Whitney Gore & Justin Bailey

Justin and Whitney had a modern affair: they met online. After clicking on each other’s profile, they decided to meet in person. And click they did – they knew that they were immediately perfect for each other after that first date. For their engagement, Justin called up Whitney’s friends and family and got down on one knee at her workplace on his birthday. He said her hand in marriage was the the best brithday gift he could ever receive.

On June 28, 2014 the couple said their “I dos” in front of their loved ones at Texas Discovery Gardens. Whitney, a wedding planner and owner of Chic Fleur Wedding and Events, had always envisioned her wedding day decor as “classy and romantic.” To achieve the look, she started with a pastel color palette to compliment the greenery at the gardens. She and Justin lovingly handmade a few of the wedding day’s elements: hand-carved numbers from vintage books, “watch our love grow” wild flower seeds as favors, and little pouches of dried lavender to toss at the send off.
