WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Anthony and Richard ~ September 14, 2013

When stylist Anthony was referred to realtor Richard—the latter provided a vacant property for a video shoot when the original site backed out at the last minute—he couldn’t have known that his rescuer would also end up being his lifelong mate. But the shoot led to a date, where “we seriously hit it off and agreed to meet again. And again. And again. And finally, he just never left,” Richard recounts. “Ah, true love!” Two years into their courtship, Richard proposed in Manhattan at Rockefeller Plaza’s famed Christmas-tree-lighting ceremony. The following autumn, the pair had a commitment ceremony—and partied the night away—at the Sam Houston Hotel, where, Richard says, the evening’s most joyful highlight was “bringing 165 family members and friends together in one place to help us celebrate our special day.”

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Ashlyn and Zach ~ March 16, 2013

“When we were planning the wedding we wanted it to be something that let our personalities shine through,” says Houston bride Ashlyn. “We chose a design that was simple but still unique, and we decided to keep all of our events at Hotel Derek. This made it easy for guests, and allowed the evening to flow smoothly.” Ashlyn and groom Zach, who met as undergrads at UT Austin, treated their 130 guests to dinner and lively dancing, in a room done up for the occasion in chic shades of lime green, black and white. “We were so thankful to spend such an important day in our lives with our friends and family,” Ashlyn says. “Some of our favorite moments were the first dance, bouquet and garter toss, and dancing the night away!”

Blue, Yellow and Gray Wedding at the Tremont House by Adam Nyholt Photographer

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Cameron & Bryar ~ October 5, 2013

There’s something to be said for spontaneity, notes bride Cameron, whose then-boyfriend Bryar “proposed completely out of the blue at my apartment on a lazy Sunday afternoon.”  While the proposal may have been less than formal, the couple’s Galveston wedding was a grand celebration at the historic Tremont House hotel, where 300 guests enjoyed gourmet Texas specialties—seafood gumbo, shrimp and grits, beef brisket—along with DIY Champagne cocktails, glamorous boas, and dancing on a magnificent monogrammed white dance floor. The bride’s favorite memory? “Dancing a father-daughter dance to ‘My Girl.’”

Plum and Lavender Wedding at La Colombe d’Or by Joshua Tyi Photography

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON FALL 2014 | REAL WEDDING FEATURE

Lana and Bojan ~ February 1, 2014

Sometimes it takes a wedding to inspire a wedding. Take the case of Houston lovebirds Lana and Bojan, who traveled to New Mexico for a friend’s nuptials. “The day before the wedding, Bojan surprised me by renting a car and taking me sightseeing through gorgeous forests and snow-covered slopes,” Lana recounts. On the way back to their hotel, Bojan stopped, got out of the car, and told Lana to close her eyes. “When I opened them, he was standing next to a snowman. He asked me to look inside the snowman, and when I did, I found the engagement ring. Truly one of the happiest days of my life,” the bride says. Another happy day? The day of the couple’s magnificent La Colombe d’Or wedding, of course.

Romantic Hotel ZaZa Spring Wedding by Akil Bennett Photography

Wednesday, January 14th, 2015

“We met at a charity camp for children with cancer called Candlelighter’s, back in El Paso,” recounts recent bride Paige. “Patrick was the counselor for the youngest boys and I was the counselor for the youngest girls. Patrick had a ‘tough guy’ exterior, but seeing him with those children, gentle and kind, melted my heart and I was immediately in love. By the end of the camp we were constantly talking and flirting, sharing music and books; it was a beautiful beginning to a beautiful relationship.” We’ll second that, Paige. And third it. And just melt over it right along with you, while we sigh over Akil Bennett’s gorgeous photos of your Hotel ZaZa spring wedding. Thank you so much for donating your time and love to children in need, and for sharing your beautiful day with our beautiful Houston brides. Congratulations!

Blush, Ivory & Gold Wedding at The Petroleum Club of Houston

Monday, December 22nd, 2014

“I’ve been waiting for the perfect moment to propose, but then realized that just being with you is perfect enough, will you marry me?” are the exact words that Julio said to sweep Houston bride Alejandra off her feet. The pair celebrated with 280 of their nearest and dearest at The Petroleum Club of Houston. The breathtaking views of the city from the 43rd floor provided the perfect backdrop to complement their sophisticated color palette of blush, ivory and gold. We fell in love with the gorrrgeous rose, hydrangea, phalo and orchid flower arrangements that filled the room with elegance. Sounds amazing, right? Just wait until you see the pics! Congrats and best wishes, Alejandra & Julio!

Blush, Mint & Cream Vintage Wedding by Kreative Angle Photography

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

Vintage candleabras, lanterns, lace overlays, vintage vases, and a soft color palette of blush, mint, cream and lush greens are what defined Anna and George’s dreamy, vintage wedding. If you think the décor sounds to die for, wait ‘til you hear about the delish menu! The guests indulged in pistachio-crusted Redfish and New York strip au jus with horseradish cream (mmm) from Café Natalie. We hope you enjoy the beautiful photos from Anna and George’s wedding as much as we do. Thanks Kreative Angle Photography and congrats to the newlyweds!

Red, Black and Gold Winter Wedding at the Magnolia Hotel by DC Stanley Photography

Wednesday, December 17th, 2014

How’s THIS for a proposal story? “It was a night of reliving ‘firsts’—a Rockets game (our first official meeting), dinner at Vic & Anthony’s (our first official date), drinks at Hotel Zaza…,” says bride Brie Anna. “On a balcony overlooking the Museum District, he surprised me with a hand-drawn charcoal portrait of the two of us. The entire portrait was black and white, EXCEPT for a canary-yellow diamond engagement ring placed on my ring finger within the picture. My eyes were instantly drawn to the yellow image and I turned to find Craig down on one knee!” The couple’s December wedding, with its Catholic church ceremony and “lounge-feel” Magnolia Hotel reception—“NO traditional seating—cocktail-style vignettes and comfortable couches,” the bride recounts—captured the festiveness of the season, as did the surprise “flash mob” organized for the groom! Congratulations to the happy couple, and thanks to DC Stanley Photography for the fantastic photos of the fabulous winter wedding.

Romantic White and Red Wedding at Chateau Polonez by Civic Photos

Tuesday, December 2nd, 2014

If you fell helplessly in love with this ridiculously gorgeous couple’s retro-chic engagement shoot by Civic Photos, just wait until you see their wedding! Houston bride Kristy and her groom Desmond wanted to give their guests a glimpse of what it would be like to attend a romantic wedding in a French chateau and, “Chateau Polonez provided the perfect ambiance,” she says. Kristy looked like a dream in a stunning fit-and-flare lace gown with a Swarovski beaded belt from Winnie Couture and show-stopping Christian Louboutin sheer, sparkling pumps. And dashing Desmond more than held his own. Looking for winter wedding inspiration?  Take a cue from Kristy and Desmond’s creamy ivory, white and deep red palette–a perfect color combo for cold-season festivities. Big thanks to fine photographers Saul Munoz and Barett Henry of Civic Photos, and our most sincere congrats to Kristy and Desmond, we wish you two the best!
