Irene Tristan & Nicholas Brown

March 17, 2012 | Humble Civic Center

Irene and Nicholas share a kiss between the handmade cypress plank pews in St. John’s Church at Sam Houston Heritage Society Park­—all documented by Laurie Perez Photography.

Their rings, from Kay Jewelers, strike a chord on the St. John’s piano.

The flower girls wore Ventura’s gowns and crowns.

The Story
The couple met in their 8th grade speech class and began dating in high school. Inseparable ever since, Nicholas proposed to Irene on Selena’s Bridge over San Antonio’s River Walk the day before her birthday in November 2010.

The Details
During an intimate St. Patrick’s Day ceremony, the bride walked down the aisle of St. John’s Church in a Sottero & Midgley gown. Fashion Face did her updo and makeup. The groom wore a white-jacket tux from Al’s Formal Wear.

The Party
Roberto Carlos Events used shades of white, pink, and mint green and sparkle to deck the Humble Civic Center, where guests dined on Taco Flores and danced to LG Entertainment.
