This Bride originally thought she wanted a neutral palette for her spring wedding in Houston – that is, until she saw a photo of a romantic and colorful bouquet that completely changed her vision! We are so glad she entrusted F. Dellit Designs with the task of incorporating pops of color into her gray-toned wedding, because the final look captured by Courtney Leigh Photography couldn't be more perfect for this garden wedding.

From the Bride... When Andrew and I started to dream about our wedding, we didn't know the specifics, we just knew that we wanted something that reflected us well. One of our favorite things is to gather with our friends and family, preferably somewhere outside, and just hangout and share good food together. We like to host people. So for our wedding, an outdoor celebration with all of our friends and family gathered together was the true foundation of what we wanted. Throw in some of our favorite foods, great music, and string lights, and you've got our perfect party.

Once we found the River Oaks Garden Club, everything else fell into place nicely. The garden club is a gem in the middle of the city and made the perfect backdrop. It was filled with green and trees, so we didn't need many decorations, which was great because we wanted to keep our wedding simple and filled with natural beauty. Our colors were classic, natural, and again simple. We both love the color gray, and gray Bridesmaids' dresses and table cloths seemed like a nice complement to the gardens as well as to the guy's black tuxedos.

The flowers were inspired by a photo I had seen of a brightly colored bouquet of loose flowers. I fell in love with it and went from wanting neutral colored flowers to bright pinks, oranges, and yellows with ivory and greenery accents. Our florist, Fawn of F. Dellit Designs, did an amazing job of bringing that inspiration to life. We loved our flowers and loved the pop of color around the gardens – they were perfect for spring time.

With an April wedding in Houston, there was a good chance it could rain, but that Saturday we got so lucky with amazing weather. Not only did it not rain, but it was a perfectly blue skied evening with cooler temperatures and even a breeze! That is a big deal in Houston!

The most meaningful moments of that day are the many times I would look around and see all of the people we love most gathered together to celebrate with us. I loved exchanging our vows beneath the trees with them, sitting at long tables with them, and dancing to a killer band beneath string lights with them. I would look at all of this happening and then look back at Andrew and know that everything was just right. And now I'm carrying those sweet wedding day memories with me and looking at him still thinking the same thing.
