An Organic, Fall-Inspired Wedding at the Gallery in Houston, Texas

Alison Schugart (25) and Pierce McGrath (25 and an engineer) envisioned an organic fall fete for their Houston, Texas, wedding. As soon as they saw the Gallery, they booked the venue on the spot. “Part of why I loved the Gallery so much was because of the surrounding massive oak trees and the ivy on the brick walls,” Alison says. “It created a very natural landscape for the wedding right in the middle of the city.” Wedding planner Lauren Carrillo from Something to Celebrate put Alison and Pierce at ease throughout the planning process and helped them pull off an organic, fall-inspired theme with hues of orange, neutrals, greens and a splash of gold. The ceremony took place on the large, outdoor patio, where guests surrounded a floral-topped fountain to witness Alison and Pierce say “I do” underneath a vibrant floral wedding arch, created by SCF Events. While guests enjoyed a cocktail hour on the second floor of the venue, the courtyard transformed into an alfresco dinner and reception setup, where Behind the Bash provided Texas treats such as Shiner Bock beer-battered asparagus and a Texas taco bar. For entertainment, Alison and Pierce didn’t have a band or a DJ. They had both! The Hit-N-Run Band and DJ Jonny Black Productions mixed up the evening with music that catered to Alison and Pierce’s guests. Sharon Nicole Photography was on hand to capture the day.
