Sharon & Ivan in Houston, TX

The Bride Sharon Chin, 25, a wedding photographer
The Groom Ivan Ku, 26, a civil engineer at Bechtel
The Date October 16

College sweethearts Sharon and Ivan wanted an outdoor garden ceremony with an elegant indoor reception, but in a locale a bit more unusual than a typical ballroom. The Parador was ideal for both, with its plush grounds and Mediterranean-style architecture. Using a local planner she’d worked with on weddings past, Sharon played up the historic landmark with pink and gray details for a feminine but modern aesthetic.
