This ceremony and reception took us to Rosemary’s Garden, on the west side of Houston. We haven’t been here in a while and loved their remodeled Chapel. It was so pretty! The colors for this wedding were marine (dark navy) and white. The tables had white table cloths and the chairs had white chair covers. The centerpieces had vases with tall calla lilies.
Michelle wore a white A-line gown of soft organza over satin. It had beading on the bodice and a gathered accent to one side. It had a corset back and a pretty bustle. She had the prettiest up-do with a tiara. Her Bridesmaids wore navy cocktail-length dresses with spaghetti straps. Their flowers were gorgeous: white rose bouquets with baby’s breath, and sparkling accents scattered throughout. They were hand tied with ribbon. The two little Flower Girls were so cute in their white dresses with navy sashes. Ash and his Groomsmen wore black tuxes with dark blue/navy vests and ties. They all had white rose boutonnieres to match the Bridesmaids.
After the introduction of the Newlyweds and dinner, it was time for the First Dance. It was so obvious how much this couple loves each other. So sweet! Following that was the Father/Daughter Dance at the same time as the Mother/Son Dance. Then, we were on to the cake cutting and toast. The Bride’s cake was so elegant and pretty. It had three stacked, white tiers, with silver and white ribbon around the bottom of each. Each tier and the top were decorated with white edible flowers. Ash’s cake was chocolate and had the couples’ initials on top. The toast was funny when the Best Man asked all the ladies in the room who had keys to Ash’s house/old apartments, etc to turn them in because he was now a married man. At least twenty women came up and turned in keys. And some men. LOL
Following the Bouquet and Garter, it was party time! The guests at this wedding wanted everything from oldies to hip hop to line dances to country, to everything in between. They were a lot of fun!
Finally, the night came to a close. The Newlyweds bid farewell to their guests, ran though bubbles, and headed off to their new life as a married couple. Congratulations Ash and Michelle!
