Take a scroll through Michelle and David’s classic garden wedding with bright pink pops! We are entirely smitten with Michelle and David and their August wedding, and we know you will be too. The adorable couple met at Rice University in their Economics class. However, the two parted ways after college but found each other again in 2018 when David’s mom set the two up to meet for brunch. Moms always know best because Michelle and David became inseparable and found loving partners in one another from that moment forward. Finally, while on a trip to Cancun, David proposed on Christmas morning. One of the couple’s running jokes is that David had once gifted Michelle Pokemon cards for Christmas. Therefore for his proposal, David gave Michelle another set of Pokemon cards, but this time had them customized to show special memories they shared. We love this!

 

Michelle and David were eager to celebrate their love due to postponing their original wedding celebration. The couple started their day with a walk around the Rice University campus, where the couple met. After, Michelle went to get ready with her bridal party before the celebration began. Pink Palette Artists got Michelle all glammed before reuniting with her hubby. The couple said one of their favorite moments of the day happened when they saw their venue completely transformed with florals from Inheritance Floral Designs & Events. The dazzling pink arrangements and navy table clothes complimented each other perfectly. Finally, the couple hit the dance for their first dance. Michelle and David took dance lessons before their big day. So they were ready to show off their choreographed moves to an upbeat version of “Dancing in the Moonlight.” How fun! Congrats to the newlyweds, and keep scrolling to see more!

 

 

One Thing Michelle and David Learned While Planning:

“Because David and I had to postpone our wedding celebration, we learned that we just wanted to relax and have fun. We wanted to spend quality time with our wedding party and guests on our special day. Making sure we had time to have conversations and catch up with family and friends was important. Especially since we hadn’t seen so many family members due to the pandemic.”
