Perfect Protocol

Few first dates leave one both flustered and giddy, but that’s exactly what happened when Becky met Josh in January 2016.  

Fresh-off-the-aisle newlyweds Becky (holding her naval sword) and Josh before cutting the beautifully crafted cake.

The five-tiered cake created by Who Made the Cake, which Becky cut with her naval sword at the reception.

 

Each dinner table was meticulously detailed with layers of tabletop candles and blooms of flowers and tree branches created by Floral Events.

 

 

A program for the affair

Elements of gold were added into the groom’s tuxedo and boutonniere to echo the decor of the reception.

Textured invitations by Minted continued the elegant theme. 

After connecting on match.‌com, Becky Phelps invited Josh Adams to an art and fashion event, where they spent the evening poking fun at each other’s outlandish artistic interpretations. Josh told an artist that Becky thought his “Rise of Feminism” art piece looked like the Hiroshima atomic bomb. That’s when she knew, amid the cloud of embarrassment and laughter, that he was a keeper.

What followed was an easy season of dating: “best days ever” doing nothing together, Baja shrimp taco meals, trips to Washington, D.C., to meet Becky’s family and Hotel Galvez birthday escapades. “[I learned] that when it’s right, it really is easy,” Becky says. So on only their fourth “monthiversary,” Josh got down on bended knee on a trail in Buffalo Bayou Park, Becky’s favorite spot in all of Houston, and proposed.

With the help of Mary Rios Events, Becky envisioned a city-chic wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel Houston. There was no shortage of peppy details, such as gold-embossed menus handcrafted by Becky with the Texas A&M “Aggie” fight song for Josh, laser-cut nameplates on tables and a surprise confetti drop at the end of the wedding. Becky, a former naval officer, even surprised Josh by cutting their wedding cake with her naval sword, a long-standing tradition. On the tables, centerpieces of manzanita trees and garden white roses set a romantic tone. The result was everything Becky had dreamed of.
