picturesque Sanctuary at Water Oak served up Southern favorites including seafood bisque and blackened catfish, along with hand-rolled cigars, a swank whiskey bar, and lots of lively dancing. The pair’s pups Ellie and Boozer were on hand to watch the couple say their vows, and if there ever were two sweeter flower girls than the tulle-frocked cuties at Abbie’s side, we don’t know how or where. Thanks so much, Abbie and Nathan, for sharing your joy with us and our brides. Thanks, too, to Jenna Christine, for the selections of fine photos!
