Natural and Unique Green Resort Wedding in Texas

Hannah & Brent

February 23

The Woodlands, Texas


Q&A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

It didn’t take long for either of us to decide that the Woodlands Resort and Conference Center would be the perfect place to get married when we walked outside on their forest deck to look at our ceremony location. The deck sits out over a lake with beautiful fountains and the scenery was so gorgeous we knew that the need for doing any decorating would be minimal. It was also a huge seller to us that the resort catered dinner, made our cakes, and much more included in our package to make our lives easier.

Which details from your wedding were your favorites?

Our three favorite details were taking pictures with the sunset after the ceremony, listening to our loved ones give toasts, and the non-stop dancing.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

Our one piece of advice for other couples would be, if possible, investing in professionals was way more worth it than we realized. We can’t get over how much of a lifesaver it was to have the help of people that knew what they were doing. Thanks to the resort and our other vendors, the wedding day itself felt effortless.

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

My favorite moment would be the exit. Brent carried me up a long flight of stairs out of the reception hall and everyone was screaming so enthusiastically waiting for us at our exit that we knew everyone had an excellent time.

Eco-Friendly Outdoor Fall Wedding in California

Lindsey & John

September 22

Petaluma, California


Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

We loved the meandering paths through the beautiful terraced gardens. It was very romantic, and we could envision all of our guests having the chance to explore the grounds.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

The bridal party Mendhi (henna party) was definitely a highlight. We sat around drinking chai and chatting. The henna was so beautiful and unique, and it was a lasting reminder of our awesome weekend of wedding fun! Another highlight was the bridal party dance that we performed to set off the dance party. I choreographed a super fun booty-shaking dance to a medley of three songs. Every time all the bridesmaids were together leading up to the wedding, we would practice, laughing the whole time. It was so much fun to perform, and the crowd loved it! We designed our wedding altar and had it built by our friends at Heritage Salvage with all salvaged materials. It was gorgeous, rustic and tied in my Chinese heritage. The design was inspired by Chinese arches, and we hung a gong in the center that we used ceremonially.

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding that you cannot stop thinking about.

It’s hard to choose just one, but it would probably be when we were eating dinner. I just kept looking around at all our friends and family enjoying each other’s company and felt so incredibly happy to be in that moment surrounded by so much love.

Eco-Friendly, Succulent-Themed Wedding in California

Kristin & Rob

June 30

Monterey, California 


Q & A with the Bride:

1. What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

I’ve always wanted an outdoor, garden-style wedding so when we walked onto the grounds of the Old Whaling Station, we knew we had found our own “secret garden.” It was the perfect
backdrop for an intimate, outdoor fete — romantic flowering gardens, winding brick pathways and a historic Adobe house that exuded vintage charm. This was the only venue we visited, and
we knew right away it was “the one.”

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. All the succulent details: glass vessels filled with air plants and succulents hung from the arch; the succulent bridal bouquets and groomsmen boutonnieres; and the wedding favors my mother-in-law planted herself.

2. The handmade chalkboard signs designed by my sister’s boyfriend.

3. My bouquet charm that paid tribute to my late father’s memory. It gave me a sense of comfort knowing that he was with me in spirit that day.

3. Give us the one moment from your wedding day you cannot stop thinking about. 

The highlight of the day was doing a “first look” where we saw each other for the first time before the wedding. It was such an emotional, private time where we had the opportunity to
really be there in the moment just the two of us — and take it all in. Plus, I’ll never forget the look on my husband’s face when he saw me in my dress. A few tears of joy were definitely shed.

Taylar and Neal’s Intimate Affair

Taylar & Neal

November 5

Langley, British Columbia, Canada

From the Photographer: “It was a sunny November day in Langley, BC for Taylar and Neal on their wedding day. It was so amazing to be able to capture their day and the true love they have for each other. “

A lot of the details were handmade, including the paper bouquets and boutonniere, which the bride made from old sheet music. Their ceremony and reception took place in a historic community hall that was built in 1909. It was truly an intimate and romantic affair!
