You know the feels you get when you meet someone for the first time but it feels like you’ve known them forever? That’s the one. Just ask Houston bride Shell who immediately hit it off with Michael the minute they met. A year later Michael got down on one knee at the top of the hill at Gardner State Park and you can guess the rest. Their super chic Houston Club wedding gave us all the feels and are sure you’ll be feeling them, too. We’ll let the lovely pictures courtesy of Civic Photos do the rest of the talking. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Casey and Bill’s love story started while they were both in high school living as expats in Trinidad. They decided to part ways after being accepted to different colleges but later re-kindled their relationship during their last semester of college. A few years later, back in the U.S., Bill planned a sweet trip to Galveston with Casey for her birthday. “Bill planned to propose in Galveston, but after holding on to the ring for a two hours waiting for me to arrive at his house, he decided he couldn’t wait much longer,” Casey recounts. “We were sitting at his kitchen table where I was finishing up a work call. As soon as I hung up I jumped up and apologized for our delay and told him I was ready to go. He stood up to deliver the proposal speech he had prepared, but couldn’t get a word out. He dropped down on one knee and went straight to the question. I have never been more surprised in my life!” Casey says. The lovebirds planned their picture-perfect summer wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Houston where Casey wed Bill in a gorgeous Anne Barge gown from Ivory Bridal Atelier. The couple’s favorite moment? “We danced to Soca music with several guests who were expats in Trinidad with us. We got to relive the culture we grew up in and show our American friends and family,” says Casey. We’ll let the beautiful photos by Steve Lee do the rest of the talking for us. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!
