The newly minted Almquists savor a romantic and intimate “last dance” amid the chandeliers at the end of their reception.

The Dunlavy’s chandelier-bedecked space and bayou views provide a recipe for instant urban-glam.

Bronze and gold accents shimmered in the glass-encased room and on the wood-clad deck, offset by bright white arrangements courtesy of Flora & Eventi. Other warm touches included gold-calligraphied table numbers, a kids zone, complete with crayons and a coloring sheet, and comfort-food bites like donut holes. With their adorable, tux-clad infant son by their side for much of the night, which took place just three weeks after Hurricane Harvey, the Almquists toasted to new beginnings.
