The bride's design studio created the couple's bright, cheerful table numbers. Centerpieces of all-white blooms varied in height throughout the room, and some tables held metal "trees" of votive candles.

"I always had particular things I wanted in a wedding gown, most extraordinary being my desire to have two different skirts," explains Hayley. For the reception, she switched from her Jenny Kim Couture gown's full-length trumpet skirt to a knee-length flared style featuring a turquoise satin belt.

It wasn't until the second time Hayley and Jason met that things fell into place for them. Unlike their first introduction years before, this time "Jason actually noticed the way-older-and-cooler Hayley," says the bride.

Within a week they had their first date, and before long, Jason decided to propose to Hayley during a quiet night at his home. The two began planning a wedding in Galveston, where, the bride says, "much of our relationship had unfolded, including the proposal." Instead of the typical beach look, the couple chose to highlight the city's historic ambience with their nuptials.
