“I’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to propose, but then realized that just being with you is perfect enough, will you marry me?” are the exact words that Julio said to sweep Houston bride Alejandra off her feet. The pair celebrated with 280 of their nearest and dearest at The Petroleum Club of Houston. The breathtaking views of the city from the 43rd floor provided the perfect backdrop to complement their sophisticated color palette of blush, ivory and gold. We fell in love with the gorrrgeous rose, hydrangea, phalo and orchid flower arrangements that filled the room with elegance. Sounds amazing, right? Just wait until you see the pics! Congrats and best wishes, Alejandra & Julio!

Houston bride Meagan instantly fell in love with the grand Italian-villa-inspired architecture of The Bell Tower on 34th Street, which perfectly complemented her soft, romantic color palette of blush, ivory and gold. “I loved the beautiful carved-wood chapel doors, and had a vision of a grand entrance,” she says. “My fondest moment was when the bell tower rang, the doors opened and we locked eyes as I walked down the aisle.” Meagan wore a gorrrgeous drop-waist, lace bridal gown from Brickhouse Bridal with glittery gold Jimmy Choo pumps, of course. Swooning already? Yeah, we thought so. Just wait ’til you see the pics of the bouquet, centerpieces and OMG cake from Who Made The Cake! Congrats and best wishes, Meagan and JT!

“I had a patient in the ER that needed massive transfusion of blood products. Andrew was working in the blood bank that night. We exchanged simple conversation but I couldn’t stop thinking about him. I messaged him on Facebook a few weeks later, basically asking for a date. He text messaged me the next morning and we’ve been together ever since,” says Houston bride Lenee. If you think their made-for-TV meet-cute is sweet (and verrry dramatic), just wait ’til you see the beautiful photos from their wedding at The Crystal Ballroom at the Rice taken by Aisha Khan from Ama Photography & Cinema! Congrats Lenee & Andrew on tying the knot!
