Valentine’s Day weddings and engagements are always sweet, but if you’re not careful, can become a little too kitchy and cutesy.  Not so with Teresa Lowther & Solomon Mason’s wedding which was held on February 13, 2010.  With the help of  Kristin Cogan of Keely Thorne Events, they took Valentine kitchiness and turned it into Valentine Hollywood Glamour.  They still added a touch of cuteness, we love the ‘LOVE’ letter blocks on the candy table which add great impact with hollywood style.  Read on to learn more about how this couple designed their Valentine Hollywood Glamour wedding and get inspired for your own Valentine wedding. 

 Teresa Marie Lowther and Solomon Bryan Mason IV were united in a service of Christian marriage Saturday, Feb. 13, 2010 at 6 p.m. in the sanctuary of St. Peter’s United Methodist Church in Katy under the direction of Susan Gaston, Altar Guild.  

The traditional double-ring ceremony was officiated by Rev. William H. Watson. The groom’s grandfather, Rev. Solomon B. Mason Jr., participated in the ceremony as well. Nuptial music was provided by Avalon string quartet and trumpet, featuring the groom’s father as soloist. The church was filled with beautiful blush, pink, cream and champagne roses, ranunculus, hydrangeas, peonies, tulips, snapdragons and dendrobium orchids. Floral pomanders, tall candle stands with French silk ribbon streamers and flower blooms hanging from the tops adorned the sanctuary.  

Given in marriage by her parents and escorted by her father, the bride was lovely in a strapless Kenneth Pool gown of ivory Windsor satin, exquisitely trimmed with three bands of Swarovski crystals and a gorgeous cathedral-length veil. She wore stunning pearl and diamond earrings, a special gift from her father. She carried a beautifully rounded bouquet of cream and blush pink roses, with crystals placed throughout the roses and stems wrapped in a cream criss-crossed ribbon with one-inch bands of crystals from her groom.  

Following the ceremony, Mr. and Mrs. Lowther entertained with a beautiful reception dinner at Royal Oaks Country Club. The couple arrived in an Empress Vintage Rolls. Kevin and Pam Perkins led the blessing. Family and friends enjoyed the music of John Milstead of Tupelo, Miss. and also “The Works” band of Houston. The cakes were by Gina and the “Love” Candy Bar was a sweet treat. Blush pink, cream and champagne monogram B and T shaped flowers, heart shaped flowers and the many tall centerpiece arrangements with up light details cast a romantic glow as the couple mingled with cherished family and friends, many who came long distances in extreme weather.  

On the eve of the wedding, an elegantly appointed rehearsal dinner was held at Smith and Wollensky, hosted by Mr. and Mrs. Mason. A bridal day “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” was held at Willowfork Country Club, and a “Pretty In Pink” party was held in January at Hotel ZaZa. Family friends of the bride gifted her with a stunning blush, black and white party at Maggiano’s. The groom’s family friends hosted a large reception celebration for the couple in Jackson, Miss.  

Best Wishes Bryan and Teresa, and soon to be Happy Anniversary!
