We <3 Brooke Schawb, and we <3 Louise + Drew’s simple Southern Texas wedding. Jonathan Andrew Sage of Newton Nursey styled the couple’s all-white blooms. I spent a few minutes oohing and ahhing over Louise’s Ulla-Maija gown: half tulle, half silk, and all unique, we love that the bride updated a classic shape by mixing light, whimsical tulle with more sophisticated and structured silk. What do you think? (I’m pretty sure I can guess who y’all feel about those glitzy + glam Christian Louboutins…) Another definite fashion yes? The bridesmaids luxe navy dresses from Priscilla of Boston.
How did the two of you meet? Tell us your story. We met when we were I was in 8th grade and he was in 9th grade, but we knew we had to wait until we were both in high school until he could ask me out. For the next 13 years we were either dating, best friends or enemies….full of drama and passion just as high school should be….we both ended up back in Houston and were in similar places so we got back together for good!
Describe the proposal. We were visiting UT Law in Austin and we decided to get a room at our favorite hotel the San Jose. He surprised me with their garden suite full of flowers, his proposal and an engagement ring….and of course I said YES!!!
Three adjectives that describe the day are: magical, amazing, love fest
