Tori and Miles first met at Baylor University in their law school orientation, which later led to a series of dates that never ended. On Valentine’s Day in 2020, on a trip to a law school competition, Tori was walking the bustling streets of New York City with her classmates. Her flight was scheduled for later that day back to Waco, where Miles was waiting. However, her classmates and family had another plan in mind for her. Tori mindlessly followed the group of students on the way to a brunch spot which happened to be tucked near a stunning view of the Brooklyn Bridge and Manhattan skyline, which lead to the perfect picture opportunity for the group. “Once I started going down the stairs, I saw Miles. I immediately started crying happy tears because I knew what would happen. He proposed down by the river with a gorgeous backdrop, and both of our families were there to see it,” says Tori.

March 20, 2021, was a wedding day to remember for Audrey and the Pfau family. Audrey and her parents, both wed in the same ballroom, just 30 years apart. Audrey’s beautiful mom Laila was married in Houston’s historic Warwick Hotel– what is now Hotel Zaza to Audrey’s dad, and she was thrilled to see her daughter marry the love of her life Benjamin, there as well— like mother, like daughter.

Benjamin proposed to Audrey on Thanksgiving 2019 in front of the Statue of Liberty in New York City. Recalls the bride, “It was breathtaking and he planned for my entire family to be there. It was the most incredible and memorable Thanksgiving!”

Audrey and Benjamin tied the knot amidst 100 of their dearest ones in a ceremony enveloped in love. The ceremony decor was both elegant and romantic, with lush white florals adding to the charm of their spring wedding. The celebration continued at Hotel Zaza with a spectacular reception that included a belly dance performance, a macaroni and cheese bar, and a stunning 4-tier almond cake with a decadent dulce de leche filling by Susie’s Cakes.

After much laughter, dancing and speeches, it was time for Audrey and Benjamin’s send-off. Audrey, now wearing an outfit that included pieces from her mother’s 1991 wedding gown, stepped into a classic car with Benjamin as they rode into their happily-ever-after.

Congratulations to Audrey and Benjamin, and special congratulations to the mother of the bride–Laila, as we commemorate all the Weddings in Houston mothers who make their children’s weddings so much more meaningful.
