Gray, White, Black & Green Wedding by MD Turner Photography

Friday, April 21st, 2017

Shelly couldn’t help but fall for Evan, her oh-so-charming office crush, after working many long weeks and late nights together. Shortly after the lovebirds started dating, their lives took an unexpected turn. Warning: grab your tissues now. “Evan was diagnosed with cancer after six months of us dating… needless to say we’ve been through many ups and downs together, and it’s only strengthened our commitment together,” Shelly says. “I’m so happy to share that Evan is now cancer-free!”

On the night of their four-year dating anniversary, Evan requested that Shelly meet him for a cocktail at the Hilton Americas – Houston before dinner. “When I arrived at the bar, Evan was nowhere to be found, but the bartender gave me the sweetest note from him, asking me to meet him in the elevator lobby of the 11th floor (where we had first spent all night talking at a work conference in 2010). I was escorted to the elevator and as soon as I stepped out, Evan was on one knee waiting for me,” she recounts. After lots of hugs, photos and a few glasses of bubbly, he took her to a surprise dinner where their friends and family were waiting to celebrate the good news!

“I wanted a timeless look for the wedding— black tuxedos, long charcoal gray bridesmaid dresses and lots of white and green decor,” adds Shelly.

“Our wedding was the best day of my life. We danced all night long, and we didn’t want it any other way,” the bride recounts. We wouldn’t want it any other way either! Congrats Shelly and Evan, we wish you a lifetime of good health, happiness and LOVE. Thanks MD Turner Photography for the beautiful photos!

White, Gray & Silver Wedding at The Bell Tower on 34th

Thursday, April 13th, 2017

Lauren and Steve truly believe that fate brought them together. “I met Steve on his first night in Houston after graduation. He was having a housewarming party, and I was invited through his roommates. As soon as I arrived, I noticed Steve and how attractive he was! He was the DJ for the night, and I told him how much I loved his music and how I wanted to add him on Facebook so I could add his Spotify music account,” says Lauren…admitting that she really just needed an excuse to continue talking to him.

After exchanging messages, Steve asked Lauren out on a date. “I was having a procedure the next day, but I was so excited that he asked me out, I couldn’t say no,” Lauren adds. “He took me out to dinner but I couldn’t eat, so he didn’t eat either. [Awww] We just had water and tea, and talked for hours! I knew right then that he was the kind of guy I wanted to end up with,” she says.

For his marriage proposal, Steve made the occasion seem like a normal date night to Lauren. “He told me that he was taking me out for a nice dinner, which was not uncommon,” she recounts. The plan was to dine at the top of the highest building in downtown Houston. “I got all dressed up in my new dress that Steve bought for me a few days before. When we arrived at the top of the JP Morgan Chase Tower, it was then I noticed the candles that were surrounding us. Steve said so many sweet things, most of which I will never remember because I was so excited, and dropped to one knee,” she says. But that wasn’t the end of the surprise—Steve had arranged for Lauren’s family and friends to be at the actual dinner location to celebrate!

“Our wedding day was everything I had dreamed of since I was a child. I got to marry the love of my life with my best friends by my side,” Lauren says. Favorite moment? “When all of my stress and craziness vanished as the doors of The Bell Tower on 34th chapel opened and I got to see my husband for the first time, wiping tears from his eyes,” she adds.

Lush White, Ivory & Gray Houston Wedding

Wednesday, April 5th, 2017

After spending their first date in a yoga class, Keri and Michael decided to take their next outing to get to know each other better while strolling through Houston’s Buffalo Bayou Park. A date well spent, and a gorgeous Houston sunset later, the fitness-and-outdoors lovers decided to meet again… the very next day. Little did they know that Houston’s natural beauty would play into every major milestone they celebrated next.

Michael popped the question to Keri during an “all-day date” that began near a garden complete with an arbor of blooming red roses, where Keri was shocked to find Michael down on one knee!  “We spent the rest of the day talking about how we arrived to this exciting day,” Keri says. “And the 12-hour ‘date’ concluded with a surprise dinner Michael had arranged for both of our families at one of his favorite restaurants
!”

To nobody’s surprise, the couple’s love of the outdoors played right into their nuptials and reception, as well, with lush phalaenopsis orchids, calla lilies and white tulips by Plants N’ Petals accenting rustic barn tables. “We chose orchids as our main flower for their meaning, and also for their simple elegance,” Keri says.

Keri donned a classic silk dress from  Joan Pillow Bridal Salon on the big day, complete with a chic oversized bow in back. The couple sealed the deal with stunning rings from Zadok Jewelers and invited their intimate group of 120 guests to celebrate with invitations and stationery from Bering’s. They began their new life together as a married couple with registry items from Kuhl-Linscomb.

White & Green Wedding by Philip Thomas Photography

Tuesday, March 21st, 2017

Anna, who grew up in lush, tree-filled Marietta, Ga., knew she wanted the feel of the outdoors at her Texas wedding to Clark, even if it had to take place indoors. For the couple’s July wedding, a “woodlands” theme presided, with moss and foliage entwined against billowing drapery, and Anna in a flowing dress from Joan Pillow Bridal Salon for the ceremony.

The couple worked with Houston photographer Philip Thomas of Philip Thomas Photography to document their special day. Thomas captured countless of what he calls “in-between moments” of Anna, Clark and their loved ones like these sweet hugs and kisses!

Taking note of Anna’s “woodlands” inspiration, we love how Thomas captured plenty of natural light in his photos, and even braved the hot, hot Texas heat to take this oh-so-romantic tree-lined shot. At the reception, Anna and Clark “traded out white for pops of primary colors,” Anna says, which Thomas also captured beautifully, as pictured in the shot below.

“We really wanted our wedding to be fun and full of energy, and I feel like between the band, photo booth and the aviator sunglasses that everyone loved, we could just focus on having a blast and not worry about any details,” Anna recounts. It looks like everyone (especially Clark!) had the time of their lives. Congrats to the both of you, Anna and Clark, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!
