Custom crystal-encrusted Christian Louboutins.

The couple worked with Belle of the Ball wedding coordination.

The Richard Brown Orchestra kept the party going.

A white vintage Rolls Royce whisked them away.

River Oaks Country Club catered the affair.

The couple
They met at her sister’s family barbecue and eventually, friendship grew into love for Joanna and Brad. Fitting then that their first date and, a few years later the date of his proposal, both happened on Valentine’s Day.

The Details
The emerald green and gold color theme popped with all white flowers in the centerpieces.

The Party
The bride’s twin sister choreographed a surprise “flash mob” dance with the wedding party, family and friends at the reception. Later, the couple hosted a swanky afterparty at Katsuya’s Dragon Lounge until 2am, where DJ Damon Pampolina of PRP entertainment spun tunes.
