Breanna and Corey’s love story started out with the perfect foundation…they were friends, ever since they had worked together at a local wine bar a few years back. However, when their careers went different ways, well…that’s when their love story really began. Breanna remembers the exact night Corey proposed. It was June 3, 2014. They decided they wanted to upgrade from apartment living to buying their first house in Houston. They had just spent a full day, with her dad’s assistance (shout out to dads for always helping out), moving their furniture to the new house. Corey was running a bar at the time and had to go to work that night, but absolutely insisted that Breanna wait up for him at the new house. Breanna recalls Corey repeating over and over, “DO NOT GO TO SLEEP, BABE!” However, she fell asleep anyway…but hey we’ve all done it : ) Corey got home at 3:00 am and immediately woke Breanna up—brave move waking up a sleeping beauty—but he said he had a surprise to celebrate their new place. He had glasses of Champagne ready to toast to their new home and their future, and with that, Corey asked Breanna to be his wife and stay in this home, and in his future, forever. (Okay, that’s a pretty darn sweet moment to wake up for!) Breanna says she “sure was awake after all of that!” The two had a simply gorgeous wedding filled with special DIY touches…Breanna’s mother did ALL of the flowers and decor! Breanna and her bridesmaids spent the day getting ready at the JW Marriott Houston Downtown before the nuptials began at a beautiful garden venue. She wore a stunning Enzoani lace fit and flare gown from Brickhouse Bridal down the aisle, which fit her perfectly. Binford Creative Photography did an impeccable job documenting Breanna and Corey’s day. We can’t stop gushing over these photos. Breanna and Corey, we wish you a lifetime of happiness!

Daniel knew the moment he met Stephanie that there was something special about her; within a matter of months, the pair had become great friends. But when Stephanie moved to Mexico to study abroad, she assumed that she had “fallen off his radar,” and they lost touch. A few years later, when Stephanie was living in Houston as a teacher, the couple reconnected in a way that took Stephanie by surprise: “He would call and we would talk for hours,” recounts the bride. “So much time had passed that I was convinced we were going to pick up where we left off as friends, but I was wrong.” Turns out, Daniel had been in love with Stephanie all along, and was just waiting for the perfect opportunity to re-enter her life. The lovebirds tied the knot surrounded by 150 of their nearest and dearest in a beautiful garden ceremony at Hotel Galvez, followed by a romantic champagne brunch on the terrace. The day was made even more special by the presence of the bride’s father, a disabled Vietnam veteran, who was released from the hospital only days before the wedding: “My favorite moment was my dad walking me down the aisle as my mom held him up on his other side,” says Stephanie. “It was a true fairy tale—I married the man of my dreams and my dad was able to give me away.” We’re so happy for you, Daniel and Stephanie!
Sometimes reconnecting with your high school boyfriend is a good thing—just ask Houston bride Codi. After graduating college and moving back home, Codi and Austin fell in love all over again and decided this time it was for forever. Codi brought a new meaning to true Houston glam when she wed Austin in a feather-accented Stephen Yearick gown from Brickhouse Bridal. Her vision of a glamorous, fairytale wedding came to life at Chateau Cocomar. “Instead of using the typical blush and white color palette, I added hot pink and black for a more unique look,” she says. Black sequin linens and mercury glass candle holders were just a couple of details that added a romantic yet glamorous look to the decor. We couldn’t help but swoon, and know you will, too, after seeing the lovely photos. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

Michael planned the sweetest proposal for his high school sweetheart Sarah. “After dinner, Michael told me to put a blindfold on. He took me to several places around Kingwood where we had special memories: our first kiss, where he first told me he loved me, and our old high school meet-up spot. At each stop, Michael gave me a rose and proceeded to tell me a reason why he loved me at every spot. The final stop was at the golf course where Michael and I had our first date. When I took off the blindfold, he was down on one knee with rose petals scattered around him and a bottle of champagne. After I said “yes”, Michael had gathered both of our families to celebrate,” says bride Sarah. A sweet proposal story like this deserves an even sweeter wedding. Just take a look at the fabulous pictures by Ever & Anon Photography. We can guarantee you’ll be swooning. Best wishes and congrats to the newlyweds!
