Lindsey and Jack first found out about Houston Station when they attended a friend’s wedding there, and it seemed like the perfect place to hold their January wedding. Exposed brick walls, high ceilings, and large windows provided a flexible canvas and unique backdrop for their celebration.
Lindsey’s bridesmaids wore pale pink dresses and carried bouquets that contrasted deep burgundy flowers against blush and cream.
Did you include any other traditions in your wedding? Jack’s family is Korean, and they gave me a traditional hanbok, a traditional Korean wedding gown. Jack’s mother also wore a traditional hanbok.
“Jack and I had been to Houston Station for a friend’s wedding early in our relationship. It’s beautiful, with good character, and we were happy to return for our own wedding.”
Your ceremony in three words. Traditional, classic, energetic.
What was your ceremony music? A variety of traditional hymns and meaningful songs to us sung by friends, the Running Roots, comprised by Hillary McBride and Brett Rutledge.
What were your ceremony readings? Traditional passages we chose from the Bible as well as a hand written monologue from friends of the bride. We said traditional vows.

What was the best advice you received as a bride? Don’t sweat the details, it will all come together!
What advice do you have for other couples in the midst of planning a wedding? Don’t lose sight of one another in the midst of the craziness! Go on dates, and have whole days where you don’t talk about wedding things.
“Our reception was at the same place as the ceremony, they just flipped it during cocktail hour, a feature we loved. We wanted there to be plenty of good food and for everyone to have a great time!”
How would you describe your reception? An energetic celebration!
What type of cake or dessert did you serve? The wedding cake was an almond naked cake. The groom’s cake was a Nutella banana cake in the shape of a shirt and bow tie.
