A Gatsby Hallowen Themed Wedding at Agave Real in Katy, Texas
Vanessa Robles (29 and a glitter artist) and Christopher Foster (29 and a petroleum landman) barely knew each other in high school, but Christopher had a crush on Vanessa. The couple started talking through Facebook, and eventually started dating. Turns out, they have a lot in common: Both are the first born in a separate sets of twins, they both have January birthdays and they once lived down the street from one another but never knew. Christopher proposed to Vanessa in front of a restaurant of strangers. The wedding ceremony was outside Agave Real in Katy, Texas. “I wanted a very romantic wedding located outside with a Spanish feel,” says the bride. The bride chose and made all the decor, which had a Halloween meets Gatsby theme. The ceremony transported guests to a magical vineyard in Spain, complete with a fireplace, an arch full of greenery and flowers and a rustic cross at the front. Vanessa and Christopher are festive people who love to entertain, and since their wedding date fell the day before Halloween, they turned their reception into an elegant Halloween party. A gold leaf skeleton greeted guests on their way in and the centerpieces of manzanita trees and tall hydrangea-filled vases glowed. Vanessa created gold leaf and glitter masks for each guest to wear on the dance floor and to take home after the celebration.
