Krstyn and Nabeel’s beautiful, intimate wedding took place at Hoffan Haus, a Fredericksburg, Texas bed & breakfast in the very same courtyard where they became engaged! Taylor Bible Weddings planned and designed the event which showcased a stunning palette of berry and blue. The florals are showstopping (and also created by the planner) in a vibrant array of pinks and deep reds that pop against the deep french blue of Nabeel’s three-piece tuxedo. You can see all the beautiful details and joy of their day in these lovely film images by Lucille Photo.
What made the wedding special and unique?
We were married at our favorite bed & breakfast in Fredericksburg, Tx – The Hoffman Haus in the very courtyard of our proposal!
Tell us about the gown and where/how you found it!
I found my dress designed by Amy Kuschel at Unbridaled in the Sawyer Silos in Houston Heights. I knew I wanted something less traditional and heard great things about the shop which has stores in Austin in Houston. It was the third dress I tried on and instantly fell in love with the simple design and beautiful lace overlay.
What were some touches added to make the wedding personal?
My husband is from London and I grew up in Texas. Introducing him to some of the great “Texas staples” has been one of my favorite things since we met, even though he doesn’t always agree on their greatness (how can you not LOOOOVE Tex-Mex??). But Whataburger is something he instantly understood – so having a Whataburger popup as our midnight snack along with sweet swag for everyone was certainly a personal touch that everyone loved!
What was the most memorable part of the day?
We had a really memorable day and our photographer Lucy Strove captured all of the laughter and joy in a perfect way. My favorites would be the first look because it was just us before things kicked into high gear and our dual rap session during the reception that really got the crowd going! A HUGE thanks to my planner Taylor Bible for convincing my DJ (Aaron Ward) to play the uncensored version of Cardi B’s “Bodak Yellow”…I’m not sure that happens at a lot of weddings!
Tell us how you met and became engaged.
We met during Labor Day weekend 2016 after a pool party in Midtown (Houston). My girlfriends and I met his friends there and they invited us to another bar which we accepted. Somehow he was not a part of the initial meetings but as I was talking (loudly) to my girlfriends on the sidewalk and he came across the street to ask me my name (in his very lovely English accent) and we hit it off immediately. After almost 2 years of dating he took me on a trip to Fredericksburg and found the most beautiful bed & breakfast and booked a wine tour (score!). Right before the wine tour Saturday morning he walked me under the trees into the courtyard of the Hoffman Haus and asked me to marry him! I said YES and the rest is history!
