After a slew of online dating disappointments, Imly decided to give it one more shot and emailed Jesse on Match.com. And boy, is she glad she did. Jesse declared his love for Imly on one knee at the top of a mountain during a snowboarding trip in Keystone, Colo., and the rest was history. The pair wanted their downtown Houston rooftop wedding at The Sam Houston Hotel to be fun and as relaxing as possible for their guests–but still super stylish and chic. Their palette of ivory, fuchsia, blush pink and navy carried through the cake, decor, flowers and wedding party attire–even the bride’s style: Imly went from a drop-waist ivory dress for the ceremony, to a blush-pink sweetheart-neck gown for the reception, to a flirty, short lace dress for the after-party. We could go on and on about Imly and Jesse’s wedding, but we want YOU to see it for yourself. Check out the pics for all the sweet deets. Congrats and well wishes to the newlyweds!

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE
Jessica and Andrew ~ November 15, 2013
“With a venue like this, it’s easy to do little and have a huge impact,” says bride Jessica of downtown Houston’s chic Sam Houston Hotel. “I wanted the wedding ceremony and reception to be soft, romantic and neutral, and my color palette”—a contemporary combo of gray, blush, white and silver—“reflects that.” You’d never know from viewing Jessica and Andrew’s wedding photos that the couple planned their wedding—with help of coordinator Sobi Qazi of Lion & Lamb Event Services—in just three weeks. But that wasn’t their biggest challenge. “The biggest challenge was having our guest count jump up by 70+ guests the week of the wedding,” Jessica says. “But it was an easy fix because I had the best vendors, who were able to work together and make it work.”
