by Lindsey Craig November 6
Take a peek at this beautifully organic Houston wedding! Mercedes and Benjamin’s reception at The Parador was a joyful celebration as family and friends danced the night away to the tunes of The Royal Dukes Band. Mercedes has always been a huge lover of flowers and didn’t want to trust this important detail to anyone but Houston wedding florist Holly from Flower Vibes! Holly blew all her expectations out of the water and made the day so special. Cheers to Mercedes and Benjamin!

For Mercedes and Benjamin, it was only a matter of time before their paths crossed as they lived across the street from one another during college. They officially met during a fraternity party where he asked for her phone number. From there, they spent the next few weeks getting to know one another and falling in love.
To celebrate Mercedes’ mother’s birthday, her father planned a surprise party for her – which was strange, because usually Mercedes and her sister are the family party planners. Despite this, Mercedes and Benjamin went to the restaurant only to discover her family was running late for the party. To kill time, they went for a walk to a quaint gazebo where he soon was on one knee asking her to marry him. After sayin
