For Lori and JJ Gonzales promising each other forever was the only thing that mattered on their wedding day. The two met through mutual friends. When JJ proposed to Lori on the Hays Street Bridge, it was obvious the two were set on forever.

The Wedding

While the couple expected to wed in the beautiful outdoor ceremony area at The Club at Garden Ridge, a downpour forced them to modify their special day. Of course, that did not matter. They had each other.

Even so, having booked reliable and talented vendors guaranteed a smooth transition. Their photographer, Dawn Elizabeth Studios, captured every detail. Between the mouth-watering food provided by Riverside Catering, the drinks Bartenders4You kept flowing, and the comfy chic rentals provided by Joyous 442, their guests hardly had any time to notice the weather’s unreliability.

They accomplished their wedding goals with the help of Diamonds & Dreams event consultants, who helped the couple execute their dream wedding, even when the weather didn’t go as planned.

The evening’s dessert was an impeccable combination of groom and wedding cakes created by Cakes Couture. The groom’s cake was elegant and honest, with only the couple’s initials and wedding date surrounded by delicate stems written in frosting across the top. The three-tiered, showstopping wedding cake featured a white frosted naked top tier, a golden textured middle-tier, and an intricate white floral bottom tier.

Rain or not, the smiles on this couple’s faces tell us they were going to have the time of their life regardless. Cheers!
