It starts with being friends
Amy, an Account manager at KHOU 11 and Zachary, a MBA grad student, met through mutual friends. They where just buddies, yet all of their friends knew they would end up dating long before Amy and Zach knew themselves.
Zach planned a trip to Las Vegas with a bunch of friends, his and hers. As they walked to dinner one night they stopped to watch the Bellagio Fountain Show; after watching the water dance to Your Song by Elton John, Zach got on one knee and proposed. Friends cheered and congratulated when she accepted.
The families gathered at Saint Arnold’s Brewery in the Investor’s Pub for the rehearsal dinner. It was a great place to mingle, play darts and get acquainted. Their ceremony was at The Parador, an indoor/outdoor venue in Houston, Texas; near downtown, great staff, delicious food and a great price.
Amy walked down the aisle in a gown that was from Bella-Deur. Their first dance after exchanging vows was to Your Song. Nadine Moon at Who Made the Cake, hit a homerun with the best wedding cake the bride ever tasted. They also had a dessert bar with giant skillet for warming brownies or pies before topping them with ice cream. They honeymooned at Palm Island Resort, a little private island in the Grenadines, population 70, where they snuck off to deserted beaches, biked and snorkeled with wild sea turtles.
Make sure you order save the dates and invites for the number of households, NOT the number of people you invited to the wedding. Also, your entire registry doesn’t have to be plates and mixers, have fun with it. We added a Margarita Machine and a 2-person arcade basketball game. They were some of the first items to go and everyone enjoys them when they come over to our house!
