The deck on the second floor overlooks a grove oak trees and the backdrop of tall city buildings.

They were ready to go and booked a block of rooms at the Marriott Marquis Houston. It is a short walk from the venue and close enough to the airport for guests traveling from out of town. They had enough space to prepare each other with their wedding parties in the Presidential Suite, which boasts a stunning terrace that overlooks the Texas-shaped pool.

Kelly was emotional as she wrote her vows for the ceremony. For beauty preparation, Kelly called Naz at The Barber Effect to cut her hair and those of her “broomsmen”. Finishing off, she spritzed Abercrombie and Fitch Fierce, her favorite scent.

A navy tuxedo jacket with peak lapels, black tuxedo pants and black suede loafers was her choice. She also chose a bow tie. Heather says that her initials were embroidered on her coat, and the date of her wedding was engraved on her collar. Her broomsmen gave her a pair cufflinks and her mother gave her her diamond earrings for her wedding day.

Heather, the bride, did her own makeup at the wedding. She says, “I wanted a classic look but it didn’t feel too make-up.” “I wanted to highlight my features so I added eyelashes to give it a more bold look.”

I chose a low, sleek ponytail to keep it chic and a pearl accent for elegance. Her nails were polished light pink, and she wore Versace Bright Crystal. She says, “This was the fragrance my wife bought me when I first started dating.” “I have worn this scent ever since.”
