Blush & Gold Wedding by Christa Elyce Photography

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

From high school acquaintances to college sweethearts, Jessica and Lukas hit it off at a fateful New Year’s Eve party, where the pair spent the whole evening talking beside a crackling campfire. Four years later, the two lovebirds graduated together from Texas A&M–and not long after, Lukas surprised Jessica by popping the question: “He decided to take me to the restaurant we went on our first big date,” recalls the bride. “I somehow was completely clueless to what was really happening.” Once they finished eating, Lukas got down on one knee and asked Jessica to be his wife… “Obviously, I said yes!” Afterwards, the couple met up with family and friends at the fabulous Hotel ZaZa to celebrate their newly-engaged status. According to Jessica, “the whole night was absolutely perfect.” Fast-forward to the pair’s summer wedding at The Parador, complete with an emotional ceremony (“we were both bawling”) and a romantic reception with an “eclectic feel” that was achieved with lots of candles, mercury glass and blush flower arrangements. Check out their GORGEOUS photos from Christa Elyce Photography below!

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON Spring 2015 | Real Wedding Feature

Shannon & Tyler ~ June 21, 2014

Oh, how we love a well-planned proposal. Take, for example, Tyler’s to Shannon: After a sunny day of boating together on Austin’s Lake Travis, the groom-to-be feigned a “late” dinner reservation and led his beloved to Windy Point Park, where, after telling Shannon how much he loved her, he spun her around to face the words, “Will You Marry Me?” spelled in rose petals in the sand. He then proceeded to place a ring that he had custom designed for his one-and-only on her shaking-with-excitement hand. The couple’s Crystal Ballroom at The Rice wedding, with its sophisticated palette of blush, navy and gold, and its romantic candlelit glow, wasn’t just elegant—it was also a whole lot of fun: “Everyone enjoyed letting loose and dancing the night away,” Shannon says. “The dance floor was never empty. It was a night of a lifetime!”

Romance? There’s an App for That!

What Makes True Love iPhone

We love a good wedding app, don’t you? And we especially love a good wedding app that makes us feel…good. Which is exactly what legendary jeweler Tiffany’s new “What Makes Love True” app does. Rather than matching happy couples to their perfect rings, like its earlier iPhone app does, the new, multimedia-heavy app—FREE, and compatible with iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad—takes users on an interactive romantic journey. After you watch a short film about proposal stories titled “Will You Marry Me?” from director Ed Burns (which left nary a dry eye among us, truth be told), you can peruse tons of classic and exclusive films and music “for the heart,” enjoy audio-slideshow “love stories,” or avail yourself of romance advice. There’s also an awesome feature that lets you tag your most romantic memories anywhere on the face of the Earth. Like, say, Houston.

So far, users have raves for this romantic, interactive app. We’d love to know what you think of What Makes Love True. Download, explore, and comment here! No i-device? No prob. What Make Love True is also online!
