This Houston Party Band Totally Rocks!

We’d like to take a moment to introduce you to The Moment, a Houston party band with a very special gift for turning wedding receptions into totally unforgettable dance-all-night bashes!!

Heading up a nine-piece outfit of accomplished, versatile musicians who truly love what they do, Scott Sofer is a master MC and an expert at “reading the room.” Not only will this amazing Houston party band get your guests on their feet, but they’ll take them through a journey of fun, from first introductions to last waltz (or rhumba, or boogie, or electric slide…you get the picture!). We can’t say enough good stuff about this superb wedding band, who can shift seamlessly from Queen to Daft Punk to Al Green and countless other beloved artists, all while making every guest feel comfortable, energized and eager for more! This is NOT your mother’s party band, friends. The Moment brings a club gig experience to your big day, in the absolute coolest way. Give them a call or email them to schedule a consultation, and find out more about who they are, what they do, and how they can ensure that your guests will be talking about your wedding for years to come. And make sure to tell them you found them at Weddings in Houston!

Magnolia Hotel $750 “Romance Getaway” GIVEAWAY

magnolia hotel houston romance weekend giveaway exterior downtown

The Magnolia Hotel Houston is not just one of our favorite downtown venues for sophisticated, cosmopolitan weddings…it’s also the sponsor of this week’s fabulous $750 “Romance Getaway” GIVEAWAY!

Nestled in the heart of downtown Houston, just across the street from stately Christ Church Cathedral, the Magnolia Hotel blends Houston history with contemporary elegance in a one-of-a-kind setting. Major renovations to the hotel, completed earlier this year, take their design inspiration from the building’s history as a former newspaper/radio conglomerate. A 1926 historic landmark, this Marriott Tribute Portfolio property is the former home of the Houston Post Dispatch newspaper, and, later, the corporate offices of Shell Oil Co. Today, you’ll find a “Texas Parlor” atmosphere at the Magnolia, with an “ink-inspired” palette of dark charcoals and deep indigos contrasted with gleaming wood surfaces and distinctive ironwork.

Host all of your visiting guests at this exceptional Houston hotel, located in the center of Houston’s rich arts and culture scene, just steps away from renowned attractions, limitless dining options, eclectic shopping and bustling nightlife. And take advantage of the Magnolia Hotel’s smaller event spaces, private dining options, fabulous cuisine and superb service, for your rehearsal dinner, bridal shower and/or engagement celebration!

Black, White And Gold Classic Wedding At The Astorian

She adores his playful sense of humor. He admires her deep intelligence. And we are wowed by Nikki and Dalton’s beautiful, classic wedding at The Astorian, with its timeless palette of white, black and gold, captured by the always amazing Ama By Aisha. The couple’s love story started when they were introduced to each other at a volleyball scrimmage the week before starting high school together. They dated all through high school, and kept their romance going (long distance) through college. Eventually they reunited in Houston, where their relationship had a chance to fully blossom, and one unforgettable evening, Dalton asked Nikki to be his bride, after a romantic dinner date. For their fall marriage celebration, the couple kept things timeless and elegant, with a black and gold wedding palette, taking advantage of The Astorian’s “glamorous, industrial, Art Deco feel,” the bride says. “We used blacks and gold for the bridesmaids dresses, linens and table settings, paired with white florals, and lots of greenery to pull it together,” in a classic wedding evening filled with fine food from Cordua Catering, and dancing to a live band. We’re so happy to feature this gorgeous Houston couple, and their gorgeous wedding. Congratulations, Nikki & Dalton! Click here to read the rest of this post »
