She loves his leather jacket, and that he’s always up for an adventure. He loves her bubbly personality, and having breakfast with her on Saturdays at Barnaby’s. And they both love a good party. It was in this spirit that Leslie and Danny gathered 185 friends and family members at Houston venue The Astorian to celebrate their union, a culmination of the love story that began when the two first met working as engineers in 2012. With the expert planning and design assistance of acclaimed Houston wedding firm Events De Luxe, the couple created a winter wedding that beautifully reflected their likes, and their love: “Our wedding was absolutely perfect for us,” the bride says.  Click here to read the rest of this post »

“We didn’t meet by locking eyes across a crowded bar, or bump into each other at a crowded coffee shop like you see in the movies, or even get introduced by mutual friends,” says Houston bride Katherine. “Our love story started with a simple swish of the finger… yes, we met on Tinder in Austin, Texas!”

Winter Ashton Gardens Wedding

Long, long before their beautiful Ashton Gardens wedding, there was the first moment Sarah and Trevor met, when they were only 12 years old. “My family had moved to Houston and began attending the same church as Trevor’s family,” Sarah explains. “Trevor and I were each other’s first kiss in high school, and we deeply cared for one another from an early age.” When it came time for college, the two went their separate ways, as high-school sweethearts often do. It would be 10 years before they saw each other again, this time at a different church in Houston, where they both resided once again. Because her mother had, sadly, passed away four years prior to her wedding, Sarah’s father stepped up to take over “so many roles to help me with the wedding,” she recounts, “including sweetly buttoning me into my gown, since my mom was not there.” Not just that, the bride says, but, “He also gifted me with an oil painting of my mother, which reserved the spot in the front pew where she would have sat. I loved getting to save that space for her.” And we love getting to share Sarah and Trevor’s poignant wedding story and Houston winter wedding with y’all. Congratulations to the happy couple!
