Friends turned partners Kourtney and Tim planned their big day together with a unified vision that projected their future life of marital bliss together.
Kourtney found her Angel Sanchez wedding gown at Maison de Mode in Houston, Texas. “I didn’t think I was going to like it that much, but when I tried it on it was beautiful,” she remembers.
Kourtney says her mom was her “main shopping buddy” when it came to picking out her wedding dress. “My mom really loved the dress that I ended up buying,” she says.
Kourtney went for a bold and classy statement piece to wear around her neck on her wedding day.
The bride’s sophisticated up-do was created by Albert Dominguez from Houston’s Solution for Hair salon.
Cream-colored roses created a lovely contrast with Kourtney’s white dress.
Not only did Kourtney look like a queen on her wedding day she also made sure her neck was scented with the dreamy, yet clean scent of Chanel No. 5.
Tim’s single white flower stood out against his charcoal gray suit.
Kourtney’s makeup artist, Leah Nygren of Your Beautiful Face, accentuated the bride’s natural beauty, giving her a nice summery glow for her wedding day.
A vintage Rolls Royce waited outside of St. Paul’s United Methodist Church for the bride and groom to become husband and wife.
Kourtney and Tim enjoyed working together on all aspects of their wedding. Tim designed all of the invitations and programs for the big day.
As Kourtney waited to walk down the aisle, she thought about her personal vows, which included two verses from the Bible’s book of Ruth — “Where you go I will go, and where you stay I will stay. Your people will be my people and your God my God…”
Two flower girls waited with smiles on their faces to set the mood for the wedding day.
Kourtney’s mother and step father escorted her down the aisle, walking in front of her. “I couldn’t see Tim til the end,” she says. “He had a big smile on his face and he smiles with his eyes. It was good seeing him.”
“It was such an awesome, great day,” Tim gushes. “I wish I could bottle that feeling up and sell it.”
“I realize what makes me so comfortable with Tim is the way he pretty much always makes me laugh,” Kourtney says. “His face lights up when anything good happens. It just puts you at ease.”
“She’s crazy smart, she’s a nice person, she’s considerate,” Tim lists some reasons why he’s in love with Kourtney.
The couple’s table numbers were a big hit. They went over their vision with their florist Melanie Tipton of Last Petal and she created the contemporary centerpieces.
“We had very simple florals, but Melanie totally got our vision,” Kourtney says.
“There’s just something about the way we relate to each other,” Tim says. “I struggle to articulate it or quantify it, but when it’s just when I’m around her I just feel better.”
Romantic candles lined the Artista restaurant in Houston, where the wedding reception was held.
“I think I fell in love during the friendship,” Kourtney reveals. “It was really getting to know him that made me realize that I didn’t really want to be without him.”
“Without the pressure of relationships and just being in the friendship allowed things to kind of unfold pretty naturally,” the new wife explains.
Planning the wedding was such a great experience for Tim and Kourtney that they hope to work together on other creative projects. “I want to get to the point where we’re working side by side and spend every day together,” Tim says.
Instead of having a wedding cake, the reception venue provided guests with cupcakes and cake truffles.
When they first started dating Tim — who is originally from Louisiana — told Kourtney in passing that he wanted a second line dance at his wedding. She never forgot.
“I walked outside and I get handed an umbrella and the trombone started going and I looked at my uncle and he had his legs up stepping. It was the greatest moment of the day. I was like, ‘Oh man. She cares!’”
“I remember I so wanted to give him that as a gift just to see his face light up,” Kourtney says.
