Pastel and Gold Wedding by Serendipity Photography

Monday, August 22nd, 2016

There’s nothing like the Red River Rivalry…or a true love story that comes from it. Anne and Jacob met during the TX-OU Weekend—a very important longtime tradition where the Texas Longhorns go up against rivals the Oklahoma Sooners in a football showdown at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. Anne and her girlfriends were at Hotel ZaZa Dallas taking part in the typical rivalry weekend activities, which included trying to capture a photo with one of the live gold statues. Ah, and here comes Jacob…a chivalrous knight in shining armor offering to be their impromptu photographer. In that moment, Anne and Jacob each found the one. Let’s fast-forward and set the scene a few years later: Anne and Jacob are now living together. One exceptionally normal day at home, Anne is doing a little laundry…when she hears Jacob having a very interesting conversation on the phone with his father (Jacob had no clue Anne was home listening). So, doing what any girl would do in this situation…Anne comes around the corner to see what he’s up to and offers a simple, “Hi,” totally taking Jacob by surprise! Anne remembers, “He stopped dead in his tracks, looking guilty, quickly told his dad he would call him back and stuffed a box into his bag.” Oh, Jacob. However, Jacob was so excited to make Anne his wife that he just couldn’t wait any longer and popped the question right there. Anne was absolutely floored…and of course said yes! The two had an incredible Houston wedding celebration, which began with a delicious rehearsal dinner at Brennan’s, and commenced with a beautiful church ceremony followed by a reception at, of course, Hotel ZaZa! Anne and Jacob truly cherish Hotel ZaZa, and are in total agreement that the chic Museum District property is “practically our second home.” Their pastel and gold wedding was simply to die for. The celebration was made perfectly complete with a decadent and detailed four-tiered cake (and a Superman-theme groom’s cake!) by Who Made The Cake, and some seriously breathtaking floral designs and crystal decor by Plants N’ Petals (do you see these centerpieces right now?!). Anne wore a stunning Lazaro mermaid gown from Ivory Bridal Atelier down the aisle and, let’s face it, she looked gorgeous! Thank you to Serendipity Photography for capturing the night so perfectly. We wish this couple all the best and more!

Gold & Black Wedding at Hotel ZaZa by Civic Photos

Friday, July 29th, 2016

Sharon and Manuel’s fate was sealed when they were attending a salsa dancing event one night in March of 2012. Manuel’s best friend instantly saw how perfect the two would be together, so he introduced them. A few years later, Manuel knew he was more than ready to make Sharon his wife and had a surprise proposal planned. One January evening, the couple made a trip to Hermann Park in Houston’s Museum District. Manuel led Sharon over to a romantic little gazebo and asked Sharon to be his, forever. He even hired a photographer to capture the moment from a hidden location (bonus points!) But Manuel’s plans didn’t stop there. He had dinner arrangements for them to get to…where their families were waiting to celebrate! Seriously, could this engagement get any sweeter? The two said vows and celebrated their love story with a ceremony and reception at Houston’s ultra-chic Hotel ZaZa. Their gold and black color palette was a perfectly stunning complement to the hotel’s deeply romantic tones. The couple remembers having the most divine wedding cakes, courtesy of Who Made The Cake, for their celebration: “The main cake was made with Italian cream with vanilla ice cream in one tier and raspberry cake with raspberry filling in another”—and to add to that decadence—“The [Star Wars theme] groom’s cake was chocolate on chocolate.” Yum. Sharon recounts: “One of my favorite moments was when my husband surprised me with a song, playing the conga with the band. It was amazing!” We wish the newlyweds a life filled with love and even more wonderful memories. Thank you, Civic Photos, for capturing the beauty, joy and exhilaration of Manuel and Sharon’s celebration!

Blush & Gold Wedding by Christa Elyce Photography

Tuesday, November 24th, 2015

From high school acquaintances to college sweethearts, Jessica and Lukas hit it off at a fateful New Year’s Eve party, where the pair spent the whole evening talking beside a crackling campfire. Four years later, the two lovebirds graduated together from Texas A&M–and not long after, Lukas surprised Jessica by popping the question: “He decided to take me to the restaurant we went on our first big date,” recalls the bride. “I somehow was completely clueless to what was really happening.” Once they finished eating, Lukas got down on one knee and asked Jessica to be his wife… “Obviously, I said yes!” Afterwards, the couple met up with family and friends at the fabulous Hotel ZaZa to celebrate their newly-engaged status. According to Jessica, “the whole night was absolutely perfect.” Fast-forward to the pair’s summer wedding at The Parador, complete with an emotional ceremony (“we were both bawling”) and a romantic reception with an “eclectic feel” that was achieved with lots of candles, mercury glass and blush flower arrangements. Check out their GORGEOUS photos from Christa Elyce Photography below!

When Kelsie and Michael were planning their Houston wedding, two words came to mind: classy and fabulous. Their choice of venue? Hotel ZaZa, of course. The Arts District property’s sophistication perfectly meshed with their color palette of black, pink and gold. “I wanted a fun wedding that guests would talk about for years to come,” the bride says. The couple and their guests enjoyed a fun-filled evening of dining and dancing–accompanied by neon sunglasses and glow sticks. The night ended with a BOOM (literally)–when a cannon showered guests with celebratory confetti. Sounds like a blast, right? Check out the lovely photos by D. Jones Photography below. Congrats and best wishes to the newlyweds!

WEDDINGS IN HOUSTON Spring 2015 | Real Wedding Feature

Katie & Mitchell ~ March 8, 2014

Jewelry designer Katie Decker has a passion for ornamentation, so it’s no surprise the bride selected La Colombe d’Or’s magnificently ornate, oak-paneled Grand Salon to celebrate her marriage to high-school sweetheart Mitchell. Having already designed her own rose-gold engagement ring, Katie took her inspiration from the romantic hue, bringing the color to her cake, her invitations, even her blush-toned Ines Di Santo gown from beloved Houston salon Mia Bridal Couture. At the couple’s elegant reception, French-style furniture surrounding the dance floor “made it feel as if you had gone back in time and entered a Belle-Epoque-style club,” Katie says. And while dining and dancing in that lavish environment was decidedly delightful, the bride says her favorite memory was “walking down the aisle and seeing Mitchell for the first time, with all our friends and family in one place. It was so surreal…and such a happy occasion.”
