Kelly + Hector
KELLY BIGGS + JOSÉ HECTOR JIMENEZ
Wedding Date: 9.6.15
Number of Guests: 70
Wedding Colors: Copper & Turquoise
Twelve years ago, after they'd dated barely a year, Kelly proposed to Hector by tossing him a black box with a wedding band inside, and quipping, "Wanna get hitched?" But, just in case Hector didn't take that offhand proposal quite seriously, Kelly popped the question again earlier this year (it was, to the pair's mutual delight, accepted). The couple planned to wed in New Mexico, but when the U.S. Supreme Court declared same-sex marriage legal across the land, they decided to have their celebration right here at home. As sales director for famed Houston caterer Jackson and Company, Kelly was well equipped to plan his own nuptial bash, treating quests to beloved Southern Specialties and Jackson and Company's signature cookies-and-milk station. He says, "In lieu of the traditional wedding guestbook, we asked our friends and families to write us 'love notes' on cards that we will keep to read all the years of our life together."
