Tawni, a project manager for REW Group, and Patrick, a Project Manager for DPR Construction, met through mutual friends during spring break in their last year of college. After dating for some time, they went out for a nice dinner. When they got home, Patrick offered to take their dog Tori for a walk, while Tawni relaxed. After a couple minutes, the dog came running back with a different collar. By the time Tawni noticed the ring attached to the new collar, Patrick was coming around the corner and getting down on one knee to ask Tawni to marry him.
They wed just outside of Houston at Agave Road. “The venue itself
is gorgeous. It feels like you are in an exotic location; however, you are just miles from Houston,” says Tawni. The “all-inclusive” venue was perfect for them as they worked on their demanding careers and left the wedding planning to Agave Road staff.
Tawni wore a stunning gown by Justin Alexander from Ventura’s Bridal Fashions; Sunkissed and Made Up did her hair and make up. Edible Designs By Jessie made the cake and Flower Power Productions took care of floral arrangements.
The couple hired a babysitter, kids were offsite but nearby, so guests could enjoy an all adult reception without added responsibilities. They honeymooned in St Lucia and stayed at Sandals-Regency La Toc.
You cannot tell your maid of honor and bridesmaids “thank you” enough throughout the entire process. This is a huge commitment for them, and they deserve a lot of appreciation for their time and effort. Have activities planned for you and your bridesmaids the morning and day of the wedding. The longer you sit and wait the more nerves set in, so stay occupied.
