Sneak Peak!! Ashley & Neal

I have one word for Ashley & Neal's November wedding:  DREAMY.  I had so much fun helping Ashley and her sweet mother, Wendy, plan all the details of this incredible event.  Scott Konitzer of Blooming Gallery transformed the Houstonian Grande Ballroom with lush white carpet and draping and a clean palette of white, ivory and green.  Here are a few sneak peak pictures captured by the oh-so-talented Morgan Lynn of Morgan Lynn Photography.  Enjoy, and get inspired!!

Weddings to Celebrate: Jennifer & Justen

I've said it many times before, but the highest compliment anyone could give me is a referral.  When you honor me with the privilege of planning not one, but two of your daughters' weddings … well, that goes beyond compliment.  I love this family.  And I loved helping plan another wedding for them.  A private residence, 30 of your nearest and dearest, a killer gown, yummy food and a great view - I don't think it gets any better than this.  Feast your eyes on the beautiful images captured by the always amazing Chip Gillespie.

Happy planning!

And the terrific cast of vendors :)

Rehearsal Dinners to Celebrate: Jackelyn & Zachary

A couple of weeks ago, I blogged Jackelyn & Zachary's awesome wedding pictures.  Now check out the rehearsal dinner the groom's parents hosted at The Swinging Door.  AKA:  The "tailgate before the big game."  I wish I could take credit for this one ... but the creative genius behind it was Zachary's mother.  She came up with everything :-)  Chip Gillespie, as always, rocked the pictures. 

Yes, those are t-shirts that doubled as chair covers.  And the guests got to take them home.

Everyone had a blast!  It was the perfect way to start off the weekend's festivities. 


Weddings to Celebrate: Kim & Chris

I had oodles of fun helping Kim with the decor and day-of details for her September wedding.  I had even more fun on the actual wedding day.  She had such a great group of family and friends, and the rain didn't stop it them from having a ball!!  Below are just a few of the awesome pictures Julie Wilhite captured :-)



Chris is a firefighter.  Can you tell??  Love that they incorporated a little of him in the getaway details.

Weddings to Celebrate: Jackelyn & Zachary

I have tried to write this blog post several times, and the proper words just don't ever seem to surface.  When I met Jackelyn, Zachary and their amazing parents, I knew we all connected.  I could not WAIT to help them start planning their wedding festivities.  However, I had no idea how much they would end up meaning to me.  I am honored to call them friends now, and I will never be able to properly express how thankful I am that God brought them into my life.  I super duper puffy heart this amazing group of people. 

Narrowing down the extraordinary pictures of their wedding day was extremely difficult.  I have said it before, and I will say it again:  If you don't know Chip Gillespie, you need to.  Stat.  He is a fabulous photographer, and a fabulous person.  Here are just a few of the shots he captured.  Enjoy!
