Anna had been dreaming of her wedding day since she was a little girl so when Jack, her college sweetheart, proposed she was looking forward to every aspect of the planning process…but then the global pandemic hit and the wedding had to be postponed. “Instead of worrying about napkin colors and floral arrangements, I was filling hand sanitizer bottles and making sure each table was spaced 6 feet apart,” says the bride. Fortunately, love conquered all, and the wedding day Anna dreamed about came to life at Iron Manor. “We wanted an atmosphere that represented both of our personalities—the industrial yet avant-garde ambiance of the Iron Manor did just that,” notes the bride. “From the venue’s vaulted ceilings and extravagant chandeliers to the breathtaking florals, every detail of our day was truly perfect.”
The couple pledged their love in Iron Manor’s grand Iron Chapel amidst 235 of their loved ones. The reception décor was modern and elegant with a romantic color palette of blush, burgundy and gold. A unique and personal touch was a scroll that flowed off the cake table with hand-scripted lyrics of the song from the couple’s first date and dance. “For Jack and me to say that we were on cloud nine at our wedding would be an understatement — we were truly #OnCloudShine thanks to our amazing vendors, venue and coordinators, and supportive loved ones.”
Join us in celebrating this sweet couple and swooning over their elegant and romantic wedding at Iron Manor, all beautifully documented by Houston wedding photographer Emily Figurelli Photography. Congratulations, Anna & Jack!
