The Couple
Melissa and EJ were introduced by a college friend of one of his high-school friends. The setting was a Houston-based gathering of Baylor grads after playoffs in 2009. “EJ was smitten the first moment he saw me!” Melissa says with laughter.
The Details
The elegant affair, coordinated by Belle of the Ball, was awash in ivory, champagne and gold hues and blooming with peonies, roses, sweet peas and hydrangeas by Weddings in Bloom.
The Party
Guests noshed on delectable dishes from Backstreet Cafe and shimmied to the tunes of The Fab 5, a Beatles tribute band.
