Sidney and Richard are living proof that “yes, you actually CAN find true love at a night club,” notes the bride. Their unexpected meet-cute one Saturday evening made quite the lasting impression, and Richard made sure to ask for Sidney’s phone number by the end of the night. In the months to follow, Sidney and Rick (as she calls him) left their nightclub days behind and discovered a mutual passion for health and fitness–and meanwhile, for each other. Says Sidney: “Despite having all odds stacked against us, we gave true love a shot on the dance floor and we couldn’t be any happier or healthier than we are today!” Less than two years later, Rick proposed in his driveway right after the couple had just returned home from an intense sweat session, but neither one cared: “As soon as Rick had the ring, he couldn’t wait to pop the question.” The two wed in an intimate ceremony attended by 100 close family members and friends, followed by a Chinese tea ceremony and dinner reception at the romantic Heather’s Glen. “Ours was truly a fairy tale wedding,” the couple agrees. Congrats, Sidney and Rick!

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON Spring 2015 | Real Wedding Feature
Kelli & A.J. ~ May 17, 2014
Having begun their courtship at the University of Georgia, it’s no surprise that Kelli and A.J. wanted their wedding to “feel like an elegant garden party at a Southern home.” As the bride describes, “The ambiance began with a drive up scenic River Oaks Blvd. with Houston’s most beautiful homes,” and continued with a gracious country-club setting, decorated with soft-pink peonies, mercury-glass votives, twinkle-lights and French armchairs. A reception menu filled with Southern favorites—fried green tomatoes, shrimp and grits, pulled-pork sliders—nourished guests for a night of dancing to live music. As the night progressed, guests enjoyed hand-rolled Cuban cigars on the starlit patio, and late-night chicken-and-waffle bites. Jo Ann Schwartz Woodward (of wedding consulting firm Schwartz & Woodward) was great at listening to our vision and implementing it flawlessly,” Kelli says. “It was truly the wedding of our dreams!”

Earlier this week, hot Houston decor, floral and fine-event-rentals outfit A Memorable Event hosted celebrity wedding planner Mindy Weiss and famed international floral designer Jeff Leatham, along with a selection of Houston’s top event professionals and media…and WHAT a memorable event it was. We were thrilled to attend this lovely luncheon and design showcase (yup, that’s a picture of our very own Radhika Day, founder and publisher of Weddings in Houston, cozied up to the brilliant Jeff Leatham). And, after all, who wouldn’t be? Both Weiss (wedding planner to stars including Adam Sandler, Eva Longoria, Jessica Simpson and MANY more) and Leatham (artistic director of the Four Seasons Hotel George V in Paris and author of “Jeff Leatham: Visionary Art and Floral Design,” among other gorgeous flower-focused books) spoke extensively about their lives, work and approaches to event design. And WE ate it up. Along with lots of yumminess from the talented catering crew at the Westin Galleria, host hotel for this fabulous event. As for the floral and tabletop displays? WOW. Just…WOW. Thanks so much to the wonderful staff of A Memorable Event for a fantastic day of inspiration, elegance and knowledge!
