Planning weddings can already be a challenge, but creating a magical night entirely different from your sisters wedding almost exactly one year later for a very similar guest list is next level! For Laura and Matt it was important for us to dig deep on what they truly loved as a couple and elements that represented them. Their priorities were to give their guests an amazing experience, give them delicious food, have a gorgeous setting and create an event that was not like her sisters! Mission accepted!! Here is how it turned out!

Setting the tone with a colorful invitation suite from The Inviting Pear let guests know they were in for a treat! The color palette came together during the design of her monogram... Corals, orange, pinks and greens came together flawlessly for this July wedding!
A moment captured before the ceremony, Laura looks timeless, classic and stunning.
Her groom awaited her at the altar at the St. John Neumann Catholic Church
After the ceremony the wedding party traveled to Brazos Hall for a photo sesh that looks like it should be in a magazine. I mean really, have you ever seen a more gorgeous couple!?
You know you are loved when you have a wedding party of this size!! They all looked stunning with the bridesmaids in julep dresses and the groomsmen in classic tuxes!
Guests began to arrive at the cocktail hour on the roof top of Brazos Hall! They were greated by a fountain, gorgeous bar and a wall full of flowers! Each bud vase had a guests name on it, this was their "escort card" they took this downstairs later to find their table! The wall was built custom by Townsley Designs just for us and David Kurio Designs brought us these adorable vases! The Inviting Pear created the labels!
Can you even believe this?! A full functioning fountain on the rooftop of Brazos!! David Kurio Designs made this happen!
Downstairs the guests were greeted with the most magnificent space! Lush hanging flowers and candle bulbs... lush flowers with mirrored accents on the tables! It was stunning! The lighting was low and romantic creating the perfect ambiance!
The cakes by Simon Lee Bakery turned out fabulous! The Groom, who was from New York integrated all of his favorite teams, topped with the team he currently coaches for!

Each place setting was set with a cut out of the guests name in wood! If you look closely they are dipped in different colors to represent their meal choice!
Every bride and groom should have the luxury of a private dinner! Matt and Laura enjoyed a full meal on their dance floor before guests arrived!!
This dip though!!!!
No wedding would be complete without a late night snack! Crave Catering whipped up some goodies so the guests wouldn't go hungry!!
We wanted to send the bride and groom off in style! Drywater Band provided horns to create a Second Line from Brazos Hall to the JW, guests loved it!
With no detail left unattended to, Transportation Consultants found us an old school New York taxi to send this super fun couple off in! We love you Matt and Laura and wish you the best for years to come!!!
We want to thank all of our amazing vendors for making this day special for Laura and Matt!
