Welcome back to another fabulous week here at SMP Texas! We are kicking off your week with this beautiful, English countryside inspired Houston wedding by Keely Thorne Events. We’re talking pretty, delicate florals, gorgeous linens, an even more gorgeous bride, and a picture perfect poolside venue all wrapped into one beautiful day. Nancy Aidee Photography was on hand to capture all the feminine details and lucky for us, there’s so much more in the full gallery of images!
From Keely Thorne Events…Callie’s family has a long standing history with the super private Houston club, The Bayou Club. Therefore, it was a no-brainer when it came to selecting the venue to hold her outdoor English garden themed reception. The ceremony took place in St. John Chapel where the bride was baptized years before she knew she would marry Pat in that very same spot. Callie was a calm, laid back bride which was showcased perfectly with her southern backyard feel wedding. She even opted to wear bejeweled sandals down the aisle instead of towering heels. It was very true to Callie’s style. Founding members of the club’s portraits are prestigiously hanging around the club for decades, so in a joking nod to her grandparents relationship with the club and its members, we decided to temporarily replace the portrait hanging above the fireplace mantle with Callie’s bridal portrait. It got a good laugh from the family! Guests enjoyed cocktail hour upstairs with Frank Sinatra style music playing by a DJ. After bride and groom had some alone time to eat dinner, guests were moved outside by the pool for a formal dinner and dancing. Once the cake was cut, the bride changed into her second dress to help cool off from the Texas heat. When it was time to say goodbye, Emily moved all the guests to the valet to prepare for the formal exit with Eco-fetti in hand to toss. Once the couple was alone, they had their private last dance of the night to “Try a little tenderness.” The proclaimed thank you to Emily as it was their favorite part of the entire day. Chills. Happiness.
