THIS BRIDE + THIS HOUSTON WEDDING, Y’ALL.

Stunning, fresh florals. A perfect, November day. Deep wines + crisp blues.

We asked Whitney a few questions about her and Jose’s love story + Best Day Ever — all of the answers below are in her own words!

WHITNEY, HOW DID YOU + JOSE MEET?

First period of my freshman year of high school. He sat behind me alphabetically. He was late to class the first day and as soon as he walked through the door, I fell in love!

I knew at that moment I wanted to be more than the girl who sat in front of him.

HOW DID JOSE PROPOSE?

He had a friend take me to Buffalo Bayou for a food truck meeting (he knows I LOVE food trucks!). She took me around the park and he had a sign that said my name at the stairway.

As soon as I saw it, I started crying because I knew it was finally happening!

I walked down the stairs and he had three other people holding signs that each said: “Will You Marry Me?” I walked down ANOTHER set of stairs and met him at a pond where he was standing with flowers.

I loved every little detail! It was so romantic. And my ring was PERFECT.

WHITNEY + JOSE SPENT ABOUT A YEAR PLANNING THEIR DREAMY HOUSTON WEDDING AND GOT TO SAY “I DO” ON NOVEMBER 18, 2017 AT THE SPRINGS in Katy.

OUT OF ALL OF THE WEDDING VENUES IN HOUSTON, WHY DID YOU CHOOSE THE SPRINGS?

I knew right away as soon as I walked through the door that this was THE venue! The “at home” feeling, the bridal suite, and the outdoor area were just perfect.

We booked it right away — I didn’t even want to look any further because I knew I just didn’t have to.

WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE MEMORIES FROM YOUR WEDDING DAY?

Every single thing about my day was perfect. I had an amazing experience. But my absolute favorite memory would be seeing his face full of tears when I met him down the aisle. I could relive that moment over and over again!

WHAT IS THE BEST ADVICE YOU WOULD GIVE TO COUPLES WHO ARE STILL IN THE PLANNING PROCESS?

Don’t let the little things stress you out. Take breaks often. Don’t overreact. JUST BREATHE. It’ll all come together in the end, I promise.

WHAT WOULD YOU TELL OTHERS ABOUT TOURING VENUES + GETTING STARTED WITH WEDDING PLANNING?

When you find THE vendor, you will know it’s the right one. I had amazing experiences with all of mine and I knew right away I had an amazing team. AND USE SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS. Seriously, the best decision I made.
