When famed event designer Todd Fiscus, of Todd Events (with locations in Dallas and Houston), tied the knot with longtime love Ceron–he of the renowned eponymous Houston hair salon–you better believe the pair, and their delighted guests, celebrated in supremely chic style. The couple’s New Year’s Eve wedding, held in Manhattan’s Glasshouses (an ultra-cool glass-walled venue overlooking the city’s nighttime sparkle), was an intimate affair for 100 beloved guests. But the event itself was most definitely grand, with its floral entranceway, gleaming black taper candles, accents of gold and crystal, and, apropos of the holiday, plenty of Champagne and caviar. We wish the newlyweds a lifetime of happiness, and are so thrilled to have Todd Events as a Weddings in Houston partner. Congratulations, Todd and Ceron!

D. Jones Photography and the I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian—two things that go together like true love and weddings! David Jones, the man behind award-winning Houston photo studio D. Jones Photography, is not just our go-to guy for shooting the GORGEOUS images you’ve seen of our signature I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian. He also happens to be one of Houston’s most in-demand wedding photographers. A bit about this fine Houston photographer, in his own words:
“I tend to be more of a purist, rather than a trendy photographer. Having a fine art background, and having been taught the classical approach through my work in the profession–these experiences have allowed me to fine-tune the balance between properly lit and posed images, along with fun candids.
After 22 years as a professional photographer, I still love the process and the excitement that revolves around the experience. I have a genuine love of getting to know what makes each couple work and making the process as efficient and comfortable as possible.”
And here’s the coolest part: This week, Jones will become one very lucky bride’s engagement-shoot photographer!
Oh yes, darlings, we’re at it again. As we get ready to unveil the magnificent I Do! Bridal Soiree at The Corinthian on Thursday, April 17, we’re in a very…generous mood. So we’ve teamed up with D. Jones Photography to announce an AWESOME giveaway: One bride who purchases her $25 presale tickets by 9 p.m. this Sunday, April 6, will win a $1,000 D. JONES PHOTOGRAPHY ON-LOCATION ENGAGEMENT SHOOT!
Tickets to our exclusive spring cocktail party and bridal fantasyscape are strictly limited and will sell out. Snag yours today, and you may just win our prize! Winner will be announced on Monday, April 7. Good luck, loves!

There’s a certain, special, sense-of-mystery romance that only online dating can create. Just ask recent bride Vanessa, who spoke by phone to eHarmony match Eric almost every day for THREE MONTHS before meeting him face-to-face. Luckily, their in-person meeting was just as romantic as those many, many phone calls, and almost two years to the day they first laid eyes on each other, the pair wed in front of 250 loved ones at a magnificent
celebration. While Vanessa says that selecting her song list and making her seating chart were no piece of cake, the wedding itself was pure sweetness, done up in elegant shades of ivory and blush, Vanessa radiant in her Maggie Sottero gown from Brickhouse Bridal
. But let us go ahead and let Ama Photography & Cinema’s
photos tell the story of this lovely couple’s special day. Best wishes, Vanessa & Eric!

“He truly is my hero,” says Jamie of her firefighter hubby James, whom she wed in a fabulous fall affair at Hotel ZaZa, in front of 130 of the couple’s nearest and dearest. Looking stunning in her sparkling Winnie Couture gown, glamorous updo and fire-engine-red Louboutins (love!!), Jamie said her vows to handsome James—no slouch himself in his sleek Vera Wang tux—before throwing her arms around him for a first dance to Etta James’ classic, “At Last.” Big thanks to Motley Melange for photos that perfectly capture the “Old Hollywood” glamour of this gorgeous Houston wedding—and BIG congratulations to the newlyweds!

You know who loved her “very personal wedding—with most things having been made by family and friends”? Bride Amanda, that’s who.

And we hope you do, too.

For their fall wedding, Houstonians Katheryne and Casey knew they wanted “a small, intimate ceremony so that we could have a meaningful event that focused on our family, and so our four dogs could participate,” the bride says. What better spot, then, for their vows, than the autumn-leaf-and-rose-petal-strewn backyard of their Houston Heights home? Shot by Aisha Khan of Ama by Aisha Photography & Cinema (who just happened to be our AWESOME official show photographer at the Jan. 26 I Do! Bridal Soiree at the Royal Sonesta Hotel Houston), the couple’s nuptials are the very picture of relaxed revelry and vintage-touched fun. We couldn’t be happier to share their special day, and lovely pix!

Q: What do you do when you’re planning a wedding on a tight budget and can’t afford expensive rentals and fancy decorations? A: Make just about everything out of paper! For Kristina’s wedding to Jody, the bride’s friends pitched in to source or craft everything from placemats to paper flowers to pinwheel favors. The results? A delightful landscape of sweet, sentimental, DIY decor and charming vintage touches, along with sweet, creamy floral accents by Something Special in Flowers. And baby, this bride knows how to rock a true “something blue” mani! Big congrats to Kristina and Jody, one of the cutest couples we’ve ever seen.

Four Seasons Las Vegas catering manager Nicole readily admits that her event-planning experience was both a blessing and a curse when it came time to prepare for her own wedding. “Being an event planner, there were so many ideas. Then when one was selected, I would want to change it for a more cost-effective option. Experience and knowing how many options there were made choosing very difficult. That’s why I was kicked off [the job] and my mom and planner”—Kat Creech, of Houston’s Kat Creech Events—“took my vision and created the perfect day!” The bride’s dream wedding to her beloved Cham (whom she met by boldly strutting up and introducing herself, upon catching sight of his handsome mug at a local pub—let that be a lesson to you, ladies!) is a mystical garden of multiple delights, set inside the window-lined space of a historic Houston theater. From the jewel-tone centerpieces, suspended birdcages, Spanish moss and floral peacocks to the brooch bouquets and stained-glass windows, Nicole and Cham’s elegant Houston wedding is the perfect balance of lush natural bounty and sublime sparkle. We hope you’ll agree, and that you’ll join us in swooning over photos from ALTF Photographers, and in wishing these two a lifetime of love and happiness! And don’t forget to visit Kat Creech Events at this Sunday’s I Do! Bridal Soiree at the Royal Sonesta Hotel, for details on how Creech and her crew can transform your wedding fantasy into reality, just like she did for lucky (and savvy) bride Nicole.
