One year!

I'm happy to report my husband, Brian, and I just celebrated our first wedding anniversary. As a tribute, and a glimpse into my own personal style and taste, I thought I would share pictures from our wedding on October 10, 2008. I actually planned two events; an original wedding on a hilltop in Austin. Unfortunately the property was sold to private owners who closed it down and canceled our wedding 4 months before the date leaving me to scramble and find any other venue with my day open. I was blessed to find Ashton Gardens, right here in Houston. A beautiful venue which brings the outdoors in. So I tell all my brides, no worries!! Things have a way of working out, no matter how bad it seems. Please enjoy photography from the talented Shannon Drawe.

Watching all the guests arrive, feeling the anticipation rising!

My Dad walks me down the aisle, we had to munch on skittles before hand to bite back the tears!

We had a traditional ceremony. Beautiful white and mini green hydrangea clusters lined the aisle.

 Our first shot as husband and wife! I carried a medium cascade of phalaenopsis orchids. At the last second, one of my bridesmaids picked one out of my bouquet to pin in my hair! Loved it!

YAY! Mr & Mrs. Scott!

 A moment alone walking into our reception. We had no idea this shot was being taken!

Our Monogrammed Ice Martini Luge for cocktail hour featuring my favorite drink, cosmopolitan, and Brian's, dirty martini, with our favorite variety of olives; regular, garlic, & blue cheese stuffed.

Our tables were named after different places my husband and I had been to together. The front side of the table card had the location and the back side a brief description of why that place was special to us. Our stationary, by William Arthur, was continued at the table with menu cards set in concord napkins announcing the 5-course dinner service.

Three alternating centerpieces filled the room. Shown above; a tall clear vase topped with hydrangea and phalaenopsis (left) a floating tea-light tree dressed in white dendrobiums (center) and a low arrangement of hydrangea and calla lilies (right)

Our candy bar compliments of the mother of the groom. My favorite part was the ring pops in little ring boxes. Guests were wearing them all  night!

Cutting our cake! Four tiers of alternating tres leches and bridal white with strawberry filing. The cake cutter was my something borrowed, a waterford crystal-handed set from my sister and her husband.

We faked everyone out with our father/daughter dance. Started out swaying to "My Girl" then busted out the sunglasses and the moves to Billy Ocean.
