Pink, Black & Gold Wedding at Hotel ZaZa by D. Jones Photography

Thursday, June 25th, 2015

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!

Bridal Preview: Kenneth Pool Spring 2014

Thursday, August 22nd, 2013

If there’s one word we can associate with Kenneth Pool’s Spring 2014 bridal collection, it’s…glamour. These are no fun-and-flirty frocks or garden-nymph gowns. These wedding dresses are straight-up spotlight-stealers. Look for lots of lustrous satin, hip-hugging drop-waist and fit-and-flare silhouettes, plus a few queenly ballgowns for good measure. While, unlike in collections past, bling is at a minimum in this new Kenneth Pool showing, when beadwork does make an appearance in the collection, it is magnificently delicate and detailed, as in a gorgeous, shimmering cap-sleeve gown—the showstopper of the collection. See designer Amsale Aberra’s newest Kenneth Pool gowns when Belle Mariée Bridal hosts a September trunk show. Check the salon’s site for more details. Meanwhile, check out our favorite Kenneth Pool Spring 2014 gowns!

Kenneth Pool Fall 2012 Collection ~ Houston Wedding Blog
As 2012 bridal collections hit local salons, we’ll be offering you glimpses at some of our favorites. Fun, right? We think so!

Let’s just go ahead and kick things off with Kenneth Pool —a favorite of Houston brides, who will find plenty to go ga-ga over in the sumptuous spring and fall 2012 bridal collections. Designed by the exceptionally talented Amsale Aberra (also the artiste behind the Christos and Amsale bridal lines), Kenneth Pool spring 2012 (below) will not disappoint brides who crave the intricate crystal beading that gives the designer’s wedding gowns their signature sparkle. Among our favorites is the alluring “Alana” silk taffeta ballgown, with its heavily beaded bodice and absolutely gorgeous draped skirt. Some stunning fit-and-flare and trumpet styles, too, featuring dramatically bustled trains, and, again, that spectacular (but never over-the-top) beading on bodices, belts and train appliqués.

For fall 2012 (above), which just walked the runway at October’s New York International Bridal Market, Kenneth Pool turned up the volume—as in voluminous skirts and bustles, full of tiers, layers and big fluffy ruffles, many with a modern asymmetrical slant. It’s an exciting new angle for Kenneth Pool wedding dresses, and we LOVE it.

See these gowns for YOURSELF this Friday and Saturday, when Houston’s very own Mia Bridal Couture hosts a Kenneth Pool Fall 2012 trunk show. A Kenneth Pool style expert will be on hand, and brides who purchase during the show will receive a 10% discount (no small savings, with Kenneth Pool’s couture gowns in the $4,000-$10,000 range, and beyond). Appointments are required; call 713.622.2022 to make yours!

To Do This Week: Kenneth Pool Trunk Show @ Mia Bridal Couture

PHOTOS COURTESY KENNETH POOL

Dramatic, glamorous, showstopping. These are the kinds of words you’ll find associated with Kenneth Pool bridal gowns. Kenneth Pool creative director Amsale Aberra says she loves being able to express “the more elaborate side” of her personality with the high-profile line, and it shows. The vintage-crystal embroidery? The sparkling jewel-appliqué details? The oceans of tulle and billows of gleaming duchess satin? These are no wallflower wedding gowns, baby. These wedding dresses command ATTENTION.

Like Bethenny Frankel’s for instance. The star of Bravo’s Real Housewives of New York City recently got hitched in the strapless satin “Romantic” from Kenneth Pool’s fall 2010 collection. And if you think your bridal gown’s gonna need alterations, Frankel was almost eight months pregnant when she slipped into that snug, trumpet-style stunner!

OK, enough about reality-TV stars. Make Kenneth Pool part of your own wedding-day reality this weekend, when Mia Bridal Couture hosts a very special Kenneth Pool trunk show Friday and Saturday, June 25-26. Call  713.622.2022 or e-mail info@miabridalcouture.com now to schedule an appointment to meet with a Kenneth Pool consultant and try on a couple of these knockout gowns yourself (like maybe the “Knockout,” for instance, with hand-beaded tulle, silk organza and a dreamy chapel train). And enjoy 15% off your gown purchase when you buy during this event (and we do mean ENJOY—a 15% discount is nothing to sneeze at for gowns that tend to be somewhere in $4,000 to many-more-thousands-than-that range).
