WHY WE LOVE IT For the significant details, from the bride’s heirloom ring to the burlap-wrapped banana bread favors and groomsmen-built lemonade stand. These high school sweethearts had an outdoor wedding that “celebrated their story.”

THE VENUE “We didn’t need to do much to make it beautiful,” Shelby says of Crystal Springs in Magnolia. “We were among the beautiful Texas piney woods!” With help from her mother, who walked her down the aisle, the couple’s “traditional elegance” theme came to life.

WHY WE LOVE IT Because it didn’t skimp on glamour. The striking couple—she’s a Page Parkes model and he’s president at West Houston Infiniti—planned an equally dazzling affair with Ashlee Lee of Bristol Stone Events. The groom’s cake by Sweet Delights was a white Infiniti with “just married” plates.

THE VENUE After a Catholic ceremony, the newlyweds took the party of more than 200 to The Houstonian’s Grand Ballroom—all decked in ivory, champagne and white.

THE DETAILS Guests enjoyed an LG Entertainment photo booth, dancing to the band, Password, and take-home truffles from Godiva.

WHY WE LOVE IT Because it was an all-out “elegant Texas chic” theme for the beautiful Houston native and the Michigan-born pro hockey player (for the Edmonton Oilers) who met in their very first class at Michigan State University.

THE VENUE Neutral colors, lots of candles and a custom monogram logo by Bright Star Productions set the romantic scene at bucolic Briscoe Manor, where guests dined on southern cuisine by Behind the Bash.

THE DETAILS Marble Slab Creamery set up shop in the bar area while Sha’on and the Success Band got the crowd on its feet.
