Wedding Inspiration

Clare Young & Cole Martin

We are in love with Clare and Cole’s black and white contemporary glam wedding at The Milestone Iron Manor. Clare and Cole met back in 7th grade when Cole transferred to Clare’s middle school. Over the course of three years, the two developed a strong friendship and even stronger feelings for one another. Clare and Cole spent many days hanging out at Whataburger, dates in Cole’s truck, movie nights, and many school dances throughout high school. Graduation from high school led both off to Sam Houston State University for the next phase of our story. After about nine years together, Cole proposed while on a trip to Miami. The couple strolled along the white sandy beach of Miami when suddenly they approached a romantic set up with roses, champagne, and a sign that read, “Will you marry me?”. Overwhelmed with excitement, Clare said “YES,” and the two began planning their dream wedding at The Milestone Iron Manor.

 

Clare and Cole kept their wedding modern and chic with a black and white color palette. Their big day entailed great food, beautiful decor, friends, family, and love for the adorable couple. Clare described their ceremony as “truly magical.” Clare went on to say, “Cole and I both felt a strong sense of peace as we stood together surrounded by the people who love us the most.” We can understand why Clare and Cole’s ceremony felt like pure magic, surrounded by cathedral-like windows letting an abundance of natural light into the space and a beautiful white bloom floral display. After the ceremony, Emily Figurelli Photography captured wedding portraits of the adorable couple. Clare, who took our breath away with a beautiful look from Etoilly Artistry, and her beau showed us how much of a power couple they are in each shot. Including climbing inside their bright red getaway convertible with sunglasses and a cigar for some iconic photos. Clare and Cole danced the night away with guests. The couple said, “I don’t think we stopped smiling! We had the absolute best time celebrating with our favorite people!” Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Martin!

 

 

Clare and Cole’s Favorite Wedding Memory:

“Cole and I shared a private last dance inside while our guests were outside preparing for the exit! This was my favorite moment of the night because Cole and I had a chance to soak in the moment. It also gave us a very sweet and sentimental way to end the night.”
